Allergies & Immunotherapy
Allergies are the result of an over-reactive immune system. When allergies occur, the immune system mistakenly identifies an allergen (pollen, pet dander, mold, and dust mites) as an “invader.” In response, the body mounts an inappropriate immune response similar to one that it would launch against something much more harmful, such as the cold virus.
To rid itself of the “invader,” the immune response triggers a response that results in you experiencing symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, and itchy, watery eyes.
New Age Medical Center has a new service called the SEASONAL ALLERGY TEST, where you will be evaluated via skin testing with the 50 most common allergens in your area, including trees, mold, weeds, grass and animals. At the same time you can access immunotherapy treatment based on the skin testing results to reduce or eliminate these allergies, in order to improve your quality of life in specific seasons. This way you can eliminate over the counter medications and their multiple side effects.
