AAT does really work. I stopped treatment a year ago without completing the testing and my condition worsened. A few weeks ago I began treatments again and have had major relief of nausea and pain from a hiatal hernia. I still have reflux from the taste of food into my mouth that is bitter and oily, irritates the tissue of the roof of my mouth, tongue and gums but that has lessened a little and I can now eat more foods. My intestinal tract seems to be "operating" normally and I am now regular! I will spend whatever it takes to get this condition under control--it has nearly ruined my life for the last 4 years.View Thread
I began having treatments a year ago but stopped before completing the full course of sensitivity testing. My symptoms worsened continually. I began treatment again a few weeks ago and have already had great relief. I have severe reflux of the taste of food into my mouth after eating. It is very difficult to deal with the burning and bitter, oily saliva which begins after the first bite and lasts until I go to sleep. I was experiencing nausea and pain from a hiatal hernia and that is completely relieved. The taste is still strong but not as intense as last month. Am hoping after completing treatment that the reflux will gradually dissipate. My Dr says this is caused by anxiety. Only natural to have anxiety build when every bite of food causes such discomfort--this began about 4 years ago and AAT has been the only beneficial treatment other than not eating!View Thread
