Biomega aloe vera?

Has anyone heard of biomega aloe vera juice? I have heard of only one person taking this and now they are not on any meds for over a year now. Has anyone had any improvements with aloe vera in general?

Headed back to the doctor tomorrow due to meds are going nowhere. Well I am going somewhere but the wrong way. If I did not know any better, I would swear I had appendicitis.

Aloe Vera juice products (AMP included) which are ingested are also to be black listed. It can cause abdominal cramping, diarrhea, can decrease the absorption of certain medications, and has also been linked to causing acute hepatitis.

Thank you for that info. My brother and his wife are health nuts. His wife has a grandmother we call the witch doctor. I have never been able to take vitamin or anything along those lines due to tummy problems and pills. Thinking was aloe was a liquid and alot cheaper than humira or surgery.

I am not saying all alternative methods are bad, but they definitely need to be researched heavily before you consider any of them because it can be dangerous. Alternative methods, in my opinion are good in conjunction with what your doctor prescribes and should be closely monitored by your doctor.

I just hate to ask the doctor about this due to he is a doctor and more of the "medicine man". Thanks for the web links. Will be doing research most of the night, thanks to the prednisone.
