Can Coffee Releive The Symptoms and Help Prevent Parkinson’s Disease?

I found this article on coffee and it’s effect on those with Parkinson’s Disease today and really wanted to include it here by linking to the originator.

Even though I believe coffee does play a role in our overall health (not to mention some adverse effects), I find the idea that it could help with Parkinson’s Disease questionable. I am not saying that I do not believe it, because I probably do. My father-in-law had Parkinson’s and always drank a major amount of coffee, daily. It was never any better and only got worse before he died. That is not to say that the symptoms may have been worse without the coffee, could have been. We will never know.

Thomas Kinkade Coffee Cup Art

Yes, those are my cards in the back ground. I’m a 47 year old collector of anything Yu-gi-oh. I just can’t help it. I think they should make a Yu-gi-oh movie using real people. Wouldn’t that be neat? ;) I have something over 1200 cards. Some good one’s too!

Sage Coffee and Sage Tea Recipes and Instruction

I found a couple of articles/recipes online that I really wanted to share with you. I seem to get quite a few hits from search engines where the surfer is searching for Sage Coffee or Sage Tea.
I searched until I found something appropriate to “hopefully” help those seeking these recipes out. I will list the credits for these in the footer of the post.

* 1/2 oz fresh sage leaves
* 1 oz fine sugar
* 1/4 oz grated lemon rind
* Juice from one lemon
* 1 quart water, boiling

Green Tea for Nausea ( personal account )

I suffer from mile nausea most of the time. I don’t know why or where it comes from but it can be most discomforting. There are times when it is worse than others but mostly it happens in the evening or at night while I sit on the couch watching TV.
A long time ago, I tried using ginger root capsules for it. It did help but never did really rid it off. I was pretty much satisfied with the results.
I noticed that it mostly happened if I were to doze off while sitting up or if I were only asleep for a few seconds. Don’t know what’s up with that. Heat in the summer makes it worse.
