Sublingual (under the tongue) immunotherapy has been used safely in the U.S. for the past few decades and in Europe for over sixty years and is endorsed by the World Allergy Organization.
Our sublingual immunotherapy is called allergiDrops.™ allergiDrops are very different from any other allergy medication you may have taken before. Unlike chemical medications (antihistamines, nasal sprays and steroid shots), allergiDrops are designed to treat the cause of your allergies.
allergiDrops are compounded in a liquid form to be applied daily under the tongue (sublingually) vs. a subcutaneous injection. allergiDrops contain a proprietary formula of the top 60+ allergens in North America, which is considerably more allergens than you would find in allergy shots. However, our low-dose schedule allows your immune system to steadily build a tolerance to more allergens, on a daily basis, in a much safer and faster way then weekly allergy shots. Furthermore, unlike allergy shots, allergiDrops are pain-free, administered conveniently from your home, and have a safety profile clinically proven to be far superior to allergy shots. In fact, there have been no recorded reactions to sublingual immunotherapy in the U.S. and Europe for the past sixty years.
With sublingual immunotherapy, you orally receive a form of vaccination against a broad spectrum of allergens. The vaccine prompts the body to make natural antibodies, which gradually increase immunity to the allergens causing the problems. It is based on the same vaccination science that most of immunology is based.
The process takes time and consistency to maximize its effectiveness. With every daily dose, you build the strength of your immune system and decrease the inflammation process your body creates when allergies strike.
