Are you suffering from palpitations, chest discomfort, shortness of breath? Are you worried about spikes in your blood pressure?

Well, I want to tell you about a certain technique that works for a lot of my patients and that is keeping a food diary.

Now, this is not keeping a food diary 24/7. I think that’s a little bit much.

But what I want you to know is that when you experience symptoms such as palpitations, or atrial fibrillation, or skip beats, or high blood pressure -whatever your symptoms are, what did you eat for the meal before that? What did you do in the previous 24 hours? Previous couple meals?

Did you have alcohol? Did you have sugar? Did you have gluten?

Is there some kind of food or lifestyle thing that happened to you where you had sudden change in your symptoms or in your blood pressure or headaches or whatever.

So, you just want to write that stuff down.

Now, you can keep a diary about all the things you do during the day. That may be the best way, but I think the easiest way is to just march back in the previous 24 hours.

What did you do? Is there something new in your life, some new experience, some new food?

How can we find the cause of your symptoms? And the diary is the best way to do so.

So, keep that diary. Write everything down. You know, use a natural provider or natural doctor to help guide you to help interpret that information but obviously you can just take a look at it and see, “oh, every time you’ve had wheat, you had palpitations.” Or every time you had dairy, or corn, or soy, or whatever it may be the trigger for you, you’ll find it by keeping a food diary.
