Caffeine addicted but….love coffee? Yes, it’s a huge LOVE/HATE addiction. Caffeine will alter your liver and gallbladder’s ability to function normally. It is also highly ACIDIC. I have been witnessing this addiction in people for over 60 years. Coffee drinker’s trademarks are: Yellowing skin, dark spots on skin, dry, brittle nails and pre-mature aging and deep wrinkles on the face. Drinking coffee/caffeine also puts a huge strain on our nervous system, furthering our inability to feel relaxed. Caffeine is a real drug, with long standing withdrawls…..but there is an easy way OUT of this addiction. Here are our suggestions which many people have told us in the past really works and only takes 10 days!
#1. Upon arising, go on a 15 brisk minute WALK in the morning outside for 10 days.
#2. Make 16 ounces of fresh DARK BLACK GRAPE JUICE (Riber) are the best, and juice them with their ‘seeds’. Only dark grapes. This will give you a tremendous amount of instant energy.
#3. Don’t eat any other foods until lunchtime. This will keep your brain’s blood in your brain, instead of your stomach as it’s being called upon to digest heavier foods. *
#4. Drink lots of water throughout the day, at least 64 ounces of purified (preferably highly alkaline water).
#5. When you come home from work, make a soothing supergreen tonic. **
#6. You WILL encounter headaches. This will pass in 48 hours or less. Within 5 days, you will not encounter any more pain, but you will feel sluggish for another 7 days. But this sluggishness will diminish everyday you stay away from the sodas, black tea or coffee. Trust in this process!
Within 10 days, you will have overcome your addiction to caffeine and now you will well be on your way to becoming more and more attracted to fresh, organic, green juices, wheatgrass juices and living foods that will enhance your natural energy even more. Coffee WILL and DOES deaden your tastebuds, furthering the downhill addictions to more sugary, acidic foods, and also attracting you to alcohol to help you get ‘down’ from the highs caffeine takes you into.
*If you are sugar sensitive, you can substitute the Dark Grape Tonic with fresh Grapefruit Juice (peel the skin and leave lots of the white pulp). Add some fresh ginger root to this tonic (approximately 1/2 inch). Juice 2 grapefruits this way (preferably Ruby Red Grapefruit) and then add the ginger root in between juicing. If you don’t like Grapefruit (which is quite low in sugars), you can juice fresh Blueberries. These two fruits are low in sugars (glycemic index) unless you are diabetic. If you are diabetic, we suggest you consult your physician.
**Here’s my Supergreen Energy Tonic: (this can also be substituted instead of the Dark Grapes for breakfast, or you can juice the grapes one day, then the next day, use this tonic (below).
