Aloe Flu Remedy

June 24, 2015: Sharon from Tampa, Florida writes Earth Clinic:

When l lived in Puerto Rico, l learned of a local cure for “La Monga” a sickness that would hit with fever, pain, flu-like symptoms.

They would take a whole medium aloe leaf (about 6-8 inches) and puree it with a cup of their favorite juice (pineapple or sweet citrus offsets the bitterness of aloe.

Drink it immediately, and by the next day, a miracle.

Many groceries now sell giant aloe leaf in the produce section for a dollar or two and it can be refrigerated. Makes about 5 or six doses due to the size.
