GREEN PAPAYA - Gout Treatment
Share the following citations by Professor Lai from the China School of Pharmacy, as this healthy food knowledge can be beneficial for every one :
Cut green papaya into small cubes, place into the water, bring to boil, then add green tea leaves, similar to the tea-making process. Clinical tests show frequent drinking of this formula can produce more effective for gout treatment.
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 selection of the Green Papaya as tea pot, pick those whose shape are 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 to papaya, you may 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 yeilding suitable size fruit, he would share the fruits with family and friends.
The papaya fruit is not ripe when the skin is still green in colour. Generally, the papaya fruit takes about four months to fully mature and ripe, but there 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.
Green papaya can also be used as ingredients for cooking recipes besides for making healing tea beverage. Just cut them into cubes, and boil with the ribs ; or even slicing the green papaya into fine long pieces and fried with garlic. The dish can be very tasty, and with no adverse effects on the human body.
