Using Aloe Vera for Ulcers of the Stomach
Start drinking a very small amount of high quality Aloe Vera Gel (say 1 teaspoon) 3 or 4 times a day. Slowly build this up to 3 or 4 tablespoons, 3 or 4 times a day on an empty stomach. This build up could take days or weeks, it is up to the sufferer to decide.
Once the pain has subsided continue to take a 'maintenance dose' of 2 tablespoons, twice a day on an empty stomach to avoid ulcers returning.
How long will it take for Aloe Vera to work with Ulcers of the Stomach?
As a very general rule of thumb allow one month for every year the ulcers have been in the stomach although recovery time will depend on the number of Ulcers, how extreme they are and the general state of health and diet.
Some users have reported success even when they are close to surgery. By drinking one tablespoon an hour they have averted the need for surgery
