Topic: coffee and tea
Dear Anthony and/or other posters,
Since it seems like alot of you are knowlegable about natural health care, does anyone know what the holistic health community thinks of drinking coffee? Most of the publications i come across say that more or less, one cup a day is fine, but that if anything the caffeine can be bad esp for those with a predisposition to hypertensoin and heart problems.
I tend to drink alot of coffee, although i have cut back to one cup per day, but i keep wondering if maybe i should stop altogether.
i don't have heart trouble and am in my early thirties, and lead a healthier lifestyle than probably a good chunk of the population. But i wonder if caffiene and coffee is bad for your body in other ways? Does it get you out of balance?
is the neuro-stimulation bad for your body/mind?
I get the feeling that most of the research done on the effects of different foods on our bodies centers around weather or not there is any effect on the heart, and i'll agree the heart is important, but it seems like the rest of the body is ignored alot of the time.
thanks for tolerating my odd question,
