The first opton is Low Dose Allergen Therapy (LDA). It is a method of immunotherapy that utilizes a small dose of an enzyme called beta glucuronidase. This enzyme, in turn, activates miniscule doses of various allergens. This combination, when injected intradermally (just under the skin) stimulates the production of T-suppressor cells. These cells "switch off" T-helper cells that are the root of an over active immune system. Because these T-cells live for long periods of time in the bloodstream, LDA only needs to be administered every 2 months initially, and then less often as time passes.
Typically, one to three tiny intradermal injections are given on the inner aspect of the forearm. Initially, there can be mild itching at the site of injection along with slight swelling. This passes quickly.
LDA has been found to assist patients with allergy, sensitivity, and intolerance to foods, air-borne allergens, and chemicals. It is thought to help allergic rhinitis, seasonal allergies, chronic sinusitis, sinus headaches, chronic ear infections, food allergies, hives, eczema, migraines, headaches, multiple chemical sensitivity, brain fog, gastrointestinal issues, autoimmune conditions, and many more.
Dr. Freeman’s own son was cured of his bleeding eczema at 11 months of age with LDA.
Please note that LDA is not FDA approved.
The second option used to support patients with allergies is oral immunotherapy drops. These drops are made specfically for the patient's sensitivities and are taken under the tongue. They are conveniently given at home on a daily basis. This is the perfect option for those who are afraid of needles.
