The Healing Power of Peppers: Part 1; Cayenne As A Curative


An entry from the journal of Priddy Meeks, a doctor in mid-nineteenth-century Utah, sets the scene for our special report on the medicinal uses of chile peppers:

"He reached Parowan with both feet frozen above his ankles. He was left with me to have both feet amputated, as it was thought there was no possible chance to save his life without amputation. I was at my wit's end to know what to do. I saw no possible chance for amputation. An impulse seemed to strike my mind as tho by inspiration that I would him cayenne pepper inwardly and see what effect that would have on the frozen feet.

This bright red fruit grows in warm tropical climates on small perennial shrubs that bloom with white flowers in late summer.

Varieties of cayenne are cultivated all over the world. The strength and medicinal value range from the most powerful pepper grown in Sierra Leone, Africa, to the mild paprika enjoyed in Hungary.
