What Is The Average Treatment Duration?

The average duration of treatment is approximately 2.5 – 4 years, but the specific time frame varies by individual and their level of compliance within the program.

The duration of the Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP) varies based on the individual’s immune system, and the type and total number of allergens. TIP treats all allergens simultaneously, meaning if a child is allergic to five foods, they will undergo TIP while openly consuming all five foods. The advanced diagnostic testing, aided by AI, can identify allergies to specific food proteins, such as seeds or fish, that patients may not be aware of initially. These additional allergens will also be addressed during the treatment. At the conclusion of TIP, individuals will no longer have to worry about food allergies.

Is TIP Safe?

Yes, TIP is the safest, most effective food allergy treatment program available. Unlike exposure therapy (also known as Oral Immunotherapy), which exposes patients directly to foods they are severely allergic to, TIP never begins by introducing patients directly to their allergens. Instead, TIP uses foods similar in structure to an allergen (biosimilar proteins) to retrain the immune system and safely develop tolerance. This method has allowed us to achieve an adverse event rate of less than 1%.

How TIP Works

What Is The Timeline For Getting Started With Treatment? What Can I Expect At My Initial TIP Appointments?

Please submit your registration paperwork and deposit to schedule your initial TIP appointments at one of our Southern California locations. Below is an estimated schedule and description of your first appointments. 

  • Tele-boarding Call (1-4 weeks):

This visit will be completed via video call with one of our physicians. Our physician will review your child’s current food consumption and medical history and answer your basic questions about the program. 

  • Onboarding Appointment (8-12 weeks):

Onboarding is the first in-person appointment. This visit includes an interview
process, built on your Tele-Boarding Call results, a physical exam, a skin prick test, and blood tests.

  • Launch Appointment (8-12 Weeks):

During your 2-5 day Launch visit, your child will undergo a 24-hour patch test and meet with one of our physicians to review the results and their custom treatment plan based on our analytics. Patients will also complete their first Food Challenge at this visit.

  • Food Challenge Appointment:

A food challenge is a monitored office visit during which a patient will consume a large amount of a sensitized allergen, followed by exercise to ensure safe consumption at home. After each challenge, these foods will move into your child’s maintenance plan.
