Why Caffeine Is Not Allowed During The Full Body Cleanse

no-coffee-for-you

Caffeine is a stimulant, picking you up when feel like your energy levels have been depleted. Instead of addressing the root cause of your low energy levels, people just keep feeding their bodies more and more caffeine to climb out of lethargy. The thing about habitual caffeine consumption is that it only leads to an increased intake to yield that same feeling of energy that you originally felt from a half-cup of coffee, for instance.

 

Every so often, it is beneficial to reset your caffeine tolerance. By this, we mean that those who started out feeling an ultra boost at one cup a day now need three or four cups to feel that same jolt. Consuming caffeine in excess can be dangerous because you end up relying on it to function. Similar to requiring drugs to feel a certain way or aid with sleep, the body becomes dependent on caffeine. According to researchers, caffeine has been deemed the most commonly used psychoactive substance in the world. Increasing your caffeine intake can lead to adrenal fatigue, impaired sleep, exhaustion, and lack of productivity.

 

For a lot of people, the idea of not consuming a cup of coffee in the morning seems like an absolute nightmare. The primary purpose of rebooting the body during a cleanse is to make life easier on the liver. When you drink a caffeinated beverage, the liver must metabolize it to safely remove caffeine’s compounds from the body. The more caffeine you drink, the harder your body has to work, possibly reducing its ability to function properly. THIS IS WHY WE DON’T ALLOW CAFFEINE DURING THE CLEANSE! That and it’s also a vice that isn’t necessary for daily function, especially when the body receives natural energy from the herbs and raw foods diet.

 

Is Coffee Healthy?

The long-standing debate is whether or not coffee is healthy. In large amounts, coffee can induce tremors, cause anxiety or insomnia, increase heart rate, and reduce the amount of calcium in the body. Organic coffee that you drink black, without sugars or creamers, can be acceptable to drink on occasion. Caffeine shots and energy drinks are terrible for you, end of story. Coffee does have some anti-inflammatory properties that may ease migraine symptoms and lower the risk of Parkinson’s disease motor deficits. These anti-inflammatory properties can work if you drink one cup or less per day.

 

How To Come Off Caffeine Before Your Cleanse:

Prior to beginning your cleanse, it is wise to wean yourself off caffeine so that your system isn’t thrown into shock. This especially applies to those of you who drink caffeine like it is life’s blood. Plan out your caffeine reduction period about one week before your cleanse starts. For the first couple days, we advise cutting your caffeine consumption in half. You should consume no more than one cup of coffee during the third and fourth day. For the remaining days before your cleanse, switch to green tea or decaf coffee.

 

If you don’t decide to decrease your caffeine consumption prior to starting your cleanse, that’s fine as well. Those who drink a lot of caffeine need to realize that quitting caffeine cold turkey can induce headaches, withdrawal symptoms, mood swings, or flu-like symptoms. Everyone is wired differently, meaning that those symptoms can happen to any caffeine consumer, no matter how much or how little they drink. The headaches often accompany those who are not staying sufficiently hydrated, so drink a lot of water throughout the day, especially during the first couple days of the cleanse.

 

Establish A Sleep Schedule:

The average person uses caffeine as a wake up tool, but people often feel tired because they don’t get the amount of sleep they need. One of the benefits of cleansing, to which most people can attest, is improved sleep. To the best of your abilities, try to go to bed and wake up at consistent times every day. You can vary those times on your days off, but only by an hour or two at the most. The goal is to get a consistent seven or eight hours per night.

 

Should I Drink Caffeine After My Cleanse?

This will obviously be a personal decision because you have experienced how you feel with and without caffeine in your system. What we can say is that you should consume no more than a half-cup of coffee per day in the several days following your cleanse. Exceeding this amount can result in vomiting, severe headaches, or stomach pain. If you decide to continue drinking coffee post-cleanse, avoid added sugars, syrups, artificial sweeteners, dairy products, and soy products. Stevia, raw agave syrup, or monk fruit sweetener are some of the best options to sweeten coffee.

