I just wanted to share a recent recipe video I made for an orange pineapple aloe juice.
Have you tried aloe before? It has a long list of amazing qualities! One interesting quality is it is one of the rare vegan dietary sources of B-12! I hope you enjoy my video! Let me know what you think!
See the recipe here:
Raw aloe juice is good stuff.
looks so yummy I am going to make this!
Aloe is a forbidden thing here.
The many pernicious plants and herbs touted as healthful because of their toxin content, not their food content, are onions, garlic, comfrey, aloe, cayenne peppers, mints and innumerable others. In seeking health, many concerned individuals end up further polluting their bodies, thus creating more disease.
Aloe vera is a cactus that grows outdoors in tropical and subtropical climates and indoors everywhere else. When you break open one of its leaves, you see a thick, clear liquid ooze out.It is this liquid that is claimed to be a "cure" for burns, ulcers, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, psoriasis, shingles, hemorrhages, post-surgery treatment and more. It is applied topically and taken internally in a liquid form. However, instead of curing anything, it is actually a toxic substance. It contains allontoin which results in the same adverse effects as the alkaloid of comfrey. A cathartic, its purgative properties are due to three pentosides (barbaloin, iso-barbaloin, and beta-barbaloin) and to a resin. The resin is aloetin.
Aloe emodin occurs in the free state and as glycoside in various species of aloe and is extremely irritating to the delicate linings of the intestinal tract. The body attempts to discharge this poison quickly. Hence, its purgative effects.
But what about the claims? Many people experience that their sores, burns, and ulcers heal almost immediately after applying aloe vera, where otherwise would heal very slowly. The body is continually striving toward health and will do all it can to protect itself from any poisonous substances. When aloe vera is applied to an ulcer, the body closes off that opening as quickly as it can to block the entrance of that poisonous substance thereby protecting itself. This gives the false impression of proper healing. However, when the ulcer was an outlet for toxic materials, this vital outlet is closed off and toxins are kept inside the body. Now a new outlet must be found. Either other ulcers will form or more serious diseases will result.
If you do not interfere with bodily intelligence, healing will take place. To "intelligently do nothing" is the best advice for all ulcers, psoriasis, etc. That is, simply follow the teachings of Life Science/Natural Hygiene and your body will surely be vital enough to heal itself promptly.
All powerful laxatives that can cause diarrhea.
i have learned allot from Natural Hygiene and applying deeper science to diet.
OT one time i had a bad burn (radiator cap opened into face) and i found the way i got healed fast was shavings of potatoes. where some may think aloe as a solution but the potato thing worked very well as suggested by a lady with burn experience
I do not see aloe on the list of forbidden ingredients on 30BaD. http://www.30bananasaday.com/notes/Ingredients_and_photos_not_suppo...
I have had great effects from aloe personally. I use the whole food aloe in my recipes. Aloe sap is the part of the aloe leaf that acts as a natural laxative. After peeling, you can simply wash it off. I do not get "purgative effects" from it.
I am of course always open to new ideas and research, but for now, judging from my experience, I will continue on with my aloe. (in moderation of course) Thanks!
it used to be. no idea how the decision to take it off was made
but here is info about it NOT having b12 http://jacknorrisrd.com/?p=2876
Containing B12.... increasing absorption of B12... either way- I'll take it! Thanks!
:) another thing about it is that it is not only loaded with those alkaloids we avoid but that it is not a 'food' meaning you couldn't eat just it.
but so long as you are not promoting it here i have no issue with your personal choices. just saying it is not something we do as natural hygiene.
Not everyone on here believes in NH, it's a LFRV forum not a NH forum.
and what do you think the difference is?
i think you mean High Carb Low Fat Low Protein Raw (when possible) Vegan ning site?
the roots of this comes from Natural Hygiene certainly and i can't think of any learning from it that does not get applied in 80 10 10 .
Therefor the reason it gets sourced in the ingredients recommended.
I point it out for your health not to get aversion or a evidence-less argument about it. But if you have sources that say other wise i am all eyes.
on search i found this:
I actually called an aloe grower once to see if it was grown organically. He told me they don't spray because no animals or insects will even touch the stuff. There's no calories in the stuff
