I am a 42yr old male diagnosed with ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura)which has caused low platelets for two years. I tapered myself completely off prednisone while taking the papaya leaf extract. All along my counts kept going up. As of April 14th, 2011, I have been totally off prednisone for over 3 months, and I am still maintaining a count of 94K! I am presently taking two teaspoons a day. This product has been a miracle for me!

It all started on June 15, 2012. This was a very stressful time in our lives. I came home from work, and I noticed my granddaughter had pin-size spots on her face. I immediately checked her body everywhere. I found a huge plum-size bruise on her back, bruises everywhere on her legs. We took her to the hospital and was diagnosed with ITP, her platelet count was at 5. We rushed her to the hospital 3 hours away where she received a transfusion. Within a week, her platelets were at 78 and was discharged. In 6 days, her platelets dropped again, so we rush her back for another transfusion. After this, because of the distance, the doctor prescribed her Prednisone. I was bothered by this because I am a person that does not take medication, do not run to the Doctors for anything. I truly believe God created earth and placed everything on earth to help us heal ourselves, we just need to search it out. August long weekend, I spent time by myself to pray while my husband went to a funeral and my daughter took baby with her to the lake. In the morning of August 3rd, we took her for a blood test, then they left to go camping one province away. That same day, the doctor called later to tell me that baby's platelets were at 10. She phoned in a prescription at the town where my daughter arrived. She started that treatment and ended it on Tuesday after that long weekend. I spent my time seeking God for answers, and continued to search on the Internet for solutions, asking God for his help. I have read testimonies before about Papaya Leaf Extract, but thought ordering from the US would take forever for an item to arrive where we live. PH balancing of the body came up and is so so important but I was always taken back to the Papaya Leaf Extract many times. I then called my daughter and told her there's a cure for baby! I ordered the liquid extract from Amazon.com. Thank you Lord again, they were so quick. August 13, her platelets were at 8, August 15 is the day the extract arrived, I started her on it immediately. August 17, her platelets were at 10 (FIRST TIME THEY CAME UP WITHOUT BEING ON STEROIDS!), August 20, her platelets were at 25, August 27, her platelets were at 41, September 5, 2012, her platelets were at 88!!! Thanks Amazon.com for letting me know in advance when my item was arriving..

My granddaughter is being treated for hodgkins lymphoma and has had to delay treatments due to low platelet counts, which were never above 60. After taking a 4 oz bottle for 1 week her count was over 125. I don't know if this can be sustained, but I ordered 6 more bottles for her to try.

Short Version:
Product works!!

Long Version:
I have low platelet counts due to pregnancy induced Thrombocytopenia. This is my 3rd pregnancy to have low platelets. At the time of delivery, my platelets have been 104 and and 107 in the past. If platelet count is below 100, most anesthesiologists will not give an epidural due to risk of spinal bleeding. For me, this would mean a c-section with complete anesthesia. If platelets are too low, there is also a risk of a platelet transfusion.

When my labs came back with a platelet count of 107, I was sent to a hematologist. A week later, my platelets had dropped to 98 with 10 weeks left in my pregnancy. I ordered the Papaya Leaf Extract and took it for 10 days. My platelets jumped to 131!!! I took it throughout the rest of my pregnancy and my platelets stayed strong.

The extract tastes awful, so I mixed mine in juice and then you can't taste it.

The bottle does say not to take while pregnant, but from my own research on the web, I figured it was fine in the 3rd trimester.

We've had great success with this product. We recently prescribed to a stage 4 cancer patient. They were having issues with extremely low platelet count at around 50,000 after taking the product for less than a week they went to the doctor and the count was up to over 120,000. This is a great product!

After speaking with many herbalists who had no clue of what to advise for low platelets, a Chinese practitioner told me about papaya leaf extract.
I always know when my platelets are low, due to tiny bruises and nose bleeds, with clotting sometimes.
I use Papaya Leaf Extract and also Papaya Leaf Tea, to maintain my health.
They have to best prices in comparison to other competition.
The extract is somewhat hard to find elsewhere.

I have posted a review previously on the fantast results of this product. I am a CLL patient and also have an autoimunne disorder called ITP-both causes low platelet counts. This product has helped me avoid expensive Rituxan treatments and has helped my overall outlook and general feeling of being well. I increased my platelet count from 7,000 to well over 88,000 using this product. I am anxious to see the results on my next blood test. This review is on their service though. My last order wasn't received well after the date I was suppossed to recieve it. I knew something was up because previous orders were lightning quick and this order was overdue by 3 weeks. I contacted them and in a matter of days they confirmed the order was lost-their first time. In a matter of a few days they replaced the original order and sent me more with a coupon for my next order. They do care and left a personal messages while I was at work on my answering machine from a very nice young lady. This company and its representatives and products are top notch. Thank You Iowa Select.

I am a 43 year old male. I was diagnosed with ITP in 2008. I was chronic, with counts as low as 2000. To make a long story short, I gradually weened myself off prednisone while taking four teaspoons of the extract a day. I mixed the product with fruit juice to make it taste better. I was able to raise my platelet count from 95K to 164K in two weeks. Once I was completely off prednisone, I was still maintaining my counts. I let my doctor know what I was doing. It's been over two years. The extract seems to have built up in my system. I take two teaspoons every other day and I am maintaining a count of 169K. This product has been a miracle for me. I am off all drugs and treatments and I have avoided surgery. I don't know if this will work for everyone, but this has been my experience.

I have a double edged sword, diagnosed with ITP in 2002 and CLL (leukemia) in 2009. I had treatments with rituxan in 2009 and 2010 to help platelet counts. This is always a struggle as both afflictions cause low platelet counts. Recently after an illness my platelet counts crashed again below 10,000. In the past they have been as low as 2,000! I read about the papaya leaf extract online after searching for alternatives, as I didn't want to go through rounds of expensive treatments again. Too I always feel so awful when my platelet counts are low with joint pain, fatigue, gums bleeding, and so on. I decided to give this a try after reading the reviews and asked my Doctor if I could hold off for a couple weeks (I didn't tell him what I was doing). Next week I checked after a few days and my counts had went up to 39,000, the next check was 48,000, and the week after that it went up to 79,000. I quit checking after that and my hematologist at the health and oncology center said I didn't have to see him now till regular check-up time in 4 months after the last check. I had been praying about not going for the expensive treatments again and this is trully a gift from God!!!
