Well, since I am on the subject of heart attacks, I thought I would give you some positive things you can do to hopefully prevent having a heart attack and to help after you have had one. I know about the benefits of cayenne pepper,but I had forgotten the benefits it has for the circulatory system until I was looking at Dr. Christopher’s website again. I ran a cross his statement on cayenne. This is a direct quote from that site.
“This herb is a great food for the circulatory system in that it feeds the necessary elements into the cell structure of the arteries, veins and capillaries so that these regain the elasticity of youth again, and the blood pressure adjusts itself to normal.
When the venous structure becomes loaded with sticky mucus, the blood has a harder time circulating; therefore, higher pressure forces the liquid through. Cayenne regulates the flow of blood from the head to the feet so that it is equalized; it influences the heart immediately, then gradually extends its effects to the arteries, capillaries, and nerves (the frequency of the pulse is not increased, but is given more power).”
Needless to say I started to give my husband a pill a day. I think it might be one pill everyone over 30 ought to take.
Now you might be wondering why I had cuts in the title, well, I went to an alternative health workshop where the speaker talked about how he used a cayenne paste to stop cuts from bleeding. Now I have never tried this, but he said it worked and at that point I remembered I had wanted to tell all of you about cayenne for heart attacks and figured I would add that little tidbit as well. Who knows when you might need it, besides if our health care system fails we all might have to learn to take care of our own health. I hope that never happens, but it never hurts to be prepared.
Just some interesting things to think about, and a great time to wish all mothers everywhere a happy mother’s day.
