(And yes, we ARE talking about coffee—not wine or a luxe dessert!). From field to cup, the journey coffee takes to get to your table is complex and fraught with difficulties. It's frankly amazing that anyone, anywhere, can afford it!

How to Get Off Wheat and NOT Starve
How to Get Off Wheat is one in a series of short, solution-based PDF’s we’re creating to empower our clients to better deal with some of the most prevalent health challenges without drugs or, hopefully, surgical interventions. Healing naturally, affordably and effectively.
When people come to us at Cloud Forest Botanicals with persistent complaints and chronic, long-term illnesses, we generally tell them as part of our protocol that they should start by taking wheat and gluten out of their diet. It's as if you've told them that their favorite pet has just been accidentally taken to the taxidermist. No, actually, it's worse than that. They really do almost have a nervous break down.
I know. I understand. I did too. Apart from potatoes, bread was – and still is – one of my favorite foods. You don't grow up in an Anglo/Euro country or any part of the western world without loving bread. Ironically, it's bread into you from birth! (Ouch! Bad pun).
But if you're like me, sick and tired of having whatever it is that is constantly bugging you, something you can't fix it through the normal channels because you have already tried that, whether it's a small persistent skin issue or a serious auto-immune disease, then, like me, you are almost ready to try anything. Almost. Even if it means dealing with the "B" word.
MANYThis short booklet will help you understand the reasons for getting off bread (and all gluten products) and will help get you through it. We know, we've done it, and so have MANY of our clients.
