Story Summary

Allergies are one of the leading causes of chronic illness in the U.S., affecting as many as 60 million people each year. Sandi Kiehl is one of them.

“Especially in the fall, with all the dead leaves and everything, I would be wheezing and have shortness of breath and watery eyes,” Kiehl said.

Every evening after dinner, Kiehl heads to her refrigerator and takes out a vial of drops. The drops are a form of immunotherapy that helps her tolerate environmental allergens, such as mold and pollen.
