Papaya Sweet Answer to our Well Being and Health

Papaya fruits, pawpaw fruits. Just recently I came across an eye opening book by Barry Thomson “Join Our Escape From Death Row-Cancer Jail”, where he in a most genuine and generous ways shares valuable information and his knowledge in effective fight against cancer and ill health. Among other very interesting information I red about simple but wonderful papaya and its healing properties. One chapter in this book awoke in me more desire to learn and research as much as I possibly could because on a professional level I deal with people suffering many different health issues and aliments who look for alternative ways to help them. I would love to share what I know as I believe it can make difference in everyday life of many others. I am also hoping that this will prompt other people to share their knowledge about improving our general well being and health. (this book is further described in comment #100 below)

Papaya, Paw Paw, Papaw, Tree Melon (botanical name Carica papaya), it has oblong shape, normally greenish yellow, yellow or orange color. It is a large tree plant fruit usually reaching 2.5 kg or 5.5 lb. It has bitter sweet taste and comes from tropical places with higher humidity, native to Mexico, countries of Central America, Thailand, Africa and Asia and growing well in Australia.

Papaya Health Benefits

Paw Paw how we call it here in Australia is these days plentiful all year round in most of the countries. The parts that are used medicinally are fruit, seeds, stems and leaves. I did look around and found out you can buy paw paw in all forms, in a form of fermented papaya, herbal teas even tablets and of course plenty of the fresh fruit, which can be eaten as it is or in a form of juice. So you ask what are these awesome healing properties of paw paw? Well where do I start? Papaya fruit is and excellent source of dietary fiber, folate, vitamin A, C and E. It also contains small amount of calcium, iron, riboflavin, thiamine and niacine. It is also very rich in antioxidant nutrients flavonoids and carotenes, very high in vitamin C plus A, and low in calories and sodium.

Pawpaw - papaya for health - papaya tree leaves and green pawpaws. PawPaw tree. Paw paw is rich in enzymes called papain and chymopapain which helps with the digestion, particularly it breaks down the proteins from the food we eat into amino acids. The latest research shows that amino acids are responsible for all what is happening in our organism, basically for what is happening in every chemical reaction as well as our mental and physical health. As we age we produce less of the digestive enzymes in our stomach and pancreas, which leads to ineffective digestion of proteins. Due to this we end up with excess amount of undigested protein, which leads to overgrowth of the bad bacteria in our gastrointestinal system and not enough of amino acids to perform all important chemical reactions. We can say that good quality protein is absolutely essential for our healthy being. This is where the papaya enzymes can be very beneficial.

Photo of papaya leaf having 1 foot or 30 cm across in diameter. The papain enzymes are produced in the skinny peel of paw paw. The combination of these enzymes repels insect during the ripening, without this protection paw paw fruit would not survive. Eating paw paw after a meal makes for better digestion, prevents bloating and chronic indigestion. It can also lower the inflammation in the body, alleviates the pain and edema caused by sport injuries. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties papaya can relieve the severity of Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Because of its high antioxidant content, papaya can prevent cholesterol oxidation and can be use in a preventative treatments against atherosclerosis, strokes, heart attacks and diabetic heart disease.

In a everyday health papaya works magic on strengthening the immune system preventing the recurrent colds and flu. After treatment with antibiotics eating paw paw or drinking its juice replenishes the good intestinal bacteria, which was destroyed by the antibiotic treatment. The latest good news from eating paw paw comes down once again to papain the enzyme which I talked about, it was found to destroy intestinal parasites. Papain is proteolitic enzyme, which means that it digests inert (non-living) proteins. Intestinal parasites are largely protein, the papain attacks it and causes parasite to die. Also, home applications of leaf and bark papaya extract is used to deal with mouth gums and toothaches which is being effectively practised in many cultures around the world.

Papaya Research and Products

Papain is also being studied for relief of cancer therapy side effects, especially relieving side effects such as difficulty swallowing and mouth sores after radiation and chemotherapy as well as boosting up the immune system and helping body to fight the cancer. I am big fan of the products made by Rochway, Australian company, as they use organically grown papaya, producing among other products, product called Papaya35, fermented papaya enzymes. They also produce Blueberry and PawPaw probiotic Punch, which has very strong antioxidant properties that protects against free radicals. Free radicals contribute largely in many diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cancer. Rochway products are 99% sugar free which makes them suitable for people suffering diabetes as well. As you can see there is plenty we can benefit from this simple fruit, more and more research is being done and I can’t wait to hear more about it.

For references and more on the current studies you can look up PubMed Gov. ( search ) As for the products there are few available on the market. I am sure if you look around you will be able to find many available or simply stick with the fresh fruit. However if you are looking or hoping for more therapeutic effect of eating papaya, you need to be aware the unripened papaya (still green papaya) contains far more of the proteolytic enzymes papain and chymopapain than ripened papaya which we commonly eat. You can also juice the leaves and stems but be prepared for the vile taste of it …. you can’t naturally like its taste nor does the cancer cells.

Summary of Healing Properties of Papaya

  3. I do agree with you that papaya is a great fruit for your health. For healing sicknesses and for prevention for good healthy life.
    I myself used it after recovering from Jaundice.

    By himanshu

  4. Thanks for that Himanshu, I didn’t know that papaya is used in the diet and recovery diet from jaundice, I am going to find out more about it. I like your blog.

    * People asked me how to make papaya tea. (Papaya equals pawpaw, it’s the same thing.) Basically, when you make a quick herbal teas, pour boiling water on your herbs and close the pot. Leave it closed till the temperature drops downwards to a drinkable state that best suits to an individual’s preference. At home we pre-warm our tea pots, by simply leaving them sit on top of our hot-water system, which is inside of a closed cupboard and it’s warm in there.

  8. I love papayas, but I never knew that they are so beneficial. Who would have thought that it can prevent some types of cancer? Even more, I had no idea that people have started using papaya for medicine, I am glad I consume it often. Thanks for the information; I will now pass it on to my friends and family.

