Cayenne, King of the Herbs!
Cayenne, King of the Herbs!
By: Mrs. Carter
Nutritional value: Cayenne is a very high source of Vitamins A and C, has the complete B complexes, and is very rich in organic calcium and potassium, which is one of the reasons it is good for the heart.
Cayenne can be produced in good quality in the southern states, especially the states that are beyond the southern line of Tennessee. It grows abundantly and of good quality in the West Indies, where the people use it as a remedy for nearly all their maladies. The people there have no fear for the fatal effect from fevers, even the dangerous yellow fever, if they can get plenty of Capsicum. They not only drink a tea of it, but they also bite and chew it and swallow the pods one after the other; neither are they afraid of it doing them harm.
Many herbalists believe that cayenne is the most useful and valuable herb in the herb kingdom and that it is very good for the digestive, heart, and circulatory system. It acts as a catalyst and increases the effectiveness of other herbs when used with them.
Cayenne is a great herb for all sorts of body conditions such as: fresh, open or old wounds, rheumatism, inflammation, kidney, spleen pancreas, fevers, intestines, sunburns, sprains, headaches, skin conditions and many more. That is why it is called the King of the Herb.
Dr. Schultz was said “Cayenne is not an irritant like the mustard and black pepper is.” Jethro Kloss also noted that “It produces the most powerful impression on the surface, yet never draws a blister; on the stomach, yet never weakens its tone. It is so diffusive in its character that it never produces any local lesion, or induces permanent inflammation.” Another statement from Jethro Kloss: “I have thus cured with it in a single night, cases of rheumatism that had been for years most distressing. Though severe on the tissue to which applied, it is so diffusive that it does not long derange the circulation, but on the contrary, equalizes it. Thus it is not only stimulant, but antispasmodic, sudorific, febrile, anti-inflammatory, depurating and restorative.”
Now let’s look briefly at heart attacks. It may or may not be new to you, but many have witnessed cayenne pepper stopping heart attacks in less than three minutes. Let’s read what this doctors have to say.
Dr. Anderson knew of a doctor who rushed out into the parking lot and put cayenne tincture into the mouth of a man who had died of a heart attack while he was parking his car. Within a few minutes, the man’s heart starting beating again.
According to Dr. Richard Anderson, using cayenne and hawthorn berries together has a most incredible effect upon the heart. He believes that a regimen of cayenne and hawthorn berries for several months will greatly strengthen the heart, and possibly prevent heart attacks. He states further that if an attack were to occur in someone who had followed this regimen, chances are very good that no damage would occur.
Dr. Christopher – “In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in–if they are still breathing–I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around). This is one of the fastest acting aids we could ever give for the heart, because it feeds that heart immediately.
After reading about cayenne I myself started sprinkling the real hot cayenne (there are several heat units of cayenne) on my food more often. I also had cut myself a couple of times since then and sprinkled it on my bleeding little wound and it works, it stopped the bleeding every time so quick!
My advice is “don’t go out without having a cayenne with you on hand, if not for you maybe for rescuing someone else.”
There is so much more to say about cayenne, but I’ll let you do some of the research now.
