WHAT CASES CANNOT BE TREATED AND WHY?
The Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) treatment can only address conditions caused by inappropriate reactions to harmless substances or stimuli. If the condition involves pathogens, (bacteria, viruses or parasites) the treatment will not be able to affect such cases.
AAT cannot treat lactose intolerance. If the symptoms are related to an allergy to milk or other dairy products, the treatment can be very effective. However, lactose intolerance in not an allergy, it is the inability to digest certain amounts of lactose, the major sugar found in milk. The condition is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells of the lining in the small intestine. Lactose intolerance is often confused with dairy allergies because the symptoms are similar, yet they are unrelated. However, the two conditions can occur together and in such cases, the AAT treatment can offer partial benefit.
While AAT can treat the many symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond to the treatment.
The treatment may also be complicated by multiple symptoms, some of which may not be the result of an allergy. In addition, some sufferers have more than one substance contributing to one specific allergy symptom. This compounds the challenge in identifying the correct substance responsible for the reaction.
HAS THE AAT TREATMENT BEEN MEDICALLY PROVEN?
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics is not a medical treatment. It has been developed from an entirely different field of therapeutics using the principles of traditional acupuncture. However, multiple scientific studies on acupuncture and acupressure stimulation have shown specific biological effects that contribute to a relaxed state, such as a release in endogenous opioids and oxytocin, which also seem to be essential in the induction of functional changes of different organ systems. Studies also show a release in endorphins which resemble the opiates in their abilities to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being.
Additionally, studies have shown that manual nerve stimulation can also give a sustained reduction in blood pressure. Alterations in blood pressure and heart rate are general results of sympathetic tone changes and patients with essential hypertension have shown reductions in blood pressure when treated with acupuncture.*
The measureable effects of acupuncture and acupressure in the reduction of biological stress provide scientific evidence of the mechanism involved in the effectiveness of the AAT method.

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO AAT PRACTITIONERS HAVE?
All AAT practitioners are fully credentialed health care professionals, including medical doctors, RNs, Osteopaths, acupuncturists, naturopaths, chiropractors and holistic veterinarians.
DOES AAT TREAT ANAPHYLAXIS?
AAT does not treat cases involving anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms.
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
For over fifteen years, AAT patients have consistently reported long-term results. However, AAT cannot guarantee that symptoms won’t recur or that new allergies or sensitivities will not develop in the future.
WHY SHOULD ALLERGY SUFFERERS CHOOSE AAT ?
Patients are advised to seek the most effective treatment for their case. Conventional treatment involves avoidance of the allergen, medications to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction or injections to desensitize the patient to the allergen.
Drugs such as antihistamines may relieve symptoms of the allergy. Many over-the-counter and prescribed medications can be very effective and offer significant relief.
Desensitizing the patient to the allergen involves a series of injections over a long-term period.
Avoiding substances that cause allergic reactions may be impossible for many sufferers, as is the case with allergies to airborne pollens, pollution or chemicals in building materials. For people with multiple allergies/sensitivities, particularly to food, avoidance can have a considerable impact on the patient's quality of life, as they can often be heavily restricted to what they can eat.
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics offers effective relief from symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities without the need for avoidance or the use of herbal or homeopathic remedies or special diets.
