FDA Peanut Capsule

FDA Peanut Capsule
Because of the amazing success of food oral immunotherapy (OIT) at  Windom Allergy  and other clinics around the world, a pharmaceutical company is close to having their peanut capsule, Palforzia, approved by the FDA.  Obtaining FDA approval for the same OIT protocol we’ve been using for years, legitimizes this life changing therapy for all of those doctors and patients who felt the need for this ultimate FDA stamp before pursuing peanut desensitization. Yes, the commercial capsule has been checked for purity and full peanut composition, a requirement to make peanut a drug, but we remain comfortable using regular peanuts to desensitize...

Remembering 9/11 & The New Health Law

jon-sailer-Zh6EHGB9b5I-unsplash
It’s been eighteen years since the tragic day our nation was attacked and the World Trade Center fell. We will always remember that day, where we were, who we were with, and the fear we felt for our country. But amongst the chaos and dust of the towers, our first responders were undeniably heroes.  Unfortunately, this World Trade Center dust also caused chronic breathing issues that still affects many survivors and first responders today. Thankfully in July 2019 a law was passed to ensure full funding for the 9/11 victims compensation fund.  If you would like to learn more, please visit ...

Long Trip Home

We said goodbye to two patients from the UK and one from Trinidad this week! We wish them the very best as they return home, safely eating small amounts of peanut and cashew.  These kids came over with their parents for 5-6 weeks in Sarasota to start the oral immunotherapy (OIT) process for their severe food allergy. They will continue daily OIT dosing in their home country until they can return to the Florida gulf coast to complete ‘updosing’ to our goal of three nuts daily. We loved spending time with Michael, Rosa, and River! Thinking about coming to see us...

Is This a Good Time to Talk?

Is This a Good Time to Talk?
The less hectic pace of summer could be just the right time to consider taking a definitive step to control your allergies.  If you have allergic asthma, runny nose/hay fever, or sinus problems, you probably have a medicine cabinet full of antihistamines, inhalers, and nose sprays to help you limp through the various allergy seasons.  Is there a better answer?  Yes, there is, and it’s called desensitization. Allergen desensitization has been around for over 100 years, often referred to as allergen immunotherapy or allergy shots.  This remains the most effective way to ‘turn off’ your airborne allergies.  Another option, for those...
