Miracle Aloe Stops Agony of Arthritis
The Aloe plant offers a natural alternative
By Glenn Troelstrup
Aloe Vera, a miracle plant known for thousands of years, can banish arthritis
pain - even cases described as hopeless by doctors!
"We're getting 90 percent positive results with arthritis patients considered medical
failures - by using aloe vera products," saps Dr. Bruce Hedendal of Hedendal Chiropractic & Nutritional Center.
"Until recently, there were few studies documenting the amazingly curative powers of
properly processed aloe products on arthritis, AIDS, some cancers, ulcers, diabetes,
sickle-cell anemia and other illnesses.
"That's because silent-healing aloe is an unpatentable, natural product, the wide-spread
use of which could wipe out many of the pharmaceutical industry's highly profitable
drugs. And the main-stream medical industry is aligned with those drugs.
"But arthritis is a chronic, degenerative disease that science has failed to effectively treat.
The number of sufferers is growing daily, so they must look for non-medical alternatives. Fortunately, hope is coming from natural nutrition
and plant product research."
Stresses Hedendal, 43, a graduate of Harvard College, New York Chiropractic College
and American Holistic College of Nutrition: "Researchers like Dr. H. Reginald McDaniel Medical Center believe that increased use of aloe
- derived from a cactus-like desert plant - is the most important step forward in disease treatment in human history.
"After all, it's a top food concentrate, along with garlic, flax oil, organic minerals and
stabilized oxygen products.
"For arthritis patients, aloe has proven to be very nutritional, antiseptic and
anti-inflammatory. Comparative studies now show that aloe with sitosterol is as effective
as the anti-inflammatory drugs prednisalone and indome-thacin,
yet lacks their long-term toxicity."
Hedendal's center recommends only whole-leaf,
cold-processed aloe products containing active polysaccharides.
He advises use of aloe cream on arthritic joints to lessen pain and inflammation and
improve range of motion. That should be combined with drinking 1 to 2 ounces of aloe
concentrate daily to boost the immune system and improve digestion.
"My clinical results show that almost no one fails to benefit from the use of aloe," he
But, Hedendal warns: "The majority of commercial aloe products are ineffective
because they're heat-processed, which destroys their active ingredients, or are bogus - no better
Among other remarkable aloe breakthroughs:
AIDS - Dr. Terry Pulse reported in the Journal Of Advancement Of Medicine that half
of his 29 AIDS patients went into remission within 18 months after taking aloe, fatty
acid capsules, vitamins and minerals.
CAT CANCER - A study reported in Molecular Biother found that aloe can reverse
Alternative studies also show:
ULCERS - Aloe heals better than expensive drugs and has no side effects. It
enhances reproduction of normal cells and improves intestinal tissue.
DIABETES - Aloe assists body production of insulin. But serious conditions should
be treated only under medical supervision.
SICKLE-CELL ANEMIA - Aloe helps restore normal cells.