  9. papaya and health being

    When I was a student I had a lot of gastro-type problems e.g. too much acid – I would never leave home without gaviscon! I’d feel nauseous and retch but wouldn’t actually throw up. I was treated with various ulcer-type medicines and eventually had an endoscopy which found nothing. After that I started seeing a naturopath who got me to eat nothing but pawpaw. She never actually told me what had been wrong – but the pawpaw fixed me up within about a month!

  10. For last two years I have made in my kitchen, just for my family, some of fermentated beverages: ‘Kombucha Tea,’ from the living medusin-is ready in 8-10 days; ‘Tibetian kefir’, made with the living dairy bacteria-is ready in 24 hours. I made fermentated different veges (f.e., soy beans) and fruits (f.e., unpeeled bananas). Tomorow I will fermentate blended whole papaya with peel, seeds and fruit itself, using very strong dairy bacterias.

  11. i like to eat paw paw. it gives me more vitamins and helps me to be more powerful. hope that this little words of mine could inspire more people to eat papaya.


  12. When anyone in my family has a toothache due to a hole in any of the tooth, my mother would get a papaya leaf and scrape the bark off the stick then sqeeze the juice out into the tooth that troubles you. You repeated that twice or three times. After a short while, you do not feel the pain anymore. It has been used for many generations in the past.

  13. I have a receipe for paw paw tea that my great grandfather used to cure his stomach cancer I think in the 1930’s. My mother told me that he was taken to Sydney Australia from his country home to be operated on they found when opened up that he had stomach cancer and nothing could be done. So he returned home and set about finding a cure, he believed you had to find something bitter(that’s where the paw paw tea came into the equation) that the cancer didn’t like and every other food to be red or orange. He cured himself and he lived another 7 years and died of a heart attack and no signs of cancer.

  14. After prolong standing on my feet my feet and ankles would swell to more than double the normal size. A gentlemen from Mexico told me to eat papaya and the swelling would disappear. Sure enough – I ate it and the swelling was gone within 48 hours. It does work and I will continue eat papaya after each meal.

  16. My grandmother was cured of stomach cancer in the early 1960’s with consuming the whole papaya. She was told by her physician that she had stomach cancer which was inoperable and to go home and put her affairs in order. Instead, she took off for Mexico to a health resort, and there she was instructed on how to go about juicing the whole papaya, seeds and all! Papaya was readily available to her upon her arrival home to So. Florida. Eight months later, she was declared, by her doctor, as totally cured–no sign of cancer!! She lived for another 14 years with no sign of cancer; ended up dying of heart complications, which she had prior to her cancer diagnosis.

    We give God all the glory and praise for healing her and for using this fruit in the healing process!

    My sibling has recently been diagnosed with a rare squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach and he is currently using papaya as a managing tool for comfort, nausea, and reducing of inflammation while more medical tests are being done on him to see what the doctors are gathering for the best treatment for him. Meanwhile, we trust the Lord for healing once again. Our God is an awesome God!

  17. Thank you for your great article on Paw Paw.

    As I grow my own Paw Paw I found your article very interesting
    and also have found that my digestive system feels great after eating
    paw paw after a meal. So I googled ” the health benefits of paw paw”
    an your page popped up.

    I just thought you might like to know about two typos I found
    on your page. This is not a complaint. I know webmasters are always
    asking for submissions on errors on their sites.

    • Encourages the renewal of musle {Muscle} tissue.
    • Helps with the digestive system, by braking {Breaking} down the proteins and supporting production of digestive enzymes.

    Thanks again.

  20. also, it had been impressed on my heart that paw-paw might be able to control cancer which was what prompted this search, and i am delighted that my feeling has been confirmed. this is so important to me because i have been researching on the treatment of cancers naturally, as i am a health consultant. in addition to this, paw-paw also have skin conditioning properties!

  22. I understand too that Paw Paw contains magnesium. They used to make a stomach powder in South Africa called Pawmag which was an ant-acid for stomach upsets, made from Paw Paw.

  23. I was diagnosed with bladder cancer about two and a half years ago, after surgery the doctor insisted on BCG treatment (a form of tuberculosis) which flushed into my bladder weekly for 6 weeks, after 3 months and an inspection the cancer had subsided a bit but was still active. A local farmer told me about pawpaw leaf tea, so I drank it thrice daily following each dose with a teaspoon of organic molassis for 3 months *. After which another check revealed no trace of any tumor another checkup is due in mid 2010. You can draw your own conclusion.

    * Blackstrap molasses is a popular healing remedy and health food ingredient. Molasses is a viscous byproduct from processing sugar beets and sugar cane into sugar.

  24. About twenty or so years ago my mother ate or drank of papaya (Paw Paw) daily. She had many conditions, so I forget what she was taking it for … but it worked! She died about fifteen years later of an unrelated disorder aged about eighty.

    My wife was quadraplegic and had sinus ulcers from respite-care mis-handling. I used Dr Lucas Paw Paw ointment as a skin-healing growth-accellerant (in conjunction with other medications to kill off golden staff and sudamonis colonisations) and when she died many years later, the doctors and nurses were dumbfounded that she had no skin lesions.

    I found that paw paw ointment could be used where manuka honey couldn’t because the honey blocked my wife’s exudate from escaping her wounds. Also she needed her skin to heal quickly or else bed-sores etcetera would develop.

    We’ve used paw paw products in our family for at least twenty years and our friends are eternally grateful for our telling them about it.

  29. The health benefits of papaya, or paw-paw as we call it in South Africa, are truly phenomenal. I have a condition called duodenitis and I find that when I have discomfort a few teaspoons for paw-mag in a half glass of water really helps. Fresh paw-paw works even better!

    The duodenum is the initial part of the small intestine, in humans about 25cm to 30 cm or 10″ to 12 inches in length of the gut part, bending tube up to 3 times, and so duodenitis condition is acute or chronic inflammation of this duodenum section.

  30. Please as an advice do not take dried papaya leaf with Malaysian Tongkat Ali, can get hospitalised for that. Can be very bad for a human heart. Benefits are that this shrub by strengthening the immunity system helps with fighting against mental fatigue and also physical exhaustion, but on the other hand at the same time this can also create side effects.

    Is there any market for bartering dried papaya leafs with olives packed in saltwater?

