The sufferer must make sure their diet is healthy. To turn Chrons around the body is going to need all the Vitamins, minerals, proteins and other building blocks that it can get.

The Inflammation can be quelled and then Aloe's other property comes to life. Aloe boosts the body's immune system and accelerates the rate at which cells divide and thus speeds up the healing process. This works on the Ulcers in the intestine to close them down
Finally Aloe contains Saponins, a natural cleanser, which will work through and clean out the digestive track.
