A friend of mine who works in alternative health told me that aloe Vera juice will heal a leaky gut. There seems to be contradictory information on the web about this. Has anyone used aloe Vera juice?

I've tried the juice in the past and didn't notice any health benefits.  Be aware that it has a laxative effect.  I do use aloe vera, the plant, in my backyard for cuts and burns. it works great, but it's a little smelly and messy.

I inquired of my Osteopathic/Functional Medicine doctor whether I should try aloe vera for my son's intestinal damage.  He said it was too astringent.

 

For myself I have decided to take a small amount.  It has helped me heal so many ailments.  I decided that I would be able to tell if it were too astringent for me.  I haven't had any noticeable problem, but have only taken it a couple of times.

Yes it should help soothe and heal the inner lining of your gut because those are practically the same type of cells that skin is made of. Aloe vera is good for healing internally and externally. I drank a lot of aloe vera juice when first dx'd. If you don't like the taste you can always hide it in a fruit smoothie or something.

I read about Aloe Vera juice but was afraid because of the laxative effect .... Have any of you noticed that things improve? A friend of mine takes it but she is not Celiac. She does have other disorders. She said I should take it. But I am afraid. Maby once I am Gluten Free for a while???
