Using Aloe juice to help promote healing in mouth

I am in my second week of treatment and was trying aloe juice to help promote healing in my mouth from the radiation.  Has anyone else tried this and what experience did you have?  i just swish some around my mouth and swallow, then do not drink anything for a while.  Thanks and this is a great forum with lots of good info and people!

    Just a caution

    Don't do it prior to your scheduled radiation appointment as it can reflect/change radiation properties. Don't see where it will hurt anything afterwards. Welcome to the Board.

    I used L-glutamine powder....

    to help my mouth.  It is an amino acid, and when even plain water hurt, the L-glutamine did not.  It can be found at the health food store.
