Dengue Fever Remedy

I would like to share this interesting discovery from a classmate's son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was in the critical stage at the ICU when his blood platelet count dropped to 15 after 15 liters of blood transfusion.

His father was so worried that he sought another friend's advice and his son was saved. He confessed to me that he give his son raw juice of papaya leaves. From a pallet count of 45 after 20 liters of blood transfusion, after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice, his pallet count jumped instantly to 135. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After the second day he was discharged. He asked me to pass this good news around.

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned, pounded and squeezed with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf. So two tablespoons per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will lose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like Wong Low Kat. But it works.

*Papaya Juice - Cure for Dengue*
A friend of mine had dengue last year. It was a very serious situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3 days in hospital and water started to fill up her lungs. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-year old. Doctor said there's no cure for dengue. We just had to wait for her body immune system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle. She already had 2 blood transfusions and all of us were praying very hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was admitted.

Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeeze the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subsided. We continued to feed her with papaya juice and she recovered after 3 days!!! Amazing but it's true. I found that it's also good when one is having sore throat

Please spread the news about this as lately there are many dengue cases. It's great if such natural cure could help to ease the sufferings of dengue patients. Furthermore it's so easily available.

Blend them and squeeze the juice! It's simple and miraculously effective!!
my dear readers, please pass this around to as many contacts as possible cos it may save someones lives.

Eating pig's trotters is good for ladies

Pigs' trotters: the new superfood - Last Updated: 12:01am GMT 03/02/2008

As Britain's spending on cosmetic surgery soars, Fiona
MacDonald Smith suggests it's time that we chopped and changed
our diet instead.

The latest anti-ageing food? Pigs' trotters. That's right, you
heard it here first. In New York, the most talked-about new
opening of the past couple of months has been a Japanese
restaurant called Hakata Tonton, where 33 out of the 39 dishes
contain pigs' feet.

The reason for this, according to its owner, Himi Okajima, is
that they are rich in collagen, the protein responsible for
skin and muscle tone, more recognisable to beauty addicts in
the form of face creams and fillers.

"Collagen helps your body retain moisture," says Okajima, who
has introduced a chain of restaurants specialising in collagen
cuisine in Japan. "Your hair and skin will look better, but
it's not just for looking beautiful now. If you begin eating
collagen in your thirties, you will look younger in your

Maybe this sounds a little improbable ("It's news to me,"
sniffs Lisa Miles of the British Nutrition Foundation. "I've
certainly never heard of eating collagen") but Okajima believes
he is on to something. Figures published last month show that
British spending on cosmetic surgery is the highest in Europe,
hitting nearly ?00 million in 2006, four times more than in

Isn't there a cheaper solution? Couldn't eating the right
foods, in the right way, be a simpler, and ultimately more
long-term way to stay looking and feeling younger? "You are
what you eat
," says nutritional therapist Ian Marber, aka The
Food Doctor.

"You can't turn the clock back but you can slow things down.
Every cell replicates from RNA and DNA. In order to keep the
DNA in good condition, you want to protect cells from harmful
free radicals. And for this you need to eat fruit and
vegetables, which contain vital anti-oxidants like vitamins A,
C, E and zinc.

"It doesn't have to be expensive," he adds. "I know people go
on about so-called 'superfoods' which have a greater
concentration of anti-oxidants, but two apples a day will give
you plenty of vitamins and fibre. You just need to ensure a
varied diet."

"The key is to remember we're omnivorous," agrees nutritionist
Christian Lee, who is the national trainer for the Dr Nicholas
Perricone cosmetics and nutrition empire. "Have you ever
noticed how women age more rapidly than men?

That's because they don't eat enough protein. The days you
don't eat protein are the days you age. The body can't store
protein, but it needs it for cellular production and function.

"At each meal you should be able to hold up three fingers and
say 'I've got a good source of protein (lean fish or poultry,
nuts, seeds or tofu); an essential fatty acid (Omega 3 or 6, so
that's coldwater oily fish, flaxseeds, linseeds) and a low
glycaemic carbohydrate (fruit, vegetables, and wholegrains like
quinoa, buckwheat and oatmeal)'. If you can say that, you're on
the right road."

Perricone, a dermatologist, became America's most famous
anti-ageing specialist with his "Three-Day Nutritional Face
Lift", which extolled the virtues of eating wild Alaskan salmon
twice a day, claiming its essential fatty acids would banish
puffiness and tighten the skin. Uma Thurman, Heidi Klum and
J-Lo are all fans.

In his new book Ageless Face, Ageless Mind, which has yet to
reach the UK, Dr Perricone's team assert that up to 40 per cent
of wrinkles are caused by dietary sugar.

"When you eat high glycaemic carbohydrates like bread, cakes
and pasta, they turn into sugar in the blood so fast that the
pancreas can't respond with enough insulin and the blood
becomes saturated with sugar," argues Christian Lee. "The sugar
needs to go somewhere so it attaches itself to the cell

When it does this to collagen molecules in the skin, it causes
the collagen to become stiff and immobile and that's the birth
of the wrinkle. The bad news is that it doesn't end there - the
sugar then pumps out free radicals, causing a double whammy of

The good news is you can prevent it - either by cutting out
sugar or by taking a supplement of alpha lipoic acid, which is
400 times stronger than vitamin C and E combined."

So ditch the sugar, but don't forget the pigs' trotters.
