Did you know?
> Allergies are the 5th leading chronic illness amongst adults in America and the 3rd leading chronic illness amongst children.
> Nationally, up to 50% of the population has allergies.
> Nearly 8% of the population has asthma with a growing number of children being diagnosed with the condition.
> One-third of the population has non-allergic rhinitis.
> Allergy shots, also known as allergen immunotherapy or allergy vaccines, are FDA approved and do not contain steroids . They are the only treatment for allergy that treats the underlying cause of allergy rather than just controls the symptoms.
> Allergy shots:
~ Reduce the likelihood of developing new allergies even after they are discontinued.
~ Reduce the likelihood of children with allergic rhinitis (nasal allergy) developing asthma.
~ When successful, produce beneficial effects that can last for many years even after they are discontinued.
