Kate introduced our speaker who, with the aid of a PowerPoint presentation told us about the plant, Aloe Vera. Julie talked about her own experience and how Aloe Vera extract has helped her overcome symptoms of M.E. It can be ingested or applied to the skin. Julie is a great advocate of its healing and soothing properties and she showed us the many creams, ointments and drinks that she had brought for us to learn about. It was an illuminating talk that demonstrated the power of alternative therapies.
