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, fatigue, wheezing or Acid Reflux all in different patients. AAT addresses the specific organ systems affected by the allergen or offending substance.
Digestive System - Symptoms include reflux, heartburn, abdominal and intestinal pain, cramping, gas, bloating, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. Primarily caused by reactions to food or other ingestants.
Respiratory System - 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.
Dermatological symptoms - 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.
Headaches and Migraines - May be 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.
Multiple Systems - Symptoms may affect multiple systems in the body, resulting in headaches, irritability, hyperactivity, mood swings, fatigue, tachycardia, or inflammation.
•Chemicals - household cleaners, perfumes, building materials, washing detergent, pesticides
•Occupational sensitivities such as latex or building materials such as paints, glues, carpets, woods or varnishes
•Heat, cold and humidity/dampness
Symptoms associated with an allergy or sensitivity can contribute to common conditions such as: asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However not all cases involve allergies or sensitivities.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is primarily caused by sensitivities and affects approximately 15% of the population. Common symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, and bloating and abdominal pain.
Skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis and hives are commonly associated with the symptoms of an allergy or sensitivity.
Please Be Advised
AAT cannot guarantee any results. While AAT may be highly effective in the relief of many symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond.
AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised.
AAT treats allergens found in the following groups:
AAT can treat any substance or stimulus that causes a negative reaction, including:
• Shell Fish
• Animal Dander
• Detergents, Softners
• Chemicals, Latex
• Dairy Products
• Coffee and Chocolate
• Herbal Remedies
• Red Wine
• Nutritional Supplements
• White Wine
• Dust, Dust Mites
• Food Components
• Airborne Irritants
• Barometric Pressure
• Stinging Insects
• Seasonal Allergies
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.
