This month I am giving away over $950 worth of my favorite migraine-friendly products to promote the launch of my book The Migraine Relief Plan. Click here to learn how to enter the giveaway, which requires purchase of the book.
I’ll be highlighting some of the products each day as a way to thank each company for supporting my work.
Meet: Teeccino coffee alternative
Why it’s migraine-friendly:
- Many people find caffeine to be a powerful migraine trigger
- Gluten-free flavors without nuts or mocha are recommended for The Migraine Relief Plan
- Dandelion roots are highly nutritious
What they say about their product:
“The rich taste of coffee, the health benefits of herbal tea! Teeccino comes French Roast style (suitable for drip coffee makers)— intense deep coffee notes from roasted ramon seeds and chicory roots create a robust, focused body without any sweetness. And as tea bags, including 3 new flavors: Dandelion Turmeric, Dandelion Coconut, and Dandelion Red Chai. Created especially for the gluten-sensitive, organic roasted dandelion roots replace barley in Teeccino’s new Dandelion Herbal Coffees for the same delicious flavor and health benefits in every cup of Teeccino.
Why I recommend it:
If you have a coffee ritual, it’s tough to think about quitting it altogether. While in the short term you can self-treat migraine attacks with coffee, long-term you can be creating rebound headaches and turn an occasional problem into a chronic problem. Chicory root coffee has been served in the South for years (such as at Café du Monde in New Orleans). While this doesn’t taste exactly like coffee, it has a rich, full body that’s far more like coffee than herbal tea.
What you need to know:
The French Roast includes roasted barley as an ingredient, but according to the company the gluten doesn’t show up in the brewed liquid because it’s not water-soluble. They can’t officially certify it “gluten-free” but they do have laboratory tests to back this up. If you’re strictly celiac, I would avoid this flavor to be completely safe. Otherwise, brew away!
Where to buy:
Online at Teeccino.
