Allergies occur when your body’s immune system perceives normal items in the environment like pollen (from trees, grass and weeds) dust, mold, or pet dander as threats . Over the counter medications temporarily stops allergy symptoms, not the cause of the symptoms, which is why your misery returns season after season.
What is immunotherapy and how does immunotherapy work? Immunotherapy works by desensitizing your body to the normal harmless environmental particles called antigens. Your system is introduced to very small doses of antigens in a serum, either through injections or sub-lingual (under the tongue) drops and both are effective. As treatments progress the concentration of antigens in the serum is increased, so your immune system learns to ignore them, which will make you a happier person during the allergy season as you experience relief to the causes of your allergies.
