This weekend both my wife and I experienced the same strange feelings of vertigo. Mine was more on Saturday and then she was afflicted with it on Sunday. After trying to figure out what the hell was going on the only item we both shared was coffee. And for both of us the feeling started after morning coffee. As I though about this even deeper I realized that it was a fresh bag of coffee that I opened on Saturday morning.
The Coffee was an off brand at Safeway called “Safeway Select Kona Blend”. I remember purchasing it because it was a dollar less than the brand we usually purchase. I threw out the coffee that I dumped into the coffee container then threw out the container and washed the coffee pot through and through. All I can think is that the plants that produced these coffee beans were sprayed with some type of chemical to prevent an insect invasion.
I cannot prove that it was the coffee that effected us this way so I don’t want to get crazy over attacking Safeway, but I have learned a vital lesson here. When it comes to the things that I put in my body, quality counts. Sometimes saving a few dollars doesn’t always mean big savings. The cost of losing this weekend was far greater of value along with our own health than a dollar.
This morning I am drinking a fine cup of Seattle’s Best and I can walk without feeling like I am falling over.
