Kombucha is a ancient health elixir made with sugar, tea and the kombucha symbiosis.
We actually ferment our cayenne (180,000 HU) in with our kombucha mushroom for a full 20 day ferment and then extract and pure distill into a flavorful and spicy health elixir.
Colloidal Silver as well as other natural additives like Gingko Biboba, stevia, peppermint and ginger may be custom blended and added upon request.
The greatest benefit of using cayenne pepper in natural medicine comes from cayenne's ability to rapidly stimulate the circulatory system and deliver fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to the heart and other organs in the body. When used properly, cayenne "opens up" capillaries allowing vitalized blood to reach areas that it may not normally reach due to poor circulation.
Clinical and anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that cayenne pepper can be utilized to carry other substances, such as herbs and other nutrients, into the bloodstream - and sometimes within seconds. Extensive clinical studies conducted with cayenne pepper and Ginkgo Biloba demonstrate that Ginkgo is 75% more effective when used with cayenne.
Dr. Christopher and later Richard Schultz report that the cayenne pepper benefit both the heart and the health of the entire circulatory system. Dr. Christopher, after extensive experience, believed that cayenne pepper delivers vital nutrients directly to the heart within seconds of proper use. He utilized the stimulating effects of cayenne to restore proper function to the heart in heart attack cases.
In order to maximize the benefits associated with cayenne pepper, a high quality product must be used, with a true rating of between 90,000 and 150,000 HU (heat units).
Although it's convenient to use capsules, the full benefit cannot be achieved and actually may damage the stomach and cause reaction. A tincture or a powder (added to water) should be used. A full strength dose is one teaspoon of powder mixed into a glass of warm water. Despite the initial discomfort, it is critical that the cayenne come in contact with the tongue as the cayenne acts as a metabolic catalyst.
The only side effect other than pure heat, which many people rather seem to enjoy, may be stomach irritation - especially true with capsules, since capsules give the body no warning. A popular adjunct to stomach distress is the addition of peppermint and/or ginger. Both ginger and peppermint are famous Chinese herbs used to aid digestion and calm the stomach. Both spicy and warm but when used with cayenne create what is termed "Cool Cayenne".
Cayenne and Colloidal Silver
It is unknown exactly how effective cayenne pepper is in delivering colloidal silver to the bloodstream or organs of the body. Our experiments centered around utilizing cayenne pepper orally for use with stubborn lung infections that were resistant to other treatment.
In addition to stimulating the circulatory system, cayenne loosens the mucus in the lungs associated with infections. Within only a few minutes of using cayenne orally, the mucus begins to break up, and the lungs begin a process of clearing. This treatment is ideal when nebulizing with colloidal silver. Since any colloidal silver is most effective in areas it can directly reach, utilizing cayenne in this manner can greatly increase the infection fighting properties of colloidal silver as used in the lungs.
We have always chosen to use the nebulizer first to deliver colloidal silver into the lung tissues ( see the section on oxygen nebulizer use ). Then, having mixed one teaspoon of cayenne powder in a glass of warm water, one takes a partial mouthful of the mixture, and holds it under the tongue for as long as possible before swallowing ( at least 30 seconds ). The discomfort is temporary, and is best done when the stomach is not empty. One waits three to five minutes ( or until comfortable ) before using the nebulizer again.
This treatment should be tailored according to the situation and the tolerance/condition of the person in question. Definitive results should become quite evident within 72 hours even with chronic conditions.
It is always wise to use cayenne pepper sparingly when the body is not adjusted to use. To do so, adjust the frequency of use and not the individual dose level. The critical part of the treatment is delivering as much of cayenne's "heat" to the body at one time as is safely possible.
The full potential of cayenne as used with colloidal silver is unexplored. Considering the known benefits of cayenne and its proven safety in culinary use, it is undoubtedly an excellent addition to any health regime.
