Is it ok to drink aloe vera if you take plavix?
does aloe vera work for strech marks ?
can you drink aloe vera while on plavix
From Early 2008 through Jan 2011 the V.A. has attempted to control the 4 different types of Psoriasis that covered 85 percent of my body. I have had bi-weekly injections of Humira and 4 different cortizone cremes since June 2008, to little avail. In February 2011 I started drinking 2 oz of Aloe Vera every morning AND evening. In my travels around the world I have drunk some really nasty stuff, but nothing like ALoe Vera. Having said that...the Psoriasis that was so bad last fall has been reduced to about 10 percent of my body. My type II diabetes readings are now consistently less than 125 down from 200in the mornings and my A1C is now 5.7 . With the great amount of improvement that has taken place in the last 90 days, nasty taste or not, I will continue to drink Aloe Vera

I had nail fungus after manicure, which wouldn't heal for more than 3 months. My cousin recommended fresh aloevera juice to apply, which I did twice a day and it has healed 90 percent. It is an amazing herb, use for any problems and You must also take fresh juice on empty stomach. It is a guaranteed cure. it is also helpful for brown spots or pigmentation on your face, just rub the pulp on affected areas morning n night for 3 minutes and go to sleep with it. You will find improvement in few days. Thanks to my cousin hover
I dropped boiling water on my foot one morning before work. I had socks on and it held the heat a bit. I burned the top of my foot seriously in about a 1 & 3/4 inch irregular diameter. I took the sock off and put my foot under cold water for about 4 minutes. I felt pain. And was frightened by what I saw. I may have had a 3rd degree in the very middle of the burn it looked mushy and pink. I then went on the internet. I read that home treatment for burns was the use of fresh aloe vera. And impressively, I read aloe was used as a treatment for people after being burned in Hiroshima. Those who were treated with fresh aloe had less infection, faster healing and less scarring.
Fortunately I had a large aloe vera plant with big leaves. I cut one off and split it down the middle. I laid the oozing flesh on top of my foot, I then put a sock on and then my leather slip on full-cover Birkenstock shoes. They are a kind of flat slip-on clog style. This acted as a tight bandage and held the aloe onto my foot. The aloe also eased the pain and it became really only a discomfort. I worked 8am-2:30pm that day.
When I came home I replaced the aloe again, placed a clean sock and the shoe. I did this about every 4 hours. When I went to bed I also put on new aloe leaf and a sock, and laid a towel over the sheet as the sock oozed. The aloe caused my socks to get a brown stain, however when I scrubbed them it came out.
I did this treatment faithfully. The second day I brought leaf with me and put a fresh one on during my lunch. I really had little to no pain. One day I took the aloe off and let the air to it for about 10 minutes and it began to hurt. I then put a fresh aloe leaf on again and the pain went away!!! the leaves were - always flesh down - and these were thick, about 3/4 of an inch in thickness and up to 3-4 inches in width. When I would cut them through the thickness they would be about 5-6 inches wide.
I now am utterly convinced that aloe is the best treatment for burns. I never put any kind of salve on my burn. I used this treatment for about 12 days-maybe 14, because it was such a deep burn. In fact, I didn't even want to examine it because it worried me that it may have reached vital foot ligaments or such. It healed to a pink skin and I have a scar that is the same texture as my normal skin, but shows an outline of the burn and it is a little darker than my normal skin. However, it is lightening up with time.
what a website
I am really disappointed that you did not talk about one component of aloe - aloin - which appears to be the dangerous part of the plant including significant correlation with colorectal cancers in rats. You did not warn about severe diarrhea as a common side effect...Aloe vera is a remarkable plant, but like most things in nature, it can have nasty and even dangerous side effects. Balance your reporting if you want to be taken seriously.
Can aloe Vera help for dry,itchy under eye circles? Dry face?
