Papaya leaf

If you don’t know the medicinal capacities of Papaya leaf or popularly known as Pawpaw leaf, beyond being the leaf of a yellow fruit, then you are missing in action.  

It is strange that till today, many people who have papaya tree in their compounds don’t know how powerful the leaf is, as an alternative cure or treatment for many ailments. Save yourself of some hospital bills please and read this.

Here are 5 Great Ailments that Papaya leaf extract can help you fight naturally

CANCER: Yes, Cancer, you heard me right.. If you are scared of cancer and you are looking for a natural shield to insure your health with, in a world full of many carcinogenic substances, then using papaya leaves will work well for you.

While the antioxidants, digestive enzymes and other nutritional factors in papaya can provide protection against developing cancer, recent research studies are showing papaya leaves may have potential as a treatment for those already suffering from the disease.

Research by Doctor Nam Dang at the University of Florida found an extract made from dried papaya leaves killed cancer cells directly and slowed the growth of tumor cells in cultures.

The leaf extract was effective against all ten different types of cancer cells tested, including liver, lung, cervix, pancreas and breast cancer cells. The anti-cancer effects were also measured to be stronger at higher doses.

It was also found that papaya leaf extract boosts the production of Th1-type cytokines that benefit your immune system.

Dr. Dang said, “Based on what I’ve seen and heard in the clinical setting, nobody who takes this extract experiences demonstratable toxicity; it seems you could take it for a long time – as long as it’s effective.” (Aqueous extract of Carica papaya leaves exhibits anti-tumor activity and immunomodulatory effects – Journal of Ethnopharmacology).

There have been reports online and in some publications of people curing themselves from ‘incurable’ cancers with extracts made from papaya leaf.

One well known case, written about in local newspapers, is that of Stan Sheldon from the Gold Coast in Australia who was reported to be dying from lung cancer.

He used the liquid from papaya leaves, boiled and simmered in a pan as a homemade treatment for two months, before being tested again to find both lungs clear of any traces of cancer.

He said the disease had not reappeared several decades later and he had passed his treatment on to others, many of whom were also cured.

DIABETES : Papaya leaf juice can work wonders for diabetics as well..  It regulates the production of insulin, which in turn checks blood sugar levels. Its strong antioxidant nature also helps to bring down the consequent complications of diabetes like kidney damage and fatty liver. There are proven scientific researches on this. So don’t miss this for your diabetic love ones.

HELPS TREAT SKIN PROBLEMS: Papaya leaf juice has a rich content of vitamin C and A, which boost skin health and give you a healthier and radiant skin. Papaya leaf juice suppresses the activity of free radicals. The presence of karpain compounds checks the growth of excess micro-organisms, and cleanses your skin of the toxins, providing protection against skin problems like pimples, freckles and acne.

ULCER: Papaya leaf tea protected against gastric ulcer in a study on laboratory animals published in the September 2008 issue of the “West Indian Medical Journal.” In the study, papaya leaf extract reduced ulcer severity and showed strong antioxidant effects. Papaya leaf extract also decreased oxidized lipids and increased antioxidant activity within red blood cells. Researchers concluded from this preliminary study that papaya leaf tea shows potential for the treatment of gastric ulcer and oxidative stress on the stomach.

■ MALARIA: Sure, you must be familiar with this as proven by several studies, that scientifically validated a combination of Carica papaya (paw-paw), Magnifera indica (mango),Vernonia amygdalina (bitter leaf), Psidum guajava (guava), Ocimum gratissimum (sweet basil), Cymbopogon citratus (lemon grass), Azadirachta indica (neem), seeds of Citrus aurantifolia (lime), Nauclea latifolia and Morinda lucida as potent cure that produce 100 per cent elimination of malaria parasites, even drug-resistant strains, in humans. So you see why drinking crushed pawpaw leaf is cool for your health? Lol.


* Wash 7 medium sized papaya leaves.
* Cut them up roughly and place them in a Saucepan        with 2 liters of water.
* Heat the leaves in the water until it boils and then reduce the heat right down to a mild simmer for 2 hours. By this time the liquid should be reduced by half.
* Allow it to cool, remove the papaya leaves.
* Strain the liquid.
* Drink 50 ml of the resulting concentrated papaya leaf tea three times a Day before Meal.

STORAGE : This homemade papaya leaf tea can be kept in the fridge in a covered glass or ceramic container (not plastic) and should last for several days, though it was recommended to discard it if it became too cloudy.

Total healing.   Remember, health is wealth.
Search Google for more facts, just as I did.

What is a Rod Set

The rod set is a simple yet incredibly versatile protective style for all hair types, including African women transitioning. It's making a resurgence in the natural hair community, with the ability to be worn on any length, from tapered TWAs to bra strap, the natural hair world just can’t get enough of rod sets.

