Native Americans used hot peppers for headaches. On a radio program on PBS, they were

discussing headaches. A woman called in and said that her father had frequent migraines

and he would carry either a cayenne or jalapeno pepper in a plastic baggie with him.

At the first sign of migraine, he would eat the pepper and no more headache.

She asked if there was any scientific basis for this. They had a guest doctor on the program

who specialized in headaches and he said that there definitely was. Seems as if our nerves

contain a chemical substance that is responsible for feeling pain (I don't remember the name of it).

When you eat the hot pepper, the capsicum which is the "heat" in the pepper depletes the

nerves of that chemical, so we feel no pain.
