Papaya Leaf PAPAYA/PAW PAW LEAF
Botanical: Carica papaya
Family: Caricaceae (papaya)
Other common names:  Papaw, Mamao, Paw-Paw, Tree Melon, Gandul, Fan Kua

Papaya Leaf contains a remarkable protein-dissolving enzyme called papain, and if you suffer from indigestion or heartburn, give Papaya Leaf a try!   The enzyme in Papaya Leaf also breaks down wheat gluten and carbohydrates for extra digestive protection.

Individual results may vary, and before using any leaf matter, it is always advisable to consult with your own health care provider.

History:
Papaya is an herbaceous tree with a stem of spongy, soft wood that is hollow in the center and bears melon-like fruit.  It is an interesting tree, in that the male and female parts exist in different trees, and trees may grow to a height of twenty to thirty feet. The Papaya Tree needs a tropical climate that is dry when cold and wet when warm; consequently, its greatest success appears in the equatorial zone with its warm wet season and cool dry season.  It is extremely sensitive to frost, and water-logging will kill the taproot within forty-eight hours. The Papaya is especially susceptible to parasites, pests and diseases. This fussy plant needs a lot of water but must have good drainage, and it bears most fruit in light, porous, slightly acidic soils that are rich in organic matter.

Said to be a native of the Caribbean and Central America, the Papaya is the true papaw that now grows abundantly throughout tropical America, Hawaii and many other tropical climates throughout the world.  Although grown to some extent in south Florida, the true papaw is not related to the North American papaw.  The fruits, leaves and latex are all used medicinally. The delicious fruit is usually pear-sized and has a central cavity filled with edible, pea-sized seeds. Generally, the fruit is melon-like, oval to nearly round, and the skin is waxy and thin but fairly tough.  As the fruit ripens, it becomes yellow externally, and the thick wall of flesh becomes aromatic, yellow, orange or various shades of red.

Papaya Fruit is eaten as a melon, included in salads and when unripe, it is cooked as a vegetable.  The seeds are said to have a similar flavor as capers.  The green fruit, stems and leaves are a rich source of a gummy, milky, white latex that contains the powerful enzyme, papain (in latex and exudate).  This protein-dissolving substance has not only been widely used for stomach and digestive disorders, but it is also included in commercial preparations as a meat tenderizer, chewing gum and as a stabilizing agent that is used to clarify beer. The fruit is usually pear-sized and has a central cavity filled with edible, pea-sized seed, which are said to have a similar flavor as capers.

Papaya Leaves are cooked and considered a green vegetable and are a rich source of a gummy, milky, white latex that contains the powerful enzyme, papain.  This protein-dissolving substance is an excellent remedy for stomach and digestive disorders.  Papain is so powerful that Papaya Leaves have been wrapped around meats to break down the fibers and tenderize them.  It is included in commercial preparations as a meat tenderizer and often used for that purpose in restaurants, and it also used commercially in chewing gums and as a stablizing agent that is used to clarify beer.

Papaya Leaves were even fed to animals to tenderize their flesh.  Some of Papaya Leaf’s constituents include the fermenting agent myrosin, alkaloids, rutin, resin, tannins, carpaine, dehydrocarpaines, pseudocarpaine, flavonols, benzylglucosinolate, linalool, malic acid, methyl salicylate, another enzyme, chymopapain (latex and exudate), calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, beta-carotene, B-vitamins and vitamins A, C and E.

Beneficial Uses:
Papaya Leaf is an excellent treatment for digestive disorders and extremely useful for any disturbances of the gastrointestinal tract.  Papain, the powerful enzyme in Papaya, helps to dissolve and digest protein, thus easing stomach ailments and indigestion.  (Because papain breaks down tough meat fibers, it is often used in restaurants and is the major ingredient in commercial meat tenderizers!)  Papaya has been effective in easing heartburn and is given to treat dyspepsia and gastric catarrh.  Papaya also stimulates the appetite.

Papaya Leaf’s enzyme, papain, not only digests protein, but it extends its activity to digesting carbohydrate. Papain also breaks down wheat gluten, which may be helpful for those suffering from Celiac disease; and those who have difficulty digesting starchy foods, such as breads, cereals and potatoes, might find great relief in including Papaya in their diets.

