Simple Do-It-Yourself Test for Food Sensitivity

Simple Do-It-Yourself Test for Food Sensitivity

Have you ever wondered if you are allergic to one food or another? The Coca pulse test determines sensitivity and reactivity to foods. This test is different from what is measured by standard blood tests for food allergies. The Coca pulse test measures the reaction of the autonomic nervous system to the stress of a food. It detects functional changes.

Give yourself the Coca pulse test by following these directions:

Coca Pulse Test
Count the pulse for one full minute, eat a very small amount of a food, wait a couple of minutes, and then count the pulse again. If the pulse rises by more than four beats per minute, there is probably an “allergy” to that food.

Be aware that there is much more to allergies than reactions such as hives, swelling, or difficulty breathing. Those reactions are created by an overflow of antibodies, However, we may react to foods and chemicals in other ways that do not show up on conventionally designed tests. Be aware that it is difficult to heal an allergy without first cleaning up the intestines and changing the diet.
