PAW PAW Recipe
(as generously provided by Racquel)

First find someone who has access to paw-paw trees that have not been sprayed with pesticides. Brisbane and the Gold Coast has a good supply, you can find them in many backyards. NSW has them too. A couple of sources are recommended so the smaller trees don't get stripped. Australia Post is fine with them being sent by via Express Post satchels.

Racquel's Recipe:

  1. Cut off the leaves and stems from the tree (not the fruit)
  2. Wash them with clean water
  3. Pat Dry
  4. Roughly chop in pieces 2-3cm
  5. Fill saucepan with leaves and stems then add water (pressure cooker helps the smell)
  6. Bring to boil
  7. Simmer 2 hours
  8. Strain liquid into a large bottle.
  9. Discard paw-paw stems and leaves

Drink 1 glass 250ml three times a day. Shake bottle before pouring. Refrigerate the rest (we used to make 2 litre batches)

 

  • Liquid lasts about 5-7 days before fermenting.
  • Leaves last 7-10 days in the fridge before cooking, but are better used fresh.
  • It tastes foul
  • It stinks
  • It looks like green slimy mud

The Aborigines said that paw-paw heals from the inside out. They also said to take 3 big spoonfuls of raw molasses 3 times a day. (maybe it helps with the taste) 

 

An American discovery that paw paw leaves may cure cancer is old news for a Gold Coast bookie who was extolling the plant's virtues 14 years ago.

Stan Sheldon, then 70, told the bulletin in May 1978 how he beat cancer by following an old Aboriginal recipe and drinking the extract of boiled pawpaw leaves.

In 1962 he was given five months to live when leading specialists found he had rapidly spreading cancer in both lungs,

But after two months of drinking his pawpaw “tea” the specialists were astonished to find all signs of his malignancy had disappeared.

Cancer researchers in the United States were reported yesterday to have isolated a chemical compound in the pawpaw tree which was claimed to be a million times stronger than the most widely used anti cancer drug, Adriamycin.

The anti cancer substance, soon to be tested by the US National Cancer Institute, was found throughout the pawpaw tree, but primarily in twigs and small branches.

The Sheldon treatment involved cramming as many paw-paw leaves and stems as possible into a saucepan before adding water. After boiling, the mixture was allowed to simmer for two hours before being drained off.

Mr Sheldon drank about 200 ml of the unpleasant tasting brew three times a day. In addition, he took three teaspoons of raw molasses a day - another tip from the Aboriginal pharmacopoeia.

Back in 1978, Mr Sheldon was able to produce medical documentation and letters from his amazed specialists to back up his story.

But he refused to label the pawpaw treatment as a “miracle cure for cancer”.

 

“All I am doing is reporting events that have happened”, he said. He decided to go public after a woman cancer victim earlier told the Bulletin how she had lost faith in doctors and was drinking a daily brew made from paw paw leaves in an attempt to beat her disease.

Mr Sheldon cautioned against foregoing accepted and proven methods of cancer treatment in favour of a herbal treatment such as paw paw leaves. But he said a number of friends had subsequently beaten cancer after trying the paw-paw tea.

The Gold Coast branch president of the Australian Medical Association, oncologist Dr Rob Nitchins said yesterday [ed: some years ago now] news of the possible paw paw cancer cure did not surprise him.

 

 

I found your article about Paw Paw Leaves interesting. Especially the doctor's claim about Stan Sheldon maybe never having cancer at all.

He did. And he cured it.

While living in Canberra, my Boss, Brian Wolff, who was 48 was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma - lung cancer in April 1993. He was a long-time heavy smoker, smoking about sixty Camel no-filter cigarettes a day. He was given 6-8 months to live and told to put his affairs in order. The tumour was the size of a grapefruit, sitting to the left of his breastbone. A biopsy and all relevant tests were done and chemotherapy offered if he wanted it, though they didn't believe it would change the prognosis.

