If you have small children, then you need to know the quickest and most effective way to stop their bleeding in the case of cuts.
Cayenne pepper is very effective in stopping the bleeding of an open wound, even in the case of deep cuts.
According to eHow,
“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.”
Namely, cayenne pepper regulates blood pressure, thereby promoting blood clotting. You can either take it orally or apply it topically. However, it is advisable to visit a doctor in the case of serious cuts.
Here’s Dr. John Christopher’s advice on how to use cayenne pepper orally, as explained in his book School of Natural Healing:
“…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.”
Moreover, cayenne pepper combats infections that come with minor cuts, thanks to its potent antibacterial properties.