What You’ll Need For A Rod Set

1. Spray bottle with your favorite leave in and water mixed together
2. Oil or butter
3. Gel or setting lotion
4. Rollers (foam, perm, flexi, magnetic, take your pick)
5. Wide tooth comb


● Working in sections and starting on dry hair, spray hair with leave in mix until damp, and then apply oil or butter to hair.

● Detangle hair using a wide tooth comb or your fingers.

● Wrap ends of rollers around hair, pull hair taunt, and continue to roll hair up to the scalp.

● Repeat until all sections are completed. If any section starts to get dry, spray with leave in mix.

● Let dry completely.

● When dry, take down the rollers and gentle separate hair with fingers to create volume. DO NOT COMB!

1. What makes this sleek is the technique, not product. You will need to make sure the sections are small and your pulling hair taunt when rolling.

2. The gel or setting lotion is optional, but if you use it, the style will last an extra day or two and resist frizz.

3. If your hair is not completely dry when you undo the style, it will frizz. Depending on how damp your hair is and the rollers you used, it could take upwards of 24 hours. Feel free to sit under a dryer to speed up the process.

4. To make the style last, just put up in a ponytail, or if your hair is short, make small ponytails. Do not apply water, this will make the style frizz and shrink the hair.

5. Depending on the hair, you could get 3 days to over a week out of the style.

Amazing Benefits Of GINSENG Herb For Hair Growth

By On 11:41 AM

We know of all the things we use to aid us in attaining our goal of healthy hair, nature provides the best bounty. So far in this blog, we have looked at a number of super foods, herbs and natural oils that never fail to deliver and now we are going to focus on another one "Ginseng" 

I know most of us have heard about ginseng roots and how it boosts the body cells. Do you know it also boosts hair growth? This post will highlight the uses of ginseng for hair so that you can assess how it can help you in your journey to healthy hair.

You will no doubt be able to find ginseng in energy drinks, supplements, tea blends and even shampoo and conditioner. The truth is you can find it in health food stores in the plant or powdered form, root form and perhaps even in the fruit, so there really is no shortage of options I believe the tea makes a better choice for those who can’t stand the strong smell rather than the shampoo and conditioner.

The thing that makes ginseng effective as a hair growth booster is the compound known as Ginsenosides

So What Can Ginseng Do For Hair

Well you can try using Panax Ginseng, it is an anti-apoptotic, it helps improve the proliferation of dermal papilla cells. Hence,
▪Its topical application improves hair’s regeneration ability.
▪It encourages hair growth by stimulating blood flow to the scalp.
▪It also improves the health of hair follicles and cells, thus preventing hair loss.
▪Combacts hairloss- it's often associated with a weak immune system. A Healthy immune system enables your body to fight off infections and diseases, thus promoting overall health including hair health.

Just typically know that when your body is very busy  with repairing itself, it becomes unable to perform other functions such as hair growth which ultimately results in hair loss.
The herb 'Ginseng' facilitates a proper blood circulation as well as optimum oxygen absorption by the blood.

By improving the health of the internal body parts, it automatically combats hair fall. Attack cancer cells that may lead to hair loss from chemotherapy. Relieves stress that can cause hair to shed prematurely Attack DHT that causes follicles to wither up and die too soon Help women with genetic balding to regrow hair.

So when next you are out there you can grab a ginseng tea both for hair and overall health.

Note: Please make sure to consult with your doctor before use or in case of side effects.

Health Benefits Of Good Posture

By On 12:37 PM
Good posture

Good posture is very important and a part of being and to remain healthy. Posture helps you avoid back pain and premature wear on the bones, it improves lung performance and so many more. 

Below Good Posture will explained including the ms you benefits we derive from it.

What Is Good Posture
Posture is the form that your body takes when you are sitting, standing, and laying down. Maintaining "good" posture is positioning your body so there is less strain placed upon your body's muscles and ligaments when in these positions.
It requires your body to be as close to its natural shape as possible. So if you are sitting down, this would mean:

Keeping your chin up and looking forwardKeeping your shoulders back (not slouching)Bending your knees at a right angleKeeping your feet flat on the floorKeeping your back straight enough that all 3 natural curves of the spine are present.Sitting with good posture distributes weight more evenly across your muscle groups - helping you avoid neck, shoulder and back pain. It also allows you to comfortably work for longer periods and avoid some serious long-term health problems.
Having a chair with lumbar support will help you maintain good back posture.


What Are The Benefits Of Good Posture

Protects Your Future Health
Having good posture will keep your joints correctly aligned, protecting the joint surfaces from abnormal wear-and-tear. By preventing this type of wear-and-tear, you can lower your risk of various illnesses including arthritis and postural hunchback.

