A while back I quit drinking coffee . It was hard but it was something I had to do and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever took in my life along with quitting smoking 9 years ago. I must admit it was very hard the first days; I was sleepy, grumpy and the headaches were very unpleasant but after the second week I was free! More money in my pocket meant more money to buy kava!
Coffee is such a big part of our Canadian culture but it is not that good for us despite all the hype and studies about it. A lot of prescriptions are given in doctor’s offices while coffee is dismissed and overlooked as a main cause of many troubles: insomnia, anxiety, head aches, nausea, and even psychosis. A lot of people don’t tolerate caffeine well and attribute their anxiety problems to other factors because they don’t drink that much coffee. Black tea, green tea and chocolate also contain some amounts of caffeine and therefore should be avoided by people with anxiety troubles.
I found that roasted dandelion tea was the best caffeine free alternative to my morning coffee: I don’t even miss it anymore.
It has the same bitter after taste without the caffeine and I like to drink it black. Morning before breakfast is really the best time to drink it because it increases the bile flow. Lots of nutrients need the help of bile to be absorbed and so that is a good thing.
Dandelion root tea has many other benefits; some claim it clears their acne others it keeps their cancer at bay.
You should really try and see for yourself!
