About CBT

The Effectiveness of CBT Therapy
for Eliminating Allergic Reactions to Specific Foods

 

Study Results - Overall Effectiveness Rating: 84.6%

During the month of October, 2005, Dynamic Health conducted a survey of patients who had been treated with CBT therapy for their food allergies.

How the Study was Conducted
This study was conducted by contacting all of Dynamic Health’s 139 patients who had received CBT treatments for food allergies between June 24, 2003 and October 13, 2005. Each patient had received only one treatment for each specific food allergy. A minimum of two attempts were made to contact each patient, and 111 patients were contacted successfully.

During either a telephone or in-person interview, patients were asked whether or not CBT was effective in eliminating their allergic reaction to each specific food for which they had been treated. Among the 111 patients surveyed, a total of 198 allergies were treated (many patients having been treated for multiple allergies).

Treatment Results
For 16 of the 198 surveyed treatments, patients replied that they were uncertain whether or not their CBT treatment was effective. Accordingly, those 16 treatments were not included in the result set.

Of the resulting 182 food allergy treatments, patients replied that 156 CBT treatments were effective, and 28 treatments were ineffective.

According to the results of the study, CBT is 84.6% effective in eliminating allergic reactions to common foods (shown in the table to the right), with a statistical margin of error of 5.1% at a 90% confidence interval.
