How to Relieve Headaches with Hot Peppers

If you master only one herb in your life, master cayenne pepper. It is more powerful than any other. ~Dr. Schulze

Capsaicin, the active ingredient in cayenne, is behind this folk wisdom. It is believed to bring relief by depleting Substance P, a neurotransmitter that helps transmit pain impulses. One prominent study on capsaicin for pain relief was published back in 1998 in the Clinical Journal of Pain. Their review of 33 previous studies found that capsaicin worked better than a placebo for cluster headaches.

Smelling cayenne helps cure headaches. Topical application of capsaicin also helps to relieve them.
