Coffee! The Good, the Bad and the Ayurvedic Perspective

An interesting post in the Elephant Journal. 

I have to admit to being a java junkie.   I love a steaming, hot, cuppa joe in the morning, and my day just can't seem to start without it.   So, needless to say, I'm thrilled to learn about all the "good" stuff that my coffee habit can lead to.

But, there are also the downsides to being a java junkie as well, and I have to take note of that as well.

As is the case with anything, moderation is best.   So, I limit myself to 2 cups of coffee a day, and several times a year I go on "coffee fasts" where I wean myself off coffee for a week or two (usually in conjunction with a detox.)

Should I swear off coffee entirely?   Probably not, because there do seem to some health benefits, but I don't want to be drinking a dozen espressos daily either. 


  1. I think moderation would be best.
    if you can't drink it in moderation, then it's probably best that you don't drink coffee at all.
