Cayenne Pepper- A Force to Be Reckoned With!
I did not know what cayenne was truly capable of until I read the book, Curing with Cayenne: A Layman's Guide by Sam Biser.
Cayenne is a very special pepper that does more than spice up your food. Some of the major benefits of cayenne pepper are that following: stops external and internal bleeding, stops the beginning of a heart attack and stroke, dissolves clots, and much, much more. It is an amazing herb!
Taken as an eyewash, it brightens the eyes and reverses glaucoma. Now listen, the next day your eyelids with be closed shut with eye crust but that is a good thing because, it means that the cayenne eyewash is pulling out all of the toxins in your eyes.
Cayenne can be taken with juniper berries for the kidneys, with other antibiotic herbs for infection, with aloe vera for burns and gastrointestinal (GI) care, with hawthorn berries for heart health, with milk thistle for liver health, with peppermint leaf & fennel seeds for digestive health, with women's herbs for pregnancy, menopause, infertility and so much more! Basically what cayenne does, other than heat up the body, it transport the herbs to that parts of the body that the herbs need to be. It is like a vehicle guarantees that the herbs get their job done. Isn't that amazing?
Speaking of GI care, cayenne does AMAZING THINGS FOR CONSTIPATION. I am telling you, if you have constipation, cayenne pepper is the one for you. I tried every thing: herbal teas, pharmaceutical laxatives, chia seeds mixed in water, bulk laxative, the whole 9 yards! Either it did not work OR the effects ceased to be effective over time. But cayenne, works every time😁.
First, I tried it in hot tea- Boy was that cayenne muy caliente! But I had what I would like to call, "a spicy bowel movement". Now I mix the cayenne pepper with honey or jam and drink it with hot or lukewarm tea- same results. But the herb is not without side effects. I got an intensive stomachache and intensive nausea. Other side effects are dizziness, weakness and confusion. I almost felt like throwing up every-time but I did not; thank goodness! In order to reduce your chance of getting the side effects, take the cayenne/honey or jam paste with ginger or lemon tea.
What else can cayenne pepper do? IT TREATS PAIN! That's right you chronic pain sufferers out there. You hate taking pharmaceuticals? Are you a heartbeat away from becoming an opioid addict? A drug addict? What to wave that big, bad, chronic pain bye bye? Introducing... (drumroll please), organic cayenne pepper powder! Just make sure that the strength of the cayenne pepper is above 80,000 units (same for everything else). I was suffering from shoulder pain all of last week. However, I took some cayenne/honey paste every night with daily application of topical pain salve & patch and voila! My shoulder pain went from an 8 to a 3! Pain Relief can be yours for less than your medical insurance deductible (😅)!
Just drop by any organic foods store and ask for the organic cayenne pepper. The organic one is reddish orange in color, not dark red (that one is not organic and is probably less than 80,000 units in strength). You want the organic, SUPER HOT one that is at least above 80,000 units. I say 80,000 units because that was what the legendary herbalist, Dr John Christopher started out with. There are lesser strength units out here, but I recommend starting with 80,000 units if you want to see results. And please, take your time ingesting the cayenne/honey paste; just ingest it with a spoon and enjoy with any tea of your choice; preferably herbal tea.
If you want to learn more about this amazing herb, you can get Curing with Cayenne: A Layman's Guide by Sam Biser from Amazon, as well as the VHS tapes that come with it.
Cayenne Pepper is truly an herb not to be underestimated!
