Chilli Peppers Can Save Your Life In An Emergency
Find out how the hottest herb on the planet can help save your life in an emergency situation.
By: Chilli Willy
The chemical in the chilli that causes a person to feel a sensation of heat is called Capsaicin. It's an oily compound that triggers various responses in the body when eaten or applied to the skin.
These responses vary from feeling intense burning to painkilling effects funnily enough!
However, there is one effect in particular that is perhaps the chillies biggest attribute and that is also capable of saving your life.
When consumed in the mouth (swallowing chilli capsules won't work), the body immediately knows that you have eaten a chilli, and this triggers a very quick response of dilating all the blood vessels in the body. This is the reason that you'll light up like a beacon when you eat a hot pepper - it increases your circulation.
Because of this remarkable effect, chillies can be used to lessen the effects (and also damage) or a heart attack or stroke.
Chillies are known in natural medicine as "drain unblockers" in the body - and for good reason. They literally can save your life in an emergency situation.
Dr Schultze, says that "if you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper".
Dr. Christopher, who has been using cayenne to treat his patients, says this about Cayenne tea "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-health-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).
Similarly, in cases of stroke, it's the same effect that can help save someone's life. Simply using chilli powder made into a tea, can help dilate the blood vessels at the site of the blockage, thus both reversing the stroke and also preventing any lasting damage.
On the subject, here is a very good article which shows you how to indentify a stroke quickly: http://www.wegroworganic.com/
Perhaps most interesting of all, is the ability that chillies have to also stop bleeding within the body - an unusual mixture when you consider that it also helps to unblock the circulation system. But, that's the remarkable thing about nature. Herbs are very complex things, sometimes can containing hundreds of different organic compounds, and it's this that causes them to have a kind of intelligence that acts to provide the right relief under the right conditions.
Chillies can also be taken daily as a preventative as they have a cleansing effect on the body, and they can help to revitalise the circulatory system. And prevention is always better than a cure.
So, if you do one thing today, do some research on the health benefits of chillies - and spread the word!
