The term allergy was coined by the Viennese pediatrician Clemens for Pirket back in 1906. Doctor Clemens noted that the physical effects of his patients are associated with external allergens like dust, pollen dust, certain foods and others.
A growing number of people are not aware but have problems with allergies.
Some of the following conditions are often caused by food allergy including obesity, fatigue, dizziness, high blood pressure, asthma, constipation, depression, dizziness etc.
There are complications and expensive tests on food allergens, but before you decide to do such a test, try a simple homemade allergy-test.
You can test food and drink using this home test. During the test you need to be relaxed and completely healthy without infections, colds and other health problems.
Several hours before the test you must not eat. This is why it is best to do the test in the morning before you have your breakfast or coffee. For the test you will need non digital watch and a mouthful of food that you suspect that you are allergic to. You need to sit back and completely relax.
How to conduct the test
Sit still for 5 minutes and then measure your pulse for 60 seconds. It is best to measure the pulse of the wrist. After you measure the pulse, type the correct value of the measured pulse. Completely relax again, hibernate for 5 minutes and take a small bite of food that you want to test. Hold the bite in your mouth and chew a little in order to feel the food. After 60 seconds when you feel the food good, again measure the pulse for 60 seconds. The food must be in your mouth all the time. Make sure not to use any physical strength while doing this and everything you need should be at hand. If you stand up or to move sharply, it will affect your heart and thus the results will be inaccurate. When you measure the pulse with food in your mouth, spit the food and rinse your mouth with water. Compare the results before and after the measurement. If the pulse beats have increased by 5 or more beats, we conclude that you are potentially allergic to that food. The foods you test must not to be swallowed.
You can conduct the testing with other foods. Note the results and store them, and repeat the tests in the coming days with the same kind of food. Compare the results from previous tests and if you notice that in two or more occasions your body responds with increased heart rate, it is likely that you are allergic to that food.
While testing, make sure there are no phones anywhere near you. Also, children that might disturb you are “not allowed” in the room with you because it can affect the pulse and therefore the final results.
If you are a smoker, before you do the test do not smoke for at least 2 hours, because smoking increases heart rate to 10 beats per minute.
