How to Stop A Heart Attack Within Minutes
A Historical Wonder
Capsicum, or cayenne pepper, is historically associated with Columbus, who is credited with introducing the fruit to Europe. However, long before Columbus arrived in the New World, capsicum has already been used for thousands of years by Native Americans. The Mayans used them to treat coughs, asthma and sore throats. Once discovered, chili became instantly popular and spread through many different countries. Starting in the 19th century, capsicum was used as a local stimulant, counter-irritant and pain reliever. Cayenne is full of antioxidants and is great at lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Current research has revealed that capsicum is also effective in preventing heart attacks.
Heart Attacks Statistics
Heart disease facts are both startling and disturbing. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 600 thousand people die every year of heart disease in America. That is almost 1 out of every 4 deaths. Heart disease is the leading cause of preventable death in America. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease and kills almost 400 thousand people every year. Finally, almost 800 million Americans have a heart attack every year.
Heart Attacks and Capsicum
A heart attack, or myocardial infarction, happens when a part of the heart muscle is damaged or died because of reduced blood supply. Coronary artery disease is the primary cause of a heart attack. Dr. John Christopher, a renowned 20th century herbalist pioneer, famously noted that he successfully treated heart attacks for 35 years with cayenne tea. According to WedMD.com, capsicum is useful for treating heart and blood vessel conditions, such as poor circulation, excessive blood clotting, high cholesterol, and preventing heart disease.
How Cayenne Pepper Can Stop a Heart Attack
Heart attacks occur due to constricted blood vessels damaging the heart muscles. Cayenne acts as a vasodilator and allows blood flow to the heart to resume through opening the arteries. Cayenne also prevents the formation of blood clots because of it’s effect on blood platelet aggregation. Therefore, the natural anticoagulant effect of cayenne pepper has excellent benefits for the heart.
How to Use Cayenne Pepper during a Heart Attack
In order to be effective, the cayenne pepper must have at least 90 thousand heat units. Mix 1 teaspoon of cayenne powder in a glass of warm water and have the conscious person drink it. If the person is unconscious, place a few drops of cayenne extract under the tongue.
What Doctor’s Say about Cayenne
Cayenne’s traditional uses, such as for pain relief, have been studied and verified. However, there is limited empirical research about using capsicum to treat heart attacks. Most doctors are skeptical of capsicum, just as they are skeptical about any treatment outside of surgery, elaborate tests and prescription pills. Capsicum has been used for thousands of years to successfully improve and prevent heart problems.
In conclusion, capsicum is an excellent source of nutrition and a reliable method to improve blood circulation and overall heart health.
