Remember when Ulcers and acid reflux were thought of as chronic conditions? They were treated with antacids and acid blockers for years and years. Now we use antibiotics and eliminate the germs called helicobacter pylori (h. pylori) and the ulcers heal themselves. Next will we be using aloe vera to heal the G.I. tract and achieve the same result? The evidence is so far anecdotal but seems very compelling. Aloe ingested is very soothing to the gastrointestinal tract.
