Greetings to all my readers! In today’s article, I am going to share with you the 11 health benefits of pawpaw (papaya).
The Pawpaw plant was first cultivated in South America during pre-Columbian times. It reached Asia in the eighteenth century, and Europe in the sixteenth century. Today, Carica Papaya is now grown all over the place.
The pawpaw plant is God’s gift to all humankind. Pawpaw Plant is like a clinic on its own. It is a complete department because of the numerous health benefits endowed in this plant.
Some people believe Pawpaw is meant for eating alone. Obviously not, the inquiry is, what number of us know the MEDICAL value of Carica Papaya?
Many years back, I visited a close buddy in his home with his wife and two children. This, my friend, had an old SORE that refused to heal despite all daily medications.
The SORE has gotten into a severe stage that my friend’s leg was getting rotten away. I questioned him, why did he not treat the SORE? He said, “I do treat it with Western medicines, but the leg is so stubborn”.
To be sincere, hearing this sentence (… western medicines, but the leg is so stubborn) from him was a kind statement from him that wasn’t cool to me and I made up my mind to help him out of the situation. Shockingly at the back of his home, are two good-looking Pawpaw plants. Immediately, I
teach him how to treat his SORE with Pawpaw fruit. After one month, his leg was healthy once again, and he was able to trek down to my house without anyone holding him.
Several people are dying daily of common illnesses that can be easily cured with plants growing at the back of their houses. Visit our clinic centers, and you will understand. The pawpaw plant helps and improves the digestion of protein and removes worms. The ripe ones are very rich in vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin C.
