Detox Series: Aloe Vera Juice

As the christmas season is nearing, I thought I’d share one of my favorite tricks to support my body’s natural detoxification system. 

Supporting your body’s natural detoxification process is so important. We are more then ever exposed to toxins in our environment; air pollution, water pollution, radiation,  pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, synthetic ingredients in your body care products, the list goes on. 
Now, your body is built to deal with these environmental toxins, but add to that stress, lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet and you’ve got a recipe for serious and chronic illness down the road.

Aloe Vera has been used for centuries to treat different ailments both internal and external. The first record of medicinal use dates back to 1500 B.C., but it is rumored that even the Egyptian queen Cleopatra used it in her beauty regime. 

Aloe vera is considered an adaptogenic herb; it increases the body’s ability to deal with environmental and internal stressors. Besides helping the body to balance itself out, it also has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Aloe is most known as a treatment for sunburned skin, but it also works wonders when taken internally to soothe any digestive ailments. It detoxifies the body by trapping the toxins into it’s gel structure. Other gelatinous foods, like chia seeds for example, have the same detoxifying effect. 


So ‘nough chit chat, here’s the recipe:

  • 1 aloe vera leaf
  • spring water
  • optional: stevia and lemon juice 


Peel the aloe leaf. The outer green part is actually a strong diuretic, so unless you have been constipated for a week, don’t consume it. What you want to use is the inner gel of the leaf; the slimy translucent part.
Put the gel into the blender with about a cup of spring water and blend. Now Aloe doesn’t exactly scream YUMMY, so to make it more palatable I like to add 1-2 drops of liquid stevia and the juice of half a lemon. 

I recommend to drink this little magic potion first thing in the morning so that it doesn’t interfere with anything still left in your stomach. 

I think I’ll start a detox series as I’ve got a couple tricks up my sleeve. ;)

hey sorry to bother you, I really love your blog ♥ I was just wondering if you knew any natural ways of helping arthritis. the stuff you wrote about herbs was really helpful, too, so thank you!!! ♥ I hope you have a nice day :)

I don’t how specific you are when you ask about natural, but I want to throw exercise and diet out there first and foremost. With both of those, depending on your current state, weight loss may come from this, and I know that the less weight your body has to carry, the easier it is on your joints. But if you meant healing plants exclusively, I have a list here for you:

  • Aloe Vera: usually this is used for skin abrasions, but it also has anti-inflammatory properties, and can be used for RA. It may be cheaper/more cost-effective to buy the actual plant and rip off a few leaves when the need arises, than to buy the bottle of aloe vera, plus, you can guarantee that your aloe at home is 100% the real deal, and not watered down or ‘enhanced’ with chemicals made in a lab.
  • Eucalyptus: Like aloe, it’s rather easy to find eucalyptus. For RA, you can take this natural remedy orally or as a topical oil. The leaves include tannins which help relieve swelling and pain. To maximize the effect, use eucalyptus with a heating pad. 
  • Boswellia: This plant is more commonly known as frankincense, of which I’m sure you’ve heard of. It has anti-inflammatory properties (like many of the plants I’ll list), and works by blocking leukotrienes. You can find boswellia in capsule or topical cream form.
  • Ginger: Perhaps one of my favorite remedies, as it has a slew of health benefits and can be used to treat many, many things. For RA, it is (yet another) anti-inflammatory. Plus it tastes really good and you can drink it as a tea, or put it in your food, no biggie.
  • Green Tea: Speaking of tea, green tea has a lot of healing properties to it, including, you guessed it, anti-inflammatory properties. It works well for people living with osteoarthritis and RA.
  • Cat’s Claw: This flowering vine plant dates back to Inca civilization, used to boost immune system functions. Studies have shown that it can help reduce swelling, but you have to be careful with how much you use, because if you intake too much, you may overstimulate the immune system, and that can make your RA worse. Stick to the recommended dosage and you’ll be fine.
  • Thunder God Vine: This plant is used in Chinese medicine, which has been around for thousands of years. When the vine’s roots are skinned, the plant can be used to help with suppressing overactive immune systems. However, heed caution. This vine can be incredibly toxic if any other part of the plant is used besides the skinned roots.
  • Willow Bark: This one goes way, way back. It’s one of the oldest remedies to treat inflammation. It relieves osteoarthritis-related joint pain, and is usually taken as tea or as a tablet. Remember not to overdose though. Anything that is used as an anti-inflammatory works right if you use the right amount.
  • Turmeric: An anti-inflammatory that works best if taken orally. This is the spice that’s often used in curries, and lends itself to yellow and red curries’ bright colors. Studies show that it may slow the progression of RA if taken/consumed regularly. 

These are just a few options. If you’d like more, I can post more, or you can find some online if you search for them. You made my day for asking me about this, by the way! Hope these help you out.

camojito replied to your post:camojito replied to your post: so what’s the cure…

It’s gonna take a few days, but the aloe Vera will definitely cool it down and soften the pain. Keep applying aloe and moisturizer until your skin doesn’t feel hot. (I literally burn in 5 minutes of direct sunlight so I know how to treat burns ^_^)

>.> meanwhile I thought I got every area covered with enough sunblock

gothamvillaininsider asked:

I'd imagine he'd smell like blood on most days.

blood, yes. the used bandages some days like the prev anon said. but only days when he operates on others or himself or is healing.

i feel that he would smell very much like sterile hospital smells and latex some days for the same reasons

he doesn’t wear anything too smelly i think because hospitals are very particular about that. people can be allergic or otherwise sensitive to smells that are strong. i think he would use aloe vera and other noninvasive smells like shower fresh or fresh linens too. maybe other organic smells that won’t elicit reactions and are subtle.

