Allergy Symptoms Treated

SYMPTOMS TREATED

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.  Advanced Allergy Therapeutics addresses the specific organ systems affected by the allergen or offending substance.

Digestive System

Symptoms include acid 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, animals (including dog and cat dander and bird feathers), air-borne substances and contactants.

Dermatological

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.

General

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.

Animals

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.


SUBSTANCES TREATED

Offending substances are categorized in the following groups:

  • Contactants
  • Inhalants
  • Ingestants

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) can treat any substance or stimulus that causes a negative reaction, including:

Shellfish, fruit, berries, eggs, nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant), grains, dairy products, coffee and chocolate, red and white wine and their sulfite preservatives, beer, food components, airborne irritants, dust and dust mites, seasonal allergies, animal-related sensitivities, fabrics, detergents and cleaning products, latex and plastics, chemicals and pesticides, perfumes, herbal remedies and nutritional supplements, insects, sunlight and barometric pressure.

It is important to note that some sensitivities are to things that are inherently toxic, and should be avoided. If one is unable to avoid certain toxic substances, this process may reduce the degree of discomfort due to exposure.

 


 

PLEASE BE ADVISED

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (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.
