Please, anybody out there had any success with aloe vera? It does not have to be specifically related to bleeding ulcer.  All I can get are the capsules, think they're 25 mg.  Any advice on how many to take and when to take them?  Thanks, best wishes

Joan,

Speaking of aloe vera...I have a spectacular aloe vera plant that grows indoors.  It has been nothing less than a miracle healer when placed on fresh burns.  I would very much like to ingest some - taking just the inside pulp, because I have heard that the part near the surface is what gives you diarrhea.  However, I have read that it is "dangerous" to eat aloe vera.  Does anyone have any experience with eating fresh aloe?

Be careful about the amount you take of the capsules. I bought a particular brand on line (exxxxxpensive) and all they did to me is make me constipated. I ended up not using them and throwing them away. What a waste of money..

Thanks skooby....I spoke with my pharmacist and she told me not to try them. Even the health food store lady told me "you don't want to fuel with an bleeding ulcer". At the health food store in my hometown (Brooklyn, New York!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), they had drinkable aloe vera. But don't expect to run into this here in upstate New York. I would steer clear of the plant if you don't know exactly what you are doing Lonibel. Take care of yourselves everybody.

Yes, they do have drinkable aloe vera in upstate New York if you can get to a Wegman's. It's on the shelf, in a brown bottle in the health food section. They also have a different brand at Walmart. I started with 2 oz (1/4 cup) the first day and added to it until I reached a total daily intake of 8 oz (1 cup), drinking it in several portions throughout the day, between meals and before I went to bed. I did this for two weeks with no noticeable positive or negative effect - will go back and try it again.

Hi

Have any of you guys heard of active manuka honey, i have just started taking it its completely natural, google it and see what you get. I am a nurse and we have just started after all these years to use honey again in the treatment of burns and leg ulcers etc,it claims to be suitable for use in GERD and ulcers, lots of companies produce it, so i am giving it a try.

Nell,

A friend who is Mexican healed his eye with honey. I guess I got away from honey when I tried the carbohydrate diet... How are you taking the manuka honey? I am going to try local organic honey in the same quantity and let's compare, okay? Keep us posted with the results of your trial.

Hi, I'm giving up on the aloe vera unless I run into it. It's kinda funny like a freudian typo...fuel instead of fool around...with a bleeding ulcer. I've been using regular honey forever on my organic peanut butter on whole wheat bread and I think the world of honey. You don't have to pay alot for it. The thing is where it is grown. Some are red (grown near volancic ash), etc. I believe I read about green honey too. But I use regular honey regularly. Take care everybody!
