Up to 25 percent of the population in the industrialized world suffers from allergies, and the number is rising. Allergies are reactions of the immune system to substances that, in most people, cause no symptoms. Allergies occur due to an immune response that reacts towards natural substances in the environment the same way it would react towards something harmful. The reason that the immune system reacts to a harmless substance is unknown. The respiratory system is usually affected if a person is allergic to tree pollen, animals (such as pets and farm animals), molds and house dust mites. Allergic symptoms include sneezing, itching, watery eyes and nose, and wheezing. Hay fever (rhinitis) and/or asthma are the most common results of respiratory allergies.
SKIN RELATED ALLERGY:
Allergy to substances such as metals and fragrances and allergy to proteins such as latex affect the skin and is known as allergic eczema or contact allergy (contact dermatitis). The symptoms are usually itching, burning, reddening, and blister at the affected area. Allergic eczema most often occurs in early childhood but also appears in older children and adults.
The most common food related allergies are: cow’s milk, egg, soy, yeast, corn, wheat, and oat. Eczema, diarrhea, nausea, and, in some cases, anaphylaxis, are potential symptoms of food-related allergies. The best way to treat food allergies is avoidance and or rotation. You cannot build a blocking antibody to foods. We found that in the milder cases of food allergies, symptoms are often relieved after the first vial of inhalant allergy drops.
WHAT’S IN THE DROPS?
The Allergy Drops contain the same antigens that are used in allergy injections. It requires the administration under the tongue instead of intradermally. Ironically, the same substances (allergens) that cause allergies are also used to treat them. The drops build up a blocking antibody against the antigens which cause the immune system to become less sensitive to the allergen, reducing symptoms when the same allergen is encountered in the future.
INDICATION FOR ALLERGY TREATMENT
Allergen immunization is usually indicated with:
• Allergy symptoms more than 2-3 months each year
• Frequent use of antihistamines, decongestant or inhalers
• Upper respiratory infections (e.g sinus infections), brochitis, strep throat or ear infections at least once a year
• Fatigue, snoring and restless sleep
• Sinus headaches
• Decreased sense of smell or hearing due to congestion
• Dark circles underneath the eyes
SIDE EFFECTS WITH THE USE OF ALLERGY INJECTIONS VS DROPS:
Allergy Drops have been around for over 60 years, primarily in Europe and there has not been a reported anaphylactic reaction in all years of usage. There is no chance of adverse reaction, therefore drops are safe enough to take at home on a daily basis without the supervision of a physician. Unlike shots, allergy drops are administered at home by the patient under the tongue. The drops are then carried into the lymphatic system and used by the immune system to make a blocking antibody. With allergy drops optimum improvement can occur in 3 months or less.
Allergy injections are injected into the body and are distributed into the blood stream. With allergy injections, you may experience itching and redness at the site of the injection, while others experience local swelling and soreness 8-12 hours after the injection. The build up process to the effective dosage usually takes 6 months to a year as long as the patient has consistent weekly visits. Allergy injections carry the risk of anaphylactic shock, which is potentially fatal.
