LDA (also known as LDI) is an innvoative type of sensitization therapy. It retrains your immune system to react only to the truly dangerous antigens it encounters--NOT the pollens, food proteins, bacteria, or chemicals that many of us react to. "Allergies" occur when our immune system overreacts to non-dangerous particles (or antigens) in our blood stream. Our immune systems are equipped with two branches; one of which is designed to train the rest of the immune system when and what to react to, and what NOT to react to. This branch of the immune system is comprised of "regulatory T cells." LDA therapy basically up-regulates this branch of the immune system thereby creating more T regulatory (Treg) cells. Treg cells help train your body to not react to weed pollens, gluten proteins, etc. and instead only react to the truly dangerous antigens.
The big picture is that LDA therapy will make your immune system less reactive to non-dangerous antigens in your blood stream ultimately leaving you with fewer symptoms (coughing, sneezing, cramping, bloating, headaches, wheezing, palpitations, etc.) and a freer lifestyle.
What is the process to receive LDA?
The first step is coming into our office for Autonomic Response Testing to determine what antigens your body is reacting to. After this, a treatment plan can be devised to address all of your antigens.
How is LDA administered?
LDA is administered via sublingual drops at our office weekly for 6-8 weeks (depending on what you test positive for). This is followed by visits every 2 months for approximately 6 visits. Many people get "boosters" every year or two, and other people never need another dose.
