• 1 out of every 6 Americans has allergies; that’s about 50 million people. Of those,
roughly 7.8% suffer from hay fever.
• A recent CDC study concludes that food allergies have increased approximately 50%
between 1997 and 2011. The top three allergens are peanuts, milk and shellfish.
• Allergies occur because of an over sensitive immune system. It detects a foreign
substance called the allergen as a threat and it sounds the alarm.
• The immune response causes the typical symptoms of allergies; itchy eyes, coughing,
runny nose, sneezing, and scratchy throat. More serious reactions are asthma, rashes and
swelling. Anaphylaxis is swelling of the throat and is life threatening.
• Some common allergens are pollen, dust mites, mold, pet dander, food, insect bites,
cockroaches, medications and latex.
• Depending on the allergen, you may be able to avoid contact with it like pet dander; but
pollen is a little harder to avoid.
• Medications either over the counter or prescribed block the body’s response.
• Allergy shots (immunotherapy) give the patient minute amounts of the allergen in greater
concentration consistently each month for 3 to 5 years to desensitize the specific allergen.
• In Europe, allergy drops have been used for over 30 years with success and since it is
self-administered daily under the tongue, there is a greater compliance with patients.
