Immunotherapy for Allergies
Feel like your allergies are going nuts lately? You’re not alone.
If you’re watching the news, you’ll notice that allergies are on the rise. Food allergies, for example, increased by 50% in children between 1997 and 2011.
While there are several theories as to why this is, you’re probably more interested in how to prevent them from interfering with your quality of life.
Immunotherapy is a technique to help prevent allergic responses by gradually getting your body used to allergens.
The first step is identifying your triggers through allergy testing. Then, through allergy shots or tablets, you slowly re-train your body to become used to allergens and control your allergic reaction. Over time, your symptoms will reduce in severity.
