COFFEE: Not for the Sick, and Unwise for the Healthy

Caffeine is a legal drug that causes great harm, and sometimes irreparable damage, to the hormonal and nervous systems.

Coffee is referred to as “addiction” for good reason.

Coffee has become a serious addiction to billions of people worldwide. This drink does have a unique aroma that many find it pleasing (although even some committed coffee aficionados admit that it smells better than it tastes). However, its chief appeal lies in its caffeine content.

Caffeine interferes with adrenal function by causing continual production of cortisol. This elevates the heart rate, raises blood pressure, and abnormally increases respiration. Excess cortisol also causes fat to gravitate to the belly and the neighboring internal organs.

Caffeine also influences blood sugar levels by having a “domino effect” not only on the adrenals but also on other organs and glands involved in sugar regulation.

coffee effects

On the contrary, many people feel that drinking coffee gives them a much-needed lift. But this stimulation is artificial, due to the temporary rise in blood sugar.

Once the blood sugar drops to dangerously low levels, the underlying fatigue is felt. Attempting to obtain more energy, the person drinks another cup – and then the cycle starts all over again.

Coffee and Pastries

It’s no accident that pastries, bread, rolls, cakes, and pies are the favorite accompaniment of coffee. But the high amounts of sugar and starch in these foods stress the pancreas even more. This is why many coffee drinkers gain weight. The metabolism-stimulating effect of coffee increases appetite and cravings for sugars and carbohydrates. Any glucose not utilized by the cells at a given time is stored as fat.

Kidney function is also affected. Normally, when urine passes through the kidneys to be filtered, the kidneys recycle materials that are still needed in the body. But coffee forces the kidneys to excrete vital calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and trace minerals — eventually creating deficiencies in those minerals.

insomnia

Caffeine prevents the pineal gland in the brain from producing melatonin, which is why many coffee drinkers have a hard time sleeping. Caffeine inhibits the enzymes used in the formation of memory, eventually causing loss of memory.

Some effects of caffeine are gender-specific. In women, it can aggravate or cause premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menopausal symptoms, and even breast cancer, as well as induce higher rates of miscarriage and infertility.

During pregnancy, caffeine crosses the placental barrier. Since fetuses do not have the ability to detoxify caffeine, babies born of women who drink as few as 2 cups a day tend to have lower birth weight and even more deformities such as cleft palate. If the mother nurses, she transmits caffeine and all other compounds in coffee to the baby through her breast milk.

In men, the irritating caffeine can aggravate prostate problems and urinary tract infections. Both men and women who drink coffee are more prone to osteoporosis.

Besides caffeine, coffee contains more than 208 acids. These make the body acidic as well, cause indigestion, and contribute to arthritis, rheumatism, and skin disorders.

The addictive quality of coffee is experienced by many users who try to quit. They experience headaches, elevated blood pressure, and often stomach problems. Nearly all of them become irritable.

Some people can drink coffee before bedtime, yet sleep like a baby. They may be among those for whom caffeine sensitivity is not an issue. Or, they may be in an advanced state of adrenal exhaustion. This means less resistance to stress and greater susceptibility to illness. If you are hoping that so-called decaffeinated coffee is the answer, be aware that it still contains 3% caffeine — which is enough to stress our system and cause damage.

More coffee, less water

Coffee also dehydrates the body. Many of the symptoms we call “illness” are the body’s response to chronic dehydration. Since coffee drinkers tend to swig less water, there is an enormous probability of becoming dehydrated.

How do you know if you’re consuming more coffee than your system can handle?

coffee and weight gainThe authors of Mastering Leptin write that, among other factors, “if caffeine raises blood pressure more than four points and contributes to weight gain around the middle, … then it can be assumed that caffeine intake is excessive. This is because excess sympathetic nerve stimulation causes a numbing effect on fat cells in the abdominal area leading to excess weight gain around the middle. In such situations, caffeine is making adrenaline resistance worse.”

“UAE consumes more coffee than anywhere else in Gulf”

(Source: The National, UAE; Published 

UAE residents consume an average of 3.5 kg of coffee and tea beverages each year, nearly twice as much as in any other GCC country, making it one of the fastest growing markets by volume for coffee in the world.

Ric Rhinehart, the executive director of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, announced the surprising figure at the global Speciality Coffee and Tea Convention, being held for the first time in Dubai. Mr. Rhinehart pointed to the cultural habit in the UAE of using coffee as the basis for meetings and business transactions.

How NAET can Help to Overcome Coffee Addiction

Caffeinated drinks are socially accepted all over the world. But these drinks are very addictive and damaging to the central nervous system for people with allergy. The degree of reaction is proportional to the degree of sensitivity or allergy.

Caffeine affects cardiac function and causes heart irregularities. This also causes irritability, nervousness, constipation, twitching of the eyelids, ringing in the ears, joint pains, skin problems like psoriasis, formation of benign tumors and cysts in the ovary, uterus and/or breast. It also causes insomnia and sleeps disturbances in most people with caffeine sensitivity.

People with caffeine sensitivity are usually sensitive to coffee and chocolate. Chocolate, coffee, and caffeine addiction can be tested by NTT (Nambudripad’s Testing techniques) and treated very effectively with NAET. When the allergy is gone, people usually lose the craving for the chocolate or coffee and they quit overusing them.

Allergy treatments also trigger many past troubled unresolved emotions like betrayal in love affairs, the memory of impolite treatments, mental abuse, sexual abuse, rapes. NAET specialists are well trained to look for emotional associations with caffeine and if found they can be significantly reduced.

The Basic Ten should be treated before treating for caffeine or coffee.
