I am about to try the 30-day paleo diet suggested by Robb Wolf in his book, "The Paleo Solution". I have been very ill for some time now. Pain is my main issue (neurologic, muscular, and joint pain), but I have a wide variety of symptoms, including severe fatigue and digestive problems. I was recently diagnosed with a condition called Central Sensitivity Syndrome, which is an umbrella term for all health conditions caused by central nervous system hypersensitivity. I fit the mold for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Question #1: Are coffee and caffeine-containing teas allowed in the paleo diet?
Question #2: Given my health problems, would it be considered beneficial from a paleo perspective to omit these caffeine-containing drinks until my health improves (or longer)?
Thank you for your input!
