Natural solution to orthodontic pain! How I naturally avoided pain during headgear treatment

it's something we've feared since we were born! Nobody chooses to experience pain, yet it's constantly threatening us in even the smallest daily activities!
  Sometimes pain is accepted as a necessary side effect of a good thing. And in some instances that is true. Childbirth comes to mind. However, wouldn't it be great if we could do something to lessen some of the pain in our lives?
   I have many options, but the one I have been most recently relying on is...Cayenne pepper!
Although an adult, I recently got orthodontic braces and just this week began wearing headgear. To even my own surprise, I breezed through the first 15 hours straight without more than a little pain near the end of those hours! I have continued to don the unusual device and although I can tell my teeth are moving (tenderness is obvious), I have not really suffered any pain.
The reason this time? Cayenne pepper! For the 10 days preceding my orthodontic appointment, I downed 4 gelatin capsules of Cayenne pepper daily!
Cayenne has been proven to lessen sensitivity to pain. I cannot tolerate spicy foods, so I ingested the pills instead of flavouring my food daily with the spice.

Vitacost is our favourite place to purchase health supplements and herbs and spices! Sign up through our referral link and then search Cayenne pepper. You can buy the spice loose, and then add empty gelatin capsules to your order. Or you can purchase already capsuled Cayenne.
Choose what best suits your needs, and then add this beneficial spice to your daily routine!

Since I mentioned orthodontic care, I want to mention that cayenne in capsules is an excellent option for giving your child who is ''suffering'' orthodontic treatment! Not all children can tolerate heavily-spiced foods, yet many can swallow capsules, making this the perfect solution to their pain/discomfort.

  1. Fascinating! I wish I had known about this when I was a kid! I had braces for 2 1/2 years and head gear twice during that I know the pain your talking about! I'll have to keep this in mind if any of my kiddos need braces in the future. Thanks for sharing with us at the Homestead Blog Hop! :)
