Allergies currently affect more than 40-60 million Americans, or 20 percent of the population, and their prevalence is increasing. Unfortunately, allergies are one chronic condition that knows no boundaries. Although there is a genetic connection to a large number of cases, the onset of allergies can occur at any point in one’s life, costing sufferers in both quality of life and the cost of care.
According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, the cost of treating allergic rhinitis almost doubled in a five-year period from $6.1 billion to $11.2 billion. More than half of that amount was spent on prescription medications. Immunotherapy, whether it be allergy shots or allergy drops, is the only form of treatment that helps address the root cause of allergy and can actually change the allergic disease's progression.
From ever-increasing food allergies to common environmental allergies, our treatment approach using allergy drops administered under the tongue following the La Crosse Method™ Protocol has shown to be effective for a wide variety of allergies and associated conditions. We encourage you to review our list of treated conditions to the right to learn more about how sublingual immunotherapy may be helpful for you and your family.
