I have a bottle of liquid that is meant to build my immunity to "cedar fever," a common allergy in central Texas. It is a homeopathic medicine which contains the cedar pollen at a 6X dilution, meaning 1 part pollen per 1 million parts water (or alcohol). The directions say to take 3 drops of this under your tongue 3 times per day.
I'm skeptical that this is going to do anything, but I understand that immunotherapy (allergy shots) work essentially the same way: they expose your body to a small amount of allergen to stimulate the immune system... or something like that. Anyway, that is a more standard approach that a traditional doctor would prescribe.
Are these treatments comparable? Can anyone tell me how much allergen is present in an allergy shot, so I can compare to the quantity in this homeopathic solution? Thanks!
