You have likely heard about immunotherapy in the context of cancer treatment. However, immunotherapy can also help with other conditions, particularly allergies. This is one way that we can help you if you are allergic to some substances, in addition to the allergy testing that we provide.
Immunotherapy can prove beneficial to you, especially if you have tried other solutions and they have not worked out. Visit us at West Knoxville Medical & Chiropractic in Knoxville, TN, in order to learn more about this form of treatment. Our chiropractor would be happy to discuss it with you and see if immunotherapy is right for you.
What Is Immunotherapy for Allergies?
As previously stated, you have probably heard about immunotherapy when it comes to cancer treatment. Immunotherapy as a treatment for allergic reactions is certainly different than immunotherapy for cancer. The basic principle of the type of immunotherapy we provide is that we give you gradually larger doses of the substance that you are allergic to in order to treat you.
Gradual exposure to the allergen makes your immune system less sensitive to it. As a result, your allergic symptoms will be less serious when you come into contact with the allergen in the future. Additionally, our immunotherapy treatment may help decrease inflammation commonly associated with asthma. Of course, we have to perform allergy testing to see what you are allergic to in the first place.
Why Choose Immunotherapy?
If you are someone with allergies, you are aware that there are many forms of treatment you can choose. However, medication and other traditional forms of allergy treatment do not always work. As a result of this, you might want to explore an alternative form of treatment and our immunotherapy treatment may be a good alternative.
Additionally, since we provide natural treatment for our patients, you might not have to worry about many side effects that you might experience if you take allergy medication. You should also know that immunotherapy can help reduce your sensitivity to specific allergens, whereas medication may be only a temporary solution. Medication only treats your symptoms and may not provide you with lasting relief from them
