Rocky Mountain Food Allergy Treatment Program
We are excited to introduce our innovative food allergy treatment program! We are one of a few allergy practices in the country that offers a breakthrough treatment program for people with food allergies. This treatment provides a long-term solution for a variety of food allergies including milk, egg, peanut, wheat, soy, and tree nut allergic patients. It usually takes about six months, and at the end of the program, most patients are able to consume the foods that once threatened their health with no allergic reaction.
We currently have patients traveling or relocating from eight different states, including Hawaii, to receive this treatment from Dr. Jones. We have successfully treated an international patient from Australia as well.
Oral immunotherapy (OIT) is a measured, deliberate, and carefully calculated program in which patients with a food allergy are fed the allergenic food in very small incremental amounts over the course of several months. After each successful dose increase, patients are then required to dose independently at home until the next attempted dose increase in the office. After this step-wise process, the patients eventually will be able to tolerate the foods that once threatened their health with no reactions. They continue to consume that food on a daily basis to maintain the ability to tolerate it. The goal of OIT is “two-fold”: to help a patient tolerate the foods that they are allergic to in order to eliminate a risk of accidental exposure that could result in clinical symptoms. Second, OIT allows patients to freely ingest above and beyond the maintenance dose if they so desire. This can bring much freedom and hope to many patients and let them live a more normal life that reduces the challenges that come with food allergy.
You can follow our results on this website and also hear the testimonials of our many successful patients. We wish to bring hope and freedom to you and your family with this amazing program.
