[YEA]  I will try to clear up the confusion about Tabasco or cayenne pepper drops. Tabasco only has three ingredients: distilled vinegar, red pepper and salt. Other brands have many things added, don't like preservatives etc. Tabasco website lists cayenne pepper as the red pepper. I have tried others and the effect is not the same.

Again, the recipe is 20 drops of Tabasco in 4 oz. of water, a couple times a week, taper off and use as needed. Benefits are numerous.

Thank you Helpyourself from Houston for clearing up the confusion regarding tabasco sauce and the cayenne pepper drops. I'll have to pick up that tiny bottle of tabasco next time I go shopping and try your recipe. I'm so glad it has only three ingredients and no preservatives. Cheers! Bess

[YEA]  This stuff is amazing, Cayenne pepper. I have recommended this recipe to people with sinus, headaches, depression, empysema, sore throat, nausea, bacteria, coughing, toothache, and more... Try 20 drops of cayenne pepper (only use the Original Tab_ _ _ _ brand) in 4 oz. Of water a couple times per week. Taper off, then take as needed. Also, have a friend that took this for asbestosis and he swears by it. Another friend takes this to sleep and quit taking his meds, say he doesn't need them. Cayenne is also an anti-inflammatory agent and is also an expectorant, good for the lungs and the blood.

Thanks, I thought you meant some kind of Cayenne drops from the pharmacy or something.

Just one more question, sorry but what do you mean by Taper Off? Not an expression we use over here so I am not sure of the meaning. I looked online and it seems to mean "decrease" so do you mean that with the time one add less Tabasco drops?

Not trying to be picky, but cayenne pepper is different than tabasco pepper they make the famous sauce with. (just down the road from me. ) It may or may not matter though.

Blanche, you got me all mixed up now! What we need is the answer from the person who came up with the idea of using Cayenne pepper drops for health purposes. It is a pity this site still hasn't the possibility to contact the people concerned and get the answers we need. Also a pity that people aren't more precise about the treatments they purpose because this way one doesn't know what to do or can even do the wrong thing. Let's hope the person comes back and answers our questions!

EC: Hi Francisca,

Been waiting on the programmers to add that function since May. It's on our to-do list, don't worry!

Blanche - The original poster cited Tabasco sauce as what they used for their results.

Hi Francisca - I was wondering about that too. I used to be able to get cayenne tincture at the health food store but since moving to Calgary, I haven't found any. I know Dr. Schulze is a famous brand (there are Web sites that tell you how to make it using his methods which is a bit different from other, more simple, methods such as I would prefer to buy it already made - just my preference. Good luck in finding what works for you. Cheers, Bess

Hi Bess, I will just buy Tabasco. A while ago Dr. Schulze sent me his book and it is quite amazing! I am not sure he is someone I would get along with but he surely knows how to get people to do what needs doing in order for them to get better! If his products were available here in Europe I would surely try! Amazing personality nevertheless..... And I will try the Tabasco drink and let you know how it goes! I have quite a few ongoing issues, maybe this does the trick.... We will see!

[YEA]  I take a tspn of cayenne twice a day in hot water with my green tea, ACV and bicarb soda. You can't taste the ACV. I can feel the cayenne moving through my body and feel wonderful afterwards. I am trying to get rid of some varicous veins. Recently the cayenne stopped a migraine which I normally get for days in its tracks. Stop Bleeding Fast! One of natures best remedies for cuts (even deep punctures) is believe it or not: Cayenne Pepper! This wonderful plant can be grown and therefore no "factory" will be necessary. To use - apply liberally on wound. The wound will form a scab and heal much quicker than with even sutures and with no scarring.

From the book: Cayenne Pepper medicinal uses:

Major benefits - Stops Bleeding (internal or external), Heart attack, stroke, or Shock, Dissolves clots.

Minor Benefits - Reviving, Fainting, Dizziness, Weakness, Confusion.

PROPERTIES & ACTIONS: Stimulant (improves blood circulation), diaphoretic (increases perspiration), carminative (improves digestion), tonic (strengthens and energizes a particular body organ or the entire body system), sialogue (stimulates secretion of saliva), rubefacient (increases superficial circulation, which often lessens localized pain from arthritis, inflammation, etc. , antiseptic (kills or controls the growth of bacteria).