  32. I took 1.5 to 2 cups cold papa in a blender with 1/2 cup plain, sugar-free yogurt or home made yogurt, along with some molasses, ice, and some water…makes a great papa flavored shake. Add a banana, too. It’s very subtle, but you might like the flavor.
    Chewing any food is of much more value than drinking anything, as any time you have pressure on the teeth and gums, you activate enzymes all through the GI track, which is needed to properly digest. Actually, the stomach has some enzymes, when it is depleted, the pancreas is the back up. When the pancreas is depleted of all enzymes, you are diabetic!!! So, chew and eat raw fruits and vegetables, so that you are replenishing the enzymes you so much need. Any questions? Have a great day. Thanks for all of you contributions.

    Hi Steve,
    wonderful papaya shake recipe, thank you very munch for sharing. We’ll make it at home this weekend. For sure people need to watch their pancreas and its insulin production. It’s very important, also how much weight we put on mainly in the area around our waist which puts an extra pressure on pancreas, consequences would be that one can become a diabetic (am I right?)
    You’ve mentioned also: “Any questions?” – of course YES we do have – rising awareness on health issues and learning about is/should be important for everybody; Could you create an article on this subject Mate?, we could post it as an individual page on the site for public to go through, many people will visit and read it and, be informed. Thank you ahead, Rado.

  33. As for AARahim’s quip, “Is there a market for papaya leaves packed in salt water,” let that person ask himself, if they have ever exerted their mind to do anything they weren’t told to? You may answer for yourselves. I personally have met people who “had” MS. I saw an autistic boy, who spoke not a word ’til he was 4, but now is as normal as you and I. I know a woman born deaf & remained so until 78 years, where she had to progressively turn down her digital telephone–from 10 to 9,8,7, etc-it was becoming too loud for her. I know people whose eyesight has improved 2 prescriptions & still improving. Shall I go on to tell you of the childless now pregnant, the blind who see, the arthritic who are creak-free, the mentally unstable, who now live in peace & confidence, the cancerous, the heart diseased…it goes on and on…the unhappy couples, now smiling and holding hands? I can see the moon, but just because I haven’t set foot on it, doesn’t mean it isn’t really there. So, I can’t deny that someone else hasn’t. Nonsense, isn’t it?

I am making my own juice extracting from papaya leaves and beetroot plus adding lots and lots of vitamin C appart of the vit C in my organic dietary inputs.

Cancer – make it weakened under the papaya health benefits – are strong. I am searching for an extra information and this page is truly extremely valuable.

    By kehinde Odunaiya

  54. Wonderful Papaya! One of my favorite fruits of all time. It really is important to understand how Whole-Food nutrition and Phytonutrition add immeasurable value to specific nutrients. For example, when you eat an orange, you get vitamin C, AND an entire complement of supportive, naturally associated compounds including in the matrix bioflavonoids which science is still trying to identify 80 years after the discovery of vitamin C! Even though you may be injesting major doses of a variety of vitamins everyday, your body still craves the naturally associated factors more than a high dose of an isolated nutrient!

  55. Interesting stuff – I wasn’t aware of all the health benefits. I was surprised, however, to read about the “unpleasant” taste of green papaya. The Thai have been using green papaya (and mango) in their authentic spicy salads for years. And, it’s gorgeous! The hard green fruit can be bought from Thai or oriental supermarkets (some online) and should first be peeled. It should then be shredded (or grated) and bruised (ideally in a pestle and mortar). The shredded fruit is then mixed with garlic, fresh chilli, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice and finished with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts. It goes beautifully with Thai curry, soup etc. There are plenty of recipes on the net but my fave is a Ken Hom recipe, as described above. Bon appetite!!!!

  56. Hi there, I am interested in knowing about paw paws, but initially I would like to juice paw paws and wondered if the skin and seeds can be used without the taste becoming yuckky. And what fruit can it be mixedd or be beneficial with.

    Many thanks; and have a juicy day!

    New Zealand

    I have already had my first’adventure’ with the paw paws .. very good! I didn’t utilise that skin for the first time. I peeled it andjuiced alternatively with a big bunch of grapes .. very good! I thought that tomorrow I might repeat but add the juice of a nice sweet and juicy Gisborne orange. Pineapple could be used too. though I think that both paw paws and pineapple might be more easily blended rather than juiced.
    Many thanks for your suggestions.

    Added by Rado: Hi Jackie,
    Thanks for the note. Yes of course, wash them on the outside and juice also the skin all together. Seeds are bitter however personally I like the taste when seed are in it juiced as well. Also papaya leaves actually, no joking, have most enzymes for benefiting in the health sense but as I mentioned I like the taste too, same for ginger. I haven’t mixed it with anything else as yet usually only adding beetroot and carrot sometimes.

    Warm regards,

  60. Does the fermented paw_paw – papaya results in the same health benefits and healthy enzymes extract in the fermenting process of that the fermented kombucha tea has? To my knowledge, excluding apart what material is being processed in the manufacturing 10 days fermentation cycle, the outcome really seems the same. If that was the case then the juice could be prepared also at home simply like the Kombucha mushroom tea elixir for similar health benefits (just watch for not growing in any mold on top by keeping the top moist, keeping all brewing equipment sterilized plus dry and follow preparation directions exactly with attention to temperature levels allowed between 80 – 85 F , 26.6 – 29.4 C ).

  62. Thank God for Papaya my dad is now relieved from constipation. Before he is on bed rest, my dad normally defecates daily. For this past 2 months, he has to take medicine to soften his stool and to help him defecate. But since we started giving him Papaya fruit as part of his daily diet, he can defecate now with relaxed ease and it made his health and strength improve too. Hope people will realize how great help this soft, small tree can do to a person’s well being. Have a healthy life with papaya… Eliza on pawpaw health.

  64. Nice to see so much useful information here. I would add 1 more use for papaya extracts. I have used fresh juice of papaya leaves on my father to cure dengue and malaria. The juice increase the platlets and aids in increasing immunity in very short time. Just 1 glass juice of 1 full leaf not much diluted will remove the fever.

  65. Papaya leaves juice can cure dengue fever. Use big papaya leaf and pound it till fine. Squeeze out the juice and drink at least a tablespoon of it at an hourly interval for 2 to 3 times. You may add some honey to it for better taste. You can see instant improvement within hours. If you are a dengue fever victim, please try this recipe without hesitation.

