I drank coffee for many years. I put the puzzle pieces together figuring out drinking it gave me certain symptoms. One was heart palpitations throughout the day. It also seemed to make me tired later on. It would change my moods. I also believe it made me paranoid. Since I’ve been drinking Japanese green tea, I experience none of this.
‘I have read that coffee has about a thousand different elements researchers don’t yet understand’
I never could enjoy the taste of coffee black. I always had to have sugar and cream in it or I couldn’t drink it. Because of what I learned about sugar and dairy, I no longer drink coffee. I used to drink Starbucks®, so if you have you probably know how strong they make it.
‘It always struck me as an amazing marketing feat to be able to charge $5 and up per cup when it actually costs them pennies for the ingredients to make it’
Reasons why I don’t drink coffee anymore…
- Heart palpitations
- If you just have to have your daily coffee get organic
- Why? Non-organic coffee beans are known to be highly sprayed with pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides
- Furthermore, they most often use synthetic fertilizers
- I understand only slightly more than 1% of Starbucks® coffee is organic
‘If you want to break the coffee habit I don’t know of any way better than drinking Japanese green tea’
I do still love it although I don’t drink it. How does one live without coffee? Ask yourself if coffee is loving you back? I don’t think it did enough for me.
‘Coffee consumption seems to increase the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) ’
I believe I have had RA symptoms. Furthermore, it is said coffee drinking may cause one to develop a leaky gut because it damages the mucosal barrier.
