Did you know that you can actually stop a heart attack in its tracts with the simple but amazing and awesome power of cayenne pepper? It's true. Cayenne pepper can actually stop a heart attack in about 60 seconds flat!
Famed healers such as Dr.John Christopher, N.D., and Dr. Richard Schulze, N.D., sang the praises of Cayenne pepper. Dr. John Christopher "In 35 years of practice, and working with the people and teaching, I have never on house calls lost one heart attack patient and the reason is, whenever I go in--if they are still breathing--I pour down them a cup of cayenne tea (a teaspoon of cayenne in a cup of hot water, and within minutes they are up and around)"
It should be noted that these men, and many other healers like them, were speaking from personal experience and not speculation when referring to this powerful plant.
So what are the best practices in using Cayenne pepper based upon the voice and experiences of those that have actually used it?
First the Cayenne pepper must be at least 90,000 heat units or 90,000 (H.U.) to be able to stop a heart attack. If the cayenne is at least 90,000 H.U. and the person is still conscious, the recommendation is to mix one teaspoon of cayenne powder in a glass of warm water (this is essentially a "cayenne tea"), and give it to the person to drink.
If the person is unconscious then the recommendation is to use a cayenne tincture or extract, again of at least 90,000 H.U., and put a couple of full droppers underneath their tongue full strength. As noted above by Dr. Christopher, in 35 years of practice he never lost even one heart attack case if the person was still breathing when he arrived, and he attributed this to the prudent use of the cayenne pepper.
Other Uses Of Cayenne
One of the most profitable uses of cayenne pepper is as a catalyst in other herbal combinations. As a general rule it should be added to almost all herbal combinations with the exception of those classified as nervines (combinations made specifically for nerve issues). Because it has a stimulating effect upon the body, it speeds the circulation thereby causing it to enhance digestion as well as absorption. Therefore it can enhance or increase the effectiveness of practically any herbal formula.
In fact it is often used this way in formulas for arthritis, various female complaints, infections, heart or circulatory issues, laxatives, diuretics, ulcers, thyroid issues etc.
Nutritional Profile of Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne has at least 26 different nutrients! It contains minerals such as Zinc, Selenium, Calcium, and Magnesium. It also contains vitamins such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Additionally it boasts both "crude fiber" and "dietary fiber", as well as carbohydrates.
Cayenne certainly appears to be God's "Nitro-Glycerin" when it comes to heart attacks and one would be unwise to leave home without it.

Lemongrass May Help Fight Cancer
Researchers at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel discovered a few years ago that the lemon aroma in herbs, such as lemongrass, kills cancer cells in vitro, while leaving healthy cells unharmed.
According to Dr. Rivka Ofir from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at BGU, the study found that citral, the key component that gives the lemony aroma and taste, causes cancer cells to “commit suicide” in a process called apoptosis, a mechanism called programmed cell death.
Experiments showed that a drink with as little as 1gm lemongrass contains enough citral to prompt the cancer cells to self-destruct in the test tube.
The success of the study led the research team to the conclusion that herbs containing citral may be consumed as a preventative measure against certain cancerous cells. Many physicians in Israel believed that while the research needed to be explored further, in the meantime it would be advisable for patients to try to harness the cancer-destroying properties of citral.
Aside from this remarkable possibility, lemongrass has been used for centuries by herbalist as an effective digestive tonic and nervous system relaxant. Lemongrass oil is also used to help clear blemishes and maintain a balanced skin tone.

Preventing Cancer with Pineapple
According to researchers at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia, preventing cancer may be as simple as eating pineapple. While analyzing bromelain, an extract of crushed pineapple stems, scientist found that two molecules isolated from the extract showed promise in fighting cancer growth.
One molecule known as CCS blocks a protein called Ras, which is detective in approximately 30% of all cancers. The other, called CCZ, stimulates the body’s own immune system to target and destroy cancer cells. Together, these molecules work to block the growth of a broad range of tumor cells, including breast, lung, colon, ovarian and melanoma.
Furthermore, bromelain is a rich source of enzymes that has been found to modulate immunological response, and has been proposed to be of clinical use.
