The Dictionary on Traditional Chinese Medicine states that Carica Papaya
contains papain. Papain helps fight cancers, kill lymphatic leukemia
cells, probacteria, parasite and bacillus tuberculars, helps diminish
inflammation, normalizes the function of the gallbladder, alleviates
pain and promotes digestion. Papain has a stronger curative effect on
gynaopathy, glaucoma, osteoproliferation, healing of wounds, blood
grouping and insect bites. Papaya powder can also promote blood
Women in Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka have long used papaya as a remedy
for contraception and abortion. hMedical research on animals confirms the contraceptive and abortifacient
capability of papaya, and has also found that papaya seeds have a
contraceptive effect on adult male langur monkeys, possibly in adult
male humans as well.
Phytochemicals in papaya may suppress the effects of progesterone.
The black Papaya seeds are edible, and have a sharp, spicy taste. They
are sometimes ground up and used as a substitute for black pepper. In
some parts of Asia the young leaves of papaya are steamed and eaten like
Hawthorn is considered a "cardiotonic" herb. Its flowers and berries
have been used in traditional medicine to treat irregular heartbeat,
high blood pressure, chest pain, hardening of the arteries, and

Many herbalists believe that the antioxidants in hawthorn may help
protect against heart disease and help control high blood pressure and
Stinging nettle has been used for centuries to treat rheumatism, eczema,
arthritis, gout, and anemia. Many people use it to treat the early
stages of an enlarged prostate, for urinary tract infections, kidney
stones, hay fever, and in compresses and creams to treat joint pain,
sprains and strains, tendonitis, insect bites and rheumatoid arthritis.
With distinctive yellow, widely spreading roots it is a herbaceous
perennial, growing to 1-2 m tall.
The soft green leaves are 3-15 cm long, with a strongly serrated margin,
a cordate base and an acuminate tip. Both the leaves and the stems are
covered with brittle, hollow, silky hairs that were thought to contain
formic acid as a defence against grazing animals. Recent research has
revealed the cause of the sting to be from three chemicals - a histamine
to irritate the skin, acetylcholine to bring on a burning sensation and
serotonin to encourage the other two chemicals (Elliott 1997).
It is abundant in northern Europe and much of Asia. It is less frequent
in southern Europe and North Africa. It can be found in Canada and the
USA (excepting Hawaii and South Carolina) and also occurs in Mexico.
In the UK it has a strong association with human habitation and
buildings. Sites of long abandoned buildings can often be deduced from
the presence of nettles. This is believed to relate to elevated levels
of phosphate in soils from human and animal waste. This is particularly
evident in Scotland where the sites of crofts razed to the ground during
the Highland Clearances can still be identified.
Sheep Sorrell (Rumex Acetosella) is high in chlorophyll. This herb helps
to carry oxygen through the bloodstream. It improves liver, digestive,
and bowel functions and is indicated for inflammatory diseases, tumors,
cancers, and urinary/kidney diseases.
Rumex Acetosella is a species of sorrel bearing the common names sheep's
sorrel, red sorrel, sour weed, and field sorrel. It has green
arrowhead-shaped leaves and red-tinted deeply ridged stems, and it
sprouts from an aggressive rhizome.
The flowers emerge from a tall, upright stem. Female flowers are maroon
in color. The plant is native to Eurasia but has been introduced to most
of the rest of the northern hemisphere. In North America it is a common
weed in fields, grasslands, and woodlands.
Livestock will graze on the plant, but it is not very nutritious and
contains oxalates which make the plant toxic if grazed in large amounts.
