More than 50 million people in the United States have allergies.The first step in any effective allergy treatment plan is to see an allergist. An allergist is someone who specializes in treating allergies and asthma, for testing and diagnosis.
Most people have never see an allergist because of many misconceptions about the procedure. But allergy tests have been greatly improved over the years. They are now more convenient, accurate and relatively painless. The results of allergy testing can identify the specific substances that trigger allergic reactions for each client. This can than determine the best and most effective treatment.

Immunotherapy reduces the need for medication and relieves additional stress on the liver.
Allergen Specific Immunotherapy is a form of immunotherapy for allergic disorders in which the patient is vaccinated with increasingly larger doses of an allergen (substances to which they are allergic) with the aim of inducing immunologic tolerance.