Sadly, I told my Dad who lives in Perth. He told his bookie (god knows why) who lives in Darwin. The bookie's name was Eric Sheldon, Stan's son. Eric told dad about the paw paw brew and sent Stan's newspaper article and doctors reports to Perth. Dad then sent it to me, I gave it to Brian. Brian was a massive sceptic and didn't believe in any alternative therapies. He didn't believe in doctors either, having hardly ever been ill in his life. As he was reading the newspaper article about Stan's cure something amazing happened. The 'then provider' of pawpaw leaves to residents in states other than Qld, was a Mr Vern Forrest. Vern was a father figure and great friend to Brian in Albury many years before, both owning a racehorse together. I will never forget that moment when Brian read his name aloud exclaiming, "I don't believe it, there can only be one Vern Forrest!"

Brian phoned Vern at Burleigh Heads who recognized his voice immediately and said, "Don't you worry Wolfie, you'll be right in no time," and the circle around Australia was connected. Vern sent us paw paw leaves for some time and we had back up supplies with other friends living there. Brian drank the pawpaw leaf tea for months. 1 glass of 200-250ml three times a day. It tastes disgusting and smells vile. The remedy also called for one spoonful of raw molasses three times a day, but Brian was diabetic so he skipped this bit.

After about 8 weeks during a check up, the doctors were stunned to find the tumor had disappeared. They did more tests to confirm this finding and said "No one recovers from a Small..." (small cell carcinoma) His doctor thought it may have been the chemotherapy which had just started and was skeptical of attributing the miracle to the Pawpaw brew but we expected that. Many months later, Brian chose to have Radiotherapy as well and the radiologists could not find a shadow of the cancer to eradicate. They had to use his original diagnostic tests to pinpoint the target area. He still went ahead with radiation.

Brian lived cancer free and very healthy for another 3 years after which the cancer returned fast and furious. The fight had gone from Brian this time and he surrendered to the cancer which acted swiftly. He passed away over 4 years after original diagnosis of 6-8 months to live. He cherished his last few years as one who is given a new chance at life. He told us about the intense sublime beauty and perfection of the sunset as only one who has glimpsed their own death can. He was a remarkable man and this was a remarkable time in my life. We supplied many people with information and contacts during '93 - '95 who also tried this remedy. Cancer is called the disease of resignation - sometimes this remedy helped, sometimes it didn't.

I just wanted to share my story. I'm on the hunt for more pawpaw leaves now as I found out today a friend has just been diagnosed with lung cancer.

 

 

Other ailments that we have seen Papaya work wonders on include:

  • Allergies
  • Cancer - all varieties
  • Colitis
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Dyspepsia
  • Gas
  • Gum Ailments
  • Lack of Stomach (HCl) Acid
  • Liver
  • Mucous Membranes
  • Obesity
  • Parasites
  • Pyorrhea
  • Stomach Weakness
  • Tumors
  • Weight Loss
  • Worms
  • Wounds

Papaya contains Papain which is an enzyme similar to Pepsin which is produced by the stomach. Mixing goats milk and Papaya blended together is a very close resemblance to human breast milk. Papaya has one of the highest enzyme contents of any herb worldwide.

 

Eating about 4 dry or straight from the plant Papaya seeds with each meal helps people with digestive problems. You can also dry them and use them in a pepper grinder as a spice and grind it over your food. Papaya seed tea works wonders for stomach problems because of its high natural papain.

Papaya tea also helps you to digest protein easily. Use 1 tablespoon of the seeds to one cup of boiling water and let stand for 20 minutes. If you want you can simmer the mixture for a few minutes, this will get more papain out of the the tea.

If you have any gum issues like Pyorrhea then one really great remedy is make up some Papaya tea and leave it overnight then soak gums in the strained tea for 15 minutes. This will get rid of any bacteria and dead tissue that is gathered around the teeth. Papaya eats away any dead tissue but does not destroy healthy good tissue. This same method is used for people who have a formation of tartar on their teeth. As an additional mouthwash you can gargle with liquid chlorophyll - it works wonders.

At Middle Path we use Pawpaw extracts - chiefly tinctures we prepare here at Middle Path from organically-grown plants - for a range of conditions, including cancerous ones.

 

 

Do you feel overwhelmed with the frustration of uncomfortable digestive,inflammatory or immune problems?

