Compare AllergX® To Other Allergy Options
There are many different ways both allergy sufferers and physicians treat allergy symptoms. Remember as you read this that almost ALL of these methods are used to relieve allergy symptoms, meaning that the discomfort of the allergic reaction has already begun.
In contrast to treating allergy symptoms once these symptoms have already occurred, AllergX is formulated specifically to regulate and lower the allergen antibody IgE (which is responsible for triggering allergy symptoms when an allergic individual is exposed to various allergens) before allergy symptoms begin.
Make sure you read How AllergX Works, when you are finished reviewing the following information on various allergy treatment approaches.
Allergy medications are widely available as pills, liquids, inhalers, nasal sprays, eyedrops, skin creams, and injections. Some allergy treatments and medications are available “over-the-counter” (OTC – no prescription required), and others are available by prescription only, or by direct treatment by a physician.
The largest class of allergy treatments is antihistamines. This makes sense when you understand that it’s NOT the pollen (or pet dander or dust mites) that causes allergy symptoms. These allergens are harmless and cause no discomfort to most people. But allergic individuals over-produce allergen antibodies called IgE that signal cells in the body to release histamine when you’re exposed to these allergens. Histamine causes inflammation, and allergy symptoms are the body’s reaction to the release of histamine.
So it’s no wonder that antihistamines have been the treatment of choice for decades, since antihistamines act to block or “soak up” the histamine that has been released, which is the root cause of allergy symptoms.
Antihistamines are available as pills or tablets, as well as liquids. Many antihistamines, especially in higher doses, (even those that are marketed as “non-drowsy”) cause some degree of drowsiness or sedation due to the way antihistamines work. For this reason you should never drive or undertake any potentially dangerous activity when using antihistamines.
The key to remember is that antihistamines are intended to work after the histamine has been released in your body, meaning after the allergic reaction has already begun.
Two of the most bothersome and difficult to treat symptoms of allergic reactions in cases of hay fever (allergic rhinitis) include nasal congestion and sinus congestion. There are many oral and nasal spray decongestants available over-the-counter, or by prescription.
Most decongestants are only for use for a short period of time, as prolonged used can result in a cycle of worsening or recurring congestion. Always follow your doctors’ instructions, and discuss any concerns with your physician.
Another class of allergy treatment medications is called corticosteroids. These allergy relief medications almost always require a prescription, and work by suppressing the allergy-related inflammation which is caused by the release of histamine. Corticosteroids are available as nasal sprays. Use and over-use of corticosteroids can result in uncomfortable side-effects such as an unpleasant taste or smell, nasal irritation and nosebleeds.
Corticosteroids are also available as eyedrops to relieve itchy, red and watery eyes. Typically an ophthalmologist will prescribe and monitor the use of these drops due to the risk of vision impairment, cataracts, glaucoma, and infections.
They are also available as oral concentrates and pills, but again these are meant only for short-term use, as longer-term usage can cause muscle weakness, stomach ulcers, increased blood sugar (glucose) and they can also worsen hypertension (high blood pressure).
And Then There’s AllergX®…
Use AllergX before you develop allergy symptoms. AllergX is not intended as a treatment for allergy symptoms. AllergX works before the body releases histamine, by regulating and lowering the over-production of IgE, to help restore your body’s normal response to seasonal and year-round allergens. According to Board Certified Allergist and renowned allergy researcher Dr. Paul H. Ratner, MD, a normal response to seasonal and year-round allergens is “no allergic response at all.”
AllergX is formulated to be used before the onset of allergy symptoms to lower and regulate the over-production of the allergen antibody IgE, to reduce the likelihood of a mast cell release of histamine when you are exposed to harmless allergens. This is why AllergX
In contrast to commonly marketed antihistamines, decongestants, and corticosteroids, AllergX is a ‘pre-histamine’, as it is intended to work prior to the release of histamines by lowering IgE levels and, in turn, lessening allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy nose, runny nose, and nasal congestion.
AllergX is 100% non-drowsy and non-sedating. AllergX is also all natural, gluten-free and suitable for vegetarians.
