Aloe Vera: Amazing internal and external benefits.

Aloe Vera: Amazing internal and external benefits.
The gel from the leaves of this desert plant is invaluable. It is best used freshly picked from a plant. Keep several plants growing; you cannot have enough! Because of its nauseating taste, when used as a purgative it is generally taken in powder or pill form. It also tends to gripe and cause a constipative reaction, so that it should be combined with a carminative herb (as peppermint) for best results.

Benefits in treating health problems
1. The gel inside the leaves has the capacity to heal even the most severe burns (including sunburns) and irritated skin rashes. When applied to the skin for severe burns and skin rashes, it can be left on for two days without changing the application. The FDA first approved Aloe vera ointment as an over-the-counter medication for skin burns back in 1959.

2. It can be used for insect bites and stings, poison oak and ivy, “detergent hands,” acne and itchy skin. The fresh leaves of the aloe can be split to expose the gelatinous juice and then rubbed onto the skin. Applying Aloe vera to the affected area appears to accelerate the healing.

3. It is used for abscesses, infections in wounds, skin irritations and ulcers. It is said to help heal wounds by preventing or drawing out infection. As a first-aid remedy for burns and surface irritations, break off a leaf and squeeze the gel onto the affected area. A tea made from the dried juice makes a good wash for wounds and the eyes.

4. The aloe is good for chronic constipation, gastritis, hyperacidity, and stomach ulcers. It is a laxative and regulator of the bowels. Because, when used alone, it might cause griping (bowel cramping), it is best combined with ginger root powder and fill ‘’00” gelatin capsules. Take 2 capsules, 3 times day.

5. It increases blood vessel generation in the lower extremities of those with poor circulation when taken in small quantities at regular intervals.

6. It is also helpful for eliminating AIDS. Aloe vera is a popular medicinal plant that is used in the pharmaceutical industries. Its leaves are full of a gel-like substance that contains numerous beneficial compounds.

7. Another way to treat gastro-intestinal ulcers is to take the bitter aloe gel in small quantities at regular intervals (totaling a pint a day for ulcers), along with a tea of ginger and licorice root, to help prevent any adverse reactions to the bitter taste.

Conclusion: Aloe plants are readily obtained and grow well in the home. You only need to water once a week. Place them in a south window. There are several other aloe plants, but aloe Vera is the best for medicinal purposes.