Aloe vera : Slice it in small portions and swallow as is and you will have no need for so called "health Care Provider" ----- they would be "patiently" bankrupt! Have a healthy Aloe Vera day.
I read instructions for using Aloe years ago, so I remove the green outer leaf, rinse it to remove the slimey substance and then eat the gel which is the main part of the leaf.
At one time I bought whole leaf capsules of Aloe and got terrible diarrhea from the two capsule dose recommended so tried one capsule with the same results. Threw the rest of the bottle out, and now I only use fresh aloe prepared as above.
I eat a piece about one to two inches deep the width of the leaf just before going to bed This cured a ulcer and prevents it from returning and am going to try a small piece a half hour before meals as someone on the site has suggested to aid digestion. For my skin I use any part after removing the skin. I once had it stop the pain from stinging nettles in just a couple of seconds.
I keep two large plants growing in my sun room in the winter and my deck in the summer so I always have access to it. Wouldn't be without it.
Yes you may apply Aloe Vera directly on skin, face, hands...I tried that today as my face was looking very out of shape, dry and a bit wrinkle, maybe caused by the fact the I smoke, and in just one time treatment, it left my face looking smooth and clean. This plant is awesome I strongly recommend it.
I'm loving my Aloe - I'm drinking it daily and my Acid Reflux is doing awesome - No more sleeping sitting up! I think the burns in my esophagus have healed!
I'm quite amazed that there has not been major emphasis on Aloe Vera's capacity to heal burns.
My x-wife brought our baby son back from a day out visiting her sister and he was as red as a boiled lobster - she also had some aloe vera and said the sunburn would be alright. My fury abated over the days as he did not have any of the symptoms typical of bad sun-burn, he slept well and did not seem troubled in the least. It really jarred my sense of reality and what was possible - no medicine I knew of could do anything like that.
Since then I have used it on burns and scratches and recommended it to friends that have had the same sort of success I had experienced and seen. A friend's wife was shockingly sun burnt on one occasion and she recovered without any pain or trouble - although the two days before getting some aloe vera from us was a living hell.
A tomato grower near my sister in law's farm was bottling tomatoes in some form that required them to be boiled and then bottled. Unfortunately his wife had an accident in which her upper chest was plastered with boiling tomato juice. The husband had an aloe vera plant so he cut a leaf and slit lengthwise and then applied it to the burn area. The wife was taken to hospital were she ultimately had a skin graft - it was in the cleft of her breasts where the husband had missed applying the aloe vera, the major burn area recovered without any skin graft.
I always keep some aloe vera plants around the house as it is the best thing I have ever seen or heard about for (at least your average) burns.
Thank you very much for your feedback regarding burns. I have now updated our article. Aloe vera is a remarkable plant with many health benefits!
ahm i just wanna ask,.. huw to prepair this herb,.?
I just break off a leaf, wash it and eat it. That simple.
I'm curious. I have recently bought an Aloe Vera plant and will use it for its surface active benefits which I've seen on my pet dog. However I am curious regarding whether or not it contains salicylic acid or perhaps its precursor salicin.
The reason I ask is because the acid has a number of negatives when taken internally including gastric irritation. I daily take willow bark tincture and sometimes meadowsweet. I've tested the willow bark in an infusion and it is alkaline, suggesting that it is not actually salicylic ACID but salicin present.
In the body salicin is metabolised and excreted as a salicylate but because it skips the harsh organic acid state, appears to cause no gastric side effects.
Hence my curiosity. Many folk conflate salicin with salicylic acid, with acetyl salicylic acid, whilst the end result i.e. salicylate is common, the route there can be less damaging.
I was experiencing some arthritis pain in my left leg since I been taking aloe Vera 100% organic juice from shoprite the pain and stiffness went away.

