... I found A NEW CURE!!!
Oh aloe! You soothe my belly when its burny and acidy. You make the farts stop. You are not that expensive. And you really don't taste that bad.
After watching Meghan Telpner and her dad do aloe shots last spring, I was nervous to try it. The way they acted, aloe sounded really gross. I imagined it to taste sharp and tinny, like blackened toast.
Then I spoke with a customer at the apothecary about aloe. She told me that she takes it for overall digestive health. It cleans and detoxes the body, she said. Although she had more of an acidy belly than a farty belly, she claimed that aloe made her able to digest allergens like gluten and soy.
One voice in my head thought: Well, is that a good thing? The other voice in my head said: BUY SOME! BUY SOME!
Here - it was my job to sell her shit, and she sold me.
I bought whole leaf juice, no preservatives. That's the way to do it! And it didn't taste bad to me at all. It has a slight turpentine smell, but tastes like a weak liquor. The more I drank it, the better it tasted. AND the better I felt!
Shortly following my first few days of aloe juice, detox ensued. I got a sore throat right before my sister's wedding! But that came and went. My stomach always felt better after drinking it.
