  1. I love papayas, and have been aware for a very long time of the health benefits of starting your day with a slice of the fruit, but I’ve never seen them on sale with the leaves. Are these sold separately?

  2. No, but however you can plant the fruit, and wait for the leaves to grow before you start using it.

  3. I had dengue fever less than 2 weeks ago and it really felt bad, I couldn’t stand easily cause my leg muscles felt sore. Good thing we learned about the potential cure papaya leaves may bring to this ailment (there’s no harm in trying, right?) so my mother took two fresh leaves of papaya, (good thing I live in a tropical country, the Philippines! and our neighbor has three papaya trees ^_^) crushed them and added a bit of water to encourage the juice to come out and made me drink it. I only did this for two days as my dengue fever has not worsened so if yours is worse, drink the juice as often as you can. As the doctors would tell you, there’s no medical cure for dengue but oh well, I’m fine now and am able to work again. Mind you, it is bitter but since it’s only about 2-3 tablespoons, it’s easy to get over the taste, just drink plenty of water afterwards. :)

  4. well, i must say, this is really interesting, since there is an ouy break of dengue here in trinidad and tobago, people have died, and yet the cure is in most people back yards, i certainly will pass this on and may god bless you david for such wonderful information!

  8. My sons Platlets count is very low.He is only 4 yrs old.Somebody told its good to give him PApaya leaves extract juice.I live in USA.Wondering from where do i get Papaya leaves.Any suggestions?

  9. My sister told me that papaya leaves have health benefits and she said she didn’t know where to get them. It so happened that I have one growing in my backyard and I told her. The only thing is, I was told that my papaya tree is ‘male’ because the flowers are upright. Should the leaves be just effective? And how do you convert this ‘male’ free into a ‘female’ so that it will bear fruits?

  10. #9 Carmel… Male papayas cannot become female and vice-versa.
    Male papayas pollinate the female for it to fruit.
    After eating a papaya, scatter the seeds in your garden,
    and let nature take its course. Soon, you would have a
    forest of male and female papayas to eat and sell.
    #8 Monika… On a weekend, visit a organic farmers’ market.
    Recount to them your predicament and I am sure
    they can provide you with papaya leaves.
    Also, buy a papaya then plant the seeds.

  14. We cannot really prove that papaya leaves extract is the cure for dengue, but when my brother caught dengue for the 2nd time, my mom and I tried to give him the extract. I pounded some leaves, placed it in a thin cloth and squeezed its juice with my bare hands. Do not add water. They say its best when pure. We let him take 2 tablespoons a day, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. My brother said it really tastes bitter but just gulping a lot of water or juice will do to flush the taste. We were amazed because his platelet count went up the following day! We continued giving him the extract for another day and he was discharged on the 3rd day.

  39. Hi, i got dengue in 2004 and platelets went back to normal but 10 months later platelets went down to 23,000 then 15,000. Then diagnosed with ITP. Used steroids (Calcort) which worked for a year and a half. Came off steroids and a year later back on steroids as platelets dropped.Repeated pattern on and off steroids over the next 4 years. Last took steroids in 2009. Platelets started dropping in October 2011. By this month May, 2012 platelets dropped to 118,000. Read about papaya leaf extract and took it for a week. Today, one week later, my count is 151,000!! I hope it continues to go up as i do not want to go back on steroids. I believe the papaya leaf is working.
