Aspirin is not the only way to stop a heart attack. Cayenne pepper literally stops a heart attack in just one minute.
Noted Naturopathic practitioner, Dr. John Christopher, comments that in thirty-five years of practice, not once has he ever lost a patient on a house call having a heart attack. His reason for the remarkable success rate is due to cayenne. He notes that if the patient is still breathing, he gives them a cup of cayenne tea to consume without haste. The tea he makes consists of one teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water. Within a matter of minutes the patient is up and walking around.
Please note that the above is from the personal experience of Dr. Christopher and not assumptions on cayenne.
Best way to use cayenne according to Dr. Christopher
Cayenne pepper must be a minimum of 90,000 heat units (H.U.) in order for the cayenne to stop a heart attack and also the person must still be in a conscious state. General recommendation is to mix one teaspoon of cayenne powder into a glass of warm water. This is basically cayenne tea. Then have the person consume the drink.
In the case of an unconscious person, the recommendation is then to apply a cayenne tincture or extract. Once again, the cayenne must be at least 90,000 HU. Simply place a few drops of the pure extract underneath their tongue. Do not dilute it must be in full strength.
Research proves cayenne ability to halt heart attacks
Research has now demonstrated that by using cayenne on the skin can also halt a heart attack.
University of Cincinnati researchers have surmised that a ordinary over-the-counter pain salve which contains capsaicin, which when rubbed on the skin during a heart attack possibly acts as a cardiac protectant which can decrease and even stop damage to the heart. Researchers had discovered that 85% decrease in cardiac cell death had occurred when capsaicin was applied. Dr. Keith Jones, PhD, and researcher in the university’s department of pharmacology and cell biophysics, states that the capsaicin was the strongest cardioprotective reaction ever recorded.
Dr. Jones and associate researchers had applied capsaicin to particular skin areas in mice which caused responses in the nervous system. Expressly in sensory nerves of the skin that were set off to activate what scientists refer to as cellular “pro-survival” pathways in the heart. The findings had shown that the heart muscle was guarded from injury.
Researchers also had discovered that by making a tiny incision in the stomach area of the lab rodents, it had set off an 81% decrease in death of heart cells. Dr. Jones summarizes that this event along with the capsaicin have demonstrated to work by way of similar mechanisms. This type of distant cardioprotection, by using the skin impulse to set off cardioprotection a long time prior to the blocked artery opening.
According to Dr. Jones in a media statement, capsaicin in topical form has no known side effects and can be easily applied to patients in an ambulance or emergency room way ahead of time of coronary tissue death. This therapy holds great possibility for the reduction of injury and/or death of the event of coronary blockage. This reduces the amount of damage from a heart attack.
Researchers believe capsaicin acts much like acupuncture treatments work on a neurological basis.
Cayenne’s curing abilities
In another heart attack incident, a 90 year old man from Oregon had a severe heart attack. His daughter had given him cayenne extract under the tongue. Medical staff had pronounced the man dead. However, within a couple of minutes he had regained consciousness. In the ambulance on the way to the hospital he had remained semi-conscious and his daughter kept administering the extract to her father. When they had reached the hospital, he was fully recovered and wanted to go home to actually cut his grass. The physician had inquired of the daughter what she had given her father. He noted it was the nearest thing to a miracle he has ever seen.
Capsaicin is noted as being diverse in its ability to heighten circulation and heart action. Capsaicin produces numerous beneficial actions for the entire cardiovascular system. It holds amazing ability to heighten performance of the cardiovascular system while it decreases blood pressure. It produces an empowering effect on the entire system. By tradition it has been used for chronic fatigue and reinstating stamina and vigor.
Dr. Christopher recommends a couple droppers full of the extract if you feel a heart attack is occurring. If the capsaicin does not, work the nitroglycerine will not work either.
If a heart attack should happen, the suggestion is to use a teaspoon of extract every fifteen minutes or a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of hot water. Take every fifteen minutes till you feel it has passed.
