Cayenne for a Numb Finger

Cayenne pills fix numb finger

Many years ago, I was bitten on my baby finger. It went numb for several days so I took 1-2 cayenne gel caps and the finger was normal by the second day. Likely the pills I took were from Now, but I don't think it matters about the company. I have tried to take a tsp of the cayenne. That is a terrible way to take it. Best to take it with food. Also great to treat any cold or flu.

Cayenne Side Effects

After making a drink with cayenne pepper, I fainted. It went down with no problem. The taste was not bad because I added lemon to the water with the cayenne pepper. 20 minutes after consuming the drink I made I began to feel nausea and become lightheaded and passed out.

Recommended Cayenne Book

Dr. Richard Schulze was perhaps the #1 student of Dr. Christopher; Schulze was born with bad heart valves and not expected to live. He cured himself using cayenne, to such an extent he was called by fellow students of Christopher "Dr. Cayenne."

Schulze has cured thousands with "incurable" conditions. See his site He generally adds cayenne to any herb tincture he makes to amplify its effectiveness. Cayenne opens the capillaries and allows whatever herb or supplement you take better ingress to your cells.

Here is a link to a book he did "Curing with Cayenne:"

Cayenne Pepper for Heart Attack Symptoms

I had a heart attack 3 years ago [2 stents inserted]. I had slacked off on the Pauling protocol that I had been using after I stopped meds a few months after the heart attack, and last Christmas day I got the same pain and sweaty feeling as when my heart attack happened.

I put 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper in a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar, drank it, and in 5 minutes was back to normal. I am careful now to maintain the Linus Pauling protocol. No further problems. Saved $100,000 that my first heart attack cost. This remedy was given by Dr. Daniels of turpentine remedy fame.

Why Cayenne Beats Colds and Flu

Why cayenne beats colds and flu:

Lithium is antivirul. Nightshade vegetables tend to bioaccumulate lithium. Cayenne is a nightshade.

I have taken cayenne for over 10 years. Great for energy, ED and overall health. Used in my mouth for bleeding after getting a tooth pulled. Put cayenne powder right on the hole and the bleeding stopped. Also used it on cuts many times. Burns for a few minutes but works.

Holy moly! OK, I switched to a shot glass to get it over with faster. 1/4 to 1/2 tsp in just that little bit of warm water and toss it back. If you're up to a whole teaspoon, I would suggest tossing back two shots of 1/2 each but I haven't gotten that far yet. The shot glass is so, so, SOOO much easier than tea and a straw with the hotter versions of cayenne. I could toss back these shots all day and I'm a monumental WUSS when it comes to hot stuff and this cayenne is rated 130,000. WAY hotter than the wussy 30k I used to use as tea. I was afraid I couldn't get this stuff down more than a tiny bit at a time but no MORE! WOOHOO!! I would liken it to using a straw because all the hot is at the back of the throat and dissipates very quickly. Particularly on one little sore spot that I have and that didn't burn near as much as it did yesterday. Also, you can fix up a shot and dip your finger in it, put it in your nose and sniff it off and up into your nose several times. Works very well. And if you tilt your head back and to the sides, it will get all up in the various sinus cavities. You should definitely google the "sinus cavity" images because, all together, they're HUGE! And all over the place in your head.

Cayenne for Deep Cut

Had a 3/4 inch gash in my palm where the fat cells were protruding. Cleaned with alcohol (only stung for about 4 seconds), then poured on Cayenne (which barely burned), then bandaged and it is no longer bleeding and seems to be in great shape. Thanks to all for saving me $1000+ at the ER.

Multiple Cures with Cayenne

Sindee (San Diego) on 06/24/2017

Cayenne is used in India for thousands of years and midwives use it to stop bleeding as Schrimsh from Seffner, Florida testified to in her post from 2010. I use cayenne in my buttermilk with a pinch of salt to make a drink in hot summer days in our valley (runs around 100 degrees for days), a good side-effect my blood has thinned out so no more heart problems in over 12 years and in winter no more cold feet and numb fingers.

I gargle with cayenne at the first onset of scratchy-sore throat and haven't had a cold or flu in years.

Cayenne and Butcher's Broom Causing Side Effects

Unsure (Northridge, Ca.) on 03/31/2017
0 out of 5 stars

Has anyone mixed cayenne pepper capsules with butcher's broom capsules? About a month ago, I started taking herbal supplements to not only improve my poor circulation, but also help with my 9 year edema issues. I have been on prescription diuretics from various doctors. None of them were getting to the root of the matter so I started taking at first Dandelion leaf capsules. No difference, then the parsley leaf with the cayenne capsules. (only one in the a.m. & then one in the p.m.) I am on heartburn medication also. I did notice some differences with the swelling of my ankles with the parsley. But I finished the bottle & started yesterday on the butchers broom.

Now I'm having chest pain like squeezing/sharp only on the left side of chest. But it comes & goes. When I take the cayenne & butchers broom capsules in the a.m. I don't have the chest pain.? Why only at night? I'm also on high blood pressure Prescription meds, also on high cholresterol, lasix, one for joint pain, one for thyroid, I just read an article that says don't take butchers broom if you have high blood pressure! I also am experiencing back of head pain but it to subsided. I'm done with the butchers broom! Will order the apple cider vinegar capsules next.

Will let you know how that goes!

I get a pure organic Cayenne from amazon in powder form and extract from the powder pure form it takes 45 to 60 days to extract the the pure form with no additives and put it in a eye dropper bottle and add about 20 drops to a glass of infused citrus water and drink it with breakfast and have no side effects basically because alot of the companies mix crap with it as fillers even in their Tinctures as well. The formula was from a Herbologist who recieved her PHd and wrote a study and thesis about all the benifits using it. Would suggest you start out with 10 drops and work up to 20 once a day.

