Aloe Vera: a plant that is not ordinary but Very Special!
Over 2000 years ago, Hippocrates, the Greek ‘father of medicine’ said, ‘Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food’
It’s a plant. It’s thick, green and prickly and it’s full of gel that is bursting with over two hundred different nutrients. For millions of people of all ages, who suffer from a range of internal and external disorders, from conditions like angina, arthritis, asthma, constipation, diabetes, hiatus hernia, ulcers, lupus and M.E., or stomach, digestive, bowel (e.g. IBS) and colon disorders to skin problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis or sunburn, rashes (including nappy rash) and insect bites or for those who simply want a natural, biologically active health tonic (to help boost their immune systems and energy levels) or want to look and feel good, Aloe Vera is proving to be a ‘miraculous’ 21st Century saviour.
Extolling the ‘amazing’ healing, health giving and beauty properties of this cactus-like plant that flourishes in hot fertile regions and is in fact a member of the aloaceae family (it’s related to the liliacea family that includes both the garlic and onion plants, both of which have proven health benefits) may seem far fetched to many people. But this site has no doubts about the plant’s wide reaching benefits and the positive impact high quality Aloe Vera can have on people’s overall health, looks and general well-being when taken orally and/or applied topically.
