We treat allergy by using the old adage: “Fight fire with fire.” By giving a dose, either sublingually (under the tongue) or by injection, of the very substances to which a person reacts when he inhales these substances, we can build up a good blocking antibody, IgG, which blocks the allergy reaction. The allergy treatment is an immunization, which desensitizes the individual to the allergens to which he is reacting.
Typically, you should receive your first vial of drops 6-8 weeks after the initial blood sample was collected.
The drops are most effective when taken three times per day instead of all at one time. Overall, the more they are split, the better they work. If 3 drops are done together, they will still help. However, the more they are split, the better they work long-term.
