Many chronic illnesses are a result of immune system imbalances.  When an immune system is overactive, it releases pro-inflammatory cytokine release.  Cytokines are signaling molecules within the immune system, but also effects the nervous and endocrine systems.  Most chronic pain and fatigues in chronic disease is caused by the imbalances of cytokines.  Your T cells are the “referees” of the immune system and the target of LDI. The goal of LDI is to restore balance to the immune system by normalizing T helper cell function. Most allergenic symptoms are also caused by over reactive T helper cells as well.


LDI (low dose immunotherapy) is a new clinical therapy born from Low Dose Allergy (LDA) therapy; used for decades to treat air and food allergies. 


The following disorders are good candidates to receive LDI therapy:

  • Autoimmune diseases: inflammatory bowel disease, inflammatory arthritis, reactive arthritis, autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s), lupus, interstitial cystitis,

• Fibromyalgia

• Lyme disease

  • Chronic joint and muscle pain



What is LDI therapy?

Therapy consists of a series of non-invasive low-dose oral immunotherapy doses. After establishing the effective dose the treatments are given every 2 to 4 months. There are a number of different bacterial, viral and fungal antigens available. The current Lyme disease dose contains over 45 different antigenic materials. 


Establishing an effective dose

LDI is only effective at the correct dose. If the LDI dose is too high it can temporarily cause an increase in symptoms. Therefore, we start at a much lower dose and increase the dose until we get the desired response. These initial titration adjustments can be done weekly, but once the effective dosage is found than the LDI treatments are then taken every 2-months.
