Seasonal Allergies

Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is an alternative way to treat allergies without injections. At Hunt Naturopathic Clinic Inc., Dr. Hunt gives a patient small doses of an allergen under the tongue to boost tolerance to the substance and reduce symptoms.

Dr. Hunt must first use allergy testing to confirm the patient’s sensitivities. Once this is determined, an allergen extract is prepared in drop form.  The patient is directed to keep it under the tongue for one to two minutes and then swallow it. The process is repeated from three days a week to as often as daily.
