What are the effects of aloe vera on radiation burns caused by cancer treatment and on the cancer itself?
“Attention has been drawn worldwide to the potential value of the prepared generation of Aloe arborescence [aloe] After World War II, when the skin burns of nuclear bomb victims over Japan were successful Treat with his jelly.” You don’t really know for sure, though, until you test it out.
As I discuss in my video Aloe vera for the treatment of advanced metastatic cancerMost of today’s radiation burns it causes By doctors who provide radiation therapy for cancer. These can cause ‘severe’, ‘painful’ and ‘scar’ skin reactions that can interfere with treatment, but unfortunately, we have not yet come up with good skin-protective therapeutic measures to prevent radiotoxicity of the skin. Enter aloe vera gel, which has been used on skin burns for centuries. So what happened when a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial compared aloe vera gel versus a placebo gel?
No utility found, as you can see below and at 1:02 in my country video.
However, “After completing this double-blind pilot study, several clinicians participated in the study Poetry That patients participating in this trial had less dermatitis (or dermatitis) than expected. This raised the question of whether a placebo gel would cause some benefit (perhaps due to skin lubrication). So, to their credit, they ran a second experiment to see if aloe vera was better than nothing at all, and again, aloe vera seemed to have no effect at all. In both experiments, the “scores of severity were nearly identical,” meaning that aloe vera gel simply did not work.
In a larger trial, hundreds of patients had random To aloe vera gel or regular skin lotion – not only during radiotherapy, but also for two weeks after it is completed. Results? Regular skin lotion was much better than aloe vera gel at reducing dry flaking [skin peeling] and pain associated with treatment.” Again, aloe vera failed. Indeed, a systematic review of all these studies Offers Simply put, there is no evidence from clinical trials to suggest that topical aloe vera is effective or beneficial. Head and neck cancer patients Suffers The added burden of radiation damage is on the lining of the mouth and throat, and aloe doesn’t seem to help with that either.
Well, aloe vera may not help treat cancer, but what about helping treat the cancer itself? In a Petri dish, aloe vera”It is forbidden proliferation of breast and cervical cancer cells It is forbidden Lung cancer cells, so he is Aloe vera a “natural anti-cancer”? Unfortunately, “in vitro potency,” that is, petri dish studies, often fail to translate to the clinic due to several factors, including the fact that the compounds are not bioavailable enough to accumulate to intra-tumor test tube levels in the body. So, while “Some studies Suggest Anti-proliferative effect on cancer cells in vitro…Evidence from clinical trials is currently not available”—that is, it was missing…until 1998.
Fifty patients with advanced and incurable cancer Treat Using either daily melatonin, which researchers thought may boost anti-cancer immunity, or melatonin with about 20 drops of aloe vera extract, prepared by steeping one part of aloe vera leaves in nine parts of 40-alcohol alcohol. And the aloe group seemed to work better. They were more likely to have a partial response or at least some stability and, most importantly, improved survival.
You can see the graph of the survival curves below and at 3:43 in my country video.
Six months, for example, 80 percent of the aloe group they were It is still alive, while more than half of the non-cactus group has died. The researchers concluded that melatonin and aloe vera might be recommended “for patients with very advanced, untreatable cancers,” as it doesn’t seem to cause any bad side effects, and actually appears to help. We don’t know if aloe vera helps on its own or not, and a subsequent study by the same research group muddy Water more by adding a third ingredient, myrrh tincture. But the main problem with these studies is that they weren’t random. If the sicker patients were intentionally—or unintentionally—placed in the non-aloe control group, that alone could explain the apparent benefit of aloe vera. The problem is, there had never been any randomized studies of aloe in advanced cancers, until 2009, which I said Coverage in my video Can aloe vera cure cancer?.
