Tea, coffee and heart

Tea and coffee contain caffeine that is an immune system stimulant making the whole body artificially strain, even if the organism does not need the strain at the moment.

Results of research studies indicate that caffeine:

  1. increases the activity of the immune system;
  2. stimulates the cardiovascular system (prevents the development of type 2 diabetes);
  3. makes the body intensively use its resources, especially the resources of the cardiovascular and genitourinary systems, thus resulting in premature aging.

What happens to the body when consuming a coffee?

After drinking a caffeinated drink in the morning, a man no longer controls the rhythm of work.

An attempt to take a time-out after an important conversation will not give you the desired relaxation. Heart, being under impact of stimulants does not notice a change in the situation and tries to work so hard as if the issue is still being debated.

As a result, by the evening the body will be exhausted by overwork but still excited. In the morning you will feel fatigued and the only way to be in form again seems to take a cup of coffee or tea. So the circle closes.

Fatigue will accumulate and weaken the cardiovascular system, causing the premature destruction of its cells.

Coffee and Health

Health can be compared to a bank account you have inherited without knowing the exact sum. Sometimes you spend too much and never think of the consequences. And then suddenly, seemingly due to a trifling trouble you are hit by disability.

And caffeine is like a good fellow that is always ready to help you spend gaily your money. But even when you manage to fulfill an urgent overtime work, be sure the cost will be too high.

Caffeine will intensify the body systems functioning, but damage the cellular nutrition. And that will cause the loss of vital cells and premature aging.

World Traditions: the English Tea and the Chinese Tea Ceremony

As for the Chinese traditions, the tea ceremony is not based on a notion of healthy way of living. Drinking tea is a comparatively new tradition. It was targeted to make the Japanese occupants, who had invaded the country, take off their guns and greet the host while visiting a Chinese family.

Even now in some small restaurants in China there is a short curtain in the doorway that serves to remind a guest to bow to the host. But many of the educated Chinese do not drink tea. As treatises say consuming tea for a long time may result in weakness and anaemia. The ancient hieroglyph for “tea” now is used to denote “poison”.

It might be possible that the Englishmen, having learnt about the tea properties, began to import it for their workers, to intensify the labor at the plants and to prevent machine breaking.

Human Heart, Character and Caffeine

In the Chinese language as well as in the Russian language there are sayings and expressions which are proving that in the old days, people knew the peculiarities of the heart.

In China they say about a person who is blatantly lying. “If his heart were in the middle, he (or she) wouldn’t say this”. The true position of the heart is central.

The Russian people also saw the subtle connection between the person’s heart and individuality. The evidence of this can be proved by the Russian words having the same root with the word “heart”: these words mean “angry”, “to be angry” or “cross”, “to be cross”. The words convey the emotional state of a person who is “beside himself (or herself)”.

Surprisingly, the criminalists have treated this interconnection between the heart and the character more seriously than the cardiologists. Criminalists believed that people in affective state cannot control themselves.

Really, though the cardiac muscle tissue of different people is almost the same, every person’s heart differs in functional properties such as

  1. inclination angle,
  2. location relative to median line,
  3. basic resting heart rate,
  4. force of contractions,
  5. peculiar reaction to a change of the situation.

All these parameters are individual. So these factors reflect the person’s individual character.

The considerable changes in condition of the heart lead to the loss of the person’s individuality. The person ceases to be himself (herself).

Tea, coffee and some other stimulants affect the heart functioning, by changing the heart rate and force of contraction. As a result, it leads to the personality changes.

By the traditional Chinese medicine the human heart is viewed as the abode of the spirit. Of course, emotions affect the heart rate, but the spirit hardly likes to be bothered by such a trifle as a cup of coffee in the morning. So, take care of your heart and try to consume as little tea and caffeine as possible.

Enjoy good Health!
