Precision Allergy Testing
Customized Treatment – Excellent Results
If you currently use over-the-counter and prescription allergy relief aids, you know that they can have uncomfortable side effects. You also know that they don’t address the underlying cause of your symptoms. That’s why you should talk to your doctor about precision allergy testing and the new customized medications that could help you say goodbye to your allergies forever.
Your physician knows that every patient is different. Each responds differently to different allergens. That’s why we custom-formulate every single dosage of our allergy medication specifically for the individual patient.
Unlike over-the-counter and prescription medications that ease your symptoms but may have significant side effects, we identify, and then treat the cause of your disease with custom medications.
A smart solution for allergy sufferers.
Mass produced over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription allergy medication can ease your symptoms. But they often have significant side effects.
The good news: There are now custom medications available that have been specifically designed to resolve your allergy itself.
Our medications are unique custom-formulated antigen therapies that can help desensitize you to many of the pollens, molds and other triggers that cause your symptoms and make you uncomfortable. This desensitization therapy can allow you to be around those allergens without the common allergic reactions and symptoms. With minimal continued maintenance usage, these medications may last you a lifetime.
A skin test pinpoints your specific allergies.
Skin testing is the oldest and most reliable form of allergy testing. Used for over 100 years, skin testing continues to be the “gold standard” for diagnosing allergic disease.
This testing is not painful. A tiny comb gently scratches or abrades the skin surface. After the test is performed, it takes only about 15 minutes to develop. A positive test will appear as a raised, red itchy bump on the skin, like a mosquito bite.
The skin test reveals allergic disease in miniature. For example. If you think you are allergic to cats the test will show it. The test helps people see (and feel) a positive allergy to cat dander. This educational experience is much more dramatic for the patient than a printed blood test report revealing a positive cat allergy test.
Your physician wants the best for you and your health.
Your doctor cares about you and your health. That’s why he or she is offering you custom allergy solutions. Your doctor wants the best possible care and treatment for you and, more importantly, to reduce or eliminate your symptoms and discomfort. So you can enjoy a more comfortable, better quality of life.
