(Health Secrets) Many people are faced with the need to stop heart attacks and irregular heart beats each year. In the U.S., the number of deaths from heart attacks alone exceeds 500,000. Although irregular heartbeats are responsible for fewer deaths, they can lead to anxiety, invasive procedures and years of drug treatment. We do not hear about powerful alternatives for cardiovascular problems through the usual media sources, but natural treatments for the heart can quickly stop heart attacks and irregular heart beats. In fact, they are more effective than anything the medical establishment has to offer.
Cayenne pepper stops heart attacks in their tracks
Cayenne pepper is known as the king of herbs because of its ability to intervene in a heart attack to the point that symptoms dissipate within a couple of minutes. Herbalist and educator Dr. John Christopher often used cayenne pepper to treat a heart attack, and he never lost a heart attack victim in his 35 years of practice. When he was called, he told the caller to heat water. When he arrived, he put a tablespoon of cayenne pepper in the warm water, brought the victim around, and told him to drink up.
Another way to do it is with cayenne pepper tincture (extract). It only takes a couple of droppers full to do the trick. Regular cayenne pepper powder, such as you can find at any grocery store can also be used, though organic cayenne is probably the best choice. Anyone who is concerned about the possibility of a heart attack is well advised to keep cayenne pepper extract or powder on the kitchen shelf at all times.
Cayenne pepper is renowned for its overall cardiovascular benefits and is considered by many herbalists to be the top herb for overall heart health. Among its many healthy properties is its ability as a natural blood thinner. It also strengthens, stimulates, and tones the heart, balances circulation and blood pressure, and calms palpitations.
Naturalize heart beats with Hawthorn berry
Irregular heart beats, known medically as atrial fibrillation, is a condition in which heart rhythms fall out of sync, resulting in rapid, fluttery, violent or erratic beats. Hawthorn berry is an herb that is able to normalize irregular heart beats quick and efficiently. Many people find their heart rhythm beginning to normalize in just a few minutes after taking Hawthorn berry. Like cayenne pepper, Hawthorn berry can be taken as an extract. One of the most popular extract forms is known as Hawthorn berry syrup. Hawthorn berry also comes in supplemental capsules and the raw plant can be used to make hawthorn berry tea.
Hawthorn berry is widely known for its overall cardiovascular benefits. Hawthorn was also one of Dr. Christopher’s favorite herbs for the heart, probably because it is rich in flavonoids which protect small capillary vessels from free-radical damage. It normalizes blood pressure, and lowers cholesterol and fat deposits in the liver and aorta. In addition to correcting faulty heart beats, Hawthorn helps conditions such as angina, arteriosclerosis, blood clots, and hypertension. Though a dropper of Hawthorn berry extract may settle irregular heartbeats in short order, it may take months to realize hawthorn’s full benefits.
In the event of a heart attack, regardless of how quickly it is stopped, one should seek the immediate attention of a natural healer. The same is true for anyone with severe or prolonged irregular heartbeats.
