alternative medicine for bulimia

by nicola

I began to drink aloe vera juice for my digestive health. Is this a safe product to use regularly

Hi Nicola,

Interesting question... One that I had to research a bit in order to answer...

I have never really used aloe vera - but have heard a lot about it - normally good things...

However, as I researched more about it I discovered that it has laxative properties and so if used for too long, can cause your colon to become less active - resulting in constipation and bloating. Which, as we know aren't ideal for people trying to recover from bulimia.

I'd say try to wean yourself off the aloe vera and use it a max of once a week if possible.

If your wanting to improve your digestive health or speed up your metabolism after suffering from bulimia - there are a number of ways you can do this... Click here to read more...

I hope this helps! Remember to stay strong and be kind to yourself during this journey :)
