Lately I've been looking at herbal remedies for organ & body restoration/rejuvenation. Two of the best tonics for this sort of thing is Cayenne pepper, and Garlic.

With this in mind, I decided to experiment. I made a mixture of powdered Cayenne pepper, and aged Garlic powder. It's great so far. The benefits are amazing. I can already feel a difference.

I've been looking at different consumption techniques. Right now I'm simply encapsulating the ingredients. Today I will make a vinegar extract of the mixture. When I get some spiritus vini I will make a proper tincture. Supposedly it's really great mixed with lemon juice also.

Here's some background information on the benefits of Cayenne & Garlic:


CAPSICUM - Categories: Circulatory System, Digestive System

Symptoms: Asthma, Arthritis, Cardiovascular Disease, Circulation, Headaches, High Blood Pressure, Inflammation, Intestinal Inflammation, Menstrual Cramps, Ulcers.

Capsicum has been used for decades as a catalyst for other herbs. Because Capsicum stimulants circulation and enhances blood flow, it is considered food for the circulatory system, a common condiment to the diet.

As a cardiovascular stimulant, Capsicum assists in lowering blood pressure
and breaking down cholesterol build-up. The warming properties of Capsicum are useful for people suffering from poor circulation to the hands and feet and other related conditions.

Capsicum has been used as a digestive aid to ease intestinal inflammation, stimulate protective mucus membranes of the stomach, and also relieve pain caused by ulcers.

Capsicum is commonly used to buffer pain from other ailments, including arthritis, varicose veins, headaches, menstrual cramps and respiratory conditions such as asthma.


CAPSICUM, (Cayenne Pepper, Red Pepper, Hot Chile Peppers),
one of the most wonderful herb medicines, can be put in an open wound, either in a fresh wound or an old ulcer. It is effective as a poultice for sores and wounds or taken internally for rheumatism, inflammation, fevers and pleurisy. It is a stimulant when taken internally as well as being an antispasmodic. Good for kidneys, spleen, pancreas, and lockjaw. Will heal a sore, ulcerated stomach.

It is good in all forms of low diseases. The Key to success in medicine is stimulation, and capsicum is the great stimulant. There are many languid people who need something to make the fire of life burn more brightly. Capsicum, not whisky, is the thing to do it. It can be given without stint or measure. It is excellent in "prevention and cure of the common cold and flu" yellow fever, black vomit, decay and putrefaction "gangrene, and cancers like aids etc.".

There is no other stimulant known to medical science so natural, so certain and with less reaction following its constant use.

It increases the power of all other agents, helps the digestion when taken with meals, and arouses all the secreting organs, and may be given with the utmost safety. Fear of capsicum is unfounded. We've used it freely over a quarter century.

It is a wonderful liniment when "used alone as cold pressed extract or" mixed with 2 ounces gum myrrh, 1 ounce golden seal and ounce ground red pepper. Mix into a quart of rubbing alcohol. Let stand 7 to 10 days, shake every day. Heals wounds, bruises, sprains, scalds, burns, sunburns, and pyorrhea of the gums "skin cancer etc.". Apply freely.


(SPECIAL) It's known to stop a heart attack, lower blood sugar in diabetics, normalize blood pressure, stop bleeding in seconds, improve circulation, prevent motion sickness - even halt the common cold.

Cayenne pepper - prized for thousands of years for its healing power. Folklore from around the world recounts amazing results using cayenne pepper in simple healing and in baffling health problems. But cayenne pepper is not just a healer from ancient history. Recent clinical studies have been conducted on many of the old-time health applications for this miracle herb. Again and again, the therapeutic value of cayenne pepper has been medically validated.

Scientific evidence also indicates that cayenne pepper can be effective in treating allergies, indigestion, abscesses, tonsillitis, kidney problems, sore muscles, nose bleeds, bursitis, psoriasis, shingles, night blindness and much more.

It's life-giving action is simple. Cayenne pepper stimulates blood circulation. In disease, there is a lack of circulation or a lack of fresh blood, especially to the area that is sick or diseased. In other words, accelerating blood flow speeds healing and can have a positive effect of vision, thinking and memory.



Is Garlic Good for You?

Garlic is one of the most valuable and versatile foods on the planet. Garlic belongs to the Allium family of vegetables which also includes onions, chives, shallots and leeks.

Today garlic is a widely recognized health enhancing supplement. Garlic promotes the well-being of the heart and immune systems with antioxidant properties and helps maintain healthy blood circulation. One of garlic's most potent health benefits includes the ability to enhance the body's immune cell activity.

The active component in garlic is the sulfur compound called allicin. Allicin is the chemical produced when garlic is chopped, chewed, or bruised. Allicin is quite powerful as an antibiotic and a potent agent that helps the body to inhibit the ability of germs to grow and reproduce. In fact, it's said that 1 milligram of allicin has a potency of 15 standard units of penicillin.

There are now over 12 studies published around the world that confirm that garlic can reduce cholesterol.

Recently researchers in Oxford and America have published some summaries of all the good data on garlic. Garlic is known to stimulate T-lymphocyte and macrophage action, promote interleukin-1 levels, and support natural killer cells. Strong activity of these key cells promotes healthy immune system function, and strengthens the body's defenses.

Garlic for Health

Today, we know garlic is an excellent herb for creating and maintaining overall health, but it also has many lesser known, but powerful qualities. For example, many people don't know that it's a naturally powerful antibiotic. This natural antibiotic is effective against toxic bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Available in pills, capsules, liquid and actual raw cloves, garlic is one of the most popular healthy herbs around today.

