Anyone else read Lifehacker? They always have interesting tips on how to make life simpler. Here’s story on using hot peppers to cure headaches:
I have been a migraine sufferer for most of my life and I’ve tried many different prescription fixes. Some of them work, but my current prescription (Midrin) causes major drowsiness. Finally, a doctor recommended I try hot peppers. The capsaicin in the peppers has been used as a natural pain reliever for some time. I tried it first with chipotle peppers which are smokey and pleasant although still quite hot. It worked! As a matter of fact when combined with a cup of coffee (caffeine is a common drug used in over the counter drugs for the treatment of migraines), the peppers almost always successfully stem the onset of bad headaches.
