AWESOME!!! I know that SLIT is awesome for environmental allergies. My almost 6 yr old daughter has been getting treatment for her enviros for 2 years, and has made unbelievable progress, and even lost a few lesser allergies, while all are so amazingly better I can barely believe it! (We observe the results in real life, not just with testing. She can now play in grass w/out head to toe hives!!!) I do think that SLIT will be a viable option for some food allergies. What exciting news!

Great overview! KFA- is there any additional info about the use of Allergen non-specific therapies for EoE? What about accupressure or homeopathics? Thank you!

This gives me hope that my child will eventually be allergy free and his life will not be in danger from a simple item of food! Thank you so much for this great article in layman terms so that we parents can understand it!
