    The Healing Properties of Honey

    Interesting that as medical technology races to find the next "cure" that may kill you anyway, a growing amount of research is taking the more natural road less traveled and finding impressive results, not unlike a bandage made from shrimp shells that promotes clotting.

    Along those same lines, researchers in the UK are testing the effect of a particular kind of honey made only in New Zealand on 60 patients suffering from mouth and throat cancer to promote healing and limit their risk of contracting bacterial infections resistant to antibiotics.


    This avenue certainly makes great sense, particularly in light of Australian research that, among other results, found honey hastened the healing of 15 mothers after Caesarean sections, eradicating any need to restitch their wounds.


    The specific kind of honey British researchers are using, produced by bees who feed on Manuka bushes, believed to have special anti-infection and anti-inflammatory properties. Time will tell if honey produced in a far away land or in your back yard will have any real value, however.
    If you're considering using honey to treat a condition, it should be raw honey, but be very, very careful about it and use it only in moderation.

    I knew this that Honey has all kind of good properties, but what I find fasinating is the usage it has/had in the Indo-European cultures, especially the Northern one.

    Here is some more info on Honey that has to do with Ido-Euro and Northern Euro culture:

    http://www.musaios.com/ash.htm

    "It was an ancient Germanic belief that the moon was supposed to be a huge cup, filled with honey and mead; and the stars were swarms of bees, whose honey fell to the earth upon the oak and sweet ash. The honeydew which settled over the mighty sacred ash, Ygdrasil (representing the tree of the Universe), nourished the bees. The well of Ymir, the source of all wisdom, was under this tree and Odin pawned one of his eyes to obtain a drink from it.

    The sweet ash which was believed to feed the bees with honey-dew had noteworthy significance in all mythologies. The word ash (in Latin melia, mel = honey) is derived from the Norse aska, meaning, man. Odin fashioned the first man from this tree."
    http://www.honey-health.com/honey-53.shtml

    "The Norns of Hela sprinkle the great ash-tree each morning with precious mead from Urd's fount of life, so that its leaves may ever be green. Thence comes the honey-dew, which drips upon the world and is stored by the bees. And in Urd's fountain are the two mystic" http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/tml/tml07.htm

    Honey is very good for dogs.

    They love the taste and it's good for their insides too.

    One of the cats ate some once but the others aren't that keen.

    There is always something new and wonderful to learn about nature.
    Couldn't agree more!

    Why torture animals to find artificial means to keep people healthy when the answers are all outside??? :
    "Only through a re-integration of Humanity into the whole of Nature can our People be made stronger."

    Why should you drink honey water every day for 1 month?


    As long as you drink a glass of water mixed with honey every day, not only will your liver function, immune system, intestinal tract change dramatically, but other organs will also benefit greatly. Honey can be said to be a special gift of nature for human health. Because of the hard work of bees, we can drink sweet honey at any time, always available and easy to buy, convenient to use.


    Not only that, if we consider honey as a basic drink for daily use, not only brings a delicious sweet taste, but also has a very high nutritional value. If we can persevere to drink a glass of honey water every day, after a month, you will find incredible changes in the body. Now, let's take a look at the benefits of drinking this drink regularly.

    Why should drink honey water regularly?

    1. Protect the liver


    Our body is like a machine that operates around the clock, and long working hours can cause it to wear out, deteriorate its functioning over time, and also deteriorate if not cared for. Care and maintenance carefully.
    The liver is responsible for the detoxification and metabolic function of the human body. If this vital organ is not maintained and maintained, liver damage will easily occur, which will affect our physical health.
    Honey water is rich in minerals and pectin, which is good for the body. As long as we can persevere to drink one glass a day, our liver will be nourished, maintain normal functioning, reduce toxins in the body and perform smooth and convenient metabolism.

    2. Improve immunity


    In addition to a range of valuable enzyme elements, honey also contains vitamins and other nutrients. Drinking a glass of honey water every day can improve our body's ability to fight off viruses, build a body's immune wall and reduce our chances of getting sick. So, no matter how busy our daily lives are, we have to remember to drink a glass of honey water.

    3. Maintain oral health


    When we don't talk or sleep for a long time, our saliva production decreases. As the bactericidal fluid decreases, a large number of bacteria multiply and multiply in the mouth. Honey is called a natural germicide by health experts, so drinking water with honey or putting a little honey in your mouth at this time can not only effectively inhibit the bacteria but also Eliminate bad breath.


    4. Nourish intestines


    Honey water contains large amounts of fructose, which can be easily absorbed by our intestines, making the intestinal tract more moist and smooth. Drinking a glass of honey water every day can effectively solve the problem of constipation and help us defecate a lot more smoothly.


    Why should you drink honey water every day for 1 month ...04 XII 2019.


    Best Honey I have had so far: September I brought back from Bosnia 10 large jars of pure Organic Honey, 90 euros and 25 euros carriage.

    Worth every cent.
