Oral Immunotherapy

Oral Immunotherapy for food allergies is a medical treatment, guided by a board-certified allergist, which re-trains the immune system to become desensitized to food allergens through regular ingestion of food proteins at increasing doses.

Reduce the risk of anaphylaxis after exposure to:

  • Peanut & Tree Nut
  • Milk and Eggs
  • Soy or Sesame
  • Other Foods



First Qualifying Visit (~2 Hours)

Consultation with one of our board-certified allergists to discuss your entire journey.


Day 1 Treatment (~6-8 hours)

On day 1, the patient takes protein dilution every 30 minutes for 8 doses. Our allergist and team will supervise. After this, you'll take your medicine at home.


Weekly Updosing (~23-29 weeks)

Once a week, the patient comes to our clinic to get an increased dose of protein dilution. Then, they are sent home with a new, stronger dose of the prescribed protein.


Routine Maintenance

Patients are given the quantity of their specified food to add to their diet indefinitely at home to maintain their desensitized state.


Early Introduction to Peanuts

The first step in our early introduction program is a peanut allergy test. As a parent, you may already be aware of the dangers of food allergies and how they might affect your child’s life. You can put your fears to rest on the first day of therapy by learning whether or not your child has a peanut allergy.



Peanut allergy testing is part of our early introduction program. As a parent, you may know how food allergies might affect your child. You’ll know if your child has a peanut allergy on the first day of treatment.



Once we know that your child hasn’t developed a peanut allergy, we’ll assess their risk. We’ll take measures to lower the risk so your child can live allergy-free.



If your child has developed a food allergy, we will assist you in protecting them from a reaction. We can start Oral Immunotherapy when they are old enough.
