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.

      Off the top of my head …

      (1) Eat the Solar Way (Chronobiotic Nutrition).

      (2) Yawn. It decompresses fat cells.

      (3) Do light non-repetitive exercise, e.g., free-form dancing.

      (4) Wear red clothing while exercising.

      (5) Drink room-temperature liquids, not cold ones

      Here’s a bonus point for good luck, Steve …

      (6) Eat nuts or seeds (or grapes or berries) in odd numbers, like 3, 5, 7, or 9 almonds.

      This last one utilizes a psychological principle yet has its origins in the Periodic Table of the Elements.

        Thanks Atom.Thanks and I will keep you updated.I remember you saying to eat the nb of almonds that you think your ideal weight should be.So if I had a weight of say 160 in mind I should eat 15 or 17?Thanks again Steve

          One measure of ideal weight is to multiple the width of the wrist in inches times the height in inches, give or take 10 pounds in either direction.

          There are other methods too.

        RE: (6)
        Maybe a really stupid question… but if i have 3 almonds and 3 brazil nuts, then i’m having 6 nuts total… Is that still odd numbers nuts?


        • April 9, 2011 @ 2:36 pm atomb

          There’s no stupid questions, only stupid answers.

          Psychology is a funny thing … what “occurs” to us “out of the blue” has a bearing on our life.

          One “solution” to your odd/even question is eat 3 almonds, 3 brazil nuts, and 3 hazelnuts. :)

    I abstained from coffee for twenty years or so. Since knowing Atom and introduced to The Cobalamine Tonic that is made with 1 tsp. cacao, tsp. grade b maple syrup mixed in a cup and then a cup of organic coffee over that. Well, beyond yum…and I get no traditional coffee buzz.

    The Cobalamine Tonic at the right time is good for lots of things that I learned from Atom in his book, “Yes, No, Maybe Chronobiotic Nutrition”

    About Cobalamin Tonic:

    I add a few slices of lemon to it and it tastes majestic! I know citrus is also a morning food, though not as early as coffee. But still, would you think it is OK to do. I just love the taste of cobalamin tonic with lemon in it!


    • April 9, 2011 @ 2:47 pm atomb

      Lemon added to Cobalamine Tonic is not your highest choice.

      It could be worse — you could be adding slices of orange.
