Allergies don’t discriminate: Anyone can be born with them, just as anyone may develop them later in life. Allergies affect more than 50 million Americans, and are currently ranked as the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States. If you’re allergic to dust mites, animal dander, pollen, ragweed, or other airborne allergens, sublingual immunotherapy may help reduce the severity of your allergy over time. At LifeSpan Center for Integrative Medicine in Minnetonka, Minnesota, Dr. Mark Rawson offers a state-of-the-art allergy treatment therapy to patients from communities across the greater Minneapolis area.

Sublingual Immunotherapy

For allergy sufferers, who continue to be miserable despite using the variety pharmaceuticals available to control symptoms, the next option has generally been weekly allergy shots in the doctor’s office.  That painful and time-consuming process can go on for years before relief is achieved. 

There is an alternative to shots that is increasing in popularity…Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT). Like allergy shots, increasing concentrations of the offending allergen are given over time. Unlike shots, SLIT therapy are drops placed under the tongue…at home. No need for weekly clinic visits, and no pain. 

Lifespan Center for Integrative Medicine, follows the La Crosse Method Protocol for allergy testing, serum compounding and dosing guidance. Developed over many years and used with thousands of patients, the La Crosse Method is safe and effective.
