Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report that dietary capsaicin — the active ingredient in chili peppers — produces chronic activation of a receptor on cells lining the intestines of mice, triggering a reaction that ultimately reduces the risk of colorectal tumors.

The current study suggests one potential remedy might be spicy capsaicin, which acts as an irritant in mammals, generating a burning sensation in contact with tissue. Capsaicin is already broadly used as an analgesic in topical ointments, where its properties as an irritant overwhelm nerves, rendering them unable to report pain for extended periods of time. It’s also the active ingredient in pepper spray.

The researchers fed capsaicin to mice genetically prone to developing multiple tumors in the gastrointestinal tract. The treatment resulted in a reduced tumor burden and extended the lifespans of the mice by more than 30 percent.

Dr. Keith & Laurie Nemec’s comments on “Hot Peppers Inhibit Intestinal Tumors”:

This is yet another study that confirms that plants were not only meant for our food but also for our medicine. The active ingredient in hot peppers is called capsaicin and it is shown to not only reduce the risk of colorectal cancer but also reduce tumors in mice that already have multiple tumors AND increase their lifespan by 30%. All this with just the additional of chilli peppers.

Now what if you added raw garlic in the salad, adding some ginger and also some curcumin what would the decrease in tumors and increase in lifespan be then? Are you getting the messages? “Let your food be your medicine” according to Hippocrates. Much better then letting your toxic medication with 7-500 side effects being your medicine!

What if we all would get back to simplicity. Simple food, a simpler lifestyle, less instead of more. It has been proven in health and longevity that the less an animal eats, this is calorie restriction, the longer it lives.

Now apply this principle to natural treatment for health disorders. If you are having intestinal issues why not try taking probiotics, digestive enzymes, eating some hot peppers, change your diet, drink more water, get more exercise and spend more time listening to God speak to your heart.

Wouldn’t this be a better way unless your were in an emergency state and that is when true medicine shines because it can save lives, but the problem is they cannot extend lives. The life extension task is all up to you.
