Stuff About Honey

I've always maintained that the best honey for you is local honey. I've been asked lots about Manuka Honey out of New Zealand.  It is wonderful stuff, and has some amazing properties but local honey will beat it every time.  For example, if you have an allergy to wildflowers, taking a local wildflower honey will act as a homeopathic remedy.  Honey from other parts of the world or country will not have the same effect.  Taken long enough, one could feasibly no longer be allergic to wildflowers.

Honey has been used for thousands of years for healing inside and out.  The Greeks used honey externally for burns and cuts back in the day.  Some few thousand years later 'modern' medicine is finally catching up...?!  Internally, honey can be used as a homeopathic remedy for such things as allergies.  Remember that honey is anti-bacterial and as such, bacteria will not live in the  presence of honey.  If you are eating it every day, what is it going to you system? Hopefully, get rid of any that nasty bacteria you might have floating around inside of you.
