How Coffee Blesses Your Socks Off
Rather than the health-destroying, thyroid-thumping, all around bad guy of popular opinion, coffee is worth cheering about.
Never stomping on our body parts or causing chaos as it goes, coffee simply spreads sunshine and joy.
But it isn’t a magic bullet. Read on to learn the wonders of coffee-whilst remembering it works best as part of a team.
If you have vitamin or mineral deficiencies, for instance, you’re missing a major player on the team. Then coffee has to fill the nutritional gaps-as best it can-before getting to the good part of all it can do. And if the gaps are large, it may spend all its juice there, so you never get to the benefits of coffee’s power.
A very few people are allergic to coffee. That’s possible with anything you eat or drink, especially something so complex. Fortunately, most of us do just fine.
The magic of coffee
Let’s take a look-see at coffee’s magic.
For starters, it boosts all parts of the endocrine system-thyroid, adrenals, hypothalamus, pituitary, thymus, pancreas, pineal, etc.
I know, I know. Docs say, “No coffee for you!” to anybody with endocrine problems, but they’re wrong. It’s what they’re taught, but it’s wrong.
• For instance, your thyroid’s main job is producing energy to live on, and coffee supercharges this energy production. And not only do you feel better along the way, keeping the energy furnace all stoked up keeps you alive. Disease only happens when the energy dies.
• It gives the adrenals a new lease on life. Medicine insists coffee’s hard on the adrenals, but did you know there’s not one shred of research to back that up? Zip, zero, nada.
• It helps to bring estrogen, testosterone and progesterone into balance, specifically by increasing your hormone-balancing progesterone. And since out-of-control estrogen leads to prostate and/or breast cancer, you’ll want to tip the coffee cup several times a day.
• Drinking coffee dramatically lowers the risk of Type 2 diabetes, another endocrine disease. And helps treat diabetes that’s already shown up at your door.
• it prevents several types of cancer. Glioblastoma (a brain cancer) for instance. One study found that five cups a day reduce a man’s glioblastoma risk by 54%. Overall, it lowered the risk for all coffee drinkers by 40%.
• And then there’s the liver, a big-time endocrine player even though not officially a member of the team. Coffee improves liver performance, reduces liver cirrhosis by 80% (2 or more cups a day) and prevents liver cancer. Wise people work to keep their liver happy.
• It reduces the risk of endometrial cancer, too. Colon cancer, also. Probably all cancers, which all goes back to helping the thyroid create energy.
• Contrary to medical opinion, it protects against fibrocystic breast disease. Good vitamin/mineral levels carry extra importance here. Adding coffee helps.
• It prevents premature cell death, including nerve cells. While not interfering with normal cell turnover, coffee won’t let stress kill cells before their time.
• Given adequate vitamin/mineral support, coffee can prevent Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s.
• It lowers the risk of blood clots-and the risk of stroke or heart disease.
• It reduces feelings of depression and suicidal thoughts.
• Gallstones show up only half as frequently for coffee drinkers.
• And last, but not least in today’s world: Drinking coffee reduces the development of pain during computer work-in the neck, shoulders, forearms and wrists. As it turns out, coffee contains a pain-killer, a natural opiate, along with compounds-yet to be identified-that support nerve health.
Coffee is some good stuff!
God is good,
