Testing For Allergies Food Intolerance And Food Sensitivities

Allergy Intolerance Testing – A Simple Test
Rather than coping with poor health, you might want to help yourself by identifying the food or substance that might be causing problems. If you discover that you are eating foods that do not agree with you and eliminate them from your diet, your health may start to improve in many ways.

Below is a simplified test that Dr. Coca (a top allergist and professor) used to discover his patients dietary allergens. Dr. Coca found that with the identification and removal of allergens from an individuals diet, that their condition would improve and often be totally resolved.

Please note that this test can be helpful however it is intended as a guide. If you have any health concerns please consult with your doctor.

To ensure accurate identification you should not have exerted yourself within 30 minutes of the test and be in a calm state of mind.

First of all, locate your pulse in the neck or at the wrist

– Then, sitting comfortably in a chair, count your pulse for one minute

– Write the result down on a piece of paper

– Repeat twice more and take an average. Record the results carefully

– Now stand up and take your pulse again. Record the result

If when standing your pulse rate is greater than when sitting, you may have eaten, or be in the presence of something that does not agree with you.

If when standing your pulse rate increased by 10%, this is a strong indicator of allergens. (E.g. 70 b.p.m. increases to 77 b.p.m. or greater = a 10% increase)

This test can also be conducted before exposure to a suspected food allergen. Try it as an experiment.

Record your pulse rate while sitting down, then hold a food you suspect as being bad for you next to your chest and record your pulse again. If your pulse rate increases it may be a sign that the food you are holding is bad for you. If you eliminate that food from your diet and feel better, the test may have helped you.

There are many different ways to test for food allergies, this is just one of them. There are even ways to eliminate the negative reactions you may have from eating a food that is bad for you.
