I had a heart attack 1 and half years ago. 3 nights ago I experienced pains and was hospitalized and found to be suffering once again with a heart condition. I searched the internet and came across your site. Thank you for an amazing treasure of cures and remedies. I used 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a tablespoon or two of honey in rather large glass of boiling water. I found the taste really delicious! I swallowed crushed clove garlic with this drink and truly my heart settled almost instantly and my BP is normal! To all heart sufferers, this is an amazing remedy to try, you only benefit from it. I intend having this daily probably for the rest of my life!

I have tried the Cayenne Pepper and Golden Seal capsules. I would generally take two in the morning and 2 in the evening. Worked pretty good. I also have tried the apple cider vinegar and that works well too. 2 to 3 tsp 3 times a day did it for me.

I tried cayenne too and those two times it raised my blood pr to 175/100 when earlier it was 150/88. Does not work on me, but I read it works on most people. I am the odd one out it seems. Going to a holistic doc in ten days. Taking a half lisinopril once or twice a day and trying the acv.

I luv to share this. I was told as a 40-something Af. Amer women, that I was borderline hypertensive and put on meds. Not good. I was falling asleep. Also no good to cut the dose -- comatose. A friend told me about a folk remedy - cayenne pepper. She said it needed to be organic cayenne- it's stronger, I guess. I am now over 50 and my pressure is usually in the range of 110/70. I do take a 12mg. water pill to keep me from retaining water also. I started with @1/4 tsp (of cayenne) in any liquid you want 2x a day. If needed, you can up this to 1/2 tsp but do this slowly so your body can adjust to the increase. Now I do watch my salt intake but I only use the cayenne when I have had a particularly salty dish.
