The healing power of : Honey (14)

Hé, Honey. I'm home...

One of the oldest remedies, of which western society is unaware, is Honey. A recent scientific study showed that honey worked well as a wound dressing. Honey not only cleared existing infection, but protected the wound from additional infection. Besides honey's anti-inflamitorial effects, it reduced scaring, speeded healing and stimulated growth.
Honey can heal sore throats, colds, coughs, ulcers, burns, and wounds , honey travels to the deepest tissues, transporting the chemical properties and the subtle energies of medicine to the cellular level.
Raw honey is medicine, but cooked honey is a slow poison. Why? In its natural form, honey is rich in minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and carbohydrates. But heat strips honey of most of its nutritional value and transforms the honey molecules into a non-homogenized glue that adheres to mucous membranes and clogs subtle energy channels. Cooked honey creates cellular toxicity and may lead to immunological dysfunction. It can also clog the arteries and lead to atherosclerosis (thickening of the arteries), hampering blood flow to the vital organs. So as a general rule, honey should never be cooked, and nothing should be cooked with honey. Instead, add raw honey to yogurt, warm tea, or spread it on bread or toast.
These days, most honey sold commercially has been heated and should be avoided.
Look for the words “raw” or “unpasteurized” on honey at a health-food store. But the purest form of honey is local and raw because it helps prevent (or calm) seasonal allergies and is full of prana (vital energy). As summer approaches, check your local farmers’ market, and if you live in the country, keep an eye out for roadside honey stands.
