Cayenne Pepper Powder is the Herb That Helps All Others

By Joy Mary | Submitted On April 25, 2008

When most people think of peppers, they think of Mexican or Italian food. Yet cayenne or red pepper has a long list of medicinal benefits. "Cayenne is possibly the single most wonderful, beneficial plant to grow and have on hand (the granulated form) in case of emergencies." (Ingri Cassel, September Idaho Observer, 1999) So what is so good about cayenne?

First, cayenne pepper is effective as an astringent. Some even recommend powdered cayenne be kept in a first aid kit at home or in the car. Profuse bleeding from an open wound has been stopped by the count of ten, simply by sprinkling the wound liberally with cayenne. Cayenne tea has also aided in clotting. Cayenne equalizes the blood pressure and effectively stops excessive bleeding or hemorrhaging.

Cayenne has also been used as a natural painkiller, a treatment for stomach cramps, and temporary relief of joint pain. Gargling cayenne tea can sooth a sore throat, but it is recommended for those who don't like its spiciness, to follow it with a little sugar. Cayenne acts as a catalyst, carrying all other herbs and supplements quickly to the place in the body where they are needed and increasing their effectiveness. It is also high in vitamins A, C, B complex, calcium, and potassium and useful in the treatment of colds, sinus problems, and respiratory ailments. Other uses found across the web include treating high blood pressure, chest pain, migraines, athlete's foot, and sinus problems. It is an effective blood thinner (so don't take cayenne before surgery). Some even claim it puts them a good mood.

Cayenne is also effective in stimulating blood flow. "Now the healing power of nature is in the blood and to accelerate the healing power of nature I am convinced that there is nothing that will do this like cayenne pepper; you will find it applicable in all cases of sickness." (Utah Historical Quarterly, Vol. 10, 1942, p. 207) Thus cayenne is used in treating frostbite, gangrene, and other circulatory problems. One rural doctor reported remarkable results with heart attack victim's survival rate when he gave each one cayenne tea, one teaspoon in a cup of hot water. Try using cayenne tea in conjunction with CPR in the event of a heart attack. Further, chronic poor circulation can be countered with a drink of cayenne tea three times a day.

Cayenne may be taken as capsules but be sure the pepper is not irradiated (exposed to radiation to destroy harmful bacteria). Two 'cayenne potions' presented on the web include fresh lemon, cayenne, and pure water (with a little maple syrup); and, apple cider vinegar, molasses and cayenne. For quickest results, however, cayenne should be taken as a tea or as a spice in foods. Either way the cayenne will boost the digestive system since much of cayenne's healing starts to occur in the mouth.

But that's not all cayenne pepper powder can do. The cayenne pepper herb has been used resulting in a number of other incredible results. Find out more at http://www.MoreThanAlive.com
