Dr. Christopher referred to cayenne as the master herb; at first, I didn’t quite understand why. But over the years, while helping others, I now know why it is the master. When Dr. Christopher made house calls, he discovered that cayenne pepper
was a sure remedy to stop heart attacks. He said that giving the patient 1 tsp of cayenne powder in a hot cup of water would stop a heart attack immediately. If this were the only thing that cayenne pepper was good for, it would still deserve the title of master, but cayenne can do much more! Some of the medicinal uses of cayenne include healing ulcers, improving digestion, lowering blood pressure, and helping cold hands and feet. Strengthens and feeds the heart, is anti-inflammatory, relieves
constipation, acts as a blood thinner, dissolves blood clots, cleanses the circulatory system, and helps treat and prevent migraine headaches.
My most memorable experience with the power of cayenne was headaches. But not just a typical headache, a cluster headache. My chiropractor and I have grown to respect and trust each other over the years, and I try to aid him when he is suffering from health issues. He keeps my back and neck in good working order. I see him weekly, and we always
ask one another how the other is doing. One week he tells me that he didn’t sleep the night before because he had a cluster headache. He told me that his cluster headaches began when he was just 18 years old; he is now 55. He said the headaches would start at 2 a.m. and last several hours. The headaches would begin in the same month every year, and he would have them every night for about two weeks. Then they would stop, and he wouldn’t suffer any more of them until the same month rolled around
the following year. He asked me if I knew of anything that would help. I told him that cayenne pepper is known to treat and prevent migraines, so maybe it would help cluster headaches. I gave him a 100,000 HU cayenne tincture. The next time I saw him, he told me that when the cluster headache started, he placed a dropper full of the tincture under his tongue and held it. Within a few minutes, he said the pain was reduced to a much more manageable level. Of course, he was thrilled, and so was
