Avoid coffee and tea. Many people find that they cannot have a bowel movement without their morning coffee. This is reasonable indication that coffee is an irritant to their digestive tract and bowels.

Amongst coffee’s other crimes is that it reduces the uptake of nutrients from the food we eat, imbalances blood sugar levels, taxes the adrenal stress response and loads the lives with toxins which have to be eliminated.

It is also a highly addictive substance. Coffee can contribute to bloating problems as well and is best avoided if you have that  problem.

There are many alternatives to coffee available, including different blends of chicory, barley, acorn and dandelion root, as well as fruit, herb and Red Bush teas. Sometimes the barley drinks can be a problem for those with a grain intolerance, and some of the drinks have quite a bit of lactose in them, which can be a problem for some.

However, if you pick carefully you can find a number of different options, one of which will probably suit you. These substitutes will not provide the temporary caffeine lift of real coffee and tea. but if you shift your thinking to that of having a nice tasting hot drink, they can be very satisfying.

Other alternatives are to squeeze some juice and top it up with boiling water, or to add boiling water to a slice of lemon with a little honey.

Sometimes it is just the action of switching on the kettle that is important. Some herbal and fruit teas have more bite than others, for instance lemon and ginger tea or mint tea. Cooled fruit teas make very refreshing drinks in the summertime. In interest of general health it is best to restrict yourself to three or four cups of weak tea a day, or to use decaffeinated tea.

    Substitutes will not provide the temporary caffeine lift of real coffee and tea ? Coffee can contribute if you have that problem.
