What is Immunotherapy?
Allergen immunotherapy (IT) is a proactive therapeutic modality directed towards diminishing a patient’s sensitivity to allergens. IT consists of exposing patients to increasing amounts of the allergens they are sensitive to throughout the course of treatment which can last from 1 to 5 years. Immunotherapy desensitizes the patient to the allergens that trigger allergic symptoms ultimately allowing patients to be exposed to these allergens without any subsequent allergic reaction. The results of IT can be life-changing and dramatically improve quality of life.
Why Choose Immunotherapy?
Immunotherapy is the only proactive treatment solution for allergies. Over-the-counter or prescription medications are reactive methods of treatment that only address symptoms after a reaction has already erupted. This perpetual cycle brings a long list of side effects, dependency, and expenses. The remaining alternative is avoidance of allergens, limiting experiences and freedom one has in daily life.  Immunotherapy actually builds patients’ immunity to allergens instead of masking symptoms.
