Allergies & Home Immune Therapy

By Dr. Rosa Kincaid, M.D.

Allergy season is upon us again. The winds of fall have been known to blow your nose to the hospital. So while you may be used to clearing your throat, sneezing, and refusing some of those sedating antihistamines, there are now other options available. The newer effective and convenient therapy involves Home Immune Therapy.

OK, so you’re not wheezing, coughing or blowing your nose but; you have nausea, bloating and diarrhea with the cause being totally unknown. It’s really a mystery as, it began as an adult and your gastroenterologist states that you don’t have Crohn’s disease or Colitis. In fact, your GI examination is normal. These symptoms can also be due to allergies.

The same type of skin (mucosa) that is in your nose and lung is in your gastrointestinal tract. Your mucosa reacts the same when exposed to specific allergens. Release of the histamine cells in the gut can cause swelling, pain, indigestion, diarrhea and similar unpleasant symptoms.

Allergies can cause symptoms to all of our organ systems. Other than respiratory (asthma) and gastrointestinal, it can also cause dermatitis (eczema), headaches, visual changes and total circulatory failure (shock). With the increased exposure to toxins and chemicals in our environment, allergies are on the rise.

There is also well-documented evidence that chronic stress weakens the immune system and makes our bodies less able to adapt to our environment (increases allergies). We are all being stressed on at least some level. So, if you haven’t finished that term paper or you get a stomachache when you hear your boss’ name, maybe you want to see if it is caused or exacerbated by allergies.

At Kincaid Medical, we will test you. When we find out what the allergy is, we will offer you a treatment that is safe and self-administered. You will no longer fall asleep at your desk after treating your mold, dust or cat allergy. You will no longer have burning eyes, runny nose or bloating after you complete your treatment. The testing and treatment is totally covered by your insurance.

If your symptoms are being caused by your boss and not from an allergy, let’s talk.
