ALOE & AIDS
AIDS & Aloe A New Frontier In Research
Our present emerging state of holistic health consciousness is due, in part, to people who are willing to look beyond traditional thinking in health care.
An open mind among health professionals is only one stage in the h6lisdc health movement. The education of the patient is also paramount in the new health-consciousness. This is the day of individuals being responsible for themselves and their-health expression.
Information is the key to knowledge. Only you can determine; is Aloe Vera and it's properties mythical, magical, or medicinal?
A New Frontier in Research
Since 1987, if has apparently been relatively common knowledge among AIDS victims in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that Aloe juice or a drug (POLYSACCHARIDE or ACEMANNAN), derived from it, will provide relief from the symptoms of the disease and will keep those who have the virus but who do not have any of the symptoms of AIDS from developing from, the disease.
Even though the evidence available is preliminary. We feel that because the work was done at the Dallas-Fort Worth Medical Center, Grand Praise. Texas and because of the status of the physicians involved, the work is important and we believe we would be remiss in not reporting the results achieved thus far.
It is very important to understand that this research does not show that Aloe Vera is a cure for AIDS, but it does indicate that in ail cases examined, excellent results were achieved and that in a majority of test cases, Aloe Vera stopped the progress of the disease. In other words, Aloe is not a cure for AIDS, but in a highly effective treatment.
This premise was first put forward in art article filled 'Aloe Drug May Mimic AZT Without Toxicity' in Medical World News. December 1987, The article reported on the research work of Dr. H. Reg McDaniel. According to Dr. McDaniel, "A substance In the Aloe plant (Acemannan) shows preliminary signs of boosting AIDS patients' immune systems and blocking the human immune-deficiency virus spread without toxic side effects."
The results of Dr. McDaniel's pilot sandy showed that the symptom of sixteen AIDS parents were significantly reduced when given 1,000 mg a day of the drug for three months. After three months, six patients with advanced cases of AIDS showed a 20% improvement in symptoms, while less significantly ill patients improved by an average of 71 %. Dr. McDaniel has also reported his research findings at the combined meeting of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists, and College of American Pathologists.
He lays; "Fever and symptoms of night sweats, diarrhea, and opportunistic infections were either eliminated or significantly improved in all patients, with corresponding drops in HIV antibody positive cell cultures and HIV corn antigen levels."
Red call mass increased in all but we patient and twelve initially leukopeic patients had a slight see in white count after treatment.
No toxic effects have been noted in a total of 29 Patients who have new received the experimental drug. There, is also evidence that good quality Aloe Vera juice can relieve the symptoms of AIDS. This is not surprising since the drug (POLYSACCHARIDE or ACEMANNAN) is produced by the plant and would be present in the juice.
An article by Irwin Frank in the July 12, 1988 edition of The Dallas Times Herald quotes Dr. Terry Pulse as saying that twenty ounces of Aloe Vera juice, with the drug stabilized in the Aloe, was administered orally to 69 AIDS patients. "Apparently, the doctor meals stabilized Aloe Vera juice."
According to the article, Pulse says the patients treated with the drug were classified as those who would "never improve or get better," but following treatment, were able to "return to normal work." The article quoted Pulse as saying that these patients 'go back to their standard energy level, their symptoms disappear almost completely- and that's in 81% of the patients that I put on this drug."
He adds that those patients with the AIDS virus who showed no symptoms of the disease remained free of symptoms while taking the drug, which is derived from the Aloe Vera plant.
"The sooner you can get a patient on this drug, the better off they are," says Pulse. He said his Patients take 20 ounces of the liquid a day "and I keep them on it indefinitely. I've had some of them on it for over two years."
"We have had deaths," he says, "but in those patients (who died) most can be attributed to having gone and gotten chemotherapy for skin cancers; or whatever, or have taken other drugs in combination that knocked out their immune system, such as AZT"
When asked what his study and treatment meant as far as art AIDS treatment or cure is concerned, Pulse replied, "It means that until them is a magic bullet this a stopgap measure and it buys them (the AIDS patients) time at a fraction of the cost of AZT."
After reading thus article, we obtained copies of the actual research data published by Dr. Pulse, together with his colleagues, H.R. McDaniel and T. Reg Watson, all of the Dallas-Fort Worth Medical Center. This information was evaluated to eliminate the confusing aspects concerning exactly what was used in the study, whether the product was Aloe Vera juice of the drug or both and in what percentages.
From this data and further investigation, it appears that Aloe Vera juice in its natural state is just as effective a treatment for AIDS as the freeze-dried drug derived from it. It is obvious that any AIDS patient who believes that Aloe Vera might help his condition should be very careful to buy only real, 100% Aloe Vera juice which, as we have noted repeatedly, neither looks nor tastes like water. Real Aloe, we repeat, has a rather tart taste.
Excerpts from 'Aloe-Myth-Magic Medicine Aloe Vera Across Time`
"Today, the patent medicine racket_ described thirty years ago is stiff very much a part of the Aloe Vera industry. All too many within the Aloe Vera industry promote the myth and magic, not the medicine, of Aloe, despite the fact that the medical and scientific evidence is available. The quick buck artists and pseudo-experts have promoted Aloe products (most of which contain little or none of the active ingredients found in Aloe) because there is money to be made by fooling the public."
"As long as promoters continue to sell colorless, tasteless, odorless, and therefore, medically useless products, the need for standardized testing is imperative."
Documents show that the whole leaf was often ground up and used as poultice or was Olden as a treatment for many internal disorders."
"Five of the subjects suffered from indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and excess stomach acid, and all five reported relief from them conditions by the oral administration of Aloe Vera juice. The report notes that these findings support the previously-acknowledged bacteriostatic properties of Aloe Vera juice applied topically."
"Aloe...is one of the most effective preparations, when tested with radiation therapy at patients with various malignant tumors."
"Treatment was found to hasten both the degenerative and reparative phases of the lesion so that complete, handling of an ulcer, caused by 28,000 rap of beta radiation was accomplished within two months of treatment, while the untreated ulcerations were still not completely healed mm than four months radiation." Orion.' The researchers concluded that Aloe Vera contain substances (Acemannam) that are stimulating both the delayed development and delayed healing of ulcerative radio dermatitis and that because of the growing modem importance of this injury, further investigation of the action of Aloe Vera should be pursued.
"_in anti-inflammatory studies, Aloe Vera was also compared to Prodnisolone and Indomethacin (common anti-inflammatory drugs) which were used in comparative studies with Aloe Vera to observe effects on tissue culture cells. The Aloe was found to be as effective as the Prednisolone and Indomethacin, without having the long-term toxicity of either drug."
"... the ability of Aloe Vera la heal third-degree burns and frost bite (is attributed) to the presence in the plant of salicylates ...and the presence of fatty acids, such as Cholesterol, Triglycerides, and cell membrane phospholipids which are precursors at the arachidonic acid cascade. ''Major drug manufacturing companies also realize that natural agents cannot be patented and, therefore, cannot be controlled. This; is especially true for a plant like Aloe Vera, which is already in widespread we by the public-of 200 brands tested, only three supposedly Aloe Vera products contained sufficient amounts of the active agents necessary, for healing," said Dr. McDaniel, who cautioned: "Make ABSOLUTELY SURE that what you are drinking is, in fact, ALOE VERA JUICE and NOT WATER."