Do you worry that you are doomed to suffer forever?

The powerful enzymes of Paw Paw Leaf could finally be the answer to your problem.

 

 

Research shows that Papaya Leaf may be an excellent treatment for digestive disorders and may be extremely useful for any disturbances of the gastro intestinal tract. Papain, the powerful enzyme in Papaya, isknown to help to dissolve and digest protein, this may ease stomach ailments and indigestion. (Because papain breaks down tough meat fibre, it is often used in restaurants and is the major ingredient in commercial meat tenderizers!) Papaya may been effective in easing heartburn and has been given to treat dyspepsia and gastric catarrh. Papaya may also stimulates the appetite.

Papaya Leaf's enzyme, papain, may not only digest protein, but it may extend its activity to digesting carbohydrate. Papain may break down wheat gluten, which may be helpful for those suffering from Celiac disease; and those who have difficulty digesting starchy foods, such as breads, cereals and potatoes, might find great relief in including Papaya in their diets.

 

Since many stomach problems are the direct result of indigestion, it appears that the use of Papaya may help prevent many ailments. It may stimulate digestive acids and the production of bile, which may also lead to a healthier liver and pancreas.

 

The papain in Papaya is thought to relieve acute prostate inflammation and may be very helpful in cases of benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Clinical studies in Russia found that papain treatment reversed rectal lesions induced by extreme prostate enlargement in over 97 percent of the men treated.

Since many stomach problems are the direct result of indigestion, it appears that the use of Papaya may help prevent many ailments. It may stimulate digestive acids and the production of bile, which may also lead to a healthier liver and pancreas.

Papaya is said to stimulate the bowels in times of constipation and is also believed that it may be useful in treating inflammatory bowel disorders.

In many areas of the world, Papaya is used as a vermifuge, anthelmintic and amoebacide that eliminates worms and other Parasites, and it is thought that the papain content may digest the invaders, and Papaya's latex also may work as a dewormer by its purgative actions, increasing the movement of intestinal contents.

 

 

Cancer help

Research shows that papaya leaf extract and or its tea may have dramatic cancer-fighting properties against a broad range of tumours, backing a belief held in a number of folk traditions.

University of Florida researcher Nam Dang and colleagues in Japan, in a report published in the Journal of Ethno pharmacology, documented papaya's anticancer effect against tumours of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas.

The researchers said papaya extract did not have any toxic effects on normal cells, avoiding a common side effect of many cancer treatments.

Researchers exposed 10 different types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumours in all the cultures.

 

 

It has been claimed Papaya leaf juice may have reversed cancer in many people living on the Gold Coast in Australia.

Harold W. Tietze in his book Papaya the Medicine Tree, describes how to make the juice and tells the stories of many cancer survivors who reportedly used the juice to get rid of their cancer.

The story of how Stan Sheldon cured himself of cancer by drinking the boiled extract of pawpaw leaves was first told in the Gold Coast Bulletin in 1978.

Now research in the United States has given scientific support to his claim, isolating a chemical compound in the pawpaw tree which is reported to be a million times stronger than the strongest anti-cancer drug. Mr Sheldon, says the discovery does not surprise him. “I was dying from cancer in both lungs when it was suggested to me as an old Aboriginal remedy” he said. “I tried it for two months and then I was required to have a chest x-ray during those compulsory TB checks they used to have. They told me both lungs were clear." "I told my specialists and they didn’t believe me until they had carried out their own tests." "Then they scratched their heads and recommended I carry on drinking the extract I boiled out of the papaw leaves."

That was in 1962. The cancer never recurred. Since then Mrs Sheldon has passed the recipe onto other cancer victims. 'Sixteen of them were cured,' he said. Mr Sheldon's involves boiling and simmering fresh pawpaw leaves and stems in a pan for two hours before draining and bottling the extract. He said the mixture could be kept in a refrigerator though it may ferment after three or four days."

 

 

A papaya leaf extract and its tea have dramatic cancer-fighting properties against a broad range of tumours, backing a belief held in folk traditions, researchers say.

