Is Aloe Vera an Effective Treatment for Eczema?

Aloe Vera Plant

The mother of a child with eczema asked me about aloe vera:

"Have you heard about Acemannan? (Aloe vera capsules) - Apparently it's great for eczema and immune system?"

This is a good question that raises some issues worth discussion and sharing with others, so here we go!

I certainly know a lot about aloe for eczema, but never seen an improvement from its use.

I got this email today:

".... have been following your regime closely, including the detox recipe. Each morning I take the candida supplements and zinc, and the powdered Blackcurrant / NAC / Vit C drink. Every night (except a couple of times), I’ve been doing the iodine and flax oil on the infected areas. The hips cleared up the fastest. The elbows have taken a little longer and there's some residual irritation there, but a huge improvement and, in another week or so, will probably be all cleared up."

Refer here again, as well:

There are lessons to be learned from this feedback:

  • Allow the evidence as outlined in testing, such as hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) to guide the therapies.

  • Concentrate on addressing the "root causes" which always include nutrient mineral imbalances, and deficiencies. If these aren't corrected, then everything else will fail.

  • Of course, at the same time, deal with secondary issues, usually infections that arise from these root causes.

  • Being patient and consistent are of critical importance for success. It's accepted that this can be especially challenging when the person is a child, but this rule still applies.

  • "Body, health thyself", and "let food be thy medicine", are ageless rules for enduring health.

  • It's important to think in terms of human years, rather than the years of a laboratory rat. Restoring health and balance in a human takes a long time.

Just one final point in the case of conditions like eczema, which is a condition where a yeast infestation has become deeply embedded within the body, including the skin: Yeast have a hard, impervious outer shell which protects them from the immune system and all but the most powerful of antibiotics. It's said that yeast can survive space travel and nuclear war! Yeast hibernates when conditions are unfavourable; then it'll burst back into life the moment conditions improve. Bear this in mind. So, don't let up with the therapy just because the skin appears to be clear. I'd say this: keep going hard out with the therapies for at least another three to six months after the very last sign of infection has cleared.

So, regarding the addition of aloe: Yes, add it in, but only on the condition that the root-cause therapies are being continuously applied daily. Aloe might help, but not on its own.

I hope these comments are helpful.
