At a Herbal College Dr. John Christopher learned about the benefits of Cayenne Pepper. Since Dr. Christopher was told by his mother that cayenne pepper would burn the lining of the stomach he needed some convincing. His teacher Dr. Nowell “introduced him to over a dozen people whose lives had been saved with Cayenne: people with heart troubles, ulcers, asthma, and many other ailments.”
In his thirties, Dr. Christopher had arthritis, hardening of arteries, stomach ulcers and the doctor told him that he would not live past 40. Having learned about the benefits of Cayenne Pepper he started taking it and built up to taking a teaspoon of cayenne three times a day.
At 45 years old he was examined by two doctors for an insurance policy and one of them told him that he had ‘the venous structure of a teenage boy.’
” Once a child was shot in the abdomen; a bullet hit the spine, ricocheted, and made a second wound leaving the body. One of Dr. Christopher’s herbal students, living next door, heard the shot and raced over, as she knew that the parents were not home and that the children, ages eight and four, would not be shooting guns.
There was the eight-year-old gushing blood out both sides. She ran to the cabinet and mixed a tablespoonful of cayenne in a glass of water; she poured it down the boy and immediately called the ambulance, which was eighteen miles away. The emergency room attendant said that the boy would probably bleed to death, being that the distance was so great. The ambulance arrived and rushed the child (who had been playing “Cops and Robbers” with his father’s pistol, which he had found Under the pillow of the bed, to the Primary Children’s Hospital eighteen miles away. When he arrived, he was the center of attraction, not because his ease was so dangerous, but because he was chatting a mile a minute – and there was not bleeding. The bleeding had stopped by the time they arrived at the hospital. The chief doctor said to the parents, “I have seen many accident victims in my life, but this is the first time in such an emergency operation that I have opened an abdomen to find no blood, except for a small amount that was there before the bleeding stopped so quickly. This has saved your boy’s life.” (Herbal Legacy)
