If you’ve cut yourself, one of the best remedies for cuts is believe it or not: Cayenne Pepper! Cayenne can be applied to open wounds or even taken orally to stop bleeding.
Nosebleeds, deep cuts, even arterial gushing will stop within seconds. Cayenne pepper allows cuts to clot quickly so you can keep all your blood inside your body, where it belongs.
How to Stop Bleeding in 10 Seconds with Cayenne Pepper
Just sprinkle organic cayenne powder on cuts, scrapes and abrasions to stop bleeding. Contrary to what you might think, it does not burn.
A poultice of Cayenne wrapped around a wound will ensure safe healing and will often not even leave a scar!
You can also stop internal wounds from bleeding by drinking a cup of hot water with a teaspoon of cayenne stirred into it.
Here’s a quote from the late Herbalist Dr. John Christopher’s book, School of Natural Healing:
“…take a teaspoonful of cayenne in a glass of extra-warm water, drink it down, and by the count of ten, the bleeding will stop. Instead of all the pressure being centralized, it is equalized, and the clotting becomes more rapid. Whether the bleeding is internal or external, a teaspoon of cayenne taken orally in a glass of hot water will stop the bleeding quickly.”
Other Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne is rich in capsaicin. The pepper also contains vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin E, potassium, manganese, and flavonoids (which give the chili its antioxidant properties).
Dr. Christopher: Here’s How to Stop a Heart Attack in 1 Minute with Cayenne Pepper
Pain and Inflammation
Cayenne is great at relieving pain from inflammation. It works by depleting a neurotransmitter called Substance P, thus desensitizing nerves that signal pain. It is good on sore muscles, backaches, stiff neck and other pains.
Beneficial for Blood Clots
Cayenne pepper also helps reduce atherosclerosis, encourages fibrinolytic activity and prevents factors that lead to the formation of blood clots, all of which can help reduce the chances of a heart attack or stroke.
Helps Cure Ulcers
Cayenne pepper also helps in treating ulcers by peristaltic movement of intestine. Cayenne pepper is also great for the stomach and the intestinal tract. It stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation and elimination.