 

Some of you may find that drinking water or freshly made smoothies/juices may provide you the energy that you need when you finish cleansing. That cup of Joe may be a distant memory that you don’t feel you need to revisit. That’s perfectly acceptable, healthy even. Each person will handle post-cleanse caffeine intake differently, and it is up to them to consume it wisely and not abuse it. Caffeine is a drug, one of the most popular and delicious ones in existence, so consume it responsibly in order to maintain healthy sleep, energy, stress levels, and adrenal health.

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: Can I drink coffee with caffeine while on 21day cleans?

    A: No, you cannot consume any kind of coffee or caffeine while cleansing. One of the main purposes of the cleanse, is to give your body a break from the things it's accustom to receiving; letting your body function on it's own. It's common for people to get proper sleep at night, have energy, but still have a need to consume coffee or some type of caffeine. It's important for your body to produce natural energy. You can consume herbal tea's while cleansing, Green Tea provides the most energy. The Dangers of Drinking Coffee - https://dherbs.com/news/4844/4669/The-Dangers-of-Drinking-Coffee/d,ai.html

    Q: Hello, I have recently become more sensitive to my body and I am trying to make better health choices. Thanks to your newsletter I've now stopped drinking coffee and switched to Yerba Matte. I have to say I do enjoy it very much. Only now am I going thru the withdrawals of caffeine. I first wanted to say thank you for that. My question is what herbs can I take that will help my memory both short term and long terms. My inability to recall something that happened, something I said, or even what I ate is becoming very frustrating. Also I am experiencing beginning symptoms of a kidney infection. Is the something I can take to help cleanse my body or help eliminate toxins that cause kidney infections? Please help with your suggestions. Thanks

    A:

    To improve memory I would suggest BRAIN TUNER Formula and BRAIN TUNER TEA consumed daily. For your kidney situation, consider performing the Full Body Detox Cleanse! Glad to hear of your like of herbal tea over coffee. Glad the newsletter is serving beneficial to you.

    Q: I started the Full Body Cleanse program on August 25th. Three days later, detox symptoms became so severe that I discontinued taking it on September 4th. However, I want to resume but feel that I need some assistance from you in terms of what might be the best way to do so in order that I can continue with my daily activities. Symptoms of most concern included: uncontrollable coughing, tightness in chest, increased blood pressure and severe headache. When I noted that the symptoms were increasing in intensity, I discontinued taking the Full Body Cleanse herbs,(after 10 days). 3 days after discontinuing the programs, the symptoms have subsided to a degree that I can continue with my daily activities. I want to resume the program but want to do so at a rate that I can function during the day and sleep at night without hours of intensive coughing. What suggestions do you have? About me: I am AA 60 Y.O. female who has been a raw vegan for the past 7 years. My doctor insists that I remain on the following medications: Levoxyl Tab 0.05 mg; Avapro 150mg; and Estradiol patch for thyroid condition, hypertension and menopause, respectively. Noteworthy, I discontinued taking all med 3 days prior to starting Full Body Cleanseand have not starting taking them again. My goal is to be free of such poisons.

    A:

    To continue the Full Body Cleanse, cut dosage from 5 capsules to 2-3 capsules. It is a very powerful cleanse. The symptoms you are experiencing is part of the healing crisis taking place. The herbal supplements are trying to counteract the toxicity in your body, and thus attempting to rid of them via one of your major eliminative channels.

    Q: First of all hello and thank you for the FULL BODY DETOX. I completed the full detox August 5, 08 and found it extremely beneficial, again, thank you. Please let me know your opinion regarding the "Abgone" Extra Strength pill that reportedly promotes pot belly loss (the one issue I continue to confront). I exercise, I do yoga and I jog four times weekly 3 miles. Never the less I still have a "pot belly". I contacted "Biotech Research" and was advised that this is an all natural product. The ingredients are said to be Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium Polynitic, Phofphatidylserine, Clabcaa, Dandelion Powder, 99% Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, The capsule is made of soybean, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and red dye #40. Please respond at your earliest convenience.

