Get Allergy Relief from LDA Allergy Treatment

Low-Dose Allergy (LDA) treatment is an incredible treatment available to anyone who suffers from allergies. It’s different from antihistamines and allergy shots in the way it works with the immune system to reduce allergic reactions. 

 

You probably don’t know much about how LDA allergy treatments work. That’s OK! This treatment, which was developed in the late 1950s, has worked for many people over the years. It’s safe and offers a better alternative to other approaches to allergy maintenance. Many patients discover that their allergic reactions are hardly noticeable after finishing a full round of LDA allergy treatment.

 

Contact Five Journeys to set up an LDA allergy treatment appointment.

 

How Does LDA Allergy Treatment Work?

LDA treatment is immunotherapy at its core. This means that the injection aims to reduce the body’s immune response to specific allergens. Unlike antihistamine tablets or other forms of allergy shots, LDA treatment reduces the body’s reaction to allergens.

 

Each LDA injection exposes the body to hundreds of different allergens alongside specific enzymes. These enzymes then attract white blood cells and encourage the body to reduce its immune response. In the end, your body will react less intensely even when exposed to different pollens, danders, molds, and more.

 

LDA injections are administered about every 2 months. It typically takes 16-18 injections before reaching immunity; however, this varies from patient to patient depending on allergy severity. 

 

The data is overwhelmingly positive when it comes to LDA treatments. Some studies have shown an 80% efficacy rate. This approach to allergies is also more cost-effective than other shots or medications.

 

Imagine being able to live life allergy-free in a matter of months!

 

What Kind of Allergies does LDA Address?

LDA allergy treatment is effective in treating all kinds of allergies. Each injection introduces hundreds of allergens to the body, which can promote wide-ranging tolerances.

 

Do you suffer from any of the following?

  • Seasonal allergies
  • Pet allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Environmental toxins like dust and mold

 

If you answered yes to any of the allergens above, then you could benefit from LDA allergy treatment. Or, if you have rarer allergies, call Five Journeys to talk with one of our allergy specialists. We can let you know if LDA treatment can help you.

 

Chances are, it can!

 

A Summary of Different Allergy Treatments

So, which allergy treatment is right for you? As with any medical intervention, it’s important to talk to your doctor or health practitioner before beginning any regimen. However, it’s also key to understand the different treatments available to you. That way you can have an informed conversation with your practitioner.

 

Here are the main types of allergy treatments:

  • Anti-histamines: Dampen the body’s allergic response by limiting histamine release
  • Allergy shots: Create a muted allergen response through exposure
  • LDA Treatment: Shuts off (reduces) the body’s allergic reaction using enzymes

 

Allergies can be debilitating for some people. When certain pollen fills the air, people with high allergies might be stuck at home for weeks with runny noses and sinus problems. Or people who live with pets might need to find allergy relief in order to spend more time with the creatures they love.

 

Don’t let allergens hold you back from living your most vibrant life.

 

Enter: Five Journeys Functional Medicine

Most traditional doctors treat the external, surface-level symptoms. This approach may provide brief reprise from uncomfortable symptoms, but the deeper cause still remains untreated and could develop into something worse. 

 

This approach is a lot like trying to weed your flower bed. If you only yank up weeds from the shoots poking above the soil, the weed will keep coming back.

 

Five Journeys is a functional medicine practice. This means we examine your body as a whole–not a being with separate systems packed together. We take physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health into account when we test and treat illness and disease–including allergies. We listen to what your body is telling you and treat the source of your symptoms, eliminating them for good.
