Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy Q & A

Enhanced Medical Centers

What are allergies?

People experience allergies when their immune systems overreact to substances, or allergens, that aren’t actually harmful to their body. When people come into contact with these allergens, they experience uncomfortable symptoms, including:

  • Coughing
  • Itching
  • Runny nose
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sneezing
  • Rash or hives

People with mild allergies might only need tissues or eye drops to alleviate their discomfort. However, if you have a severe allergy, exposure to allergens could be dangerous.

What causes allergies?

There isn’t clear evidence of why some people have allergies and others don’t. It’s also unclear why certain people have different types of allergy symptoms.

Allergies have many different triggers, including food, substances in the air, or scents. If you have a food allergy, eggs, nuts, and milk are the most common. If you’re sensitive to synthetic materials, the problem is often latex, perfume or cleaning products.

People also have environmental allergies to the following:

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Mold spores
  • Animal dander
  • Insect stings
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Cockroaches

While allergies can occur year-round, you might only experience seasonal allergies. If you’re allergic to specific plants, your symptoms worsen during certain times when their pollen counts are high and the plants are flourishing.

What is immunotherapy and how does it treat allergies?

Immunotherapy is a form of treatment that utilizes your body’s natural defenses to fight allergies, cancer, and other illnesses. It’s a great option for both adults and children looking for relief from allergy symptoms.

The immunotherapy specialists at Enhanced Medical Centers use a simple finger prick test to detect over 120 allergens, including environmental, food, insect, and more. Based on your specific results, the health specialists customize a unique serum in the form of drops for you to take at home.

As you use these customized drops over time, you develop long-term immunity to the allergens tested positive in your results. Once you establish immunity to those allergens, your symptoms improve and you’ll experience relief.

How does immunotherapy help alleviate allergies?

Immunotherapy is favored by many people because it’s noninvasive, simple, and safe. You don’t have to deal with the discomfort of needles or the burden of taking daily pills. Immunotherapy naturally boosts the strength of the body’s immune system to fight allergies.

If you suffer from seasonal or year-round allergies, the experts at Enhanced Medical Centers can help. Call today or make an appointment online to experience relief from your allergy symptoms.
