Week 2 of my 6 week Detox Program – Caffeine Detox – How are you Surviving?!

6 Week Detox Program finishing with a 2/3 day juice fast – This is a gentle Naturopathic programme that will change your lifestyle and make you glow from the inside out.

So, how are you surviving without that Caffeine hit? It’s hard and I’ll be the first to admit there have been points this week where I have just wanted to get a Cappuccino, but I’ve stuck with it :). If  the latter half of the week has been easier, this is because Caffeine is leaving your system and if you are feeling a bit tired you have probably been relying on Caffeine for energy. If you have experienced any headaches, this is a sign that your body has been dependent on Caffeine. If you can over the weekend, sleep in for a while, relax and nap if needed to build your energy back up.

Here are a few more tips to help you stay off Caffeine:

Drink water
Drink at least 1-1.5 liters of purified water throughout the day. Staying hydrated will help prevent that caffeine withdrawal headache as well as flush toxins from your system.
Drink tea
Enjoy unlimited amounts of herbal tea as I said before there are hundreds of delicious blends to choose from, tantalize your taste buds!
Get moving
Get your body moving! Go for a walk, a jog or go to a Yoga class. Sweating will help to release the toxins from your system and exercise helps to release the endorphins that keep us upbeat and happy.
Grain alternatives
I spoke about these earlier in the week, there are several companies that make coffee alternatives made from barley, rye, malt and chicory. These taste very much like coffee and can be a fabulous alternative to coffee. However, if you are celiac or gluten sensitive, please avoid these.
Keep up the good work, you will feel great for it!