  69. I have familial pseudo gout. Had been on anti-inflammatories from age 28. When I was in early 60’s my stomach went out on me. Could not take cream of wheat, oatmeal, milk toast, and after a week of just goat’s milk, not even goat’s milk.
    MD in Cleveland doing alternative medicine put me on papaya. A few weeks of papaya, avacado, mango…but mostly papaya and I was eating…getting back to pizza.
    Now I eat with papaya daily and feel ahh very good; had to find a gastro doctor who recommends what to eat.

Use 7 medium size papaya leaves, not too old, not too young, wash thoroughly, chop up like cabbage, put in a saucepan with two litres of water,boil until reduced to 1/2 that amount. Strain and bottle in glass bottle. Refridgerate, lasts about 3 days. Take 50ml of the paw paw herbal tea 3 times per day.

    thank you for your quick reply, i said earlier my dad is diagnosed with bladder cancer, he has his TURBT done, and 6 doses of BCG instillation ( injection of tb virus directly in to the bladder and then taken out by urination). Now since i have done every thing that the doctors have told me, i would like to use papaya leaf tea, i have read many articles about it.

    Papaya plant is easily available here in India. And it seems to help without a side affects.

    Could you let us know how many times is one supposed to have this tea in a day and for how long, are there any side affects. I have put my dad on a diet of home cooked food, which is not spicy a bit. (as sipcy food boost cancer cells). Fruits and vegetable that boost his immunity. Broccoli is very good for this kidda cancer. (Rado please take notice of this). All dark coloured fruits and vegetable are benefiting.
    Pear is a very strong cancer fighting agent, i have made a list of food items that benefit. I will put them here if you wish.

    Thank you very much.

  79. Does anyone have a recipe of how to make your own paw paw cream or ointment? I like the Lucas Paw Paw Ointment, but I don’t like that it has Petroleum Jelly in it.

    added by admin: Hi Diana, thanks for the note. I know you want to produce your own papaw ointment as you say. But just in case; there is one pure papaw (paw paw) ointment, plus with Calendula herb in it, that does not have petrochemicals in the cream mix at all – here: the product (Pure Nutraceuticals Paw Paw Papaya Ointment with Calendula) and the products are available in shops as well. Otherwise try to ask in health stores for a cream base product to make your own they will have a couple of different types for DIY for you, they will have a petrochemical-free formula cream base. Extracting the oil from paw paw leaves is something to work out with minimal equipment for pressing and/or slow cooking it (when dry) in the base, and sieved. After, mix it into the cream base or Aqueous cream which is non-greasy light moisturizer that provides a nice layer of oil for an ointment preparation (diy down the bottom of the page). Almond oil is often used. Check for instructions, some types need to be kept in a fridge.

  86. Papaya is really good for the skin since it is rich in vitamin A. As we all know Isotetrinoin is high in Vitamin A.

    Added: The isotretinoin /different spelling/ (or Accutane one of several brands of this medication – probably an old fashion cancer treatment now, before using it definitely educate about possible side effects) is a medication used for treating of a variety of cancers an also for a few severe skin conditions but I don’t know much about it. It will be very different to papaya. A quick simple made at home papaya compress, as a DIY, if you mean an extract from papaya in its simplest form, peel can work on the skin for example for fighting acne breakouts and other skin issues.

    You could use “Black Salve” treatment, many people use it to cure truly bad cancers including Melanoma and some other cancers. You can order movie on DVD first with all the info in if you would like to learn about this treatment first, or, some Naturopaths also sell this same DVD in their practice among products like books – movies. I have this disk for a while; if you cannot find it or if you want it ASAP or even now, you are welcome to come up to pick it up. But I am in Qld., if you had someone reliable in Brisbane who would collect it for you just let me know and we can organize the time to meet. And the actual “Black salve” in jar you can order, for a time being there is a unique way for ordering it. Then store the rest in refrigerator for months. The DVD also described how to make this black salve treatment at home, although you would still need to look for needed ingredients. About black salve application – it’s what you need to pull the cell carcinomas out from the body. And also extra info about skin cancer salve that is safe and effective. And, if you learn about it more, there aren’t side-effects from using this cancer treatment.

    COVER OF: Join Our Escape From Death Row – Cancer Jail. book by Barry Thomson

    Join Our Escape From Death Row - Cancer Jail. book by Barry Thomson

    The Join Our Escape From Death Row – Cancer Jail book has 174 pages, it is roughly in A4 format size. I believe you would be able to read and absorb all information contained in it in 2-3 days. The author researched everything in an extreme detail, it is an extremely valuable help. Proper kind of juicer is described also. Not every juicer is appropriate, it is a specific type! I’ve seen them in shops.

    In this book you will find all different approaches, which can help to improve your dad’s condition. For example a doctor’s assistance with injecting high amounts of vitamin C, Gerson’s therapy, there are also different supplements recommended to accompany the whole process. Among others bovine cartilage etc., I’d like to repeat that you will find all the research in the book. I must not forget the author also explains in detail how the daily juices are mixed, prepared, from which plants (e.g. papaya, beetroot) and how they are consumed daily. The treatment also includes getting rid of intestinal parasites. Parasites are found in 90% of all cancer sufferers.

    I truly hope that you will find the information from this book useful.

You have to advice that only pharmaceutical chemo and medications prescribed by trained doctors is the only way how to help patients! Yes I think Iv seen EVER buzz word for cures of papaya, I see why your so high in google rankings. Curing cancer with papaya is a dangerous assumption, cancers are mutant cells that have there own way of growing, as they live outside the cell “tumors”, these multiply travel and block your internal functions.

If you dont understand ridged finger nails its basically your body is robbing itself of nutrients. I tried all kinds of products but really didnt help. I tried reliv, and all kinds of multi vitamins from gnc to the expensive stuff at the local health food store. I was taking lots and lots of things. Nothing really made a difference until one day about 3 months ago the lady at the health food store asked me if I was taking enzymes. I bought the enzymes and brought them home. I was amazed the next day when I woke up to no itching. My legs within a 2 week period healed about 80% better. I was shocked, I started having more energy, my eyes didn’t feel tight and tired and I am starting to smell things again. I have more energy and I’m not in a mental fog anymore. I cut out the other vitamins and I only take the Papaya enzymes and cod liver oil tablets. I am amazed and if you are looking for a product that does work try papya enzymes.

