Discovering Classes of Triggers
By Jim Notto
My second revelation resulted from the trigger log I had been creating. When I reviewed those times that acid reflux flared up I realized that food was not my only trigger, and more importantly I realized I could group all my triggers into 3 distinct classes. This was important to me because I had quite a list of triggers assembled. By grouping them into related classes, I could focus on a whole class of triggers rather than on dozens of individual items.
The three classes of triggers I discovered are trigger foods, behavioral triggers and trigger states.
