The idea of moving to Scottsdale or other Arizona cities to escape allergies is an outmoded one. As an increasing number of people have built homes and businesses in the area, they have filled the landscape with non-native plants that have caused the state’s pollen counts to skyrocket. But a solution awaits at the Family Allergy Clinic.
If you’re tired of medications that never seem to fix your Scottsdale allergy troubles, the Family Allergy Clinic offers immunotherapy—the only treatment that can alter the underlying allergic disease instead of just the symptoms.
Immunotherapy can be administered through allergy shots or, more conveniently, through sublingual (under-the-tongue) allergy drops that can be taken in the comfort of home. Immunotherapy desensitizes your body to allergens in the environment so you stop reacting to them in ways that compromise your health.
Allergist Stuart H. Agren, M.D. started the Family Allergy Clinic in 1985 to help residents of Scottsdale and surrounding areas overcome hay fever, hives and eczema, asthma, allergic fatigue and headaches, ear and sinus infections and more. Since then, Dr. Agren has helped more than 15,000 patients overcome their pollen and food allergies with easy, at-home administration of oral allergy drops.
The program works great for kids’ allergies because it is simpler and safer than allergy shots. It can also help with food allergies to wheat, eggs, soy, rice, dairy and various fruits and vegetables.