The papain in Papaya is thought to relieve acute prostate inflammation and may be very helpful in cases of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).  Clinical studies in Russia found that papain treatment reversed rectal lesions induced by extreme prostate enlargement in over 97 percent of the men treated.

The papain in Papaya is currently undergoing studies to investigate its efficacy in treating the herpes simplex virus and herpes zoster (shingles).

Another papayan enzyme, chymopapain, has been used in the treatment of slipped spinal disc and pinched nerves.

Since many stomach problems are the direct result of indigestion, use of Papaya appears to help prevent many ailments.  It stimulates digestive acids and the production of bile, which may also lead to a healthier liver and pancreas.

Papaya is said to stimulate the bowels in times of constipation and is also believed to be useful in treating inflammatory bowel disorders.

In many areas of the world, Papaya is used as a vermifuge, anthelmintic and amoebacide that eliminates worms and other parasites, and it is thought that the papain content digests the invaders, and Papaya’s latex also works as a dewormer by its purgative actions, increasing the movement of intestinal contents.

Contraindications:
People who take blood medication (Sulfinpyrazone) or blood thinning medication (Coumadin, aspirin, etc.) should consult with their physicians before taking this herb, as it may have anticoagulant properties.

Pregnant women should avoid Papaya, as it can be a uterine stimulant (papain apparently dissolves a protein(s) responsible for adhering the newly fertilized egg to the wall of the uterus).  Papaya in all its forms should never be taken by people with a latex allergy (causing anaphylactic shock).  Inhaling Papaya powder (high in the enzymes, papain and chymopapain, can induce allergies. Although papain digests carbohydrates, potato protein may cause papain to not work as well when taken at the same time.

GOLDEN SHOWER TREE KNOWN AS THE DISEASE KILLER

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

Cassia Fistula – Cultivation and uses

Golden shower tree

leaves in Hyderabad, India.

Cassia fistula is widely grown as an ornamental plant in tropical and subtropical areas. It blooms in late spring (May on the northern, November on the southern hemisphere); flowering is profuse, with trees being covered with yellow flora, with almost no leaf being seen. It is not recommended for dry climates. Growth for this tree is best in full sun on well-drained soil; it is drought- and salt- tolerant, but will be damaged by even short spells of freezing weather. It can be subject to mildew, leaf spot and root diseases.

In Ayurvedic medicine, Golden Shower Tree is known as aragvadha (“disease killer”). Its fruitpulp is used as mild laxative, against fevers, arthritis, vatavyadhi (nervous system diseases), all kinds of rakta-pitta (bleeding, such as hematemesis or hemorrhages), as well as cardiac conditions and stomach problems such as acid reflux. The root is considered a very strong purgative, and self-medication or any use without medical supervision is strongly advised against in Ayurvedic texts.

cassia-fistula-tree-1

Though its use in herbalism is attested to since millennia, there has been rather little research in modern times. While the purgative action is probably due to abundant 1,8-dihydroxyanthraquinone and derivates thereof, whether the reputed nervous system (anti-vatavyadhi) effects are real and if, what causes them, is not known. While many Fabaceae are a source of potent entheogens and other psychoactive compounds (see e.g. tryptamines), such plants are rarely found among the Caesalpinioideae.

The golden shower tree is the national flower of Thailand; its yellow leaves symbolize Thai royalty. A 2006-2007 flower festival, the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek, was named after the tree, which is most often called dok khuen or ratchaphruek in Thailand.[1]

The golden shower tree is the state flower of Kerala in India. The flowers are of ritual importance in the Vishu festival of Kerala state of India, and the tree was depicted on a 20 Indian rupees stamp. C. fistula is also featured on a 2003 joint Canadian-Thai design for a 48 cent stamp, part of a series featuring national emblems.

It has strong & very durable wood.There is please called “Ahala Kanuwa” in “Adems peek” “Sri Lanka” and its made by Cassia fistula(Ahala) heart wood.

