This afternoon I was driving home and I was really sleepy. I was thinking about all I had to do when I got home and...so 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...

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 :-)
