My name is Virginia Robertson and I am focused on papaya leaf tea research, promotion, and production because it is, in my opinion, the most powerful and affordable anti-cancer natural product on earth.

My journey to this conclusion began with frustration that this natural product could have possibly kept my mother, Julia Ruffin Robertson with me longer in this life.

As I learned more and more about enzyme therapy over years I could not understand why this was never a subject in school, or why it is not discussed more with doctors. The natural leaf brewed as a tea is a most powerful enzyme therapy and grows all over the world in warm climates. This makes for a valuable and inexpensive medicinal option. The active enzymes in the leaf include papain and chymopapain. If you are unfamiliar with enzyme therapy then read on! This discovery will be worth your time.

I want to start conversations with this blog that will change people’s lives. I am a realist and I understand that it is hard to change our eating habits. But this tea can simply be added to your daily life and can make a difference in your health. This herb covers and makes up for a good amount of our bad eating habits. It has been shown to be nontoxic even in large doses. I am not a doctor and am not an authority on drug interactions, however, so please consult your doctor.

I want the people who take the time to read this blog to become as confident as I am in the science of this leaf and why our bodies need it so much to fight disease… Not just cancer, but arthritis, diabetes, bronchitis, malaria, and many, many more.

This blog is dedicated to the sweet memory of my mother, Julia Ruffin Robertson

  10. Hi
    My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in Dec 2013, since than she went through 8 cycles chemotherapy. Chemo ended in July 14. Currently she is not consuming any medicines apart from vitamin supplements. Now doctors said they will keep evaluating the reports and see how it goes. I heard about papaya leaf and anxious to know whether I can start giving her papaya leaf juice?
    Shall be grateful if you can share the method and dosage.


    • From the studies I have read, Papaya leaf tea is complementary therapy and can be used with Chemo and certainly after. Brew through a coffee maker with similar portions as coffee or loose. Drink outside of meals for best effect twice a day.
      Consult your physician.

  11. Hi. My name is Lisa. My Aunty has Sarcoma and I was wondering if papaya leaf tea would help her. She is also on dialysis 3 times a week. I can grow the plants to use so any advice would be helpful. Thank you for having this blog.

  12. Hello Virginia! Thank you for this wonderful collection of articles!
    My father was diagnosed with Dendritic Cell Sarcoma, a very rare type of cancer. We were struggling with his platelets (when it’s down, he can’t get his chemo) and I found that papaya leaf juice increases it.
    We started taking it 20 days ago and we had the best response ever. It’s amazing. It has been more than 9 months since he hadn’t reached 150.000. So happy.
    But since he is taking fresh juice (two doses of 10ml a day) and you talk about papaya leaf tea, I am wondering if the juice can do any harm, or if we shold give it some intervals…
    Do you know anything about that?
    Thank you so much!

  13. Hi Virginia! Just discovered your blog surfing for info how to make tea from powdered dry papaya leaves and thankful for your philanthropy! Kindly add my name to your emailing list! Thanks in advance for the tea recipe quest that led to you in the first place!!!

Please here what I share here… I know you have great ears, and thanks for the kindness you have shown to me and many others over the years
