Cancer & Coffee

Cancer has affected the lives of many. Whether directly, through a family member, or through a friend, we have all experienced the brutally painful trials and tribulations that cancer puts a person through. From the fear that is ignited during the initial diagnosis, to the days spent sick and exhausted after chemotherapy, life is no longer the same bright and cheery routine it once was.

Doctors’ Choice Coffee® is a one-of-a-kind coffee that is ideal for individuals who are undergoing any trying and exhausting treatments in hope of healing. By no means are we claiming this is a miracle coffee, but we are proudly claiming a formula that takes the side-effects of chemotherapy and the sensitivities of cancer into consideration. Our goal is to provide individuals battling cancer with even the simplest of joys that come with a cup of a coffee.

What Makes Us Different?

There are countless products used on a daily basis that increase our exposure to ingredients capable of developing into cancer as they sink and settle into our bodies. While many of them are labeled with warnings, very few individuals understand what these wordy warnings are really saying. It’s not just the highly chemical products, it’s substances as simple as the sugars that are baked into our foods and mixed into our coffee. That’s where we started.

The high acidic levels of coffee make it nearly impossible for cancer patients or individuals dealing with digestive issues to enjoy coffee. Our formula incorporates ingredients that not only avoid the discomfort and sensitivity caused by the ingredients found in most coffees, but it also offers nutritious ingredients that provide the body with the extra care it needs during the chemotherapy process.

The Ingredient That’s Sparking Curiosity

Acrylamide is a primary ingredient found in most of your common coffees and it is beginning to spark warnings within coffee shops. The chemical is used in industrial processes, but is also used in a vast majority of high-temperature cooking processes. When the sugars and amino acids within the coffee beans are cooked at a high temperature (above 250° F), Acrylamide is formed.   

Research has suggested that coffee is one of the products whose exposure is more than likely to put you at risk of intaking acrylamide. Rather than eliminate coffee from a regular diet, we wanted to find a way to enjoy it without putting ourselves at risk of the acrylamide.

A Different Coffee Altogether, Doctors’ Choice Coffee®

Certain to be a one-of-a-kind formula, Doctors’ Choice Coffe was created perfectly to provide additional support to healing patients that a normal cup of coffee cannot provide. In all three Doctors’ Choice Coffee® Lifestyle Blends (Premium Paleo, Antiaging Memory Support and Antioxidant Fat Burning) you’ll find these supportive ingredients:

Panamanian Boquete Gesha (h3)

We have selected an award-winning coffee bean from Northern Panama to create a foundation for our coffee. With a flavor that is rich, bold and warm, the nutritious ingredients added in are only following suit to a flavorful cup of coffee.

Ganoderma (h3)

Ganoderma is a mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries. Its medicinal uses have been tied to longevity and cancer treatments. What makes this such a great ingredient in our coffee is it alleviates a majority of the side effects of chemotherapy, like the nausea and kidney damage. It’s also a great antioxidant!

Chaga (h3)

This ingredient is loaded with B-vitamins, phenols, minerals, enzymes and flavonoids that not only support the immune and digestive system, but taste great! Being able to curb the nausea from chemotherapy while supporting the body's immune system is something we love being able to do.


Bacopa lends big support for the memory and brain function to keep alert without the mental fogginess and is used to treat a broad range of mind-related health concerns. These include Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, anxiety, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms, epilepsy, and as a general tonic to fight stress. 

Gotu Kola

This herb is loaded with health benefits in its ability to speed wound healing, improve the health of the skin, boost cognition, soothe nervous disorders, treat respiratory issues, reduce toxicity, protect the heart and heal the circulatory system.

If you, a family member, or a friend are suffering from a diagnosis of cancer, Doctors’ Choice Coffee® is something you should look into. There are too many life changes that cancer patients undergo, and giving up coffee should not be one of them. Our award-winning coffee has not only given cancer patients their coffee back but an even better one to drink and satisfy their health concerns with. Place your order of Doctors’ Choice Coffee® today and see how any or all three of their Lifestyle Blends with all natural ingredients and bold flavors will bring back the enjoyment of drinking coffee to someone that is battling cancer.

“A Great Cup of Coffee”

Being a cancer patient for longer than five years, I had to give up coffee as it was too acidic for me, giving me heartburn afterward. Back in November of 2015, I was given a few of the Paleo blend to try and I absolutely could not believe how good and rich it was without the acidity that normal coffee has. Since then, I’ve been drinking 2-3 cups per day of the Doctors’ Choice Premium Paleo and I can guarantee you this, it’s one of the most important things I look forward to each and every day. Try it and see for yourself!  Christine Thompson, Santa Rosa Beach, FL
