Aloe was a complete surprise, immune stimulant and cancer killer + anti viral.

A Priest has a special formula from Brazil, Google it.

"The percentage of both objective tumor regressions and disease control was significantly higher in patients concomitantly treated with Aloe than with chemotherapy alone, as well as the percent of 3-year survival patients"

Here is a link: http://www.aloeterapia.com/en/en_recipe_aloe_arborescens_juice.htm

It explains how to prepare and how to use and store the juice.

And they state that the test was flawed because the testers KNEW who had the aloe and chemo, or who had just the chemo alone.  The test showed 67% shrunk tumors of the aloe and chemo vs. 50% shrunk in chemo alone.  The reason you have to be careful is they suggest a longer study, a BLIND study, etc., that wasn't done with this test (done in 2009)had severe metastatic cancer patients only, so do not know if this helps with stage III or less.

Mostly be careful with it if you choose to do it.  Aloe is a WONDERFUL LAXATIVE, and for people such as myself on Irinotecan with the diarrhea this isn't recommended as the diarrhea will become much worse on aloe.

Also be careful of injections of aloe, has caused deaths and the injections are outlawed in the US.

Always let your oncologist know what you are doing concerning alternative treatments to be on the safe side!!

This is an interesting read on it from the UK: http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/cancer-help/about-cancer/treatment/complementary-alternative/therapies/aloe-vera

It was a "preliminary clinical investigation" as stated by the authors. The next step would be a double blind, if someone funds it. No investigation 'starts' as a double blind.

If your on Irinotecan read this; http://csn.cancer.org/node/252508  (also not a double blind so don't bother if that is an issue for you)

Flawed is the word that the reviewers used, so you can say it isn't, which is fine, not true, but okey dokey, see things your way, I'll just believe the authors of this publication more then you, because, well, they are professionals. Not getting in an arguement with a novice over professionals. Just warning people, that not all is perfect and to research and check with their oncologist before using.

 No matter how hard I try I cannot find the word 'FLAWED' being used by anybody accept you, maybe post a link!

here is the 'review' text copied and pasted exactly;

"One study in Italy of 240 patients reported in 2009. It tested aloe vera alongside chemotherapy for people with metastatic lung cancer, bowel cancer, and stomach cancer. Half the patients took aloe arborescens as a liquid 3 times a day during standard chemotherapy treatment. In this study the cancer was controlled or shrank for a time in 67% of patients who had the combined aloe and chemotherapy treatment and in 50% of patients who had chemotherapy alone. In this study the researchers said that patients taking the aloe vera had a better quality of life and that they had fewer chemotherapy side effects such as numb fingers and fatigue. 

The researchers also said that there were no ill effects from the aloe vera. More patients who had the aloe vera survived for 3 years than patients who just had chemotherapy. Although this research seems positive the researchers said that there are some concerns about the study. The researchers knew which patients were receiving aloe vera and they may have influenced the results. The study also involved patients who were quite ill with metastatic cancer. It is not clear how well aloe vera would work in patients with earlier stage cancer. The researchers recommend that further research is done to confirm or disprove these findings."

All they mention is further research, which is the standard response after a preliminary investigation that showed some positive results.

Im sure the adults on here can make up there own minds about using this or not.

For first article,if you click on whats typed and then go to 2013, as of now, item is first article listed (rather interesting as it does deal with CRC)

This is another Mango Juice on the scalp recipe. I just posted a working link for the juice.  

There was recently a post on preventing cancer and once you have cancer treatments are different. It is kind oof like finding an elephant in a strawberry field.  Do Elephants just hide really well in straberry fields?  or are they just not there?

It is important to keep an open mind. There are 796 Chinese Medicinal Herbs. Many have been found effective at treating various diseases. The western idea is the herbs are of varrying potency year to year, and strengths of teas varry from mixing to mixing.  Does this mean the Chinese Practitioners have it wrong?  or does it mean that varrying strengths of meds work?  There are studies that have found that aspirin in varrying levels works, versus always taking the same strength.

Best Always, mike

PS I think we need to keep open minds and realize that no one has solved the cancer disease.  At the same time realize what can hurt us.
