Cayenne pepper is a type of hot chili pepper that has been used to heal many ranges of disease in Chinese and Auyverdic Medicine. Named after the city Cayenne in France, and having been nicknamed “The King of the Herbs”; cayenne contains high amounts of Vitamins A, C, B-Complex, calcium and potassium, and possesses some powerful healing qualities for digestive and circulatory disorders. Dr. Schulze, an authority on natural healing and herbal medicine, says “if you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.”
Cayenne is a natural stimulant for the body, aiding its energy processes without depleting the adrenals, as is the case with coffee and tea. It boosts the body’s circulation system, increasing bloodflow, lowering blood pressure, and aiding in male libido. It lowers unhealthy cholesterol and triglycerides and Dr. Christopher, a master herbalist and naturopathic doctor, says cayenne can even stop heart attacks by drinking one teaspoon of cayenne in 8oz of hot water. It has been found to repair tissue in the stomach and balance the functioning of the intestines, aiding proper elimination of toxins. It helps the body create more hydrocholoric acid, which directly increases the amount of nutrients that can be absorbed from food. It reduces the incidence of allergies, relieves heartburn, eases toothaches, can stop internal hemorrhages, and stimulates the flow of saliva. In one study conducted by the American Association for Cancer Research, the active ingredient in cayenne, capsaicin, was even found to kill prostate cancer cells.
