How To Stop Serious Bleeding In Just 10 Seconds!

If you or someone in your home has ended up with a bleeding wound, it can be pretty easy to treat or potentially life threatening.

Whether you find yourself wanting to plug a cut or need to slow down bleeding while medics get to you, there’s one trick that Native Americans have used for thousands of years.

They put Cayenne pepper on their wounds. It’s likely not in your medicine cabinet, but I’d bet Cayenne is in your spice cabinet right now. Cayenne is a great addition to any first aid kit for backpackers, campers, or even just at home.

It’s easy to use for external wounds. Just apply the powder directly to your cut or laceration. The bleeding should stop shortly after.

If your wound is larger than just a minor scrape or cut, a teaspoon of cayenne powder mixed in a glass of water taken orally can help slow the bleeding. The spice is a styptic, meaning it stops bleeding when applied to a wound and helps the blood clot when taken orally.

Dr. Richard Schulze, ND, MH, proclaimed, “If you only master one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It’s more powerful than any other.”

    Cayenne is wonderful. Taken internally in capsule form, it can stop nose bleeds and heavy periods. I used it for years!
