I'm sure many of you here are going to start talking to me about how terribly bad both of these are, and maybe how even Organic Cayenne is not raw. Still, I've been taking a lot more cayenne lately, and garlic too. Although not always everyday (I'm still working my way up there). Now, I'm able to have 1 tsp. of cayenne powder (90,000 Heat Units) at one time. I just gulp it down, with a little water. I'm finding that it actually feels really good on my throat... once I've gotten used to it. Although many would say that it irritates the stomach and such, I can personally say that it's helped me a lot! It is very warming and it increases circulation. Its actually been used to stop heart attacks and strokes!
And today, I read that the Guinness world record on garlic is 13 cloves in one minute. I thought that was quite sad, esp. considering that it was most likely small softneck garlic from china. Anyhow, I tried it. I only had Organic hardneck garlic (from my work), and they were big cloves. I was only able to get down 8 (chewing throughly though as I had a hard time swallowing when they are not chewed for some reason). However, these were big cloves. I think if they were softneck, I would of beaten this guy's record by at least 3-5 cloves.
At any rate, I feel great! No heart burn or anything. So, I'm curious... does any of you guys take lots of cayenne and/or garlic? Once you've gotten used to it, are you happy with the health benefits as I am?
My younger sister (14 years old), had a stroke at the age of 2 (because we were living in a house that had deadly (stackibotricks) mold in it... and sorry I can't spell it). Well, she still has problems with her arm because of that. And she does not always think right. And kind of limps. I know that it is largely a problem with circulation, and I told her that if she takes Cayenne (3/4 tsp, 3 times a day) for 30 days, that I'll give her $10. Its her challenge. And she is awefully afraid of cayenne, but I think she will do it... so I hope it will help her.
Thanks and God Bless!!
