Overcoming Allergies Through Allergy Therapy

Do you or a loved one suffer from allergies, whether from pollen or food? If so, Medinet Family Care Clinic can help you overcome those allergic reactions through allergy therapy.

Our trained and experienced Houston physicians will evaluate your condition by checking into your health history before conducting an allergy test. From there, we will conduct the allergy test to check the symptoms and their severity. There are numerous methods to addressing allergens, but first we must identify precisely what your allergens are. Pinpointing the allergens is the first step to combating or treating allergies.

METHODS TO PROVIDING ALLERGY THERAPY

Allergy therapy can be conducted various ways. One of the most popular methods is to first pinpoint the specific allergy and then to avoid it altogether. For example, if you are allergic to shellfish, then be certain to avoid bringing that type of food into your home. Also, inform friends and family that you are allergic to such items, especially before meeting for a dinner or event. It may also be prudent to avoid seafood restaurants, or to at least advise the waiter or staff that you are allergic to shellfish.

Another method is through medicine. Our physicians have numerous ways to address allergens through medicinal use. These methods have been tried and tested. Of course, before every receiving any type of medicine, our physician will ensure that you are not allergic to the medicine itself or that your body is incapable of handling such pharmaceuticals.

Immunotherapy is another pathway to treating and combating allergies. This method uses allergens themselves, either through a shot or by placing the allergen under the tongue. The objective to this allergy therapy is to help the body build up an immunity to the allergen so that it is no longer a problem.
