The Miracle Healer: Aloe Vera. Latin name-genus is Aloe vera. Use the fresh gel inside of the leaf. All the miracles I've witnessed have been with the fresh plant only. Best species is Aloe vera, but I have seen other species in Spain, India, Costa Rica, Mexico. I have used them all and they all work in the same miraculous way. I believe that the healing chemicals in Aloe, especially allantoin, are more concentrated, thus more effective, in the older plants. In a pinch, use any plant you can get. Aloe plants 7 years old and older are the most healing.
Therapeutic Benefits: Miracle healer, repairs tissue inside and outside the body, even in third degree burns, Aloe vera is indeed a miracle plant. I have seen it heal tissue that was dead and gone, right in front of my eyes. Tissue that the doctors would say is dead, gone, and cut it away, Aloe can bring back to life.
I have seen Aloe when put immediately on a severe burn or wound, create miracles on tissue that is severely damaged, or so damaged, it was gray and dead.
I have never in hundreds of cases seen Aloe cause infection when packed into the most serious burns. I have never seen antibiotics be necessary. I burned my own hand right to the bone in a laboratory fire, and doctors warned me that the infection would kill me. I was terrified. But I never used antibiotics, and neither did any of my patients.
There must be something in Aloe that kills infection. I also believe that the infection doctors see is coming from the inside of the patient. It is the internal filth that is finally expressing itself through an open wound. That is why it is so important to cleanse the colon thoroughly. When a patient is severely burned, they should stop all solid food and go to juices immediately. This is mandatory. The patient cannot afford to waste energy digesting food. Juices are like a natural healing transfusion.
Dosage, Internal: Pick a fresh leaf of Aloe vera. This is done by just slicing the leaf off near the base of the plant with a sharp paring knife. The oldest leaves are at the base. These are the strongest. Take the leaf into the house and place on a cutting board. Trim off the leaf edges and then filet off the top and bottom skin until you are left only with a slab of clear gel. Place the slab of gel into a blender. You may add flax seeds, slippery elm inner bark, and other mucilaginous herbs, and a little water or fresh juice. Blend and drink. Or insert into the rectum or vagina as needed.
Dosage, External: Place a slab of the gel, at least 1/4 inch thick and not more than 1/2 inch thick, directly over the wound and hold it in place with cotton gauze. Aloe can also be mixed with the herb slippery elm and it will stick to any body part. Change the gauze 1 or 2 times during the day and put on a fresh piece before bed. For burns, do this only for at least 2 if not 3 days before considering any other treatment. For wounds with debris in them, they should first be flushed with an anti-infection herbal tincture (see body glue under).
For first and second degree burns, young Aloe may be okay. But for third and forth degree burns you are better off with old Aloe plants, 7 years old or more.
For severe burns, dress with slabs of Aloe gel cut from an Aloe leaf, then cover with gauze. You can mix in slippery elm into gel you mash up, but it is not necessary.
Leave the Aloe on all night so the patient can sleep, and change the dressing perhaps 2 to 3 times during the day with additional fresh slabs of Aloe. It will just soak into the wound.
If there is a gig hole or deep wound, not just a burn, slippery elm is an additional accelerator in regrowing the lost tissue. See the section on the emergency herb slippery elm.
Note: Dr. John Christopher got similar results to Aloe and slippery elm with Comfery leaf and root.
