What is Allergy Treatment Protocol (ATP)?
ATP is a simple, natural new approach that enables one’s body to recognize sensitivities or intolerances, assisting in recovery from associated allergy-like symptoms, without the use of needles or drugs.
How does ATP work?
A lightweight state-of-the-art device is used to transmit a low electronic frequency directly onto various acupuncture points (without the use of needles) on the body to stimulate and clear any blockages in energy known as stressors. During this procedure the client is exposed to the frequencies of the substances they are intolerant or sensitive to (not the actual substances themselves). While the blockages are clearing, the body’s cells can adapt to recognize the stressing frequency. When this non-invasive and painless procedure is complete, the body will hopefully no longer see the sensitivity or intolerance as a threat when exposed to it, therefore no longer producing any adverse reactions.
Does ATP have any side effects?
It is rare, though some patients may experience a healing crisis or a short period of time where symptoms get worse before improving. The body is readjusting and detoxifying which can cause this aggravation. To a lesser degree some patients may feel a little fatigue, extra thirst or increased urination for a short time after their treatment.
How many ATP treatments are required?
This will depend on what health conditions are being addressed. Many allergens require only a few sessions for complete results. The number of visits depend on the category of allergens we are treating (e.g.. food, pollens, heavy metals) and how many allergens the patient has.
Will I notice results right away? How long does the effect last?
Most patients find immediate results after the first visit, while others require several visits to detect and remove all suspect causes, particularly if an individual has many intolerances. In extreme cases, those with severe intolerances have reported a 4 to 6 week period lapsed after their session before feeling complete relief of their symptoms.
However, if something dramatic has changed – illness, high stress, surgery; events that stress the body’s functions and organs; some reactions may return. These circumstances are also addressed during your session to mitigate and to treat if necessary.
It requires only one to four sessions to clear all stressors causing a sensitivity or intolerance. Approximately, 75-80% of intolerances are cleared the first session. However, depending on the degree of intolerance, and stress level of the patient, the other 20-25% may require a second, third or even a fourth session. Once the stressor is removed, you will most likely never experience symptoms from the same substance again.
Does ATP address conditions other than intolerances & sensitivities?
Because ATP reprograms a cell’s response to its environment, ATP’s application is far-reaching. Hormonal imbalances such as hot flashes, PMS; sugar metabolism – hypoglycemia/diabetes; fat metabolism, thyroid imbalances are just a few issues which can be approached with ATP. In addition, our clinic will issue lab requisitions for various testing including standard blood cell counts, triglycerides, fasting blood sugar, thyroid hormones, hormonal saliva panels, etc. when necessary to accurately assess the patient’s health.
How do I know if I have an allergy or sensitivity?
It is often quite difficult to know if the symptoms you are experiencing are allergic reactions. There is a long list of symptoms that can be a result of eating a food, exposure to pollen, or a chemical. The list goes beyond itchy eyes, scratch throat, runny nose, stomach cramps, itchy skin etc.
Does my health insurance cover this?
Because you are under the care of a Naturopathic Physician your plan should cover the cost provided you have Naturopathic Medical coverage.
