How does Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) work to reduce allergic reactions?
First, it is necessary to understand that most allergies are inappropriate responses to harmless substances. These mistakes in perception are corrected by first identifying the agent reacted to, then providing a positive stimulus to the system while the person is exposed to low-level contact. This reeducates the body to see the agent as acceptable.
Does Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) treatment involve needles?
No, the treatment involves an acupressure-based technique applied to locations along the spine that correspond to acupuncture points. These points also correspond to nerve ganglia that connect to the internal organs. It is gentle, and some find it very relaxing.
How many treatments will I need?
There are multiple families of allergens, and Advanced Allergy Therapeutics can only treat one family at a time. Each family may require one to three treatments to resolve. So, the number of treatments required is determined by individual response to treatment, and the number of allergen families one is reacting to. People with only one family of allergens often are clear of symptoms in one or two sessions.
Does Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) work for everyone?
No, and nothing does. Some people find that they get enough of a reduction in their symptoms after treating one family of allergens that they decide to live with the minor symptoms that remain.
Will my seasonal allergies come back next year?
You might need follow-up sessions. Everyone is different, and different allergies behave differently. Most sufferers find that this method allows them to effectively manage their allergies without drugs.
