Treatment for Food Allergies
We are excited to announce that we are now in our 4th year of our innovative food allergy treatment program! We are one of few practices in the country that offers a breakthrough treatment program for people with food allergies. This treatment provides a long-term solution for milk, egg, peanut, soy, tree nut, corn, and wheat allergic patients. It usually takes around 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. Treatment is individualized.

Doses are generally increased weekly, but there are also some individualized changes that may occur.
Dosages should be given daily in the mornings, usually 22-26 hours apart. Some patients require different schedules based off of their needs, though.

Why Food Allergy Treatment Is Important
Allergic reactions to food are not just a source of discomfort and hassle; they can be life-threatening. This is the biggest reason to seek a cure.
