    I eat it raw many times because it grows in the backyard like crazy. I don't know if it helps with irritated intestines. I cant say I have experienced irritated intestines wile eating aloe, but I have never tested it. I will ask some locals and get back to you.

    Not particularly, but it's worth trying anyway. When I drank aloe daily, I didn't notice anything wrong. As far as health goes, when you don't notice any effect, everything is going well.

    I can't say I remember my intestines ever being very irritated. I've been boned by a couple very annoying guys in my time, but I think my intestines were too bored to be irritated by it. Actually, they were pretty dammed apathetic to the whole experience. I will, however, remember the Aloe Vera if by chance I find myself on the receiving end of an unpleasant relationship anytime in the near future.

    Aloe Vera, gush that thing tastes awful raw. My family used it as a form of torture when I was younger. Anyway, Aloe vera has a tonne of medicinal benefits so I wouldn't be surprised if it actually helps irritated intestines. It has worked with relative success for me before in relation to other physical aliments so it's worth giving a try.

    I'm going to provide you with the link of an article i found about "How does aloe vera help the colon?" if you want further info.

    Hmmm... I don't know. I've never eaten it; to my knowledge, but I put fresh cut aloe into my hair and skin before taking a shower, than moisturizing. It makes my dark brown hair look jet black and shiney! I love it.

    As for edible desert plant, I've eaten cactus and prickly pears lots of times, Yum! So good with guacamole, salsas, or a cold fruit salad icon_razz.gif /drool* But thanks for posting hippie. I'm going to go guy another plant of aloe to try eating; after looking it up online for more info and recipes.

    Have you been screened for gluten intolerance? If not, you might try eliminating all wheat, rye, and barley from your diet to see if that helps. Also, demulcent herbs are the herbal remedy that would be prescribed for this, and there's a list of them on the Wikipedia page for 'demulcent'

    Slippery Elm and Marshmallow are the two I think of as being commonly used for intestinal irritation.

    Paradox I tried gluten free products for a while, they are really good actually, i was surprised. I don't have celiac disease but I seem to be sensitive to heavy wheat products like bagels which take time to digest.

    Does anyone know how long an open aloe vera juice can be used for? I have one sitting in the fridge for 2 months but I am not sure if it is still ok, nothing on the bottle about expiration.
