I tread lightly discussing coffee because of course it’s the American way! But it’s my job to educate you with the truth so you can make informed decisions in your health. Because your health matters!

According to Dr. Michael Greger and his research, coffee may decrease the risk of Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Depression, Diabetes, Chronic Liver Disease, and Cancer.


But at what cost? While coffee may have some potential benefits, coffee may also worsen the following:


  • Adrenal Stress If you are like most people you have stress in your life. Drinking coffee “whips the horse”. This is a very serious health risk for your delicate adrenal glands. It can cause adrenal exhaustion, hormonal imbalances, chronic fatigue, and more.

  • Insomnia

  • Anxiety

  • High blood pressure

  • Heart arrhythmia

  • Kidney problems

  • High Cholesterol

  • High in pesticides

  • Acidic – acidosis feeds every type of disease

  • Dehydrating

  • Addictive – this in itself is a giant red flag!)



There are worse things you can put in your body than coffee, but coffee is not a healthy drink. There are clearly more health risks than health benefits.

I personally recommend limiting coffee to a few times a week if you’re healthy, and avoiding coffee completely if you have any diagnosed health conditions, fatigue, or excessive stress.



All the best to your health!
