Oral sublingual allergy desensitization to treat allergies

Oral sublingual allergy desensitization treats the cause of allergies by giving small doses of the allergen to the patient.

What is It? Oral sublingual allergy desensitization treats the cause of allergies by giving small doses of the allergen to the patient. Exposure to these small doses over time balances the immunity or tolerance to the allergens and reduces the allergenic symptoms.

How Does It Work? Oral sublingual allergy desensitization are given as drops under the tongue. Research shows that when an allergen is presented in this way, the immune system learns to tolerate the allergen. The result is less allergy symptoms when the body is exposed to the allergy source such as airborne pollen or pet dander.

Oral Sublingual Allergy Desensitization or Allergy Injections: Like injection therapy, sublingual therapy directly changes the body’s ability to react with allergens. Allergy injections are effective, but need to be given in a physician’s office.  This inconvenience results in high drop off rates for many patients. Oral sublingual allergy desensitization offers a great alternative treatment option for people reluctant or unable to undergo allergy shots.

Oral Sublingual Therapy is Proven: With over 60 clinical trails proving efficacy, endorsement from the World Health Organization, the World Allergy Organization and the Cochrane Collaboration, oral sublingual therapy is proven to be effective, safe and well tolerated.

The Advantages: More convenient than shots. Experience lasting results and reduce your dependency on antihistamines that only address the symptoms of the allergy

Enjoy a better quality of life.  Patients regularly report fewer sick days away from school or work, better sleep, and a reduction in symptoms.