  119. Pawpaw or papaw and papaya are the same. In other words paw paw fruit, pawpaw fruit, papaw fruit and papaya fruit are the same fruit! One thing with different names for it, it has the same medicinal or therapeutic healing properties. It is about Carica Papaya scientific – botanical name.

    (For skeptics or those not knowing, if there were some out there, please do not confuse “Carica papaya”, the healing one, with the Eastern North American fruit tree “Asimina triloba” which is just a nice large edible fruit food to eat.)

    In traditional Chinese medicine Carica papaya has name Mugua and it is very much valued medicinal plant for its high quality medicinal healing properties in this fruit either ready to eat or still in a green state and also in leaves of the plant.

    Carica papaya = papaya = papaw = pawpaw = paw paw -> they all are equally the same plant having only different names used around the cultures on the planet for the same thing. What’s the difference between papaya fruit and pawpaw?‎ Answer is; none. What is the difference with papaya and paw paw? Do these two differ? Again; No Difference.

  120. An important part of the male reproductive system is prostate gland that is producing and storing the fluid. It is marginally influenced by the male hormones, especially testosterone hormone, which are released in men. The testosterone hormone is released via stimulation of adrenal glands. If you are a 50 years old male, you have a 25% chance of having at least some cancerous cells in your prostate gland and that risk grows as your age grows. That is why every male should go for a doctor’s visit for a regular prostate exams or blood check for prostate which is a wise choice for them for their health maintenance.

Was pleased to find a great thai salad recipe another poster mentioned above. So glad to know the unripe papaya has so many more health benefits, especially as I suffer from digestive problems! The great part of the salad is you pound the flesh to get the juice out, which activates the enzymes and makes it even more beneficial. I just used a vegetable peeler to shred the flesh into a bowl and used the bottom of a ceramic mug to pound the flesh in the bowl (instead of a mortar and pestle). Here is a great green papaya fruits cooking recipe, which can be substituted with other ingredients to be vegan / vegetarian. It even contains lime juice which helps absorption of the beneficial vitamins from green papaya flesh.

    Good health to you all and good luck in your search for natural health solutions!!

  133. This is one page packed with information for this wonderful fruit, thank you. A few years ago I received information about the wonderful benefits of papaya leaf tea for dengue fever (for which otherwise there is no known cure). I pooh-poohed the idea but some people have testified to its benefits so I looked at it again seriously. I am amused AARahim’s remark (comment 29) about papaya leaf tea and Tongkat Ali, a plant that Malaysia is famous for. The latter, a man’s remedy (you know what I mean), is very popular in Malaysia where it is now a popular addition to coffee. I suppose there’s sound reason for AARahim’s words of caution as the practise for folk remedies in Malaysia is never to mix your medicines. In the West it is now well known that grape fruit juice should not be taken with your medication for its adverse effects. As for durian, Malaysia’s dream fruit with its nightmarish odour, it is not widely known as a remedy for anything. It is a fruit that once grew wild on tall trees in the tropical jungles and is much prized for its rich, creamy, custardy flavor. Many caution against over-indulging in the fruit as it causes wind, has ‘heaty’ qualities, and it should never be taken with alcohol. And ah, there’s a saying in Malaysia, “When durians fall, sarongs rise”! I am much amused too by Jameson’s comments (No.32) on AARahim’s fishing remark about ‘bartering’ dried papaya leaves for ‘olives in salt water’. I think Mr Jameson got absolutely the wrong end of the stick and, by the way, can anyone explain to me the meaning of his cryptic remarks? Thank you for this page on papaya – which in Malaysia is also known as ‘betek’. It is the same fruit as the pawpaw.

  135. I am undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer. I have been applying pawpaw cream to relieve the redness and itching. My skin is VERY red, but because of the cream it is doing very well with no blisters or breaks. Pawpaw is the standard treatment at Sydney’s Westmead Hospital for breast cancer radiation patients whose skin has broken down.

    Also the ‘Tom’ mentioned above is Tom McArthur who has started a company whose product is the subject of a clinical trial for treatment of hard-to-heal wounds at a Melbourne hospital. You can read about it here at this link [ling outdated]

  143. I’ve found papaya seeds very beneficial for helping with protein digestion. The seeds are a good source of papain and other proteolytic enzymes, even when the fruit has ripened and no longer contains that much of proteinase from green papaya and papaya leafs, a cysteine protease EC enzyme present in papaya (Carica papaya), or none of it at all. They are a little spicy and bitter almost burning on taste budsaste buds receptors but you can just chew them up quickly and swallow them down. I usually only take around a teaspoon though as they feel quite powerful. I’d be interested to hear from anyone who has taken significantly more, perhaps as a parasite treatment, and whether you had any negative effects from such a large dose. Thanks.

  147. I got scared reading your webpage. You are accidentally misleading people. Papaya and paw paw are two different fruits. I read one person asking about the seeds of paw paw are POISONOUS, as well as the leaves. Not so those of the papaya. The seeds I used to own a fruit and vegetables business since I was 14 years old and planted some trees too. The picture that you showed here for paw paw is that of a papaya. The two fruits are not even related and when you cut both in half, the papaya flesh is orange with around and small seeds (like 3/16″), while the paw paw has white flesh with big, black seeds. The papaya fruit grows only from the trunk from female seeds extracted from the middle of the fruit, while the paw paw grows from the branches. Could you please make the correction so school children doing research do no get the wrong information and adults do not poison their children?

    added by admin: Please note below; about the paw paw / papaya plant which this entire page is about. It is the widely cultivated papaya (or paw paw or papaw or pawpaw), a tropical fruit plant, can grow also tall like a tree. In other words; in many cultures papaya is also called and regarded to as papaw, or paw paw, or pawpaw (different names for the same Carica papaya version). It produces these fruits that have reddish (the red is more aromatic and a bit more sweeter) or yellowish flesh varieties, its botanical name is Carica papaya – of the plants’ family Caricaceae to be precise. There are female and male plants where only the female plants produce this delicious fruit.

