Coffee... we love our morning brew. But some of us are sensitive to it. How do you know? If you are experiencing GERD (acid reflux), urinary issues, skin outbreaks, sleep problems or other issues, try going a month (yes, a WHOLE month!) without coffee and see if the condition improves. Of course, consult with a qualified healthcare provider (preferably a licensed acupuncturist) to address the problem at the root. Ready to get started?
