Aloe SocotrinaDoes this remedy increase your appetite? Will it help weight loss.
Is it the same as the aloe vera drink.

No not at all. Aloe Sec.is called (mussabar in handi) and Alovera (Kawargandal in handi) is another herb and both herb have different qualities. However, the second i.e. Alovera is meant for reducing weight and appitite.

Dr.Haran ch malaker 7 years agoSo a good remedy for constipation and bloating.
Aloe Vera juice always made my breast swell because I felt it had estrogenic properties in it and I was estrogen dominant going through menopause.
Will this remedy do the same - will it be 'estrogenic' for me - that is why I'm hesitant about it.
kohler 7 years agoHomoeopathic remedies only 'work' when they are prescribed on the basis of the law of similars - what a substance can cause it can cure. So Aloe will do nothing for you, unless you have a set of symptoms similar to the ones Aloe can cause when given to someone without symptoms. It will not alter your body, your hormones, your instincts, unless it is indicated specifically for you (as determined by a homoeopathic practitioner).