So with the aloe vera I made a hair treatment, and the rest went to the fridge for my brother’s burn.

The hair treatment had 2 egg yokes, a big chunk of aloe vera and the juice of one lemon, it ended up quite liquid, and I had to let it settle so it wouldn’t leak when I applied it. The other time I used aloe vera I used mayonnaise instead of eggs and I liked the consistency more, but the smell of the mayo is gross so I like this one better. Now I’m waiting, I’ll have it on for about an hour or so.

I also cut my own hair today, about an inch (the photo is an after photo). I hadn’t had a hair cut in 10 months and didn’t want to go the hair salon because I didn’t want the hair dresser to cut too much, but the ends were dry as hell and they were turning orange, my natural hair is slightly more ombré than it looks in the photo. So yeah, I cut about an inch and gotta say it looks good.

Who else is a big fan of Aloe Vera Gel? I love the plant, not only because it has SO many benefits, but because it heals itself once you cut a piece off! I use Aloe Vera Gel for my dry skin and it helps tremendously! It re hydrates and smoothes my skin. I got curious about how many other benefits it has, so here are some benefits that I researched today.

Reduces eye puffiness / Prevents-Fade Stretch Marks / Hemorrhoid Relief / Intestinal Problems Remedy-Taken internally, it heals stomach ulcers and heartburn, and soothes digestive tract / Strengthen Weak Nails / Soothe Razor Burn / Makeup Remover / AfterShave-Shaving Gel / Cold and Flu-Boost the immune system.

Also, a long list of minerals, plant sterols, and enzymes / Vitamin B12 for Vegans / Energy Booster / Eliminating Dandruff / Menstrual Cramps-Spoonful of gel and a pinch of pepper three times a day, until you get relief / Natural Hand Sanitizer-Combine 5-10 drops of your chosen essential oil-30 drops of tea tree oil-1 tablespoon witch hazel-8 ounces of 100% organic pure aloe vera gel-Add several drops of vitamin E oil as a natural preservative to increase shelf life / Mouthwash-Mix 2 ounces of Aloe vera gel-3 teaspoons of baking soda-1 ounce of water, preferably room temperature-teaspoons of lemon juice-5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil / Regulatory Booster-Daily intake of 2-3 tablespoons of aloe vera gel will act like a general tonic as a mild regulator of the bowels / Cholesterol Lowering-Studies have shown that drinking aloe vera juice can safely lower cholesterol over time / Acne Treatment / Hair Detangle/Eliminating Canker Sores/Treating Vaginal Yeast Infection / Pet Care-Great cleaner for your dogs ears. It cleans, deodorizes,and acidifies your pup’s ears so they stay healthier / Reduce Pore Size / Relieving Arthritis Pain.

Long list huh?! & There is more! Plants are amazing.

❣ - An unpopular opinion I have:

I really hate Asahi and KageHina, Asahi is much worse though, I can handle KageHina especially since I knew people would ship it going into the manga and anime. But Asahi, I really, really hate him so much and I don’t know why I do, but he’s just ugh…Sorry Asahi muns, I know you all like him and I am perfectly happy to RP with Asahi’s my opinions aren’t my muses’ opinions on him.

☒ - A fact about the mun: Mun has had to use Aloe Vera on his head before after his scalp burnt after 8 hours in a lake…he has really thick hair and still doesn’t know how it happened.

☒ - A fact about the mun:  I tan really easily…as in I was asked if I went on vacation to a tropical island at school before after Summer once, I just lifeguarded a few days that Summer. 

☑ - A fact about the character: As for a headcanon fact about Kuroo, he is able to speak English, Mandarin and French. Lalala!, Polyglot! Kuroo and Iwa are two of my favorite headcanons. For a canon fact, he is friends with Kenma.

☑ - A fact about the character: Well you get Oikawa right now, as for a headcanon fact, he and Iwa take turns picking out their Halloween costumes . I do not care that it is an American holiday, they do this.

☄ - My opinion of you: Oh Perv! Anon, I enjoy you, all these other people get anons who hate on them or leave a random message that just is like, “Okay then…” but you, I actually have an Anon that I’m glad follows me and I have a relationship with, you are amazing and I love getting messages from you. I actually sometimes get upset when I go to my inbox and it’s an anon but it’s for my Oikawa and not my Kuroo because for Kuroo it’s usually you and it makes my day.

I just made my first ever activated charcoal face mask! It was a little messy but a lot less messy than I thought it was going to be.

I didn’t measure out the ingredients I used… I really should’ve because I made far too much! Just use equal amounts of the ingredients except for the tea tree oil.

Make sure your products are all natural and organic.
- Activated Charcoal
- Aloe Vera Gel (I used Sukin)
- Water (you can use rose water if you have any)
- Few drops of Tea Tree oil

Then just leave the mask on for about 10 minutes or until it dries and rinse it off :)
I think I am gonna use about a tea spoon of each next time… But I will have to play around until I get the consistency right! I have heard that this is kind of like a dupe of the dark angels cleanser from Lush.
