People have been using various types of herbal snuffs for centuries.
All kinds of herbal blends used to be VERY "vogue" (you should see all the varieties of antique "snuff boxes" for carrying around in pockets & purses).
In the Natural Healing Crusade videos, Dr. Schulze passes it around to every person in the seminar (looks like a few hundred to me), and they have a "group snort" (lol, following by LOTS of sneezing & coughing).
I've snorted it, so has Rocky. 'Wings snorted STRAIGHT cayenne. Nothing happened but clearer sinus passages.
Heck, if you're scared, then don't do it. You can always turn to allopathic medicine (you know right?, the third leading cause of *DEATH* in the US) and they'll be happy to try to fix you up, take 10-20x the money, trash yer liver...but there's no reason to be scared of them or their methods & chemicals.
It's 1/16th of a tablespoons of natural plants that are the :::insert scary organ music here::: REALLY frightful thing!
Willowwisp, I'm being sarcastic & "silly serious".
But truly and seriously, if it scares you, and you don't want to do it, PLEASE don't order it. I have no idea which of the videos it's on (Natural Healing Crusade) - you could watch those, listen to Dr. Schulze s explanation and see everybody else doing it...and see what you think (???). I can't imagine it not being beneficial...but there's no way I can guarantee it, because I don't know what's in your nose.
The only thing I can guarantee is that it WILL burn like Hades for a few minutes, and you will breath easier & clearer...and if you have a bacterial or fungal infection, it WILL be beneficial for that.
