I have always been fascinated by honey and bees, three years ago I started my own apirary in my garden, and produce my own honey - and I use it any where its possible and always looking for new recipes including honey
Hello!!! Ever since I started using this recipe I have not taken antibiotics for years for a cold or for my throat... chamomile tea, lemon juice from a fresh lemon and honey. You drink it warm at night. I recommend it to everyone I know and even to people I don't.
One table spoon at bed time - better sleep.
Have a sore throat. A teaspoon of pure honey will make it go away immediately. I found out today when I have a stomach ache, take honey too. Love it and I have always wanted to have a bee hive. My Dad taught me just ignore the bees and they will ignore you. Am a little allergic but I still love them and honey.
A few years ago my mother almost died from a severe blister lips. Her lips was blister with blood ozzing out. We send her to 3 different hospitals to see the specialists but all said she was fine and gave her lip gloss with does nothing to help. She couldn't eat normal food for days except porridge and lost a lot of weight, until we brought her to see a chinese doctor. The chinese doctor immediately knew what was wrong with her.....a weak liver and kidney stones! My mom had 2 operations to remove kidney stones when she was in her 50s. Her cure cost us only $4 (we spend over a thousand seeing western doctors), 2 bottles of cheap china honey was all it takes. And she recovered within 1 week!
I had a cracked skin on my hands in a couple places that has mostly gone away, the vertical lines and horizontal ridges on finger nails lessened. All this has been helped by using honey (raw & local) as sweetner for coffee or tea.
I visited the doctor and he sent me to do a blood test. I took the result to him. He told me that my Cholesterol level was 4.5 high. I went home and did my research on foods that can lower cholesterol level. I found out that honey was among them. I use honey daily. Six weeks later I took another blood test and my cholesterol level was lowered.
I've had allergies for years and I always got sinus infections every year but since eating honey daily for several years, I am allergy free and I haven't had a sinus infection for over 4 years. Thank you honeybees.
My father is a beekeeper and this year my husband took up beekeping as well. I use honey as often as possible and it is one of my favourite ingredients. Recently, I started using propolis. The first thing I made was mouthwash with propolis tincture and salvia officinalis (sage). I also made salve to treat skin problems. There are many things I need to learn about bees and their products and your site helps a lot. Thank you and good luck.
2007-September 2014, following return from 15 months in Iraq, nothing worked to help me sleep at night. I had had maybe a total of 6 nights of actual rest where I felt rested the next day. Military medical care had given me Ambien with disatrous results, ending up in ER. I did not believe that I would have many more years on this earth, largely because of lack of needed sleep. In two weeks now of taking a spoonful of honey before I go to bed, I have had far more sleep hours than the past 7 years combined. I cannot believe what a huge difference taking honey before I go to bed is having on ability to get restful sleep. This website--and Honey--is amazing!! I've just begun a beekeeping course, resultingly.
New to honey so I said why not try it on an infection I had and my Dr. was not helping. It cleared up in three weeks. Ron
I am a person who used to feel tiredness inspite of eating equal to what others ate. I eat more, energy seemed to drain continuously at same rate. I have been suffering with acidity, stomach ulcers, sore throat, burning sensation in stomach for the past few years. I became overweight because of improper digestion causing food to travel too fast even before anything can be absorbes from the food for energy. Body used to go so cold at times that I could see the skin turning red making the blood capillaries visible on the surface of the skin. How much ever I meet doctor, they merely give medicines to abate the symptoms. It feels like they don't seem to understand what you are suffering from. Staying hungry used make me to go depressed. In spite of following strict diet for months together to get rid of acidity, there seemed no hope.Having 1-2tablespoon of honey regularly solved my tiredness and stomach related problems to a huge extent. Light physical activity throughout the day over regular brought body under control. Although am not at my best, mind feels body's support in feeling healthy. Am able to do more work and take more strain. At last I can feel my body perform equal to others.
Hi, I follow the advice in your website for honey diet. I feel a good improvement in my weight loss diet. Of course to follw with exercise. Thank you veey much!

FMy husband is refusing to use vitamins and supplements. Instead of proposing another tablet or caplet he is asking me every single morning to make to a big glass of lemon-honey water. He says it's giving him the power, energy and strengthens his immune system.
I am intrigued by the health benefits of honey. So intrigued, that I now have two top bar hives in my backyard. So far I've done one Spring harvest and hope to harvest again this fall. I enjoy watching my bees come and go from the hive. Ive used honey for a number of minor ailments and its always worked!
I love honey and use it in everything as a replacement for sugar. Excited I found this website.
