A Natural Alternative to Allergy Shots

What is Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT)?

Sublingual Immunotherapy, or SLIT, is an evidence-based, injection-free method to address the underlying causes of seasonal and environmental allergies. SLIT therapy desensitizes the immune system to pollens, dander, molds, and other allergens. It has been found to be effective in hay fever, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, eczema, and allergic asthma. It has been found to prevent the development of allergic asthma in children with eczema and allergic rhinitis.

An initial scratch test is done to determine which allergens you are reactive to. We currently test for allergies to cats, dogs, dust mites, tree pollens, grasses, weeds, mold.

Once your allergies have been determined, we prescribe custom allergy drops that you will take daily in the comfort of your own home. These are covered by most extended health drug plans.

SLIT can be used during allergy season or done preventatively, before the season starts and is safe for children over age 3 years.
