Our Story

A.R.T. Allergy Release Technique® inspires hope and empowers people with food allergies to live a full, free and fearless life without allergies.

About Our Founder

Amy Thieringer is CEO & Founder of A.R.T. Allergy Release Technique®, a holistic treatment for curing food allergies. Amy created A.R.T. in 2005 after her own son had a severe anaphylactic reaction to nuts. After doctors told her that strict avoidance of all nuts was the only option for her son, she embarked on her own journey, developing a successful process for curing multiple, severe food allergies.

Since Amy founded A.R.T., she has worked with hundreds of people to conquer their seemingly incurable food allergies and enable them to eat freely and live fully. Boston Children’s Hospital and Boston University have published a collaborative pilot study in The Journal of Alternative and Integrative Medicine on the A.R.T. process, which clinically validates the transformative results of Amy’s work.

Amy has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, The New York Times, Natural Practitioner’s Magazine, and Wellesley Weston Magazine. She is also featured in the book “The Other Side of Impossible,” by Susannah Meadows, featuring stories of people and their families who faced daunting medical challenges. Amy has been interviewed by CBS News, Food For Thought with Billy & Jenny and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt on SiriusXM, and on the podcasts Kids Eating Broccoli and I AM Healthy and Fit.
