aloe vera juice ?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could tell me a little bit about aloe vera juice. My dr has said she thinks I may have ibs but I need to first recover from a hysterectomy before going to a specialist to find out. My main symptoms are very bad constipation, bloating and stomach pain. I have tried a high fiber diet, I drink the recommended amount of water a day, and take stool softners but nothing is helping. Out of desperation I have resorted to laxative use when it gets too bad. I read something about aloe vera juice so I went to the health food store and got some. There has been no relief after 2 days of drinking the recommended dosage of 4 oz daily (the juice is 99.5 %). My questions are: does this seem like the normal amount to take, how does everyone take it? (I take 2 oz in the am and 2 oz in the pm), and how long until I will see some relief? Thanks to all that can offer me advice.
