Boy I’ll tell you, this subject sure brings up a lot of distress for patients in my practice! By the end of this article you will be aware of the hidden dangers coffee may bring to your health.

First of all, I have seen so many conditions caused by drinking coffee, I know this because when I muscle test the person to see if coffee is distressing their body, their muscle goes weak. It’s amazing the things I find!

One example is a patient who was having great pain in their legs. Well, coffee showed up as the problem and when they stopped drinking coffee, it went away. Another one was arm pain and when they stopped drinking coffee, the arm pain went away. One more example is my father. He was drinking a lot of coffee years ago and his hand and feet would blister and ooze. And when he stopped drinking coffee, they totally healed up.

Why is this happening?

Now you may think how could coffee do all these things to you? Well let me tell you how. And if you want  more info on this subject read the book Poison With A Capital C by Agatha and Calvin Thrash M.D,.

The main reason coffee is so bad for you is because of a chemical called Methylxanthine. This chemical is believed to convert to uric acid in the body which causes Gout. Coffee drinkers often have higher uric acid but are not seen in a blood test. Somehow, the coffee drinkers blood test don’t give an accurate reading of this according to the book mentioned above. Other effects from the caffeine are an imperfect balance, racing of the heart, high pitched or abnormal pitch of the voice, insomnia, racing but disconnected thoughts, poor memory, fatigue, finger tremor, and sometimes unexplained dread or anxiety.

Some of these symptoms may linger. So if you are a coffee drinker, you may want to consider the hidden dangers of coffee before you drink another cup.
