Thanks for your reply. I did try Aloe at one time but I might have not taken it for a long enough time for it to make a difference. I have been on a low residue diet since my rectal cancer surgery, radiation and chemo. I haven't been able to eat any raw fruit, vegetables, salad or nuts. I used to be able to eat cooked green beans and carrots and canned fruit but can not anymore. I can't tolerate any dairy products or grains. I am going to look for a natural practitioner or a Functional MD. I appreciate all of your recommendations.