So we have a hereditary disease called neurofibromatosis. They are tumors and they grow in the brain both of my boys were diagnosed and they drank aloe hole leaf, 4-5 tablespoons of whisky and 2 1/2 cups of honey in the blender. Stored in a black jar and there tumors have shrunk. They are healthy and normal teenagers. It is truly a blessing that they have had aloe vera to drink and that they are not having to have brain surgery any other treatments. God is good. Aloe was token from the garden of eden by Adam for a reason.

Aloe Vera does not have any B-12
Thank you for your feedback. I have now amended the article as you are correct that it seems there are only trace amounts at best of actual B12 in Aloe vera. Where it does seem to help with B12 is in aiding absorption and bio-availability of this and other foods and supplements.

I was told to give my 3 month old aloe for his tummy aches.

I have scarred, red cheeks from mild acne. I have a phobia of acne and have to squeeze as soon as I seen them so I guess that's the results. I want to know how long aloe vera or aloe vera gel will take to clear the redness and perhaps take away my scarring. I'm 17 and had beautiful skin once, I just want it back. Nothing else has worked am really desperate. I've been using aloe vera for about a day or two now
Where are your references for this article???
aloe is not the only known source of b12 and you do NOT want to give it to your 4 legged companions. It is toxic to dogs

Can aloe vera plant be used on cuts of wrist?
I love aloe vera juice. Been drinking it daily for years (the pure juice, not the rind in whole leaf). Also use aloe vera for my skin. I would caution your readers to avoid any drink or skin product of aloe vera that also uses the latex (just under the rind of the leaf) as this can really irritate your skin (learned the hard way). Only the pure inner gel (should be the first item listed in the ingredients) is of benefits both for the skin and internallyl
Fresh Aloe boiled is really good in removing swellings, or retaining water. It worked on my swollen ankle in less than a day. It's also good to clean your bowels and blood.
I have been drinking aloe vera juice for 2 months now. I had severe pain in my hands and was on predisone which was great, got rid of my pain, but it always came back, bad side effects. Aloe Vera is a miracle in itself, pains gone, feel great. I will drink this forever, great stuff.
Hi Babs, Am hoping it's not too late for you to answer my question. I have really severe knuckle pain in my hands. I have bought some aloe vera powder today. I don't suppose you have any idea how much I should use? How are your hands feeling now after using the juice for 3 months?
I bought an Aloe Leaf from Whole Foods Market for about $1.50. I cut the outer green off as much as possible. I keep as much gel and filet as possible. If it's colored pink, it has a bitter taste, so I don't keep that. That is found sometimes near the tip. I put slices and gel in a jar with lid, and keep in the refridgerator. I eat about 4-6oz per day (when I remember). Today, I woke with headache, (first in years), after about 5 hours, my son suggested I take the aloe in the fridge. I forgot I had it! I did, headache was gone immediately! I'm not a doctor or anything. I use homeopathics and believe in nature as medicine, when possible.
can i use aloe vera gel in URIC ACID & R-FACTOR PROBLEM.
Does aloe vera give you back your natural hair colour (from gray)? If so, is it applied directly to the scalp or taken internally?
I use it to treat my burned vocal cords, which occurred from
Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR).
When you drink the aloe vera - what part of the plant do you "drink"?
Also, when using it for hair loss do you just put the slimy part of the plant on your scalp? Also, when using it for faces, again, is it the slimy part of the plant?
Thanks to anyone who could answer my questions - I really want to try it.
Hi, I started using aloe vera juice after a year of having cronk stomach infections. Only antibotics would give me relief. And then the infection would slowly return. Aloe vera cured me. I take it everyday. Not only does it help my stomach, my skin and hair are healthier, it gives me energy and i finally lost that 10lbs i have been wanting to ask. I would recommodent finding aloe made by Univera, you can google it. Its the best quality and its not expensive
I add it to a good basic lotion like Fruit of the Earth Aloe lotion which already has some aloe in it. I also add about 15 gel caps of vitamine E to it and use it on my ankle where I have had a rash and swelling every since I broke my ankle. It works great. I get the Aloe Gel from GNC and it is a large brown bottle and doesn't cost much at all, it lasts quite a while. It must be refregerated after opening. It is the real aloe gel. I also put it in my face lotion, I put it in all medications that I give my dogs so the meds won't irritate their stomachs. It has many uses and very effective inside or outside the body. I do caution people who take the dry powdered form, it is good for arthritis but only use it when you need to take one. Not every day. I took one capsule every day for about a year to prevent arthritis pain and it had a bad effect on my thyroid. It went into overdrive.........oh, I lost weight but didn't feel good and it gave me headaches too after a while. Use powdered form with caution.
IT IS TRUE ALOE VERA CAN BURN EXCESS FAT/ LOOSE WEIGHT?
i am using aloe vera plant directly on my face daily , my skin colur is black, is there any possibilites that my skin look fair and glow
I have had aloe vera liquid for the past 3 months and it has really helped my stomach problems. I have gallstones which cause indigestion and bloating which is very sore and painful at times. Since taking aloe vera these stomach issues are now very rare for me which is great! They were a daily occurance at one time (and I mean ALL day I was in pain with my stomach) and I would recommend anyone with stomach issues tries aloe vera. It perhaps took a few weeks to fully ease the stomach discomfort but now I will not be without it!
Also since then people have commented on how good my skin looks and I also put this down to taking the aloe vera liquid daily.
A delightfully informative article. I knew that aloe juice helped the GI, but the rest was new info!
had a very stiff neck a d after trying everything - i got relief after using aloe vera still using it
After I drink and eat aloe vera(natural grow from my back yard) for a few days I feel my body so much better.
Before my lower back has a lot of pain, my body is cold, I couldn't pee easy, my body is so sick and so weak.
I think people should eat or drink "natural grow alo vera" for better health, just pay attention to your body you can feel a lot better for Real.
My teenaged son spilled gasoline on his forearm, which ignited. He had a large burn from elbow to wrist. I cut some aloe leaves, split them and laid them on the burn, and used gauze to lightly hold them in place overnight. In the morning, he had healed places in the exact shape of the opened aloe leaves. Around the outside of these shapes was second degree burns I had not been able to see when I applied the aloe.
my dad told me to drink aloe many years ago as he did. it healed his stomach. i have IBS and drink it when it flares up and it really does sooth and take the pain away. it works wonderfuly for me !!
