Benefits of Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is widely used in Europe and gaining popularity in the US. Immunotherapy is the only treatment proven to alter the underlying allergic disease and not just alleviate symptoms.
Unlike allergy shots, SLIT is taken as drops under the tongue and can be done easily at home. It is safe for children and can be formulated to relieve environmental allergens as well as reactions to foods.
Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) Can Help
What to Expect
To get started, your doctor will recommend testing to identify the severity of allergic type reactions. Testing can be done with finger stick or blood test.
We will recommend a comprehensive naturopathic plan for allergy relief, which may include SLIT drops. You will take these drops daily under the tongue to introduce allergens to the immune system in a very dilute solution.
Over time, the allergen concentration in the SLIT drops is slowly increased, allowing for retraining of the immune system. Most patients report relief from allergy symptoms in as little as 2 weeks to 2 months.
