There are many different types of coffee; from the most toxic instant coffee to the least toxic organic coffee made by the Swiss water de-caffeinated process. The following relates to all types of coffee, including decaffeinated.
Many people rely on coffee to regulate their bowel movements. When they eventually go off coffee, they find out they are chronically constipated. Coffee is a toxic irritant to the mucosal lining of the entire digestive tract and contributes to the formation of mucoid plaque; a sticky like substance that forms on the intestinal wall. Coffee adds to the build up of crystal and stone formation in the kidneys, liver and gall bladder. Coffee turns the blood acidic, and chronically dehydrates the whole body.
Coffee depletes the immune system and exhausts the adrenal glands. Coffee can exacerbate and in some individuals be the actual cause of anxiety and panic attacks. Coffee heats the whole system, especially the liver, which in turn can exacerbate anger, depression and mood swings. Coffee destroys essential minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C, calcium, iron, and magnesium. And because of this mineral leaching affect, can exacerbate smooth muscle pain such as in the case of period pain.
The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found that “There was a significant association between (drinking more) caffeinated coffee and decreasing bone mineral density at both the hip and the spine, independent of age, obesity, years since menopause, and the use of tobacco, alcohol, and calcium supplements [in women].”
Instant Coffee is Poisonous
To make instant coffee you must apply a blanching agent; such as bleach or chlorine and then nitrogen and hydrogen removal compounds. More chemicals and packing ‘glues’ are then added to make sure the molecules will form granule size parts. All roasted coffee contains acrylamide, a cancer-causing chemical also found in fried food.
Coffee may give you a quick fix of energy but ultimately it drains your body of vital force. One a day is too much and most decaf coffee contains even more toxins than normal coffee. Caffeine has been shown to decrease thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and therefore affects the thyroids capacity to function. One cup of coffee is enough to adversely affect a woman’s hormonal balance for a whole menstrual cycle.
One of my clients thought she had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) until she gave up coffee and all her symptoms, including intense abdominal cramping and diahorrea, disappeared immediately.
Green and also white teas are becoming popular in the western world for a reason; they are cancer preventing agents, rather than carcinogens. Green and white teas contain anti-oxidants and anti-oxidants are becoming prevalent in our society for their health giving and anti-ageing properties. The market is being saturated with anti-ageing products for internal use as well as external use as in beauty products. Give up coffee and watch the years fall off you, your hormones rebalance themselves naturally, and your mood swings even out. Pure water is the best anti-ageing product that nature has ever provided humanity.
PS Consume no more than 3 cups of green/white tea per day as this form of tea still contains tannins, and in excess may deplete the body of mineral stores.
