Aloe … the health and healing plant. This unique book does not have the pretense of offering an exhaustive study of the virtues and powers of aloe. But this magic plant probably still has other surprises in reserve for us. A friend of mankind as are the nutritive plants such as wheat and the olive, aloe vera is indeed our par excellence medical plant.
In the United States, Russia and China there are millions of enthusiastic adepts and there exist many publications on the subject of aloe. In France, which was one of the first European countries to recognize its medicinal virtues, the mandarins of medical orthodoxy have long hindered the publication of scientific studies on the subject.
