The Wonders of Green Papaya
Here is something I wrote sometime ago which I’d like to share again:
‘Most chronic illness is generated from the gut and in particular what enters your blood stream through the intestinal lining.’
Since time immemorial the paw paw, sometimes called papaya (carica papaya), has been a crucial ingredient in natural healing, and has also been part of the staple diet of many of the planets indigenous peoples. Papain is the living enzyme within the flesh of both a green and ripe paw paw, and is renowned for its ability to break down protein.
There are some amazing stories about the wonders of the paw paw, but I will preface what I am about to share with you with the following words of caution; in this day and age it is still important to consult a medical practitioner to determine any health issues and to listen to what options they might have to offer.
From a scientific perspective paw paw contains acetogenins which modulate the production of ATP or adenosine triphosphate in mitochondria of cancer cells. The enzyme in the paw paw is also referred to as a ‘protein eater’ because that’s exactly what it does, as well as seek out ‘high energy’ users within the cellular environment. An example of these types of cells are cancer cells which use high levels of energy to stay alive.
If you are fit and well, your digestive system is working properly, and you have no diagnosed cancerous condition, then processed (extract or dried) forms of the fruit are ok to use to maintain optimum gut health. Remember, it loves to eat up protein forms like parasites and bacteria so if you don’t have a great deal of these in your system, then supplements or leaf tea are not going to be very effective.
In fact, if you are perfectly healthy and clean, then I recommend you sit back with a slice of ripe paw paw with a squeeze of lime on top of it each morning and relax. Now I take regular updates of Paw Paw – usually my green papaya powder with water added and a squeeze of lime. For much of my life I had trouble with a hiatal hernia and suffered from the most chronic reflux. I don’t anymore because my gut – my warp core of my personal Starship – is processing proteins more efficiently than before and has developed a certain ‘operational efficiency’ per se. When I don’t need to take it, especially as I have virtually cut ALL heavy proteins from my diet (red meat, pork and heavy cheeses in particular, milk and flour based products) then my gut feels good with no bloating, belching or flatulence.
Based on the number of people who visit my farmers’ market stall every weekend, I can confidently say that much of the Australian population suffers from a gut issue characterised by reflux, heartburn, indigestion, bloating or digestive discomfort. For me the response to taking green papaya powder was almost instant; after more than 40-years of suffering from digestive dysfunction I felt relief. It got better every night from there on and after a few months my gut was almost back to normal.
Now I take regular doses of papain, usually through my green papaya powder with water added and a squeeze of lime, but also via a tea brewed from the paw paw leaf on occasion. For much of my life I had trouble with a hiatal hernia and suffered from chronic reflux. I don’t anymore because my gut, or what I like to call the warp core of my personal starship is processing proteins more efficiently than before and has developed a kind of ‘operational efficiency’ over time. When I don’t take it, then my gut still feels good with no bloating, belching or flatulence.
