Treatment & Procedure Options
Immunotherapy trains the body to reduce these false alarms. By exposing your immune system to increasingly stronger doses of an allergen through injections or drops, your team of tiny bodyguards will gradually learn the difference between the allergen and an actual health hazard.
Unlike other treatment options, immunotherapy targets the cause of the underlying condition rather than the symptoms, thereby reducing the effects of your allergies and improving your overall health.
According to research, the effects of immunotherapy can last 5–10 years or longer, allowing you to enjoy daily activities outdoors or the company of pets without watery eyes or a scratchy throat affecting your quality of life.
