Aloe Vera, the miracle plant

 As I walked my toy poodle Laila through the neighborhood, I happened to see my neighbor standing outside in his yard. I had been eyeballing his many Aloe Plants for months. I typically buy Aloe Vera leafs from the grocery store for $3 a piece..It's not unusual in Miami to share fruit or vegetables from your yard with your neighbors. As I approached, I said, "Do you make smoothies with your aloe?" He said, "sometimes, why you want to try one?" I gladly expressed how I would love to have one. He bent down to grab what I thought was one leaf but instead he dug up an entire plant and handed it to me. He told me it was worth about $25. I was so grateful. I thanked him and immediately headed inside to grab a pair of my gardening gloves to plant it. I rub the gel on my skin every time I bathe and also put it in my smoothies.

Aloe Vera contains anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties helping the immune system clean out toxins in the body. It's super rich in natural nutrients and fiber. Everybody may know that it's amazing on the skin but it also has a plethora of other health benefits; like helping to improve blood circulation and decreasing total fat levels in people with high cholesterol. It also helps to reduce fatty deposits and blood clots in the arteries of the heart and body. It decreases irritation in the stomach and intestines, repairing ulcers and healing irritable bowel syndrome by decreasing inflammation. It can also increase healthy gut bacteria, aiding digestion. Patients with diabetes tend to show the most improvement.

There are over 250 known types of Aloe. Make sure to use Aloe Barbadensis Miller if you plan to ingest it. Again, ALL ALOE IS NOT FOR CONSUMPTION.

As with any new healthcare regimen, it is always wise to consult your nutritionist or healthcare provider to make sure this herbal supplement does not interfere with your other prescriptions or over the counter medications.Ingesting Aloe Vera can cause diarrhea so I would start using small amounts at first, until you see how your body reacts and then gradually increase the dosage.

The name 'ALOE' comes from the Arabic word 'Aloeh' which means 'bitter'. And let me tell you, that's an understatement. It's extremely bitter in taste but if you can get past that and mainly focus on the health benefits alone, you'll survive and be on the road to either prevention or recovery.

Remove Pesticides by Washing your Fruits and Veggies

Many fruits and vegetables are grown with pesticides to get rid of bugs, and for that reason anyone in the health and wellness field will tell you to make sure you buy organic fruits and vegetables instead of that pesticide ridden produce.

Well, what if your budget doesn't allow you to splurge this pay period? It might be the first of the month and you have to pay your mortgage. Something's got to give, right?

I have great news! You don't have to suffer or feel guilty. Just soak your produce yourself in the comfort of your own kitchen using white vinegar and a dash of salt.

It's quite cheap to do this but if you don't have the time or the patience to concoct your own mixture, you can purchase a pre-made produce wash for around $4 at any major grocery store.

The vinegar cleans and the salt draws out any pesky little bugs, dirt and bacteria. It will also remove some of the wax you feel, especially on cucumbers.

Ingredients: Mix 3 parts water to 1 part white vinegar and a dash of salt

To soak: Fill a clean sink or large bowl with cold water; add in vinegar and salt.  (I use sea salt but any salt will do.) Then, swish them around to ensure all of it is completely submerged. Let them soak for approximately 20 minutes. Rinse under cold water and dry. (I use filtered or distilled water for this entire process because I don't want contaminants from the tap water to enter my produce while it is most vulnerable, during a soak).

Not all pesticides can be removed from washing, they are grown into the fruit/vegetable. If at all possible, buy these ORGANIC... Apples, celery, cherries, cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches, spinach, potatoes, imported nectarines, hot peppers, grapes, strawberries, sweet bell peppers, collards, kale, summer squash and zucchini.

FYI-*Some research states it is just as safe to rinse your produce with only tap water while other research contradicts that. I personally go the extra mile because it's hard to know what to believe anymore. I say, if you have the time and a few extra bucks, do the vinegar soak... if only for peace of mind.
