Drops for Allergies Mesa AZ
A large chunk of the US population deals with the discomfort and limitations of allergies and asthma. Every allergy season seems to hit patients hard. Worse, commonly used medications like Advair, Allegra and Zyrtec only seem to help a little for the severe sufferers.
Resolution or complete control is just not the norm.
But I’ll bet that, if I asked you what organ plays an important role in allergies and asthma, the gut wouldn’t be your first answer.
Why the gut?
Because 2/3 of the immune system is centered around the gut. It was designed like this because the vast majority of the foreign material that you are exposed to comes from the stuff you shove in your mouth.
So what if the stuff you were putting into your mouth was very carefully crafted to trick the immune system in your gut into behaving the way it is supposed to?
Sounds pretty cool, right? That is exactly the goal of sublingual immunotherapy, also known as drops for allergies.
This approach to allergies here in the United States, however, lags far behind Europe. In Europe, drops for allergies have been used successfully for many years.
To give you an idea of what drops for allergies can help with:
- Improves asthma
- Decrease rhinitis or rhinoconjunctivitis symptoms
- Lower medication use for asthma and allergies
- Improve conjunctivitis symptoms
- Improves quality of life in asthma and allergy sufferers
- Can improve peanut allergies in children
- Can help fight dust mite allergies
That’s a pretty impressive list for something as safe as drops for allergies.
Allergy drops are a natural mixture of allergens (dust mites, pollens from grasses, trees and weeks, pet dander, etc.) that we all breathe or come in contact with every day mixed with a simple glycerin saline solution and then placed, a few drops at a time, under your tongue, which are commonly referred to as allergy drops. This process, known as Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) has been approved by the World Health Organization and has been in use in Europe (where 50% of the patients on immunotherapy are prescribed SLIT) for over 60 years.
