Literally millions of Americans suffer from extreme allergies to food ranging from nuts to milk. By far the greatest method for treating these allergies is Food Desensitization. Our food desensitization programs can provide a long-term solution for patients with peanut, egg, milk, or other food allergies. At the end of this 3-6 month program patients should be able to consume these foods with no allergic reactions. This program introduces the allergic food to the patient in minor doses orally over a period of time. The time can range from 3 – 6 month based on the patient. By steadily increasing the dosage of the allergen food our patients build a tolerance as their immune system adjust accordingly.
The first visit of the desensitization process lasts from 2 to 4 hours. During this time the patient will receive multiple doses of very small amounts of diluted milk, diluted peanut flour, diluted egg powder, or other diluted protein, as this is an oral desensitization. There are no available shots for food allergies. The patient will return weekly for dose increases followed by a period of observation. Between each visit the patient will take two doses of the desensitizing food each day at home. Once maintenance dose is reached the food must be eaten daily to maintain tolerance.
Whether you are looking to build a tolerance in case of accidental consumption or if you wish to include your allergic foods to your regular diet food
