Has Honey Helped You? Please Share Your Story
With so many great health benefits available, and plenty of home remedies that make good use of honey, I’m sure there are a lot of you out there that have a story to tell about how honey has positively affected you. Whether it be by improving your cooking, healing a wound, quelling a cough, or helping you to lose a little weight, I’m sure there is something you can share!
To start things off I figured I’d share a little bit about how honey has helped both me and my wife;
I started making regular use of honey around 5 years ago at the suggestion of a friend to help me with a sore throat I was waking up with every morning. I’d brew up a cup of black tea and sweeten it with honey and drink that on my drive to work instead of my usual cup of coffee. I noticed right away that it made my throat feel much better! I was amazed at how quickly and effectively it provided relief; I had been taking cough medicine regularly, beforehand, and never felt it did enough but honey seemed to have done just the trick! And it tastes a lot better too!
As for my wife, besides adding it to her tea regularly when she has some, she also has used it in combination with apple cider vinegar to help with frequent heartburn she was experiencing. Previously she had been taking prescription heartburn medication and not only was it not helping her with her problem; the side effects were a bit concerning. The combination of honey and apple cider vinegar worked out perfectly for her and she hardly ever has to deal with heartburn any more!
I could go on and on about the many different ways I’ve found to use honey! It is my preferred sweetener. If I’m going to be adding sugar to something, it might as well have some health benefits to go along with it, right? Honey fits the bill perfect for me!
