What Is AAT?

What Is AAT?

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a clinically proven treatment that is highly effective in relieving the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. It is a therapeutic approach that was developed from over 16 years of clinical research. The AAT treatment does not rely on the use of medications, herbal remedies or supplements. The treatment is safe, painless and available to all ages including infants.

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics works directly with the relationship between the major organ systems and inappropriate reactions 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. With both sensitivities and allergies, symptoms typically stem from the organ system affected. For example, one patient may have a reaction to soybean by getting rashes while another patient may react with sinus congestion, heartburn or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The symptoms in each of these cases represent a different organ system involved. By treating the organ system(s) involved in a reaction, the body is able to respond more appropriately.

During treatment, gentle pressure is used on points that correspond with the organ systems involved in a reaction. The degree of stress on the organ systems caused by an allergen or offending agent is proportional to the degree of the negative reaction. While the stimulation is applied, a subtle representation of the offending substance is introduced to the surface of the skin. The stimulation reduces the stress on the effected organ system, allowing for a more appropriate response.

All holistic fields of medicine are aligned in the approach to treat the whole body.  They share the understanding that health conditions may develop as a result of interference in proper functioning caused by various forms of stress or other factors. Reducing the stress or interference allows for optimal health. When the specific organ system is supported and stress is reduced, the whole body is able to respond more appropriately.

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 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.

Initial Session & Forms to Download

INITIAL SESSION

The Initial session will take about 45 minutes and will include an assessment and a single treatment. The patient will need to arrive approximately 15 minutes PRIOR to the Initial Session to complete forms which will give the practitioner a basic history and an understanding of the symptoms that the patient is experiencing. (Forms can also be downloaded below and completed ahead of time.)

The AAT assessments  determine what is contributing to the patients symptoms. Medical allergy tests from Physicans are not required. If patients have these tests they are encouraged to bring in allergy tests from their physicians.

Following the assessment, the patient will receive a treatment.

To learn about treatments read New Patient Information and Assessment Form.

Upon completion of the Initial Session, a prioritized treatment plan will be given to the patient to let them know how many additional sessions will be needed to address their symptoms (if any). Only one allergen family can be treated per session. On average, the number of sessions required to resolve the most common conditions is between 5 and 12.

The treatment is non-invasive and completely pain free. The treatment does not require the use of needles and does not require follow up with drugs or supplements.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Many cases respond quickly to the treatment and achieve long-term results within the first few treatments. However, each case is different and some patients require additional treatment.

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

How Many Sessions Are Needed?

The number of sessions required depends on the number of items causing a reaction.  For example, a patient who reacts to five families of substances (dairy, wheat, corn, animal dander and pollen) may require between 5 to 12 sessions to relieve the symptoms or resolve a condition.

What Qualifications Do The Practitioners Have?

All practitioners at Advanced Allergy Relief Center of the Southwest are fully credentialed health care practitioners.  See the About Us page.



 

Before treatment at Advanced Allergy Relief Center of the Southwest, I experienced daily headaches (many of them migraines), a persistent cough and runny nose, constant drainage down my throat, and a general feeling of sluggishness and lack of energy. Feeling sick was my way of life for about two years. Both over the counter and prescription medicine for allergy relief were ineffective.

Today my energy level is back to normal, I sleep well again, cannot remember the last time I had a serious headache, and the cough that was unrelenting for almost two years is totally gone. My quality of life is decidedly improved at the completion of this course of treatment.

I am grateful to Caleb Gates for the quality of care I received at his hands and happily recommend Advanced Allergy Relief Center of the Southwest to those who seek a fast affordable and effective state of the art alternative to traditional allergy treatment. Sincere thanks Caleb for helping me live more comfortably in my environment.
