Swollen Ankles and Feet
(Auckland . New Zealand)
Q. - Is aloe vera a remedy for swollen ankles and feet? Is it also a remedy for poor leg venous circulation?
What strength and how do you use it?
A. - You asked if aloe vera is a remedy for swollen ankles and feet.
You may be referring to aloe vera gel.
Swollen ankles and feet are symptoms of aortic valve regurgitation.
Aortic valve regurgitation is defined by the Mayo Clinic as "a condition that occurs when the aortic valve of your heart doesn't close tightly."
First off, be safe. I suggest you seek the advice of your doctor if you also have these symptoms:
*Chest pain, especially when you exercise
*If you have an irregular pulse
*Shortness of breath
Don't take these symptoms lightly if you have them.
Submit yourself to diagnostic tests.
How to Use Aloe Vera Gel
As far as I know, there are only two ways to you can use aloe vera. You can take it orally as aloe vera gel or aloe juice...or you can apply it topically to the affected part of your body.
Forever Aloe Vera Gel provides your body with more than 200 bio-active nutrients.
What Strength and How to Use it
1/4 glass 30 minutes before breakfast and another 1/4 glass before you go to sleep means you consume 1/2 glass of aloe vera gel per day.
This means you consume around 1 liter of aloe gel in 10 days or about 3 liters in one month.
By the way, pregnant women should not drink aloe vera gel.
Important: Look for the International Aloe Science Council Seal of Approval on the side of the bottle before you buy aloe vera gel.
Aloe vera gel works in synergy with CoQ10.
Ask your doctor about coenzyme Q10, aka CoQ10.
CoQ10 supplements have been shown to improve the heart function of persons with congestive heart disease.
To avoid putting unnecessary strain to your heart, strive to maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Fish oil supplements can help you maintain a healthy blood pressure.
Hope this helps.