It has reportedly been used in other, less wholesome, contexts.

Names and taxonomy

Being so conspicuous and widely planted, this tree has a number of common names. In English, it is usually known as Golden Shower Tree or Golden Shower Cassia. Other, less unambiguous names include Indian laburnum, “golden shower” or drumstick tree. It is known in Spanish-speaking countries as caña fistula.

Names from its native range and surrounding regions include:[1]

  • Assamese: Xonaru
  • Bangla: sonalu, bandar lathi
  • Chinese: ? bó lè (???: Taiwan), là cháng shù (“sausage tree”, ???)

TERMINALIA CATAPPA

180px-indian_almond_leaf1seed-pods-terminalia-catappasea-indian-almond-tree-from-underneath

Cultivation and uses

Terminalia catappa is widely grown in tropical regions of the world as an ornamental tree, grown for the deep shade its large leaves provide. The fruit is edible, tasting slightly acidic.

The wood is red, solid and has high water resistance; it has been utilized in Polynesia for making canoes. in telugu it is called as

BADAM CHETTU

The leaves contain several flavonoids (like kamferol or quercetin), several tannins (such as punicalin, punicalagin or tercatin), saponines and phytosterols. Due to this chemical richness, the leaves (and also the bark) are used in different traditional medicines for various purposes. For instances, in Taiwan fallen leaves are used as a herb to treat liver diseases. In Suriname, a tea made from the leaves is prescribed against dysentery and diarrhea. It is also thought that the leaves contain agents for prevention of cancers (although they have no demonstrated anticarcinogenic properties) and antioxidant as well as anticlastogenic characteristics.

NATURAL CURE FOR HEARTBURN & ACID REFLUX

Monday, September 7th, 2009

Dear Heartburn and Acid Reflux Sufferer,

Does your throat feel hairy and your chest burning?

werewolf-tooth-examined

If you’re tired of burning a hole through your esophagus, choking on stomach acid, propping your head up on thirteen pillows to sleep… all because of your painful heartburn and acid reflux, then this will be the most important message you ever read!

I was in your shoes, not too long ago. And I’ve found a cure that can help you, and I want you to know about it, because…

I NO LONGER SUFFER from

Acid Reflux, Heartburn, Hiatal

Hernia, Gastritis, Esophageal

Reflux, or Bile Reflux!

(Yes, I’ve suffered from them

all…)

medical-blue-2-at-work

You see, in 1976, I almost died during stomach surgery for some bleeding ulcers. The doctors operated on my stomach, but while in surgery, they connected a bile duct to my stomach, instead of my small intestine… which caused bile to creep up into my esophagus.

After surgery, I couldn’t sleep on my right side without bile building up… and the only way I could get rid of it was by vomiting.

For almost a year, I had to vomit about three or four times every day. It was disgusting, and I knew I couldn’t go on like this forever – the acid was killing me!

I pretty much tried everything to overcome my reflux nightmare.

I tried using 13 pillows. Then I bought one of those “hospital beds” that adjust so your head is propped up all the time.

Then, a miracle happened.

One night, I really slept well. I didn’t have any reflux! But I couldn’t figure out… why???

So I back-tracked, and the only thing I could remember doing before going to bed was eating an apple! So, I started doing some experiments with different brands of apples… and discovered…

There was one specific brand of apple that helped me completely wipe out my reflux!

apple-jpg

I started taking apples with me everywhere I went. And I found out I didn’t need to eat an entire apple… just one slice would do the trick.

So, with the apple, I had a reflux remedy  but not a full-fledged cure (since I still needed to take apples with me everywhere I went).

At first, the report contained just my “apple remedy”… but now, after doing a lot more research, and getting a TON of feedback from other reflux sufferers,

I have released an entirely new & improved version of our report… that has more than just a remedy, but a cure!

check-red-blackA CURE FOR ACID REFLUX AND HEARTBURN

That’s right, our new report explains how you can cure acid reflux, heartburn, bile reflux, esophageal reflux, and even hiatal hernia, using one of three different safe, natural remedies that we have discovered.

These three natural remedies have been proven to work thousands of times by our customers… quickly (within minutes), safely (no side effects), and without drugs!