    On the other hand, the pawpaw type you’ve mentioned (not “paw paw”), that is completely different sort and of course has no place here regarding medical or remedial aspects. The pawpaw that you wrote about is North American plant genus Asimina, Asimina triloba, which is completely unrelated to the widely used ‘tropical pawpaw/papaya’, this one you can eat without any problems plus its seeds are edible as well. If the seeds were not so very bitter in taste, I guess, also kids could happily eat them, otherwise why not?

    Please let us know whether you need more information on these two different pawpaw plants. Thank you.

Tastes quite nice to. I have so much going on in my body and have been feeling so unwell and doctors not sure whats causing the pain. Since I started this tea, I am feeling heaps better. I wanted to buy some paw paws but have not been able to find any, so decided to get the dried herbs. Is it not the time of year to have them in the shops? The green papaya powder which is really high in papain enzyme has great healing properties, more so than the orange ones, so I hear, it is pretty hard to get but managed to find both from a supplier in Melbourne. With what I have read from all your posts, I look forward to feeling all better!

  153. Hi friends,

    Great to hear about the benefits of papaya on the aspects of health from all of you. I just want to share some very useful information especially for those who are interesting in producing healthy food. The papaya leaves can also be prepared or used as natural insecticide liquid known as amino acid and on the other hand the prepared liquid can also be used as nutrient for the plant (nitrogen). For further information please do contact with agronomy specialist as I am not. But I am very confident in using the papaya leave liquid for food production as it does not impact both human health and our lovely environment.

    In fact certain cultures can preserve their meats by wrapping it into papaya leaves.

    Best wishes,

  155. I’m from the Philippines. I’m allergic to most medicines so I formulated my own concoction leading me to a homemade papaya leaf-pineapple & ginger extracts powdered drink, which at an early stage appears to work wonders in some ailments such as arthritis, headaches, gastro problems, etc. & result of my recent blood tests show most aspects going down to normal such as my SGPT. Even my TSH level going down. Tests of the product is still underway though & too early to tell the long term effect. Though I was operated from an early stage of uterine cancer, I can’t say at this stage if the drink will have any effect on cancer cells.

  157. I have issues with constipation at times depending on what I consume some products or even stress I find might aggravate it and especially when I am low on my water consumption. I find that Papaya (paw paw) fixes the problem in no time. I’m addicted. I am now pursuing the cancer qualities as my friend is in the hospital as we speak with a tumor in her stomach and many other side effects from chemotherapy and radiation (the doctor told her that he never expected the chemo to have such a bad effect on her and would you believe he asked her if she wanted another round is he smart or what?) I told her to tell him NO! Now that I know it is safe I am going to work with the tea and the fruit, will tell you the result. Have also pushed her to take her B12 for energy and improve her red blood cells when blood count was really low. There was another woman with stomach ulcer screaming in another bed whom I told to eat papaya (even before I read information) and she greeted me in the hospital lobby grinning and said she was feeling better after including the paw paw in her diet. The Lord has been impressing on me to try paw paw with my friend but I hesitated until I researched and found more information, now I’m going gungho with the remedy. Thanks for spending timne to share. God bless!

  173. We just love eating the papaya fruit, if you can find a fruit better eat it than to drink those teas and stuff. One way to eat papaya is to add a pinch of salt and half a teaspoon of squeezed calamansi (Calamansi or Calamondin – scientific named Citrus microcarpa) juice over it, even simple lemon or line fruit juice. Best served when cold. It’s a fresh and yummy dessert which I admit is good for all those who want to lose some pounds of their body weight or just want something refreshing.

  176. Thank you for this website, the information brought back many memories from my childhood eg. when my nana was grating and slicing then cooking or packing this wonderful easy to grow papaya fruit.

    It is I believe our responsability to spread any info we may incur about the wonderful paw paw fruits freely given to us just like a miraculous tool used in healing. To help even more, buy a paw paw tree today for someone!

    Papaya helps a lot in; fab for gout, as a poultice drink tea (heated and medicated to digest or wiped on the skin for treatments of inflamed, aching or painful health issues), daily hair washing. In culinary just grate papaja into curries, is has perfect taste and it is also very easy on digestion. Eat papaya also green! I have used it in my massage bussiness for over 30 years in fact that is applied in so many different ways – and still, after reading in this page, I wasn’t aware of all the health benefits papaya has. I was surprised, however, to read about the “unpleasant” taste of green papaya. The Thai we have been using green papaya (and mango) in our authentic spicy salads for generations and centuries. And the taste to us is simply gorgeous! The hard green fruit can be bought from Thai or oriental stores (some online) and should first be peeled, the specific taste is in the skin, however the main health benefit is absorbed within papaya skin and its leaves. It should then be shredded (or grated) and bruised (ideally with a natural stone pestle and mortar). The shredded fruit is then mixed with garlic, fresh chilli, sugar, fish sauce and lime juice and finished with a sprinkle of chopped peanuts. It goes beautifully with Thai curries, soup etc. There are plenty of recipes on the net but my fave is a Ken Hom recipe, as described above. Bon appetite!

    Starting my web page soon, keep in contact, and pray for us please! Thank you GOD. Please send any ideas, or would like any, write to me Lindy, at, any hints ect. so we can send your story to others. Bless you all of you who read this.

Papaya fruit helps me as my medication and it is very accessible to us especially if you own a tree or two because it always bears a fruit unlike other plants that still need to be fertilized in order to make a better harvest.

    Why does Papain from the Papaya Heal almost all disease because it is an Atom Splitting Enzyme and Loves to devour Proteins almost all disease is Protein based or protein related. I discovered what the Papain Enzyme could do in 1983 when I had Ross River Fever and Glandular Fever at the same time.

    I believe the Papaya is a Tree of life, or maybe it is the Tree of Life, I shall explain. In Revelation it says that the Tree of Life will fruit every month the same as the Papaya, then it says that the leaves of this Tree of Life are going to heal the Nations. The Papaya leaf is the best healing agent known to man. We have been proving this since 1983.I have many stories about Healing with the Papaya Tree, The Tree of Life. Thank you.

