Aloe products

I do not recommend aloe products to be taken internally because the active ingredient is an anthroquinone which is known as a powerful cathartic. Some companies claim they remove the anthroquinone but who knows! In Dr. Haas's 1951 textbook on celiac disease, The Management of Celiac Disease he writes in his chapter, "An Etiologic Hypothesis,"
"Given a hypothesis that the diarrhea of celiac disease is caused by an antrhoquinone irritant produced by a microorganism from a polysaccharide substrate, the following facts make the theory plausible" He then lists a lot of biochemistry but the last item in his list is
"The action of the antrhoquinone cathartics (the emodine purgatives) is similar to the diarrhea observed in celiac disease, and the action of large doses of phenolphthalein results in repeated evacuations for from 3 - 4 days with urine excretion thoughout the period, although only one dose be given."

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
