  1. 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.

  2. 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.
