Medicinal Honey


Research shows that honey has more nutrients than milk and  egg. It contains 40.5% fructose, 34.0% glucose, 17.7% water, 1.9%  sucrose, 1.5% dextrin and gums, 1.2% ash and traces of lecithin.  Honey is said to cure:

1. Cataract, colds, cough, sore throat, sinusitis, arthritis, and even athlete’s foot and pimples.  Taking in pure honey regularly may also minimize colds, cough, sore throat and  sinusitis. Chewing and finally swallowing honey soothes the throat and  nostrils.

2. Honey is also good for anemic persons or for those who have low blood  pressure. It hastens the production of red blood cells.

3. Pure honey contains lecithin which dilutes and dissolves the cholesterol in the heart’s blood vessels. People who are used  to eating fatty foods may likely suffer from heart disorders mainly due to  cholesterol accumulating in the heart’s blood vessels. When cholesterol gets  thicker, supply of blood to and from the heart becomes limited, resulting in  heart attack.

4. Honey can also be used as a facial cleansing cream. It prevents pimples. It can also cure  athlete’s foot, a contagious disease caused by fungus.  Before going to bed, wash your feet with soap and lukewarm water. Let your foot  dry and apply honey all over the infected portion and wrap with bandage. The  following morning, remove the bandage and wash your feet. Continue every night until your foot heals.

Pureness of honey: Pure honey contains 7.7 percent moisture.  This can be determined by using a thermometer. Another simple method is to use  an onion skin coupon bond. Drop a little amount of honey on the paper. If it  tears the paper, then the honey contains more than enough water and is therefore  adulterated. If not, it is pure honey. Also, soak the head of a match stick in  honey for five minutes. Thereafter, strike the match. If it sparks, the honey is  pure.
