honey is an alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients.
Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey's benefits don't stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.
Take note of the bold faced wording. Does it not sound akin to symptoms of fibromyalgia? I began using a local honey in my morning and evening tea. I immediately noted a calming effect on my frazzled nerves and a sharp resistance to pain inviting symptoms. I wondered if it would aid the next allergic reaction I had to food or other environmental stimulus. Usually allergic reactions last approximately 20 minutes if I ingest a substance that is foreign to my natural diet or if my nerves are going over the deep end. Taking some common sense into account, I placed a teaspoon of raw honey onto my tongue and noticed immediate improvement. I continued the process every 5 minutes until symptoms subsided and I regained control of my sense I now never run out of this precious substance. It is utilized in all my teas and for quick relief when fibromyalgia symptoms arise.
Do be sure to purchase your own local honey to ensure of minimal processing.
