What is immunotherapy? I'm Dr. Manan Shah with Wyndly Health. Today, I'm going to be talking about what immunotherapy is. Allergy medications like Claritin or Zyrtec will work for a few hours, but as soon as they're out of your system, your allergy symptoms come back. Immunotherapy is the only scientifically proven method of changing your immune system for longterm allergy relief.

The way we do this is we get you allergy tested. And once your physician identifies your specific allergy triggers, we give you small doses of exactly what you're allergic to over a prolonged period of time. Over time, what happens is your body actually becomes desensitized. So, even when you stop taking the immunotherapy, you don't have symptoms.

If you'd like to learn more, we'd love to work with you. It really helps. Thanks.
