Aloe Vera Expert Dr. Michael Haley a.k.a. Organic Mike Shares the Wonders of Aloe Vera

Optimize Gut Health and Lose Weight with Aloe Vera


Dr. Michael Haley Notable Quotes

“Fast forward, I realize now that there is scientific reason why someone who has cancer would benefit from aloe vera. Not making aloe vera a cure, because again, remember—we have to look at the body from a whole perspective. And in stepping back, why did you get cancer in the first place? Was it because you didn’t have aloe vera in your diet? Of course not. We got to get rid of the cause and make some changes and make the body work more like it’s supposed to.”
Dr. Michael Haley
