Its hard doing searches for it, especially if I include AMP in the search because all that pops up are those sites and adds promoting it. They've flooded google and none of it has any scientific data to back up any of the claims.I heard that it could cause bleeding when taken intestinally, especially for Crohn's patients. I don't have a link, but you could probably find that info online.
I seem to remember reading that it was good for IBS, but not for Crohn's.
I was trying to type NOT as sever*I am not a doctor at any means, however ive been to a few doctors and I was sick of them trying new medications out on me, made me feel like a guinea pig :-( However I do not believe my crohns is sever as others(my doctor would disagree) so I decided to try a more natural approach, I really feel better and my skin is softer and healthier. The brand I use is Aloe Gold by Hilltop Gardens GI formula, it is NOT cheap and the reason why i chose this brand is because my friend did research on it for many years and said it is the best grade of Aloe out there who knows but it works for me
I just typed 'aloe intestinal bleeding' into the Yahoo search bar and I didn't have any popups on any of the sites I checked out.
I have no idea who Dr. Standley is, but here is a quote from his site -
"DO NOT take Aloe Vera if you are pregnant or if you have any gastro-intestinal disorders. May cause allergic reactions, cramping or diarrhea. If taken internally as a purgative, it may cause a hemorrhage. DO NOT exceed recommended dosages. If taken as a laxative in excess, it could lead to irritation of the bowels or ulcers."
This site mentions the benefit for use in colitis patients -
I'm not saying not to take it, I'm just saying that *I* won't risk it personally. It may be great for "normal" people, but not Crohnies in my opinion.
