    Ulcers

    Coffee causes the stomach to become more acidic, leading to ulcers of the stomach and duodenum and reduced pancreas function. It can also lead to an overgrowth of harmful intestinal fungi (gut dysbiosis).

    If your metabolism is balanced you tend to have warmth in the body, you are cheerful, adaptable, and goal oriented. You do well eating almost anything from the beneficial food list above in moderation. However, if you consume foods in excess that are more heat generating, like garlic, onions or spices, you may experience an imbalance. An excess of heat affects the small intestines, liver, gallbladder, spleen, and heart. This can cause you to become hot-tempered, overly critical, impatient and can lead to skin rashes, allergies, eye problems, ulcers, or diarrhea.

    When the gallbladder and pancreas are not able to supply sufficient alkaline buffering minerals to the duodenum the pH sensitive intestines cannot accept the acidic stomach contents. The pyloric sphincter, which separates the stomach from the first part of the small intestines (duodenum), is pH sensitive, meaning that it does not release the acidic stomach contents unless it also senses the correct alkaline pH on the other side. This is Nature's way of ensuring that we do not damage the delicate intestinal tissue. Unfortunately, the unpleasant side effect of the pyloric valve not accepting the stomach contents is that the contents can back up into the stomach and cause heartburn. If the problem is severe enough the stomach contents can be sent right out from where they came.
