  • Desert Harvest Aloe!


    I was wondering if anyone is taking or have tried the brand Desert Harvest Aloe Vera freeze dried capsules! i read on there website about their Aloe and IC that it has good results. Any insight I would appreciate!

      Hi, Renate ~
      I've been taking the Desert Harvest Aloe for a little over a year now and I do believe that it, in combination with my other treatments has helped get me to a more normal life. I do still flare but am still trying to figure out why. I did have about 1-1/2 months of feeling very good with only the Aloe, Prelief, Celexa. Then something went haywire and wham, back to Instills, Valium Suppositories, Pyridium and my favorite IC friend, my rice bag along with the Aloe, Prelief and Celexa. I will still continue with the aloe because something helped me tremendously and I probably slipped up with my diet more than the meds not working so once we get things back to "great" I'll be more careful I hope.

      Best wishes for finding what works best for you.
      Never heard of IC til suspected....Never knew so many suffer from it. Praying for a cure. I've found can you...keep the hope.
