The Power Of Copper

For those that have been checking out my show for the past few months, you hopefully have noticed that I have been using a copper pitcher to hold my water. Now you know I like to try out things before I suggest them to the tribe, and here is something that I highly suggest for the FAM. Copper has been praised as of late for its health benefits, but I must be honest the only reason I tried it was
Cups Don't Stay Shiny
because I received a copper cup as a gift. At first I was not impressed, but as I started using it for my water it began to feel good to me. First off, I felt like royalty drinking  from a metal cup, and for some reason the cup and contents always seemed to be at the perfect temperature for me. After about a week of drinking from the cup I decided to do some research, and that is when I became impressed by the properties of copper.

Copper Water Bottle
For those on the journey the first surprise I got about copper was the fact that copper is used by some enzymes to produce melanin. After I read about that I was hooked, but there is more. Copper is supposed to positively charge water and in the process purify it. Copper is supposed to kill unhealthy microorganisms like molds, fungi, algae, and bacteria. The copper ions are supposed to get into the water to help bring the body's PH into balance. It is also known as a strong anti-oxidant and aids in the formation of healthy skin cells (eliminates wrinkles). If you are looking for something that helps with weight loss, water that has been sitting in a copper vessel helps by helping the body breakdown fat, and properly eliminate it. For those that suffer from anemia copper can help because it is an required element with in the body that is used to help us with the formation of cells, and aids the body in absorbing other minerals like iron.

When I first started with the copper drinking cup I figured since it had all those benefits especially when it came to melanin. I should make drinking from copper part of my daily ritual. So I ordered a copper water bottle to use in the office, so that I could stay hydrated during the work day. The beautiful color helped me remember to drink my water and it felt so good that I wanted to move to starting my day with some copper water.

I graduated from the water bottle because that would not hold enough water for me to do a proper toast. I decided to get me a copper pitcher so that I could have enough water to start my day off to a great start. By adding the copper pitcher to my daily ritual it gave me the opportunity to experience water that sits in copper for 24 hours. That is when the magic started for me. I can taste a slight metallic flavor in the water, and it started feeling good. I have always been healthy so I can't say that I have noticed any of the health benefits, but the taste of the water helps get me ready for my day. I believe that you can benefit from using copper as well, and maybe we can share some notes, or insights if you chose to embark on this journey.

Gye-Nyame Coffee - A Drink For The Journey

FAM, on the "Daily Toast" you often hear me talk about the 4 pillars to staying healthy, proper breathing, drinking pure water (half your weight in ounces), eating cultural appropriate food, and movement. These pillars will keep you healthy and feeling good. We stress cultural appropriate food because we believe that every culture has particular diet that helped them survive. Every culture develops a relationship with the land they inhabit, and this land (territory) strives to take care of the people (culture), and provides them with food that helps them survive. When a people follow their cultural ways of eating they avoid many of the diseases that are a scourge upon the world today.
As ADOS we have a strange situation because we were stolen from our land, stripped of many of our cultural ways, and separated from our natural diet. It is up to us to piece together what we can to build back to our cultural ways, and our natural health. We are existing in an international world where many  foods are available to us, but to stay healthy we need to plug into our unique culture and heritage.
I personally have been experimenting with different things and I will begin to help you plug into some things that can bring some balance to your diet. We have to move away from the slave diet that was thrust upon us, but we have to strive to move back into some of the cultural ways that kept us living long and healthy lives.
Being ADOS we know that our cultural ways can be traced back to Africa's Western coast, but we have been here for over 400 years and certain things have been added to our culture and all of them were not bad. We have to begin to rebuild and find things that can help us move toward optimal health. One of the things that I am working with now is my coffee intake. I like black coffee and I was looking for a way to make it culturally appropriate so I will share my Gye-Nyame Coffee recipe. My daily intake of coffee now is another tool that not only keeps me healthy but helps me plug into my cultural power by way of the principle of Kujichagulia.
Gye-Nyame coffee is made with black coffee that I make with a french press. I use a french press because I believe that I get more out of my coffee through the process, plus coffee making has become a cultural ritual that once again empowers me. After my coffee is made I add Baobab powder, coconut oil, and sometimes "That Ambrosia". Baobab powder is made from the fruit of the baobab tree that originates in Africa. it is often described as the tree of life because it lives for such a long time. This fruit is said to provide high amounts of vitamins B-6, & c, minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and niacin. It is full of fiber  which is good because this helps you lose weight and it is a prebiotic which means that it feeds the microorganism that make up your microbiome. This power packed fruit has a slightly sweet taste, but it is not overwhelming.
We will stop here today but for those that want to try out the baobab power here is a link for you to check it out for yourself: Organic Baobab Powder​
