Aloe has made a difference in Ellena's life so I needed to share her story hoping it help others.

 Ellena is a very active woman, aged a little more than 60.  She told us - my husband, my mother in law and me,- that she took care of her father  who suffered a very painful arthritis; and then, when she was 19 years old she start feeling pains as her father’s, but she was already pregnant.  When she had her daughters, twins, she thought she was not going to be able to take care of them.  She can barely leave the bed and walk around to go to the bathroom.  Her husband was who took care of the girls. She was diagnosed with “Deformative arthritis”.  Later on, she arrived to the US to her sister’s house and the one thing she carried was a huge amount of medicines.  Her sister was surprised and asked if someone else was sick – besides Ellena.  But not, all of those were just hers.  Her sister laughed and told Ellena that the only thing she needed was to eat a daily piece of the “crystal” of the Aloe plant.  Of course Ellena doubted about this “treatment”; but tried it.

Ellena said this changed her life making it a miracle.  The Doctors here in the US certify that she has “the illness” but she doesn’t suffer the symptoms.  Ellena not only raised her daughters but is enjoying and taking care of her granddaughter.  Ellena has been active without pain and still has a mobility that many “healthy” doesn’t have at her age. He showed us that she cuts a leaf of the Aloe, and puts it in the fridge.  Every day she cuts a little piece, the size of the pinky, PEELS IT, and eats the crystal – the inside - of the plant, that looks like a gel.  Many say it is bitter, but if you see her eating it you think it is delicious. She says it has done a miracle in her and she now enjoys its taste!


I hope this helps you if you have pain and swelling.  I don’t think you should stop your other treatments, but to add this as a supplement and see if it helps!!!

God bless.



I have several latina employees who regularly eat aloe.  They buy huge (to me) leaves, cut them into pieces and boil them a little to tenderize.  They do not peel.

No spices - nothing else - just cut, boil and eat.  It's pretty tasteless this way.

Once I asked, why they eat the Aloe.  They explained for "good health" you must eat Aloe once a week.   Maybe they are on to something...

I eat aloe but can't bring myself to do it daily. It's almost tasteless but unpleasant due to it gel-like substance. I mix it in my salads most of the time. In many countries aloe is considered highly medicinal. Once I used it on my burn from the stove. I pilled one side and applied it to the burn and held it for a few minutes. I remember it was painful at first b/c it doesn't relieve the pain like ice would but the blister never developed and the burn healed easily.
