You know how it goes. One minute, you’re grabbing the remote to watch March Madness. The next, the wife is screaming from the bathroom — and the puddle in the hallway tells you what the problem is before you even get there.
If you’re lucky, just a few pushes on the plunger and it’s back to the hoops.
If you’re not, it’s time to call the Roto Rooter man and your Saturday is shot.
Your arteries are a lot like the bathroom pipes. But when they get gummed up, you’ve got more than your Saturday on the line.
Your very life is at stake.
Today, I’m going to let you in on a simple trick that’s like a plunger for your arteries — an easy way to keep them clear, free and flowing.
And if you’re like me, it’s something that’s already part of your day: coffee!
Coffee can flush the calcium out of your arteries, stopping the mineral from building up and forming the deposits that cause hardening.
The more coffee you drink, the less of that junk you’ll have gumming up the works. And if you drink between three and five cups a day, you could have some of the cleanest, clearest pipes in town, according to scans on the arteries of 25,000 Korean men.
Drink no coffee at all, on the other hand, and you could have coronary artery calcium deposits building up inside you right now.
As far as I’m concerned, this is an excellent reason to drink coffee. Throw in the fact that it can help prevent everything from cancer to dementia, and you might not want to drink anything else.
That said, all the coffee in Colombia can’t reverse the damage caused by years of hard living — so if you think your pipes are more backed up than a cup of coffee can handle, consider chelation therapy from an experienced naturopathic medical doctor.
