What Is AAT

AAT: A CLINICALLY PROVEN AND SAFE THERAPY FOR THE MANY SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a clinically proven treatment that is highly effective in treating the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. It was developed through over 28 years of collaborative research by healthcare professionals in the fields of acupuncture, naturopathy, and chiropractic. What makes AAT different is that it doesn’t rely on medication, herbal remedies, or supplements. And the best part? It’s completely safe and painless and is available to people of all ages, so everyone can benefit from this therapeutic approach.

The AAT method works directly with the relationship between the major organ systems and overreactions to harmless substances. While the immune system is responsible for initiating an immune reaction in the case of true allergies, it is the health and state of the organ systems that often determines the type of symptoms that may arise.

When it comes to sensitivities and allergies, symptoms typically stem from the organ system affected.

When it comes to reactions, using soybeans as an example, symptoms can vary greatly from person to person. For instance, one patient may experience rashes, while another may experience sinus congestion, heartburn, or even irritable bowel syndrome. Each of these symptoms represents a different organ system that is involved. By focusing treatment on the specific organ system(s) involved in a reaction, the body is better equipped to respond more appropriately to a substance, which means fewer symptoms.

It’s interesting to note that when it comes to allergic reactions, there can be a few potential culprits at play. On the one hand, the organ system itself may react, resulting in symptoms associated with that system. On the other hand, mast cells located in the tissues may also contribute to a reaction. These mast cells, which are known for playing a central role in the allergic response, can actually be activated by non-allergic triggers like stress, according to an increasing body of evidence. This means that the body may display symptoms that are similar to those caused by a true allergy, without any immune response at all. Nevertheless, in the event of a true allergy, treating the reactive organs could lead to a reduction or resolution of the associated symptoms.

UNDERSTANDING THE AAT METHOD

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, treatment methods involve stimulating specific points on the body to directly access each organ system and improve its state. The AAT therapy takes this approach one step further by utilizing the points in a unique and innovative way that has been proven to lead to successful treatments.

The treatment points are situated along the spine and correspond to the location of the Sympathetic chain, which is responsible for our body’s “fight or flight” responses. By targeting reactive organ systems through these points in relation to an offending substance, it’s possible to alter a defensive state, allowing for a healthier response.

At AAT, we understand that some people may be apprehensive about needles. That’s why our method utilizes a precision-based acupressure technique to treat organ systems, rather than needles. Our unique approach of addressing defensive physiology has proven to be highly effective in altering the state of the organ systems. The AAT therapy has been developed as an Integrative Medicine and is offered by certified AAT practitioners who come from a variety of backgrounds, including Acupuncturists, Chiropractors, Naturopathic Doctors, Osteopaths, Medical Doctors, and Registered Nurses.

It’s important to note that AAT is exclusively used by licensed healthcare professionals in private practice. Each practitioner combines various modalities from within their scope of practice, and they may offer additional testing or treatment methodologies that align with their unique approach to patient care.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING AN AAT TREATMENT

During treatment, an AAT practitioner will apply gentle pressure to specific points along the spine that correspond with the organ systems involved in a reaction.

During the point stimulation process, a digital representation of the offending substance is introduced to the skin’s surface through an arm cuff. By stimulating specific points, stress on the affected organ systems can be reduced. Since the point stimulation and the substance exposure occur simultaneously, the body can form a new association with the item due to the decreased stress on the systems, no longer perceiving the substance as harmful and allowing for a more appropriate response.

In the world of holistic medicine, there’s a common understanding that treating the whole body is crucial to achieving optimal health. It’s believed that various forms of stress and interference can disrupt the proper functioning of the body, leading to health issues. By reducing stress and interference, we can support the specific organ system and help the body respond more effectively. Ultimately, this approach allows for optimal health and wellness.

THE BENEFITS OF AAT

At AAT, we understand that every person is unique and will experience different reactions to substances a well as react to different components within the same substance. That’s why all of the AAT treatment protocols are completely customized to suit each person’s specific symptoms and can identify the specific substances or components that are causing negative reactions. We’re proud to say that most of our patients continually report significant improvements in their symptoms or even complete resolution after just a few sessions with AAT.

At AAT, we believe in providing our clients with safe, natural, and effective treatment options for the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. We understand that medications can sometimes cause unwanted side effects and long-term health risks, and that a lifetime of avoidance can be incredibly challenging. That’s why we offer a non-invasive therapy that can help you regain control of your health and well-being. Whether you’re dealing with one sensitivity or multiple sensitivities, AAT can be a wonderful option to help reduce your symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

AAT does not diagnose allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances.
AAT does not test for allergies or sensitivities. AAT simply assesses what may be causing stress to the body.
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.
AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life-threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised in these cases.