Here is an excerpt from the book for an internal use:
Cayenne can be applied to open wounds or taken orally to stop bleeding. Nosebleeds, deep cuts, even arterial gushing will stop within seconds. Blood pressure is equalised throughout the body so there is no excessive pressure on the haemorrhage area and it can clot naturally.

[YEA]  The power of cayenne powder

The reason it suggested to take it with warm water is it works faster because the warm opens up the cell structure--makes it expand and accept the cayenne that much faster, and it goes directly to the heart, through the artery system, and feeds it in powerful food.

I am a recovering alcoholic in my 26th year and have bit longer without drugs. Before find cayenne powder the only holistic products was Epsom salt and ice for my pains.

September of 2009, I did the master cleanse for 7 days and 2 weeks of milk thistle with bentonite clay. During this cleanse noticed the odd annoying pain in my left leg had vanished. Upon more investigation came to the conclusion that caffeine had restricted my circulation and capsaicin (cayenne powder) had opened it.. I used to lie in bed and my leg would hurt or be sitting in a recovery meeting drinking coffee rubbing my ankle in pain. I am pain free:

Every night on an empty stomach before bed without food take 1 fresh squeeze orange, half tsp of cayenne powder and drop of safflower oil. Also in the morning I do the same but have food immediately or else there is the possibility with moving around that it will cause a horrible stomach problems from my movement. What I have read is cayenne powder works as a blood thinner. It suggested don't use it if you have high blood pressure, on other blood thinners.

It does lower ldl and raise hdl. It works also like Midol (pain inhibitor) for women with cramps.

It stops the production of "Substance P" in the spinal cord that sends synapses to neurons to the brain to let us know that there is pain,

I have found personally it has help me get a better night sleep and to feel restful and energized in the morning. I swear by it and use it for all my profile names.

[YEA]  Hello All,

I just would like to share with you an information I recently found on the internet. I am frequently suffering from inflamed and receding gums. I have started to use plain powdered cayenne for toothbrushing about two weeks ago. For me it works wonders as the gums are getting firmer each day and they look now healthy pink instead of dark red. Yes it will burn for a couple of minutes but the results are really convincing. Just do the oilpulling after brushing your teeth and the burning will subside very fast as the oil seems to take it away. Furthermore you will experience no more bad breath in the morning. I hope, this will help somebody else too.

Thank you earthclinic for the great website!

Kind Regards,

[YEA]  I tried so many things to overcome my candida infection but the single most effective thing I tried was drinking a few dashes of cayenne pepper powder in a beverage. Vitamin and probiotic supplementation also helped some. It relieved my depression/fog, fatigue, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, yeasty body odor, itching, allergies, anxiety, high blood pressure, "blurred" vision, generalized muscle pain and spasms.

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  Cayenne Pepper Information Needed: I have been drinking a tonic of 2 tsp raw acv and 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper in 16oz of water and sipping throughout the day. It is fabulous. I am 65 (almost 66) and it really revs up gives my metabolism and mental focus. The only problem I have is that it slightly burns my throat after about 8 oz. I always swish with plain water after sipping to protect my tooth enamel and then swallow. This cools my throat somewhat. Is there a problem with it burning? I don't really mind it as I love the increase in the body and mind. But, is there a potential problem? Am I doing damage to my throat?

[YEA]  I bought Cayenne Pepper because I read in a health magizene that peppers when heating up the body, will help the body to burn fat. So I thought i'd try it. I took 3 capsules of it. Now, I was tired because I didn't get any sleep that day, but after the pepper started to digest, I noticed my engery levels went up. I felt clean inside, like I washed myself out with a hose. On the drive to work tonight, I noticed my night vision was clearer, my brain was more alert, though I was tired and my sight, to brain, to react responces were more alert and quick I actually suprised myself. I can only contribute this to the pepper as it never happened before, and the day I take the pepper, BAM! I feel clean, full of engery, life, I feel good, my mental mood is good, as if the pepper blocks bad emotions. When flossing my teeth, I noticed my body was numb, as if I had taken pain killers. I didn't take any medications, just the pepper, and some zinc. And it felt like I was on some serious asprin or something. I've only been using on it for less then 12 hours now and I can see a serious differance in my body for the better. I can't wait to see what this wonder plant has in store for me.

