What Are The Most Common Allergies??

At T Off Men’s Health, we have allergy solutions. We are able to quickly test 72 of the most common allergens and discover exactly what it is you react to. We then are able to create an elixir that is specific to your allergies that you take overtime and build up an immunity to the allergens.

We are in-network with most major medical insurance companies, some of which cover allergy testing and treatment. This is not something they generally advertise, so its something that you can take advantage of if you are covered. We are happy to contact your insurance company and verify your coverage prior to your visit. You may be missing out on some life-changing coverage if you are an allergy sufferer.

This all sounds great, but what is it that you could be reacting to? Here is a slideshow of just a few common allergens. Take back your quality of life and find out what you are reacting to.

Curing Allergies Vs Treating Allergy Symptoms

Do you suffer from allergies? Do you know what it is you are actually allergic to? If you forget your morning allergy pill are you experiencing symptoms all day?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have a long-term solution for you.

Did you know that it is possible to essentially cure your allergies and save money doing it?

I did some quick research into the most common over the counter allergy pills and their monthly costs. I discovered the range of cost per month is roughly between $312-$432. Add this cost to what you are already paying monthly for medical insurance and you are looking at a high monthly cost to feel ok, as long as the pills work decently for you and actually last as long as they claim to.

Cetirizine (Zyrtec $32/month= $384 Yearly), fexofenadine (Allegra $26/month= $312 Yearly) and loratadine (Claritin $36/month= $432 Yearly)

Some insurance companies have full coverage of allergy testing and treatment. This means that you can get treatment for what you are already paying monthly. Why not put the money you are already spending to use and save that monthly over the counter treatment cost?

So what is allergy testing and even more so how does the treatment cure allergies?

We perform a quick simple test that covers 72 environmental and food allergies to discover exactly what it is you are reacting to. There are two options for tests:

  • 30-minute scratch test – Skin tests use extracts — a concentrated liquid form — of common allergens like pollen, mold, dust mites, animal dander, and foods. Once the allergen gets in your skin, it could trigger a rash. Your skin will get irritated and may itch, like a mosquito bite.
  • Blood testing – Blood tests for allergies called ELISA studies are the second line method for testing for allergies. It is typically reserved for people who for some medical reason cannot have the scratch test.

Once we have established what it is we are treating, we then decide between two treatment methods:

  • Allergy Injections – Allergy shots essentially help your body to cope better with allergens in the environment. Allergy shots also called “immunotherapy,” may work for you if allergy drugs don’t work well or you have symptoms more than three months a year.
  • Allergy Drops – Allergy drops work the same way as the shots, but are delivered under the tongue. These drops are created specifically for you depending on what is revealed in the allergy testing. They are a special elixer for your needs and are delivered to your house monthly. A very easy option.

Both allergy shots and drops must be taken on a regular basis for many months to work effectively, but have the potential to cure you of your allergies over time.

In closing, why would you not only want to save the yearly cost of over the counter allergy treatments, and put the hard earned money you are already paying for your health care insurance to good use.

How To Cure Your Allergies This Season

Texas is one of the worst states for allergies in all the US and here is why…

As the seasons begin to change, a whole other wave of allergies starts to affect the people of Texas, more specifically the DFW area. The winter is what really sets Texas apart from other areas in terms of bad allergies. Most states endure cold snaps, snow, and regularly freezing temperatures that halts pollen from being spread in the air. In Texas however, the warm environment welcomes the Juniper tree (which we associate with our cedar allergies) to release its pollen in the air. This leads to Texas’ arguably worst allergy season to happen when a large chunk of the country isn’t experiencing allergies at all.Instead of running away, you can still live here in beautiful Texas allergy free. There are plenty of ways to lessen the amount your allergies developed and allergy drops allow your body to build a resistance to these allergies so they no longer bother you.

Are you experiencing sneezing, respiratory issues, hives? How about fatigue or digestive issues? What about watering eyes, running nose or conjestion? These are just a few symptoms that could mean that you have an allergy.

Finally Get The Allergy Relief You’ve Been Looking For

Whether you experience allergies yourself or not, you definitely know someone that is affected. You know the tell-tale symptoms; red nose and eyes, sinus congestion, sneezing, runny nose and all around look of exhaustion. If you do experience this yourself you know that there can be little relief. It’s quite astounding to hear so many patients say that living other places they never experienced allergies as bad as here in Texas.

So What Are Allergies Actually?

An Allergy is an abnormal immune system response to typical household and environmental substances. These substances are called allergens. They are found in cat and dog hair, plants, molds, and foods. The allergens cause the immune system to overreact.

When a person eats, inhales or gets an allergen on their skin, an allergic reaction occurs. The body attacks the allergen as an invader by producing antibodies. The antibody, called IgE, attaches to the allergen and acts as a messenger. It calls the body’s immune system into action to defend against the allergen. The body then produces histamine from mast cells. Mast cells are found throughout the respiratory and gastrointestinal system. Histamine produces the symptoms associated with allergies such as sneezing, itching, watery eyes and gastrointestinal complaints.

How We Help

We perform a quick simple test that covers 72 environmental and food allergies to help you keep your energy levels at peak performance.

There are two methods we offer at each of our clinics to help you discover what it is that is actually causing your allergic reactions. These methods include:

– 30-minute scratch test – a skin test that uses extracts; a concentrated liquid form of common allergens. These allergins include pollen, mold, dust mites, animal dander, and different foods. Once the allergen gets in your skin, it could trigger a rash. Your skin will get irritated and may itch, like a mosquito bite indicating an allergic reaction.

– Blood testing – Blood tests for allergies called ELISA studies are the second line method for testing for allergies. It is typically reserved for people who for some medical reason cannot have the scratch test.

Once we have identified what it is you are reacting to there are two forms of treatment that we offer. These treatments include:

– Allergy Injections – Allergy shots essentially help your body to cope better with allergens in the environment. Allergy shots are also referred to as “immunotherapy”. These shots may be your best option if over the counter allergy drugs don’t work well or you have symptoms more than three months a year.

– Allergy Drops – Allergy drops work the same way as the shots, but are delivered under the tongue. Both allergy shots and drops must be taken on a regular basis for many months to work effectively.

There are many ways to combat allergies once a person knows what it is they are reacting to. It can be as simple as a shift in lifestyle and can completely raise your quality of life, yet if it goes undiagnosed it can rid you of so much. Find out what it is you are reacting to and begin to manage your life.
