Approximately 30% of all adults and 40% of all children suffer from allerfies. Seasonal and environmental allergies are by far the most prevalent and treatable among all allergy sufferers.
Sneezed 100 times today? Yep, it’s definitely SPRING Time in Florida! We are proud to offer allergy testing at Synergistiq Integrative Health.
3 Step Allergy Protocol
Getting An Allergy Test
Understanding what is triggering an allergic reaction and identifying those triggers is crucial. We begin with a diagnostic allergy evaluation.
Our team will then begin a series of immunology injections to re-educate the immune system and prevent it from overreacting to allergic triggers.
Feeling Good Again
Allergies are a true hindrance to everyday life and Dr. Verma and her team want to begin you on your journey of wellness. Immunotherapy is an incredibly effective way of tackling anything from seasonal allergies to lifelong allergic triggers.
How It Works
Upon arrival you will fill out a diagnostic evaluation describing your symptoms, history, etc. Our nurse will then take a small prick blood sample from your finger. This sample will be sent to our lab for testing. We then get the info back from the lab identifying allergic factors and offer you immunology injections. The first few will be done at our office followed by the remaining treatment being done from home.
Immunotherapy formulations are prepared for each patient based on the results of an allergy test. The treatment can be administered by injection (allergy shots) or with sublingual drops. A typical course of allergy immunotherapy will take a few years to complete, but it is the only treatment that provides long-lasting relief, with the potential to become totally allergy free.
SUBCUTANEOUS INJECTIONS (SCIT)
With subcutaneous immunotherapy, an allergy serum made up of traces of common allergens (grass pollens, tree pollens, etc.) is injected under the first layers of skin so it can absorb into the blood stream. With sublingual immunotherapy, the serum is deposited under the tongue where it absorbs into the bloodstream through cells in the mouth.
As the body is exposed to this serum, it may become desensitized to major allergens so that it will stop overreacting to them when it encounters them in nature.
SUBLINGUAL DROPS (SLIT)
SLIT is widely considered more user-friendly than shots and can be taken in the comfort of home rather than at a medical clinic. Studies have shown sublingual immunotherapy to be safe for kids less than age 5. It is also a good option for people who travel often, as they can be taken on the go. SLIT has been supported by dozens of clinical trials performed throughout the world. SLIT is used in many countries, particularly those in Europe. In fact, more than 45 percent of Europeans who receive allergy treatment opt for sublingual immunotherapy. SLIT is often a popular choice in the United States because of its effectiveness, its safety record, and the fact that it can be dosed at home. SLIT is affirmed by WHO (the World Health Organization) and ARIA guidelines (Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma).
