Is your craving for the most wonderful drink known to humankind out of control? Act on those urges; your body is talking to you! Take charge! This is the moment you’ve been waiting for, the “in tune with my body” moment. Go for it!
Coffee cravings are not to be ignored. Chocolate and Coffee lovers alike will verify cravings are serious messages from your body bewailing need. Something is out of sync and requires immediate attention.
Gourmet coffee resonates, “take me in and enjoy my wonderful flavor”. Fighting off those cravings is futile. Obey them with intention.
Our bodies demand particular nutrients found in coffee.
Flavonoids, antioxidants, and coffee oils actually are good for us. The main ingredient in most headache preparations is caffeine. Coffee is Medicinal!
Our bodies conceptualize wee bits of knowledge on a deeper level.
Oftentimes we are not consciously subscribed to the whole body’s powerful awareness mechanism. Tune in and tank up.
Laying aside our caffeine craving we will do well to take care of the body’s nutritional needs up front. Be mindful! Be in tune. Take your medicine and enjoy it.
Solution: Nip cravings in the bud. Grind your coffee beans fresh, and start with a clean pot. Good water is essential. If your water is nasty tasting, use bottled water.
Nature’s hint to mankind is roasting the coffee cherry to perfection and storing the coffee beans properly in a cool dry place like the pantry. Good roasters and suppliers, and connoisseurs know this.
Boundless evidence touts coffee nutrients promote good physical health. Research the nutritional properties of The Little Brown Bean. Coffee oils, flavonoids, and antioxidants roam free and rich in coffee beans. Fight disease naturally.
I once knew a local cardiologist who promoted 3 cups of coffee a day. I admired his advise since he was my doctor, and specialized in internal medicine as well as cardiology.
Doc stated that two cups of fresh brew in the morning and one cup in the afternoon were beneficial to good cardiac health. He also stated that in parts of the country where coffee drinking lulls at minimal consumption, specific types of cardiac disease show up more frequently. Amazing!
According to Neil Osterweil, Web MD’s Coffee And Your Health article, coffee drinkers are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and a reduced rate of dementia may be a side benefit. (I would suspect that part of the reason for a reduced rate of dementia may be coffee is a social drink and social circles of coffee drinkers keep current on the daily news with their buds). Osterweil also stated coffee drinkers have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes.
Frank Hu, MD, MPH, PhD, nutrition and epidemiology professor at the Harvard School of Public Health states, “There is certainly much more good news than bad news, in terms of coffee and health,”. According to Dr. Hu, decaffeinated coffee may also harbor the same healthful properties as caffeinated.
What more do we need to be actively involved in our own health care decisions? Three professional opinions, the desire to be in tune with our bodies, and a whopping craving that won’t go away.
Recent evidence manifests, decaffeinated coffee has as many healing properties sequestered as caffeinated. I would recommend Swiss Water Decaffeinated since it is a natural process using water instead of chemicals to process the beans for brew.
Smell the coffee beans, grind them fresh, smell the aroma of fresh brewed coffee, then suck a fresh cup down over a thirsty palate and enjoy! Coffee is good for you. If you can’t drink the “leaded”, drink “unleaded”.
Enjoy the pure pleasure of fresh ground coffee every day! Each day is a gift. Make it wonderful!
