I came across info on one absolute super food/spice. for those who like hot food and consume a lot of it, you probably have very few health concerns!
i do believe cayenne caplets will be my new form of headache medicine until i get around to acupuncture and or reiki. cayenne is a staple product for weight control. it also interacts with your endorphins/natural happy brain chemicals to alleviate the blues. i am not overly keen on hot foods so it has definitely taken me extra time to come to this knowledge. and sweet red peppers are a very good source for energy kicks.

I will definately try the Cayenne Peppers for headaches... I get sinus headaches often.
Interestingly, durning both of my pregnancies, peppers were the big craving. With my daughter, I put Jalepeno's on EVERYTHING. Every meal had to have Jalepenos. With my son, it was fire roasted bell peppers, red and green... I was very fortunate at the time to be working in a Greek Rest. and had daily access.
Now, being a vegitarian for all of 3 weeks, the love of peppers has resurfaced. I have bought jars of fire roasted red bell peppers, jalapenos, and green chili peppers. There are many more fresh varieties in the fridge. I also talked a local group that works with the Latino/Hispanic community into purchasing the equiptment to fire roast chilis to use as a fundraiser... I am beginning to think the motives may have been more personal than I would like to think...:p

The first round of cayenne pepper i got was 35,000 heat units. the only other bulk cayenne the health store i go to offers is 90,000 heat units.
i went for the 90,000 and am mixing it with dried cilantro leaves. cilantro is good for removing heavy metal toxins. oh my God 90,000 is potent!.
where do most heavy metals come from?: it is very likely that there is mercury in vaccines. and in amalgram, not silver fillings, and can be found in albacore tuna. aluminum, found in anti-perspirants, is a heavy metal and anti-perspirant also blocks the bodies natural attempt to remove toxins. if you care, sample the deodorants that are available until you find what works for you best, and ditch the anti-perspirants.
i have also been experimenting with household shampoo, i currently use egg (cholesterol and protein is great for hair) and orange extract. so far, i have come to the conclusion most commercial shampoos/hair products strips hair and absolutely should not be used every day. children definitely do not need shampoo. i've been using an aloe vera mixture i have on my kids.
Cheers to natural health!,

I use capsicum oleoresin, cayenne (A Sun oil, by the way) in my Rhumatoid arthritis formula and a couple others. Its very good for stimulating circulation externally as a massage oil. My Rhuemacare is good for the types of pain that respond well to heat. Osteocare is cold. Cayenne is also good for the digestive track. I use it in place of black pepper, although more sparingly. I puree jalapeno's and other herbs like parsley and greek oregano, mix in cream cheese and mayo, spread on a large tortilla shell, top with another shell, spread with guacamoli, roll, freeze slightly to firm up, slice and presto: pretty, flavorful hors' deuvers. That filling, minus the jalapenos, makes a good stuffing for jalapeno halves also, for those braver souls.
