In the summers, if I was ever sunburned as a kid, I would immediately run to show my grandmother the patch of red skin and she would instruct me to grab the aloe vera gel to help it cool down and heal. I didn’t know the reasoning for it. I just knew that it was the remedy. Other instances would arise, when the aloe gel, became the aloe plant leaf. Again, I didn’t know why I just knew that it was the remedy and broke a leaf off from the succulent to tenderly rub against my skin and wait for it to do its magic.
Many years later, I was walking down a street in Tampa, Florida and I came upon a Jamaican medicine man and his food stall. His name was Cephus and to my surprise, he was renown throughout the area for his healing and detoxifying weight-loss serum of blended aloe flesh and filtered water.
As I waited for my platter of food and, listened to the stories of his healing powers and advocacy of drinking aloe vera juice for health, his disciples of healing began to approach, waiting patiently in line to get their daily dose. There they were, living testimonials before me, lauding the detoxifying magic of this frothy plant drink.
