Allergies represent the body’s inability to deal with a typically benign substance. Including conditions like allergic rhinitis and hay fever, allergies are affecting a growing number of people each year. And more and more of them are turning to over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs to provide some relief.

These medications are often effective at relieving allergy symptoms, they do nothing to address the cause of the problem. We can provide a clear explanation for why individuals suffer with allergies and can create a treatment plan to address the underlying causes.
