Kidney Stones: Aloe Vera   17 y  
Q: Can you give me any information regarding the use of aloe vera, internally, in the treatment of kidney stones. Is there such a thing as an aloe tea? A: DISCLAIMER: Please use this for your information only, and not as any kind of diagnosis or remedy prescription. Kidney stones should be treated with the supervision of a professional health-care provider.
In my research, I have not come across a great deal of specific information regarding aloe vera juice and kidney stones. However, because it is such an effective demulcent, coating and nourishing the body’s membranes and tissues, internally and externally, it has been used for that purpose for other internal irritating diseases such as colitis and Crohn’s disease, and Ayervedic medicine has a history of using it as a tonic/demulcent for the liver. Therefore, it seems reasonable to assume that it would be an herb of choice to act as a tonic demulcent to help pass kidney stones with less pai ...   read more

Diabetes: Aloe Vera Study   17 y  
The succulent aloe plant has been valued since prehistoric times as a topical treatment for burns, wound infections, and other skin problems. However, recent evidence suggests that oral aloe might be useful for type 2 diabetes. Evidence from two human trials suggests that aloe gel can improve blood sugar control.
Aloe A single-blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluated the potential benefits of aloe in either 72 or 40 people with diabetes (the study report appears to contradict itself).21 The results showed significantly greater improvements in blood sugar levels among those given aloe over the 2-week treatment period. Another single-blind, placebo-controlled trial evaluated the benefits of aloe in people who had failed to respond to the oral diabetes drug glibenclamide.22 Of the 36 people who completed the study, those taking glibenclamide and aloe showed definite improvements in blood sugar ...   read more

Aloe Vera For Colon Detox   18 y  
Colonic irrigation is a technique which loosens and washes out these residues. Some practitioners are finding that Aloe Vera Juice, if taken daily for a period of several weeks, helps to ensure that the irrigation process is greatly facilitated. However, it is more usual to find that a regular, daily course of Aloe Vera Juice is sufficient to gently and gradually break down, loosen and assist in the natural dispersal of these residues.

Aloe Research Claims   18 y  
I will follow up and find the original studies
Russian research has shown benefits to conditions other than those for which Aloe Vera is most well known. These include improvements in bone tuberculosis and broken bones, inflammatory gynecological conditions, paralysis caused by polio; ear, nose and throat conditions, and bronchial asthma. They have also found that Aloe Vera can help slow the aging process. Both Russia and the United States have carried out extensive research into the use of Aloe Vera for all types of burns. They found that compounds within Aloe Vera can help the burn heal, and can also have a cleansing and antibac ...   read more

Aloe Colon Clense without a Colonic   18 y  
You drink 5 ounces of aloe vera three times a day before meals. Between meals you drink 4 ounces of aloe vera with cranberry and papaya, 1 ounce of an herbal brew (aloe, camomile, golden seal, yellow doc, coconut oil, and potassium salt), and a tablespoon of powdered psyllium husks, (licorice, and hibiscus). Mix that up, drink it, and follow it with a glass of water. That does the trick."
”What happens, is that you actually stick new fecal matter to the old fecal matter when it gets in the colon, and the action of the colon literally strips it out. In around 3 days it’ll probably come out, two feet or more long, all in one piece, when you first get on that cleanse -- without a colonic. And then you aren’t upsetting the normal absorption of minerals that go back through the colon wall into your blood. You’ll see dark brown, spots, or tough, stringly stuff, 2 to 2 1/2 feet long, wrapped around, or attached to, the new fecal matter. That’s the old fecal matter, all in one pi ...   read more

Aloe & Mineral Oil Cures Psoraisis   18 y  
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in Tropical Medicine and International Health, 60 patients with chronic psoriasis were given a 0.5% aloe Vera extract in a mineral oil cream.
Heals Psoriasis Lesions: The ointment was applied three times daily for five consecutive days (15 applications total per week) for four weeks. When patients were checked after eight months, far more psoriasis skin lesions had healed in the aloe group (82.8%) than in the placebo group (7.7%). Further, 83.3% of the aloe group were considered cured of their psoriasis compared to only 6.6% of the placebo group.   visit the page

Study Aloe Vera:Gastrointestinal Problems   18 y  
Aloe is also thought to improve a number of gastrointestinal conditions, according to a 1985 study conducted by Jeffrey Bland, PhD, of the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine. Ten healthy subjects consumed 6 ounces of aloe vera juice in 2-ounce increments three times daily. After seven days, tests indicated improved digestion of protein, decreased bowel transit time and improved water-holding characteristics of stool. Aloe vera also improved the balance of gastrointestinal symbiotic bacteria.28   visit the page

