:cheer: I was diagnosed with ITP last September.My Platelet Level was 1 when I went into the hospital.Over the months I have had IVIG many bottles and 1 bottle of Rituxan which just about killed me.After these treatments my platelet levels would go up some 143 then back down to 27 or lower.My DR. was talking about trying N-Plate next.One day at the Drs office
to have my weekly bloodwork done a nurse said"I have a young Leukemia patient who is taking some Papaya Leaf Extract and it is raising his platelet level".I ordered the Extract off of Amazon.Started taking 30cc a day.My Platelet level has gone from 76 to 114.This has been since March 2011.My levels stay in the 100's.Papaya Leaf Extract is a known treatment for Dengue Fever and is known to elevate Platelet levels.This has been a miracle for me.I thought I was doomed to IV'S and too expensive meds for treatment.I'm now going for labwork once a month nd see DR every 4 months.I pray it will work for all who try it!

We used papaya leaf extract as a mother tincture for a short time. We didn't continue though as we went another route. It seems to be a common treatment for platelets in foreign countries.

It comes in liquid and pill form.I order mine from Iowa Select Herbs or from Amazon just put in Papaya Leaf Extract in the search on Amazon.I am taking some pills along with the 30cc of liquid each day! My lab last week was 114! Goodluck if you try it!

If Papaya leaf extract is raising your counts, then what is it doing?

It has to be either :

1.) stimulating the platelet production,
2.) changing the platelets,
3.) changing the anybodies so they are not attaching onto the platelet,
or
4.) Inhibiting the liver from destroying the platelets?

Hello I was just wondering how your numbers are now? I am considering Papaya Leaf Extract and I know it will not work for everyone. I am just curious as to how your numbers are now.

I just ordered mine. I have to try this for sure. I read very good reviews about it on amazon.

Here you have the links of amazon and also the manufacturer who have a bigger bottle that I didn't see in amazon.

www.amazon.com/Papaya-Leaf-Extract-4oz-120ml/dp/B000OAZDB2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310182837&sr=8-1

stores.iowaselectherbs.com/-strse-9/Papaya-Leaf/Detail.bok


I was diagnose with ITP in the first week of June 2011. My first treatment is Dexamethasone and my platelets went from 30 to 124 in the first 2 weeks but there been decreasing for the last two weeks from 124 to 80 and yesterday 54. Im avoiding the use of another corticosteroid for the moment and try something more natural.

I will give an update of my results later.

It would be great if any of you try this or will do it in the future get back here to this post and tell us your experience.

Hi,My last platelet count was 114 and has continued to be in the 100's since March 2011.
My Hematologist told me as long as I continue to stay above 30 I'm good!

Do you think the tea would do the same thing?

I never have tried the tea by itself.It may work but your labwork will give you the skinny on how well.I take the papaya leaf extract which is definitely stronger.My platelet levels have stayed in the 100's.

I ordered my daughter some of the extract. She had Rituximab last Sept/2010 but the last couple of months her platelets have been dropping. She has been taking the extract for about 2 weeks, but has missed a couple days. Her platelets last month were 157k. I just got her results and they are 173k, the first time they have actually gone up. Not sure if it has anything to do with the extract but "it can't hurt and just might help" I will continue to use it even though she despises the taste of it. Thanks for sharing this treatment idea with us.

I tried the Papaya Leaf extract and it didn't work for me for some reason. We actually ordered the leaves and got fresh extract but since that didn't work and my platelets stayed under 10 after two weeks after receiving Ivig my mom decided to go to Florida and actually get it completely fresh and we tried that and I'm still waiting to see if it works. I just got a blood test on Monday and my platelet count was 153 but I think it was because I just recently got Ivig last Wednesday. Does this work better than just getting it directly from the leaf?

I believe the extract liquid is stronger! Just had another bloodtest 7/19.My platelet count was 108. I take 2 TBSP on an empty stomach wait 30 min before eating or drinking.

Question: Is it permanent as in you take it for a couple of months and then you're cured or you have to keep on taking it for the rest of your life?

Since I began taking the extract in April my numbers have stayed in the 100,s I don't want to take a chance on them going back down so I continue to take it.If you stop and your level starts to go back down then start taking it again!

Here you go:

We ordered online at herbalpapaya.com and we are using the extract capsules and tea together for about 3 months. They have been hugely effective together. :cheer:

Hi Dimples,

you say using extract capsules and tea together has been hugely effective.Could you possible post some, "before and after" platelet numbers so we can all see these good results.

My own numbers are still falling so would like to see these good numbers posted. Now on weekly blood tests and off to see Haematologist Wed this coming week.

Thanks
Benny.

I'm onboard to try this. I have been at 2 then 11 with two rounds of IVIG (HATE THAT STUFF)...then another IVIG up to 17...now back at 2. They want to start me on N-plate but I want something else to give here. I just ordered mine. Hopefully it'll give me more than 2!

I've been taking the extract for a month and the only thing it did for me was instead of having to get Ivig every 2 weeks I now get it every 3 weeks. I'm still taking it though and hope it works in the long run. The doctor put me on promacta though so I'm not getting Ivig anymore but my platelets are 12 and they're still trying to adjust the dose. Whoever this works for do you just take the extract or do you have other treatments that go with it that keep your platelets up?

Hi Bev,
wishing you good luck with the Papaya Extract, and I will watch out for your results. I am just coming off 40mg of Prednisone and experiencing all the fun stuff.

Yeah, just signed up for N-plate with a count of 2. I haven't responded to IVIG nor prednisone so I did order this up. Surprised that none of the healthfood stores carried this extract. Had to order it online. Surprising. Frustrated, as N-plate can take up to a week to get. That is ridiculous. Jump through this hoop, then that one then this one.

Please keep us updated on your platelet levels.

I was diagnosed with I.T.P. May 2010. I have IVIG nearly every 5 weeks. It's terrible!

I plan to order Papaya Leaf Extract. Do you take the papaya pills along with the papaya leaf extract? I hope it will work.

Thanks for updates

Thank you for your reply. I ordered the papaya leaf extract and plan to start taking it today. How much should I use per glass of water?

I had IVIG last Tuesday. My platelets were -10 as they are after 5 weeks. I felt I should wait a few days prior to starting the Papaya left extract.

Do the pills work as well as the extract? Which pills are you taking?

I'm so glad to hear your platelets are in the 120's. That is wonderful.

I am looking forward to my platelets going up to 100's and holding. Can't wait to get off the IVIG and all the terrible meds.

Please keep us informed on your platelet count. Thank you.

Lady Elly,

If you read through all of page 2 of this thread a couple of people talk about how much they are taking and whether they are taking capsules or liquid. I think you'll find what your looking for there.

I started on the papaya leaf extract today and took it 3 times with 16 oz water each time. It may be too much water.

How much water or liquid did you use when using the papaya leaf extract? Did you use 2 tbls at one time? How much many oz of liquid? How many times per day? What is 30cc equal to in teaspoons? What can I use for a measurement to equal 30cc?

Thank you.

I take the extract once a day in the am before breakfast.I wait 30 min before eating.2 Tablespoons in the morning is all I have been taking.More probably won't hurt.
