Dr. Arthur F. Coca Diy Pulse Testing For Allergies
0

2 posts in this topic

Hello all!

Has anyone heard about Dr. Arthur F. Coca's Pulse test? Basically you record your pulse 30 minutes after eating and if it jumps more than 15 bbm over your baseline, you are having a reaction to what you ate. This may be helpful for people struggling to find foods that are bad news.

This is the Pulse Test from Dr. Arthur F. Coca 1956

http://www.soilandhe...020108.coca.pdf

" The Pulse-Dietary Technique

The technice of the new method of diagnosis is fairly simple,

and it can usually be applied without interruption of your daily

occupation.

If you have a proper interest in the experiment you should

begin by carefully recording your usual diet for a period of five

to seven days, and your (one minute) pulse counts in that period

as follows:

before rising

before retiring

just before each meal and

three times, at 30 minute intervals after each meal (fourteen

counts each day).

The "before rising" count is taken in the recumbent position.

For all the other counts the posture should be consistent; that is,

always sitting or always standing.

Interpretation

1) If the highest count is the same each day, and if it is not

over 84, you are most likely not allergic, and the range of your

pulse from the lowest count (usually before rising) to the highest

will be not more than 16 beats--probably much less. In this case

the record should be continued for two weeks, in which all usual

and unusual foods should be included in your diet.

2) A count greater than 84, points to "food-allergy."

3) If the maximal count varies more than two beats from day

to day; for example, Monday 72, Tuesday 78, Wednesday 76,

Thursday 71, you are certainly allergic, provided there is no

infection.

4) If you are allergic to only a few foods, and if by chance

none of these was eaten with two or more successive meals the

counts after those meals may be found to remain within a range

(from the lowest count) that can be considered normal, say 8 to

14 beats.

For example, if the lowest "before rising" counts are 60 to 62,

and if on several days the high counts are 80 to 90 but on one day

the count does not exceed 74, it is most likely that no food allergens

were eaten on that day in other words, you are not allergic to any

food that you ate. In this case you restrict your diet for another day

to that list, and thereafter add one new food each day until one of them

causes the pulse to beat faster, and is thus recognized as one of your

allergens--to be avoided thereafter; and so on. This is an easy case to solve.

5) Another unusual outcome occurs in those who are allergic

to no food whatever but only to tobacco. On the days when a

smoker does not smoke, his pulse may stay within a normal

range and the allergic symptoms vanish.

More frequently the "food-allergens" are common foods that

are eaten at every meal. These keep the pulse above normal or

make it erratic. In such case it is necessary to test the different

foods singly. To do this you eat the single foods in small quantity

at about one hour intervals. "

I don't recommend anyone eats something they know is bad to do this test !

I just found this information today because I had some ranch dressing today and had a pretty bad reaction (D and runny nose) two to three hours later. So I checked my Blood pressure.

I didn't check my blood pressure until four hours after and got 120/84 96 (SYS/DIA pulse). Only my pulse seemed high but I have always only paid attention to my sys/dia numbers. So about an hour and fifteen minutes later yet I'm starting to feel better, no gluten symtoms :) and I check it again and got 112/80 109. Fourty minutes later I have 117/89 118.

From http://www.mayoclini...rt-rate/AN01906

"A normal resting heart rate for adults ranges from 60 to 100 beats a minute"

Anyone have more info on average pulse rates? I have been sitting here relaxing in my chair since my first bp reading.

Before going gluten free for about six months (about a year ago) I had hypertension that I took medication for that averaged 145/95. I had to slowly stop taking it because of low blood pressure symtoms. (a sprinkle of salt on your tounge raises your bp). Since then My Doctor advised me to check my bp daily at home. It has never been over 127/85. I got myself a digital battery operated blood pressure montior for under $30. Since then I have been checking it and it stays around 115/80. I was told under 120 for me is ideal. But like I said I never paid attention to the pulse numbers but 85 seems like an average. In the last few months I have been not checking it because its always been good. But this test seems true to me so I am going to start this.

So this is getting looong, and I'm feeling ok but tired so its sleep time.

Hmmm my pulse is what my chiropractor says is the most stubburn of my measurements to go down. I was told before to check after meals for a change in pulse. Five years back was the last time I went to Culvers for a fish dinner. My pulse went from its usual 70 to 90 beats per minute. I do think there is something to this. I thank you for reminding me of it.

    • Weird things people have said
      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free
    • fructose malabsorption and gluten intolerant
      I don't have celiac but doctors or amazed I don't so they told me to fallow the gluten-free diet like I have it... any way I was wondering if one can have corn, corn starch if they have fructose malabsorption. I am so confused on what I can and can't have.. i have an appt next week hopefully with a dietitian... also can you have sugar free stuff since it's not sugar.. I'm reading online and I'm getting a bunch of mixed info on both. 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
