    Coffee is a huge deal. You have to decrease it gradually, too, or risk pretty serious physical, mental and emotional pain.

    My stimulant of choice are B vitamins. They are somewhat addictive and can have adverse effects, too. I don't know what your take on vitamins is in general, and it has to be discussed with doctors, but they definitely clear out brain fog and help you wake up more rested.

    You are so right about the link between clean eating and body odor. We find that we smell very natural and pleasant without animal products and processed foods. The minute we add any of those back in, our body odor changes. Furthermore, because our diets are so clean, the minute I eat oatmeal or anything containing gluten, I bloat up and shortly afterward I get a dermatitis rash on my hands. Similarly, the preservative sulfur dioxide causes hives and swelling of my face and hands. Eating right is just so worth it!

    Taking extra B vitamins is a good idea. Like your husband I am addicted to coffee, well the caffeine. I wish him the best in continued good health!

      The practitioners at Oriental Health Solutions (OHS) have helped my family and many of my friends and acquaintances when no one else could. All of us tried conventional western medicine first and ultimately ended up at OHS for our solutions.

Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.
