Food Allergy? Oral immunotherapy (OIT) safely allows allergic children and adults to no longer live in fear of their food allergy.
Since the 1990’s a great deal of research has been conducted in the area of food desensitization. While the exact protocol differs from country to country, the general theme is very consistent: take a highly allergic child or adult, give them a VERY low dose of the offending food by mouth, have them stay on it 1-2 times a day, come back to the clinic for an increase in the dose, stay on that dose at home for a week or more, and continue this process until they are tolerating a normal daily serving. This is called food oral immunotherapy, or OIT for short. Windom Allergy has been successfully offering this to patients throughout Florida and beyond since 2012.
