Allergy Testing

Reduce Symptoms of Environmental Allergens Without Injections!

We are increasingly aware of the potentially life-threatening dangers of acute allergens such as peanuts, tree nuts, and bee strings. Yet we may not be aware of the fact that we are constantly bombarded by allergens and toxins in the food we eat and the air we breathe that may be triggering less acute but still hazardous allergic reactions. And unfortunately, the reactions may be undermining our health, our energy levels, and even our appearance.

Dr. Stephen A. Rath, lead physician at Fusion Medical Spa in Ruidoso, New Mexico has developed a powerful, highly-customized program for detecting, diagnosing, and treating allergies that may be damaging your health and wellness in the short- and long-term. Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) harnesses the power of your own body’s immune system to boost your tolerance of allergens in the environment, thereby reducing your symptoms and improving your health and well-being.

Benefits of sublingual immunotherapy

  • SLIT tablets are FDA-approved for the treatment of allergies caused by ragweed and grass pollen
  • May also be effective in the treatment of other environmental allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, tree pollens
  • Provides relief from red, itchy eyes and other common hay fever symptoms
  • May provide relief for mild dermatitis (eczema) in children
  • Administered under the tongue; does not require injections!

Your Sublingual Immunotherapy Program

If you are concerned that you suffer from environmental allergies and are tired of the daily routine of over-the-counter allergy medications that make you tired and drowsy, you may be a candidate for a customized, physician-supervised sublingual immunotherapy program at Fusion Med Spa. The first step is determining the exact nature of your specific allergy with a blood test. Once the exact nature of your allergy is determined, Dr. Rath will develop a customized treatment plan utilizing tablets or drops. The tablet or drop is placed under the tongue for one to two minutes, then swallowed. By following this regimen on a regular basis as directed by Dr. Rath—from daily to three times per week—you will slowly build up your body’s tolerance to the allergen. Eventually, the goal is to boost your body’s own ability to fight the effects of the allergen, thereby reducing your symptoms and improving your health.
