I've recently had the pleasure to eat Grecian Thyme Honey originally collected from the 1960s. It was partially deep brown and crystalline. The aromatic heady sweetness was like a beautiful dream that I will never forget.
I was a live-in caretaker for a woman on hospice care. She had a very deep bedsore that was defying treatment until we began packing the wound with medical-grade honey--it made a very big difference in a very short time!
I feel so bad for the women in my family. We do not know why, but only the women, no men, are allergic to bees, honey, or both. My grandmother to bees, my mom to both, my sister to honey, her 2 daughters to bees.
Too bad most of the "honey" sold in stores is just honey flavored corn syrup. I'm fortunate to live in the midwest where beekeepers are almost everywhere, I can get fresh REAL honey fairly easily during the spring and summer.
Local honey is truly the greatest, not only because of the amazing flavor, but it's produced from the same pollens that cause your seasonal allergies. If you suffer from seasonal allergies eating local honey will definitely help you out.
I can attest to honey's ability to kill bacterium. my late partner had dicubes (bedsores) and the VA gave me honey infused guaze to place on the dicubes. in just a few days the sores had dried up and healed....Hooray for HONEY!!!
He didn’t differentiate between most shelf honey, and RAW honey. Raw honey contains all those goodies, while the other stuff has been heated up and rid the solution of all the benefits illustrated in the video.
I know this video is very old but I stumbled upon it recently and wanted to share my medical honey experience! About a week about my Doberman pincher got ran over by a car and his back leg foot was completely degloved; meaning the skin was ripped away from his foot. I took him to my vet (my work; I’m a kennel tech) and my boss used honey to help the wound heal. His foot is starting to look AMAZING and healing beautifully only after a week!!!! I thought I was going to have to amputate it but we are able to save his foot thanks to honey!! :)
just a heads up, if you are in the united states literally 99% of the "Honey" you see in the store is NOWHERE CLOSE TO REAL HONEY!!!! So you will NOT see any of these benefits with that. even if its "organic" its not relay honey. your best bet is to buy local honey if possible, that will also help with seasonal allergies because you are getting exposed to small amounts of pollen local to you
Honey is not the problem; it’s the insulin sensitivity response of the human body..... always suppress the insulin sensitivity effects before consuming any sugar I.e. exercise, cinnamon, magnesium, chromium , “carb blocker” etc...
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