    A:

    That product ABGONE is crap due to the ingredients. No product is your solution, but the mind (thoughts, attitude), diet, lifestyle, etc. Stop worrying about the pot belly and focus on your desired state. Only see your results in your mind and you will attract the results on the material plane. Please read through some of our articles, beloved!

    Q: I have used many of your products - the full body cleanse, the female cleanse, and I completed the respiratory cleanse last month. I felt great during the cleanse; when I got off of it, I didn't feel that I was eliminating as easily or consistently. I had purchased the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion and started taking them together in the evenings, but I missed a few days due to travel. I noticed that I felt horrible during the days that I was taking it (and felt better when I was off of it).....my stomach felt bloated and cramped and I had headaches and low energy. I am wondering if the combination is too strong for me. Do you recommend taking only the Bowel Mover, or are you supposed to take both? Is it possible that I have a digestion problem? I also had purchased the Thyroid herbs. Is it okay to take those at the same time, or should I wait?

    A:

    Read our article HEALING CRISIS!

    Herbs don't cause any health problems. They help you to heal from them. You were experiencing healing crisis, which can be unpleasant; but your body doesn't care. it just wants to heal itself.

    I suggest you take these herbs at night right before you go to bed (which is the best time to do so anyway).

    And yes, you can take the Thyroid formula ... but take it in the morning!

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Unfortunately you cannot drink any caffeine's including coffee. The detox regimen is designed to help promote natural energy. You can still achieve a natural energy by the foods we eat such as ginger, berries, avocado and plenty more. You are allowed to consume herbal teas, but nothing else should be processed, cooked or heated.

    Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.

    A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.

    Q: Hello, I've been following the cleanse as it says in the book. My baby now refuses to drink from my breasts I’m so upset. He's been crying constantly for two days. I've been ill and vomiting constantly for the same amount of time. This is no coincidence. Today I've only drank water as the thought of anything else makes me feel ill. Every glass of water I've drank I've vomited. I feel so weak and sad The cleansing is just potent on your system. Take a day or two off and resume the cleanse again but only by taking 2-3 capsules at a time, not 5 at a time. Yes, others have experienced what you're experiencing. Follow the advice above and you'll be fine. What are you eating also? I would like to know. Thank you!

    A:

    Please look up VOMITTING in the "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING"and read the article "HEALING CRISIS" in our articles section. Also, babies don't receive toxins from breast milk but they will receive the benefits and cleansing effects of the herbs as well.

    Q: I'm a 38-year-old male who has been suffering with Atrial Fibrillation for 3 years. Up until the age of 35 I never had any real illness that had any caused for concern, and then out of the blue I have a heart related issue. My Doctor has never given me a cause of where this came from and all the research I've done on my own turns up the same. The answers the doctor gave (caffeine, alcohol, and so on) I've never really used any of those things excessively. My eating habits up until that time where not that great and I was about 100lbs over weight. I've lost 85lbs since, and also have giving up all meats. Also I had Cath. Ablation surgery for the A-Fib. It's been 3 months since surgery and I'm now off of the Coumadin they had me taking. I'm not sure if the surgery was a total success, I've not had an attack since New Year’s Day 2008. But I'm still not feeling back to my old self. I've been having some very weird feelings of nausea, tension, constipation, and tiredness, headaches, etc. When I do go to the doctor they tell me that everything looks fine and that I may be a bit stressed and suffering from anxiety. I'm writing to you in hopes that you may be able to guide me to the right path to healing and returning to living somewhat normal life again.

    A:

    WITHOUT A QUESTION THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU TO BEGIN YOUR NATURAL HEALING JOURNEY IS WITH THE Full Body Detox. AND BECAUSE YOU TOOK THE DANGEROUS “COUMADINâ€, YOU REALLY NEED TO CLEANSE YOUR BODY OUT. THIS CLEANSE WILL HELP YOUR HEART TO RECOVER AS WELL.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: Hello My name is Mark from Montreal. I have hepatitis C & cirrhosis that I got thru blood transfusions years ago. I take very good care of myself but I?m confused about coffee enemas. I?m seeing a biochemist and he tells me to stay away from coffee enemas. Can you please explain to me the benefits for me in taking coffee enemas? Could they be too strong for me and if not how many times a month should I do it?

