Yes, as long as it isn't over-done. Some think there are antioxidants in coffee that are healthy to consume. But keep in mind that coffee is dehydrating to your body, so make sure you are getting enough water in addition to the coffee.

Yeah, and also it helps to get a quick in the morning if you feel very tired when waking up!

Some people say to avoid caffeine, but my sleep medications make me too drowsy in the morning. I drink diet soda and tea because I don't like coffee, but it's the same concept. I think the important is just the standard rule: moderation, moderation, moderation.

I went off coffee last year when I was first diagnosed. I felt miserable and never really got used to no caffeine. After a few months, I added it again. One cup in the a.m., that's it, but it does make me feel better.

In France no one is walking around with a jug of coffee.
They mostly drink it black sitting at table or the bar and it is expresso.
Expresso has less caffine than percolated coffee.

the lighter the bean the higher the caffine content.

mixing milk with coffee is sometimes hard on gallbladder.
for some it is that combination though that helps bring on a bowel movement.

ayurveda medicine says that cardomenn in your coffee helps take away the ascid effect on gut.

It definitely helps to clear the cobb webs in my head in morning and jump start my energy.

Always depending on which way I drink the coffee. Espresso or cappacuino is less taxing on my MIND.

Strong percolated coffee makes my mind race too much and always with stupid thoughts bordering on paranoia.
when that happens between the coffee and the thoughts I think it stresses my whole body.

Coffee for me is definitely a high medicine in enema. nothing clears my brain better and take away that flu feeling.

There is so much lousy coffee out there that just tastes like poison and then there is the $6.00 coffee that is too much extra stuff. soy or milk

sometime I swith off from coffee to earl gray tea in mornings and do it for month or two but there is nothing like the coffee for me.
it takes me out of my stupor.
