Clinical Tip 112: Test yourself for hidden food allergies

One of the recommendations I make on a regular basis to Tahoma Clinic patients and to Nutrition & Healing readers is to have thorough allergy testing done. Over the years, I’ve found that hidden food allergies and sensitivities often play a major role in a person’s overall health–determining them and eliminating or desensitizing to the trigger foods almost always results in a significant improvement. But I know the idea of allergy testing puts unpleasant visions of being poked and prodded for hours on end into many people’s minds–not exactly an experience anyone would really be eager to have. If you’ve been hesitant to have clinical allergy screening done and want to be sure you really need it before you make an appointment, I have some good news: You might be able to do that just by taking your pulse.
