A New Alternative to Allergy Treatment: Sublingual Immunotherapy
After diagnosis of inhalant allergies via a scratch or blood test we offer sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT). SLIT treats the cause of allergy by giving small doses of the allergen to the patient. SLIT is given as drops under the tongue. Research shows that when an allergen is presented this way, the immune system learns to tolerate the allergy. SLIT is proven, with over 60 clinical trials which shows its effectiveness. It is endorsed by the World Health Organization, the World Allergy Association, and the Cochrane Collaboration. SLIT is effective, safe, and well tolerated.
