Cephas Tells His Stories of Aloe For Health!

Seeing as how you have got to hear this man speak about health, we decided to start his page with a video he has done.


Cephas has a way about him that many should follow. Not just in his knowledge of the Aloe Vera Plant used both internally and external for health, but in his kind nature of giving more than he receives. His smile is contagious and his manner courageous. Living life head on with many a tail of his journey. This man has a way of making all who know him feel good about life and with a pursuit to happiness.

Many who have come to know Cephas have praised him for his help with their health and well-being. Many with health problems, such as diabetes, over weight, kidney stones, acne, skin problems, fertility, vaginal issues, low energy to name a few. All of which are costing thousands of dollars to deal with through traditional medicines and surgeries, when in fact a cheap, simple plant has help so many. Truth be told, this man is blessed to be praised by so many! May his word help all who need hear him tell of “Aloe For Health”.

1997? My friend went to USF and found this place and brought me in for the first time. I have stopped by every time I’m in Tampa since then.

2008 or so. Stopped in a few weeks ago after 7 years away and Cephas still remembered me!

It was 2010 when we moved across the street and Cephas became the best neighbor we’ve ever had. The first thing I saw was a sign placed in the abundant greenery outside his shop saying that respect is due whether you are black or white. He has lived this this entire life and shares his love and kindness with every one. He makes fresh aloe shakes every day and extends his knowledge of good nutrition. Years ago, the big SWAT team truck pulled up in front of the Hot Shop. Worried that something terrible had happened, I was so relieved when they all came out holding their aloe shakes! His food is always fresh and healthy and you can do yourself a favor by enjoying a delicious meal. You’re in great hands!
