Giving Up Coffee to Boost Your Fertility
This is not as simple as it may seem. First, coffee is part of my spiritual practice; I ALWAYS drink (make that “drank” ) coffee when I write. You can bet seven children’s novels, an adult novel, countless short stories and op-ed essays on that. Interestingly, I don’t need it or want it at any other time of the day, but in the morning, when I’m writing, nothing is nicer than a steaming cup of java.
I’ve heard rumors about coffee being bad for fertility, but I’ve heard conflicting things. People with Type A blood, for instance, do better with the acidity coffee provides. Some of my alternative health practitioners have said NO COFFEE while a few others said a cup a day won’t hurt.
So, I’ve been coffee-free for a week — no caffeine headache (as I wasn’t getting much at all.) Obviously not physically addicted, but psychologically?
I’ve gone with the green tea (sencha is a “juicy” tea that at least has some mouthfeel) for the last few days.
Maybe I’ll bite the bullet and go caffeine free. But what to drink? Those “coffee substitutes” look as appealing as soy cheese.
