I have suffered from chronic diarrhea for sixteen years due to having Crohn's disease. I read on your site about using cayenne pepper for this. I went and bought cayenne pepper capsules and it is working great. I am concerned though that this may cause ulcers? Also, I have a colonoscopy scheduled soon and the bottle says to stop taking two weeks before surgery. I am wondering if that would apply to my procedure as well. I also wonder why I should stop taking it before surgery.
Yes stop taking it 5 days before surgery, ask your Doctor., also anything that thins the blood, such as aspirin.
cayenne is used in curing ulcers, so don't worry about that. source: http://herballegacy.com/Ulcers.html (read testimonials)
