A Loei - plant, which passed around and still runs so many legends, which even some doctors tell these myths, the plant is one whose name is strongly associated in our health, plant, which almost everyone whowith him ever encountered in the medical purposes, we tend to assume a panacea for many, many illnesses, the only means of rejuvenation and longevity.How to separate fact from fiction?What to believe and what to treat with caution and distrust?

aloe plant has been known for many centuries ago.Through the use of Aloe Vera gel skin Mayan Indian women on the Yucatan Peninsula remained soft and supple for a long time.Indians of North and South America prized for its ability of aloe to treat burns and prevent blisters.There is a legend according to which tribe simenolov Indians for centuries inhabited the present territory of Florida, described the invigorating "fountain of youth" is "Vodice" flowing from the center of the cut leaves of Aloe vera.

For a long time it was believed that aloe brings goo

d luck and avert Satan.Hundreds of years ago, Africans were hung over the doors of their huts bundles of Aloe vera in the hope that the plant will frighten the spirits of devils, and not allow them to invade the home.Today, Egyptians attached aloe over the entrance to their modern houses as a symbol of hope and a sign of good luck to those who live in them.

In Mexico, clay pots and vases with growing them aloe put at the door of the house with the aim to inspire people to good feelings and provide them with good intentions.Moreover, Mexican businessmen aloe suspended over the entrance to their offices, believing that through this the visitor will bring them a really good deal and profitable partnership.

In some countries the aloe plant is wrapped in shiny foil and hand this kind of bouquet the bride and groom.As long as the plant continues to throw the arrow and give the new shoots, couples will have good luck in marriage.

Aloe vera has a truly unique vitality.After most of the plants being without water for a few days it starts to fade, but it in no way relates to the aloe.Moreover, when it is uprooted from the land, the large outer leaves die, but the water of which flows to the center of the plant, giving life to new shoots.Aloe vera can be without water for up to seven years, still sprout.Is not it a miracle?

Various types of aloe cultivated indoors, popular in folk medicine.This is evidenced by the everyday name of the plant - "doctor".

Interestingly, traditional medicine recommends to use the leaves do not water the aloe for twenty days, which makes the plant to artificial adverse conditions, and thereby accelerates the synthesis of stimulants.

In the late 40's - early 50's, doctors have raised the question about the possibility of the use of aloe in treating radiation skin lesions of varying severity.The first extensive clinical tests on white rats conducted by Professor T. Rowe (USA).He has developed a variety of recipes cooking curative extracts of aloe, including fresh jelly, jelly solutions with varying degrees of dilution, svezhesnyatuyu skin with aloe leaves, the dried peel and flower leaves Aloe vera.

T. Rowe studies have convincingly demonstrated that aloe vera is a highly effective therapeutic agent.Time of healing of skin ulcers caused by X-ray irradiation significantly reduced;using ointments aloesoderzhaschih scar on the skin tissue was virtually invisible.Subsequently, similar to the results of the doctors came in other countries, to conduct experiments on the treatment of severe burns and developing gangrene of the extremities.

Chronic rentgenodermatite head compresses of juice freshly cut aloe soothe the pain after a few weeks of regular use of aloe comes complete regeneration of tissue in the affected areas was also observed restoration of sensitivity, pigmentation and hair growth in these areas.

However, further study of various properties of the plant showed that produced from the leaves of aloe preparations suitable for the treatment only for a short time.This is because the nature of the aloe juice is quite diverse.This circumstance substantially complicates the preservation process, and hence limits the application of a manufactured product, which usually must have a certain shelf life.

It should be noted, proposals for improving the conservation method aloe nobody put forward.Practitioners with great regret that after several days of ointment containing in its composition of Aloe Vera gel, irrespective of whether it was stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator was, began to decompose and lose their healing power.

failures that followed when attempting preservation of aloe, as well as the development of new methods of treatment of various diseases with the help of potent medication contributed to the almost total disruption of interest in aloe, causing a sense of futility and frustration in the legitimacy of its therapeutic use.

However, in the late 60-ies of XX century in connection with the development of methods for concentration and stabilization of the Aloe Vera gel to it start to show increased attention again.Stabilization prevents a decrease chemical activity of the plant, increasing the term of pharmaceutical storage and its effectiveness.

In today's world it is difficult to imagine human life without drugs.But often people forget that, to use drugs, very risks: the most inopportune moment in his organism may show undesirable side effects, as most modern drugs are based on active chemicals.

On the other hand, clinical studies have shown that people who use aloe products, receive the same quality treatment as well as in the treatment of appropriate medicines, but at the same time they do not put themselves at risk of acquiring new diseases or face very unpleasant for the bodycontraindication.

Many experts on the cultivation of aloe argue that effective healing properties have only plants, leaf length up to meters.It could easily be used in the home and more stunted bushes.Growing plants in a pot inevitably leads to its reduction, the so-called dwarfism, so aloe at all desire can not achieve the size that they would have had when planting in open ground.
