Cure Gout With Green Papaya And Green Tea Leaves
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".
