At Optimal Wellness MD, we work with Allergy Choices (www.allergychoices.com)
to provide our patients with a safe, convenient, and effective way of managing their allergies. Instead of allergy shots and painful skin tests, we determine what you are allergic to with a simple blood test and use that information to create custom solutions used for sublingual immunotherapy. We have found this system to be very effective at preventing allergy symptoms and much easier to do than allergy shots.
The cost is very affordable. The patient sprays the solution under their tongue 3 times per day and the body responds by developing a tolerance to the allergen, whether food allergies or environmental allergies.
Change the disease
Less than five percent of allergy sufferers in the U.S. receive immunotherapy — the only treatment that changes the underlying disease. The other 95% avoid their allergens, suffer, or take medication to mask the symptoms — and then go on to repeat this cycle of discomfort, year after year.
Sublingual immunotherapy treatment gradually helps your body build a tolerance to the substances that cause your allergies. Over time, your body learns to tolerate these substances, symptoms decrease, and the need for allergy medication is often eliminated. This is especially important because untreated allergy can often develop into other conditions, including asthma, eczema, and other chronic issues.
Make it safe & simple
Allergy drops are a safe, convenient way to build your body’s tolerance to harmful allergens, especially when compared to other methods. Because the dose is matched to each patient’s specific allergies and level of sensitivity, there’s no guessing game about too high or too low of a dose — reducing risk of reactions or ineffective treatment. Because it’s self-administered, treatment easily fits into the lives of even the busiest people, with fewer office visit requirements and one simple dose schedule to follow.
- Treatment can be taken anywhere
- Dosing instructions are consistent throughout treatment
- Fewer office visits
- Treats multiple allergens all at once
- Matched to the patient’s “allergic fingerprint” for safety and effectiveness
Provide lasting benefit
The benefit of changing the body’s immune response to allergens is that the results can last long after treatment is done, instead of a temporary fix. That’s not the only benefit:
- Affordable and convenient
- Reduces other allergy-related medication use
- Creates long-term tolerance
- Improves the quality of life
Allergies — both food and environmental — are not something you have to just live with. With an “elegantly simple,” cost-effective treatment, it’s possible to live free of allergy symptoms that get in the way of enjoying life. Sublingual Immunotherapy makes that possible for patients with a wide variety of allergies and diverse lifestyles.