Aloe treats Seborrheic Dermatitis   18 y  
Aloe The gel inside the cactus-like leaves of the aloe plant (Aloe vera) has traditionally been used to treat burns and cuts. A recent study indicates it may also help relieve the symptoms of seborrheic dermatitis.
In this double-blind placebo-controlled study, 44 adults with seborrheic dermatitis applied either an aloe ointment or a placebo cream to affected areas 2 times daily for 4 to 6 weeks. Compared to the placebo group, those who used aloe reported that their symptoms improved significantly (62% vs. 25%). Doctors who examined the participants also concluded that those using aloe had a significant decrease in scaliness, itching, and number of affected areas.1 Dosage For seborrheic dermatitis, apply aloe gel 2 times daily on the affected areas. Seborrhea Seborrhea is a fairly ...   read more

Study:Aloe Vera heals Herpes   18 y  
Genital Herpes: A 2-week double-blind placebo-controlled trial enrolled 60 men with active genital herpes.13 Participants applied aloe cream (0.5% aloe) or placebo cream 3 times daily for 5 days. Use of aloe cream reduced the time necessary for lesions to heal (4.9 days versus 12 days), and also increased the percentage of individuals who were fully healed by the end of 2 weeks (66.7% versus 6.7%).
A previous double-blind placebo-controlled study by the same author enrolling 120 men with genital herpes found that aloe cream was more effective than pure aloe gel or placebo.14 13.

Aloe Vera:Cancer Tumors 29/30 Participants   18 y  
ANTI-CANCER Several scientific studies have found evidence that aloe may have anti-cancer abilities. Shamaan et al.12 found that vitamin C and Aloe vera extract were able to reduce the severity of chemical hepatocarcinogenesis, which is the development of liver cancer. In this study, the researchers chemically induced liver cancer in rats and then examined the severity of the process of cancer development. When vitamin C or Aloe vera supplements were given to the cancer-induced rats, these previously increased biochemical indicators of cancer were suppressed. In particular, plasma levels of the enzyme gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase were found to be "reduced as early as 1 month with Aloe vera gel supplementation and 2 months with vitamin C supplementation."
There is mounting evidence that free radicals play an important role in the initiation and progression of cancer. A study completed by Desai et al.9 investigated the antioxidant activity of Roidex, a combination of squalene, vitamin E, and Aloe vera. The purpose of this study was to determine whether this formulation is able to prevent the development of chemically induced cancer and to cause regression of any tumors already formed in a mouse skin model. To study the cancer prevention ability of this mixture, skin tumors were chemically induce in 50 mice. The mice were treated with either ...   read more

Aloe Vera for Candida   18 y  
A study completed by Stuart et al.15 examined whether acemannan, prepared from aloe vera, could stimulate the immune system of mice. The immune response was measured in terms of percent phagocytosis and killing of Candida. The researchers found that there was a 45% increase in phagocytosis in the cells treated with acemannan and Candida compared to a 25% increase in the controls. And, the rates of Candida killing were 38% in macrophages exposed to acemannan for 10 minutes compared to 0-5% in untreated cells. When macrophages were exposed to acemannan for 60 minutes, 98% of the yeast were killed compared to 0-5% in the controls. These results suggest that acemannan, from Aloe vera, may have anti-fungal and immunostimulant properties.
STIMULATION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM To determine the antiviral activity present in some plant extracts, Sydiskis et al.16 tested extracts from Aloe barbadensis among other plants. The active components in these plants were identified as anthraquinones. Anthraquinones are compounds found in the sap of aloe and include aloe emodin and aloin. The researchers used a purified sample of aloe emodin prepared from aloin, and tested its effects on the infectivity of herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2, varicella-zoster virus, pseudorabies virus, influenza virus, adenovirus, and rhinovirus. The r ...   read more

