Why...?: Aloe is used in folk medicine for worm infestation, stomach disorders, colic, constipation, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, menstrual complaints, skin disorders. However, aloe is contraindicated in cases of intestinal obstruction, inflammatory bowel disease, appendicitis, & unexplained abdominal pain. If you have gerd use appropriate rx & diet, but if you question your "diagnosis" see your doctor.
