Dr. Silvers is one of the few allergists in the country to offer a oral immunotherapy to treat food allergies. His program usually takes 6 months to complete.  At the end of his program, most patients are able to consume wheat, eggs, peanuts and/or milk without any adverse reactions.

From the Texan Allergy website:

There’s another way to tackle food allergies – oral immunotherapy treatment (OIT). OIT is a process in which the patient is given small, incremental amounts of their allergenic food to decrease sensitivity to their food allergies. Over the period of about six months, the patient will incrementally increase the dose of the food, allowing he or she to freely eat the food that previously threatened their health.

How Does Texan Allergy OIT Work?

The OIT process can be broken down into four phases:

  1. Initial dosing: six to eight doses are given in a single day (occurs during a four-six hour time period under physician supervision).
  2. Build up dosing: the dose is increased incrementally every one to two weeks under observation until the maintenance dose is reached, usually over a period of about six months.
  3. Maintenance dosing:  doses are taken daily for years depending on the physician’s recommendation.
  4. Long-term resistance and the ability to eat the foods that previously threatened your health.

What is the Desired End Result of OIT?

The primary goal of OIT is to be able to consume a full serving of the allergen without experiencing any adverse reaction: 1 glass of milk, 1 egg, a handful of peanuts, etc.
