Allergy Testing & Treatment in Coral Springs: Maplewood Wellness

Allergy Testing in Coral Springs Florida

Allergy shots, also known as allergen immunotherapy, are a form of long-term treatment of allergy symptoms.  Allergy shots look to decrease the sensitivity to allergens and can often lead to long lasting relief of allergy symptoms even after the treatments have concluded. Visit the American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology website for information about allergy testing and treatments.

Testing for allergies at Maplewood Wellness

Over 50 million people in the United States suffer from allergies. Finding out what each patient is allergic to is the first step to effective allergy treatment at Maplewood Wellness. Fortunately, allergy shots are more convenient and accurate than they have ever been before. When combined with a detailed medical history, allergy testing at our facility can pinpoint the specific things that trigger allergic reactions in our patients.

Allergy testing can be done as a skin test or a blood test and is usually administered under the guidance of an allergy specialist. There are two different types of skin tests. The first is performed on the forearm or back of the patient. A variety of suspected allergens are tested at once during this procedure. Redness or swelling will show on the test spot if you have a reaction to one of the allergens. In the second type of test, the doctor injects a small trace of each allergen into the skin of the arm.

Positive reactions to allergens typically appear within 20 minutes for both types of tests. There is sometimes a delayed reaction to an allergen which should be reported to the doctor if it appears after your visit. Children of any age as well as adults can be tested, so it’s never too late to test for allergies.

Treating allergies with immunotherapy

Allergy shots (immunotherapy) work like a vaccine.  When administered, the body responds to injected amounts of a particular allergen that is gradually increased in dose. This helps the patient to develop an immunity or tolerance to the allergen.

There are two phases to allergy shots and they include the build-up phase and the maintenance phase. During the build-up phase, our patients receive injections with an increasing amount of the allergens approximately one to two times per week. The length of time for this phase in generally 3-6 months. The maintenance phase begins when the effective dose is reached. Dependent upon the level of allergen sensitivity and patient response, there will be a range of two to four weeks between treatments during this phase.  The medical professionals at our facility will recommend what range is best for each patient.

Food Sensitivity Testing

The test is based on the principle of discovering the production of IgG antibodies against commonly consumed foods. We use Biotrinetix Laboratories for results of a comprehensive panel of foods that can associate with chronic disease and inflammation. Food sensitivity testing and food intolerance testing offers a scientifically based approach to improving nutrition, chronic conditions and overall well-being.

One month ago, I started therapies at Maplewood wellness center for severe migraines. The Doctor and all the office staff are amazing! Everyone there is very friendly and pleasant. After two weeks of treatment, I began to see improvements, and after a month, I noticed significant changes! Dr. Feiler and his team have helped me a lot to reduce migraines and feel better. I am very satisfied with my results, and I recommend Maplewood wellness center 100%
