For decades allergists have toiled with the problem of food allergy.
Allergists have been desensitizing patients with allergy to inhalants such as dust and pollens for many years—with allergy shots.
In the past, we could diagnose food allergy. But beyond avoidance and epinephrine, in the case of emergencies, we had nothing to offer patients.
Now, we have brought our experience with inhalant desensitization, to foods. Oral immunotherapy or, OIT, uses the same concept to achieve the goal of desensitizing
The therapy is safe and over 94 percent of patients can achieve the ability to freely eat those allergenic foods. Even people who have had an anaphylactic event in the past can now eat those foods without fear.

Oral Immunotherapy (OIT):
Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) is specifically designed for food allergies. We can treat most common food allergy like tree nuts, peanuts and egg. It’s like a structured training program for your digestive system. You begin by consuming small amounts of the allergenic food, and gradually, under the careful supervision of a medical professional, you increase the amount over time.
This process helps your body build tolerance to the allergen (such as peanuts). OIT is not a quick solution; it’s a long-term commitment that requires close monitoring by a healthcare professional because. However, the ultimate goal is to enable you to eat foods without experiencing allergic reactions by essentially teaching your body to handle substances that used to trigger adverse responses. If you have food allergy, there is a way to be able to eat trigger foods again!
