Treating Airbone Allergies in Waukesha
Do you suffer from seasonal allergies?
Are you prone to getting sinus infections?
Do you suffer from chronic fatigue?
During certain times of the year, do you find yourself having itchy eyes, blowing your nose, or sneezing?
You may be one of the 60 million Americans, or roughly 20% of the population, who suffer from allergies. However, less than 3% of allergic individuals are receiving immunotherapy - the only treatment that changes your underlying allergic disease instead of temporarily treating symptoms!
Treating Allergies with Sublingual Drop Therapy
At Serenity Health Care Center in Waukesha, our approach to treating airborne allergies is two-fold.
First, we obtain a detailed history that involves looking at the environment. Secondly we get a detailed history of both family and personal history.
You will complete an Allergy Questionnaire at your first appointment, providing information essential to diagnosing allergies properly.
Allergy testing is administered only after a diagnosis of an allergic disorder is made based upon the above information and a physical examination.
Injection immunotherapy is an effective treatment, yet many allergy sufferers are not willing or able to consider this treatment. Sublingual immunotherapy, or allergy drops, is an off-label use of the same antigens used in allergy shots. Serenity Health Care Center uses the allergy “drop” treatment using the La Crosse Method approach, which is a convenient, safe, effective, affordable and versatile solution for many allergy sufferers. Allergy Treatments can be individualized for those with seasonal and environmental allergies, or those with more complex allergies, such as mold and food allergies, or associated allergic conditions, like asthma.
There are many benefits to allergy drop treatment including:
- Reduced time spent at your doctor’s office
- Advantage of taking immunotherapy at home or on the go
- The ability to treat a broader array of allergic patients and conditions
- Reduced need for allergy medications.
