Curing with Cayenne by Sam Biser
Left For Dead by Dick Quinn

"Pour some cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water and have patient drink it all down. He will come right out of his problem due to the cayenne enabling the body to normalize the blood circulation." --John Christopher, Master Herbalist

"Cayenne should be an herb which everyone has in the kitchen, the bathroom and in the trunk of your car...Because there is no other herb that moves the blood faster to the brain than cayenne.  ...It relieves the pain of angina pectoris by helping to get more blood to the heart muscle itself. And if a person has a heart attack, Cayenne is the surest first-aid remedy...I have had almost a hundred patients actually save their lives by using a tablespoon of Cayenne pepper in a glass of warm water and drinking it down fast."  Dr Richard Shulze, N.D., M.H.

Hawthorn berries I look at more as, like, they are strengthening to the heart and they are protecting to the heart. The cayenne is more to deal with the circulation. The hawthorn is more of a food for the heart but it should not be underestimated.  Today, the quality of hawthorn preparations stinks. The dosages are so small they're useless. I use five times as much as anyone else just to start but my patients lived.  The one thing good about hawthorn is that hawthorn is a food. Cayenne is a food. You can't overdose on hawthorn because there are chemicals in it that are like flavonoids; they are like vitamins, but they happen to protect the heart muscle from damage and cause the heart to be stronger.
