A Brief History of Aloe as a Natural Remedy
The use of plants as a form of medicine dates back to the very origins of Homo sapiens. Even animals, especially carnivorous animals, will consume plants to alleviate stomach pains or illnesses. Animals like the jaguar, cat, and dogs have been known to eat grass to remedy against fur balls, to relieve gastric distress, or to dislodge parasites.
People throughout history have primarily used plants for nourishment, and through trial and error they discovered that some plants are good for food, some plants are poisonous, and that some plants produce bodily changes. The plants that cause bodily changes such as bowel movement, urination, pain relief, healing, and even hallucination have been fine-tuned for all natural remedies for medicinal or psychological purposes. Over thousands of years, the knowledge of herbalism has been passed down generations orally, with each descendants adding and refining the body of knowledge.
Every culture in the world has, through this manner, developed a form of herbal knowledge that has been incorporated in its tradition. The Aloe Vera plant specifically has been found in writings from many different cultures that date as far back as the Greek, Egyptian, and Roman eras. There have even been references to the healing powers of Aloe Vera found in early Indian and Chinese cultures.
The earliest record of Aloe Vera used as a natural remedy for digestive disorders and other topical uses is from a Sumerian tablet from 2100 BC. An Egyptian papyrus dated 1550 BC was found in 1862 and dated Aloe Vera’s antiquity. Greek and Roman physicians greatly used the healing aspects of Aloe Vera, as well as Indian and Chinese cultures. Aloe Vera was found to be used by the Philippines for kidney infections. There are even biblical references to the use aloe as a natural remedy.
Today, Aloe Vera is still being utilized to relieve pain caused by minor burns and scrapes. Studies are underway around the world for the use of Aloe Vera, more specifically the Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharide molecule, in the treatment of IBS and ulcerative colitis. One study showed that 38% of the patients suffering from Ulcerative colitis showed improvement in symptoms through using the plant’s molecule.
When taken internally, the Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharide molecule has been used to help treat constipation, ulcers, bloating, and discomfort. Aloe Mucilaginous Polysaccharide is 100% natural and when ingested, has been shown to relieve symptoms associated with digestive disorders.
