Greetings. Eric Bakker back to you again.
Naturopath from New Zealand. Thanks for tuning in. I hope you’re watching some of my videos
and getting some good information out of them. I’m going to talk about coffee today. A nice
cup of coffee. I’m just reading a Candida website, quite
a well-known one, here on my other computer. Do not drink coffee. Caffeine can cause your
blood sugar to rise, weakens your adrenals, and can impair your immune system. Coffee
contains molds. Even decaf coffee should be avoided because they contain residual levels
of caffeine. Well, I’ll drink to that. What a load of crap! There’s nothing wrong with
drinking coffee if you use your head. I have got no problem with most people drinking
one or two cups of coffee a day. But I’ll tell you the best time to drink coffee and
that’s in the morning. Why would that be? Why not drink it in the afternoon? Why not
drink it before bed? Why not drink pots of coffee all day? Well, coffee does contain
caffeine. There is nothing wrong with giving yourself a boost in the morning when your
cortisol levels are naturally high. Early coffee consumption is actually beneficial
for the body. It’s quite good to drink coffee. Not lots and lots of cups of coffee.
People who tell you to strictly avoid this and strictly avoid that. To me, they’re like
religious fanatics. Don’t listen to this crap. Coffee contains mold. For Christ sake, everything
contains mold. Probably sniffing my mobile phone contains mold. Don’t get fanatical about
things like this. Drinking coffee or tea using a sensible approach is perfectly fine because
it makes you feel good and it gives you a lift. However, drinking coffee throughout
the day because you’ve got weak adrenals is a sign often of adrenal fatigue.
I’ve been looking at adrenal fatigue now probably for about 10 years; I’ve studied it quite
well. I find that even people with severe burnout and fatigue can recover perfectly
okay if they keep their coffee consumption right down to a minimum and enjoy that one
nice cup of coffee in the morning. I personally believe the best time to drink coffee is before
11 o’clock in the morning. That’s a really good time to drink it. One cup maybe two,
but you don’t really want to go much beyond that.
Drink lemon grass tea or herb teas or green teas, things like that, if you’re going to
drink beverages continually. But this nonsense about “thou shalt not do this, thou shalt
not do that,” just be careful that you don’t fall into this religious fanatical trap where
you limit all caffeine in your life because you think it’ll make you better. I don’t think
it makes much difference at all. In fact, the more you limit these things and the less
you enjoy what you’re eating and drinking, the more prone you are to having outbreaks
of wanting lots of chocolate and lots of sweet foods and lots of alcohol. This creates a
binging situation for you. Allowing you small amounts of coffee continually
over a long period of time is generally okay. Don’t put sugar in your coffee. I just tend
to drink black coffee, so you need to be very cautious about you actually add into the coffee.
But don’t fall for the hype where you need to have strict pattern of avoidance because
it’s not going to make a lot of difference. Click on the link below for your free report
