Please bring 5-7 things you are curious how your body reacts to, but don't take those things internally that day (like supplements — if it's necessary medication, please do take it anyway). This could be medication, herbs, supplements, jewelry, bits of food (like a chunk of cheese), etc. The students will pulse test each other on these substances.
