There's exactly zero evidence to support the idea that consumption of aloe-vera products orally with provide any relief to patients of ulcerative colitis. Don't waste your time, money, energy, or hope on such trivial pursuits. The idea that vitamin-e rich products will somehow alleviate inflammation in the large bowel makes no sense, whatsoever, and ha has no support via research.
My doctor said the same thing when I told him about probiotics and using powdered psyllium seed as my soluble fiber. And he reiterated how diet has nothing to do with IBD. I am glad I did not listen to him because that is how I maintain remission. I haven't used any meds with their toxic side effects in almost a year.
And I am not the only one. The forum is full of stories of symptoms being relieved by alternative treatments. We welcome sharing your experiences with us but please do not dictate how or what we experience or see for ourselves.
