It is this time of year again!Everyone around me at the moment is feeling lethargic, suffering from some sort of flu. It is cold,dark and wet outside. Death has claimed friends and loved ones including the beloved David Bowie. I did not know him. Nonetheless, I loved him. He was my hero and the world is a lesser place without him. My mother -being the eternal optimist, would say that the world is a better place because of him.
Like many people in Ireland back in the day, my mother also swore that pepper in boiled milk was great for you if you were suffering from ‘sniffles’, colds or flu.
The following cure I am about to tell you about is a fantastic ‘ pick me upper’ when you are feeling awful. It is a modification of this old original cure. I am suggesting using Cayenne pepper instead of the ordinary fine white pepper and water instead of milk. Be warned however it is shocking hard to take!!
You will need
- Two teaspoons of dried Cayenne Pepper. You can buy this in any local shop.
- Water, distilled or boiled.
- Put two teaspoon of cayenne pepper into a glass
- Add a small amount of hot or cold water and drink down in one gulp. Some people prefer it hot. I prefer the water to be cold
- Follow immediately with a glass of cold water.
The cayenne pepper works by dilating the blood vessels. When the capillaries are dilated oxygen and other nutrients are released and is absorbed into the body thereby enhancing the body ability to recovery from the infection.
This remedy may not suit when you are taking medications and if you are worried about any aspect of your health whatsoever, check with your own health practitioner before taking Cayenne Pepper.
Note to self
Have a great one you guys.
If you are brave or sick enough, try taking the Cayenne Pepper in water.
Believe me when I tell you it works. It really does and fast. Once you have taken it you will start to perspire, thereby reducing your temperature and returning your body back to its natural state of homeostasis.
Hugs and love on this Monday.