I have suffered with bleeding hemorrhoids for a few years, plus bleeding gums. I commenced taking Cayenne Pepper daily for Heart Arrhythmia -and over the course of a few months have noticed my gums are healthy and I no longer have bleeding hemorrhoids!!! I find taking Cayenne Pepper& Black strap Molasses has helped my heart significantly, not cured, but improved very much. I also use Ylang Ylang essential oil in a carrier oil & apply to my chest after taking a shower.

When I first started using cayenne I would do a tablespoon, this was way too much! I use this mix for sinus problems and sore throats. It is amazingly fast. In a matter of 10-15 minutes a sore throat subsides to almost nothing. I drank it for the first time today for what I think is a migraine after looking up the remedy on here. I am very surprised, I can report now that after 10 minutes my headache is a dull throb. I actually was in such pain this morning that I was vomiting. I will take some more in about an hour or two to help knock it the rest of the way out.

I will tell you I literally just finished off a cup of my Cayenne pepper mix. I like things strong so I mix 1 cup of boiling water and a teaspoon of Cayenne with a chicken bouillon cube for taste. I know the cube isn't the healthiest but I can't bring myself to drink tea, honey and cayenne. You may want a 1/2 teaspoon.

Hope this helps.

Cayenne Helped Anxiety, Panic Attacks and More

Everson11 (Mt) on 12/31/2015

This is my general post concerning my treating of almost all issues with cayenne, despite having a history of surviving 2 heart attacks by using cayenne, after reading the story of Dr. Christopher, and my Awakening tonight... I had an extreme bout of anxiety / agoraphobia for a stretch of a week, with combined almost fainting / vertigo for 3 weeks or more... This is what happened after my nap, the first real sleep in 3 days... I woke up after drinking a lot of beers (7) and felt great, no anxiety, still had head fog but no dizziness... Went to check the mail for the CBD spray, and had no "anxiety" or agoraphobia of being outside... I drove fine, albeit just to the mailboxes and back, but still, the previous 2 days were difficult to get that distance going to the store for beer

A couple of hours later, the anxiety started kicking in, so without the spray, I did what I had to and drank beer as fast as possible, which this time only increased the anxiety and brain fog / dizziness...

For the fun of it, I searched Earth Clinic for "Cayenne Dizziness"... Being that the dizziness and vertigo was triggering the massive panic attacks, I completely forgot that Cayenne treats the ENTIRE circulatory system, which obviously includes the brain, and Arrhythmia matches all the symptoms

I boiled water, added it to about 1/4 tsp of Cayenne and drank it...

The anxiety was gone within 45 seconds or so, and I cleared several paper towels worth of mucus, clearing my lungs... I had been planting my foot in the floor so hard when under these attacks, that I literally tore a gash in my new slippers... The foot pain was intense... It's GONE now, I can feel it warm, but no pain

When I cut my finger deep and healed it with Cayenne, Adrenaline kicked in, and I ignored that it was helping the anxiety and lungs completely... Same thing with the Heart Attacks... I was hitting the prime target for the Cayenne, and ignoring the other benefits...

I guess I would have known on both occasions if I couldn't breathe, but I'm sure I could perfectly, so I had NO IDEA until now that Cayenne takes care of the lungs as well...

There is surely some adrenaline involved now because I'm able to see and concentrate etc, and it will take more experiments to figure it out, but I'm going to drink a cup every morning... Everybody should, it costs about 2 cents.

ACV, Cayenne and Bicarb as Antifungals

ACV, Chilli, and Bicarb - all three of these are antifungals.

I use Bicarb quite frequently as a spray whenever my plants have fungal issues. Works quickly. Bicarb also neutralises the mycotoxins produced by pathogenic fungi.

Cayenne Pepper for Sleepiness/Coffee Subsitute

T-ann (Florida) on 09/27/2014

Mama to Many--

Thanks so much for all the info you post on this website. Since I discovered the site I have tried many of the remedies and most all of them have worked! Along with many others on here, I appreciate every person who shares their knowledge. I rarely post anything because its too hard using my tablet, which is what I am on 99% of the time. I had tried the cayenne pepper in some coffee recently, for the same reason you did, and was happy that it gave me the energy to finish some household chores. I am very close to the same age as you and my main complaint about getting older is the loss of energy. Its very frustrating. Cayenne works...even though it doesn't taste so good. I plan on trying aloe vera also...adding it to a smoothie. (cut from the aloe plant). I tell everybody I know about Earthclinic and how many wonderful, natural remedies there are for just about anything that ails you. By the way, several months ago I had an ear that was closed up. It persisted for 2 weeks and almost drove me crazy. Nothing really helped too much. But cayenne came to the rescue again: immediately after I took a little (mixed) my ear made a popping sound and I could hear again! Good stuff :-)

Cayenne Pepper for Sleepiness/Coffee Subsitute

Mama To Many (Tennessee) on 09/27/2014

This afternoon I was driving home and I was really sleepy. I was thinking about all I had to do when I got home I started to think about coffee. Yum. I figured that would perk me up to do what needed doing. At the same time, I notice that my gall bladder area was just a bit off. The last thing it needed was coffee. :(

When I got home I put 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper into a mug with grape juice and drank it up.

I have to admit, I think it worked as well as coffee. I was able to do what needed to be done and didn't feel tired. And I didn't aggravate my gall bladder. But, alas, I have to admit that cayenne pepper in grape juice is not nearly so delicious as a good cup of coffee would have been...
