I know you're a busy man, so only answer if you can spare the time please.

If You are At Risk For A Heart Attack – READ CAREFULLY

If you are at risk for a heart attack, you need to carry some high quality cayenne pepper oil or liquid with you at all times. If you do have a heart attack, first call 9-1-1, then put some of the cayenne pepper oil under your tongue. By the way, try this before you get a heart attack just to see what it feels like. You may want to mix something with it so you can tolerate the sting.

“Cayenne has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds. For example, when a 90-year-old man in Oregon had a severe heart attack, his daughter was able to get Cayenne extract into his mouth. He was pronounced dead by the medics, but within a few minutes, he regained consciousness. On the way to the hospital, he remained in a semi-conscious state, but the daughter kept giving him the Cayenne extract. By the time they got to the hospital, he had fully recovered and wanted to go home and mow the lawn. The doctor asked what she had given him, as he said it was the closest thing to a miracle he had ever seen.” www.cleanse.net/cayenne_and_health.HTM

In fact I have seen and heard many such testimonials, including one from my best friend!!


Do you know of any mechanism by which this could possibly work? Have any knowledge or experience of it?

Thank you kindly for the quote dear Loquat. I believe the cayenne pepper works exactly the same way as GTN or Glyceryl Trinitrate (TNT), which has for generations been prescribed as a treatment for angina. It is a powerful vasodilator (Blood vessel exposed develops bigger diameter) which allows blood to pass by the obstructions in the blood vessels in greater quantities, preventing the ultimate death of the cells supplied by those blood vessels.

Look at the face of a person after a hefty dose of cayenne pepper: They become almost as red as the pepper itself! This is due to more blood in the skin which in turn is due to larger diameters of the blood vessels.

Incidentally, the way GTN works is by paralyzing the muscles in the blood vessel walls themselves. Thus the pressure inside cause it to "blow up" like a balloon and allows so much more blood flow.

Unfortunately anecdotal observations may often not represent a causal relationship as there are just so many factors involved.

Personally I prefer to stick with ethical medicine as, for example, different harvests of cayenne pepper may have different potencies and even different content.. thus we cannot rely on it in all cases. But if that is what you have, well, it's a lot better than nothing! And if it keeps on working, well, as "they" say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof.

Doctor and Loquat I hope I am not speaking out of turn here but I think the Doctor is right re Cayenne pepper. I take a lot of it and then recently found an organic source which ended up being twice as hot as the one that I get from Tesco or Waitrose. You can imagine what it did to me. Put it this way I didn't need to add any tomatoes to the dish. On a more serious note Dr Hammer "New German Medicine" has found another way to prevent a heart attack and stroke. When you feel that you may be in the throws of a heart attack or a stroke even better if people around you are privy to this method. A bag of cold ice just above the right temple (don't quote me go direct to source) will prevent it. I also heard it mention that some nurses who are familiar with Dr Hammer's work use this technique in hospitals.

Does it have to be cayenne? Habaneras are ten times hotter.

Thanks David. Dear Kaypeeoh, the clinical effects of the pepper is not necessarily directly proportional to the "hotness" (Scoville Scale). There are numerous other substances involved. It's practically only we Allopathic practitioners who try to simplify matters down to one chemical at a time.

@ Doc. - Thx for the explanation. Makes a lot of sense, and I shoudda known. I'd already listed capsaicin (assuming this contains the active ingredient) as a circulation booster in another thread.

@ David - Didn't know about the ice trick, but if you're struck down, say, away from home, ice might be harder to find than a tiny bottle of cayenne oil extract that you could easily carry with you.

@ KP - The Carolina Reaper is 10x hotter still - over 1.5 million on the Scoville scale. That's even hotter than Kim Kardashian, & prob. enough to wake the dead. Bearing in mind this is the oil extract of cayenne pepper we are talking about, which probably contains a concentration of the capsaicinoids, then I think you'll find it has more than enough heat to do the job if that was the only consideration.
