Has anyone seen any Christmas tree bags (even if at regular price) in Markham/Richmond Hill area?
Not Markham. Oshawa had them for 29.99 with an asterisk

WTF! NO! This shouldn't be thrown around lightly or without warnings and citations. Immunotherapy is a potentially promising treatment, but it's still in its early stages. While there are encouraging results for some, there have also been severe outcomes. Do not f-around with this! This can be life and death, not DIY stuff. Even amongst allergists, there are few with the appropriate experience to do this. I'm sure that most people who deal with this personally, or with family and/or friends, know better than to even consider doing something reckless, but I still wanted to make the point for the Dunning-Kruger types that might get the idea to "cure" someone's allergy.

Physicians fret about oral immunotherapy's rigors—treatment must continue indefinitely—and its risks, which include the same allergic reactions it aims to prevent. Last year in Japan, a child suffered brain damage during a trial of immunotherapy for milk allergies.

Meanwhile, physicians on the front lines are navigating hazy science. No one knows exactly how immunotherapy works or who's most likely to be helped or hurt by it. "For me," Keet says, "it's really not clear for an average child with peanut allergy whether it will make sense to do oral immunotherapy or not."
"Physicians with deep roots in food allergy immunotherapy hope those new to it tread carefully. Doctors who offer such treatments "have to know the data cold," including published results and side effects that may crop up, Greenhawt says."

"Treatment began with a dose of about 1/125,000th of a peanut that was increased over time..."

Spot on. Edited my first post to indicate this is not a home remedy - but rather a doctor supervised treatment.

unfortunately these kinds of telescopes are not very good - you would not be happy. Get a good pair of binoculars and you will be better served
