THIS is what got my attention: "Cayenne pepper's bright red color signals its high content of beta-carotene or pro-vitamin A. Just two teaspoons of cayenne pepper provide 47% of the daily value for vitamin A. Often called the anti-infection vitamin, vitamin A is essential for healthy epithelial tissues including the mucous membranes that line the nasal passages, lungs, intestinal tract and urinary tract and serve as the body's first line of defense against invading pathogens." source
Cayenne Pepper and Lemon Juice recipe
1/2 lemon squeezed
*If you don't have fresh, used 2 tablespoons of "real lemon" or equivalent*
1/4 - 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (powder)
*If it's your first time, start slow*
8 ounces water
Add all ingredients to a large glass. Stir and chug.
I do this 3 times per day
*Update* We have been drinking this for 48 hours. Since I wrote this post 24 hours ago, my husband has not had to use his asthma inhaler. That's HUGE!
This worked so well we now offer a DIY Cayenne Tincture Kit

1 - 32 ounce Glass Jar with lid, 1 - 2 ounce Amber Bottle with dropper top, 2 customizable labels, 1 ounce of Organic Herbs (additional herbs available) and Detailed Instructions
While my husband calls this mixture "floor cleaner" because it smells lemony, he actually asked for a glass when I went in to make mine this morning. It's amazing what nature has to offer!

My mom use to mix cayenne, lemon and honey together. We would eat a spoon full a few times a day when we were sick. I still use it. Thanks so much for sharing this on my party!!! Have a great day.

I am an asthmatic and have tons of allergy's. I will have to try this! Thanks! New GFC follower here from Let's Get Social :)
*ROFL* Floor cleaner. Back when I was pregnant the last time, I had horrid congestion. But I could not use regular decongestants because they raised my blood pressure. And I abhor "pork rinds", but the Cajun-flavored rinds in the snack machine at work were my only salvation some nights!
Found you and following through the Let's Get Social Sunday link up! :O)
I will definitely try this today. Thanks for sharing.
I'm a new follower from Thumping Thursdays. Have a good week!

I love this remedy! Cayenne and lemon with a squeeze of local raw honey in a glass of water is a go-to for me. I also use a cayenne tincture that I made. :) I found your blog through HomeAcre Hop.