University of Florida researcher Nam Dang and colleagues in Japan documented papaya's anticancer effect against tumours of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas.

The researchers used an extract made from dried papaya leaves, and the effects were stronger when cells received higher doses of papaya leaf tea.

Professor Dang and the other scientists showed that papaya leaf extract boosted the production of key signalling molecules called Th1-type cytokines, which help regulate the immune system.

This could lead to therapeutic treatments that use the immune system to fight cancers, they said.

Papaya has been used as a folk remedy for a variety of ailments in many parts of the world, especially Asia.

Professor Deng said the results were consistent with reports from indigenous populations in Australia and his native Vietnam.

The researchers said papaya extract did not have any toxic effects on normal cells, avoiding a common side effect of many cancer treatments.

Researchers exposed 10 types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumours in all the cultures.

Professor Dang and a colleague have applied to patent the process to distil the papaya extract through the University of Tokyo.



.....Papaya Leaves, Fresh cut the morning we ship them. Guaranteed to please. We send them by Priority Mail. We use no sprays on them and they are grown organicly. Click pic to enlarge.

Dang, a professor of medicine and medical director of the UF Shands Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office, said,

“Based on what I have seen and heard in a clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstrable toxicity; it seems like you could take it for a long time — as long as it is effective,”.

Researchers exposed 10 different types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumors in all the cultures.

Papaya/Pawpaw Papaya (Carica papaya) originates from tropical American countries. Today Papaya is cultivated in most tropical countries around the world. The Papaya with the Latin name carica papaya is called Paw Paw in Australia and New Zealand. This is in no way related to the Paw Paw in North America that has the Latin name asimina tribola, though both are medicinal plants. Papaya leaf juice is claimed to have reversed cancer in many people living on the Gold Coast in Australia. Harold W. Tietze in his book Papaya The Medicine Tree, describes how to make the juice and tells the stories of many cancer survivors who reportedly used the juice to get rid of their cancer.

Now research in the United States has given scientific support to his claim, isolating a chemical compound in the pawpaw tree which is reported to be a million times stronger than the strongest anti- cancer drug. Mr Sheldon, says the discovery does not surprise him. “I was dying from cancer in both lungs when it was suggested to me as an old Aboriginal remedy” he said. “I tried it for two months and then I was required to have a chest x-ray during those compulsory TB checks they used to have.

The cancer never recurred. Since then Mrs Sheldon has passed the recipe onto other cancer victims. “Sixteen of them were cured,” he said. Mr Sheldon’s involves boiling and simmering fresh pawpaw leaves and stems in a pan for two hours before draining and bottling the extract. He said the mixture could be kept in a refrigerator though it may ferment after three or four days.“

The recipe is as follows: Wash and partly dry several medium-size papaya leaves. Cut them up like cabbage and place them in a saucepan with 2 quarts/ litres of water. Bring the water and leaves to the boil and simmer without a lid until the water is reduced by half.

Strain the liquid and bottle in glass containers. The concentrate will keep in the refrigerator for three to four days. If it becomes cloudy, it should be discarded. The recommended dosage in the original recipe is 3 Tablespoons/ 50ml three times a day. It is recommended to read Papaya The Medicine Tree for the interesting stories of "incurable” people who have used this extract to beat their cancer, and for other medicinal uses of papaya.

The leaves have also been reported successful used when dried and ground. The astonishing effects of the pawpaw have also been proved in tests on mice. The results were very impressive; tumors found in humans were being injected in mice and during treatment with papaw were disappearing. Pawpaw twigs contain acetogenins - active compounds that modulate the production of ATP in mitochondria of specific cells - which affects the viability of specific cells and the growth of blood vessels that nourish them. A recent clinical study with over 100 participants showed that the pawpaw extract, containing a mixture of acetogenins, supports the body's normal cells during times of cellular stress.

