LDA Immunotherapy at Fairbanks Family Wellness

Provider - Amy Williamson, RN, ND

Low Dose Allergens (LDA) is an immunotherapy treatment for allergies (and allergy-related conditions) and is markedly different from traditional allergy treatments (shots) because the dose is much lower and safer, and the injection response lasts much longer. The LDA treatment produces tolerance to allergens at the cellular level using precise ultra-low doses of allergens activated by an added enzyme, beta glucuronidase, creating a highly effective formulation. Essentially LDA reboots an overwhelmed immune system, restoring the natural cellular immune tolerance to a complete range of specific environmental allergens/antigens. Because LDA helps to reboot the immune system, it can also be effective in treating autoimmune disorders. Because LDA is so low dose, no one has ever had an anaphylactic reaction to it!

Many patients report significant improvement after just one or two treatments, although the treatment becomes more effective and lasts longer with each follow up injection (or drops for children or needle phobic). Injections or drops under the tongue are given every 8 weeks for 7-8 treatments and then lengthened slowly over time to the point where a person might need a treatment once per year.

LDA is a refined form of EPD, or Enzyme Potentiated Desensitization, developed in the mid-1960’s. Some of the conditions that have been treated successfully with LDA (EPD) include hay fever, dust mite allergy, perennial rhinitis, asthma, urticaria (“hives”), eczema, angioedema (swelling of the face, lips, etc.), food (or food additive) allergy or intolerance, adverse responses to chemicals (“multiple chemical sensitivity”), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (“ADHD”), autism, Tourette’s syndrome, irritable bowel disorders, Crohn’s Disease, ulcerative colitis, migraine and other headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and systemic lupus erythematosus (“lupus”), to name just a few.
