Coca Cola can be Deadly

Deadly Coke

Deadly Coke

An interesting story was released yesterday about a 30 year old woman who drank 7 liters of coca cola a day, that’s almost two gallons, that lead to her death.

It really is too bad that most people don’t really know much about health and what causes disease. Even the simple fact about how bad sugar is for the body is something that most people don’t know.

Her partner had no idea that drinking that much coke was bad for you. He said, “I never thought about it. It’s just a soft drink, just like drinking water. I didn’t think a soft drink was going to kill her.” But, it’s not water, it’s junk food and as I’ve said many times, it’s deadly.

He now thinks that cola should come with a warning label. Anything with sugar in it should come with a warning label in my opinion.

Imagine, at 30 she already had all her teeth removed! And, still she had no idea anything was wrong! This was in New Zealand too, where people are generally more healthy than they are in the US.

She would become moody and had no energy if she didn’t have her fix. That’s a big clue for you, if you think something you really love might be bad for you then see if you can get off it without discomfort.

The next test is to stay off it for three weeks. After being away from a problem food for awhile the body stops defending against it so when you have it again your body will react strongly to it. That’s the elimination technique, it works really well to let you know what is up with your diet, especially things you really love to eat.

Another factor is that she had 8 children. Having children is a huge burden to a woman’s body. Among other things it is a huge drain on the adrenal glands.

The main symptom she had was heart cardiac arrhythmia, an abnormal heart beat. Hher heart would “pump like mad,” This is a symptom of possible potassium deficiency. Makes sense because the rest of her nutrition was pretty bad — potassium is found in vegetables and fruits which it sounds like she wasn’t eating at all.

If you suspect you have a potassium deficiency you might want to consider eating more fruits and vegetables. Not too much fruit though, even fruit sugar can add to adrenal fatigue. And, if you don’t usually eat vegetables or fruits then you might consider taking a potassium supplement short term.

If you suspect adrenal fatigue you might want to check out my adrenal fatigue book. Or, you can schedule a phone session with me if you’d like to know more about your particular situation.

Eating the right foods and avoiding processed foods is essential to good health. If you think you have a problem then get proactive and learn how to take care of yourself. There are a lot of articles on my site here that will help you with that.

Meet the Author

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa

    Come on – you failed to mention the 30+ cigarettes a day she had been smoking for years. I wonder if that played a huge part? Are you the new fox news and only reporting some truths omitting less convenient ones?

    Great article, thanks for taking the time to post it! I just loved your comment
    “It really is too bad that most people don’t really know much about health and what causes disease. Even the simple fact about how bad sugar is for the body is something that most people don’t know.”

    Powerful statement and hopefully people will begin to realize the importance of the message for their health, the health of their children and the health of our world!

    Thanks again, Wendy Bottrell

    I hope this article proves to be a wake-up call for people to learn about what they put into their bodies. While I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, I am mindful when it comes to soda of any kind, diet or not – I don’t drink it. As a student who studied criminal justice for many years, I learned how Coca-Cola is used regularly: to clean up blood from pavement and concrete from accidents; some patrol officers keep a few liters of Coke in their trunk for this very reason; and car mechanics use Coke regularly to clean battery acid from the top of batteries. Hello??? When I learned about its use for crime scene clean-ups, that made my stomach turn.

    Regarding this particular young women and birthing eight children, information had been published back in the mid-eighties which discussed how pregnancy and birthing affected a woman’s body and hormones, and the information also advised that women wait a minimum of three (3) years before getting pregnant again so that their bodies could fully recover. If this young woman had applied that (ideal) concept, it would have taken her 24 years to birth eight children. What a sad day for not only the young women but for all of her children and loved ones that she leaves behind.

    @Jake, Oh no! Please don’t put the fox news label on me! And, thanks for mentioning that point. While true that cigarettes are a leading cause of heart disease, diabetes is higher on that ladder. Not eating real food and that much sugar would indicate a pretty high probability of diabetes. One of the reasons I didn’t mention the cigs is that it usually takes much longer for them to bring on heart disease. No excuse though, I should have acknowledged that part.

    @Wendy, Thanks, it has been one of the main messages that I have been trying to get across, especially since I was once in the same ignorance boat.

    @Stephanie, great points. I had forgotten about the cleaning properties of Coke. It’s pretty hard to believe that I used to drink them — I was once a big time practicing sugar addict. And, thanks for your thoughts for her family. The idea that sugary soft drinks can lead to death seems to have overshadowed that part of this sad story. Great advice for mothers too, it does take a lot of time to recover from birthing a baby, especially if the mother nurses her child.