    A:

    Coffee enemas are one of the best remedies for any liver disease. You may perform coffee enemies weekly (twice a week) to help your condition. Also, take 3 capsules of our Liver Formula 4 times a day and drink lemon water (water with lemon juice squeezed in it).

    If you really want to accelerate healing, perform our Full Body Cleanse and perform those enemas while doing the cleanse.

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: I have been on the Full Body Cleanse for 3 - 4 days now & I have noticed that I have more acid reflux symptoms. I want to continue with the program as I feel as it would help me to become much healthier. I have been to a homeopathic doctor & he indicated senna leaves are not the best thing for me to use. I may not have had the right grade senna leaves tablet at the time too. Any suggestions?

    A:

    All of our products are well-proportioned, so the senna leaves will not be a problem. The senna is well balanced for optimal benefit.

    Excess acid reflux means your body is adjusting to the cleanse. You are very acidic and the herbs are alkaline. Healing is taking place. Keep with your cleanse!

    Q: Hi, I am currently on the Anti-Viral Cleanse and I can feel that it is working. Mainly I am noticing I'm having dreams of past experiences which have emotional trauma which I have associated with having herpes. These are really intense and I know they are the herbs working as these are memories I have tried to repress for years. Is there anything you recommend to help shift this stored energy? I think I need help to move these emotions or the healing won't be complete. Also - I forgot to take the pills for an entire day and a half on the cleanse as I was delayed at a work conference. Will this break the entire cleanse and I need to start from the beginning again? I look forward to hearing from you, Emily Steckelbruck +61 413 391 064

    A:

    Sometimes your emotions does affect the healing process. You can try using some of the Elixirs to help clear out your emotions of the past like the Aura Cleansing Elixir or the Anti-Negative Thoughts Elixir. You can also try the Aromatherapy Inhalers. If it's still the same day you that you forget to take one of the formula's you can still take it at a later time.

    If you forget and it's the day after just continue on without it or add an extra day to the cleanse. Taking them out of order doesn't have an effect on your cleanse as long as you're still taking the supplements daily. The schedule can be adjusted according to you personal time, just be sure that the hours in between are the same as listed in the manual. It is significant to follow the regiment exactly.

    Q: I have 2 more days left on the Total Woman Cleanse. I also completed the Full Body Detox in January. I started my cycle a couple of days before starting the Total Womans Cleanse, which lasted approxy 5 days. When my cycle stopped, I began to experience spotting everyday (which I understand is apart of the cleansing process). However, my cycle started again and has lasted for 4 days now, and I experienced some clots and heavy bleeding. I've also been feeling fatigue, as a result of the continuous bleeding. I've had problems with my cycle for several years, and I'm really seeking help in resolving the issue(s). I've had a couple of DNCs, over the past few years which have come back okay (praise God), but I also have an enlarged uterus. I was thinking about ordering the Yoni Formula, Moon cycle, Female Tea, and liquid iron. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Don't be frustrated, Beloved! It will only block you! Consider ordering and reading our "Mental Science Manual" and "Love Manual" and APPLY the principles so as to help you remain positive, calm, and optimistic about your healing.

    Q: I would like to order the cleanse for women... my husband is doing the full body cleanse now... what do you recommend for me... ? I really need to work on my diet am vegetarian however, I feel like I truly face some of the same issues you faced during your conversion.. perhaps I need to consider going back to strictly vegan vegetables! I use to be very healthy but now I take meds for stomach pains.. etc... but I have implemented flaxseed oil into my diet .. .what is your view on flaxseed..? I found this article to very interesting that you wrote.. I have headaches from time to time also.

    A:

    We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse to help remedy the sypmtoms you are experiencing. A raw foods diet is recommended while on the cleanse, so you are on the right track. Flaxseed Oil is a great product to have in your diet, as it provides healthy fats.