Psoriasis:Aloe Vera Healed 25/30   18 y  
PSORIASIS Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease marked by scaly and inflammatory characteristics. Syed et al17. performed a double-blind study to evaluate the clinical efficacy and tolerability of topical Aloe vera extract (0.5%) skin cream. Sixty patients topically applied this medication 3 times daily, 5 consecutive days a week for a maximum of 4 weeks. Patients were examined on a weekly basis. The study was performed over 16 weeks with 12 months of follow-up on a monthly basis. The treatment was well tolerated by all the patients, with no adverse drug-related symptoms and no dropouts. By the end of the study, the Aloe vera extract cream had cured "25 out of 30 patients (83.3%) compared to the placebo cure rate of 2 out of 30 patients (6.6%)." Additionally, there was an 82.8% clearing of the psoriatic plaques in the Aloe vera treatment group compared to 7.7% in the placebo users.
The findings of this study suggest that topically applied Aloe vera extract 0.5% in a hydrophilic cream can be considered a safe and alternative treatment of patients suffering from the chronic skin disease psoriasis. Psoriasis: A complete Cure According to a double-blind study that enrolled 60 men and women with mild to moderate symptoms of psoriasis, Aloe vera cream may be helpful for this chronic skin condition.15 Participants were treated with either topical Aloe vera extract (0.5%) or a placebo cream, applied 3 ...   read more

Aloe Vera for Celiac Disease   18 y  
Recently, it has been found that in individuals who suffer from caeliac disease, which is associated with wheat sensitivity, that wheat protein contains a dietary antigen, alpha-gliaden, which can activate T-suppressor cell activity and reduce the body’s immunity. This may account for why celiac disease is often associated with the symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease. Improved digestion and management of these dietary protein antigens would facilitate an improved immunological status of the gut with reduced inflammatory activity. It has also been found that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that are commonly used to treat the symptoms of arthritis actually increase the permeability of the gut to antigens and may increase the antigen-antibody complex formation and increase the long-term progression of the disease. It is also known that alcohol abuse can also lead to a “leaky” gut with increasing risk of exposure to dietary antigens.
The function of Aloe vera juice in promoting, proper gastrointestinal function, based upon the information from this preliminary study, may be to regulate gastrointestinal pH while improving gastrointestinal motility, increasing stool specific gravity, and reducing populations of certain fecal micro-organisms, including yeast. This could have significant advantage to some individuals by promoting proper dietary protein digestion and absorption and reducing bowel putrifactive processes in the colon. This study sets the stage for a more detailed evaluation of the effect of Aloe vera jui ...   read more

Vitamin C Bioavaiability Increases w/ Aloe Vera Instead of Water by up to 300%   18 y  
While most of these conclusions are based on animal models, a recent human clinical study showed that both vitamin C and E bioavailability is increased by as much as 300% when taken with aloe instead of water. No other matrix is known to increase the bioavailability of both water and fat soluble vitamins. Importance of Biological Activity Scientists have determined that the retention of medium to higher weight polysaccharides enhance the biological activity found in Aloe Vera gel. Four specific scientific studies performed in recent years have demonstrated the remarkable health supportive qualities of concentrated Aloe Vera gel consumption. Dr. J.A. Vinson of the University of Scranton, PA, USA, presented his work demonstrating the increased bioavailability of vitamins C and E when taken in combination with Aloe vera. He performed a human clinical test with test subjects that were given doses of vitamin C or E with or without Alo

Yummy Aloe Vera Smoothies   18 y  
Yummy Aloe Smoothies Make Aloe Vera Easier To Take Each Day. A recent human clinical study showed that both vitamin C and E bioavailability is increased by as much as 300% when taken with aloe instead of water. No other matrix is known to increase the bioavailability of both water and fat soluble vitamins. Pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers or babies should not take aloe vera.
The best source of Aloe Vera is from the plant itself. Cut the tip, squeeze the gel out of the end and drink it. Anything purchased may not be as good as the straight stuff but several aloe-vera supplement providers say they have stabilized aloe vera and their product is as good as fresh aloe vera or better. Maybe that is true but I like the idea of using fresh off of the leaf aloe. Aloe Vera plants are the easiest plants to grow in the world and everyone should have some for burns and more. But until I get my aloe garden up to speed, I can get a gallon jug of aloe vera for $20 that will l ...   read more

Aloe Vera Minimizes Frostbite Damage   18 y  
If I had frostbite, I would investigate this study about aloe vera and if I was at risk of frostbite, I would keep some aloe vera cream with me.
Minimizes Frostbite Damage A study published in the Annals of Emergency Medicine established that aloe works for frostbite as well. Researchers gave standard treatments for frostbite (antibiotics, ibuprofen, and re-warming) to 154 patients with mild to severe frostbite. Of patients who additionally received aloe vera cream, 67.9% healed without any tissue loss (amputation) compared to 32.7% in the control group. Researchers concluded that aloe prevented a decrease of blood flow to the frozen tissues, a common cause of tissue loss in frostbite. ...   read more
