Is immunotherapy the same as homeopathy?

  • No. Immunotherapy is not homeopathy. Allergy vaccines (under the tongue or injections) are produced from standardised allergens, contain a known amount of the major allergen and they have been evaluated in large number of clinical studies.
  • Immunotherapy extracts contain high concentrations of the allergen (allergic protein) and the aim is to build up to a high dose. In contrast, homeopathy is unproven in the treatment of allergic diseases, and relies on progressive dilution of the allergen. The “most potent” homeopathic treatments contain no allergen.
