In 1995, Alasdair Barcroft established the Aloe Vera Centre – a London-based distribution and retail mail order business supplying natural health products. The background to how and why he did this are explained within this book and are a fascinating insight as to how a personal experience can change one’s career and life path.
His life and career are now firmly focused on and around his family and working with other people all over the world to help them achieve the enormous potential that he believes exists within all of us but is often hampered by a lack of opportunity and vision or entrenched views, beliefs and prejudices in society.
He and his family now have an international business with one of the world’s leading network marketing companies, which is also the largest grower and producer of aloe vera and beehive products. He feels that this association has, in his words, ‘set us free to develop our lives and our lifestyle in the way that we want’…‘and everyone, wherever they live and whatever their background, should have a chance to do the same’.
This book provides the reader, whether lay or a health professional, with an in-depth introduction to one of nature’s most potent healing plants. ‘Myth, magic or medicine?’ is a phrase or a question that has often been asked about aloe vera. This book firmly establishes the facts about aloe vera.
