Re: coffee is said to raise cortisol.
Yes, it does.
That’s why it’s not your highest choice to drink coffee in the afternoon.
A morning cup of coffee (no later than 9:00 am except for specific health reasons) protects the lungs from asthma, protects the large intestine and stomach from inflammation, and BLUNTS the post-lunch cortisol response.
Scientists need to be clear about what they mean by “elevated cortisol.”
Elevated salivary cortisol, elevated serum cortisol, elevated extracellular cortisol, elevated intracellular cortisol, elevated intraorganelle cortisol, elevated subnuclear cortisol, or elevated molecular cortisol?
Elevated cortisol in combination with testosterone, DHEA, DHEAS, ACTH, HSD enzyme, etc.?
Elevated active or inactive cortisol?
2 things are for sure about taking control of your cortisol …
(1) reduce tummy size and
(2) reduce imaginary stress.
Abdominal cells are packed with “membrane-bound microsomal enzyme,” attracting cortisol to cells like a magnet.
Stress is a real-time healthy response to environmental cues.
Imaginary stress is about the past (what you think happened to you) or about the future (what you think is going to happen to you).
Perceived stress is always caused by a TRAUMA (an engram), and the identification andconversion (rehabilitation)of traumainto ENERGYhas been my ongoing chosen profession (my gig) since the 1970s.
