Cure gout with green papaya and green tea leaves

Someone passed to me this interesting natural remedy for curing gout. Gout is caused by the crystallization of uric acid between joints, tendons, and the surrounding tissues. This is usually due to the presence of excessive level of uric acid in the body. Gout is a painful illness around the joints especially areas around the fingers, toes, knees and heels.

I shall not discuss about uric acid and gout here. Instead for this article, let me concentrate on the treatment for gout, by using nature’s gifts. To be specific, two natural ingredients, green papaya and green tea leaves. Green papaya and green tea leaves are natural plant supplies. I am confident that even if they do not cure gout, it will still be harmless drinking tea steeped with papaya. I am sure this is a healthy drink if nothing else. So no harm sharing this piece of information. No guarantee it will work though.

The recipe for curing gout

This recipe is supposed to be from a Professor Lai of the China School of Pharmacy. It is in three simple, easy steps.

1. Cut green papaya into small cubes.

2. Put the cubes in a pot of water, and put to boil.

3. Then add green tea leaves to make tea.

I know I am going to receive comments seeking clarifications on the exact instructions, of which there is none. So I shall try my best to provide reasonable answers, using my common sense and a little practical experience. They may not be the correct answers; bearing in mind the recipe only gives the above three steps. The answers are just my personal preference, which means you are free to decide on your own.

How much water? 4 cups.

How much papaya? 1 cup.

How much tea? 2 tablespoons.

What size for the cubes? About 2cm or ¾ inch.

How green should be the papaya? Dark green and very firm.

Should the skin be peeled? Optional.

Boil for how long? 5 minutes.

Steep tea for how long? 5 to 10 minutes.

Drink before or after food? Frankly I don’t know, but I would avoid drinking with an empty stomach.

How often and how much ? As often as you like, and as much as you want.

Drink hot or cold? Hot, warm, or at room temperature.

No harm trying

There are so many natural remedies for curing gout. My opinion is that not everyone will respond exactly to the same treatment. It depends on the person’s condition and physical constituents. Some treatments will work on certain people, while the others will work for some others. However, there will be those who will not respond positively to any of the treatments. This is the sad fact. From my personal experience, even the same treatment may not work for the second time on the same person. Strange it may seem, but true.

If this doesn't work, you may like to try this remedy as described in my other article "Natural cures for gout".


The information provided in this article is sourced from the internet, from friends and contacts, and from personal experience. As I cautioned in my article, not every remedy will work on everyone. So is conventional medical treatment. It very much depends on the constituents of the person and the conditions peculiar to that person. Whatever the reasons, this article does not claim the information provided is totally accurate and reliable and will cure everyone. The purpose of this article is merely to inform visitors that there are alternative cures for all ailments.

You are therefore advised to consult your registered medical physicians as a matter of due diligence.

      My 37 yr.old son suffers frm. gout wth. attacks that can last weeks.Sometimes when he can barely walk he has to take the day off work.We have tried all the sorts of things to ease the pain as well as ibuprofen wth. no relief.However,what seems to work best is keeping check of his diet and no alcohol.This means steady on the fizzy drinks as well.And no artificial foods wth.a high content of preservatives.Every thing must be fresh and all sources made frm.scratch.The other thing that helps is Voltaren,its an anti inflammatary.They are sold only 25 in strength and must be taken wth food,but my son will take 3x25 dosage at a time and with in half an hour the pain is noticeably starting to ease.These pills can be bought over the counter now without a prescription and taken with care.

      Hi, my husband started its painful symptoms about 8 days ago. Prescription strength ibuprofen does not seem to be helping. The pain has not let up. With the natural remedies you've posted to lower uric acid (this page and the ginger flower/pandam leaves) how will you know if it works? And how long should we stick with a remdy before we decide that its not working? Will the pain recede or do you find out with a blood test? Our main goal first is to kill the pain. Thanks.

      Black tea can be used instead of green tea based on my readings.

      Thanks for sharing this info. I know papaya is good for people suffering liver problems or jaundice . But from your hub I now realise it can also help in joint problems associated with uric acid problem. I'll be trying that one out.

      Hi Nise,

      It says green tea leaves. You can always try other types, but why you want to do that? I would just follow instructions.
