Morning Coffee

Just enjoying my morning coffee and contemplating coffee addiction! In homeopathy, here are two significant remedies which can be used to anti-dote negative physiological effects of coffee. One of these remedies is derived from the original substance coffee itself : Coffea 30c.

Take Coffea 30c if you have drunk a cup of strong coffee later on in the day or simply drunk too much coffee.

Signs and symptoms are:
  • unusual sensitivity to noise (background noise disturbs you more than usual).  So when you're in a cafe acquiring an extra cup to keep you going throughout a long and active day, and you can't stand the noise and whirr of the coffee machine, this is a sure sign you have been overdoing your caffeine intake! Or if you are easily woken during then night, sleep very lightly and suddenly the usual traffic hum becomes more annoying than ever.......
  • mental alertness combined with physical languor and fatigue. Your mind is racing, full of thoughts, an internal monologue is switched on inside your brain despite 'dozing' off 
  • making plans and even feeling excited, happy and full of ideas
  • frequent urination. 
Bear in mind, that coffee is not the only caffeinated drink around. Tea and Green Tea are also caffeinated and act as stimulants which can have adverse effects shortly after the 'high' wears off. Alcohol, even one glass/one drink can act in a similar manner in sensitive people.

Coffea can be useful when you're travelling, working extra hard on a more demanding project, engaged in creative deadlines,or enjoying a holiday. It is a classic cycle of overwork-stimulus-insomnia-fatigue-more stimulus .....

Coffee can also interfere with iron levels in the body and in some people can increase likelihood of anaemia in which case there will be other symptoms such as breathlessness when ascending stairs, frequent loud sighing and heaving deep breaths as well as fatigue and feeling 'washed out'. Some people experience emotional moodiness such as irritability,and can be easily offended through over-sensitivity caused by extra jarring of the nervous system. Another homeopathic remedy which can be used to counter this particular pattern is : Ignatia 30c

Coffee can also mess with your kidneys, seriously interfere with your blood-sugar levels and cause excessive levels of acidity thus disturbing the pH balance in your body ...but I shall leave these topics for another day! 

So are you a person who loves your coffee and regard it as an essential part of your daily routine? Are you always promising yourself to give up on this luxury because you know it's just not good for you? Then keep Coffea 30c and Ignatia 30c to hand!