    A New Era is here True Perfect Health and regeneration of the Body with the Papain Enzyme from the Carica Papaya the Tree of life. The two main remedies We use is the Leaf tea and the seed drink.

    Take some young leaf the size of your two hands, chop it up into small pieces place in half a litre of hot water and boil for ten minutes then strain leaf from tea let it cool then drink.

    Eat an 1/8 of a fruit take the seed from the fruit at least a desert spoon or more. Place seed in beaker with a small cup of water and use a barmix and break up the seed into pulp for about a minute, then strain seed husk from drink with a finr siv then drink slowly at first. Use both tea and seed drink fresh as it does not keep its strength.

    These two remedies are a natural way of taking in the Enzyme papain, eat the fruit daily, Papaya is for Health Benefits.

    More to come thank you.

  194. From before 1900 to around 1918 almost a century ago We had a Doctor here in Brisbane Qld Australia. His name was Thomas Lucas. This Doctor somehow through His research discovered the Power of this Tree of Life the Papaya the Pawpaw. For almost thirty years He used this tree against all disease and ailments with great success. I would now like to tell you about some of his Healing Phenomena. He Healed Hydatids and all Parasites and Tuberculosis some thing they still cant completely Heal today. He Healed many cases of cancer during his time as a Doctor. In His books that He wrote about His work there are pages of stories about Him Healing Breast Cancer, all with the Papaya. If He could do it then We can do it again today, We only have to try.
    He Healed Bowel problems, cases of chronic Piles, blood poisoning and swollen body parts. He Healed server burns and ulcers and veracious veins. He used this Plant against tonsillitis and diphtheria. In His books He talks about cureing Cancer of the stomach, ulcers of the stomach, peritonitis, gout and rheumatism. All fevers all vomiting and diarrhea within hours. He Healed tumors of the scalp and tumors of the neck. All spinal paralysis that entered his care were Healed and in a short time. During the Spanish Flu epidemic that flooded the Earth including Australia almost a century ago the Doctor had in His care two hundred people with this Virus.He lost two out of those two hundred a loss of one percent. The other Doctors and Hospitals lost ninety percent of their Patients, not so with Doctor Lucas all Healed with the Papaya the Pawpaw truly amazing. We can do it again if ever there is a viral epidemic that hits us.

  195. I am planning to eat papaya for breakfast as a prelude to becoming a raw fooder. I will like to know whether i must take papaya along with skin or should i remove the skin.

    By Amudhan

  196. When the papaya skin looks clean, healthy and undamaged, I don’t eat it as such, but often so I send it through our juicer and drink the liquid from the skin. Our juicer preserves the valuable enzymes in the final juice. I still properly wash the outside of papayas of course before cutting them plus we buy only organic papayas etc. with no pesticide on fruits nor in them. Cannot hurt, skins on most fruits contains lots of good health-beneficent nutrients.

  197. Knowledge is wealth. In my village, paw paw trees are everywhere. They belong to nobody. Only an extreme poverty makes one eat pawpaw. We often make a joke with it saying, “pawpaw is sweet only if one has no other choice (no other food to eat) but to eat it”. But now, after reading through all the information about pawpaw, I will visit my village as pawpaw messenger to give them the good news about pawpaw. Of course some of them will say I’m insane.

    I left home a long time ago. I hope the pawpaw trees are still there. I prefer to avoid a wasted journey. My email addresse:

  205. Information about growing papaya, production and papaya usage in a kitchen.

    By a professional adviser…

    Plant papaya seeds – Keep only the female plants – they have fruit coming out of the trunk in bundles. Male plants have long stems with flowers & elongated fruits. When male plants are removed the female fruits are very mild flavored & sweeter with fewer seeds. Also, cut the tips of each tree at a reachable height to encourage growth of branches along the trunk which are so much easier to harvest than climbing a ladder to the top of a long barren trunk. Also, when frost threatens it is easier to cover a low bushy tree than a tall one. I’ve made papaya pickles & other desserts like papaya bread with nuts & jams & chopped them up in pancakes. You can use it in stuffing & gravy & fruit salad. For gravy & sauces you can blend in the skin & all – but eating it fresh is always most delectable. Only frost will stop this tree from constant production of fruit month after month.

    I have problems with my stomach. I started eating papaya after I eat a heavy meal. The digestive enzymes helps me digest food. Now when I go to bathroom, it just feels good. I think papaya is a very good healthy fruit it fixes all things health-wise.

  214. Papaya vs. Paw Paw
    I am not sure how many people from the USA read this post, but you might want to change the notion that Paw Paw and Papaya are the same. There is a native tree (and not a tropical herb, as papaya is) that grows in the USA and it has nothing to do with Carica Papaya. Although, also in the USA sometimes use these two words interchangeably.
    Another point: majority of our papaya in the USA is imported from Hawaii – and, unfortunately, a lot of that fruit, I understand is GMO (and UNFORTUNATELY, USA does not require labeling!).

It helped many cancer patients as well as others who are suffering from kidney problems, high blood pressure, lupus, intestinal disorders, infertility, liver problems, dengue and many more, the advantage of this orally taken liquid product compared to tablet form is that, it enters directly into your circulatory system plus it is easily transported through the blood.

  223. Papaya is a very nutritious and delicious food item, and it provides ample benefits to the one who eat the same — but as it is — one must not eat too much of it in a meal but eat only just enough to have the ideal effect — too much of it may not be very beneficial — what is viewed to be an anti-cancer property of papaya may turn instead into a precursor of another health problem — eat only an amount according to your daily need mix with other food items in your diet — papaya is best eaten when it is ripe — avoid eating raw unripe papaya but you can use unripe papaya in cooking — cooking tones down its potency — or if you want to eat it raw just like in papaya salads, be sure to squeeze some of its juice just enough to lessen its enzyme content — it is also best eaten paired with meat and high protein food items — this way it aids in better digestion and absorption of the nutrients from the food you ate — avoid eating papaya on an empty stomach although you can eat it as an appetizer or dessert or eat just a small slice as a light snack especially if it is unripe.

