LDA Therapy: How To Support the Process & See Your Best Results
Do allergies get in the way of your everyday enjoyment? LDA Therapy is a revolutionary way to stop the disruption, calming your immune system so that certain substances no longer cause uncomfortable symptoms.
LDA Therapy, or Low Dose Antigen Therapy, works well for both allergies and auto-immune disorders, teaching the immune system to be more tolerant of its external and internal environment.
To support your body on its journey to being allergy-free, it is important to control what you ingest and are exposed to throughout the treatment process, being especially careful around the time of each injection:
Minimize Exposure to Allergens and Irritants
Hire a Pet Sitter
If animals irritate your system, it is important to stay away from them for the two days prior to each injection. We know it can be hard to be away from your pets— After your treatment is complete, though, you’ll be able to enjoy your time with them more fully.
Clean Your Home
Dust and mold are huge contributors to inflammation— Clean your house thoroughly before you receive every shot, making sure to do so before the chemical restriction timeframe begins. Stay away from any spaces where you know dust and mold are rampant.
Refrain from Excess Heat
Extreme exercise and high temperatures cause the LDA process to slow down and decline in effectiveness. While mild exercise and a small amount of sun exposure should be alright, overdoing it can have detrimental consequences.
Fow two days prior to each treatment, avoid using any fragrance that is applied to or comes into contact with the skin. This includes taking a break from perfumes, as well as wearing clothes that have not been treated with fabric softener.
Avoid your known environmental allergens at all costs around the time of treatment. While this may restrict the number of activities you can engage in, it also goes hand-in-hand with reduced sun exposure and physical activity.
Use Natural Toothpaste
It is important to stay away from sodium lauryl sulfate around the time of treatment—a key ingredient in many toothpastes. To be safe and prevent interference with your therapy, use baking soda or natural toothpaste instead while brushing your teeth.
Stay Away From Chlorine
Refrain from swimming in chlorinated pools or hot tubs before and after each injection. Since saunas elevate your body temperature and also tend to be rich in chlorine, it is best to avoid these altogether too.
Avoid Contact with Chemicals
Any and all chemicals that can escape into the air around you or come into contact with your skin should be avoided the day prior to, the day of, and the day following each shot. If you have doubts about a certain substance, stay away from it and opt for a natural alternative.
Follow All Nutrition Guidelines & Get a Nutrient IV
Based on the severity of your allergies, as well as the class of allergens that affect you most, a clinic will classify you as a level one, two, or three patient. There are specific diets that need to be followed at each level during the days before, of, and after each injection. Strict adherence to these guidelines helps clients to optimize the benefits of their LDA treatment plan.
To see your best results, you should also book an appointment to receive a nutrient IV before each visit while following your suggested diet. This will give your body an influx of nutrients to support it in restoring immune tolerance.
Level 1 Patients

Get approval before taking:
