Sweet news on getting healthy
If you are looking for ways to get healthy without depriving your taste buds I have got some sweet news for you. With all the talk about sweeteners and which ones are the best, consider the health benefits. I always go back to having foods as close to the way God put them here as possible.
Honey in its raw form has amazing health benefits and tastes great as well. The bible talks about honey and it is known for its healing properties from the inside out. It is very important that you find local raw honey, because after it is processed it looses its value as a nutritional powerhouse.
Honey is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal. It can be used at the very first signs of a cold or flu like symptoms to help combat illnesses and lessen the duration. For blocked sinuses you can use a teaspoon of honey in a small pot of hot water then cover your head with a towel and inhale. You can also help alleviate allergies by taking a few teaspoons a day and can make a hot tea with honey and raw apple cider vinegar.
Honey is also a good expectorant and is anti-inflammatory so is effective with coughs and sore throats. I have personally used honey and lemon which can be soothing with coughs and colds. It also strengthens immune function with a host of antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and minerals.
The b-vitamins in honey make it a wonderful energy booster for those who are in need of an extra pep in your step. In addition to all honeys miraculous healing properties internally it has just as many for the skin. I use it for a mask and it leaves my skin feeling amazing.
Honey can also be used to treat acne. Soak gauze in the honey and water and put on the acne then cover with a bandade to keep in place. You can research and see before and after photos where this is as effective as any acne treatment I have seen and it has no side effects.
Like all good things you use honey in moderation. Look for those in your area who have their own bees and can sell it directly to you for the best price. I buy it by the gallon to save money. Make honey a replacement for sugar and get healthy at the same time. Please leave a comment and share. I love hearing your testimonies! To your health,
