      Honey is actually really good for you if you drink it in the morning diluted in some water.

      Works wonders like it has on you. It is a very poweerful sort of food for good health.

      Is honey the perfect food?  For some, probably--but not if you're allergic to it.  My wife and I (both) have to watch the amount, more of a sensitivity than a true allergy, but anything more than a level teaspoon in a cup of tea or some such, and the results are not nice.

      Yea, I have noticed a big difference too with my allergies not bothering me as much since I started to eat local honey on my food products.  Not to mention it is the best tasting honey I have ever had too. smile

    How is it good for the lungs? Would love some more info. I quit smoking about 14 months ago but am still having lung issues! (I notice slight irritation and quite commonly, a cough after strenuous exercise) I want to be back to normal!!! lol

      Drinking honey mixed in water reduces phlegm, should help you. Try it when you can, every morning and afternoon. May help your coughs if it helps reduce phlegm. Give it a go.

        Oh......that agrees with how it makes me feel....I can be stuffed up, as if I have cold symptoms coming on and take a tablespoon of honey and before you know it, I am cleared up......

        Thanks for telling me why it works......

      I don't know how it works, but what I do know is that I am less congested and feel energized......

      I smoked years ago, and what I know about that is that it takes time for the effects to reverse themselves....stay healthy, exercise, eat right, keep the right attitude and you should return to normal soon enough....big_smile

    This is total nonsense, and has absolutely no clinical evidence to back a word! I'm sure Naturalcureguy, another spammer is behind this.
    Hey, don't mention that raw honey can kill young children due too the botulinum toxins in it!
    There is NO mucous antagonism related to honey

      Calm down....

      We are not talking about clinical evidence and we are not advocating giving raw honey to children....all we are saying is that personal experience has resulted in feeling better......and, if you don't like Naturalcureguy tell him so.....I don't know anything about him....

      I know that my lungs are clearer and I know that I am energized.....big_smile

      There is plenty of annecdotal evidence to support some of the claims of its benefits, however, as already pointed out, by BC and others, become educated about all these things.

      I'm not overwhelmingly impressed with the medical community's findings regarding a lot of things, particularly the big pharma companies who list "cancer" as a side effect. SIDE EFFECT? So then death is also a side effect? I am more and more convinced about the need for more responsible research to investigate the healing power of natural substances, not cancer-causing synthetics that pharma companies produce.

      That's my two cents, having gone through horrific withdrawal from prescrip meds.

      Not in my body.

      Actually, it is not total nonsense and if you do seek clinical evidence you can find it.
      Have a look here for starters - good information, details of the experiments (double blind or not, number or participant, how long, methodology etc.) … mp;dbid=96

      We can then begin to debate the merits of the research (ie peer review?)  rather than make simplified statements.

    it is very good for you, but if you are pregnant, a child, or have an immune system issue, PLEASE eat pasturized honey only...

    You know really it wasn't so long ago that people collected honey from hives as a treat. None of our food was processed and yes people died but somewhere along the line we started processing our food to make it last longer and low and behold all these diseases started to infect us.

    It does make one wonder.

    Honey, if I remember correctly, is the only food that will not spoil.
    Honey was found in Egyptian graves that was still edible.
    3000 yrs + old.
    I use it as an energy source when working out.
    It is supposed to have antibacterial uses.

    Is honey even considered a food?  I've never scene or hear of honey as a potential cure to anything.  Very interesting information.

    Drinking honey with water is a very good medicine for diarhoea. It does really work. Honey is a very powerful food, we should all drink it time to time really.

    I don't know about it being the perfect food but it's up there on the list. Aside from its yummy deliciousness, it can be used to treat indigestion, coughs, colds, insomnia, headaches, minor cuts and abrasions. Will even sooth chapped lips! Always make my own honey tea concoction when my husband has a bad cough - works like a charm smile

    Well, I don't know about the health benefits... But, I love honey! It certainly improves my mood when I am feeling a bit low. smile

    honey works several times better if you mix it with water, because the effectiveness of anti-bacteria in honey will increase several times. If you want to try another product that is produced by bees you can try propolis. It has a magic i should say because it works so well and fast too in curing diseases. One thing I hate from propolis is bitterness. I cannot stand to its bitterness...

    Honey is indeed a perfect food and should be a part of daily life. I use it to sweeten my milk in the breakfast smile
