Try using the search function (in the blue banner bar, above) for "first aid kit" in the Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries/Cures section, you will find a number of older threads with valuable suggestions.

Good luck,

Pat

The cayenne is a hot pepper which has had a long history of use in herbology. Its active ingredient is capsaicin. When taken internally it can warm the body, raise metabolism, improve weak digestion and increase circulation. Cayenne may also have some supportive activity as an antimicrobial to help control infections such as pneumonia.

Added to apple cider vinegar and water for respiratory problems, a natural wormer (preventative), can be used as pain reducer (if not using aspirin), help with coccidoisis, if given early enough.
