Boost energy naturally bonus





“Coffee is known as a thief in Traditional Chinese Medicine meaning it takes more than it gives… that short energy high soon turns into the jitters and comes crashing down.”


You may feel an energy hit but it has a ‘diuretic’ effect which takes away hydration from the body, causing tiredness, it’s tough on the kidneys and depletes Jing (life force energy stored in the kidneys). If you’re feeling particularly fearful, anxious or stressed i would avoid coffee for sure.

Switch out your coffee for 30 days and see how it goes.

If you’re a big coffee drinker you may experience some mild withdrawal symptoms so take it easy. Listen to your body and drink lots of water.

1 tsp of ground Noffee

1/4 cup organic coconut milk

Make it

Boil the Noffee in a cafetière and add warmed, frothed coconut milk with an optional drizzle of maple syrup/local organic honey to taste if you find this ‘not coffee’ a little bitter at first.

#2 The Guayusa Switch Out 

If you’re a coffee addict and still want the caffeine but with a clean and sustained buzz this one’s for you.

“Guayusa tea is made from the leaves of a holly tree in the Amazon. It is caffeinated but gives a clean, stable energy boost without the spike and crash that you get with coffee”.

I was first introduced to this tea as part of a meditation as part of my training at Academy of Healing Nutrition . We drank mindfully and connected to the spirit of the plant medicine and were taken on a journey. I ended up meeting a monkey called ‘Rafiki’ in the jungle with a message to always remember to have fun. Presence, mindfulness, connection to source and intention are powerful.
