Papaya Leaf Tea; Enzyme Therapy for Cancer

Papaya Leaf tea can be taken as a form of enzyme therapy. Proteases (protein dissolving enzymes) continue to show effect against cancers in the lab.

Dr Beard, the Scottish embryologist, showed the effect of trypsin (similar to our body’s natural protease) taken from a young calf on human cancerous tumors. The enzyme “ignites” activity in the human body. In Dr Beard’s studies, trypsin injected directly into cancerous tumors appeared to slow down or stop tumor growth.

Why would we need more proteases in our body if it already produces trypsin? Dr Howell, the famous enzyme scientist, addressed that question by the analogy of our bodies having an enzyme “bank” that becomes depleted as we age and when we consume cooked food. The idea is that cooked food does not contain necessary digestive enzymes, so the body essentially must borrow from the “bank”. When the bank becomes depleted of proteases from digesting cooked food it has less ability to use these enzymes for healing.

Additional factors create an environment for cancerous, non-differentiated cells to grow. A Key to changing toxic, low oxygen cellular environments is to give your body the digestive enzymes necessary to function food digestion and remove toxic waste as it builds up in the blood.

Enzyme therapy contributes to this goal. Papaya leaf tea has a very unique set of proteases in nature called papain and chymopapain. These proteolytic enzymes are more powerful than your body’s trypsin.

Papaya leaf tea can be a form of enzyme therapy if taken on a regular basis and for a minimum of three months.


Papaya Leaf Tea has Effect Against Cancer

Papaya leaf tea is used as alternative cancer therapy in fourteen countries. I have studied the science and the farming of the herb for six years. It seems odd that the large papaya fruit-bearing tree is actually classified as an herb. It seems equally odd that the young leaves of this tree make such a miraculous medicinal tea.

Scientists that have studied the anti-tumor effect of the leaves find various medical reasons that the tea has effect against cancer. One of the most well known is research by Nam Dang. I choose to stick by my favorite; that the tea has an unusual enzyme to nature called papain that breaks down and dissolves proteins. Another form of “protease” is called trypsin, and is naturally produced by our pancreas. The protease dissolves the fibrin, or protein coating around our cancer cells or running in our blood thus freeing our bodies to fight or prevent the cancer.

The leaves need to be initially heated to 150-160F degrees to activate the enzyme, therefore, a “tea”.
