- Allergen Immunotherapy is the most reliable and effective means of desensitizing your body to what you are allergic.
The actual substance that you react to is called an allergen. When an antigen attaches itself to your body’s cells,
you experience a bad reaction depending on your sensitivity to that specific antigen. By proper testing and formulating
a treatment plan using immunotherapy your physician and you can begin to treat your allergies. Over a period
of time your body will learn to build up its immunity to these allergies and your daily life with improve because you
feel less of the effects of your allergies. Immunotherapy is a 100% natural medication. Most treatments
you receive from your physician do not interfere with your allergy treatments. Our allergy technician and your
provider may explain this process in more detail.
- Once scheduled for a test it usually only takes 15 minutes to visually identify your allergies and document
your test results. Skin Testing identifies your specific Allergies and their severities.
- Children above the ages of two and adults can be tested for allergies. Women who are pregnant and or
breast-feeding, patients with uncontrollable asthma and patients medicating with beta-blockers
are discouraged from testing and therapy unless our physician has completed a short physical exam
and cleared their patient for testing.
