Pakistan’s Natural Course for Healthy Living

Lahore school papayaThis morning at the breakfast table, before leaving for school, I passed around juicy, succulent papaya slices.  Three of the young people in front of me made faces and turned it down claiming they didn’t like papaya.  Furthermore, it was explained to me that as a whole Pakistanis don’t eat papaya.  In fact, in the villages it is simply thrown away.  I am an English teacher, but I think this morning I got a shocking education.

I can’t imagine turning down fruit, let alone throwing it out.  I come from northern Canada where we are lucky to grow some hardy apples, some strawberries and a few other fruits in the summer.  We simply don’t grow fruit in the winter.  Papaya, mango, guava and all these exotic fruits do not grow in Canada.  So it is unimaginable that someone would throw fruit away. 

I tried to explain, as any good teacher will do, the benefits of eating this fruit.  The fruit has anti-bacterial and anti-parasitical properties.  There are many other benefits too.  But it is the leaves that I want to talk about today.

The headline for Pakistan Today reads “Dengue on a never ending spree”.  Dengue fever cases throughout Pakistan, including Lahore are on the increase.  Many of the ill cannot afford the expensive medicines needed to combat this disease.

Pakistan holds a natural cure for dengue fever and it is time that Pakistani’s are taught what that cure is so they can put themselves on a course that not only cures the disease but also prevents its occurrence.  There is no need for a science course or degree, one simply has to go to the market or pluck this fruit from the tree.

Pakistan has papayas, lots of them; yet so few people eat them to reap the benefits of this delicious fruit.  And it is not only the fruit that has health benefits, but the whole plant has medicinal properties as well.  But today, we will take a short course in the cure for dengue.

Papaya tree leaves – the cure is in the leaves.  The juice extracted from the leaves replenishes the necessary platelets.  All you need to do is cut down two green leaves, remove the green segments of the leaves (don’t use the leaves’ veins and then grind these leaf segments to a paste.  A mortar works well, although you need the strength to grind the leaves.  You will only get a small amount but you will feel the positive effects of it within 24 to 48 hours.  Take 4 teaspoons twice a day for 5 days, but you must mix it with some sweet juice (such as mango) as this past as a very bitter taste.

Recent medical research and tests in Pakistan, India, Malaysia and Costa Rica, just to mention a few countries, are finding evidence that papaya leaf extract may be nature’s cure for dengue fever.  So, it is time we take advantage of those papaya plants that we have been blessed with in this country, find out all we can about them and eat the benefits of the papaya plant; its fruit, its leaves, its roots and even its seeds.  We will put ourselves on a course of healthy living.

July 2012 Spoken English Graduating Class

It was a fun-filled 3 months of speaking English.  Participants in our Spoken English class had a good time learning how to be better English speakers while all the time they were learning those difficult perfect tenses.  Surprisingly learning grammar can be fun, especially if you use specific tenses while discussing everyday happenings.  Try learning the past perfect tense by describing your day backwards!

It was good fun and we did learn how to use those tenses while talking.

Our classes are intentionally small so that everyone gets a chance to participate.  And sometimes you just have to recognise certain students.  Amber came to the class shy and unable to communicate the many things that bubbled inside of her.  By the end of three months she could make herself understood and was able to communicate in English.  So congratulations Amber, you did well and I hope to see you in the Fall for another class.
