Allergy testing will be offered in the clinic. Once the allergies are identified, sublingual allergy drops will be advised. Once we review your results, we will order a custom prescription using the La Crosse Method Protocol. You will purchase the prescription directly from the pharmacy.

Allergy drop immunotherapy, also known as sublingual immunotherapy, is a treatment that like allergy shots, treats the root cause of allergies instead of temporarily relieving symptoms.
Like allergy shots, allergy drops deliver a slowly increasing dose of antigen (something that helps your body fight disease) that, over time, builds the body’s tolerance to the substances that cause allergic symptoms. Instead of delivery through an injection, allergy drops are placed under the tongue, an area rich in specialized dendritic (immune) cells.
Research shows these cells are a friendlier and more effective route for building long-term tolerance, making it ideal for people who can not tolerate or don’t respond to allergy shots. Treatment for most patients lasts between three to five years, depending upon severity of allergies (how bad they are) and patient compliance (following directions).
