More than 95% of humanity suffers from one form of gut disturbance or another. (WHO)
I saw some powerful stats the other day also, which relate to chronic depression. Did you know that 1 in 4 people suffer from some sort of depression every year? (US based Monitoring). I'm sure you or someone close to you has experienced depression on more than one occasion throughout life and there are many triggers. I was in and out of it for most of mine :(
Now, here's something you may NOT know. Depression IS related to poor gut health and a lack of nutrients in the cerebral fluid. The number of people experiencing anxiety and depressive thoughts is on the increase. I meet them everyday in the café and many of them have been referred here by friends and family members who are benefiting from making minor changes to their daily eating habits. Good gut health is paramount if you want to feel good. Serotonin is made IN THE GUT! I emphasise this because most people don't know this. Once you understand how the body works and how important good gut health is, you will find it easy to get good results. For my clients and cafe customers, using green papaya powder and adjusting their diet to include more plant-based proteins, helps turn things around... fast!

What Happened To Me ?
An unhealthy gut does impact on the quality of life and, in some cases, it can be tragic. I know, because I nearly paid the ultimate price for my years of chronic gut illness 9 years ago when I almost choked to death after a chronic acid reflux attack. Thankfully, I survived, got help, and am now living to tell my tale to anyone who is hungry for knowledge and willing to listen.
How Do We Fix The Growing And Devastating Problem ?
The morning after my near fatal reflux attack, which by the grace of God, the great source or whatever you choose to call ‘ the almighty’, I was ‘guided’ to locate and obtain some green papaya powder and began using it immediately. I did a simple Google search on acid reflux and up came the following... 'inability to break down protein' ' protein malabsorption' 'proteolytic enzyme (in the form of green papaya) which supports the breakdown process in the gut.' I got me some green papaya (from India if I remember correctly)! The first night I took it, I was able to sleep lying down flat! With continuous daily use and within 12 months, all the following health related symptoms had subsided or completely disappeared:
I became totally focused on discovering how the gut worked and why it's so important to maintain healthy microbiota (good bacteria) in our stomach. This is the secret to good gut health.
My philosophy and daily mantra is 'eat food that grows on the land that you walk on'. I now work with growers in far north Queensland to obtain the freshest, spray free green paw paw/papaya fruit. We dehydrate the fruit at no more than 43C to help retain nutrients and maintain enzymatic qualities.
How Does It Work ?
The papain enzyme in papaya carica is proteolytic in nature, which means it seeks out proteins within ingested food and supports their breakdown. This leads to the creation of healthy chyme – a ‘rainforest ‘of green nutrient rich liquid – which flows into the small intestine where the actual absorption takes place.
Very quickly the gut begins to function properly again as nutrients are absorbed more efficiently through the body at the same time supporting the re-alkalization process. A gut not macerating food correctly, fails to break down proteins, which remain in the lower intestinal tract, rot, toxifying the body and supporting the presence of PARASITES and other diseases.
An ACID body is prone to greater illness. A properly functioning gut will quickly create more alkalinity thus changing the body’s acid/alkaline ratio.
I literally owe my life to Green Papaya. It is as SIMPLE as taking one flat teaspoon of powder in water, once a day after the main meal, at the same time developing more food awareness. Food will either help heal the body or quicken the body’s demise.
