I keep a bottle of 100,000 HU Cayenne Pepper at my office, in a laptop brief case, car glove box,
home, bathrooms, kitchen cabinet, etc. One teaspoon (couple capsules opened) in hot water, drink it down. It's supposedly well documented to stop a heart attack fast while waiting for the EMTs, or next step...get to a hospital fast.
There are many documented cases of an Oriental doctor who used
this routinely. He always said, if the patient was still alive when he
got there, he could stop the heart attack immediately.
always thought that was kind of funny. The body is in full blown heart
attack mode, patient drinks a teaspoon full of 100,000 heat unit cayenne
pepper in hot water, and the body must say, "WOOOOOO! STOP THE HEART ATTACK,
WHAT THE HELL DID HE JUST DRINK?"

(NaturalNews) When the famous master herbalist Dr. John Christopher was
bothered by stomach ulcer problems as a student, one of his herbal
instructors recommended young John drink a solution of cayenne pepper
powder in water daily.
At first, Dr. Christopher thought this was
a contradiction. How could something so hot help his ulcers? But he
bravely took the advice and to his surprise, it did cure his ulcers.
Following that experience, Dr. Christopher become a zealous advocate of
cayenne for both heart issues and for boosting the efficacy of some of
his other herbal formulas.
Christopher has even documented cases
where he helped patients come out of heart attacks using only a teaspoon
of cayenne powder in a cup of warm water. He isn't alone; there are
several anecdotes of people recovering from serious heart attacks by
downing cayenne teas or tinctures. (Sources below)
One of Dr.
Christophers interns, Dr. Richard Schulze, ND, MH, took up the cause
proclaiming, "If you only master one herb in your life, master cayenne
pepper. It's more powerful than any other." Both Schulze and Christopher
recommend taking a half to full teaspoon of cayenne powder in water two
to three times daily as an overall health tonic.
Using cayenne as an herbal medicine or tonic
you use cayenne, ensure it's organic. Even organic cayenne is
inexpensive and the potential benefits are invaluable. The powder comes
from various dried and ground chili peppers, all containing capsaicin
(cap-say-sin). The amount of capsaicin is indicated by the cayenne
powder's heat levels, measured in Scoville heat units (SHU) or heat units (HU).
lowest therapeutic level of SHU or heat units is 35,000. You will often
find cayenne powder listed at 40,000, 60,000, 90,000 or 100,000 SHU or
heat units. Unless you have a fondness for really hot spicy foods, you
may want to start at the 40,000 level. Ultimately, moving up the heat
line is recommended for optimum efficacy.
Dr. Christopher liked
to use warm purified or distilled water to mix in the fine cayenne
powder. One-half to a full cup of water can be used for to mix a half or
full teaspoon of cayenne that can be quickly gulped. Allowing the heat
to permeate is part of cayenne's therapeutic value, which is a reason why
Dr. Schulze disdains cayenne capsules.
Dr. Schulze endorses using
a homemade tincture in addition to the cayenne tea. A tincture is easy
to carry around and may provide an on-the-spot remedy for heart attack
to avoid an ER trip when away from home.
Cayenne's health benefits
powder serves as both a general tonic and a medicine. In addition to
potentially helping cease the fatal throes of a heart attack, ingesting
cayenne daily also clears clogged arteries while strengthening the whole
cardiovascular system and the heart.
It is also a valuable aid for digestion and elimination which can ultimately help heal
hemorrhoids and ulcers. Both Dr. Christopher and Dr. Schulze assert
that ingesting cayenne powder will boost the potency of the other herbs
and supplements you're taking.
In cayenne studies, scientists
have demonstrated an 80% reduction with prostate cancers in mice and in
human prostate cancer cells in cultures. The capsaicin in cayenne actually creates accelerated cancer cell apoptosis, or cellular self destruction.
pepper contains many beneficial phytochemicals, extremely bio-available
vitamins C & E, and minerals, including the vital heart-health
mineral magnesium. It cleans the blood, allowing hormonal signals to
make their way unimpeded through your system and enhancing the immune

"solutions" for heart and other health issues using all natural
solutions like this. Inexpensive, non-toxic cayenne goes well beyond
