|DECAF NOT FREE|
Many people are surprised when I tell them that almost all decaffeinated beverages still have caffeine in them. This subject usually comes up while discussing obstacles in homeopathic care. I have found in my 15 years of practice that caffeine can antidote or negate the effects of a homeopathic remedy. One of the clearest instances of this occurring happened many years ago when I was practicing in Fort Collins, CO. One of my patients who had been responding very well to their homeopathic remedy reported that their symptoms were returning with a vengeance. After playing medical detective we found out that she had eaten some coffee ice cream at about the same time that her symptoms started to worsen. With a restriction on future coffee ice cream consumption and a redose of her remedy she was back on track getting better.Then of course there are the folks that I work with who have anxiety and heart palpitations. A combination of symptoms that can easily be treated homeopathically. Often they consume caffeine in several decaffeinated forms-soda, tea, coffee, etc. Which is similar to hitting your hand with a hammer over and over and going to the doctor for treatment of a sore hand-as opposed to just stopping the decaff.
