Cayenne for Pain Control.:
Capsaicin in cayenne pepper has very powerful pain-relieving properties when applied to the surface of the skin. Laboratory studies have found that capsaicin relieves pain by destroying a chemical known as substance P that normally carries pain messages to the brain. This appears to be true when applied topically for the following conditions:
Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis:
As well as joint or muscle pain from other causes.
Shingles and other painful skin conditions:
Pain from shingles can continue to recur even after the skin blisters have disappeared. Capsaicin may help this latter pain, which is called post-herpetic neuralgia, as well, but not all studies agree and the research is somewhat limited. Whether your post-herpetic neuralgia improves or disappears using capsaicin may be very individual. Check with your healthcare provider to see it is safe and appropriate for you to try this topical treatment.
Following surgery from:
For example, a mastectomy (breast removal for breast cancer) or pain after an amputation.
Including Cluster headaches (a severe one-sided headache that tends to occur in clusters, happening repeatedly every day at the same time for possibly several weeks); for this purpose the capsaicin is placed inside the nose.
Pain from Peripheral Neuropathy:
(nerve damage experienced in the feet and/or legs) due to diabetes; peripheral neuropathy pain from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), however, does not seemed to be relieved from capsaicin.
Low back pain:
Homeopathic gels of capsaicin are available for this purpose. Capsaicin, however, is not generally considered a first-line homeopathic remedy for low back pain because other homeopathic remedies have fewer side effects.
Capsaicin Significantly Reduces Debilitating Nerve Pain:
Capsaicin, a derivative of hot chili peppers, may significantly reduce chronic, debilitating nerve pain associated with a range of diseases when used in high doses.
Capsaicin has long been used in low dosages, and is widely available in creams containing capsaicin concentrations of less than one percent.
Capsaicin in concentrations higher than one percent had not previously been used as a treatment because it causes intense burning when applied, a result of capsaicin activating nerves before anaesthetizing them.
In study, however, patients were able to tolerate the burning because they were given regional anesthesia before the capsaicin was administered. The role of the anesthesia in promoting the effects of the capsaicin has not been determined.
Researchers were concerned that high dosages of capsaicin could affect the patients' abilities to sense extreme temperatures and pain, therefore increasing their chances for further injuries.
