aloe vera

is one of the most amazing miracle plants on the planet. It's so fantastic, it's like aliens put it here. It stores for months- cut it and it heals itself ! It's a smart plant- it can tell the difference between normal cells (which it stimulates), and bad stuff like viruses, cancer, leukemia or HIV- which it stops from spreading. It's antiviral, antibacterial, used for candida, parasite, fatigue syndromes, fibromyalgia, allergies, arthritis, and skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It eliminates toxic wastes, has EFAs and is a powerful antiinflammatory that helps stomach and colon, which it helps clean. It helps every part of the body cleanse itself. Since it helps clean out the bowels really well, it greatly reduces bloating, discomfort, and helps ease stress, which only leads to more attacks of irritable bowel syndrome. It's very popular for conditions like indigestion, acid reflux, IBS, colitis, Crohn's disease and ulcers. (reduces ulcers by 80%!) It reduces cholesterol and triglycerides, helps metabolize fat and is greatly used for... oh where do I start- adult diabetes, asthma, angina, blood sugar, cholesterol, acne, AIDS, anemia, arteries, athletes foot, bad breath, hair loss, bladder infections, bronchitis, bruises, burns, bursitis, cataracts, cold sores, colic, colitis, constipation, cuts, cystitis, depression, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, bursitis, glaucoma and vision problems, etc. Aloe has all kinds of natural steroids, antibiotics, amino acids, minerals, enzymes and stuff we haven't even discovered yet. Put it on your skin and it soaks right through into your body and blood stream, going right to work. Speaking of SKIN- Aloe is miracle skin stuff- it's rich in organic silicon and helps make strong cell and artery walls, mucous membranes, and the connective tissues of bones and cartilage, while working on skin cancers, hemorrhoids and varicose veins. After being absorbed into the skin, it stimulates the fibroblasts cells and causes them to regenerate themselves faster. It's the cells that that produce the collagen and elastin so the skin will get smoother and look younger. It stimulates lymph movement and even has aspirin-like salicylic acid. Cut off the outer skin and stick the gel in vagina for infections and irritations. There are over 400 species of aloe, but Aloe VERA is the one you want. The only type mentioned as toxic is Aloe venenosa. Types known to be ok are Aloe vera, Aloe vulgaris, Aloe socotrina, Aloe chinensis, and Aloe perryi. Some people have reactions to the latcx in aloe, so test a small amount first. Taking too much over a long period of time may cause kidney problems. It cleans out the digestive tract so well, it might be uncomfortable for some.
