Allergy Drop Safety

The La Crosse Method Protocol has helped more than 275,000 allergy sufferers since 1970 without a single life-threatening reaction reported. No other published sublingual immunotherapy method can make this claim. The La Crosse Method’s safety record is impressive in view of how many allergies and allergic conditions it helps.

The La Crosse Method is the only U.S. published sublingual immunotherapy protocol that has been safely used for decades with young children and even infants. The younger your child’s allergies are treated, the more likely there is a chance to impact the developing immune system and stop the progression of allergies. Early treatment is more likely to prevent allergic diseases such as:

The La Crosse Method is the only published allergy protocol with decades of U.S. clinical use that is safe for people with severe allergies or uncontrolled asthma, women who are pregnant, and patients taking beta blockers. Even the most allergic people can be safely and successfully treated using the La Crosse Method.

Allergy drops have been used around the world for more than 100 years, and numerous studies validate both its safety and effectiveness. The World Health Organization has endorsed sublingual immunotherapy as a viable alternative to allergy shot therapy. The Cochrane Collaboration, the world’s most-trusted international organization dedicated to reviewing healthcare treatments, concluded that allergy drop immunotherapy significantly reduced allergy symptoms and medication use.

In 2013, the Agency for Healthcare Quality Research published a review that examined studies using both sublingual and subcutaneous immunotherapy (allergy shots). Reviewers found sufficient evidence to support the effectiveness and safety of subcutaneous and sublingual immunotherapy to treat allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and asthma.

La Crosse Method Protocol outcomes have also been validated through the Validation Institute, an independent team of population health scientists and bio-statisticians who provide objective review to validate healthcare performance.
