A desensitization should always be done in a doctors office with careful monitoring. There isn't a "diet" for desensitization, although some have had success eliminating some things from there diet and feeling better because of it.
The process for a desensitization is that the doctor or nurse will give the patient a very small amount of the allergen/potential allergen/adverse reaction substance to the patient, monitor the patient for reactions, treat the reaction and then give another dose of the allergen. For some things this process can be done in one to three days. Milk and egg desensitization takes about six months.
My GP referred to the process *** allergy shots on steroids when he explained my procedure to a group of friends. Depending on the type of reactrion you have and it severity, you may need to have this done in a hospital.
As explained desensitization is done over a prolonged period of time. The severity of the allergic reaction is tested and based on this the therapy is planned. The dilution of the agent used and the course of therapy are planned according to the severity and with adequate monitoring the person is desensitized.
