Gastroenterology/Gastric Reflux


I recently saw an ad in the paper about an aloe vera solution for treaing gastr2ttic reflux disease. Is there any pros or cons for drinking aloe vera juice for gastric reflux or nutriontal health in general?

Hi Ralph

Sorry to say, but I do not have experience with what you called “an aloe vera solution.” Aloe vera has a thousand of the years of using in various conditions, especially, digestive problems. I use real aloe juice; I put actual leaves of the aloe vera in the refrigerator for one week. Then, I make a juice. One teaspoon mixed with the real (non-processed) honey, is a valuable remedy for digestive disorders.

Gastric reflux has a many causes. It can be acid reflux, bile reflux, hiatal hernia, alcohol consumption, some medications, etc.
I like that you are looking for natural way for your reflux. You can find lots of information regarding non-drug healing of GERD in my EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You." Look content. I also open for phone consultation for the customs solution of your problem.

I wish you health.

I can answer all questions about digestive health, especially in focus on the non-drug, non-surgery treatment. It includes healing diet, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, healing mineral water, abdominal massage, and cleansing techniques. All these practices are widely used by gastroenterologists all over the world.
