Dear editor: After my first published article, on the effect of Carica papaya leaf juice on dengue fever patient in Sri Lanka Family Physician – 2008, 29, 17-19 and details about this research in the independent medical association news letter of Srilanka , there was a wide publicity to these findings in the local and international media. This resulted in many patients using this simple herbal remedy on their own when they were diagnosed as having dengue fever. Many patients under my care living in and around my medical clinic (Maharagama – Sri Lanka) took this treatment on their own accord and I had the opportunity of observing the effects of Carica Papaya leaf juice on about 60 dengue positive patients which included Hospitalized patients- including 10 treated in the Medical ICU.
The above link and paragraph quote, secured my confidence to advocate the findings of Doctor Sanath Hettige MBBS, DFM, MCGP, MD. In 2008 responding to the urgent pleas of his wife, also a doctor, to find some remedy to halt the dying of young children she painfully witnessed in her practice as a MD.
Doctor Hettige, having a passion for research discovered papaya leaf extract was a rapid cure for all types of dengue fever. As reported, this discovery was in the year 2008. The next posting on our family site will be the article he submitted to the Sri Lanka Family Physician – 2008 referenced in the quote above.
The recent posts, consolidates hard copies of the truth we are sharing in our efforts to; “Bury dengue fever, not us, not our children and infants”.
