Raw honey is amazing! Not only is it a tasty sweetener but it is a powerful in the "medicinal" world as well!
When I have clients with hives, cystic acne, and small boils I suggest that they put a thin layer of raw honey over the area and let it soak in a couple times a day. Many clients have come back saying not only did it help the pain but the swelling went down as well!
I am a huge fan of just taking a spoonful of raw honey when I am having a sugar craving or want a sweet fix! I don't feel bad about it either because raw honey is amazing for the immune system!
If you are prone to seasonal allergies, you should be taking local (within 50-100 miles) of raw honey as a supplement a few times per day!
You can mix raw honey with a fresh, organic lemon and it makes a delightful treat! When the honey and lemon are together, they can help to convert stored body fat into energy! This is great for people trying to lose weight or people who work out often!
Honey never goes bad either! It will only crystallize!
If you are hitting that 3:00 energy slide, take a tablespoon of raw honey for a natural energy boost!
Raw honey also helps with sore throats, ear infections, mouth sores, upper respiratory infections, strep throat, and colds. When I start coming down with any type of illness, I start taking spoonfuls of raw honey every hour. Raw honey contains bee pollen which is very beneficial when it comes to keeping that body of yours healthy. Bee Pollen contains beneficial fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and has anti-viral properties! No wonder it is known as the most complete superfood!
If your body is considered "Acidic" or you are having symptoms of your pH being too acidic, raw honey could be your answer! Raw honey is an alkaline producing food.
Raw honey has also been known to aid in sleeping, soothing burns, and being an antibacterial substance!
So don't you want to go buy yourself a big jar of raw honey from a local orchard, beekeeper, or health food store?
I might go take a spoonful right now... toodles!