    By Vernz

  224. You are right about the wonders of papaya. After experienceing firsthand the healing benefits of fermented papaya, or paw paw, a friend and I have begun importing this powder from Italy. It is made from the ripe fruit and tastes good as well as improving energy and wellbeing. See our website for reports and references of scientific studies.

Hope this will help. regards Robert.

  230. This is a wonderful article on the benefits of paw paw (as we call it).
    For people claiming that the terms paw paw and papaya are not the same, I really do not know too much about from botanical perspective, but the pictures posted above on the fruit, tree and leaves are exactly so to the point. Papaya and Paw Paw, these are just two names for naming the same fruit plant, around different locations on this planet – such cases are very common for various other objects.
    I’ve been suffering from duodenal ulcer for years and one day my father discovered a fermented paw paw drink. He would thoroughly wash then chop about 2-3 unripe pawpaws (without peeling off the skin) and cover it up with water in a glass jar (including the seeds) then let it ferment for 3-5 days after which it is ready to sieve to remove any of the solid matter for consuming. I took a 1 or 2 cups of the drink 3 times a day when later all the ulcer symptoms disappeared. It helped not only with the ulcer, but also helps reduce my sometimes serious or unpleasant menstrual cramps.
    My dad is over 90 years old and yet he looks 20 years younger. Skin on is face is very smooth, I always wonder with respect. He eats a lot of this papaya, he also finely shreds the fresh leaves and adds them like that to most of his meals.
    I’m really glad to have come across all the other amazing benefits of the papaya fruit plus its leaves and the helping comments and ideas from others have been rather enlightening. Cannot wait to tell about them to my dad and hear him say “didn’t I tell you so?!”

    Please does anyone know if eating paw paw can cure pimples in the body from the inside. I begun having pimple/acne breakouts some 4 years ago. I am 34 years old who has never had pimples, at least till I was 30, but now these are a constant feature on my face and it really bothers me quite a lot and it makes me rather self conscious.

    By Ronke

  231. Hallo, I know that by partaking the Papaya Remedies the leaf tea and the seed drink and eating at least a 1/4 of a ripe fruit each day. This will give you a healthy balance in your life, this should be all you need. Give it a try for a month and see how you go. Hope this will help. The papaya, the Pawpaw, is a regenerating Herb, plant.

I had Ross River Fever and Glandular Fever at the same time way back in 1983 and I killed the disease with leaf tea. one dose healed me try this it works and it’s easy to make. Just recently we have healed a few cases of Ross River on Russel Island near Brisbane. They used the seed drink and it worked. It is good to use the treatment every day and you will never ever get sick again (so to speak – under normal life circumstances). It’s good to see you are healing.

Paw paw is yummy and like Carica papaya a great medicinal herb and grows throughout the SE US look for latin name of Asimina triloba sp. and is best known for its anti cancer. Papaya (latin name is Carica papaya) and has great digestive plus other medicinal properties and also really yummy. Really important to use latin names when talking about herbs and comparing them.

  237. When rendering plant names scientifically, the species is rendered in lower case.

    It is also worth noting, that the leaves of the plant are a premium source as a tea against that disease that is so fashionable.

    People with ‘that’ disease really need to get on their journey and source the actual root of the malady. See Louise Hay’s, Heal Your Body.

    Cancer: Deep hurt. Long standing resentment. Deep secret or grief eating away at the self. Carrying hatreds. “What’s the use?”.

    Get on the program gang. In the end we are a sum total of our thoughts. Those who pursue light, intelligence and understand, realize this; become aware of, and dissolve, negativity in their lives (and no I don’t mean all the ‘happy, smiling, PMA’ crew).

    It came from your thinking; it can be dissolved with your thinking and change of heart. But regrettably 99.9% of people have so much self-righteous fear and denial in their lives,that they refuse to accept they might be possessed of human foibles.

  238. I am just wondering how much papaya should be consumed to help deal with constipation or prevent constipation. Got constipated a couple weeks ago. I ate a plate of papaya and apples at midnight. Next day, at noon, ate another plate of papaya. Pooped in like 5 hours. Was quite painful, but easy to pass.
    Now I wonder how much papaya should I eat each day to prevent constipation from happening if that works?

    By Consumer of Papaya

  239. Hello Papaya Consumer I have been eating a 1/4 of a Papaya a day for eighteen years and no sickness or constipation. If you use the seed and leaf as well you will live with out sickness or pain for a very long time.

  240. A point about Papaya that is too often ignored and that is the vermifuge properties of the seeds, in other words papaya works like some other medicine for expelling worms out from intestines.

    Understanding parasite infestation is critical to health. If you don’t believe you have any parasites go look at various research. Parasite are extremely common actually.

    Where there is cancer or tumors; there is 90% chance there are parasites present in the body. Google that too. It will be a revelation for the naysayers.

  249. Hi Robert, I think, or it feels like, people should eat papaya also for preventing various diseases so they won’t get sick down the road basically and for its tasty and healthy nutritional values as well. Only since we met you a while back, we also consume the papaya seeds. Further more I also juice the papaya skin (together, among other vegetables and fruits) after washing it, always so when it looks fresh and clean on the outside. The aim is, that the whole precious papaya fruit gets used up without a waste. There is heaps of healthy liquid still remaining in the skin. The healing you have mentioned sounds promising.

  265. I read in pubmed and other serious scientific pages that papaya can help with chronic leg ulcers, and it is better that it should be raw, then you have to make it liquid and put it over the leg ulcer. I am trying this with the leg ulcers of my father and it seems that it works, though it is good to put a vaseline around the leg ulcer to prevent from damaging the (perilesional) skin around it. Besides he walks every day, and now is avoiding eating things with too much sugar as it is bad for this problem. Papaya, when is raw, won’t get damaged, because you know that if you leave papaya after a few days it gets … rotten … but if it is raw then it will make a gel. Yes, a gel.
    I heard that pure honey also cures chronic wounds and to prevent from happening the ulcers you have to walk all the days, at least half an hour (a friend had those spiders but now he doesn’t because he walks one hour and a half each day, natural solution) and you could use some cream over it. I read that olive oil is very good to give more oxygen to the skin so use it and a moisturizer to prevent ulcers to appear.
    Papaya is great, there are many uses of it as it has many fabulous properties. :)
