The Honey Prescription

  • May 31, 2010
I remember as a child my mother gave me honey tea for my sore throat. I still use it today. It soothes my throat and the cough disappears. After reading The Honey Prescription, I not only see why this folk remedy works but that honey actually has a great deal of potential to be useful in a variety of other ways too. It`s cheap and easy to find with no side effects. Plus, it tastes good.

The Honey Prescription looks at a variety of studies that suggest that honey could be used as an alternative medication particularly useful in dealing with antibiotic resistant bacteria. Simply put, honey contains properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria. In this way honey could be used for everything from reducing infection on open wounds and burns to killing E. coli or super bugs.

The healing properties of honey are nothing new. As long as there have been people, there have been people eating honey. Not surprisingly, early folk remedies and medical diagnosis included the use of honey. The real question is why we are only just now trying to scientifically test these properties.
