  • Well you get yourself a bottle and see what happens.

    It seems like gps are offering the 'complimentary' medicines as alternatives today, as mine has for something unrelated, so maybe they are realising its not all hocus pocus afterall.

  • I think you could have a point there lisa.i.am going to get some and try it.i will let you know how it goes.good luck to yourself too.

  • Hope it works for you, lets face it, it cant be any worse than a load of synthetic tablets.

  • I couldnt agree with you more to lisa.

  • Hi Torchy,

    I bought a bottle of Aloe Vera a few weeks ago, it's still unopened. I've tried many things none of which have made much difference. I think we sometimes try too many new things & we don't give our body enough time to change. We try it for a couple of days & think "it's not working" & stop. The trouble is there is not enough testing on all these different (often expensive) products so you don't know if you should just keep trying or just not buy the stuff in the first place!

    My physiotherapist suggested a properly qualified Medical Herbalist. I'm going back to my GP next week if she's not going to do anything I'm going to give the herbalist a try. I did ask the question if anyone had tried a herbalist on here but as yet nobody has replied to say they have.

    Sometimes I think the best "medicine" is having someone to talk to. This website is a great help as usually someone is listening. :)

  • Hi Mc89.i totally agree with you.i think also we sometimes get desperate for anything to help us.ive never tried a herbalist so i dont know much about that one.lets hope one day soon we will be listened to by the medical profession.yes this forum is good and helpful and all the people are so very nice.we all need someone to understand us dont we ? but im afraid some of us dont always get it,thats why these forums are good.best wishes and i hope you find out more about the herbal things.

  • Hi torchy its me! Hope all good. I've heard great things about aloe Vera. My friends ex had Crohn's disease and used good pure aloe Vera everyday. They split up (not because of aloe Vera!!!) and to this day even tho she doesn't have Crohn's (it was her ex gf) my friend still takes it for her healthy bowel as she calls it. Hope this helps.

  • Hi will.its lovely to hear from you my friend.i hope you are keeping as well as you can.ive bin feeling low for a few days now.i think everything is getting me down.my sister should have her op tomorrow and thats on my mind to.i hope to goodness they dont find anymore cancer.thank you for the bit about aloe vera.i hope to hear from you soon.i would like to keep in touch with you.take care will.xxx
