    Hi all!
    Reading a bit about gluten -free made me think about different food allergies.
    I was recently told a small process to try and discover if you have food sensitivities...
    Take your resting pulse rate...Take in the item in question on an empty stomach...wait a short period of time, then take your resting pulse again...if its gone up by a certain # of beats, then you have a sensitivity to that food item.

    Does this ring any bells out there? If so, do you the lengths of time and # of beats the pulse would have to rise to indicate a sensitivity?

    Also, if I were to test wheat or dairy, what would be the best/purest form of those items to try-so as not to have any other ingredients that I might be sensitive to.

    Hoping I get some replies...
