What is an allergy and why do I have it now?

Your immune system provides a very valuable service in protecting your body from infection and disease. But your immune system can overreact to a harmless substance, releasing chemicals known as histamines, leukotrienes and prostaglandins. It is these chemicals that trigger the allergic symptoms you may be experiencing. An allergy can develop at any time in a person’s life, and they often develop when we’re young. Allergies often develop from a combination of factors, particularly genetics and environment. A child with one parent who has allergies has genetic predisposition that increases their risk of developing allergies by 50%. The risk increases to 70% if both the child’s parents are allergy sufferers.

Allergies can also lead to other medical conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Migraine headaches
  • Sleep disorders
  • Sinusitis (chronic nasal congestion)
  • Nasal polyps (non-cancerous, teardrop-shaped growths that form in the nose or sinuses)
Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is the best way to manage your allergies with the least amount of medication. You can break free of antihistamines or steroid treatments and gain a long-term solution to minimize your allergy symptoms.

During Immunotherapy, your doctor will inject small amounts of the substances that are causing your allergies under your skin, or it can be placed directly under your tongue. This helps your body to adjust to the allergen causing you trouble. The result is less allergy symptoms when you encounter the allergen in your daily life.

At first, you receive the treatment once a week as you work your way to what’s known as a maintenance dose. Once you reach the maintenance dose, your treatment will eventually move to once a month. After 1–3 years of therapy, you will have greatly reduced or eliminated your allergy symptoms and the need to take expensive medications to control them. It’s that simple.

Why Immunotherapy
  • According to Consumer Reports, only 1 in 4 allergy sufferers are highly satisfied with prescription medications, with the satisfaction rate for over-the- counter medication even lower.
  • Research shows that Immunotherapy + medication delivers a significant reduction in symptoms versus medication alone.
  • A recent study showed that parents of children with allergic rhinitis saved over $5,000.00 in treatment costs over 18 months when opting for Immunotherapy versus non-Immunotherapy treatments.
Immunotherapy = Real Savings

A recent study demonstrated the following cost reductions from receiving Immunotherapy versus other treatment options without Immunotherapy:

  • Year 1 : Symptoms Improve
  • Year 2 : Cost savings of 15%
  • Year 3 : Cost savings of 48%
