Do you know what to do if a loved one had a heart attack? Most people would respond and say that they would call 911. But the average wait time for an ambulance is 10-15 minutes. What happens during that small amount of time is the difference between life and death.
With alternative medicine on the rise, more and more people are trying out different foods/herbs/spices to heal and treat ailments. One in particular, that can be found in most people’s homes, can be used to treat a heart attack.
That powerful ingredient is cayenne pepper. Popular herbalist John Christopher is the alternative medicine expert who discovered this little secret. He discovered this by first testing out 50 other herbal formulas. In the end, cayenne pepper was the most effective formula that could stop a heart attack in under a minute.
Cayenne Pepper is the most well-known chili pepper of its kind. Broken down, this hot pepper contains at least 90,000 Scoville units, which is basically a type of measurement that gauges how hot a particular food item is.
If someone is suddenly having a heart attack, and they are still conscious, give the person a glass of water mixed with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. If the person falls unconscious, cayenne pepper extract can still do the trick as long as you put a few drops under their tongue.
By using the pepper, it will increase the person’s heart rate, while it can also carry all of the blood to all parts of their body. This will actually balance their circulation out, which can give them those extra precious minutes they need to subside the attack at least until help arrives.
Cayenne pepper costs less than $5.00 at your local supermarket. It might be a good idea just to have some on hand, as you never know when an emergency might strike. It also would be a good idea to have a note on your refrigerator with directions on what to do with the pepper in the case of an emergency situation.
