"My 5 year old son was allergic to everything. Every time he ate he would break out in a rash over his face and he would get dark red rings under his eyes, he would also get really hyperactive and out of control--I was very concerned about him. I called some allergy specialists and it was going to cost me up to $500.00 just to test what he was allergic to. Then he would have to have been treated over several years with a series of injections containing harmful preservatives and there was no guarantee that it would work.

So I looked towards alternative medicine for a solution. When I first spoke to Dr Tan, I have to admit that I was skeptical, but I decided to give it a go because it was all I could afford and I didn't like the alternatives. My skepticism continued through the first treatment, but when I saw the results, I have to say that I believe this system works. Although we are only 1/3 of the way through his treatments, he looks so much better. He can now eat his favorite - yoghurt with out breaking out in a rash and his behavior is greatly improved.

Thank you Dr Tan for your great work, this is a blessing."

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics

A HOLISTIC APPROACH FOR THE RELIEF OF SYMPTOMS CAUSED BY ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) is a non-invasive treatment that effectively addresses the many symptoms caused by allergies and sensitivities.

Allergies and sensitivities are caused by an error: the body is responding inappropriately to a harmless substance. AAT treats the overreaction by reducing the stress on the body in relation to the offending substance, creating a positive association so that the body may respond more appropriately. 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.


WHAT IS AN ALLERGY?
Allergies are a physiological error. The body reacts negatively to harmless substances, foods or stimuli. The word "allergy" comes from the Greek 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 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. However, there are also non-IgE-immune sensitivities as well as involvement with IgA, IgG or IgG4.

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 circulating immunoglobulins is generally unknown.

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 15 years of clinical research, reconditioning the body to respond more appropriately to harmless substances. The success of the treatment is attributed to the extensive knowledge base and in-depth study of the allergens and offending agents, allowing for the treatment of a broad range of symptoms. 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.

HOW AAT WORKS?
AAT treats the symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities by reducing the biological stress caused by the offending substance. Gentle pressure is used to stimulate points on the back, which correspond with the major organ systems. According to traditional acupuncture theory, this stimulation relaxes the body and temporarily strengthens each of the major organ systems. During treatment, a subtle representation of the substance is introduced to the surface of the skin. Acupressure stimulation is then applied to reduce the stress load caused by the substance. The body associates the enhanced state with the substance, allowing for a more appropriate response.

The degree of stress on the organ systems, caused by an allergen, is proportional to the degree of the negative reaction. By easing the stress on the organ system involved, the related symptoms are also reduced, allowing for a positive conditioning effect.


CONDITIONS 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. AAT addresses the specific organ systems affected by the allergen or offending substance.

PLEASE BE ADVISED
AAT cannot guarantee any results. While AAT can provide relief for many symptoms caused by allergies or sensitivities, some cases do not respond.

AAT does not treat cases of anaphylaxis or life threatening symptoms. Strict avoidance is always advised.