Breathing Easily
The diaphragm is a large muscle that is responsible for respiration. When the diaphragm moves, it changes how much pressure there is within the thorax - causing air to either enter or exit the lungs.

Posture affects breathing because it changes how much room the diaphragm has to move. If you are slouched in a chair or while walking, the diaphragm cannot contract or expand as easily, preventing you from taking deep breaths. As soon as you correct your posture, you will immediately notice how much easier it is to breathe. This is a particularly useful benefit for anyone who has a health condition that affects their breathing.

Helps To Prevent Back Pain
Developing good posture can eliminate back pain caused by stressed muscles and poor joint alignment. It does so by actively reducing the strain placed on the muscles and joints by spreading weight across the entire body. This ensures that certain muscles or joints are not overworked or damaged.

Over time, having good posture will even improve the alignment of your spine, which will improve the condition of your back and reduce the risk of back injuries. You will be less likely to suffer from herniated discs, muscle strains or other back problems.

Improved Physical Performance
Good posture requires the use of more muscle groups. Not only does this reduce the chances of straining a single muscle, it can lead to an improvement in overall physical performance. Having the ability to engage muscles more evenly will help you perform better during daily activities and any sports that you play.

Strengthens The Core
If you have already made improvements to your sitting posture, you will have noticed that your abdominal muscles feel more engaged. Your abdominals will be "sharing the load" with your back muscles as they keep your torso stable. The more you improve your posture, the stronger your core will get, thus improving the alignment of your spine, reducing stress on your back muscles, and improving your mobility.

Helps You Appear Attractive
Most Artist during talk shows always exhibit and maintains  impeccable posture. These Artist focus on having good posture because they know and understand how much it affects their appearance. By sitting tall in their seat and keeping their chin up, they will look much more beautiful or handsome to the viewers at home. You will gain the same benefits as you improve your posture.

Improves Digestion Of Food
Sitting or standing with good posture will ensure your internal organs are in their natural position. This makes it easier for the body to digest food and perform other important functions like maintaining good blood circulation.

Helps Improve Your Mood
Researchers from the University of San Francisco have discovered that having good posture can help improve a person's mood. They found that improved posture could also increase energy levels and reduce the risk of mental illnesses like depression.

Improving your posture can deliver some amazing benefits to your health and lifestyle. If you are interested in developing good posture, talk to a chiropractor or general practitioner. You can also use online resources like NHS choices to learn more.

So many ladies prefer to transition rather than chopping off their permed hair in order to start a healthy hair journey. I transitioned for 12months, I set a goal to go all the way to one year before I trim, and I did achieve that.

Transistioning could be frustrating especially if you did not do your home work before embarking on it. Dealing with two different textures could be tasking. So if you discover its getting you worked up simply trim off the strands and continue braiding and fixing as you wish.

To Ensure A Successful Journey Below Are Some Points To Get You Started

Finish Your Old Products
Before you become a product junkie, use up your old products first. Refraining from becoming a product junkie will force you to focus on your hair regimen –which is most important.

Introduce New Product One At A Time
As you use up your old products, try to use new ones one at a time. Do not pile up your cabinet with products you hear about and use all at once. This way you can tell what is working for you and what is not.

Pay Special Attention To The Line Of Demarcation
This is simply where your relaxed ends meet the natural hair. This is the weak point so take extra care to reduce breakage because chances are that this is where breakage will occur. Try to avoid heat styling options and over manipulation. Try twist out styles and use perm rods at the tips as this will help give the two textures an identical look.

Do Not Be Obsessed With Curl Pattern
It sure is tempting but you cannot see your true pattern until all relaxed ends get cut off.

It is in big letters to emphasize the importance. lol. Contrary to popular belief it is actually a good thing to deep condition with heat so do not be afraid to try a little hooded dryer sometimes. You could also get conditioners that say deep conditioner on the jars/bottles to properly nourish your strands. African Best hair mayonnaise is a good product to use and Shea Moisture has some deep conditioning Treatments.

Treat Your Hair Like It Is All Natural
Practice makes perfect right? So why not try getting good at two strands twist out, flat twists out, Bantu knot out and corn rows? Be sure to use perm rods/rollers at the tips so the textures are blended.

Clean Scalp
The key to healthy hair is a clean scalp. Your scalp creates natural hair sebum so do not be tempted to lather on grease. Instead opt for lighter oils like jojoba oil or Castor oil to massage scalp but always avoid Mineral oil. Keep hair and scalp clean whenever you see build up.

Trim Ends
Contrary to popular belief (again) trimming regularly will not give you a faster growth but it will reduce breakage especially during the Transition. Trim off split ends regularly as you will have them. Besides you will be cutting the relaxed ends off anyways right?

Protect Your Strands
This is especially important. Do not over manipulate your hair. Make good use of protective styles so long as they are not too tight or kept in too long. Your hair is very fragile at this stage so protection is key. Deep condition and practice retention.

