Book Review: Left for Dead by Dick Guinn

​------ Forwarded message ------
From: Muriel Luedeman​​

Book Review: Left for Dead by Dick Guinn

(Disclaimer: Consult a physician before using the following information. Herbs are drugs in their natural state and may counteract negatively with other drugs.)

Muriel Luedeman here. As I was filling capsules this morning I felt the urge to write this review and send it out through Garland Schnack. It may be just the kind of information someone is desperately looking for.

A friend put me onto a book, which I, in turn, highly recommend. The benefits of Cayenne pepper are widely known. Its capacity to stop bleeding internally and externally is what I have known it does. But the story Dick Guinn tells in his book, Left for Dead, is incredible, really worth sharing with everyone. Dick Guinn was dying at age 42, after bypass surgery in 1978.

Dick came with a family history of heart disease and strokes. Both sets of grandparents died before he was born. His father and father’s brother died of strokes at 47. Their sister died of a stroke. Dick’s mother survived a heart attack at 38. Dick was 42 in 1978 and in fairly good health, only a few pounds heavier than when he graduated from high school. He had quit smoking the year before. His blood pressure had been high since he was 16. When he experienced a major cardiac event, it was no surprise. He had the bypass surgery for 98% blocked arteries. , but ran some more tests, which resulted in a recommendation for more surgery. Dick said he couldn’t and wouldn’t do that and ask for something else, something new. The Doctor had nothing and became angry for suggesting it. His surgeon had nothing left to offer him except more surgery, which Dick knew he would never survive and the doctor gave up on him and, left him for dead, hence the title of his book.

I must interject here that this story took place in 1978. Many doctors and surgeons are more enlightened today. I have experienced many doctors using integrated therapies, recommending herbs, essential oils, and other less invasive treatments for serious conditions.)

Grasping for anything, Dick took the advice of a woman he had met six months earlier. He wasn’t doing well a week after the bypass, no energy, no strength, barely able to walk, etc. He dragged himself down to the lake near by one morning for some sun. An acquaintance, the mother of a friend, approached him, noticing the struggle he had walking to the beach. She told him he needed to take Cayenne Red Pepper. He blew her off, thinking a grocery store spice could do nothing to help his heart condition. After the doctors verdict, Dick immediately thought of the Cayenne pepper. I ran to the store and bought a 69 cent can of Cayenne Red Pepper, went home, emptied a few capsules from an old prescription, filled them, and swallowed three. He said he didn’t expect anything to happen and it didn’t right away.

The next day, though, he woke an hour earlier than usual and felt like getting up. Usually he woke tired. He didn’t think of the Cayenne. He said he felt strangely impatient, even energetic. He felt so good, he put on his hat, coat, scarf and gloves and went outside. He felt terrific but was afraid it wouldn’t last. An early snow had come, and a pile had slid off the house onto the porch rook. He had asked his sons to shovel it off after school that day. It felt so good to feel good, that Dick climbed up on the roof and began shoveling. It was heavy and wet snow, four feet deep, but it seemed so easy to shovel. He shoveled the entire porch roof, all 28 feet of it.

Suddenly he realized what madness it was to shovel snow. It was completely against doctor’s orders. Even healthy people have heart attacks shoveling snow. But he felt so good he just did it without thinking. He said he scolded himself as he walked back into the house and sat on the living room couch, wondering what had come over him. Then he remembered the Cayenne. He ran out to the kitchen and took three more capsules and has taken a dose every day since.

I haven’t read much farther in the book than that. That was enough for me to head for Terra to buy some bulk Cayenne and empty capsules to fill for me and Bruce. Bruce takes meds for high blood pressure. The package says this about Cayenne: “Cayenne pepper consumption dilates the blood vessels and speeds the metabolism due to the high amounts of capsaicin. This increases circulation and blood flow to all major organs, facilitating oxygen and nutrient delivery. Capsaicin my support a healthy energy balance while suppressing appetite.

The book was written in 1992, fourteen years after Quinn’s surgery and recovery discovery. The friend who recommended the book says Dick tells of 10 other herbs he uses to maintain his health.

God is so GOOD to provide us with amazing plants that work miracles in themselves. Just recently I found a booklet on the herb Cat’s Claw on the free table at church. I read it and learned it reduces inflammation. I have had severe lower back pain for several months, so it was worth buying some Cat’s Claw to try it. I am doing many things to get on top of this debilitating condition, but as I take the regular dose every day, the pain is going away and quickly.

I hope knowing about these herbs will help.
