Would you believe it if someone tells you that cayenne pepper has the power to stop a heart attack within a minute? Believe it or not, this is actually true! Therefore, if you don’t already have a pack of cayenne pepper in your kitchen cupboard, you should definitely buy one.
According to Dr. Christopher, an American herbalist, he has never lost a patient due to a heart attack in his 35 years of career. This is because he gives a cup of cayenne pepper tea to patients who are having a heart attack, but are still conscious. In a minute, the patients are alive and well.
Cayenne pepper has at least 90000 Scoville units, according to the Scoville Heat Units. This is also the case in Habanero peppers, Thai Chi, African Bird, Jalapeno, Jamaican Hot Pepper, and Scotch Bonet.
The person who’s experiencing a heart attack, but is still conscious, should be given a mixture of one tsp of cayenne pepper and a glass of water. If the person’s unconscious, few drops of cayenne pepper should be put under his/her. Cayenne pepper stops the heart attack by increasing the heart rate and by carrying blood to all body parts and thus, it betters the circulation. It also stops bleeding and helps the heart recover.
The recipe for the tincture below is one of the best natural remedies for heart attack. Let’s take a look:
- Cayenne pepper powder
- Several fresh cayenne peppers
- 50% of alcohol
- One glass bottle from 1 liter
Preparation: First, put on the gloves and then fill one quarter of the glass with cayenne pepper powder and pour enough alcohol to cover the powder. Next, blend several fresh cayenne peppers and mix in enough alcohol so that it gets a sauce-like texture and add this mixture to the bottle. Then, fill the bottle with alcohol to the top and close it. Leave the mixture for 29 days and don’t forget to shake it daily. After the 29 days, strain the mixture with gauze and transfer the content into a dark bottle. For a stronger tincture, strain it after 3 months. The bottle should be stored in a dark and dry area.
The recommended dosage is 5 to 10 drops for a conscious patient and then another 5 to 10 drops after 5 minutes. Do this until the condition of the patient betters. If the patient’s unconscious, put 1 to 3 drops under his tongue and start doing CPR. Do this every 5 minutes until the condition of the patient betters.
