From http://humansarefree.com/2015/04/how-to-stop-bleeding-in-10-seconds-with.html

-----------------------------------
If you’ve cut yourself, one of the best remedies for cuts is believe it or not: Cayenne Pepper! Cayenne can be applied to open wounds or even taken orally to stop bleeding.

Nosebleeds, deep cuts, even arterial gushing will stop within seconds. Cayenne pepper allows cuts to clot quickly so you can keep all your blood inside your body, where it belongs.

How to Stop Bleeding in 10 Seconds with Cayenne Pepper

Just sprinkle organic cayenne powder on cuts, scrapes and abrasions to stop bleeding. Contrary to what you might think, it does not burn.

A poultice of Cayenne wrapped around a wound will ensure safe healing and will often not even leave a scar!

You can also stop internal wounds from bleeding by drinking a cup of hot water with a teaspoon of cayenne stirred into it.
---------------------------------------------------------
This is priceless info., Jim.
A few months ago we had a bleeding emergency here on the farm.  A goat whose horn was beginning to poke him in the eye had to have a bit of that horn sawed off.  Horns of goats, and probably most animals are very sensitive to pain, etc., as they are directly connected to the brain and full of nerves.  But losing an eye is serious.

So hubby sawed and sawed, carefully, but still the bleeding began and continued a while.  Finally after many phone calls, scouring the books, we packed it with plain white flour which did the trick.  BUT, I prefer the cayenne.  Dried, powdered yarrow would work also, but I like the idea of cayenne, as it requires a lesser amount, plus it is more versatile than about any other coagulent.

After reading this, I decided to grow cayenne peppers again.

There is a statement in a recent Mother Earth News article entitled "Grow Thse NUTRITIOUS CROP VARIETIES", by author Jo Robinson, beginning on page 37 of the February/March 2015 issue.

The statement is:  "In a 2009 test-tube study published in the European Journal of Pharmaceutical Science, the phytonutrient quercetin, which is present in apples and onions, killed a flu virus more effectively than the prescription drug Tamiflu.

That is certainly food for thought!

The Magical Medicinal Properties Of Cayenne Pepper For Cancer, Digestion, Heart Disease & More

Posted by: Ty Bollinger in Cancer 101, Foods, Herbs, Nutrition, The Basics

What if there was a common household spice that could rebuild the gut wall to improve digestion, destroy cancer cells, stop a heart attack in its tracks and was useful for weight loss? I’m assuming you’d want to know more about it, right?
The hot fruit of the cayenne plant (“capsicum annuum”) has been used as a superb culinary spice for centuries and may be the most valuable medicinal herb in the entire plant kingdom for many of the reasons mentioned above !
High in vitamins A, C, B complex, calcium and potassium, studies have shown that cayenne can rebuild the tissue in the stomach and the peristaltic action in the intestines. Moreover, cayenne acts as a catalyst and increases the effectiveness of other herbs and alternative cancer treatments.
Have you ever gone after the chips and salsa with gusto and then felt flushed while your nose started to run a little bit? Cayenne warms the body and stimulates the release of mucus from the respiratory passages. If you’ve ever eaten a fresh hot pepper, you know it clears the sinuses and causes sweating.
Cayenne peppers raise the body temperature as it stimulates circulation and blood flow to the skin. Herbs that promote fever and sweating are considered to have a diaphoretic (sweat-inducing) action which helps reduce fever and relieves the congestion of colds and sinusitis.

The active ingredient in cayenne is called capsaicin and in 2004, Dr. Sanjay K. Srivastava and colleagues (University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine) treated pancreatic cells with capsaicin. They found that it disrupted mitochondrial function and induced apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancerous cells without affecting normal pancreatic cells!
The results of the study were published in the April 20, 2005, issue of Innovations Report, in which Dr. Srivastava stated: “Our results demonstrate that capsaicin is a potent anticancer agent, induces apoptosis in cancer cells and produces no significant damage to normal pancreatic cells, indicating its potential use as a novel chemotherapeutic agent for pancreatic cancer”

