    Great article. I feel like the dandelion would fit well on this list. It’s a diuretic and it can be eaten entirely from the roots to the flowers. It’s a coffee substitute, a salad green and its petals can be fermented in a brew.

    I never knew the papaya was so useful.
    Thanks for the article.

    Quite true, especially with papayas. People don’t know about the naturally occurring benefits of this wonderful tree. During my 8th month of pregnancy my doctor asked me to eat lots of papayas to help ease labor pains. I followed her advise even though my family forbid the fruit! I had a very fast labor and my son had a natural birth. I bet it was all the papayas I had eaten! Thank you for writing this post, I just read it out to my family now to prove the benefits of these natural wonders.