I love raw honey; I don't use sugar anymore. Ten years ago, my 70-yr old sister-in-law told me she swore to the beneficial effect of raw honey in controlling her athritis. That statement was the final thing I needed to drop sugar and embrace honey completely. (At that time I already had been using honey on/off for several years.) In one of our travels, I was served this wonderful tea after a Thai massage in a spa in Phuket, Thailand. I asked them what kind of tea it was and where could I buy it, I was told it was their own creation of ginger, lemon and honey. I was lucky to be living in Ashland, Oregon that period because they had this wonderful farmers' market every Wednesday and there was this local beekeeper who sold local raw honey at reasonable prices; I was spoiled. Now I'm in Cleveland, GA and am in search of a good source of authentic raw honey. I've been buying them from Ingles, Walmart and some little farmers' market when I see one. I prefer not to order online because of the added cost of shipping and handling. My husband is diabetic, I have convinced him to use raw honey instead of sweeteners.
My wife has had three surgeries to "fix" her nasal cavity, and her allergies. She has had allergies her whole life, she is Hispanic and never had a real doctor, so she took over-the-counter medication for over 35 years. That is until we were informed of bee pollen and raw organic honey! I have diabetes and take I am supposed to be insulin now, I took it for a couple of years but since I have begun juicing, and adding raw organic honey my levels have dropped to the point of when I was in my early 20's. My wife started taking the honey and bee pollen and within 5 days she had not sneezed, sniffled or had watery eyes. That has been almost a year now, for both of us! Oh yeah, did I mention the migraine headaches we both had for numerous years? Well not anymore! Juicing and raw honey is a life saver, I just wish my wife would juice more with me but the time will come. Thanks for being here for us!
Interesting: pure honey when mixed with blended thyme and mix together in a glass of hot water it helps memory.secondly mix honey with shear butter it cures baby rashes caused by diaper rub as cream. When mix honey with olive oil of the same quantity then warm it, it cures hair breakage. Practice makes perfect.
Jacob From United Kingdom,
How does she use the honey? Is it Manuka?
I was using bleaching creams and my skin had pigmentation, became dry and itchy... I went to pharmacy shops and bought everything but I didn't help me and one day my grandmother came to visit my place....she is 68 years but she looks like she is 40 years and then ask her what is she using... she said honey and I didn't delay, I bought it same time and the results where amazing and wish I can post before and after pictures... but please trust me and my confidence is back now... ever smiling.
My son has asthma, I've learned that honey can be used to prevent or treat asthma attacks. Now he rarely gets asthma attacks unlike before he used to get it about twice a month.
I am very interested in the benefits of honey as a means of changing my life style and large intake of sugar and sweet foods. After a meal I dash for chocolates or something sweet to eat. I have found that having a cup of black Rooibos Tea at night with a teaspoon of honey and a few drops of lemon and a sprinkle of ginger is absolutely wonderful for soothing my stomach.
I use wildflower honey instead of clover and it's much better in my teas and when I cook.
I started drinking honey lemon and feel awesome and energetic.
I used to take allergy medicine until someone told me try local honey. I use about a tablespoon in my coffee each day and have not taken medicine for my allergies in over five years.
Honey works wonders. It cured my cough and ulcer. It also stop my breaking hair after just two steams with it.
With 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, mix together, every day with breakfast, I am arthritis pain free for seven months already.
I had a severe infection on my little toes, nothing could get rid of it....infection caused by open sore due to blister whilst walking through a farm yard. The Doctor tried many different applications and eventually wished to send me off to have my toe amputated! I bought some live honey in one day it started to get better, in five days healed.
Thanks for sharing, Gena. Amazing!
Lemon and honey in the morning is so delicious, moved to a bigger glass...
I have been taking 1 teaspoon of honey with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water every morning as a general refreshing wake me up and cleansing routine. This keep my joints healthy.
1/2 spoon of honey in lime water keeps me active even after having busy schedules of work and travelling.
We love the golden fried banannas drizzled with honey and served warm or cold if you like. Cut up the banannas in 1 inch slices, coat them with flour and a bit of sugar. Not to much. Fry them in light oil until golden brown. Set aside on a paper towel for a moment then drizzle the honey over each of them. Use a toothpick. YUM.
Glycemic index level is well controlled when honey is taken with gooseberry. I am critical diabetic where my beta cells are almost exhausted and I depend on insulin only for diabetic control apart from high fibre diets(oats).
Gooseberries(1kg) slit on the sides is steam boiled in pressure cooker and soaked in 1000ml of pure honey for twenty days. Thus honey soaked gooseberries are prepared. I had taken 2 such gooseberry along with my oatmeal. The glucometer reading was 127. 2 hours after my meal with 2 honey gooseberry the glucometer reading was 130.
My normal medication before and after meal as follows:
Best wishes for diabetic control.
Honey has healing effect to my cough.
I will not use anything else but honey for making my homemade bread and buns. I have not bought a loaf of bread or buns in about twenty years or more as I do not wish to buy. The homemade is so much tastier and you know what you are getting with less cost.
