What is OIT?

OIT

Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) for food allergies, is a medical treatment, guided by a Board Certified Allergist, which re-trains the immune system to become desensitized to food allergens through regular ingestion of food proteins at increasing doses.

The Process

Qualifying Visit

Time Commitment: approximately 2 hour

Day 1 Treatment

Time Commitment: Full day visit (six to eight hours)
