I have had an Aloe Vera plant for years but I’ve only ever used it for sunburns and scrapes. I had no idea how many other things the plant could treat and I was pretty surprised! I love finding natural solutions in place of pills and chemicals so I was excited to check out the e-book Aloe: Your Curso De Milagros Doctor by Yulia Berry.
I ordered the book because I wanted to learn more about how to use the plant but what was cool was that the book even outlines the history of the plant. To be honest, I never even thought about the history before but it was actually really interesting. I don’t want to give too much away (I hate when people do that with books and movies), but use of the Aloe Vera plant goes way back when it was used by Ancient Egyptians and Sumerians. The book also discusses how pharmaceutical companies don’t want the public to know about the healing benefits of Aloe Vera because they of course want the $$$ from prescription pills and lotions. Not a big surprise to me at all!
Aloe Vera has always worked great for my sunburns and scrapes but who knew that you could actually use the gel in the plant for things like nausea, constipation, diabetes, arthritis, menstrual cramps, acne and so much more… 80 ailments! So, right now I am testing the plant on a scar that I got from a curling iron and bruise on my leg that honestly I have no idea how I got! I gave some of the plant to my friends to test it out on some of the issues they’re dealing with so I’ll have to give you an update when we conclude our experiments. Scientists…not so much but we are able to read directions and tell if something feels better. Lol! But for now… it is a smooth read and I have to believe that it really works on a lot of the problems listed in the book. By the way… it also tells you how to take care of your plant so if you’re worried about killing it, the book prepares you. It’s not that hard either, the plant is really resilient. I haven’t had to do very much with mine at all!
