In the News "Honey Makes Medical Comeback"

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22398921

I swear by honey and lemon in tea at the first sign of a sore throat. I also use it against laryngitis. I had never heard of applying it to wounds before though.

How do you use it for healing? Any other honey uses to share?




I've used it for nausea and diarrhea. It's a tablespoon of honey and it helps both of those. It has to be not store bought though. It also has helped me reduce scars because it kick starts new cell growth. (I have a nasty scar on my neck from surgery Sad)

I've heard that it can be used for mouthwashes to kill germs but I don't know how that would work with all the sugar and whatnot.

Remedy for what?  Love my honey, so always looking for new tidbits on it. Smiley

Unfortunately they don't say.  Smiley Well, the hadith treats it as a sort of cure-all, but that isn't very helpful.

It has to be not store bought though.
Just curious, why is this?  In the US, you can't put additives in honey and still call it honey, so I'm guessing it has something to do with the processing or with being aware of the sources?  Or is it a more metaphysical reason?

And do you gather your own honey?  (That would be so awesome.  Well, it wouldn't be for me, what with the bee fear, but still...)  Or would purchasing it at a farmer's market be OK?

My guess would be that most store bought honey is heated quite a bit to make processing easier, which in turn destroys some of the benefits. (Not all of them: because of the physical structure, there are still a number of healing properties in there.)

Honey from a farmer's market or other small producer is more likely to not have been heated quite as much - or you can sometimes find 'raw' honey which is only lightly strained and minimally processed.

This makes sense, thank you.

Here´s one of my favourite drinks to get well when bit of sick or cold.

Hot Tea
Rhum 2-4 cl
Honey

Then I just charge it with healing energy and it is ready.

a shot or two of Honey liquor and black tea....so good for a chest cold and asthma.....

I've used it on my eczema (put some on the "dry patches" and loosely cover so the dog doesn't lick off) and it helps to moisturize the spot, also used on infected wounds the same way... I still scar if the wound is bad, but it heals nicely.

I have some locally produced cinnamon honey that works wonderfully for that.

It has to do with processing. They boil it down and do all kinds of other things to sterilize it. It kills the good bacteria and all of its properties. Farmers markets are great though. They're bee keepers who just harvest it and sometimes you can still buy it on the comb. That's always really tasty. You might be able to find non processed honey at a health food store..but I don't know. There was a bee keeper that lived the next street over from me that we always bought from.

(Well, I see it's already been answered...lol)

I've always been curious.  What do you do with the comb? Is it edible?  There isn't ever any bees, larva or eggs left in the comb, is there?  (sorry if that's a silly question, just always wondered if that happened or not.)

There are other reasons for not buying store bought like suspicious points of origin and antibiotic contamination such as in this case: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-20015516-504083.html and http://www.seattlepi.com/default/article/Seattle-defendant-pleads-guilty-to-importing-1305821.php?source=rss

I prefer local honey from the market because it cuts out the middlemen, supports small local businesses (as a partner in a small local business I can't NOT support my cohorts), and as others have pointed out is better for assisting with allergies.

I chew on the comb for a bit and then spit it out. It is edible, but after all the honey is out of it, i don't think it tastes good.
