Immunotherapy is a form of allergy treatment that targets the very root of your problem, the allergy itself. During the buildup and maintenance phases, you will receive small doses of the allergen through an allergy shot given in your arm. This allows your body to slowly and consistently recognize the allergen as safe and not a threat.

People Who Can Benefit from Immunotherapy
People of all ages can start immunotherapy to take control of their health-related quality of life! The quality of your health affects every other aspect of your life – mental, emotional, spiritual, and more. If you experience the following, immunotherapy can benefit you drastically:
- You are allergic to insect venom.
- You cannot avoid the allergy trigger.
- Your allergy medicine fails to manage your symptoms.
- Your allergy medicine interacts negatively with other medication you take.
Benefits of Immunotherapy
The biggest benefit of immunotherapy is that your symptoms will no longer be present. The deeper benefit of allergy shots – the one that gets allergists excited – is the fact that these shots teach your immune system to accept the allergen instead of fight against it. By altering your immune system, immunotherapy changes your health in a positive way!
