nooooo because I don't wanna pay for such thingies and I am not prone for such  


but what is now a little funny, that I remarekd that when I put those cannelle-sorry...cinnamon sticks into the tea...I got a rush and my heart begun to go like crazy... I think the taste is wonderful but everytime a little after... at the very early beginning I didn't even remarked it...but now... I took two cups and bang...bang...bang...   I'lll gona stop with this I guess...here's the B-part which hogties me = no cinnamon....for a while ...but it's written as neutral...so don't understand... normaly in powderform no problem with this stuff ....hmmmmm

or does it refere to pré-menopsy's this might be,too  

but since the 13.03.06...nooooo café at all .....and I even don't miss it...that's the greatest thing here...wow...its' soo easy...to change with love ...its' so easy to change with love...
perhaps am I detoxifying now

Now, Isa,
Be careful you don't get a new addiction:  Did you say 2 liters of green tea you're drinking every day?

I read some where that coffee lowers your absorbtion of Iron and I think thats probably true for me. I eliminated my intake of coffee while I was building my iron stores up and now my iron is much better but Im still on the iron pills for another month in a half untill my next blood test. I think if you have an Iron problem you should totally cut out coffee.

Gee, thanks for the offer, Pat,   but,.....ummm, if I want to see a fine female, I'll just look in the mirror!  (Checkin' out how the BTD is making me younger!!)   yuk, yuk!

On the other hand, if I want to escape into my fantasies, I'll check out a Bruce Springsteen video.

Always a pleasure to talk with you, Pat.  

Back on the coffee/pseudo coffee topic, I have a thought for those of you who really want to avoid caffeine, but want a rich satisfying brew.  You know how Dr. D. recommends Genmaicha tea?  It's high quality green tea with toasted brown rice in it, my favorite tea, actually.  But I find that I can't drink more than a couple of cups a day, or the caffeine turns against me.
So I accidently came across an option when I visited the website for Great Eastern Sun.
http://www.great-eastern-sun.com/shopnew/haikuteas.html#GenmaiKukica
This is about the twigs of the tea plant, sold under the name of Kukicha, or Twig Tea.  It has a lot more caffeine than green tea, and WAY less than coffee.  (check out the caffeine chart)  They are roasted, which gives a nice rich flavor, and, still gives some of the beneficial benefits of green tea.

The tea I want to bring to your attention is Genmai Kukicha, which is roasted tea twigs with toasted rice.  You have to scroll down the page.  It's about a dozen listings down on their tea list.  It is something I plan to try.

This is confusing.
I have the impression that one reason why coffee is good for As is that it increases their stomach acid which in turn helps them absorb minerals better. But there is the information also circulating that coffee lowers absorption of iron.
Can anyone clear this one up?

if this were the case in As, Dr D would have already advised otherwise, don t you think?

Lola, this quote from Dr D. is mainly to help AB people sort out their dilemma.
I would appreciate if you could spell out the meaning of your answer to me (above) as I don't feel that the issue is any clearer yet.
Many thanks.
Jenny

Lola, I have read all of his books, (nine and counting),and have owned most of them until I lent them to people who have forgotten to give them back and have followed the coffee recommendation religiously for 3 years, but just recently on this and other threads there have been comments about coffee and mineral absorption which set a small cat among the pigeons.Jenny

Jenny, I also am very curious about this coffee/iron thing. I was told that tea will cut your iron absorption by 1/2. I quickly googled that and didn't find anything on THAT, but found some other stuff and at this point, forget what.      However, I have an O friend (and I realize you are an AB) who drinks lots of coffee and black tea and has problems w/ iron. It was so bad at one time, just a couple of years ago, that she had to have an iron transfusion.       So.................... ????
BUT on the other hand, she is also celiac, which can cause the same problem.  So it would be interesting to know just where HER problem lies. One, two or all 3.................