Be Patient
Sometimes it may seem like your hair is not growing and it can be frustrating dealing with different textures. At this point you may be very tempted to whip out your jar of relaxer since it is what you are familiar with and it´s ok to feel that way. However if you are dedicated to keeping your natural hair then a lot of patience is required. Your hair grows an average of 1/2 Inch a month just like everyone else. So try to remember that and protective styles help a lot as it stops you from obsessing over length every minute. Before you know what´s happening, you have a head full of amazing curls.

Let Your Expectations Be Real
To get satisfactory results, it´s ideal to learn the different ways of dealing with your hair in Transition mode and it´s imperative that you do not expect your natural hair to act like relaxed hair. Once you have finally accepted the growth pattern and nature of your curls, then you will be more understanding of dealing with it carefully. Try to recreate styles that enhance and highlight your new texture together with the relaxed hair that you are growing out.

Are you transitioning? If yes, how is it going?

Dry hair

One reason why a lot of women are reluctant to go natural or give up easily on their natural hair journey is mostly due to the “dry hair epidemic”.

In the black hair community, no matter how many products we use on our hair, it seems like nothing can keep our kinky, coily hair soft. You might even think that your hair is against you and enjoys frustrating you.

However, if you really look deep down into the reasons why your hair is always dry, you’ll soon find out that it’s because of some of the things that you’re either doing or not doing to your hair.

Below Are Few Reasons Why Your Hair Aways Feels Dry And What You Can Do About It

Using Too Many Products
Ever heard the phrase “less is more” or “too much of a good thing could be bad”? I’ve heard of naturals who will use a leave-in conditioner, styling cream, styling gel, and other product combos just to achieve a simple hairstyle such as a twist-out. Layering too many products on your hair will not only weigh your hair down, it will also cause product buildup that can leave white residue on your hair.

Also, applying too many products in your hair can leave it feeling greasy, sticky or even stinky. Another reason why using too many products is bad for the health of your hair is that it doesn’t allow your hair to absorb any moisturizing cream that you might decide to apply on your hair at a later time.

Not Using Enough Products
I always giggle at product instructions that recommend using pea-sized or dime-sized amounts of their products in my hair. You see, Type 4 Natural hair is very coily and mostly thick and so products applied to the hair must be applied to small sections of the hair at a time so that the entire head of hair can receive equal amounts of nourishment.

This means that a mere pea-size amount won’t do the job. To ensure that your hair stays moisturized for days, you want to ensure that you apply generous (but not too generous) amounts of product on your hair, starting from the tips and working your way down to the roots- just make sure that you work in a downward movement.

If you suffer from extreme dryness of hair, you can try this homemade oil mix. Never fail to spritz your scalp and hair at regular intervals. Oils work for me in combating dryness (because they seal in moisture), so I recommend this recipe. You must not use all the oils if you don't have them. You can add palm kernel oil to it, Ifavailable in your local market [it's an African red oil produced from palm fruits]

The Multi-Oil mix
This leave-in recipe is for oil lovers like me. It will condition your strands, increase the luster of your hair, and reduce split end formation and breakage while styling.

▪3 oz avocado oil

▪2 oz extra virgin olive oil

▪1 oz almond oil

▪1 oz castor oil

▪1 oz melted extra virgin coconut oil

▪5-7 drops of your favorite essential oil

▪Pour all the ingredients into an oil mixer.

▪Shake the bottle well to thoroughly mix the oils together.

▪This can be used on damp (but not too damp), freshly washed hair.

Always remember to sleep with your satin cap on, it also helps to fight dryness as it helps to retain moisture in hair.

Thick hair

Hello lovelies, I trust everyone is doing great

Like the saying, “a little drop of water makes a mighty ocean” we can also say, “saving a single strand of hair makes a BIG head of hair” #‎smiles.

Our natural hair is fragile and, of course, prone to breakage and shedding when mishandled. Over time, doing a tea rinse helps put this to check. However, prevention- they say- is better than cure.

Here Are Three Ways To Grow Thicker Hair

The scalp produces natural oils that protect the hair and keep it healthy. Washing of hair every single day hurts the hair in the long-term and prevents it from getting thicker. Twice/thrice a week will just be fine.

In addition, hair should be washed with cool/cold water as hot water is hard on hair, causing it to dry out and get brittle. Washing the hair with cold water helps the hair shaft lie flat, protecting it from breakage and damage.

Our hair is not a piece of cloth that should be washed, balled up and wrung out!  To grow thick hair, after washing, gently pat hair dry (with an old t-shirt) and let it air-dry thereafter.

Brushing hair while it's still wet is yet another way to break it, causing it to thin out. Use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to gently work through tangles. Save the brush for when your hair is dry, since it's less fragile in that state.
