“… Put a teaspoon of red pepper powder in a glass of very hot water, drink it and until You count to 10, the bleeding will stop. Instead of centralizing of all that pressure, it became equal and the coagulation becomes faster. No matter if the bleeding is inside or outside, oral consuming of a teaspoon of red pepper powder in a glass of hot water will stop fastly.”
