How to Manually Check Your Pulse

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Vivamus leo ante, consectetur sit amet vulputate vel, dapibus sit amet lectus.

These instructions for taking your pulse are part of the Bio Body Weight and Wellness Fast Track Ten DIY Pulse Test, to help you determine food sensitivities based on elevated pulse rates after eating certain types of food. If you don't already have a copy of the pulse test, you can download it HERE.

Taking your pulse will give you your heart rate, which is the number of times your heart beats in one minute. You can find your pulse on your wrist, neck, elbow or even the top of your foot. The easiest place to check your pulse is your wrist or neck.

How can I take my own pulse?

  1. Turn one arm so your palm is facing up.
  2. Place the middle three fingers of your other hand in the upper groove of your upturned wrist, below where your thumb connects to your wrist.
  3. Press firmly. You should feel a subtle pulsing (beating or throbbing) sensation. If you can’t feel anything, apply more pressure with the tips of your fingers.
  4. Count each pulse you feel for 60 seconds, using a timer on your phone
  5. This number represents your heart rate per minute.

The steps to finding your pulse on your neck are slightly different:

  1. Place your index finger (next to your thumb) and middle finger on the side of your neck. They should go in the groove under your jaw and next to your windpipe.
  2. Press firmly until you feel a pulse. If you can’t feel it, move your fingers around slightly and increase pressure until you do.
  3. Count the pulses for 30 seconds (using a clock or stopwatch).
