up a popular use of crude leaf preparations from Carica papaya for
the treatment of dengue infections, a suspension of powdered Carica
papaya leaves in palm oil was investigated for its effect on thrombocyte
counts in mice, administering by gavage 15 mg of powdered leaves per
kg body weight to 5 mice.
investigation developed by Kathiresan Sathasivam1, Surash Ramanathan,
Sharif M. Mansor, Mas Rosemal M. H. Haris and Walther and H. Wernsdorfer,
equal numbers of animals received corresponding volumes of either
palm oil alone or physiological saline solution.
counts before and at 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 12, 24, 48 and 72 hours after
dosing revealed significantly higher mean counts at 1, 2, 4, 8, 10
and 12 after dosing with the C. papaya leaf formulation as compared
to the mean count at hour 0.
was only a non-significant rise of thrombocyte counts in the group
having received saline solution, possibly the expression of a normal
circadian rhythm in mice.
having received palm oil only showed a protracted increase of platelet
counts that was significant at hours 8 and 48 and obviously the result
of a hitherto unknown stimulation of thrombocyte release.
call for a dose-response investigation and for extending the studies
to the isolation and identification of the C. papaya substances responsible
for the release and/or production of thrombocytes.
thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is the condition of having a low platelet
count (thrombocytopenia) of no known cause (idiopathic).
of the papaya fruit are high in complex vitamins that may help your
bone marrow to increase blood platelet production rapidly.
there has been a lot written about papaya leaves that seem to prove
itself as a cure to dengue fever.
where dengue fever is very common, many people take papaya leave juice
to increase platelet count when they get dengue fever.
are statements of people regarding papaya leaves and platelet count
of her church members fed her the juice from raw papaya leaves and
her platelet count went up from 8 to 120 (the normal platelet count
is 150) after taking the juice for 2 days.
have given papaya leaf juice to people with low platelets, and amazing
results came out of it, even in cases of thalassemia, dengue, cancer,
after pregnancy and to females who have profuse bleeding at the time
of their periods. It has even worked for fatigue and as a memory booster.
confessed to me that he gave his son raw juice of the papaya leaves.
From a platelet count of 45 after 20 liters of blood transfusion,
and after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice, his platelet count jumps
instantly to 135. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After
the second day he was discharged. So he asked me to pass this good
.............After taking the papaya leaf juice, my friends' blood
platelets count increased rapidly and they were out of the hospital
within days. One of them reported their platelets count at a dangerous
level of only 8 (normal count is 150 and above). One week after she
was discharged, her platelets count shot up to above 300.
