A "Hot" Herb – Cayenne

Matching the heat of the weather, I am going to talk about a "hot" herb – Cayenne.

One doctor stated, that if you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne. It's more powerful than any other. There are many medicinal uses of cayenne, which include arresting gangrene, arthritis, asthma, heart attacks, hemorrhage, blood pressure, indigestion, inflammation, cough, and much more. 

Cayenne's main property is that it is a stimulant. This "hot" herb is great for the circulatory system and it feeds elements that may be lacking into the cell structure of the arteries, veins, and capillaries to give them the elasticity of youth, and helps the blood pressure normalize. It regulates the flow of blood from the head to the feet so that it is equalized. It influences the heart immediately, then gradually extends it effects to the arteries, capillaries and nerves. The frequency of the pulse in not increased, but it is given more power.  

Another great reason to use cayenne is that it helps create hydrochloric acid. Hydrochloric acid is needed in the stomach to aid in digestion and to adequately absorb many nutrients including iron, copper, zinc, calcium, vitamin B-12, folic acid and protein. Many people with high stress, supplement with B-12 to help strengthen the nervous system. Yet, our body cannot use or absorb it without a proper amount of hydrochloric acid in our stomach.

Cayenne aids the body in creating this acid so that we can benefit from the minerals and vitamins we eat in our diet. One of the symptoms of those with pernicious anemia is that they are not able to absorb B-12. Many have seen great improvement with the use of cayenne. Hydrochloric acid is also an important part of the immune system. The normal acid barrier of the stomach in a healthy state easily and quickly kills bacteria and other bugs that enter the body. It also prevents bacteria in the intestines from migrating up and colonizing in the stomach.

Heart Attack & Hemorrhage
Dr. Christopher was often called in the middle of the night for heart attack patient. He would give them one teaspoon of cayenne in hot water, and states that it brings them out of an heart attack. The same goes for a hemorrhage. Whether the bleeding is internal or external, one teaspoon of cayenne in water will stop the bleeding quickly.  

Cayenne should be taken with food so it settles on the stomach easier without unpleasant burning. Start with small dose and work your way up. At Herbs4You, we have many formulas that contain this valuable herb. We also have a cayenne tincture and cayenne capsules that are readily available.