We have taken all of our research and put it into a report that you can order and read on your computer just minutes from right now…

I want to help you end the suffering, the painful burning feeling in your chest, just behind your breastbone after eating, the burning sensation in your throat. I want to help stop your chest pains, your difficulty swallowing, and your sleepless nights because I’ve been there before…

And there’s really no good reason you should be taking drugs, when you can be cured using a natural remedy!

I want to help you end the suffering, the painful burning feeling in your chest, just behind your breastbone after eating, the burning sensation in your throat. I want to help stop your chest pains, your difficulty swallowing, and your sleepless nights because I’ve been there before…

Most doctors won’t tell you about these natural remedies…
Because they never learn about them in medical school!

You’re about to discover a safe & natural way to get long-lasting relief from your pain AND

Cure the cause of your disease.

Heartburn is the most common symptom of acid reflux, and it’s caused by stomach acid backing up into your esophagus. The pain is often described as a burning sensation, rising from the stomach into the center of your chest.

Occasional heartburn doesn’t necessarily mean you suffer from Acid Reflux Disease. However, if you experience heartburn more than twice per week, and if your heartburn gets worse after you eat or when you lie down or bend over, you probably have a more serious condition than heartburn. You probably have Acid Reflux Disease.

Acid Reflux Disease (also called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD) occurs when the reflux of stomach acid is frequent enough that it causes continual problems in your daily life, and/or results in damage to your esophagus.

Acid Reflux Disease and Heartburn can be Cured Quickly – Without Drugs, Using a Safe & Natural Home Remedy, Explained Fully in the “Heartburn & Reflux Remedy Report”

Ask for it here  heartburn report enquiry

You see, at the top of your stomach is a muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), which normally opens and closes allowing food to enter the stomach. It also prevents the acid in your stomach from backing up into your esophagus.

With GERD, the LES opens at inappropriate times, allowing acid from the stomach to leak into the esophagus, where it doesn’t belong.

Acid reflux disease can also lead to more serious medical conditions that require hospitalization and even surgery.

In some acid reflux patients, acid can be regurgitated into the lungs, causing a cough or wheezing.

Acid reflux in the throat can cause sore throat. If acid reaches the mouth, it can dissolve the enamel of the teeth.

Millions of people have the disease and suffer from the pain of heartburn every day.

Now You May Be Wondering…
Why You Shouldn’t Just Use Prescription Drugs?

WARNING: Many people who have Acid Reflux Disease take prescription drugs like Prilosec, Prevacid or Nexium. While these drugs may help treat symptoms in the short-term (4 to 8 weeks, maximum), long-term use can cause the body to produce an extra amount of the hormone called gastrin. Gastrin is the substance that tells your stomach to make more acid. There are gastrin receptors on the esophageal, pancreatic, and gastric cancer cells, and over-production of gastrin can cause these cancer cells to grow too large, thus greatly increasing the risk of getting cancer in these areas.

Another problem with prescription drugs is the fact that many people take more than one medication, and the effects of one drug can amplify or alter the effects of another.

This can lead to serious reactions or even death in some cases. These reactions can also occur with over-the-counter medications, too.

Prescription drugs also increase the risk of recreational drug use. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that an estimated 4 million people use prescription drugs non-medically, which can lead to addictions. Also, overdosing, whether intentional or unintentional, can lead to severe body damage or death.

Prescription drugs can also build up toxins in your body, especially as you age – because your metabolism slows down, and your body is less able to process the medication.

Don’t you agree that you’d be better off using a natural home remedy, instead of prescription drugs?

And What About Antacids?…

Antacids (such as Pepcid, Zantac, Tagamet, Rolaids, and Tums) only mask the underlying problem of your heartburn or acid reflux. Most antacids contain excessive amounts of minerals such as Sodium, Aluminum, Calcium, and Magnesium. Excessive mineral imbalances can be very harmful, leading to cancer, hypertension or even Alzheimer’s Disease.

So as you’ve learned, there are many serious reasons why you need to try a safe & natural home remedy, instead of prescription drugs or antacids!
