    Medicinal value of honey

    Honey is said to facilitate better physical performance and resistance to fatigue, particularly for repeated effort; it also promotes higher mental efficiency. It is, therefore, used by both the healthy and the sick for any kind of weakness, particularly in the case of digestive or assimilative problems. Improved growth of non-breast fed newborn infants, improved calcium fixation in bones and curing anaemia and anorexia may all be attributed to some nutritional benefit or stimulation from eating honey.

    Honey is said to improve food assimilation and to be useful for chronic and infective intestinal problems such as constipation, duodenal ulcers, and liver disturbances. Honey is also said to normalize kidney function, reduce fevers, and help insomnia. It is supposed to help recovery from alcohol intoxication and protect the liver. Heart circulation, and liver ailments and convalescent patients in general improved after injection with solutions of 20 and 40% honey in water. The use of honey mixed with milk or milk products is a very common home remedy against colds and infections of the throat.

    Traditional, but well-studied medicinal systems as the ayurvedic medicine of India, use honey predominantly as a vehicle for faster absorption of various drugs such as herbal extracts. Secondarily, it is also thought to support the treatment of several more specific ailments, particularly those related to respiratory irritations and infections, mouth sores and eye cataracts. The traditional assumption that honey made from the nectar of a medicinal plant has the same or similar beneficial activity as the one recognized for the whole plant or some parts of it. Even if no transfer of active ingredients is involved, mechanisms similar to homeopathic protestation are possible.

    Honey is used for curing the following diseases

    Dear Sunkan
    Thanks for the information on honey. I take daily 2 tbsp of honey with water in the morning.
    And honey mixed with clove powder is also very good for the toothache, as I have tried this on myself it is really helpful.
