Coffee often gets a bad reputation because of all of the sugar and additives that are mixed in with it. Companies like Starbucks welcome diabetes by selling espresso drowned in inane amounts of sugar. Their newest Frappuccino line contains 400 percent the daily recommended amount of sugar, which equates to 30 cubes of sugar per beverage!

Coffee also gets a bad reputation because of its natural caffeine content, but researchers are now discovering that this natural caffeine is actually helpful for stimulating the minds of older adults to prevent mild cognitive impairment. The researchers do caution that too much coffee can have the opposite effect, doubling one’s risk of memory decline.

The key is moderation.

Coffee is more than just a tasteful, enjoyable beverage. In moderation, it’s a mind-protective drink. It can also be used as a marinade and a rub to tenderise meat, and can even be used in place of pesticides to lure rodents into simple water traps. Organic coffee has also been used in cancer-healing protocols through enemas to stimulate bile flow and liver detoxification.

Moderate coffee consumption could prevent cognitive impairment in old age

In one study, 1,445 elderly people between the ages of 65 and 84 were asked questions about their health and their coffee consumption. The researchers found an interesting correlation: those who drank one or two cups of coffee each day reduced their risk of having mild cognitive impairment. Participants who did not drink coffee were more likely to have precursors to dementia and Alzheimer’s. The researchers assert that the caffeine in the coffee raises one’s alertness and attention, activating the brain and preventing memory decline.

The researchers stated, “Caffeine could in part compensate the cognitive decline in older individuals because of its effects on vigilance and attention, mainly in situations of reduced alertness.”

Surprisingly, the positive correlation went away for those who upped their coffee intake during the study. The study showed that increasing one’s coffee intake actually gave negative results, doubling the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment compared to those who reduced their coffee intake to one cup per day. Balance was the key.

Using coffee to reduce pesticides in the home

Coffee can also be used in a simple trap to kill unwanted roaches hiding in the shadows of the home. This trap can help homeowners reduce their use of toxic pesticides, which negatively affect hormones. To start, fill large glass jars halfway with water. Smaller cups filled with moistened coffee grinds should then be placed inside each jar and allowed to float there. The jars can then be placed against walls, baseboards or anywhere else that cockroaches are expected. The scent of the coffee lures the rodents into the jars. Once they dive in for the coffee scent, they will fall into the water and drown. When the jar is full of dead floating cockroaches, it can be dumped out and the process can be started over again.

Organic coffee enemas help cancer patients

Endoscope-monitored studies confirm that coffee increases bile output when it is used during an enema. When it is absorbed through the intestines, coffee’s natural choleretics increase the flow of toxin-rich bile from the gallbladder. The late Dr. Max Gerson pioneered research for coffee enemas as part of a nutrition-intense protocol to successfully treat cancer patients. He published his results in “A Cancer Therapy – Results of 50 Cases”.

Within minutes of a coffee enema, the bile flow increases, alkalising the small intestine and improving digestion. This helps clear the colon walls, removing stored up toxins, fermented sugars and rotting proteins.

In conclusion, coffee can be used in an enema to stimulate detoxification for healing purposes. Too much coffee can cause mild cognitive impairment, but just the right amount — about a cup a day) — can help the elderly reduce their risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
