Below is the extract from a Russian article on the miraculous powers of red pepper.
“Peppers that are not very hot (like Paprika) are used in the American native medicine to increase blood circulation in the eyes. I myself wash my eyes with pepper infusion because my eyes start paining when I sit in front of the computer for a long time.
Have you ever though why the police use pepper spray to eyes without a fear that they will be charged for blinding people? Because the pepper by itself is absolutely harmless, the difference is in the concentration. The red pepper increases blood circulation in the eyes. Try to make an infusion of paprika in distilled water – so weak that it burns the eyes just a little bit. Use pure, unadulterated paprika. When there is an eye problem, you will agree to anything if it helps. There are no drugs to return your eyesight, but red pepper is there and its cost is close to nothing.
Remember the main rule of healing: you have to increase the blood circulation in the area you want to heal – by any means, be it mechanical, therapeutic or by any other means.”
