A circulating advisory on Facebook tells about ‘Papaya as good treatment for Uric Acid Problem.” But like any other advisory, we need to dig in deeper to determine the validity of the advisory, right? And after further research and asking around, YES ….. GREEN PAPAYA is more than just a fruit! It is great for uric acid problems, too.
This is the exact advisory on Facebook:
Papaya for Uric Acid Problem !!!
Just try it if you’ve got uric acid after all no harm done.
This is a really effective, just mix green papaya cubes to the ordinary green tea. My cousin’s brother tried and found it very effective.
I have also shared with a friend with gout to try this (his “toe joints” started to deform), after a week of drinking this formula there is significant improvement,;and after two weeks, the toe joints healed and reverted to normal state.
It is almost three years now, the joint pain is gone, but he maintains the intake between 1-3 times monthly to avoid relapse.
Other friends suffering from years of gout problem have also recovered. It is good for all, even those without gout. Good formula! Do share with the people in need!
An improved sequence by Professor Lai from the China School of Pharmacy :
Cut green papaya into small cubes, place into the water, bring to boil, then add tea leaves, similar to the tea-making process.
Clinical tests show that this brings better effects for treatment of gout, subject to frequent drinking of this formula.
Mr. Liu Qing, Chief of the Rende Town in Tainan, was suffering for years from severe stomach pain around the posterior wall of stomach.
He used green papaya as a tea-pot to prepare the family tea daily. After a month, his chronic disease condition was much improved.
His family members with high uric acid were also healed by the same papaya tea.
For this, Mr. Liu planted a lot of papaya to share with relatives and friends with similar sickness.
According to Mr. Liu, in selecting the green papaya as tea-pot, pick those the shape of which is fat and short, with larger capacity.
Cut off the top part of the papaya, clear away the seeds, open a small hole at the upper side wall to facilitate pouring of tea.
Create a small ventilation hole at top cover, put in the tea leaves, pour in boiling water, place the top cover back onto the papaya, you may also use the toothpicks to secure the top cover.
Similar to normal process of preparing tea.
Liu like to use Oolong tea as the taste is good.
He was pleasantly surprised that the stomach pains he suffered for many years was healed after a month of drinking tea from the green papaya pot, without taking any other medication.
He passed some green papaya leaves to a friend who worked at a Medical Center to test and analyze the content.
The tests confirmed that the healthy enzyme present in papaya is beneficial to human health.
Now as papaya in Mr. Liu’s orchard is yielding suitable size fruits, he would share the fruits with family and friends.
Xu Fuchang, an experienced papaya farmer, said green papaya means unripe papaya, where the skin is still green in color.
Generally, the papaya takes about four months to fully mature and ripen, but the healing effect would be lost after it is fully ripe.
Green papaya should be harvested when the papaya is approximately three months old, when the fruit is still firm, and the “papaya milk” contains high papaya enzyme and other healthy ingredients.
Not only the green papaya can be used in tea drinking, you may also cut them into cubes, and boil with ribs, or even slicing the green papaya into fine long pieces and fried with garlic, very tasty, and no adverse effects on the human body.”
Is this true? Well, further research tell us that Papayas contain “papain,” which is a proteolytic enzyme that helps the body maintain an alkaline state, thus preventing the build-up of uric acid. So, it’s a big YES!
More over, there’s an anti-inflammatory virtue from the papain in papaya which greatly reduce inflammation in gout and other diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and asthma.
This papain enzyme is so powerful that it is also said to digest an amazing 200 times its own weight in protein and assists our body’s own enzymes in assimilating the maximum nutritional value from the food we eat.
As mentioned in the above advisory, there are many ways to use papaya to lower uric acid and treat gout. Other than enjoying the taste of papaya, we are also assured that we are helping our body to cope with uric acid problems as well as other
However, there’s a reminder to consult your physician before consuming a lot of green papaya if you are on medication for gout.
