Airborne Allergies:

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) are antibodies produced by the immune system.

If you have an allergy, your immune system overreacts to an allergen by producing antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (IgE). These antibodies travel to cells that release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction. This reaction usually causes symptoms in the nose, lungs, throat, or on the skin.

Each type of IgE has specific “radar” for each type of allergen. That’s why some people are only allergic to cat dander (they only have the IgE antibodies specific to cat dander); while others have allergic reactions to multiple allergens because they have many more types of IgE antibodies.

The most important allergens include airborne allergens such as grass, tree or weed pollen, as well as moulds (or rather their spores), which are mainly released in summer and autumn.

A number of different allergens are responsible for allergic reactions.

Asthma

Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs. It causes repeated episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and nighttime or early morning coughing. Asthma can be controlled by taking medicine and avoiding the triggers that can cause an attack. You must also remove the triggers in your environment that can make your asthma worse.

Environmental & Mold Testing (Scratch Test)

aSkinTestDevice

It’s a SIMPLE procedure, we PROMISE!

Over-the-counter and prescription medications only mask your symptoms. Oftentimes, they have uncomfortable side effects that may lead to other health problems. Your doctor now has the ability, through Immunotherapy to create a natural medication to treat the allergies, not just cover them up. This works by desensitizing you to many of the airborne irritants that cause allergy issues. Through this form of therapy, you’ll no longer experience the symptoms that once plagued you.

Skin testing is the ‘gold standard’ for diagnosing your allergies. By using a PAINLESS prick technique, your doctor will be able to identify exactly what you are sensitive to within 15 minutes.

We custom prepare every single dosage of natural medication specifically for you. Our medications are made from natural substances and may permanently end your symptoms. Immunotherapy is the key to treating your allergies the natural way, without drugs.
