A New Alternative Allergy Treatment
Have you heard of Sublingual Immunotherapy?
Dr. Erika would like everyone to know that you don’t have to suffer with allergies, and you don’t have to undergo years of allergy shots. You also don’t need to depend on antihistamines and other rescue medications which only address the symptoms of allergies.
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is simply a therapy that involves putting drops under your tongue prior to the season that troubles you most. Once your allergies are diagnosed, the allergy lab will create drops for you to use at home. Like shots, these drops directly change the body’s ability to react with allergens. After putting them under your tongue on a daily basis, the immune system learns to tolerate the allergen.
SLIT is proven to be effective, safe and well tolerated by both adults and children. Most people experience noticeable relief within the first few months of starting treatment. As with all allergy immunotherapy, long term, lasting results require 3 to 5 years of treatment. Research shows that committing to the full therapy can result in permanent symptom relief.
SLIT is available here through Dr. Erika and the cost of the drops is covered by most medical plans.
