How to Use Cayenne Pepper for Heart Attack Prevention
Cayenne pepper is among the hottest chili peppers in the world, scoring 90,000 on the Scoville scale.
Some chili peppers with the same value include habanero, Thai chi, Jamaican hot pepper, an African bird, Jalapeno and other pepper species.
To prevent heart attack, all you need to do is give the person suffering a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water.
One word of advice, the patient must be conscious for the remedy to work. If the patient is unconscious, another remedy is required.
For this case, you need cayenne pepper extract and you can put few drops under the tongue of the patient.
Since cayenne pepper is one of the most powerful stimulants, it will rapidly increase the heart rate of the patient and deliver blood to all vital organs of the body, all while balancing the circulation of the patient.
Your Home Tincture Cayenne Pepper Recipe
If you want to prepare a tincture for emergency cases, you can follow the instructions of Dr. Schulz.
For this tincture, you need cayenne pepper powder, few fresh cayenne peppers, some alcohol (50% alcohol works the best, and vodka is preferred since it does not have taste or color), 1-liter glass bottle, and gloves for safety.
You might ask why safety, but cayenne pepper is so hot, that touching it might cause burning sensation on your hands.
Now, to prepare the remedy, you need a quarter of a glass bottle filled with cayenne powder.
The next step is to pour in alcohol to cover the powder.
Get your blender or food processor, and mix up to three fresh cayenne peppers with alcohol to get a sauce-like consistency.
Add the sauce to the bottle, which will bring the bottle up to three-quarters full.
Top it off with alcohol and put a lid on. Shake the bottle and then leave the tincture in a dark place to stay for two weeks.
After that, strain it and you can use it. Make sure to always store the tincture in a dry and dark place so it doesn’t spoil.
How to Use the Tincture
According to Doctor Schulz, five to ten drops of the tincture is all it takes for the conscious patient to recover after a heart attack or stroke.
After five minutes, give the patient another five to ten drops of the tincture.
Make sure to repeat the treatment until the condition of the patient improves.
In a situation where the patient is unconscious, put few drops of the tincture under the tongue of the patient and give him/her CPR.
