Allergy Relief

Dr. Robert Pearson treats chronic allergy sufferers with Immunotherapy, which is a preventive treatment for allergic reactions to substances such as grass pollens, house dust mites and mold.

Immunotherapy is an effective therapy program that activates the body’s immune system to help build the patient’s immunity to their environmental allergies. Immunotherapy typically offers long-term benefit for people’s symptoms from:

  • Pollen
  • Dust mites
  • Mold spores
  • Pet dander
  • Food
  • Insect stings
  • Medicines

IMG_7739-1How do you get allergies? Scientists think both genes and the environment have something to do with it. Normally, your immune system fights germs. It is your body’s defense system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to a false alarm.

Allergies can cause a runny nose, sneezing, itching, rashes, swelling or asthma. Symptoms vary. Although allergies can make you feel bad, they usually won’t kill you. However, a severe reaction called anaphylaxis is life-threatening.
