Aloe Vera – Good for almost anything that ails you!

Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is a wonderful healing herb that is part of the lily family even though most people think it is a cactus. It has been used for centuries and was even found in Egyptian tombs.
Aloe is known as a contact healer. It is very useful on burns. It is one of my favorite remedies for almost any digestive issue from ulcers to diarrhea. If you have crushed the gooey gel out of an aloe vera leaf, you have seen its mucilaginic properties – in lay terms, anything gooey and slimy helps repair mucous membranes – inside or out. It contains chemical properties that allow it to penetrate deeply and heal each layer it comes in contact with.
Aloe is a gentle cleaner. In the dried, concentrated form, it is useful for constipation. In the liquid form, it will gently clean the digestive system while getting rid of parasites – it is especially good in small children for pinworms. It is one of my favorite remedies for digestive upset in small children (and grown ups) – if it comes back up, it doesn’t stain.
Aloe is a great tonic herb that can be used for long periods of time with no harmful effects. Aloe soothes and heals the stomach lining and is very useful for acid reflux and GERD.  Aloe will improve symptoms of arthritis and diabetes. Aloe is slightly estrogenic and has been used for centuries by women for hot flashes and for keeping the skin looking young and beautiful. The Sanskrit name for aloe translates to “goddess”.
One of the most remarkable properties of aloe vera is its immune building properties. It naturally increases infection fighting white blood cells. Aloe contains special polysaccharides that help cells in the body communicate better. This translates to building natural killer cell activity, which destroys abnormal cells that if allowed to grow would cause some disease state.
Aloe Arborescens is a special aloe vera supplement combined with honey and alcohol that has a remarkable reputation for boosting the immune system so it can overcome advanced disease states. This specific form is also being used preventively.
The Aloe Arborescens recipe is based on the work of Father Romano Zago of Brazil. For more detailed information, look him up on the internet or read his book “Cancer Can Be Cured.”
What we know and can say about this formula is: it provides gentle cleansing for the whole body; it promotes healthy blood, cardiovascular, colon and immune system health; and it is 200% richer in phyotheraputic compounds than regular aloe.
Regular aloe vera is also a good animal remedy. Many people use it for ulcers and diarrhea in horses.
Aloe has an interesting property of increasing the absorption of any nutrient mixed with it. Studies show a 200% boost of uptake in vitamin C when mixed with aloe as compared to the uptake of the same vitamin C mixed with water.
. Note that if the aloe is mixed with too much water or harmful additives, it will not be effective – as with any natural product, quality counts.

    I have GERD. What is a good aloe vera supplement to buy that is high quality?

    • My favorite aloe is Premier Research – this is not a “retail” brand – it is sold thru practitioners.
      I also sell the Lily of the Desert brand that is good – they have a Stomach Formula that is aloe combined with soothing herbs that works very well.
