What is in a seed?

At close to 90 years of age, my mother, Rispah Grace, has had her share of health challenges. When my dad passed away in 2002 due to prostate cancer, my mother already had been suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure. For all these years we have been praying for her, and have liberally used herbs to clean her kidneys, liver and keep her blood pressure down. We are so grateful that we don’t have to be running to the doctor’s office every now and then, as had been the case before.

I attribute this to God’s grace, His healing power, and His way of working through the provisions He created that are all around us in the natural environment.

Besides Prunus Africana and the simple concoction of corn silk tea, another useful remedy is papaya seed.

Most of us scoop out the papaya seeds and throw them away, then enjoy the fruit. Instead, we now collect the seeds, clean them off and dry them in the sun or in a dehydrator. Once they are dry, we put the seeds in a blender and reduce them to powder. The powder can be sprinkled on your food (it has a peppery taste) or put into capsules. There are recipe ideas online for a variety of sauces that include dried papaya seed.

What are the benefits of papaya seed? Among many, these are a few.

  • Treats liver disease (cirrhosis)
  • Kills bacteria and heals viral infections
  • Helps prevent kidney disease
  • Alleviates skin problems.

So, as we pray for good health, we do not have to spend a lot of money and time in the doctor’s office. Some of our issues can be addressed by these readily available natural ingredients.
