aloe vera honey health benefits

What about aloe vera benefits when combined with honey? Here are 13 recipes that may help.

Honey is known to be an incredible enhancer of other medicinal products, either natural or synthetic, boosting their healing power. About aloe vera benefits when combined with honey, folk medicine has a long tradition of using them successfully, and science has already confirmed the enhancing effects of honey, royal jelly and beebread in association with other products.

It may be compared to the way everything functions in this world, which is in pairs. Together. In groups, families, swarms, communities. Going through life has always been easier this way. And it seems that plants and natural products work better together, too.

There are studies showing that honey has better results when associated with onion, cinnamon, black seeds, horseradish, black radish, ginger, garlic, turmeric, seabuckthorn, walnuts even coffee, and so many other.

The list may continue with synthetic drugs that have higher effects when combined with honey: gentamicin, rifampicin, oxacillin, gentamicin, clindamycin, or chemotherapeutic drugs like Temozolomide (TMZ).

Aloe vera and honey health benefits

Aloe vera is a cactus that we can grow in a pot, at home, in the garden or buy it from the market (not that recommended because it contains preservatives).
We use only the gel, which is the translucent pulp of the leaves. As a rule the leaves are harvested when they are at least 3 years old, to have good enough medicinal properties, but in combination with honey it is recommended to use only the 5 years old.

Take the whole plant and keep it in a dark place without watering, for 5 days. Then cut the leaves, wash them, let the juice drip off, wash again and then filet the gel. (details at the end of the article).

A case of IV stage uterine cancer of a Russian woman was also reported, who cured herself with it. She took 1 spoon of this tonic 3 times per day in the first 5-7 days, with 2 hours before meals. The following days the dose was increased with 1 teaspoon taken also 3 times per day, with 1 hour before meals.
This treatment was published by the Russian doctor Igor Savitski, manager of  Moscow Oncology Institute, after he recognized that his patient, Sabir Maria, cured herself with this tonic, in 3 months.

(Please notice that the recipe mentions aloe vera leaves (not gel), which means the sap and the green peel might have also been used. Science does not recommend the ingestion of the toxic sap (aka latex), but then, science was not able to cure her cancer while aloe vera was. Nevertheless we don’t know for sure if the leaves were used wholly or not.)

Aloe is a very popular plant in Russia and Siberia, where it is associated with exceptional healing qualities. The majority of these recipes are collected from their traditional medicine. 

What is aloe vera gel?

Cut off the outermost leaves of an aloe vera plant using a sharp knife at the base of the plant. The leaves do not grow back, but by only cutting a portion of the plant, you will leave the whole of it to continue to grow and produce more aloe vera for you in the future.
For therapeutic needs you need a 5 years old plant, left in the dark and unwatered for 5 days.

Once you cut the leaf, a yellow substance will begin to ooze from the cut. Point the leaf vertically, cut end down, into a bowl to allow the substance to continue coming out. Use a pitcher of water and your fingers to clean the leaf from top to bottom, directing the water into the bowl as well. The yellow ooze is a sap called aloe latex.
This is not aloe vera juice. It is considered to have powerful laxative effects.

Remove the green spikes and rind using a sharp knife, like you would filet a fish. This part is even called “gel fillet”.
The translucent jelly pulp is what you need. It is the gel of aloe vera. Blend it and you’ll have a juicy gel that can be kept in the refrigerator.
