Is Aloe Vera a complementary or alternative medicine?
The truth is it can be either or both. Some doctors find great success using Aloe Vera alongside prescription drugs and conventional medical treatments. Many have reported, for example, that it helps with radiation burns during cancer treatments. In this sense it is a complementary medicine.
There are also those who have found they can stop taking medication or using other clinical treatments. This is not always sudden and may happen gradually over a period of time as the aloe vera takes over the role of the conventional drugs. If you are hoping to achieve this it is recommended you do so in consultation with your doctor.
