Default Cayenne pepper to stop bleeding??



Advertise Here

I didn't know about this until I sliced my finger open with a razor blade when laying some flooring and my neighbor who is a nurse offered this...I didn't have the guts to do it as I HATE really hot peppers.
After reading about it online I thought I would ask anyone here if they have tried this? In fact, here is some reading I found about the pepper...

Claims from another read stated it helped much better than aspirin during a heart attack {claims of stopping them} to fixing stomach issues {lining of the stomach} which I don't understand since it messes mine up

I remember as a kid having black pepper sprinkled on a nasty scrape to help it scab over.
I guess I survived it.

The Chinese used peppercorns to fight off infection.

My mom swears it works but I donīt know.... Think Iīd rather bleed out than sticking an open wound in to a bowl of cayenne pepper...

Cayenne has been used as a remedy for a number of ailments for many years. I came across this journal entry a while ago from Priddy Meeks who was a Frontier doctor in the Utah Territory around the 1870's and used cayenne to cure frostbite:

Quote:
An incident took place in Parowan, Iron County, the same winter that Colonel Johnston came against Salt Lake City with the United States Army. There was a teamster by the name of James McCann, a young man, started to go back to the states by way of California. He reached Parowan with both feet frozen above his ankles. He was left with me to have both feet amputated as it was thought there was no possible chance to save his life without amputation. I was at my wits end to know what to do. I saw no possible chance for amputation. An impulse seemed to strike my mind as tho by inspiration that I would give him cayenne pepper inwardly and see what effect that would have on the frozen feet.

I commenced by giving him rather small doses at first, about three times a day. It increased the warmth and power of action in the blood to such a degree that it gave him such pain and misery in his legs that he could not bear it. He lay down on his back and elevated his feet up against the wall for three or four days and then he could sit up in a chair. The frozen flesh would rot and rope down from his foot when it would be on his knee, clear down to the floor, just like a buck-wheat batter, and the new flesh would form as fast as the dead flesh would get out of the way. In fact the new flesh would seem to crowd the dead flesh out of the way to make room for the new flesh.

That was all the medical treatment he had and to my astonishment and to every one else that knew of the circumstances, the sixteenth day after I gave him the first dose of pepper he walked nine miles, or from Parowan to Red Creek and back, and said that he could have walked as far again. He lost but five toe nails all told. Now the healing power of nature is in the blood and to accelerate the healing power of nature and I am convinced that there is nothing will do this like cayenne pepper; you will find it applicable in all cases of sickness.

Default I dunno...

That pepper is a dialator... It opens veins... So probably has many medicinal uses.. Like blood presure regulation but I don't know if I'd put it a wound to stop bleeding... Mainly because it has to sting, and secondly because I think it would likely givin the vein dialation properties make bleeding worse... I've heard black powder is good to stop bleeding and for penitrating wounds that are so hard to apply good pressure to there's tampax

I cut myself rather deeply while trying to make something out of an empty tin can. I put pressure on the cut to initially stop the bleeding then spread the cut open and shook black pepper into the wound from a table shaker. I had hear it stops bleeding and was antiseptic in nature and would promote rapid healing. I imagined it would burn but it didn't. However, it did hurt because the grains of pepper were as grains of sand. I sprinkled pepper into a spoon then ground it to a fine dust with another spoon. I poured this pepper dust into the wound, and it didn't sting, surprisingly. I don't know that it healed any faster, but it never got infected. It did scab over quickly though. I see no reason why cayenne shouldn't work. TP

Here is the info from E-how....
***In addition to stopping the bleeding from exterior wounds, cayenne also works for internal hemorrhages inside the nose, stomach and throat. In these cases, of course, the cayenne must be taken orally. Cayenne also works to improve blood circulation, assist digestion, stimulate perspiration and saliva, and lessen pain from swollen or arthritic joints and limbs. ****
I would think that it would burn like heck too..I was too scared to try it

Ain't no way I'm putting cayenne up my nose. I got sprayed with pepper spray as part of a course. Lesson learned!

I heard of it recently and tried it when I gashed the top of my thumb. Not bad enough for stitches but enough to start dripping on the carpet.

I put some on the cut (about 3/8" long) and it soaked up enough blood to stop it from dripping and it stopped bleeding pretty quickly.

It didn't really burn but then again, it already hurt from gashing it open.

I also got a copy of a report that claimed you can stop a heart attack by drinking a glass of water with a teaspoon of cayenne mixed into it. *This is not to be construed as medical advice.*

We use Alum on birds and dogs when we quick them. Works good. Alum is a baking spice it's white. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alum
Another item you can use is quick clot. You can buy in in the nail clipper isle at pet smart/pet co. etc. it works instantly.

I have heard of it. But I thought you were supposed to mix it in water and drink it down, Not dip your finger in the pepper.

My Father years ago came into my home with a Huge deep Gash on a finger. He ran to my sink and ran cold water over it. It was bleeding badly. I got the Cayenne pepper out and poured half a jar on it.after a few seconds the blood stopped. I asked him if it burned and he said no....Yep....It works!

Maybe the burn in only related to your tongue?? I do recall the burning I got from trying to make my own pepper sauce..lol.. boiling peppers I grew with the vinegar and not opening some windows...I was cussed by the wife all night for that one...felt like someone blew a pepper bomb off in the house
I don't get how the pepper can help with stomach issues when it causes the issues??? I have acid reflux and LOVE all the stuff that hates me to eat..lol
