Cayenne pepper and Emphysema

I have read that cayenne pepper is helpful in treating the symtoms of COPD  with Enphysema. If this is true how would you know how much to take and what form to take it in and how often?

Thank You

I have COPD and started using 100,000 HU's of Cayenne Pepper in capsule form about 2 months ago. In just a few days, I was able to get up in the mornings with no coughing up handfulls of mucous. I can run and walk fast and don't get out of breath at all. I still cough up a little mucous in the mornings, but otherwise you would never know there was anything wrong with me.

Carol, type in Nature's Way Cayenne Pepper in your web browser. I would recommend you start with 140,000 heat units a day with a meal. It's hot going down and can burn your stomach. If you buy this from Nature's Way, you will be getting the best they have. After you take a bottle of the 140,000 HU's, order a bottle or two of the 100,000 HU's and take one capsule with food three times a day. You may still have some mucous to spit up in the morning, but you will feel so much better and will breathe better. If there is anything else I can help you with, I'll gladly do so. Nancy Walker

Nancy, can't find 140,000, and as a newcomer to cayenne is it safe to start with 100,000 hu 3xday?  Should I start w/40 3xday?  or 100,000 once a day and work up to three?  Greatly appreciate the advice.

Susan, I'm really sorry I didn't answer you yesterday. People differ in how they can take Cayenne Pepper. I was able to take 1 capsule of 100,000 heat units per day and the next month I upped it 200,000 heat units. The next month I upped it to 300,000 heat units. Many people cannot take that much, but you can try. You can buy the Extra Hot Cayenne Pepper from www.herbalprovider.com. You may want to start out with 450 mg. per day. Not sure if herbal provider has it, but if you live near a vitamin shop like  Vitamin World, they do have the 450 mg. tablet. You can take 3 of those a day. Whichever you choose, you must take it in 3 doses with a meal. If you need more help with this, please give me a holler and I'll do my best to help you.

Nancy, when you took 100,000 (later, 200,000 and 300,000 hu capsules), did you take 3 a day (one w/each meal) or just one a day?  What condition were you addressing and with what result?  Greatly appreciate your help w/this.  Best, Susan

P.S.  - Nancy, I see where you were addressing COPD.  What I really want to know is state of COPD (your health) when you started your cayenne regimen.  Shortness of breath? Difficulty walking?  S/

Susan, I take 3 capsule a day, one with each meal. You must take them with a meal to prevent stomach ulcers. I have Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The Cayenne Pepper prevents the build up of thick mucous in my lungs. I can get up in the morning now and breathe very well. Ask away girl. I'm here most of the time.
