REGARDING ALOE VERA:
For those of you ingesting aloe vera gel or juice....be sure to use the inner fillet, not the whole leaf. The outer leaf has no notable benefits, at the very least, and has been found to be unfit for consumption and even carcinogenic if not filtered properly.
The products usually noted as beneficial for both relieving and curing reflux, GERD, leaky gut, etc. actually make mine worse. I have one of the longest-term, extreme cases that I personally have ever known of and my doctors, as well. They are clueless, of course, and offer NO HELP. ACV, ginger, mint, betain hcl, etc. all exacerbate symptoms immediately and intensely. Very much a bummer. The only thing that works at all is baking soda. But of course I have to be careful about how much I take of that, because too much can be harmful and cause various issues. The leaky gut I deal with happens throughout the day, even when I don't eat!! Although notably worse at night, obviously because I am laying down. Anyway. While I am certainly interested in safe products to take to relieve symptoms, I am mainly interested in getting rid of it!! Lol. It has been 13 years and is quite extreme, as I mentioned. It has taken over my life and is rotting the inside of my body. I am going to stock up on organic aloe vera inner fillet juice, get a stronger PROBIOTIC (which has noticeably helped in the past) and I am going to save up for a series of super high-does vitamin C (w/glutathione, zinc and b-complex) IVs. They are about $300 a pop for like 75,000mg with the glutathione added. Since the leaky gut essentially causes back up of toxins which shuts down your eliminatory (and other) organs/systems and pollutes your blood and creates a purely inflammatory acidic environment, etc.. I have utter faith in these IVs. It indicates to me intuitively. I cannot wait until this crap is out of my being and my body is cleaned out and I can get rid of the malfunctions. And all I need is about $4000. Lol. Cheers everyone! Be well xx
