IF YOU HAVE BAD ALLERGIES, YOU PROBABLY HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT ALLERGY SHOTS ARE THE BEST WAY TO GET RELIEF. BUT WHO LIKES NEEDS AND WHO HAS TIME FOR SHOTS EVERY WEEK? DR. MAX GOMEZ REPORTS THERE’S A NEW WAY TO TREAT YOUR ALLERGIES IN THE FORM OF TOOTHPASTE. NOT JUST ANY TOOTHPASTE BUT A CUSTOM BLENDED TOOTHPASTE WITH A SAME EXTRACT THAT’S IN ALLERGY SHOTS. TURNS OUT THE MUCOUS MEMBRANES OF THE MOUTH ARE A REALLY GOOD WAY TO SHOW ALLERGIES TO THE IMMUNE SYSTEM SO IT STOPS OVERREACTING TO THINGS LIKE POLLEN OR MOLD. SEE HOW IT’S DOING. Reporter: DANIEL HAS ALLERGIES ALL YEAR ROUND INCLUDING POLLEN AND OTHER THINGS. I HAVE A PRETTY HIGH SENSITIVITY TO DUST MITES, MOLD, CATS. THEY WERE IS VEER, UM, AND I — I WOULD — THEY WERE SEVERE AND I WOULD HAVE CONGESTION, CONSTANT POST-NASAL DRIP AND HEADACHES. Reporter: ALLERGY SHOTS WERE INCONVENIENT AND HE SWITCHED TO ORAL ALLERGY TREATMENT DROPS UNDER THE TONGUE THAT HE HAD TO HOLD THERE FOR TWO FULL MINUTES SOMETHING THAT MANY PATIENTS FORGET TO DO CONSISTENTLY. IT’S AN ADDITIONAL THING IN YOUR ROUTINE PUTTING DROPS UNDER YOUR TONGUE AND DOING NOTHING FOR TWO MINUTES. AND IT’S BEEN FOUND THAT ADHERENCE TO THE THERAPY AND CONSISTENT USAGE IS REALLY THE DEGETTING A GREAT RESULT FROM THIS THERAPY. SO WHY NOT ADD ALLERGY THERAPY TO SOMETHING YOU DO EVERY DAY ANYWAY LIKE BRUSHING YOUR TEETH? TURNS OUT YOU CAN ADD THE SAME ALLERGENS IN DROPS TO TOOTHPASTE. AN ALLERGY SPECIALIST COMPARED THE TWO APPROACHES AND FOUND THEY PRODUCED SIMILAR RELIEF BUT THAT TOOTHPASTE WAS USED MORE CONSISTENTLY. IT’S A COMMERCIAL GRADE TOOTHPASTE SO IT FRESHENS YOUR BREATH, CLEANS YOUR TEETH AND CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO HAVE FLUORIDE TO FIGHT CAVITIES. Reporter: THE PRESCRIPTION KIT IS CUSTOMIZED. THE DOCTOR BLENDS IT INTO THE TOOTHPASTE AND PUTS IT INTO A PUMP. NOW DANIEL TREATS HAS ALLERGIES WITH HIS USUAL MORNING ROUTINE AND NO, IT DOESN’T TASTE LIKE CAT, MOLD OR POLLEN. IT TASTES GOOD. IT’S A PLEASANT MINT FLAVOR TO THE TOOTHPASTE. Reporter: BUT DO YOU HAVE TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH FOR TWO FULL MINUTES WHICH IS WHAT DENTISTS RECOMMEND ANYWAY. YOU REMEMBER, THE TOOTHPASTE IS NOT COVERED BY HEALTH INSURANCE. IT COSTS TO ABOUT $3 TO $5 A DAY. YOU SAVE THAT ON ALLERGY MEDICINE AND YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE IS BETTER.
