In reply to Michael of Sligo, Ireland. Cayenne pepper is one of those (genuinely) natural remedies that offers numerous benefits and almost no risks, and costs almost nothing compared to commercial and pharmaceutical medicines. So why don't you try it and please tell us how you go?

Remedy Numerous approaches
I'm a 75 year old male. Chronic Sciatica required numerous approaches. Inflammation control: These included daily magnesium baths (2 cups of Epsom Salts or magnesium chloride) mixed with borax (1.5 cups) in a warm bath for 30 to 60 minutes. A wakeup drink of 1/2 ounce to one-ounce DMSO mixed with 5 grams of MSM in 4 ounces of lukewarm distilled water (daily). An afternoon golden tea (teaspoon of turmeric, half-teaspoon of ginger, half-teaspoon of cinnamon, and teaspoon of 90,000 heat units of cayenne mixed together in 4 ounces of very warm (not hot) almond milk. Physical therapy: Twice daily, various stretches for the thighs, buttocks, and lower back plus strengthening exercises for the lower back. Daily walks of 5 to 6 kilometers (about 3-4 miles). Also twice daily, a "Teeter" board to hang up-side-down to decompress the vertebra. And finally: Organic whole foods, meditation, good sleep and avoidance of sitting any more than necessary. Two months, after implementing the above program, my chronic sciatica was cured. Plus, other problems like high blood pressure dropped from an average of 145/80 to 112/62 along with a nice reduction in weight and the waist size.

After a week of inactivity I began to have almost continuous chest pain. Even nattokinase and magnesium citrate on an empty stomach brought me no relief. I added a size 0 capsule full of cayenne pepper at 8 to 12 hour intervals and received relief from the first dose within 15 minutes. The pain only returned when I let 14 hours elapse without a dose of cayenne. After vomiting following an empty stomach capsule, I began taking it with food and had no further trouble. I'm sold on the value of cayenne for circulatory enhancement.

A daily dose of cayenne pepper will make a significant difference in lowering blood pressure. It acts as a blood thinner, and promotes good circulation
