Immunotherapy

The key to stopping allergies

If you suffer from persistent allergies and have tried every over-the-counter medication on the market, immunotherapy might just be the solution that you’re looking for. The process is simple, small doses of the allergen build up natural immunity, which will gradually be increased until partial or full immunity is established. This causes the immune system to become less sensitive to the allergen by producing antibodies.
Immunotherapy is effective at reducing symptoms of such conditions as rhinitis and asthma.

Immunotherapy helps cancer treatments

If you are recovering from cancer, immunotherapy can help boost your immune system and help the chemotherapy be more effective. You may experience fewer side effects than other treatments as well and cancer may be less likely to return.
It’s important to know that immunotherapy is not a silver bullet that will solve all issues related to cancer recovery, but it can be a vital part of recovery.

Are there any side effects to immunotherapy?

There is the possibility of side effects. As the therapy triggers an immune response you could feel as if you are sick even when you are not. You may have flu-like symptoms, chills, and fatigue. You might also experience swelling, weight gain, and diarrhea.
