Immunotherapy/ Allergy Shots
Immunotherapy is the most efficient and effective treatment for people with severe allergies. It modifies the body’s response to allergens by preventing the allergic cascade. This means that you can control your allergies without medications. The ingredients in immune therapy come from natural sources. Results can be quickly achieved and last for years after the treatment is stopped. Allergy shots are given for 3-5 years, with monthly injections during the maintenance phase of treatment. The initial phase, or “buildup” phase lasts for two months. During buildup, allergy injections are generally given weekly. Allergy shots are covered by most insurance plans.
