Allergies can be complex. There are hundreds of reactions and many people don’t associate their symptoms with the foods they eat. In addition, a reaction may occur up to 72 hours or longer after the exposure. In other words, food you consumed on Monday, may not elicit a symptom until Thursday. Here is a method to help discern if you are sensitive or allergic to something.
When you have sat down and relaxed before a meal take your pulse. The way to do this is to place two fingers from one hand firmly (not hard) on the wrist of the other hand. The pulse is best located just below the thumb on the thin part of the wrist. Count the number of beats for 1 minute. Write that number down. Take a bite of only one food, such a vegetable, fruit, milk, soda, coffee, meat, egg, etc. Check your pulse again. If the number is 10 points higher or more, you are most likely reacting to that food. Processed food will have a list of items that it contains, and it may be difficult to isolate which constituent you are reacting to including an additive or preservative that is contained with that food.
Tomorrow there is a free class I’m offering at my office at 6:00 to discuss many simple methods including this one, for determining allergies/sensitivities, deficiencies and conditions. I hope you can join us.