Cayenne performs basically as a drug which opens arteries to let vital blood flow to heart.
Cayenne halts blood clots from developing due to it’s action on blood platelet collection. The anticoagulant action is part of the association between cayenne and the heart health, which is obtained all naturally and does not have any negative side effects.
During heart attacks cayenne has the best effect when given orally. As suggested, use one teaspoon of cayenne powder in one cup of hot water which is around 500mg.
Cayenne pepper also carries the names of hot flame, devils tongue and African pepper.
Prior to modern day it was noted to be beneficial in numerous conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. This had included stomach pain, cramping and gas. Cayenne also was used greatly to treat disease of the circulatory system. It still remains today as a herbal medicine.
As we know cayenne in capsaicin cream form has been used in history and still in modern day to provide relief of arthritis pain especially rheumatoid.
The use of cayenne in the West Indies has the cayenne pepper pods being soaked in hot water. Afterward, they are mixed with sugar and the juices from sour oranges and given as a drink to reduce fevers. The capsaicin causes sweat to occur that actually cools down the patient. The orange content provides vitamin C with the sugar producing energy.
If it is used in a compress it will act as a stimulant. Which then prompts blood flow. It has also been used to aide in tooth aches, sprains and alleviate congestion. The cayenne pepper tea is also used as a treatment for the common cold.
The principal medical components of cayenne come from the chemical capsaicin. Which has been widely accredited to giving the peppers their heat content. This content varies from 0 to 1.5%. Peppers are measured by heat units. The amount of heat is the determining factor for the peppers usage and value. Basically, the hotter the pepper is the more capsaicin is contained in the pepper.
The cayenne pepper has immense amounts of vitamins A, E and C and the entire B complex and carotenoids. It is extremely ample in organic calcium and potassium, which is just one of the reasons why it is great for the heart.

When taken orally, cayenne calms the digestive tract and activates the flow of stomach secretions and saliva. It has the ability to restore the tissue in the stomach and has a peristaltic effect in the intestines. It aides the body in manufacturing hydrochloric acid, which is needed to digest properly and the absorption of elements such as nutrients.
Cayenne advances blood flow
Cayenne is the top herb when it comes to increasing blood flow. It can increase blood circulation within just a few seconds.
When an area is restricted of blood flow, cayenne acts like a large explosion in the system. It immediately makes its way through the blockage and eliminates the waste material. It gets to the area which is blocked along with it comes all the nutrients, minerals and vitamins which have been consumed and it to the affected area.
Cayenne is mostly sold in units consisting of 40, 60 or 90 thousand units. It is note that the higher the amount of units the higher the benefits will be received. Lower units are greatly decreased in efficiency and are usually contaminated. Anything which says 30,000 units should be avoided.
Cayenne powder is highly suggested over using the capsules. It is believed that capsules only contain a small minimal affect of cayenne. Immediately when cayenne is placed in the mouth, the stomach produces digestive juices long before it receives the pepper. When it does reach the stomach it has already been prepared for its arrival.
When cayenne comes in contact with the tongue, part of its healing abilities start to happen. The cayenne will become absorbed within a few seconds and the nerve endings will send a message to throughout the entire body which sends amounts of fresh blood throughout.
Ginger and horseradish will also aide blood flow in the body.
If you have never used cayenne before it is suggested to try 1/16th of a teaspoon in some juice. You can even add in honey for sweetener.
Please note that using capsaicin and aspirin together can cause bleeding. However, if you use white willow bark as aspirin it will be fine and no bleeding will occur. Capsaicin can interfere with certain medications like blood thinning medications of warfarin.
As any with any herb use be sure to check with your health practitioner first before using.
Notice on heart attacks
If you believe you are having a heart attack please seek medical attention immediately. No natural remedy should replace immediate medical intervention. Remember cayenne in stopping heart attacks has still not been proven with enough scientific research. If there is no immediate medical treatment available such as paramedics, then cayenne is suggested to be used as previously directed.
