Allergies are widespread among the population, however many people are unaware of the impact that allergies can have on their overall well being. People frequently have the misconception that they "outgrew" their allergies. It's not unusual for the allergic person to have had their first line defenses overwhelmed and no longer have those type symptoms (sneezing, congestion, itchy eyes, etc) associated with their allergies. Their allergic problems are now affecting them at a much deeper level, resulting in asthma, tiredness, depression, trouble concentrating, mood changes, hyperactivity in children, joint pain, and a host of other difficulties.
We work hard to reduce modifiable factors like diet and environmental issues to reduce the load on the immune system. Making these changes allows the best chance to have a favorable outcome with allergy treatment.
