What is immunotherapy?

Allergies develop when your immune system overreacts to a substance that’s normally harmless. When you’re exposed to that substance in the future, your body releases chemicals that trigger inflammation and cause allergy symptoms.

Immunotherapy, or biological therapy, treats allergies by decreasing the inflammatory process of the immune system. Immunotherapies are designed to decrease the inflammatory response.

This helps make your immune system less sensitive to your specific allergens. As your immune system stops overreacting, your symptoms significantly improve.

How does immunotherapy work?

The unique approach to immunotherapy at Allergy & Environmental Treatment Center, LLC is to target allergies by way of allergen-specific immunotherapy.  

Allergy-specific immunotherapy

(ASIT) has become the gold standard for allergic diseases for many allergens. You may curiously await the new developments, which will further enhance our understanding of allergy mechanisms and improve ASIT for the next generations of patients and physicians. 

This form of therapy typically involves the subcutaneous administration of the patient's relevant allergens that is effective in mitigating miserable allergy symptoms.
