Heart attacks are frightening. If you’ve ever had one or witnessed one, it’s not something you want to experience ever again. One reason heart attacks are so scary is that they make us feel fragile, as if we have no control, no ability to stop them.
What if you could improve your health to avoid heart attacks, and keep something on hand to stop a heart attack in progress? Would you feel better going about your daily life, knowing you have more control over the health and functioning of your heart than you thought?
Cayenne pepper has been known to stop heart attacks and to revive heart attack patients. This sounds incredible but is it too good to be true?
According to Dr. John Christopher, pioneer of herbal medicine, “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.” It is suggested that this be repeated eveiy 15 minutes until the crisis has passed.
Dr. Richard Anderson, author of “Cleanse & Purify Thyself’, says that using cayenne pepper and hawthorn berries together offers the most potent effect on the heart. He believes that a regimen of cayenne pepper combined with hawthorn berries 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.
He tells the following stoiy about his mother: “I had her taking hawthorn berries and cayenne when she had a heart attack at the age of 79. Her diet had not been the best, and she was in an extremely stressful situation. While in the hospital, they found three blocked arteries and wanted to operate immediately. They did not think that she could survive for more than a few weeks if they didn’t operate. (How many have heard that story!) The doctors thought it would be very risky to operate, but they had her there. So they decided to take some tests in the hopes that they could find an excuse to operate. In spite of the fact that she had been taking lots of aspirin for her arthritis,smoked like she was the reincarnation of a boiler factoiy, and had just had a heart attack, they found that her heart was incredibly strong. In fact, they felt that her heart was stronger than most people in their 30’s! The good news was that not only did she survive the operation, but also she stopped smoking! Well worth the operation, don’t you think? In my opinion, that was the best thing the doctors ever did for her. Well, that is what hawthorn and cayenne can do for the heart, and every good herbalist knows it; every good doctor should also know it, but very few do.”
According to Dr. Richard Schulze, hawthorn berries strengthen and stabilize the heart. But they don’t do anything for the circulation. Adding cayenne is what produced the cures.
Let’s look at how cayenne pepper works on the body overall, and on the circulatory system.
Cayenne pepper, with its bounty of healing properties, affects every part of the cardiovascular system: every cell, every tissue, every lining – every wall of every blood vessel – capillaries, arteries, veins. It gets the blood to the heart muscle, not just to the insides of your heart where the blood is pumping. It has a wonderful combination of healing properties that work together to break down bad things while building up good things. This makes cayenne pepper a multipurpose, spicy wonder!
When you take cayenne pepper, you get flavonoids to protect your heart cells. Cayenne pepper heals and strengthens heart cells, even as it works to improve circulation and clean up arteries. Cayenne pepper is filled with heart building and blood regulating properties, and it works instantly, for prevention and intervention.
Cayenne pepper is rich in potassium, a mineral that is vital to the health of your heart. The plethora of minerals and nutrients in cayenne pepper lead to optimum heart health, as well as heart attack prevention. Cayenne pepper also helps to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. And its benefits to the circulatory system improve the health of the heart and the overall health of the body.
If you want to know more about preventing heart attacks, most people take to drinking teas that are 1 part cayenne and three parts hawthorn berry. If you are concerned about heart health, consider carrying a bottle of cayenne tincture with you for emergencies. To prevent emergencies, also consider adding cayenne pepper to your daily food and supplement intake. Always discuss this with a doctor first. Do not try to self-treat your heart condition or heart attack. Let friends and family know, however, that you have cayenne tincture and would like to try it, among other things, in the event of a heart attack.
