Description

About La sábila

The basis of a multimillion-dollar industry of health and beauty products, aloe vera has long been known for its healing attributes. Recently it has attracted the interest of the scientific and medical communities who are studying the plant and its powerful regenerative properties. Externally, aloe vera is used to expedite the healing of burns and other injuries, rejuvenate and soften skin and hair, relieve joint and muscle pain, and help control acne. It is commonly used by physicians to heal serious burn injuries and by dentists, dermatologists, and optometrists to reduce swelling and inflammation. Internally, aloe is effective as a treatment for constipation, stomach ulcers, arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, and a host of other health problems. 

In this book, the author discusses the properties of aloe vera and explains why it is effective in healing. She also explores the ways the plant has been used throughout history by cultures as diverse as the ancient Egyptian and Native American.

LA SÁBILA (Aloe Vera)
Suavizante y curativo natural

Las milagrosas cualidades curativas del aloe vera, o la sábila, han cuatro mil años.  Hoy, esta planta es la base de una industria multimillonaria de complementos alimenticios, auxiliares para la belleza y cremas medicinales, y las comunidades médicas y científicas estudian sus potentes propiedades regeneradoras.

En su uso externo, el aloe vera apresura la curación de cortadas y quemaduras, rejevenece y suaviza la piel y el cabello, alivia los dolores musculares y de las coyunturas, y ayuda a controlar el acné.  Los médicos lo usan para curar lesiones térmicas serias y los desntistas, dermatólogos y optometristas para reducir la hinchazón e inflamación.  Internamente, el aloe es eficaz en el tratamiento del estreñimiento, las úlceras estomacales, la artritis, la diabetes, la presión alta y toda una serie de problemas de salud.

Diane Gage cita estudios e investigaciones recientes y presenta una perspectiva equilibrada de las virtudes de esta planta asombrosa.  Habla de las propiedades biológicas de la sábila, explica su capacidad curativa y describe las distintas aplicaciones que le han dado diferentes culturas como la egipcia, la árabe o la de los indios americanos.  Este libro, lleno de consejos sobre cómo cultvar el aloe o cultivarlo en casa, proporciona al lector todo lo que necesita saber acerca del curativo natural de nuestro planeta.
