  • want to know how many liters of water to boil tawa tawa leafs

  • i have 3 year old daughter and im happy to kn0w the alternative med. Of the famous dengue, strike in this rainy season.

  • My friend used papaya leaves to increase his daughter’s blood platelets when she had 1st-grade dengue about 6weeks ago. He used the following procedure:

    > Wash clean a bunch of papaya leaves then heat over an open fire until they become a little soft and wilted.
    > Chop finely.
    > Place chopped papaya leaves on a clean cloth (tshirt quality), roll the cloth, and wring out the juice. The cloth will act as a strainer.
    > Drink pure.

    He had his daughter take it 4-5 times before her next blood test and her platelets shot up to normal.
    Note, however, that other symptoms of dengue have to be addressed as well.

  • here in Cebu or most Visayas area, people have been using this tawa-tawa (mangagaw in bisaya) eversince. lots of dengue-infections were saved just by using boiled tawa-tawa. take it from me, my daughter was also one of those saved by tawa-tawa.
