      i never really thought about it that way, that we crave the things that are bad for us. i was always taught that if we were craving something it was because our bodies needed it.

      i know this is a terrible thing to share but i've been craving blueberry unfrosted poptarts for the past 2 weeks and I picked some up yesterday when I went shopping. I decided, for fun, to try this little test and I have to tell you the results were a bit scary to me.

      My pulse increased 42 BEATS in just 1 MINUTE within after eating the poptart.

      That was sitting down, I didn't even stand up first. 42 BEATS.

      I have a tendency to get nauseaus or light headed or just feel "off" after eating certain types of junk food, but this was a real eye opener as to the amount of stress this junk food puts on my own body.

      Thank you for sharing the test, very interesting!

      get checked for diabetes, high carbohydrate foods also increase pulse for diabetics, also blood sugar issues causes nausea and feeling off, so does thyroid.

      Just wondering where do you test the environmental allergens? I can't imagine wanting to put them in your mouth for testing. Is there a place on the body that is best for testing those?

      This is so interesting! I've been doing a modified version of this, where I take a food substance at the grocery store and hold it against my body. For things I am sensitive to, I notice that my pulse increases (like a can feel it as I stand there and sense my heart) when its a food I shouldn't have.

      You could likely do that with non-ingestible substances. Hold them to your chest and watch for pulse changes.

      I also do "show me a yes" and feel an internal falling forward sensation and "show me a no" and feel an internal falling backward sensation. Then I hold the substance and do the test asking internally for a yes or a no.

      It must look rather funny as I stand in the grocery aisle holding foods to my heart and falling slightly forwards and backwards but it has made a HUGE different for me in lowering my anxiety around what I eat. And it allows my body's wisdom to guide me on my various trips to the store, as I find my physiology changes slightly all the time. Sometimes I can handle dairy for instance, and sometimes I can't.

      I am taking homeopathic remedies which are supposed to help with dairy (Bovista giganta remedy) so I can track if that's having any effect with the pulse checks too.

      So happy to find a thread that validates this connection between pulse rate and the sensitivities!

      Wow. I wash my produce to an inch of its life because of all of the handling it gets between farm and my fridge, but yep. .

      .never pictured someone at the store holding vegetables against her body while rocking back and forth and presumably putting back the “no”s for the next customer to “enjoy”.

      Sounds more like POTS to me than food allergies. Check it out and it will to you too.
