Aloe promotes gut healing in the same way the gel can help heal cuts and burns when applied topically.

be wary... its really expensive and it didnt work for me. but in saying that, others have had it work for them... so just buy like one bottle at a time to try it out and see if it works for you rather than spending a fortune and wasting it (as in my case)
good luck with it!

vitamin D3 x1 a day
tumeric capsules - if i remember to take the bloody things.
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all :(

my dr. still wants to see the info, but i did order it. I've spent so much money on everything for this disease in the hopes that it would work. What's another $100 right :)

Aloe can also be a severe laxative and worsen UC... another one of those hit and miss things you have to be careful with, so start with a tiny dose if you try it.
