This allergy season has been particularly troubling, and relief can feel hard to come by. Every sneeze, itchy nose, and watery eye can feel like your body is alerting you that your body is not enjoying your current surroundings. Living Wellness Medical Center offers sublingual immunotherapy, which can help relieve both seasonal and chronic allergies.
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is a form of immunotherapy that is similar to allergy injections. It is a process that involves administering liquid drops or a tablet of allergen extracts under the tongue. SLIT is an alternative treatment to allergy shots and is often referred to as “allergy drops.”
SLIT helps form a tolerance in the immune system to specific allergens by introducing them sublingually in small doses. SeroSLIT is individually formulated according to specific allergens the patient has. Sublingual immunotherapy is a safe, at-home treatment, making it an ideal option for seasonal or chronic allergy sufferers.
Immunotherapy is effective for adults and children with mild to moderate allergies. It has been widely used by allergists because it is an effective way to address the underlying cause. SLIT is an alternative therapy for those who are non-responsive to allergy medication, who have difficulty avoiding allergic triggers, and who want to avoid long-term use of medications. Though it is well-tolerated with minimal side effects, SeroSLIT is not recommended for those with severe uncontrolled asthma, heart conditions, lung conditions, and pregnant women.
At Living Wellness Medical Center, we use laboratory testing to determine the specific allergic triggers that affect each individual so that their SLIT prescription is made for their unique needs. If you’re interested in finding out if SeroSLIT could help you with your allergy symptoms, call 480-588-6856 to either book an appointment with your current provider or schedule a FREE brief meet and greet with one of our naturopathic doctors.
