Allergies include reactions to foods and/or outdoor environmental allergens. Food allergies and sensitivities are tested to determine if there are abnormal immune responses to specific foods. Most common food allergies and 16 sensitivities include dairy, wheat/gluten, eggs, corn and soy. Occasionally, there are sensitivities to even healthy foods, such as fruits and vegetables. Once we have your results, we help you create an individualized diet planso that you can avoid these foods, repair your gut, and decrease inflammation and irritation for your entire body. Our doctors can also test for outdoor environmental allergies through a simple blood test and treat them with a flavorless spray, without shots or skin tests. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) helps to treat the cause of the allergy instead of just treating the common symptoms such as runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, and sneezing. Immunotherapyis designed to gradually desensitize your immune system to specific allergens. Patients receive small doses of a specific allergen(s) – not enough to cause a full-blown allergic reaction, but enough to build up a tolerance. Not only does this help allergies, it also calms and strengthens your immune system. Those with autoimmune thyroid disease have better hormone control from the immune repair. Those with frequent colds, flus, asthma, or sinus infections get ill less often.
