Cleanse with coffee?

If you want to get the best results with healing or weight loss, then the coffee has to go.
That is 100% the truth, because of coffee's effect on your adrenals.
In order to go into the deepest healing mode, you have to give your adrenals a break - not just from toxins, but from stimulants too.

This is a really hard one for me, as coffee and I have been "going steady" since I was 14 years old - to the point that everyone and I mean everyone knows that "Sherry needs her coffee". It's practically part of my identity. The only time that coffee and I ‘break up’ is during pregnancy (those days are long gone) and we only ever "take a break" when I go on long cleanses.

For me it's not even worth it to go off coffee during a short cleanse, because during the withdrawal period (3 weeks for me) my outlook on life turns to sepia, preceded by a headache that lasts for 3 days.
Coffee has always been a's the sound of the water boiling, the espresso machine pumping, it's the smell, it's the flavour, it's the ritual, it's nostalgia etc.
I am fully conscious of how I give my power away to coffee and it's on my list of things in life that I want to change. Not necessarily to give it up, but to become someone who can take it or leave it.

I don't like that it has so much power over me, and yet I am not prepared to fight that battle right now.

And so, the cleanse will happen.......with coffee.
The cleanse you'll do, is better than the cleanse you put off into the far future, because you don't want to give up your stimulants.
Believe me, there will never be a good time to do that, but there is always a way to make your vices healthier.
So for this cleanse, I will be drinking black coffee, coconut milk cold brew, and mate (I am not a fan of green tea, it actually gives me nausea and the jitters).

By making those simple shifts, I am cutting the dairy and bringing down the acidity.

And that's enough for this summer.

My body will show it's appreciation anyway.

Whatever your vice is, there's something you can do better too.

Even a half ass cleanse is better than no cleanse.

In the Delish Deep Cleanse, a program that I put together for myself and my clients, there are a ton of options for customizing to your preferences and circumstances.

You can even have raw chocolate sweetened with stevia, erythritol or monk fruit.

Unless your adrenals are tanked (or your gut is seriously inflammed), why would you even dream of giving up chocolate? There is no need to deprive yourself the pleasure of such a nutrient dense food!

You can customize the cleanse in any way that works for you. It doesn't have to be 21 days. Just start with 1, 3, 5 or 7 days etc. The only thing that matters is that you start.

The cleanse you WILL do, is better than the perfect cleanse you keep putting off! That's because stasis turns into decline. You have to actively regenerate and cultivate your health.

Cleansing and seasonal rejuvenation starts an upward spiral in your health and your life.

Your body is the house for your soul, so it must be prioritized as much for your soul's growth, as for your health.
