All-American Allergy Alternatives, LLC was founded in 2007 by Otolaryngologist Todd Meyer, DO, FAAOA, FAOCO to provide immunotherapy prescription services to meet the needs of practitioners and their allergic patients. Today, the company operates its compounding pharmacy in Appleton, WI servicing prescribers in many states across the US.
The company offers prescription services for sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) known as allergy drops, and for oral mucosal immunotherapy (OMIT) known as allergy toothpaste.
Allergy immunotherapy is the only form of treatment that treats the underlying cause of allergic diseases, not just the symptoms. Over the last ten years, multiple placebo-controlled studies have concluded that sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) is effective for the treatment of allergic diseases and has been proven to be a safe route of administration. SLIT provokes immunologic changes similar to
subcutaneous injection immunotherapy (SCIT), including changes in various biomarkers and mediators. Patients treated with SLIT had a reduction in symptom and medication scores with no serious adverse reactions.
OMIT uses a proprietary, specially formulated toothpaste to incorporate and stabilize allergenic proteins that are administered while a user brushes their teeth, delivering key agents to the areas of the oral cavity with the highest density of antigen-presenting cells, initiating the development of long-term tolerance to the causative allergen.
