Cayenne Pepper (powder) is the 1st Herb, that I used medicinally over 40 years ago (I'm 65) to heal my Bleeding Ulcers, and because it worked VERY POWERFULLY to STOP my PAIN and BLEEDING, I've been studying and applying Herbs ever since for myself, and particularly for others, which includes SERIOUSLY-ILL People!! Because I eat Cayenne Peppers in my Food and add it to my drinks, I also don't have Cholesterol or High Blood Pressure Problems and my Heart is HEALTHIER!! I've also used Cayenne Pepper (powder or tincture) SUCCESSFULLY on SERIOUS Cuts and Wounds! In the wintertime, I wear only a Winter Vest, instead of a Winter Jacket, because my Blood circulates VERY EFFICIENTLY! Besides ALL of this, I also LOVE SPICY Foods!! I DEFINITELY wouldn't be WITHOUT Cayenne Pepper(s) (90,000+ heat units) in my Spice Cabinet and in my EMERGENCY Kit!!
FYI, I'm going to be growing several varieties of Cayenne Peppers this spring and summer, that are both HOT and SWEET, because I sampled a few peppers last year, that were both HOT and SWEET, and I REALLY LOVED them!!
If you LOVE HOT Sauce, like I do, here's one that is 1 MILLION Heat Units, which I haven't tried yet. But I've tried Black Mamba Sauce, which is 600,000 Heat Units and it is SUPER INTENSE!!
Great to meet another "pepper head". I have
always loved peppers but did not know how good
they were for you. I won a hot chili eating
contest for so many years they finally conceded
no one had a taste for it like me. When I had
a garden of my own, I always grew all kinds of
peppers, including habaneros. I would like to
grow some african bird peppers and wonder if
you know a good source for some seeds or plants??
I use cayenne tincture a lot in water and would
like to make some tincture using the bird peppers.
I have yet to injure myself so have not had the
joy of packing a wound with it but trust me I have
a jar of frontier ground cayenne standing ready
for such a need. Otherwise, like you, I sprinkle
it on almost everything that pepper would be
good on, and have ditched all my black pepper
in shakers for cayenne.
I really grew comfy with using cayenne by doing
the Master Cleanse and amping up the amount
of cayenne I used in the lemonade used for the
fast. I am due for another cleanse come spring
which is just around the corner.
I think that cayenne and olive leaf are my
favorite herbs so far. I am still learning though
but if I had to pick a short list, those make it
for me. Thank you for the additional info too
I have accessed your pages and studied there
many times. I wish I had collected the Bisner
interviews before they went down but hey, its
all good going the herbal route. I cannot
recommend your file sharings enough. I am also
a huge Dr. Christopher fan so have learned much
from what you have posted on your health pages.
Hi again, Zoe! I didn't notice African Bird Seed Peppers listed, but have you looked at Horizon Herbs selection of Pepper seeds? Go down to the 1st listing - Pepper, Aji Colorado on the 1st webpage below.
Wow Tom, thanks for all the links. I will explore
them all later today when I arrive home from my
foray into town. My neighbor and I garden together
and he is really interested in the bird peppers and
I would actually like to have an inside garden with
all sorts of peppers from faraway places. I had friends
from Singapore bring me some peppers touted to be the
hottest in the world. They were about the size of
gumballs and a piece the size which would fit on the
head of a pin would leave you hanging your mouth
open for a long time. Mostly, I am not as interested
in the heat anymore as the medicinal value. There
are some Thai varieties too which I know from my
delights in Thai food can put the bloom of HOT into
one's belly. I will explore these links and appreciate
you sharing them~!
correct? so if I'm taking 40 000 hu that's alright, but better to work up to hotter? are there some indicators to know when it's hot enough to be medicinal, like warmth in the stomach, or heat rush to the head that dr schulze talks about.
actually, I haven't felt either of these, but the cayenne I'm using is not that hot, and it's also dried. mind you, it still worked fantastic to bring down a blood pressure spike that happened due to parasite die off while cleansing.
it is an amazing herb. I'm going to start growing my own, I can't seem to find fresh organic peppers here anywhere.
