Warning Dangerous To Your Health
QUIT COFFEE? NUTS TO THAT!
By Anita Sands Hernandez
In the good old USA, the most technocrat, wired, pacey, materialist nation in the world -- a half billion cups of coffee are drunk daily. That's great for StarBucks and Brazil [and other coffee producing nations & companies] but is it so great for us?
Caffeine, the active ingredient, a poisonous alkaloid, (the word used for nature's arsenal of poisons) causes kidney stones and kidney damage, (so that proteins don't get eliminated and body blows up with edema and we think that's just 'faceless' old age!)
Wait, get a notebook, because there are more than a dozen diseases on Killer Koffee's list. Brazil Brew causes adrenal fatigue, (hence drying up all hormones in the body, promoting aging). It causes irreversible heart disease with arrhythmias, tachycardia, later requiring pacemakers. It causes birth defects so no pregnant woman should drink it. It causes hypertension, strokes, higher cholesterol & triglyceride blood levels. For women, the devil bean gives higher incidence of uterine and breast fibroids and breast tumors.
For any who don't succumb of the above diseases, wait! There are still more choices. Coffee is a carcinogen. It's a BURNT bean. Might as well brew beverages out of boiled barbecue grills. That black stuff is scorch-n-torch. BURNT! The entire inner GI tract is exposed to cancer --from guggle to zatch (as James Thurber called the region.) Coffee accelerates hypoglycemia into diabetes, and for many--causes ulcers as it is acidic. It can also burn the stomach lining so badly that one stops making stomach acid, has burps all the time due to lack of stomach acid.
Then undigested proteins ferment, insulting the kidneys which fail. Wonder why this tidal wave of dialysis in America? Blame it on the Devil Bean. Last, java causes raging insomnia. Even a dose in the AM is still with us at midnight, mixed into the food deep in our gut. You will trick your body clock into staying awake for 18 hours, which is abnormal. Then you will only be able to sleep six hours due to the residues of caffeine in your blood the next morning. You come awake without sufficient sleep, feeling draggy but unable to get back to sleep due to caffeine in your colon. Within a few months of this, there is permanent nervous system damage, lowered I.Q.
Here's one more. Caffeine causes hardening of the arteries in the brain, low brain circulation and is suspected of causing Alzheimer's by one holistic healer I know.) But we're not finished. Coffee is a diuretic, (although Tea is worse) causing excretion of the body's minerals and vitamins through the bladder. This ages our skeletons prematurely giving dowager's hump, curved fingers, dissolving bones, osteoporosis, hip replacement. Your urine is washing away calcium, magnesium, trace minerals, your BONES ---your very SKELETON is dissolving and departing thru your BLADDER. The Pacific Ocean is drinking you up waaay earlier than was its scheduled appointment!
Worse, black brew is attracted to the pancreas where it causes cancer. Holistic healers know this as they read irises of the eye. Every syndrome leaves its mark on the iris. That black spot at the 7 o clock portion of the right eye, (meaning on the right side of your body, close to pupil, 7 o clock position if it were a clock face IS the pancreas. (Read "Iridology Simplified" a paperback book of hundreds of color plates, by Bernard Jensen, 3$ all health food stores.)
Yep, it adds up to the fact Coffee is truly the Black Death. There's not a disease it can't cause, except measles. But don't worry--quitting Coffee is easy. We've all done it ... as Mark Twain says, --- thousands of times! The question is how can we do it, once and for all? Holistic Healers feel that a high power diet makes the withdrawal period easy. There can be actual headache from a sudden quit, but not the slow quit. For the sensual longings for coffee, the starter kit for El Quitto Grande is Columbian De-caf which tastes just as good as the real stuff. Unless you use steam or water distilled DECAF you are getting a poisonous carcinogen from chemical solvents used to remove caffeine so switch to water-processed decaf.
Then, for that MENTALLY PHYSICALLY SLUGGISH feeling you get during transition period, use herbal stimulants in capsules, mixtures you get from your health food store to jazz yourself up: Their names tell you what they do: "Mental Edge" "Perfect Energy," 'Brain Energizer'. These usually contain Gingko, Glutamine, Ginseng, Gotu Kola and hit the G spot that coffee used to reach. I also would add bladderwrack or kelp. After one is cured of the caffeine addiction, one might take these energizer pills on days when one really must move, not all the time!
If you want benign caffeine, switch to Yerba Mate tea (a smooth, mild caffeine) or green tea which has the upside of protective anti-oxidants. Even a little bit of caffeine in your bloodstream affects your sleep adversely and is diuretic, hence causes excretion of the body's minerals. Few people have given thought to the insidious way caffeine can affect sleep, even 12 hours after it is ingested. Caffeine mixes with the food in your digestive tract which isn't eliminated until the morning of the day after it's eaten. Even if you have caffeine Friday morning, 19 hours later, Saturday at dawn, while you're trying to get your last three or four hours of sleep, the ones that count, Friday's caffeine dose has finally reached your lower bowel where most absorption is taking place, giving a FULL jolt of caffeine. You wake with a CLENCH, look at the clock and realize you haven't had a full eight. You try to go back to sleep but your brain is going, clicking away, stimulated by the last and final jolt of caffeine absorption. Unless you do mantra to give the brain something benign to chew on, you're likely to toss and turn and wake up too soon. But this isn't only Saturday morning, it's Sunday, Monday and so on.
You have no idea how long you could really sleep every night if it weren't for the caffeine dregs in your bowel. To find out what delicious sleep is---- quit the Devil Bean.
Your best bet to experience the delight of body balance is to quit this alkaloid entirely, even quitting black/green tea and caffeine bearing cokes/ sodas, and chocolate ALL of which are full of similar, stimulant alkaloids. Any good article on Caffeine would also have to teach people how to get energy out of GREEN LIQUIDS freshly extracted from living plants by a special vegetable Juicer.
(29$ at Wal-Mart). Vegetable Juice is rich in iron, nitrogen, protein, oxygen --- hence an exact analogue of blood. I'd call it "GREEN BLOOD."
Our genetic cousins, the Gorillas, are green -gorgers, munching their weight in leaves daily. Don't eat the cow, eat what the cow eats. Get a carrot juicer at Wal-Mart or your local discount house so that your liquids can be the essence of natural fruits, vegetables and leaves as found in nature, which are totally vitality-enhancing to essence-starved modern man. Next get the vital power of life is found in raw seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and in SPROUTS. These are the proteins we need, loaded with unsaturated oils to clean our veins of plaque. Loaded with minerals. There are many kinds at health food store which you can turn into vegeburgers at home. Or buy mung beans, and sprout them at home. Make lentil sprouts, sunflower and soy bean. Radish seed sprouts are the most tasty of all. I grow radishes just for their unsprayed, untreated seeds, unlike those in Burpee packages. And word's out that broccoli seed sprouts have hundreds of times more of that cancer-banishing element than even cooked broccoli. But before you can FEEL the magic energy live foods can give, you have to totally kick the big C. C-drinkers tend to like the next letter of the alphabet, D-nuts and not REAL nuts. Nothing like a pastry or pie to go with that big cup of java, huh? So don't let a C in the house or your health will waltz out down the sewer pipes into the ocean.
