Interpreting Your Pulse Record
If your pulse goes up noticeably after you get up from bed, it usually means you have a reaction to something like your toothpaste or toilet articles such as shaving lotion or make-up. Sometimes it can be newsprint off the morning paper.
There are also some basic rules that you can apply, although there may be exceptions to the rule:
1. If ingesting a frequently-eaten food causes no acceleration of your pulse (at least 6 beats above your normal maximum), that food can be tentatively considered not a problem for you. If ingesting it does cause acceleration of your pulse (30, 60, or 90 minutes after eating the food), it is likely you are allergic/sensitive to it and shouldn’t eat it.
2. If you take your pulse at least 14 times a day, and if your dally maximum pulse rate is constant (within one or two beats) for three days in succession, this indicates that all food-allergens/sensitivities have been avoided on those days.
3, If your daily maximum pulse-rate varies by more than two beats–for example, Monday 72, Tuesday 78, Wednesday 76, Thursday 71–you are certainly sensitive, provided there is no infection.
4. Pulse rates that are not more than 6 beats above the normal daily maximum should not be blamed on a recently eaten food, but on an inhalant or a recurring reaction.
5. If your minimum pulse rate does not regularly occur before rising, after the night’s rest, but at some other time in the day, this usually indicates sensitivity to the house-dust mites found in mattresses or pillows.
6. If your pulse-count taken standing is greater than that taken sitting, this is a positive indication of present allergic/intolerance tension.
Dr. Coca emphasized the importance of applying yourself to testing over a number of days in order to identify which foods are making your pulse faster than normal, Dr. Coca maintained that the method was a ‘roadmap to the fountain of youth’ and encouraged everyone to use it!
