I recently had the opportunity to review a pain relieving lotion called AloeMD. Aloe, called Aloe Vera, has a very long history of pain relief and healing properties. According to a news article written by Medical News Today “It is cultivated worldwide, primarily as a crop for “Aloe gel,” which comes from the leaf.
Aloe vera is widely used today in:
- Food – it is approved by the FDA as a flavoring.
- Food supplements.
- Herbal remedies.
The earliest record of a human use for Aloe vera comes from the Ebers Papyrus (an Egyptian medical record) from the16th century BC. According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, in ancient Egypt, they called Aloe vera “that plant of immortality.”
My Personal AloeMD Trial Results
I suffer from Interstitial Cystitis, Endometriosis and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, all of which at this time have no cure, but there are treatments depending on the severity of the illnesses, plus some trial and error.
I have suffered from these conditions since 2012. In the six years through this journey, I still am surprised at how well some things work and that some have no effect on my illnesses or pain.
I have been blessed to review a three day supply of AloeMD pain relieving lotion and I was simply amazed at the results!
There are so many products out there that claim to be the answer to the sometimes debilitating effects of Chronic Pain but to my surprise, I actually felt a change only about 45 minutes after rubbing it into the skin on my stomach, back, and legs.
Interstitial Cystitis causes me severe pelvic pain along with Urgency and frequency and I also suffer from Chronic UTIs which require daily antibiotics for at least six months. I have been in a sort of tug-of-war battle with my illnesses for six years now and while I feel like I should know what works and what doesn’t, I am still having to figure out a lot as I go. There is no ‘right way’ to treat my conditions as Chronic Pain and Illnesses affect everyone differently. What works for some may not work at all for others and vice versa.
Benefits Of Aloe Vera
While I have known for years that Aloe Vera has many benefits, I still was hesitant to add something else to my daily routine of medications and treatments due to my bodies extreme side effects when adding something new into my body, natural and prescription. My body has always been at war with itself whenever I added something new to my body, food, medication, or even a slight change in my routine. But after hearing so many amazing things about Aloe Vera, I decided that the possible problems it could cause would far outway the amazing properties of pain relief.
“The medicinal claims made about Aloe vera, as with many herbs and plants, are endless. Some are backed by rigorous scientific studies while others are not. This article focuses mainly on those that are backed by research.
- Teeth and gums
A study published in General Dentistry reported that Aloe vera in tooth gels is as effective as toothpaste in fighting cavities.
Germany’s regulatory agency for herbs – Commission E – approved the use of Aloe vera for the treatment of constipation. Dosages of 50-200 milligrams of Aloe latex are commonly taken in liquid or capsule form once daily for up to 10 days.
- Diabetes-induced foot ulcers
A study carried out at the Sinhgad College of Pharmacy, India, and published in the International Wound Journal looked at Aloe’s ability to treat ulcers.
They reported that a “gel formed with carbopol 974p (1 percent) and Aloe vera promotes significant wound healing and closure in diabetic rats compared with the commercial product and provides a promising product to be used in diabetes-induced foot ulcers.”
- Antioxidant and possible antimicrobial properties
Aloe vera may be used on skin conditions or superficial cuts for its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
Mycoplasma is a type of bacteria that lack a cell wall; they are unaffected by many common antibiotics. Antimycoplasmic substances destroy these bacteria.
They reported that both Aloe vera flower and leaf extracts had antioxidant properties, especially the leaf skin extract. The leaf skin extract also exhibited antimycoplasmic properties.
- Depression, learning, and memory – an animal experiment
A study published in Nutritional Neuroscience found that Aloe vera reduced depression and improved memory in mice.
After carrying out experiments on laboratory mice, they concluded: “Aloe vera enhances learning and memory, and also alleviates depression in mice.”
Further studies are needed to establish whether humans might also receive the same benefits.
