In brief: Immunotherapy
Allergies are inappropriate immune reactions to food or environmental substances that some people develop.
These inappropriate immune responses disappear if a mechanism of immune tolerance develops. This can occur naturally with time, explaining how we 'grow out' of allergies, or can be induced by allergen immunotherapy or 'allergy shots'. This is well estalished for ragweed allergy.
