I usually have pain and other problems in my head everyday(outside the scope of this topic), "pain & other problems in your head" may be outside the scope of this post, but they're certainly important! And knowing what the "pain & other problems in your head" are, will help you/me to figure you the best treatment options. but yesterday was particularly bad and frustrating so I got up and mixed a cup of water and cayenne powder to relieve it. I took more than what I'm adjusted to so the burn in my mouth was pretty good, but I actually enjoy that part a little. Anyways, it reduced the pain within a minute great!, but as soon as it hit my stomach it started burning/cramping.Yep, more than you've built up to will always do that. I highly suggest having a bottle of tincture around for using in situations like this...that way we can virtually always avoid anything but 'short lived' burning & cramping.Speaking of Cayenne tincture, how'd you like the Cayenne Tincture #2 & #3 samples?I've had this in the past when I was using 100,000 HU on a near empty stomach, but it usually took at least 30 mins before the cramping pain started, and Unyquity's cayenne is a lot stronger (and better). So I started eating carrots and drinking water to counter the cramps, as having something else in my stomach usually prevents or takes away the pain. Honestly, I've never taken more powder than I've "worked up to"...but I'd think you'd get much better results by eating something that might 'sponge up' the cayenne (like bread or crackers) or something 'mucousy' (of course, milk 'cuts the burn' better than anything, so if you had some on hand, that should be good,too). Of course, you're not supposedto have milk 'on hand', but if you did, that'd be an option.
Eventually I got it under control, but I felt tense/sore in my stomach/intestinal area, and by nighttime my whole tract all the way down felt tense and sore. Didn't eat much dinner because I felt nauseus when the food got down to my stomach. I woke up today and it still feels a little sore. Not too bad though. I haven't had any diarrhea though; in fact I haven't had any diarrhea from using it since I first started using cayenne months ago. I read some back posts and I'm in agreement in believing it is not caustic, so I think it's just irritated or perhaps a little inflammed. The cayenne also gave my kidneys a workout, If you could feel it in your kidneys, that's a sign your kidneys are overdue for a cleansing...and that your circulation is seriously needing some attention. Correct, cayenne is NOT "caustic" - it only gives the sensation of burning, it doesn't actually burn. time for another liver flush I believe. Then again, it's always time for another liver flush when you're sick. Hmmm, let's see...I don't know what you've done since the last report of doing that Sutter flush, but it seems to me several weeks have passed - and I knowyou've done a flush since then...right? I posted to someone yesterday, soon folks are going to start realizing they're "in a spot"...as I'm both an advisor/coach AND the supplier...and I have the ability to address things "out loud" & publicly (in order to ensure you're doing what you can to take care of yourself!) So I know what products you have - and in your case I'm SURE you were supposed to be using them for working on your liver since they arrived. 'Seems to me like perhaps you're running a bit behind schedule? You can't expect to heal "other" aspects of your body when your liver is clogged & compromised. That's just a waste of product & time. We've GOT to get to the cause behind the cause, right? right!
Should I keep taking IF#2 to soothe my stomach/intestines? You should be taking 5 doses a day, everyday. Anything else? I didn't drink milk or eat bread at all, as it seems a little counterproductive to do so. Whoops, I didn't see this when I typed 'the above'. I think if you're in distress you should do what it takes to get out of distress (as long as it's not toxic of course). A piece of bread and a cup of milk isn't enough to be 'counterproductive' (but :::grin::: not keeping up with your liver flushing IS counterproductive!) And accept my apologies if you've been flushing and just not talking about it here.
The worst cramping I've ever gotten from cayenne was months ago where I had taken some on a near empty stomach, and about an hour later was pale, sweaty, clammy, felt cold, shaking, and cramping so bad I couldn't stand up straight, but after 5 apples or so and 20 minutes, I was pretty much ok. None of that is exaggeration at all. I don't think you're exaggerating - I know that more cayenne powder that one is used to can drop a person to their knees. That's why it's SO necessary to start "low" and build-up...and stay consistent. We acclimate easily/quickly. , but we lose the acclimation just as quicklyI read some nonsense before that 'cayenne overdose' can start dropping your body temperature and kill you if you don't go to the ER. I don't believe that, and I've never heard of anyone dying of peppers except with allergic reaction to it. I agree, that's nonsense. I bring this up because I was thinking about cayenne powder in emergency situations. A teaspoon of cayenne with water is said to stop a heart attack, but what should be done to prevent the cramping that may follow? If one is dealing with a heart attack or life/death bleeding, who cares about cramping? Also, (again) that's what the tincture is good for...no cramping (or VERY minimal) as the majority absorbs rapidly into the bloodstream through the stomach walls and upper intestines. And honestly, I think that a teaspoon of the "weeny stuff" would actually be enough to stop heart attack/bleeding...I really don't think one would need a full teaspoon of the ultra hot stuff. But I have no way of knowing for sure (don't have any heart attack folks dropping by for me to test out my theory).
It's really powerful stuff though. I felt really warm all over last night even though my temperature stayed around where it should be. Increased circulation. I've also been checking my blood pressure before and after taking cayenne, and it really does regulate the blood. Yep, it's fantastic...and very beneficial for a myriad of reasons.
I also have some questions about Brain Formula tincture. I got a sample of it but cayenne and the other herbals are keeping me occupied, so I gave it too my sister to try out, as she has brain fog, etc., and I've been preaching natural healing to my family for a while now. Preach on!
She says she feels better on it, but she still hasn't actively begun addressing her health problems, so I was wondering for how long can someone be safely taking the brain formula, as it is part of a larger program? When we're dealing with "newbies" in the world of natural healing, using tinctures is a FABULOUS way to 'set the hook' in our fishies. There's no harm in using the Brain Formula for an extended time - my only concern would be the ginkgo (as it's a gentle blood thinner)...but most folks's blood is WAY too thick anyway. Generally, when folks get results from a tincture, it peaks their interest...at the very least, it's FAR better than a pharmaceutical or otc, at the best - it causes people to learn more and start cleansing & healing. High quality tinctures are always a win-win situation (to me). I've also read about the herb calamus supposedly being a mild hallucinogen. I've had problems with hallucinations/delusions in the past (also outside the scope of this topic), so I've become very wary of putting anything into my system that can potentially adversely affect my mind. What are your thoughts on calamus in this regard? Could it have a cumulative effect? I've never read anything about Calamus being "cumulative" - and I don't have any reason to think it would be. Next, see the formula for Brain Tincture below - there's only ONE part Calamus (that mean in every dropperful of this formula, only 1/7th is Calmus...that's a mighty tiny amount). Next, remember Dr. Schulze used this for patients with dementia & alzheimers...it's not likely to do anything harmful to the brain. And lastly, read this: http://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=8800 (from the Erowid vaults). These folks KNOW their hallucinogens, and that article is impressively written and well-researched. It takes a LOT of straight, chewed root to have ANY 'psycho-active' effect. Bottom line: I don't think there's any possible way to 'do harm' by trying it for a week.
