Interestingly, she found later on that eating a capsaicin-rich diet (capsaicin is what puts the hot in hot peppers) completely abolishes any analgesic effect.

I remember hearing about the studies of women who ate diets high in capsaicin experiencing more pain in labor and my heart fell. You'd think that anyone who could handle that much capsaicin would have a higher pain threshold. Crap!