Since 1976 Dr. McLaughlin, professor at Purdue University, at the request of National Cancer Institute, lead a team of two other professors in studying the effectiveness of herbs on tumors. Pawpaw proved to be the most effective out of about 3,500 plants. Dr. McLaughlin found around 50 biologically active ingredients in this plant. Acetogenins are the medically effective ingredients of this herb. Papaya leaves can fight cancer? Some of the greatest cancer scientists in history believed that enzymes can treat and help prevent cancer. Papaya leaves have an enzyme papain. Old school thought is that enzymes help digestion. New medicine in the last fifteen years has proven in clinical studies that enzymes taken by mouth (oral enzymes) can make it past your stomach to treat and help prevent cancer. In the lab and in clinical studies papain has proven to be a cancer fighting enzyme. Papain is found in the papaya leaf and in many cultures is brewed in a tea to fight and prevent cancer. Papain has been proven in labs and in clinical studies to eat away the protein fibrous coating on cancer cells so that your body can kill the cancer. Papain enzyme is most active at about 150 degrees F, a perfect tea. Traditionally, the dried leaves of the papaya have been boiled for a tea for cancer and other treatments. The tea tastes very much like green tea.

Enzymes have very few side-effects and still are as natural as orange juice. Most people feel more mentally alert, and when taken on an empty stomach, often euphoric. Papaya leaves are natural so the FDA does not get involved in approving them. Many studies have been done proving the positive effects of enzyme therapy during cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Enzymes help your body digest "dead" foods that we eat which often become toxic to our bodies later in life. Our bodies make enzymes from our pancreas, but our American diet overworks our pancreas by the time most of us reach age 25. Drink papaya tea for life! Papaya leaf can help reduce acid secretions, relieve gas and sour stomach, and alleviate chronic diarrhea for most people. Some people have an allergic reaction that actually provokes those symptoms. Papaya leaf tea or decoction can be profoundly helpful with heartburn, but it can also act as a purgative, and too much can upset the stomach. An infusion of the leaves makes the toughest meat tender when rubbed with it or cooked in it.

They told me both lungs were clear." "I told my specialists and they didn’t believe me until they had carried out their own tests." "Then they scratched their heads and recommended I carry on drinking the extract I boiled out of the papaw leaves."

That was in 1962. The cancer never recurred. Since then Mrs Sheldon has passed the recipe onto other cancer victims. 'Sixteen of them were cured,' he said. Mr Sheldon's involves boiling and simmering fresh pawpaw leaves and stems in a pan for two hours before draining and bottling the extract. He said the mixture could be kept in a refrigerator though it may ferment after three or four days."

 

 

A papaya leaf extract and its tea have dramatic cancer-fighting properties against a broad range of tumours, backing a belief held in folk traditions, researchers say.

University of Florida researcher Nam Dang and colleagues in Japan documented papaya's anticancer effect against tumours of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas.

The researchers used an extract made from dried papaya leaves, and the effects were stronger when cells received higher doses of papaya leaf tea.

Professor Dang and the other scientists showed that papaya leaf extract boosted the production of key signalling molecules called Th1-type cytokines, which help regulate the immune system.

This could lead to therapeutic treatments that use the immune system to fight cancers, they said.

Papaya has been used as a folk remedy for a variety of ailments in many parts of the world, especially Asia.

Professor Deng said the results were consistent with reports from indigenous populations in Australia and his native Vietnam.

The researchers said papaya extract did not have any toxic effects on normal cells, avoiding a common side effect of many cancer treatments.

Researchers exposed 10 types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumours in all the cultures.

Professor Dang and a colleague have applied to patent the process to distil the papaya extract through the University of Tokyo.

Dang, a professor of medicine and medical director of the UF Shands Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office, said,

“Based on what I have seen and heard in a clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstrable toxicity; it seems like you could take it for a long time — as long as it is effective,”.

Researchers exposed 10 different types of cancer cell cultures to four strengths of papaya leaf extract and measured the effect after 24 hours. Papaya slowed the growth of tumors in all the cultures.

Papaya/Pawpaw Papaya (Carica papaya) originates from tropical American countries. Today Papaya is cultivated in most tropical countries around the world. The Papaya with the Latin name carica papaya is called Paw Paw in Australia and New Zealand. This is in no way related to the Paw Paw in North America that has the Latin name asimina tribola, though both are medicinal plants. Papaya leaf juice is claimed to have reversed cancer in many people living on the Gold Coast in Australia. Harold W. Tietze in his book Papaya The Medicine Tree, describes how to make the juice and tells the stories of many cancer survivors who reportedly used the juice to get rid of their cancer.

