THE WONDERS OF PAPAYA LEAF

By On 10:15 AM
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.

HOW TO USE

* 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.

Health Benefits Of Good Posture

By On 12:37 PM
Good posture
Picture Credit: Pinterest


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.

Low Metabolism And Ways To Spark It

By On 10:10 PM
Metabolism


Hope Juliasdailytips readers are doing great, I am so grateful for having you guys and also for your contributions in the comment section, thank you guys.

Will love to discuss about low metabolism and how to rectify it. One of reasons why some folks struggle with weight issues, might just be because, they have low metabolism.

I have slow or low metabolism, and I have been struggling with loosing some weight, and I tell you it's a long process that desire patience and persistence but there are also ways to speed up the metabolic rate of our body system which has worked for me.

What is Metabolism:

Metabolism can be defined as a process of how calories are burned off by our body, which in turn refer to how much energy that is been used up.
When you your body burns calorie fast, it signifies the rate of how much weight you loose. So if you workout, have a healthy eating habits but you are not loosing any pound. Then probably low metabolism is the culprit.

There are a few sickness that can cause some folks to loose or gain weight, mostly thyriod. Often times age might also play a role in low metabolism, when your body system functions in a slow rate, then you will find it difficult cutting off calories and some pounds. This is mostly the reson Why people with low metabolism feel fatigue, are sluggish and often times have joint pains.

Another reason why one experience low metabolism is the body blood circulation,  if your blood don't circulate well, it can stall the process of burning energy. Depression also slows your metabolic rate, when your are moody your body slows down as well.

There Are Few Ways To Spark Your Metabolism 

Green Tea - Studies have shown that Green Tea can help boost fat burning. Green Tea helps with weight loss, improves digestion, lowers blood sugar level, lowers cholesterol, etc. Green Tea breaks down the fat with the help of the cells which moves through the bloodstream.
Green Tea  contains about 24g-40g of caffeine in 1 cup and caffeine is a stimulant. So it helps to stimulate the body functions of energy used up. Green Tea is also loaded with antioxidants too, which help boost the metabolism.

Chilli Peppers - This hot pepper derives its heat from oily chemical compound called Capsaicin and it is located in the membranes which surrounds the peppers seed.
Capsaicin helps in boosting high metabolism by the function of thermogenesis which is a process our body burns off calories into heat and use it up as fuel,
To make sure that you shed extra pounds with Chilli Pepper, you will have to watch out what you eat by cutting down calories.

Whole Grains - It takes our body alot of time and extra work to break down whole grains than processed foods. It will be good to keep your metabolic rate high by eating grains rich in fiber that will make our body work harder to digest.
Examples are oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, etc.

Raw Garlic - A research has shown that eating raw garlic speed up the metabolism rate by supporting blood sugar break-down with the help of control lipids levels in the blood.
Eating raw garlic also ward off heart disease, lowers blood pressure, fights inflammation and boost the immune system.

Beans - Beans are rich with soluble and insoluble fibers, our body process of digesting the protein and fiber found in beans helps to burn of extra calories. These fibers helps to lower insulin levels after digestion occurs which causes the body to store less fat,

Drink Lots Of Water -  Drinking up more water helps to increase the rate which we burn calories. Drinking up 1.5 liters of water daily helps to increase our metabolic rate.
If you do this consistently for a year not only will you have a high metabolism you will be free of toxins and radicals in your body system.
You will also need to have 8 hours sleep daily, because our body burns calories while we are asleep.

Water Flushes Out Toxins From Our Body System

It will be very nice if we make taking water a daily habit and this is achieved by drinking a cup of water when we wake up from sleep every morning and drink more cups of water during the day.
Unwanted toxins in our body system will be flushed away through urine and this also helps to get rid of bacteria living in our bladder and kidney.

There are some diseases for example, Urinary Tract Infections which can be caused by less intake of water. Also the kidney are very sensitive and easily overthrown by disease.
