Many adults and children that are at least 16 years of age or older can be safely tested at OmniLife Wellness. As a top-rated provider, we focus on ensuring we figure out the allergens that are causing your symptoms, we start by ruling out any patients who may have contraindicated medical conditions. Otherwise, anyone dealing with allergies can be tested.
The test on average will take around 30 minutes total to administer, with another 15 minutes after to register the results from the test itself. The positive of doing it this way is you are able to find out what you are allergic to faster, and learn about the possible treatment options available for the cause of your allergies.
During an allergy test with OmniLife Wellness, we will focus on testing for all 54 of the most regionally relevant allergens that are most prevalent within the area you live in. These allergens include:
• Pet dander
• Dust mites
Often, we will not test our patients for allergens like stinging insects or venom-related allergies. The main reason why we do not test for allergens linked to stinging insects and venom is quite simple, the allergy test results are not very reliable for these specific allergens.
Allergy shots and allergy drops are similar to those alternative forms of allergen immunotherapy, they are designed to gradually increase your body’s tolerance to environmental allergens to which you have had an allergic sensitivity for some time through subcutaneous injection or sublingual shots.
Each immunotherapy treatment plan is customized based on the results of the allergy test you completed, as well as any specific allergen triggers. Immunotherapy treatment works to stimulate a transformation within your body’s immune cells, it switches the body from being a promoter of allergic reaction to cells that counter the allergic inflammatory process and leads to a noticeable decrease in the formation of the allergen-specific IgE antibodies. These specific IgE antibodies are the key players that are causing allergic reactions. If you are looking for long-term benefits, it is highly recommended that you take the course of an allergen immunotherapy treatment that lasts around 3 to 5 years.
Each individual that begins immunotherapy with OmniLife Wellness will see varying results; however, most of our patients have noticed a difference in their allergy symptoms within 6 to 12 months after beginning their immunotherapy treatment journey with personalized programs. Many of our patients have noticed fewer allergy symptoms occurring, and even other permanent benefits including a decreased risk of developing allergic asthma and other new allergies.
As stated previously, each individual will see differing results on how quickly their body is able to work with the immunotherapy treatment. The immunotherapy treatment provided was created to administer small, but increasing doses of the allergen over a period of time. Within the first 6 months of the subcutaneous treatment, you will be safely exposing the body to increasing concentrations of allergens. This is so we do not overload the body and overwhelm it.
During the first 6 months, your body’s histamine production will begin to decrease, which will provide you with allergy relief. Before you can truly experience a significant decrease in your allergy symptoms, you will need to continue on the immunotherapy treatment for 6 to 12 months, as this is on average how long it takes for the immunotherapy treatment to start allowing the T cells to transform, and for the IgE levels to begin to decrease.
