In brief: Mechanism

It changes the regulating mechanism of the immune system to lower the specific types of ige antibodies and raising the igg4 antibodies.
Allergy patient usually (90%) have too much ige antibodies which combine with the allergic protein and after bridging on a mast cell, a chemical reaction is produced resulting in your symptoms.
