My Own Experiences with Honey

by Sandra

It's very hard to count all the benefits that are provided by honey, not just in general, but in my own case as well!


I've been using honey as a natural sweetener (for tea) for many years now and in that period I almost stopped suffering from all stomach aches, and colds.

Controlling my weight is also much easier because the natural sweet taste of honey is far more acceptable than all the other sweets, that can't do you any good and increase your weight.

Honey is also good for children. When for example, my child catches a cold, instead of instantly running to the pharmacy to buy a medication, first, I prepare him pepper mint tea, and then sweeten it with acacia honey and mix in lemon juice.

Acacia honey has very light taste and that's why it is suitable for little children as well.

Honey Nurtures Me

I have loved honey since way back when.

I have loved honey since way back when.

Nothing soothes a sore throat quite as effectively as heated honey. Whether I take a spoonful straight from the jar, or as a generous dollop dissolved in a cup of tea, it not only does it help relieve my tickling and coughing, but it also relaxes me.

In fact, I have used honey as a sedative in place of a sleeping pill before bedtime. This can be very effective on an empty stomach, since honey abruptly raises the blood sugar level, which then leads to a "crash." So if you're having trouble getting to sleep, you might want to try some honey!

You could stir some into a cup of warm milk, perhaps, since that has a very powerful psychological quality we associate with sleep.

Finally, there is something about heated honey that just feels very nurturing. It's kind of hard to explain, but I know it when I feel it.

Want a toned body? Use honey with milk.

Basically you need to identify which is a natural honey and which is "sugarcoated." If you want to differentiate between the natural honey and artificial one then you can tell by the taste.

Natural honey never tastes “very sweet." In the case of artificial honey they use saccharin which makes it taste very sweet. One must avoid the artificial honey as it is not at all useful when it comes to health and medicinal purposes.

My advice is if you want to build your body, then you need to prepare a milk shake with honey, milk, cashew nuts, and consume it twice a day after your exercise. Surely you will notice the effect. I personally use this technique.

Apart from this I frequently use honey for coughs. I never purchase medicines for coughs, because it saves lots of money just by using natural honey.
