what to drink

I had to stop drinking coffee.

I learned that even though red clover tea is a blood cleaner, it also made me itch.

Green tea and black tea have caffeine, as does coffee.  It could be that the caffeine in the coffee was making me itch.

I stopped drinking kombucha.  Kombucha is made from vinegar, which might be one of the things that make me itch.

What I’ve discovered that does not make me itch:

Water.  I don’t usually drink enough water, so I have one of those gallon sized sun tea jars; I fill it up with water and try to drink it all during the day.

Organic peppermint tea.  I learned that I need to steep the teabag for no longer than about 3 minutes.

Organic fruit juice, mixed 50/50 with water.

Coconut water, flavored coconut water.

Alo is a brand of aloe vera juice and other fruit flavors.  My favorite is the mango variety.

Carbonated mineral waters like Perrier or San Pellegrino.
