The AAT treatment can only address symptoms caused by inappropriate reactions to harmless substances or stimuli. If the condition involves pathogens, (bacteria, viruses or parasites) the treatment will not be able to affect such cases.
AAT cannot treat lactose intolerance. If the symptoms are related to a sensitivity to milk or other dairy products, the treatment can be very effective. However, lactose intolerance in not an allergy, it is the inability to digest certain amounts of lactose, the major sugar found in milk. The condition is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme lactase, which is produced by the cells of the lining in the small intestine. Lactose intolerance is often confused with dairy allergies because the symptoms are similar, yet they are unrelated. However, the two conditions can occur together and in such cases, the AAT treatment can offer partial benefit.
While AAT can treat the many symptoms associated with allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond to the treatment.
All AAT practitioners are fully credentialed health care professionals, including medical doctors, RNs, Osteopaths, acupuncturists, naturopaths, chiropractors and holistic veterinarians.
AAT does not treat cases involving anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms.
Many cases respond within the first few treatments. However, each case is different and may require additional treatment. As with all health care modalities, some cases will not respond to treatment.

No, patients do not need to stop taking medication that has been prescribed by a medical doctor without his/her authorization. You may continue taking over the counter medication to control current symptoms, as this will not affect the treatment.
AAT does not offer allergy testing only an assessment of what may be causing a stress to various systems. Patients are encouraged to bring in allergy tests from their physicians.
No. A food intolerance is different from an allergy or sensitivity in that there may be an enzyme deficiency, which inhibits the body from properly digesting the substance. Such cases are not affected by the treatment.
AAT does not treat any symptoms of allergies or sensitivities involving life threatening reactions or anaphylaxis. Strict avoidance is always advised.
