Welcome to “A healthy you,” your comprehensive feature for known and unknown information on natural healing and treatment of major and minor illnesses.

Many societies have long used herbs, flowers, roots, spices and foods in general to stay healthy and heal themselves from common ailments and severe diseases. Ours is no different but we have been bombarded with western synthetic medicines. This has caused us to forget power which lies in the medicine contained in the many foods which grow naturally from mother earth.

This week, Cayenne Pepper is taking the spotlight.

Cayenne Pepper has been used therapeutically for decades in places like Asia & India. It is a powerful compound with many uses, and it is currently gaining buzz for its cleansing and detoxifying purposes. It stimulates circulation and neutralises acidity in the body, and has been used for a variety of ailments including heartburn, fever, flatulence, sore throat,  nausea, tonsillitis, and others. Here are some specific health benefits of consuming Cayenne Pepper.

– Anti-Irritant Properties

Cayenne has the ability to ease upset stomach, ulcers, sore throats, spasmodic and irritating coughs, and diarrhoea.

– Anti-Cold and Flu Agent

Cayenne pepper aids in breaking up and moving congested mucus. Once mucus begins to leave the body, relief from flu symptoms generally follows.

– Anti-Fungal Properties

The results of one study indicated that Cayenne Pepper could effectively prevent formation the fungal pathogens phomopsis and collectotrichum

–  Migraine Headache Prevention

This may be related to the pepper’s ability to stimulate a pain response in a different area of the body, thus reverting the brain’s attention to the new site. Following this first pain reaction, the nerve fibers have a depleted substance P (the nerve’s pain chemical), and the perception of pain is lessened.

Cayenne stimulates the production of saliva, an important key to excellent digestion and maintaining optimal oral health.

– Useful 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.

– Joint-Pain Reliever

Extremely high in a substance called capsaicin, cayenne pepper acts to cause temporary pain on the skin, which sends chemical messengers from the skin into the joint, offering relief for joint pain.

– Anti-Bacterial Properties

Cayenne is an excellent preservative and has been used traditionally prevent food contamination from bacteria.

– Possible Anti-Cancer Agent

Studies done at the Loma Linda University in California found that cayenne pepper may help prevent lung cancer in smokers . This may be again related to cayenne’s high quantity of capsaicin, a substance that might help stop the formation of tobacco-induced lung tumors. Other studies have also shown a similar reaction in cayenne’s resistance to liver tumors.

– Supports Weight Loss

Scientists at the Laval University in Quebec found that participants who took cayenne pepper for breakfast were found to have less appetite, leading to less caloric intake throughout the day. Cayenne is also a great metabolic-booster, aiding the body in burning excess amounts of fats.

Cayenne is an excellent agent against tooth and gum diseases.

– Topical Remedy

As a poultice, cayenne has been used to treat snake bites, rheumatism, sores, wounds and lumbago.
