I have stopped coffee because it is a bean. That is what is recommended for me. When I was drinking coffee, I drank it black and used a grind that is low acid and organic. If you find a coffee bistro that knows their coffee beans, they should be able to advise you what to buy.
I have had surprising benefits of not drinking coffee, such as mental stability, improved mood, and healthier teeth. However, after two months of being caffeine-free, my body still feels like it's healing because I'm really tired a lot of the time. I think I was really dependent on it, even just from 1-2 cups a day, and think I have burned out adrenals which I think are finally slowely healing which feel like it'll take months to happen. Anyone else?
Dr. O what about this new stuff on the market called “Choffy” from coco beans, is it safe for people with glutens problems do you know? People are drinking it in place of coffee. It was on the Dr. OZ show one day recently.
You have to remember that it is a legume. The major problem I see with legumes is that they have chemicals that inhibit digestion, and promote autoimmune disease. I am going to write on this very soon so stay tuned.
One more thing I was having about 3 times a week (6 oz cups) that will now be cut. I never thought about coffee being a legume and I'm finding via Internet research that there is alot of disagreement on the issue.
