Yes to both.

I can't say that the absorb plus was beneficial to me because I never got the opportunity to use it (still in my cabinet). My health declined fairly quickly about the same time I discovered the remission diet and I ended up in the hospital. The good news is that I was able to get back on my feet in short order and have been doing well since. I attribute much of my success at maintaining remission to following the advice of Patel Thompson - primarily via diet and supplements, especially the use of probiotics.

In addition, I also discovered real (raw) milk. It is effectively an alternative to absorb plus in that it is a complete food. Where I live, real milk is also quite inexpensive. Plus I love the taste. Can't imagine life without it now.

I continue to use George's on a regular basis. I do think it has been beneficial. Although I would hope that there is a comparable option for you in the UK. It seems a shame to have to order products from abroad.

I drink the aloe juice. I started a few weeks ago, and I think it's doing something. I've been in some sort of remission for a few months now, and only occasional bleeding.

I like George's because it has NO taste or after taste which is great. I take a shot in the morning, and then a shot before dinner. I usually wait about 10-20 minutes to eat after drinking it.

Oh, I should add that I was diagnosed with a rough case of gastritis last summer that had me doubled over in pain all the time. I was put on omeprazole and I took that until I felt better. I finished the last bottle of that and didn't reorder... The gastritis came back recently which dragged me out to the health foods store to buy George's. My stomach feels soooo much better.
