Cuts are part of our everyday’s life, but sometimes we’re just unable to stop the bleeding. Young parents usually freak out after they see this tiny cut on their child’s knee or arm. We have the perfect solution to your reddish nightmare, and it won’t cost you a thing. It’s a bit spicy though.
Cayenne pepper is something you add to your savory dishes. But, did you know that it can stop your bleeding within 10 seconds? Experts swear on its efficacy on both minor and deep cuts. It works well on open wounds, too.
“Long hailed as a miracle-working substance, cayenne pepper can stop bleeding in less than one minute under most circumstances.
The reason it works is because 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,” eHow explains.
Cayenne normalizes blood pressure, and stimulates the clotting process. Apply it topically or just swallow it. However, make sure you consult a professional before trying any of the methods, especially if your cut is serious.
“…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 glass of hot water will stop the bleeding quickly,” Dr. John Christopher writes in his book School of Natural Healing.
It may be hard for you to believe, but oral application does miracles, too.
Cayenne soothes infections that develop in minor cuts due to its antibacterial effect. It destroys dangerous bacteria, and stops them from entering the body.
