What Are The Benefits Of Chicory Coffee
Are there any interactions between chicory root and prozac (fluoxetine). I heard that chicory is a good coffee alternative and I would like to try it. Thanks?
Coffee substitute: Chicory root appears to have no known adverse interactions with any drugs. It may cause skin, respiratory, or intestinal allergies and it may induce uterine contractions...therefore it is not recommended in pregnancy.

Touch ups: Drink your coffee & tea with a straw. A glass of wine will not affect your whitening. Normal use will cause your teeth to become dense, thus giving the illusion of darkening. This takes years. Your dentist should have made you bleaching trays. You can use take-home bleach to touch-up your teeth if you feel it necessary. ...Read more
Does chiccory or chocolate stain teeth I know tea, coffee, red wine and blueberries stain teeth. What else. I had teeth bleached and want to keep white
Deep colored foods: Any deeply colored food or drink can stain the teeth and darken them. It's critical that you refrain from deep colored foods and drinks while whitening and for at least 24 hours afterward as well. To keep the white longer and yet not give up your favorite things, use a whitening toothpaste as long as it doesn't make you sensitive. ...Read more

Just realized that the probiotics I've been taking since I was 17 weeks pregnant (28 weeks now) are made with inulin from chicory root. Worried!?
No reason to worry: Inulin is a naturally occurring carbohydrate from root vegetables that is not absorbed & used as a food source for probiotics & intestinal flora. It is fairly benign & there is no evidence that it is hazardous to take during pregnancy. However, it may feed unfriendly flora as well as friendly flora so may not be good for everyone.

I hear a lot of people doing coffee enemas, saline enemas, and other types of enemas on a daily basis? Is this safe? What are the benefits
No proven benefit: There are no proven benefits to any kind of coffee, saline, or other substance enemas. Since the colon is able to absorb liquids and other substances, there also can't be some potential risks. There also would be a slight risk of perforating the colon. I would recommend against pursuing any kind of therapy with enemas, unless it is prescribed by your primary care doctor or your gastroenterologist. ...Read more
What are the benefits of drinking plain tea or coffee? Does green tea offer more health benefits than other types or are they about equal healthwise?
Tea/Theanine: There is a component in tea called theanine that relaxes a person and at the same time sharpens his or her focus. It's not the same for herbal teas even though I'm sure many of them are good as well. Try green tea, or even a bit better, white tea. Green tea helps boost immunity and burn fat minimally because it is a metabolism booster. Peace and good health. ...Read more

The amount of coffee or tea intake you described will not do any harm, it is also not likely to produce any great benefit either. Suit your taste.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Controversial: Opinions & research on coffee seem to change often: one week it's bad for you; then some benefit from it is found. Caffeine is a stimulant; so can interrupt sleep patterns; also acts like diuretic; too much can overstimulate the heart & nervous system; can exacerbate reflux as can acids in coffee. General recommendation is no more than 2 cups a day, preferably in the morning. But that may change…. ...Read more
Too many variables: Too many variables are involved, such as how many cups of coffee, how much caffeine is in each cup, how much time is one talking about, is one new to coffee or a daily drinker, does one have problems handling caffeine, how much cream is in the coffee, how much sugar is there, etc... Caffeine will temporarily make one more awake, but he'll not sleep well, so it can cause both better or worse mood. ...Read more
Blood vs. Not: A classic description of coffee ground vomiting in medicine is suggestive of bleeding in the upper GI tract, more frequently from an active stomach or duodenal ulcer, however, I do see a lot of people who claim to have had this time of vomiting when in reality no ulcer is found. Some foods may like jam may mislead one. I would still see a physician to rule out bleeding as it is of major concern. ...Read more
