Good morning, Dear Readers,
It's a beautiful sunny day here, and we're about to head out to the garden again (in fact, we've already harvested some peas and turnips for breakfast), but I thought I'd share a little information I've learned first hand.
While studying to become a Master Herbalist, through the School of Natural Healing, I learned the wonders of Cayenne pepper for circulation and checking bleeding. I must say it is wonderful (although a bit uncomfortable) sprinkled on a deep cut; the bleeding stops almost instantly. Supposedly, one tablespoon of Cayenne administered in warm water will keep a heart attack from being fatal, as well, but we've not had experience with that one (thank the Lord).
But recently, I've been suffering from varicose veins which were almost debilitating. I would hobble around in the morning, and by the afternoon my legs felt like they were made out of lead.
I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before, but I remembered the cayenne, and started taking 1/3 teaspoon, two times a day this past week, and it has made a BIG difference! Enormous is probably a better word. The veins are still swollen, but the congested blood is moving through, and I can do almost anything I could normally.
We are so blessed with a kind Heavenly Father who has given us these simple, wonderful herbs for food and medicine! I feel very blessed to have been exposed to this knowledge, and hope that you will give it a try in your family as well.
Love to you all,
p.s. I forgot to mention to that homemade salsa with lots of garlic and cayenne is a great way to break up a cold!
