DR: Thereâs one more thing I wanted to ask. I finally got off coffee totally, a few months ago and I used Rajaâs Cup [an Ayurvedic herb tea] as a substitute to make the transition. I drink two cups a day. Is there any problem with that?
HS: None at all. It has very profound effects on the nervous system, and also it is very soothing to the stomach. You are doing just the right thing.
DR: Coffee is very widely used in our society. I have had patients who drink ten or twenty cups a day. Do you feel it is harmful to people?
HS: Overstimulation is harmful. Then you are working in high gear all the time, and you donât even realize it.
