How Your Body Develops an Allergic Reaction to Food

Here is how to test yourself at home for an allergic reaction to food. I’m also talking about food sensitivities or food intolerance.

Now, remember that a food allergy is something that is protein-based. Intolerance and sensitivities are something that you develop. What’s usual is that it’s from eating the same food all the time. Your body will develop a sensitivity to it.

Testing Your Food Allergies at Home

So, here’s how to test and find out what those foods are to help with any digestive issues that you’ve been having. It’s called the Coca Pulse. You’re going to sit down, relax, take your pulse for one minute. Then you’re going to put any food in your mouth that you think could be causing an allergic reaction. You’re going to hold that in your mouth for 30 seconds. Go ahead and take your pulse again for one minute. Now, if your beats go up any more than six beats or more, there’s a food intolerance, sensitivity or allergy there.

Here are steps to take after you find out which foods are allergens. What you’re going to do is take that food out of your diet for a while. Give your stomach time to heal. The gut lining needs time to heal before you can try to reintroduce that food again. So I hope that helps. Let me know how that goes for you. And if you’ve come up with any foods that are irritating your gut, I would love to hear about it. Talk to you soon.

For example, for many years she told herself she wasn’t smart enough to make it through school to be a nutritionist. She thought she couldn't do a fitness competition because she had kids (and no time). Our minds are powerful and Jen wants to help everyone break through that roadblock to achieve their personal health and fitness goals.
