Health benefits and natural remedies using cayenne pepper.
Cayenne pepper delivers healing blood (the river of life) into sick or dying organs
better than any other herb or medicine." Many of the old herbalist claim that in cases of severe cuts, gunshot wounds, etc.,
cayenne can be taken internally as a tea and the bleeding will stop by the time,
in most cases, you can count to ten. Cayenne goes immediately into the blood stream
and adjusts the blood pressure from the top of the head, to the bottom of the feet, equalizing
pressure over the whole body. This takes high pressure, which causes rapid bleeding, away
from the wound and clotting starts immediately.

4. Migraine Headache Prevention
This may be related to the pepper’s ability to stimulate a pain response in a different area of the body, thus reverting the brain’s attention to the new site. Following this initial pain reaction, the nerve fibers have a depleted substance P (the nerve’s pain chemical), and the perception of pain is lessened.
Cayenne is an anti- agent and may even help relieve allergies.
