  1. Hello Dr. Greger. Would you know how is Aloe Vera affecting the immune system in general? When ingested of course.

  2. What about high-quality hemp oil? I've been curing and treating many symptoms with it for almost 6 months now and it's working excellent. Including moles that I've had spread through my body or spider through my body from head to toe it seems to disintegrate them under the skin at the mole.

  3. I usually use aloe topically, but I've tried blending some in smoothies in the past, guess that wasn't a good idea…

  4. First of all, ingested aloe vera should be from the barbadensis miller variety. Second, the aloin and aloe-emodin (the yellow colored slime) should be removed. This can be done with the fresh leaf by first filleting the leaf and then rinsing the gel in a bowl of fresh water a couple of times. I've heard that whole leaf, cold pressed aloe vera juice (with the aloin and aloe-emodin removed) can help reverse liver cancer so this makes no sense.

  5. what about brominated flours? I hear they interfere with iodine intake as well as being generally bad for our health

  6. What is a reliable brand that really contains aloe? As you recall some products have been found to contain nothing.

  7. Oh my word! I am rejoicing. I have just posted this on all my lichen planus support groups and on my way (with tears of hope) to purchase aloe Vera gel

  8. Even though I'm not aware of any studies on Aloe Vera as treatment for atopic dermatitis, it it wise to try anyway? Better safe than sound?

  9. I have this for almost 1 year now. It sucks ! Mostly on my ankles and foot. It was all over my body but has faded. Doc wanted me to have steroid cream but I have refused. This is the best news and hope for my condition I've had yet. I'm starting this treatment now

  10. Another valuable lesson any time a doctor suggests circumcision to treat lichen planus of the foreskin (since that always seems to be the number one suggested treatment for it), try out the aloe gel first. Your penis will thank you I'm sure.

  11. Noooooooooooeees

    I acually drink alovera to get my cellwalls thicker and ease my hay fever
    … Being healthy just got to another level, need to rethink this

  12. Damn. And I just bought a huge aloe leaf to try and juice πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ Perfect timing.
    AMAZING ON THE SKIN THOUGH!! Overnight ..πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ heals like nothing else. πŸ‘Ή

  13. I absolutely love your videos! Could you do one on a plant based diet and mental health? Can a plant based diet reverse disorders such as OCD? We always hear about the great effects on our physical health but what about our mental? Is there a cure? Thank you!

  14. Is the hepatitis like reaction only in people with lichen planus? Would the same effects happen on someone without the disease?

  15. Lol. I ate a whole large 1 meter tall ( barbadensis miller) aloe plant in a smoothie a few years ago. I ate the whole plant mixed with fruits and veggies ower 2 days. It felt pretty soothing and good. I dont think it is toxic, but powerful medicine

  16. what does "double-blind" mean? they "blindly" give one group the aloe gel and the other group a placebo gel, so that neither the groups nor the researchers know which got which, right? then they monitor the groups' health, but then do they "unblind" the experiment at that point? otherwise, how do they know if a group is getting better even though they had placebo, for example?

  17. I was taking medicine for acid reflux and by drinking 2oz Aloe Vera gel for 2 months everyday I was able to get rid of my acid reflex prescription, work for me.

  18. you should seriously plug the book "dumping Iron" as it supports Vegan propaganda pretty well. Its NOT a pro-vegan book per se, But stresses caloric restriction, iron-chelation & blood donation. The iron issue seems to me the most critically overlooked issue in all of health at the moment. After a Mercola article 10+ years ago I started donating and Ive noticed everytime that my waistline gets thinner almost immediately- i mean within an hour or two. Blood-letting has some kind of hormonal effect that i do not understand but can see clearly. Also it confers a type of mental clarity that mimics fasting.

  19. Interesting…I immediately thought of Snails with the mention of Hepatitis. Snails carry Hep and often live on, eat, or travel over Aloe Vera plants. I wonder if the Aloe Vera used was lab grown or sourced?

  20. I can't believe that nobody here, including Dr. Greger, knows that you always capitalize the genus and never capitalize the species. It's Aloe vera and not Aloe Vera or aloe vera. You learn this in your first science course which is usually Biology in high school or college. Being a pre-med major in college, I never saw serious science majors make that mistake. Dr. Greger is a role model. It looks like everybody is just copying his mistake or maybe they just don't know or don't care. For those of you who think this is no big deal, I try not to make up my own rules as I go along. I like following the rules. Life is a learning process.

  21. Man one week something is a superfood the next, a toxin. What about all these raw foodists recommending aloe smoothies and such

  22. All my lichen planus marks disappeared and never had any recurrence again after i stopped eating flour based products for about six months, also eating keto for most of that period.

    No localized treatment for the symptoms of an auto immune disease will cure the base problem.
    But hey, carb the fuck up and save the baby cows.. right? Even at the expense of having a leaky gut..

  23. without cortisol, would we fear pain? do we fear pain cuz it causes stress? wud there b no stress without cortisol? is there a hormonal way to stop fearing pain?

  24. Hopefully it's still ok to put on skin? I found that the gel mixed with a little water makes a really good clear shaving gel. Being clear it's ideal for using to clean up the edges of a beard – you can see what you're doing, so I like it a lot.

  25. Wow, I'm glad I dodged that one. My botanical sense seems to be getting stronger the cleaner my diet becomes.

  26. But what about Aloe Vera Juice??? This is being sold in many health food stores???? Could this be healthy?

  27. Corticosteroids DID NOT WORK for me AT ALL!! My lesions didn't go away until I moved to a 90% unprocessed plant based diet. I was covered in sores – it was horrible. None of the meds worked. Even on my vegan diet, I still didn't get relief. It was only when I went UNPROCESSED. I do still eat processed foods like single ingredient gluten free pasta, store bought hummus, homemade cashew cream, etc.

  29. I went on a full steroid mouthwash for my OLP, it did jack shit, although aloe gel on my lips have completely cleared it. I now drink inner leaf aloe vera plus taking purslane 500mg caps based on DrGregers studies so hopefully I can get rid of it. Ill keep you all posted in a couple of months.
