Often called the ‘Miracle Plant’ or the ‘Natural Healer’, Aloe Vera is a plant of many surprises. It flourishes in warm and dry climates, and many people mistake it for a cactus, but, in fact, it is a member of the lily family. It stays moist where other plants wilt and die, closing its pores to prevent the loss of moisture.
There are over 200 varieties of Aloe’s but it is the Aloe Barbadensis Miller (Aloe Vera) plant which has been of most use to mankind because of its medicinal properties. Ancient records show that the benefits of Aloe Vera have been known for centuries. Its therapeutic advantages and healing properties have survived more than 5000 years.
Aloe Vera is a succulent. When the plant is mature at 4 or 5 years old the contents of its leaves – a reservoir of sap and gel can be harvested, preserved and bottled as a nutritional drink, or combined with other ingredients to produce topical lotions and creams to nourish and improve the skin.
Aloe Vera in drink form works with the ‘inner doctor’ - our Immune system, replenishing nutrients including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes - at least 75 known beneficial components are in the gel which can help us all improve our everyday health and well being.
All that mankind needs for good health and healing is provided in nature… the challenge to science is to find it.
- Paracelsus, the father of pharmacology
O love what hours were thine and mine,
in lands of palm and southern pine,
in lands of palm, of orange blossom,
of olive, aloe and maize and wine.
- Tennyson, ‘The Daisy’
It is my firmly held belief that with an adequate intake of micro-nutrients – essential substances we need to nourish us – most chronic diseases would not exist. Good nutritional therapy is the medicine of the future. We have already waited too long for it.
- Dr Carl Pfeiffer
Four vegetables are indispensable for the well being of man: Wheat, the grape, the olive and aloe. The first nourishes him,
The second raises his spirit,
The third brings him harmony,
and the fourth cures him.
- Christopher Columbus (1451-1506)
Nature is doing her best each moment to make us well. She exists for no other end. Do not resist. With the least inclination to be well, we should not be sick.
- Henry David Thoreau
