What is AAT?
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) offers a unique and highly effective approach in treating the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. AAT is a precision-based therapy that treats the organ systems involved in an overreaction. AAT does not treat the immune system; instead, the therapy focuses on inappropriate reactions to a harmless substance in relation to the organs systems to produce rapid, long-term results for the relief of associated symptoms. AAT merges 21st century science with 3,000-year-old traditional acupuncture principles in offering an effective alternative in the treatment of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities.

What Common Allergens or Offending Agents can be treated? FAQ's
AAT does not diagnose allergies, sensitivities or intolerances.
AAT does not test for allergies or sensitivities. The AAT system simply assesses what may be causing a stress to the body.
AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life-threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised in these cases.
AAT does not cure allergies, nor does the therapy treat the immune system. AAT is a highly effective treatment that provides long-term relief from symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities.
What are Allergies/Sensitivities?
Allergies and sensitivities are caused by an inappropriate reaction to harmless substances. The word “allergy” comes from the Greek allos, meaning “other”. It was first used in 1906 to refer to an “altered reaction” in the body’s immune system.
A “true allergy” is a reaction triggered by the immune system, however there are a vast number of symptoms or conditions caused by sensitivities that may or may not involve the immune system. With reactions involving food, a large percentage of the population believe they have allergies, yet fewer than 2% actually have true allergies. In fact, many suffer from undiagnosed food sensitivities or intolerances. The majority of patients who seek the AAT treatment do not have true allergies; their symptoms are likely to be caused by sensitivities with no immune involvement. Since there are few options for the treatment of sensitivities, other than avoidance, AAT provides a highly effective alternative. Symptoms caused by true allergies, however, also respond well to the treatment as the organs systems involved in the reaction are also addressed.
The use of the word “allergy” has become a generic term used by the public to describe allergies, sensitivities and intolerances.
What symptoms do you treat?
This technique has helped with relief of issues such as irritable bowel syndrome, respiratory problems like asthma, dermatological problems, headache, fatigue, multiple systems such as ADHD, as well as general environmental sensitivities. AAT can treat any substance or stimulus that causes a negative reaction such as shell fish, red and white wine, beer, chemicals, latex, fruit, food components, perfumes, berries, airborne irritants, eggs, dust, dust mites, nutritional supplements, nightshades, seasonal allergies, environmental, grains, animal dander, woods, metals, dairy, fabrics, upholstery, plastics, stinging insects, coffee, chocolate, detergents, softeners, sunlight and barometric pressure.
A sensitivity or inappropriate reaction may cause symptoms from any organ system in the body. Some systems are prone to reacting to certain families of allergies or substances, such as the respiratory system reacting to pollen. However, a substance may affect any organ system, which could cause a multitude of symptoms varying from case to case. For example, a reaction to wheat may cause hives in one person, digestive issues in another, and fatigue or wheezing or Acid Reflux in other patients. AAT addresses the specific organ systems affected by the allergen or offending substance.
Symptoms include acid reflux, heartburn, abdominal and intestinal pain, cramping, gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. Primarily caused by food allergens or other ingestants. IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is primarily caused by sensitivities and affects approximately 15% of the population. Common symptoms of IBS include diarrhea, constipation, and bloating and abdominal pain.
Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, runny nose, wheezing, shortness of breath, coughs, postnasal drip, skin conditions, rashes and itchy, watery eyes. Reactions may be associated with pollens, dust, food, chemicals and animals (including dog and cat dander and bird feathers), air-borne substances and contactants.
Symptoms may include red, itchy, or scaly skin rashes, blisters with oozing and crusting, dry leathery patches or hives. The main cause of dermatological reactions can be a reaction to food but can also be caused by plants, contactants and chemicals. Skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis and hives are commonly associated with the symptoms of and allergy or sensitivity.
Headaches and Migraines
Often caused by reactions to food such as chocolate and caffeine, airborne irritants such as pollens and chemicals including household cleaners, perfumes and vehicle fumes.
Tiredness and Fatigue
Many reactions result in lethargy and feelings of fatigue. Tiredness can also occur at certain times of the day, such as in the afternoon after eating.
Symptoms may affect multiple systems in the body, resulting in headaches, irritability, hyperactivity, mood swings, fatigue, tachycardia, or inflammation. Symptoms associated with an allergy or sensitivity can contribute to Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However not all cases involve allergies or sensitivities.

We cannot guarantee that new symptoms will not develop in the future.

We recommend out-of-state patients stay at a local hotel or with acquaitences of theirs. They are treated twice a day for a week. Although we can only treat one allergen family at a time, a person can be treated twice in one day if there is a two-hour window between treatments. This approach is helpful for people who come from long distances.
