This is what Nick has to say:
"About 10 days ago I had a bad case of gout in my right foot.I started to take the anti-inflammation drug Voltaren to reduce the swell & pain in order to be able to walk & play tennis. Then I remembered about the article sent earlier by Dr Khoo P S & Jin Lek on green papaya & gout in 2010.
I blended cubes of green papaya, after removing the seeds but with the skin, together with some water, poured the puree into a glass, added more water to make it into a
drinkable portion, and drank it.... at first two days: 2 - 3 times a day.
The gout quickly disappeared by about 4th - 5th day. If you can't drink it add a table spoon of honey. In any case I was drinking it as an "alternative medicine" and not for enjoyment. I still take the "medicine" daily until further notice. If you have gout, try it, it works!!!”
Another testimony states:
"This is a really effective, just mix green papaya cubes to the ordinary green tea, my cousin-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 heal and revert 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!"
Green Papaya eliminates Uric Acid Problems 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 analyse 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 to unripe papaya, where the skin is still green in colour. 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 the 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.
