I received the comment below from our friend Keith Daniels regarding my post yesterday on Hemorrhagic Fever. Keith currently lives in Dolega, Panama. I thought his comment interesting enough to do as a separate post.
There is a cure for the deadly hemorrhagic part of Dengue. It is currently used in most of South East Asia and in South Africa. Note that it does not relieve any of the painful symptoms of regular Dengue–it just keeps you alive so you can enjoy them. There is also a easy way to lower number of mosquito and other insect bites that you get… to almost zero.
The fatal part of the hemorrhagic version, is from the virus preventing the production of blood platelets that prevent you from bleeding out externally from cuts… and internally as well if the platelet count gets too low.
The cure is a tablespoon of crushed or ground papaya leaves, not the little ones nor the big old leaves, but the ones that are still semi tender, taken 1 to 3 times in a day. Results are that the bleeding is over in less than 12 hours. The platelet count will go at least back to normal, if not higher. Last time I checked, they did not know exactly how this worked–nor why one dose sometimes cured the problem for good. You can Google “dengue papaya South Africa” (less the quotes) and find out more.
Keith made this further comment in a separate email to me earlier today:
I am not up to date on what is being done or researched, about Papaya. That is why I gave a Google search pattern to search for. But if you have any specific questions, that might trigger some new memory recovery of info I have forgotten…
Theoretically this should work on any disease that causes a drop in platelet count, and should definitely be tried on them.
Note that allergy reactions are possible with papaya. I would try a skin reaction test by rubbing the crushed leaf or seeds on an area of tender skin and see if there is a reaction.
Thanks Keith for your comment.