In an article published in Reuters on March 16, 2006, entitled, “Hot Pepper Kills Prostate Cancer Cells in Study,” Dr. Soren Lehmann of the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the UCLA School of Medicine asserted: “Capsaicin had a profound anti-proliferative effect on human prostate cancer cells in culture. It caused 80% of the prostate cancer cells growing in mice to commit suicide in a process known as apoptosis.” Researchers in Japan have also shown that cayenne pepper can dramatically slow the development of prostate tumors, and is an excellent addition to alternative cancer treatment for this type of cancer.
And if cayenne’s cancer-fighting capabilities weren’t enough, its effects upon the venous structure and heart are nothing short of miraculous. Cayenne is incredibly nourishing to the heart and has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds.  If you want something in your first aid kit for a heart attack, carry cayenne tincture.

According to Dr. John R. 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.”
In addition to being a welcome addition, there’s also evidence to suggest that cayenne may be useful in the treatment of obesity. Results of one trial showed that consumption of 10 grams of cayenne pepper with meals helped to reduce appetite, while results of another revealed that cayenne increases the metabolism of dietary fats. Lastly, herbalists from centuries past would pour cayenne pepper directly on fresh wounds in order to sterilize and stop bleeding.

Many of us (over 90%) have worms or different parasites in our systems. One simple way to get rid of them is to have a “cayenne drink” daily. Fill up a glass with water or juice and then add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. Stir it up and then “down the hatch.” Yes, it’s a bit spicy, but you’ll get used to it.
As you can see, the amazing curative powers of cayenne are almost mind-boggling. Clearly, it is  a “wonder herb” that has scientifically proven its worth!  According to Dr. Richard Schulze, “If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other.”
On a personal note, I take cayenne pepper every day as part of my nutritional regimen and a “preventative” cancer treatment. I also keep a cayenne tincture in the house and in both cars … just in case!
Hopefully this provides you with a good overview of the many amazing medicinal uses of cayenne and you put this information to good use. Until next time, may God bless you.

How To Make a Natiural Antibacterial Hand Sanitizer
How to Make Rosemary Hand Sanitizer

Put 1/4 cup fresh leaves of rosemary in a glass or stainless steel pan. Pour 2 cups of filtered water over the leaves and bring the heat up until the water is almost boiling. Remove the pan from the heat, cover it, and let the leaves steep for 20 minutes. Next, pour the rosemary-infused water into a spray bottle. I use small reusable spray bottles that fit nicely in my purse, car, lunch containers or wherever else I may need to keep some.

In Reply #48 I posted about black seed, nigella sativa. Huge doses are not recommended. Not studied or recommended for pregnant women.  Too much contact with skin can cause soreness. Read the Livestrong article to gain a bit more info. I would like to know more where to draw the line on useage because it is supposed to be a preventative for Alzheimers.

Thanks for posting this, and also for questioning the potential toxicity of concentrated seed oil.

After reading it, the entire phenomenon reminds me of "wormseed", not to be confused with "wormwood", both of which are used for de-worming in some livestock.  Wormseed, Chenopodium anthelmenticum, is more powerful, and was at one time commercially grown, and oil extracted from the seeds, and was sold for the veterinary purpose of deworming.  But the oil is very potent and can be lethal, so www.botanical.com recommends that the leaves, stems and seeds can be used by the layperson, usually without the toxic effects of concentrated oils.

I do this with wormseed, for deworming the goats.  I distilled the oil in a "table-top" distiller, but have been too afraid to use it, and instead gather the leaves, stems, and flowerheads, dry them, then when needed pulverize them for use in the deworming process. 

In reading that black seed is used in both food and medicine, maybe the best thing to do is use the seeds, whole or ground, but not to use the extracted oil unless you are certain of all aspects of its use.  If a person wanted to make a salve, it could be made of finely ground seed, rather than the extracted oil, until more is learned about it.

Mohamed said that black seed is the cure for everything except death.  I take half teaspoonful of whole seeds daily Mon~Fri.  They come out of the other end still whole.  No problem so far.

Jimfarmer - :) it is wonderful to get some feedback on this and an idea how much of the black seed I can take. I do intend to take it.
I like the quote from Mohamed, too!

ilinda - good idea... I was also thinking I would avoid the oil for now and take the seeds. :)
