What is  Gout, and can drinking Aloe Vera Gel help reduce the symptoms?

Gout is a form of arthritis that occurs mainly in the hands and leg joints.
The cause is an imbalance in the metabolic system where there is an excess of uric acid in the blood. The salt deposits from this acid irritate the tissues in the joints which then become inflamed and cause pain
Note that like arthritis it is not the ailment that causes the pain but the inflammation.
Main causes include obesity, excessive consumption of red meat, fat, beer and wine
A three pronged approach should be taken with gout:-
1) To reduce the inflammation drink a high quality Aloe Vera Gel and plenty of liquids.
WHY? – Aloe is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, it will also provide a host of nutrients required by the body to return the balance.
2) If the sufferer is overweight start a weight loss programme, cut red meat, fat, beer, wine, white flour and sugar.
WHY? – This will remove some of the sources which exasperate the illness
3) As well as the Aloe Vera take supplements of vitamin A & E (https://www.foreverliving.com/retail/shop/shopping.do?task=viewProductDetail&itemCode=054)
WHY? – To help provide the building blocks to take the body back to balance.

How long will it take for Aloe Vera to work with Gout?

Recovery time depends very much on the current diet, the weight and other ailments being suffered from. The other key factor will be the quality of product that you use.

As a very rough rule of thumb it will take one month for every year of the ailment suffered.
How much Aloe Vera Gel should I drink?
Take 2 60ml shots a day on an empty stomach, once in the morning and once in the evening. Make sure you drink a good quality brand.

Why is it worth doing a detox/cleanse during the Spring Equinox ?

On 20th March 2013 we will be experiencing the Spring Equinox(equal hours of day and night,) at this time of year there is a sudden shift of energy. During the winter our energy primarily moves up our back and down our front, but on the equinox the circulation flips and the energy then moves up our front and down out back, which has a much more expansive feel than the winter circulation.
At the specific moments when the shift takes place there is a huge surge of energy which detoxifies our cells, and we can use this opportunity, and support the process by taking part in an active detoxification plan at this time of year.

The benefits of doing a detox:
It will give your liver a break from digestion and allow it to do a spring clean.
It will bring back control into your life and natural balance into your body.
It will fuel the body and teach it to use it’s own resources efficiently.
It provides the body with the energy it requires to operate and more to mend any damage already caused.
It will rid the body of all the side effects of bad habits.
It will cleanse your system
It will enhance your circulation and improve your immune system.

I would like to recommend the Forever Living Clean 9 Plan.
I have done it twice,and it felt much more manageable compared to other fasts and cleanses I have done in the past and I felt amazing afterwards. My partner did the Clean 9 in January for the first time, lost a stone in weight and has not ventured back onto the sugar since. Even better than that, he feels empowered by the Clean 9 experience so much he has even started to talk about giving up the fags.
Clearing the diary so you can have the first 3 days to yourself, to relax and start the cleansing journey.
By resting the digestive system for the first 3 days the body has the chance to start ridding the body of some of the 5/10lbs of toxins it has been carrying around.
During this time Aloe Vera drinking gel is consumed to aid in cleaning out the digestive system, it also contains 200 natural occurring nutrients, so you are not left nutrient deficient.
Garcinia is taken 20 minutes before every meal replacement, which is herb inhibits the enzyme which converts calories to fats, and naturally suppresses appetite, this supplement contains chromium to help balance blood sugar levels.
Bee Pollen is consumed in intervals during the day to add in B vitamins which improves mood and support your cells in the energy making process.
Finally a protein shake, Forever Lite Ultra with Aminotein (chocolate or vanilla) is used to boost your nutrient intake.

Once you have completed day 3, that evening you are able to eat a small healthy 500 calorie meal. YIPPEE !!
Although by this time you have probably adjusted to the solid free regime.

For the final days you continue with the supplements and eat one healthy 500 Calorie meal a day.
RESULTS: Most people lose between 5-10lbs of weight and it is a fantastic kick start into a healthier eating SPRING 2013. Your energy levels will rocket and so will your self esteem.

For those people doing the Clean 9 for weight management reasons, Nutrilean is what you could progress onto, to enable more weight loss and learn how to sustain living a healthy lifestyle.

Why would you want to drink Aloe Vera Gel?

You ask me what were the secret forces which sustained me during my long fasts. Well it was my unshakeable faith in God, my simple and frugal lifestyle and the Aloe whose benefits I discovered upon my arrival in South Africa at the end of the nineteenth century”

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

So what are the benefits of Aloe Vera?

GOOD HEALTH: Food nowadays, is often deficient in all the nutrients required for good health because the soil in which it grows is deficient. Drinking Aloe Vera will give you the necessary nutrients, including 19 of the 20 amino acids needed by the human body, and 7 of the 8 essential amino acids which cannot be made by the body, this enables the bodies complex enzyme systems  to work really well. Enzymes are the keys to life !

The Result…..the individual has a wonderful feeling of well being.

GUT FLORA: If a person were to suffer with too much yeast in the gut, regular ingestion of the gel would tend to reduce the overgrowth. The same can be said of the unfriendly bacteria that can accumulate in other certain conditions.

EFFECT ON BOWEL MOVEMENTS: Aloe Vera gel has a wonderful beneficial action on bowel function, which results in smooth and sufficient transit of contents resulting in a softer bulkier stool, making it easier to pass.

USEFUL SOURCE OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS: The only mineral absent from the gel is Selenium and the only vitamin absent is Vitamin D. Therefore drinking aloe vera will top you up daily with all the most important vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive.

ASSISTS IN HEALTHY DIGESTION:Your internal membrane (the skin being your external membrane) is repaired by drinking the gel and this enables the individual to find relief from digestive complaints, such as IBS, Colitis, Crohns disease and many others

There is clear clinical evidence to state that by drinking Aloe Vera the bowel is repaired and is more able to to absorb nutrients more efficiently, especially protein.

BALANCES THE IMMUNE SYSTEM:The long chain sugar (polysaccharide) found in Aloe is known to have an effect on the Cytokine system (the chemical messengers of the immune system). Therefore it can act to balance the immune system and can be called an immunomodulator. In the USA this long chain sugar has been extracted from Aloe and made into a drug.

SKIN: Aloe Vera provides the essential nutrients to feed the basal cells of the skin, which enables the skin to perform it’s vital functions more efficiently. Fibroblasts are specialised skin cells, and they produce fibre such as collagen and elastin, these fibres  are what makes your skin look plump and elastic.  The result………….. you look great!

MUSCLE AND JOINT HEALTH:The substances  such as Salicylic and plant sterols in the Aloe have an anti-inflammatory effect and soothe muscle, and maintain healthy joints, mobility and flexibility.

In the Caribbean, Aloe Vera is called “The Single Bible” as it has the ability to CURE ALL.

Imagine slicing open an aloe leaf and consuming the gel directly from the plant. Forever Living’s Aloe Vera Gel is as close to the real thing as you can get and was the first of it’s kind to receive certification by the International Aloe Science Council. This rich blend of pulp and liquid gives us a product as near to nature as possible.