[YEA]  Aloha! It doesn't seem to matter what ailment my body is going through (arthritic pain, 'acid reflux,' idegestion, stomach ache, back ache, fatigue, etc.), a shot of Cayenne Pepper in some water never ceases to relieve me of the pain, discomfort, etc. You name it, Cayenne does the work. When I was consistent earlier this year, my blood sugar and blood pressure were normalized. I am now purposed to take my daily dosage of Cayenne tea more consistently now to keep the annoying and hindering sypmtoms of sickness & disease away. It also got rid of psoriasis I had in my scalp and thigh.

I FOUND ANOTHER GREAT WEBSITE ABOUT CAYENNE. -- there is alot of good information.

EC: This website sells African Birdseye Cayenne, a product some of our readers have been trying to find.

[YEA]  I have had a sore throat every two months for the last year, I have a thyroid condition and am sick all the time. I am getting a sore throat again and decided to try cayenne. It works for a lot of things like constipation and it helps your body get rid of all foreign germs in your body. I believe in earth friendly products to cure your colds.
Antibiotics can help when really needed so don't rule out it fully and do what you thinks is right for you. If colds last more then a week then see your Doc because your body may not be able to fight it off on it's own. Good luck

P.S. You can take a pill form of cayenne pepper so you don't to deal with the burning and bad taste it leaves behind. It still works the same and it's just easier. Good luck

[YEA]  Cayenne pepper really does work for sore throats! I have been using this remedy for quite a few months now and it works everytime. It does require doses throughout the day but stick with it. My suggestion is to put 1/8 teaspoon of it into a shot glass (2tbsp) of water and down the is not going to taste great so get it down as quickly as possible and be done with it is my motto. My 8 year old daughter can down it like a pro and after a few times could even gargle a little in the throat. Have a glass of something (gingerale takes the heat right off for us) to chase it with and be amazed. Cayenne is also a miracle for cuts that won't stop bleeding. It had worked several times for us. Just wash the cut out in water and put a thick paste of it over the wound and cover with a bandage. It does not burn the cut!!! In fact the first time I tried it the wound hurt after I washed it off too soon. Back to sore throats...Apple Cider vinegar works also but my daughter can't tolerate that so we stick to this one...I do both for good meaasure.

[YEA]  cayenne pepper rememdies: cayenne pepper foot baths will completely cure bad feet, although if you continue to work on hard floors the cure might need to be repeated every so often. also, cayenne pepper does wonders on hemorrhoids when mixed with an otc ointment (not vaseline). go very light on this one and be ready to wash it off yourself if you cant stand the burning. i've also tried cayenne pepper in a vaseline salve that i made on the cookstove that completely cured the bursitis in my shoulder.

Hi. Could Richard from Nth Carolina tell me more more about what he means that it works on bad feet - is that plantar fasciitis, or cold feet, or pain at the ball of feet/ heel spurs ?

Or maybe them all (that would be kool!)


Posted by Paul Blake HMD (Lake Elsinore, Ca) on 03/24/2008

[YEA]  I have been reading your readers' emails and I wanted to make some comments about Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne is one of my favorate herbs for myself and my clients. I had prostate cancer 18 years ago and I cured it naturally using herbs, cleansing and diet only. For the cancer I used the John Ray Christopher method of cayenne tea with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in warm water 3 times daily. Today I still use one or more teaspoons daily in my food at every meal. Just recently I received a call from a Doctor of Chinese medicine who was throwing up blood from ulcers. As I alway do I suggested cayenne capsuls using 100,000 heat units plus. He could not believe that this would work but he took my advice and within a few days his problem was over. Of course I also gave him some advice on changing diet and lifestyle. In my 18 years as a naturopahtic healer I have used cayenne many times for bleeding ulcers. Cayenne also works great for emphysema sufferors, I have seen patients get off oxygen bottles and out of wheelchairs. But the person with the disease must go beyond the herb for the disease and look at the way they eat and their lifestyle. If they do not change their life the disease will appear somewhere else in another form.
