Several years ago I bought a book that gives you tips on how to boost your brain power and enhance your memory. Yes…I noticed that I was a little forgetful, so this book caught my eye.
One of the tips in the book was to drink coffee to boost your brain power. So, when I started to feel tired or sluggish, I would run for the coffee.
Several days prior to writing this blog post, I noticed after I drank a cup of coffee, I was experiencing some sharp pains on the side of my head and my blood pressure was elevated.
This prompted me to stop the coffee! I noticed after stopping the coffee, my headaches went away and my blood pressure was normal.
After that discovery, I thought…OH My GOSH!! I love drinking coffee!! But..NO MORE COFFEE FOR ME!
Then I thought, And my heart health is more important than that cup of coffee. I’ve decided to stick to drinking herbal teas. In fact, after drinking my herbal teas, I feel ” fabulous” and drinking tea does not raise my blood pressure or cause headaches.

This post is not meant to keep you from drinking coffee, however, I want to encourage you to pay attention to what happens to your body after drinking coffee.
