During my live television interview (July 11, 2013) with “Focus on South Florida” show host Michelle Guillen, we discussed increase in allergy symptoms during the summer months due to increased outdoor pollen exposure, dust mites who thrive on warm and humid conditions, food and skin allergies due to seasonal fruits, and stinging insects.  The need to properly diagnose and treat allergic nose and eye symptoms as well as asthma was discussed. The most “natural” way to treat and send the allergy symptoms away is through allergy immunotherapy, often referred to as “allergy shots” . One uses an extract made from natural allergens and by giving small amounts on a regular basis as a subcutaneous injection, the body builds an immunity to these items, no longer seeing the as foreign substances (allergens).  After a few years of treatment, most people can stop the treatment and remain controlled. I also emphasized the need for insect and food allergy patients to always carry two of the auto-injectors of epinephrine, available as Epi-Pen or Auvi-Q.
