Cayenne pepper is a very spicy fruit that is used in its powdered dry form, whole dried form or fresh. It adds a kick of flavor and spice to soups, sautéed meals, beans, eggs, fish and just about any dish that tastes good spicy.
Cayenne can also be added to hot tea to maximize its healing properties in the body.
Purification – Cayenne acts like fire in the body and has cleansing properties. It burns away toxins and waste. Ancient wisdom tells us that cayenne boosts metabolism, which is a ‘hot’ function in the body. Cayenne acts like a catalyst for metabolism. A well-functioning metabolism efficiently converts foods into bioavailable nutrients for the body and quickly eliminates any waste products. This helps keep the digestive track healthy. A healthy digestive track helps keep the entire body healthy. Cayenne helps ‘burn up’ excess mucus in the body.
Ginger is the wonder root that our Ancestors have used for millennia for its flavor and healing properties.
Circulation – Ginger is known for facilitating good circulation in the body. Good circulation is key to maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Good circulation also aids in vibrant skin and the vitality of our extremities – fingers, toes, feet, scalp and hair. The heart has to work the hardest to get blood circulating to the extremities because they are the furthest away from the heart. With rising cases of blood clots and diabetes related amputations, it’s important that more attention is paid to everyday good circulation. Ginger also helps with the consistency of the blood.
Unfortunately, most modern day blood pressure medicines simply expand the arteries and veins, making it easier for blood to flow through. This lowers the blood pressure. However, without lifestyle change, the consistency and quality of the blood is thick, acidic and poorly oxygenated. Using blood pressure medicine can mask much bigger problems.*** Ginger improves the quality of the blood and overall circulation. Incorporated in an overall wellness plan, ginger is sure to deliver delightful results. It can be added to broths, sautéed dark green veggies, teas and much more.

Garlic is a wonder vegetable. It packs a mighty anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial punch. To get the most benefit from garlic, it’s best consumed raw. It has a naturally spicy and pungent flavor that makes it difficult for many to eat it raw.
Garlic can be chopped into small (pill like) pieces and swallowed whole. Garlic can also be minced, chopped or juiced and added to food and drink. Traditional healers have known forever that garlic is beneficial to heart health. Now even western medicines can’t deny the amazing benefits of garlic consumption for the heart.
Garlic consumption can help combat a number of common infections.
I like to combine all these ingredients in a powerful wellness tea.
