Cascade Natural Medicine is proud to offer our patients several options for allergy testing. We offer in-house skin scratch testing to help identify potential environmental and food allergens. Based on the results of this test, a custom sublingual immunotherapy formulation is created to help mitigate allergy symptoms.
Immunotherapy is a natural allergy remedy. It's a process that desensitizes your body to allergens by introducing them to your body, via serum, in small doses. As treatment progresses, the amount of these allergens (also known as antigens) in the serum increases so your immune system learns to tolerate and then ignore them, making you a much happier person during allergy season!
There are two types of immunotherapy: shots and sublingual (under the tongue) drops. Both are effective.
Allergy Drops have been popular throughout the world for over 60 years. In the comfort of your home, you simply place a few drops of serum (the same serum used in allergy shots) under your tongue every day. You only need to visit your healthcare provider every 12 weeks for a refill and a quick follow-up. By your first follow-up, you’ll likely notice a marked improvement. Within a few months you should realize a significant reduction in the need for allergy medications. And, in four years, if you are like most patients you will experience complete remission of your environmental allergies.
