Cayenne Pepper Will Literally ‘Knock the Socks’ off the Worst Sore Throat Pain

August 14th, 2008 · No Comments · cayenne pepper, Sore Throat

As we discussed in Part 1 of our 8 part Cayenne Pepper Series, our last article titled: Burn Away Body Fat By Eating Red-Hot Chili Peppers, that adding cayenne pepper to your meals not only boosts your vitamin C levels, but can rev up your “fat thermostats” (called “brown fat”), which enables the body to burn off more fat through chemical combustion, rather than storing it in muscle tissue.

Let’s know tap into Part 2: “Cayenne Pepper will Literally ‘Knock the Socks’ off the Worst Sore Throat Pain Imaginable.”

According to Dr. Jane Guiltinan, cheif medical officer at the John Bastyr University Natural Health Clinic in Seattle Washington, “cayenne pepper will literally ‘knock the socks’ off the worst sore throat pain imaginable.” Relief will last up to four hours.

Dr. Guiltinan recommends mixing the juice from 1/2 lemon with 1 tablespoon of salt in 1/2 cup lukewarm distilled water.  Then stir in 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.  Garble small amounts for as long as you are able.  CAUTION:  DO NOT SWALLOW!!

This remedy not only relieves sore throat pain, but also fights viral infections.
