Aloe Lotion (Definition)

Aloe gel, made from the central part of the aloe leaf, is a common household remedy for minor cuts and burns, as well as sunburns. It can be found in many commercial skin lotions and cosmetics. Aloe contains active compounds that may decrease pain and inflammation and stimulate skin growth and repair. For this reason, aloe vera gel has gained tremendous popularity for relief of burns, with individual success in helping minor burns. In one study, burn sites treated with aloe healed completely in less than 16 days compared to 19 days for sites treated with silver sulfadiazine. In a review of the scientific literature, researchers found that patients who were treated with aloe vera healed an average of almost 9 days sooner than those who weren't treated with the medicinal plant. However, other studies show mixed results, including at least one study that found aloe actually delayed healing. Aloe is best used for minor burns and skin irritations, and should never be applied ...Read more

Is organic aloe Vera juice safe for constipation?

Is organic aloe Vera juice safe for constipation?

Yes: As Dr. Rudnick states, it's wise to find and treat the cause, but for now Aloe juice is very safe and has many benefits (http://tinyurl.com/o6eh7dw). However, it's not particuarly effective for constipation. The rind of the plant is a strong laxative but generally the rind isn't juiced. You can use rind extracts occ. as a laxative.

Which brand of aloe vera juice tastes best?

Which brand of aloe vera juice tastes best?

Don't base on taste!: In choosing aloe vera juice i believe taste is much less important than which is most beneficial- do you want a good tasting brand that is ineffective? And different people may have different ideas on which tastes best- it's a bit like asking which wine tastes best! there are many brands, each claiming to be the best. In my comment are links to help you choose quality brands. Taste them yourself! ...Read more

Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Possibly: No one does research giving herbs during pregnancy so we don't know for sure. It seems safe to use in cooking but taking medicinal amounts may cause bleeding or stimulate uterine contractions. I advise caution with all herbs in the first trimester. It is probably safest in the final weeks of pregnancy. See http://bit.Ly/16ma7p2 ; http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/662.Html. ...Read more

This can lead to abscess, perforation, fistula formation, bleeding. Treatment is antibiotics (surgery if recurrent). Aloe vera is pretty useless here. ...Read more

Is topically using coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil & aloe vera gel (as homemade lash/brow serum) safe to use during pregnancy?

Pregnancy-safe oils: Castor oil and sweet almond oil may bring on early labor, if used earlier than term. Coconut oil and olive oil are safe in pregnancy. Topical vitamin E oil is felt to be safe, but may cause contact dermatitis in some people, as can topical aloe vera. "When in doubt, leave it out" applies in pregnancy. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20306538 ...Read more

No: It won't hurt but will not help. Diverticulitis is an infection around a diverticula and needs to be treated with antibiotics. If they do not resolve the infection, then surgery is required. To reduce the formation of diverticula and possibly prevent diverticulitis, dietary fiber is needed. The simplest way to get enough fiber is to take metamucil or an equivalent daily. ...Read more