Garlic helps platelet stickiness or aggregation to help reduce blood coagulation, and promote heart health.

The antioxidant properties of garlic help scavenge harmful free radicals, which can damage LDL (bad) cholesterol in the blood stream.

Garlic also promotes increased bile production to help reduce levels of fat in the liver. Garlic pills also help ward off coughs and colds.

Garlic and Your Heart.

The positive effect of garlic on your circulatory system is extremely well documented and it has been proved to:

lower blood pressure

decrease platelet aggregation

lower serum triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol ( the bad type) levels

increase serum HDL-cholesterol (the good type) and fibrinolysis (the process through which the body breaks up blood clots.)

Plus it stimulates the production of nitric oxide in the lining of blood vessel walls, a substance that helps them to relax.

As a result of these beneficial actions garlic helps to prevent arteriosclerosis and thereby reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Two or three cloves a day have cut the risk of subsequent heart attacks in half in heart patients.

One reason for these beneficial effects may be garlic's ability to reduce the amount of free radicals in the bloodstream. According to a study published in Life Sciences, a daily dose of 1 ml/kg body weight of garlic extract for a period of 6 months resulted in a significant reduction in oxidant (free radical) stress in the blood of arteriosclerosis patients. It's positive effect on the circulatory system improves blood flow throughout the body so has even been hailed as a cure for impotence!

Garlic and Cancer

Current research has shown that a number of readily available foods such as garlic and onions that make up a healthy diet, actually have a major impact on cancer prevention. The protective effect of garlic seems to be greater than that of onions, even though onion consumption has been shown to reduce the risk of stomach cancer. These cancer fighting foods seem to have the ability to interfere with the development of cancerous tumors.

The October 2000 issue of the American Journal of Nutrition had a summary of a number epidemiologic studies which showed that people who consumed cooked or raw garlic on a regular basis compared to those that ate little or none had about half the risk of stomach cancer and one-third less risk of colorectal cancer.

This remarkable little bulb now tops the American National Cancer Institute's list of potential cancer-preventative foods. It contains multiple anticancer compounds and antioxidants, more than 30 at the last count, which such powerful compounds as quercetin, diallyl sulphide,allin and ajoene. These have the ability to block cancer causing agents such as nitrosamine and aflatoxin which have been specifically linked to stomach, lung and liver cancer. Garlic's ajoene and allicin have also been shown to retard cancer cells as a type of natural chemotherapy.

The Iowa Women's Health Study discovered that women who included garlic in their daily diet had lower risks for colon cancer.

Meat cooked at high temperatures (well done to burnt) can produce carcinogenic (cancer producing) chemicals and research has recently discovered that when meat is cooked with garlic this effect is limited.

The ten best groups of anti-cancer foods include: berries and citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, garlic and onions, green tea, omega 3 essential fatty acids, olive oil, tomatoes, soy products, red wine and dark chocolate.

Garlic- and the Immune System.

Not surprisingly the presence of all these antioxidants in garlic have a very positive effect on the immune system in general and can therefore protect the body against all types of bacterial and viral attacks. Research has recently even shown it to have an inhibiting effect on MSRA which is currently reeking such havoc in U.K. hospitals.

Garlic also acts as a good cold medication, decongestant and expectorant. It is a surprisingly good source of vitamins C, B6 and the minerals selenium and manganese all of which have long been associated with immune system boosting as well as other benefits.

Garlic-Promotes Weight Control.

Allicin is the most potent substance found in garlic and this has been shown to not only lower blood pressure, insulin and triglyceride levels in laboratory animals fed a sugar rich diet, but also to prevent weight gain.

A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension reported that animals who developed high insulin levels, high blood pressure, and high triglycerides were given either allicin or served as a control.

Although all of the animals consumed the same amount of food, weight rose only in the control group whereas the animals who were being supplemented with allicin maintained stable weight or a slight decrease was actually noticed.

The researchers concluded that allicin may be of practical value for weight control.


Garlic Home Remedies

Garlic is an invaluable medicine for asthma, hoarseness, coughs, difficulty of breathing, and most other disorders of the lungs, being of particular virtue in chronic bronchitis, on account of its powers of promoting expectoration.

An older remedy for asthma, that was most popular, is a syrup of Garlic, made by boiling the garlic bulbs till soft and adding an equal quantity of vinegar to the water in which they have been boiled, and then sugared and boiled down to a syrup. The syrup is then poured over the boiled garlic bulbs, which have been allowed to dry meanwhile, and kept in a jar. Each morning a bulb or two should be taken, with a spoonful of the syrup.

Garlic can heal the pain caused by insect bites like those of scorpions and centipedes. The juice of fresh garlic mixed with salt can be applied to bruises, sprains and ringworms.

Right now I'm simply encapsulating the ingredients.

How do you encapsulate herbs?Another question I wanted to ask is do you take into account astrological and planetary influences?

Ah, they're powdered, and I have a few thousand empty gel-caps from my herbal/apothecarist business that went bunk.

I haven't taken into account any astrological/planetary influences with these. I haven't looked up the correspondences, but Cayenne pepper is very solar/mars-like, and Garlic seems to be Earth-like. I just go by what I feel is right sometimes, and not the correspondences listed in various books on herbal spagyrics, etc.

Your thread about type 1 diabetes: I believe this combination should really help, and it wouldn't hurt to try it! Just watch those levels once you begin taking it. Don't want to screw them up too badly.

I'll send you a PM about something.
