Allergies can cause a range of life-changing symptoms from skin breakouts and sinus congestion to brain fog, sleep issues, and trouble breathing. It can be both frightening and frustrating to recognize that a food, plant, or family pet is causing serious health issues. Even worse is when the potential allergens remain a mystery, and you’re left with a series of unpredictable allergy attacks. At The Center for Fully Functional Health in Carmel, IN, we are experts at identifying and treating allergies with safe, natural therapies, including Sublingual Immunotherapy. We will partner with you to uncover hidden food, environmental, or seasonal allergies and suggest a care plan that calms your immune system and restores your health and quality of life.
Long-Lasting Allergy Treatment Tailored To You
CFFH Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT) is an option for treating allergies once and for all as part of your journey to living Fully Functional. SLIT can be very effective for chronic allergies and a great alternative to injections. Millions of people struggle with sneezing, coughing, and watery eyes due to seasonal allergies, while some struggle all year round. For many, allergy symptoms can be debilitating.
SLIT is the use of specially formulated drops that desensitize your system to allergens. Testing will initially be required, and then your Physician will discuss the ideal drops and timing to address your unique needs. Drops are most commonly administered at home three times daily. This treatment can offer significant relief without the use of injections or antihistamine medications. SLIT is an easy, convenient way to treat allergies that has been used in other countries for many years.
Say Goodbye to Allergies Without Injections
SLIT has been used for decades to alleviate common allergy symptoms associated with grass, weeds, pollen, pet dander, and dust mites. In our office, we also see the benefits in people with other immune conditions, including food allergies and allergy-related skin issues such as mild eczema. SLIT can help alleviate common symptoms of allergies, including:
Live Free of Allergies on Your Way to Fully Functional
What if your allergy symptoms were just a distant memory? Stop masking symptoms and instead address the root cause. Living Fully Functional means enjoying an active life without allergies. SLIT might be a good option for you if previous testing, allergy shots, or elimination protocols proved ineffective. We will first perform an allergy test to confirm your sensitivities and specific allergies. Based on those results, we will formulate drops that are simply applied under your tongue, where they are absorbed. The good news is there are no injections, and SLIT is easy and effective!
To find out whether SLIT or other allergy therapies are right for you, the first step is to book an Allergy Relief Focus Appointment. This convenient package includes consultations and baseline labs where our Clinician can determine whether you require further allergy testing or are ready to begin Sublingual Immunotherapy, immune balancing supplements, or other Functional Medicine modalities such as Defend IV Therapy.
Progressive Treatment to End Your Allergy Suffering
Anyone looking for allergy treatment solutions that have a lasting impact can benefit from SLIT to potentially address the underlying reaction of your overactive immune system and build up your body’s tolerance to an allergen. If allergies are having a negative impact on your daily life, contact The Center for Fully Functional Health to get started with our suite of safe, innovative therapies and find long-term relief.
The beauty of SLIT is that there are no shots involved! SLIT has been shown to improve allergic reactions and symptoms, with long-lasting effects for some people. How well it works depends largely on your immune system. SLIT can be especially helpful for allergy sufferers who don’t tolerate or simply want to avoid injections.
For many of our patients, SLIT improves their energy, sleep & quality of life. Though SLIT is considered generally safe, because you are dealing with an allergen, there’s always the chance of triggering a reaction. While allergic reactions are extremely rare, it is important to remain vigilant. Any symptoms you experience will likely lessen over time.
Costs depend on many factors, including any underlying conditions and your body’s needs. Treatment duration with SLIT will depend on your individual degree of allergic response. We’re happy to discuss any concerns and answer all your questions at your appointment.
As with many Functional and Integrative Medicine treatments, Sublingual Immunotherapy is offered outside of the traditional insurance system. Rather than offering an invasive, challenging approach like injections administered during repeat visits to a medical office, we prefer the convenience and comfort of sublingual drops at home.
While insurance does not typically cover SLIT or some versions of specialized allergy testing, we believe it is the safest, most practical approach to lasting allergy relief. SLIT is also significantly less expensive than traditional allergy injections that require an insurance deductible before coverage applies.
