Help! I have been experiencing allergy symptoms lately and am tired of taking over-the-counter allergy medicines, I am afraid of needles and I don’t want to take a steroid. Is there anything else I can do?
Yes, there is. I have been recommending a fairly new holistic approach for the relief of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities called Advanced Allergy Therapeutics.
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) offers a unique and highly effective approach in treating the many symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. AAT is a precision-based therapy that treats the organ systems involved in an overreaction. AAT does not treat the immune system; instead, the therapy focuses on inappropriate reactions to a harmless substance in relation to the organs systems to produce rapid, long-term results for the relief of associated symptoms. AAT merges 21st century science with 3,000-year-old traditional acupuncture principles in offering an effective alternative in the treatment of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities…and here are the best aspects of the treatment:
- No needles
- No herbal remedies
- No supplements
- No long-term avoidance
What is an Allergy?
Allergies are physiological errors. The body is basically reacting negatively to harmless substances, foods or stimuli. The word “allergy” comes from the Greek word allos, meaning “other”. It was first used in 1906 to refer to an “altered reaction” in the body’s immune system.
An allergic reaction occurs when the body comes in contact with the allergen. This can occur through contact with the skin, inhalation, injection or ingestion of the substance.
Medical treatment generally includes: avoidance of the allergen, medications to reduce the symptoms of the allergic reaction or injections to desensitize the patient to the allergen. The medical classification of a “true allergy” requires an IgE-mediated response. (This generally requires that the person has a prescribed epi-pen on hand for use in emergency situations). However, there are also non-IgE-immune sensitivities as well as involvement with IgA, IgG or IgG4 (these are immunoglobulins that are a part of our immune system’s protective response to perceived pathogens).
The use of the word “allergy” has become a generic term used by the public to describe allergies, sensitivities and intolerances. The distinction of a true allergy based on immunoglobulin involvement is generally unknown; therefore, the term “allergy” is often understood as a term for any negative reaction from exposure to a benign substance. The good news is that there are options available to address these reactions. AAT is one such option that treats the symptoms caused by any negative or inappropriate reaction regardless if the symptoms are caused by allergies or sensitivities.
