Aloe Vera Gel For Ulcerative Colitis?

Mar 19, 2015

I have recently started working in a salon and we sell the Aloe Vera range including a gel which is supposedly good for colitis? Has anyone tried it and seen improvement? I am on mesalamine oral tablets and mesalazine enemas - only been diagnosed a few weeks.

Ulcerative Colitis :: Thoughts On Aloe Vera Please?

I am 23 and was diagnosed with proctitis a month ago through a colonoscopy. I was prescribed 60 days worth of pentasa suppositories, and am halfway through my one a day dose. I don't seem to be making any improvement. Although my bleeding is somewhat better, I am definitely having more trouble with stomach cramps and needing to go more frequently. The pain arrives and is excruciating in seconds. If I can manage to let it pass, sometimes I need to go urgently again in a few minutes or I can be ok for a few hours. 

Anyway the reason for my post is because I would like to know if anyone else has been prescribed the pentasa suppositories and how you found them? Should I persevere with them? 

I also visited my local Holland & Barrett health store today and they advised me to buy an Aloe Vera gel/juice and to take 1 tbl spoon of this 3 times a day.. Does anyone have any advice or experience to share on this type of aloe Vera product?

Polymyalgia Rheumatica And Aloe Vera Juice Benefits

I was diagnosed last year with PMR and at moment have managed to get down to 7mg of pred, but I also have to take two calcium tablets daily and 1 x alendronic(?) acid tablet on a sunday, the one where you have to sit up straight for an hour, I experience usually about Tuesday a bad tummy but the dr says that is probably the alendronic acid

I have been in so much pain when walking that my doctor advised for me to go for an MRI scan, which is showing wear and tear on my spine and problems with my sciatic nerve, which is probably causing the pain when walking - I can only walk for approx. 5 mins(sometimes not even that) and the pain is so bad I find it hard to lift my feet one in front of the other and I get breathless - surely at 56 I should be fitter than that. I also find that going upstairs can cause the burning sensation in my leg and I have to sit down for a few moments until it eases As for housework well....................... I really enjoy cleaning my house ( probably because it is such a change from when I am at work sitting at my desk all day) but I find after about 10 - 15 mins I have to sit for a few moments and then carry on if I can it is so frustrating. My doctor after the results of the scan has now put me on Co Codamol and I have to take 2 x 15mg tablets four times a day. I only started them yesterday and cant say there has been any difference yet in my pain.

I have also got the "hamster" face from taking the pred and have put on a lot weight around my stomach area, my doctor has now told me I have to go on a very low carb diet. He advises porridge in the morning and then for the rest of the day just either salad, fish, lean chicken and veg. I am to have no extra milk(he says I will get enough calcium from the tablets) and no bread, potatoes, pasta(don't like it anyway!) or rice.

I have my breakfast at 5.00am every morning so by 9.00am I am starving and then it just gets worse throughout the day - although oddly enough this morning I had porridge instead of my usual two slices of toast and so far I am not terribly hungry.

A friend of mine says she drinks between 60ml and 120ml of aloe vera juice every day and she feels great - she hasn't got PMR or any illness for that matter but she says the juice helps with her weight loss and is entirely natural so shouldn't do me any harm. She also says it helps with inflammation.

Has anyone else experienced this juice that has had PMR and was there any benefits to it?

GERD (acid Reflux) :: Aloe Vera Juice Bad?

I have ulcers, GERD, LPR and a large hiatus hernia. I just read this quote on a website and was wondering does this mean aloe vera juice is NOT good for LPR since pepsin is a cause of LPR? I've started the aloe vera juice thanks to reading about it on this message board and my stomach feels much better but now I'm wondering if it will make my LPR worse.....

a 1963 issue of the "Journal of the American Osteopathic Society" reported that aloe's effectiveness as an ulcer-healer may be attributed to its ability to stimulate the release of pepsin, a gastric juice enzyme that supports the digestive system.
