Beat indigestion, ulcers and MRSA with the power of Honey

 

Itís a constant source of amusement to me that science is still catching up with traditional knowledge Ė or Old Wives Tales as the doubters choose to call them.

Every day a group of men in white coats announce that something we all knew to be true has now been proven so itís OK to start doing what mankind has done for thousands of years anyway.

Revelations about honey continue to make headlines for instance;

Professor Peter Molan of the University of Waikato has found that strains of Manuka honey can completely eradicate Helicobacter Pylori.

A big claim, right? But he's found proof for it. A preliminary clinical trial showed that ulcer patients who took 20 grams of Manuka honey four times daily, one hour before meals and at bedtime, experienced less pain and discomfort than patients who took a honey with NO antibacterial activity.

Hereís why you need to be careful about which powerful Manuka honey you buy

Honey has widely been studied for its antibiotic properties, which again our ancestors always knew about Ė right back to the times of the ancient Egyptians.

But now researchers are getting excited they are finding that honey might well help us overcome the threat of failing antibiotic preparations.

Researchers from Newport Rhode Island have shown that honey works in a very different way to antibiotic drugs which tend to target the growth of bacteria. In the case of honey the combination of hydrogen peroxide, acidity, osmotic effect, high sugar concentration and polyphenols kill bacterial cells.

This makes it impossible for bacteria to develop resistance to it Ė something that is being exploited around the world.

We're catching on here in the UK too. Manuka honey has been used on special dressings at the Manchester Royal Infirmary since May 2006.

Dr Nick Slevin, a specialist at the hospital told the BBC:
'Manuka honey has special anti-inflammatory and anti-infection properties and is believed to reduce the likelihood of MRSA infection.'

There you go, from the mouth of a scientist!

And now the bad news

Buying this powerful, but incredibly tasty honey, is not cheap.

Yes, it's more expensive than normal honey. But this not just a foodstuff, it's a powerful home health remedy.

I started looking into Manuka honey as part of the researching my best selling book Ė the Honey, Garlic & Vinegar Miracle. I ordered some myself back in 2008, and haven't been without it since.

I take a spoonful when I wake up every morning. It helps my digestive system. And it's a lot better for you than the honeys commonly for sale in the supermarkets.

But like lots of other commodities the price is beginning to rise.

We are just about to take delivery of the latest batch of honey direct from New Zealand and its costing a little more than previously.

In the past I have managed to keep the price low by buying in bulk and just absorbing the additional costs which means that we have kept the same price for the last three years, but I canít afford to do it for this new crop.

In addition the good old Post Office is ramping up the delivery charge and honey weighs a fair bit which means it bears the brunt of cost...

...but, right now Iíve still got honey at the old price and Iíd like you all to get the benefit of real raw Manuka Honey, and the other varietal honeys that we stock before the price goes up, so grab what you can NOW Ė Click here to get straight to the shop

Here's why.....

Not all honeys are equal

Honey is a very complex food....

While 80% is natural sugar, the rest is a cocktail of magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate, vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3, plus small amounts of iodine and zinc.

However, most stuff you'll see for sale is, 'pure honey'. It's been heated to higher temperatures to kill micro-organisms.

This also means that it loses a lot of the vitamins, rendering it almost useless as a natural remedy.

The most common is called 'spun' or 'crystallised' honey. This is the most processed type of honey, and the least beneficial in health terms.

Manuka Honey hasn't gone through the high heating process. It also has all those extra beneficial qualities revealed by Professor Molan in New Zealand.

My recommendation is to order a few jars, and try these tips at home.

Five ways to benefit from Manuka honey

1)   For a quick indigestion remedy, try two teaspoons of Manuka stirred into warm     milk. Or even better, in my opinion...make a cup of Manuka honey and lemon tea, (two teaspoons of honey and the juice of a small lemon) adding some raw ginger slices and allowing it to sit for 10 minutes.

2)  For cuts and wounds, clean the wound area with a sterilised cotton wool or gauze. If it's a deep cut, use hydrogen peroxide to wash the surface. Apply honey on the cut as final dressing. Cover as you'd normally do with a cut. Repeat this process twice daily.

3)  For eczema and skin rashes mix two teaspoons of Manuka honey with two teaspoons of olive oil. Now melt two teaspoons of beeswax in a pan. Then mix with the honey and olive oil mixture, stirring all the time.

4)  To keep your skin glowing like you bathe in the fountain of youth every morning, drink a warm glass of water with Manuka honey and lemon juice first thing in the morning. This will help you keep your system flushed of toxins.

5)  Take a couple of spoonfuls of Manuka honey each morning to improve your body's ability to stave off serious illness and inflammation.

You can order Manuka honey online direct from the shop here. Make sure you check out the savings available with the regular saver option.

Remember the price of our honey will have to rise once we clear the existing stocks and if you donít take advantage, someone else will.

I have no hesitation in recommending this fantastic Manuka Honey as a proper cure-all for many health problems, whether the scientists agree with me or not.

Ah, yes indeed... the old wives would be sooooo proud of me..

Yours, as always
