Would you know what to do if your loved one suddenly reached for their chest and hinted they was having a heart attack? Sure, you know you are supposed to call 911 right away, but what would you do in the 10 – 15 minutes it would take for them to arrive at your residence? Although it is a scary thought, rest assure, as one ingredient that you probably already have in your pantry as we speak, can assist you.
Alternative medicine is on the rise as many people do not like using products that have harmful chemicals or that aren’t naturally grown from the soil of the earth. Whether you see eye to eye with this branch of medicine or not, a discovery has been made that can help you and yours, if ever you are facing a situation where someone close to you is having a heart attack.
Most people are unaware that a simple but powerful pantry ingredient can stop a heart attack in under a minute. This is important because even if you call 911, those minutes you are waiting for emergency services to arrive are delicate ones. Also, your loved one may need something done right this second to stop the attack from getting worse before help arrives. Knowing there is one powerful ingredient that could help save them, wouldn’t you want to know about it so you always have some on hand?
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.
