The Dangers of Drinking Coffee

Coffee inhibits natural brain opiates. Impairs the nervous system and kills the adrenal glands. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4844/Fotolia_60625573_Subscription_Monthly_M_thumb.jpg
Coffee, as we drink it today, originated in the 13th century in what is today known as Ethiopia. By the 16th century, coffee had spread to Egypt, Yemen, Persia, Turkey and northern Africa. From there, it went to Italy and the rest of Western Europe, as well as Indonesia and the Americas.


Types of coffee

Coffee traders decided to create code names, such as Java, Mocha, and cappuccino to protect the actual sources where the coffee beans were acquired. It just so happens that these names indicated the regions where the beans were grown. Java is an island in Indonesia. Mocha is a city in Yemen, Arabia. Cappuccino derives its name from the Italian city Capuchin. The word coffee derives from kaf, the Ethiopian name for coffee.


Physical effects

Coffee is a stimulant to the central nervous system. Drinking coffee inhibits the release of natural brain opiates, which make you feel good and counteracts pain. Women need all the natural brain opiates their bodies can hold, especially around their menstrual periods and not to mention childbirth. Coffee may rev you up for a while, but is sure to bring down as well.

Excessive consumption of coffee causes shaking and trembling of the hands due to nervousness. Coffee greatly impairs the nervous system. Coffee also harms the adrenal glands. It revs up these glands, but also brings them down. Anything that goes up and then down is taxing for the body.

Coffee contains the stimulant caffeine. Unlike bioactive caffeine found in green tea, black tea, yerba mate, guarana, and kola nut, the caffeine in coffee is considered dead. Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that is followed by a depressed phase involving exhaustion, nervousness, irritability, fatigue, and often headaches.

The volatile oil in caffeine called caffeol is an irritant to the lining of the stomach and causes poor digestion.

Caffeine constricts blood vessels of the brain and causes decreased flow of blood, which cuts the oxygen supply to the brain, resulting in a headache. It also increases your heartbeat 15% and makes your lungs work 13 times harder than normal. It greatly plays a role in fatigue as well.


Healthier Solutions

A great alternative to drinking coffee is Teeccino herbal coffee, made of roasted carob, barley, chicory root, figs, dates, orange peel and almonds. It is delicious and tastes just like coffee. You can find it at most health food stores such as Whole Foods Market.

Herbal teas such as guarana, kola nut, and yerba mate are also excellent alternatives to coffee and include bioactive caffeine, which is not deleterious to the body.

The herbs borage, basil, licorice, ginseng, astragalus, and fo ti are great for restoring the adrenal glands.

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.

    Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.

    A:

    Don't look for answers or solutions primarily from sources outside of the body. There are herbs, but first use your mind. Mental healing! will your healing into fruition. Good herbs that will assist include Gingko Biloba, Ginseng (all types), and Gotu Kola. Dherbs.com Brain Tuner, CNS, and Ethereal Bliss are also helpful for your condition.