Now research in the United States has given scientific support to his claim, isolating a chemical compound in the pawpaw tree which is reported to be a million times stronger than the strongest anti- cancer drug. Mr Sheldon, says the discovery does not surprise him. “I was dying from cancer in both lungs when it was suggested to me as an old Aboriginal remedy” he said. “I tried it for two months and then I was required to have a chest x-ray during those compulsory TB checks they used to have.

Mr Sheldon’s involves boiling and simmering fresh pawpaw leaves and stems in a pan for two hours before draining and bottling the extract. He said the mixture could be kept in a refrigerator though it may ferment after three or four days.“

The recipe is as follows: Wash and partly dry several medium-size papaya leaves. Cut them up like cabbage and place them in a saucepan with 2 quarts/ litres of water. Bring the water and leaves to the boil and simmer without a lid until the water is reduced by half.

Strain the liquid and bottle in glass containers. The concentrate will keep in the refrigerator for three to four days. If it becomes cloudy, it should be discarded. The recommended dosage in the original recipe is 3 Tablespoons/ 50ml three times a day. It is recommended to read Papaya The Medicine Tree for the interesting stories of "incurable” people who have used this extract to beat their cancer, and for other medicinal uses of papaya.

The leaves have also been reported successful used when dried and ground. The astonishing effects of the pawpaw have also been proved in tests on mice. The results were very impressive; tumors found in humans were being injected in mice and during treatment with papaw were disappearing. Pawpaw twigs contain acetogenins - active compounds that modulate the production of ATP in mitochondria of specific cells - which affects the viability of specific cells and the growth of blood vessels that nourish them. A recent clinical study with over 100 participants showed that the pawpaw extract, containing a mixture of acetogenins, supports the body's normal cells during times of cellular stress.

Since 1976 Dr. McLaughlin, professor at Purdue University, at the request of National Cancer Institute, lead a team of two other professors in studying the effectiveness of herbs on tumors. Pawpaw proved to be the most effective out of about 3,500 plants. Dr. McLaughlin found around 50 biologically active ingredients in this plant. Acetogenins are the medically effective ingredients of this herb. Papaya leaves can fight cancer? Some of the greatest cancer scientists in history believed that enzymes can treat and help prevent cancer. Papaya leaves have an enzyme papain. Old school thought is that enzymes help digestion. New medicine in the last fifteen years has proven in clinical studies that enzymes taken by mouth (oral enzymes) can make it past your stomach to treat and help prevent cancer. In the lab and in clinical studies papain has proven to be a cancer fighting enzyme. Papain is found in the papaya leaf and in many cultures is brewed in a tea to fight and prevent cancer. Papain has been proven in labs and in clinical studies to eat away the protein fibrous coating on cancer cells so that your body can kill the cancer. Papain enzyme is most active at about 150 degrees F, a perfect tea. Traditionally, the dried leaves of the papaya have been boiled for a tea for cancer and other treatments. The tea tastes very much like green tea.

Enzymes have very few side-effects and still are as natural as orange juice. Most people feel more mentally alert, and when taken on an empty stomach, often euphoric. Papaya leaves are natural so the FDA does not get involved in approving them. Many studies have been done proving the positive effects of enzyme therapy during cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Enzymes help your body digest "dead" foods that we eat which often become toxic to our bodies later in life. Our bodies make enzymes from our pancreas, but our American diet overworks our pancreas by the time most of us reach age 25. Drink papaya tea for life! Papaya leaf can help reduce acid secretions, relieve gas and sour stomach, and alleviate chronic diarrhea for most people. Some people have an allergic reaction that actually provokes those symptoms. Papaya leaf tea or decoction can be profoundly helpful with heartburn, but it can also act as a purgative, and too much can upset the stomach. An infusion of the leaves makes the toughest meat tender when rubbed with it or cooked in it.
