I stopped drinking coffee for 30 days, and a few things happened. Make sure that you like this, share it with your friends and loved ones, and take this advice.
Here’s What Happened
So I stopped drinking coffee for 30 days just because I needed a break. I needed a detox from caffeine and from coffee. I’m one of those individuals in my liver, the detoxification pathways, phase one, phase two, I do not process caffeine very well, so I can only get away with say one cup per day. Some people can drink a pot or two pots a day and get away with it. I can barely make it through a cup of coffee. However, I do know the benefits of coffee, and of course, we all have for thousands of years. It gives us energy. It gives us focus. It helps us to achieve tasks in the morning, in the evening. It helps us to achieve tasks.
So I went off of coffee for 30 days, and the first thing that happened, and I anticipated this because I’ve recommended that patients go off coffee –
The first thing that happened was that withdrawal headache
That initial headache that occurs because you’re simply withdrawing from a chemical, caffeine. So my counterbalance to that was to take an herb called Eleutherococcus. Now, Eleutherococcus has been shown in studies and in my patients to help alleviate, or at least release and reduce, the chances of that withdrawal headache from caffeine. Eleutherococcus, it’s a type of ginseng.
The second thing I did was take an amino acid, all natural amino acid called L-theanine. Now, L-theanine is interesting. It increases alpha brain waves, so that means that it gives you energy, it gives you focus, but it’s calm energy, it’s calm focus.
And so the combination of Eleutherococcus and L-theanine for 30 days made a huge difference, and I was able to come off of caffeine quite easily. So I’ve actually worked with pharmacists and other researchers to develop a supplement called Meditation in a Bottle. It has these two ingredients, L-theanine and the Eleutherococcus in it, as well as other herbs.
It ends up being a really powerful formula to help with stress, to help with energy, to help with mood, to help with focus
