From a case report to a randomized controlled trial, aloe is being tested against cancer.
For half a century, aloe vera gel treatments and distributors have been used armed With Bible quotes and anecdotal testimonies…[have sought] Acknowledgment of their products”—often, “accompanied by misinformation,” and no more than that Strengthen Aloe vera for cancer treatment. As I discuss in my video Can aloe vera cure cancer?There was a recent case report involve A 64-year-old Hispanic woman with a tumor in her eyeball, as you can see below and at 0:31 in videoAnd the seem Such as the case of superficial squamous cell neoplasms of the eye (OSSN), a type of eye cancer.
Surgery was recommended to remove it, “but the patient refused and instead started using the concentrate a. vera Eye drops three times a day on the suggestion of a friend.” I just used the ready-made aloe vera gel product, and to the doctor’s surprise, “the lesion showed significant improvement only one month ago… at follow-up after two months, the patient’s infection was noticeably reduced.” When The case report was written, “6 years since its initial presentation”, the cancer seems to be gone and has been gone, as you can see below and at 1:04 in video.
Typically, you’ll go in and cut through the cancer by wide margins to make sure you get everything, because “despite the best efforts of the eye surgeon…recurrence rates of up to 56% have been reported due to microscopic disease that is clinically unclear at the time of surgical excision.” In other words, surgery may miss small parts of the cancer. In this case, the tumor disappeared without any surgery at all.
Are we sure it was cancerous? The patient refused a biopsy, so we don’t know for sure. However, he had all the distinguishing characteristics. So, seeing the tumor disappear without any side effects and staying out is very unusual. “Surgical resection is still a very reasonable treatment option for many cases of OSSN,” but at least there is an option for patients to try if they don’t want to go down that route.
Of course, this was just one case report without a control group. It’s not like she had tumors in both eyes and tried using aloe vera on only one eye. There was a controlled study I presented at 2:08 in my country video who – which I suggested Aloe vera can extend survival in people with advanced, untreatable cancer, but it wasn’t random controlled study. A decade later, we got exactly that.
Hundreds of metastatic cancer patients were random For chemotherapy with or without aloe vera, as you can see below and at 2:28 in my country videoAloe group It was Three times as many complete responses and larger objective responses to the tumor, and two-thirds of them had some level of disease control compared to only half in the non-aloe vera group. But, does that translate into improved survival? yes. For example, in one year, 70 percent of the cactus group was still alive, while most died in the non-cactus group.
As a bonus, “chemotherapy was much better tolerated” in the cactus group, with less stress, for example, and better immune system maintenance, as you can see below and at 2:59 in video. So, given better disease control and better survival, “this study appears to Suggest Aloe vera may be successfully combined with chemotherapy [as an add-on therapy] To increase its effectiveness in terms of tumor regression rate and survival time. “
As I mentioned, this was a randomized controlled study, but it wasn’t randomized under phantom control study. It’s not as if the control group got a fake aloe vera drink, so some of the tumor’s response may be the result of a placebo effect.
There are potential downsides to aloe vera. As I explained in my video Is aloe vera gel the best treatment for lichen planus?In rare cases, aloe vera can be swallowed Effects hepatitis and Wave Electrolyte imbalance due to diarrhea or vomiting. For example, there is I was A case of low potassium induced by aloe vera was reported in a female patient with breast cancer, which resolved quickly once aloe vera was discontinued, and it is believed that this is due to the laxative effect that aloe vera can have.
If you want to talk to your doctor about trying it, note This was not a cactus, but a cactus arborescensa tree-like cactus that can reach ten feet in height, as you can see below and at 4:08 in video. Cooking researchers made A mixture of about two-thirds of a pound of fresh aloe vera leaves to a pound of honey, plus about three tablespoons of 40 percent alcohol, was given orally in a dose of two teaspoons three times daily starting six days before the start of chemotherapy.
