What do you mean by “sick”?
Irritated tongue/mouth, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, “indigestion”*, heartburn/reflux? They tend to have different causes. I don’t know that there is any direct effect of capsaicin that makes one “sick”.
“I guess I won’t try to finish the very spicy dishes, just taste a bit, and leave them behind.”
Yes! And ask for milder if that’s the problem.
Full fat dairy is a decent rescue. But it’s like a rescue inhaler. Avoid the "attack"if you can.
I literally have to turn the channel when some show is about tolerating pain from chilis. So not about enjoying or respecting food, and not my idea of entertainment.
*the hub and I love the pep to bismol commercial, but I don’t think it “prepares” you.
This one was news to me! Most of what I read found capsacin protective! Learn something new!
