allergy-vaccinesAllergy shots, also known as allergy vaccines have an interesting history. The idea behind a vaccination is this: That which doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. No doubt, all these developments in vaccinations around the turn of the century gave rise to allergists experimenting with the same principles in an attempt to treat allergies. This is based on the notion that inoculations small but increasing doses of the offending allergens will eventually induce a tolerance to the allergen.

However, “allergy shots” that a conventional allergist administers represents a rather crude approach that is rarely effective. A recent study reported in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine shows that shots are of no significant benefit as compared with a placebo when it comes to treating children with asthma.

Why Are Allergy Shots Still Used?

Consider treatments for a diagnosis of food sensitivity, relief can usually be observed by the mere avoidance of the offending foods. One can readily see the economic advantage for the allergist to continue to give and charge for weekly shots rather than give dietary advice just once. The true answer may lie more within economics than within science.

In fact, it is believed that as high as 28% of allergy shot patients actually have an allergic response to the vaccine itself thus creating an acute allergic response. In fewer cases, patients have reported that they would consider their allergic response from a single allergy shot to be “serious”. The fact that many allergists know that a serious reaction may be possible have caused them to reduce the allergens placed in the vaccine itself and thus reducing it’s effectiveness.

Many allergy patients and some allergists have stopped using allergy shots for allergy reactions due to both their ineffectiveness and the danger of a serious reaction. Many of these same individuals are reporting better results from avoiding the allergens themselves combined with methods of boosting the immune response of allergy sufferers with known food supplementation.
