Arizona Allergies

The good old days when people came to Arizona to escape allergies are over.  Newcomers to the state have covered the landscape with imported trees and grasses.  They may look nice, but they have driven up the pollen count and brought many Arizona cities (including Phoenix) into the top rankings for “most allergic cities.”

But there’s an easy solution for Arizonans at the Family Allergy Clinic where allergy sufferers can get treatment with just a few drops of sublingual (under-the-tongue) allergy serum a day.  The drops are a form of immunotherapy— the only treatment shown to change the underlying allergic disease instead of just its symptoms.

Some allergy doctors offer immunotherapy in the form of allergy shots, but it’s safer and more convenient when delivered through oral allergy drops.   The drops absorb into the bloodstream through specialized cells in the mouth, gradually desensitizing the body to allergens in the environment.  Unlike pills, inhalers and nasal sprays, allergy drops offer a lasting solution—not just a temporary fix for symptoms.

Allergy doctor Stuart H. Agren, M.D. opened the Family Allergy Clinic in 1985 and has since helped rid more than 15,000 patients of symptoms including hay fever, ear infections, sinus infections, hives and eczema, asthma, allergic fatigue and headaches.

The drops can also help  patients with food allergies including wheat, eggs, soy, rice, dairy and various fruits and vegetables.
