A Constipation Home Remedy – Cayenne

Cayenne is a constipation home remedy that is effective in producing peristalsis in your colon and aids digestion. It can be used regularly at every meal and when needed for constipation.  Cayenne pepper is known to help thin the blood.  So, it is good for improving blood circulation. Obviously if you are on blood thinners check with your physician before trying this out.

Cayenne is available in capsules of different strengths, from 5,000 heat units (HU) to 100,000 and even higher.   In addition, cayenne when used with other herbs helps to deliver these herbs more efficiently to where they are needed in the body.

As a constipation home remedy, start with one capsule of 40,000 HU and always take it after you eat.  You may feel a hot or slight warming feeling in the upper stomach and that ís when you know it’s working.  The feeling may be like when you get heartburn.  This warming sensation will pass as your body gets use to you using cayenne.

However, if you find it too uncomfortable lower the dose till you can better cope with the cayenne. There is no point taking something to deal with an uncomfortable situation if it is just going to cause another, so be sensible and just build up slowly.

Do not use cayenne seeds, as they can be toxic.  If you are pregnant or breast-feeding do not take cayenne supplements until you have cleared this with your doctor- no exceptions.

Use cayenne only as directed on its container and only as capsules.

Some say that Cayenne has the ability to block the ulcer producing effect of NSAIDS.  It also has shown to increase the body’s absorption of theophylline, a drug used to treat asthma. However, we cannot answer that here, so always check with your doctor if you want to cayenne and are taking medications.

In his book, Left for Dead, Dick Quinn tells how Cayenne pepper saved his life after coronary bypass surgery failed to restore it.

In this book, Shannon Quinn, says,

‘One of the most effective stimulants, mostly, cayenne targets the digestive and the circulatory system.  Cayenne regulates blood pressure, strengthens the pulse, feeds the heart, lowers cholesterol, and thins the blood.  It cleanses the circulatory system, heals ulcers, stops haemorrhaging, speeds healing of wounds, rebuilds damaged tissue, eases congestion, aids digestion, regulates elimination, relieves arthritis and rheumatism, prevents the spread of infection and numbs pain.’

Of course, these are other people’s experiences and yours may well be different. Always use the recommended dose shown on the bottle of cayenne you use.

You can also add cayenne pepper into other foods.  Add cayenne to soups, salads, and other foods you like.

In soups or salads break open a cayenne capsule and mix it in.  You can add 1 – 2 capsules, but first start with 1/4 or 1/2 capsule so you can get use to the hot taste.  As stated earlier start slowly.

Use this constipation home remedy and you will see results.  It definitely has the power to eliminate constipation and keep you regular and has many other benefits, especially for your heart.

Just start slow, go steady and ensure you are cleared to take it by a doctor.
