Using Cayenne Pepper to Stop Bleeding! You Won't Believe This!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Believe it or not it stops the bleeding AMAZINGLY fast.

And it does not burn or sting!

All you need to do is to pour the cayenne pepper powder directly onto the cut or laceration.

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.

Dr. John Christopher recommends:

“…take a teaspoonful of cayenne in a glass of extra-warm water, drink it down, and by the count of ten, the bleeding will stop. Instead of all the pressure being centralized, it is equalized, and the clotting becomes more rapid. Whether the bleeding is internal or external, a teaspoon of cayenne taken orally in a a glass of hot water will stop the bleeding quickly.” (paragraph from the book School of Natural Healing)

How Does Cayenne Pepper Stop Bleeding?

Cayenne Pepper is high in Vitamin K – the vitamin that coagulates the blood. It is the powdered vitamin that was given to soldiers in WWII to pour over the wound in case they were shot.

Most sources say that cayenne pepper reacts with the body to equalize the blood pressure, meaning an extra gushing of pressure will not be concentrated in the wound area as it normally is. Blood will quickly clot when the pressure is equalized. I personally don’t understand this mechanism…

In addition to stopping bleeding, cayenne pepper is a great herb to disinfect the wound because it posses anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

After the bleeding stops you can add a plantain bondage. Cayenne pepper works for small and medium cuts. Call 911 if you have a life- threatening hemorrhage (including liver, femoral, heart, lungs, jugular areas).

      “It does not burn or sting” Well, you sir can pay the medical bills for everyone that has a heart attack from the shock of the pretty severe pain. It most assuredly DOES “burn and sting”. It also does stop the bleeding, but damn, don’t use as much as in that photo.. I’ve bveen a life extension student for well over 20 years now .. although for persoinal realsons (including the wxhoebitant expense) I no longer practice it , I still know enough to take issue at this . Cayenne IS good for acute bleeding , in emergencies, but if you’re prone to excessive bleeding, better to have a shake heavy in dark leafy greens …

      All surfers should have a pound of Starwest Botanicals cayenne powder in the car. Who know when you’ll need it for someone! VitacostDOTcom has it the cheapest. It’s a must have for all cars!

      how much more effective is this than any other dry hygroscopic powder that easily absorbs any liquid?

      like… chalk

      also if you have a gaping gunshot wound… you need a ton load of pepper… cause it won’t stop the gushing by regulating the blood pressure…. since you have a hole leaks out blood
