Natural healing and health are within your reach just by enjoying one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind: honey. This golden elixir is a remarkable healing agent for all sorts of ailments. Even King Solomon said to eat honey. A word of warning.

One tablespoon of honey is about  64 calories and has no fat or cholesterol in its makeup. It includes vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and minerals like calcium, iron, sodium chlorine, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium. Because it leans toward the acidic PH level (3.2 to 4.5), it helps reduce bacteria growth and the antioxidant properties help it wipe out some free radicals. It takes approximately 60,000 bees and two million flowers to make one pound of honey. So, when someone says they are busy as a bee, they must be really busy.

Honey is a natural vaccine against allergies. The pollen spores used in production to help your body build up immunity to the local allergens you are allergic to. Always purchase honey made from the flowers and plants growing in the area where you live. Check with your local feed store or natural health food store for a market.

Honey is a wonderful source for energy because it is unprocessed sugar and, therefore, acts very quickly on your system. Add it to your coffee or tea and even your cereal. Use it in baking instead of processed sugar. Try to eat two or three tablespoons a day and watch your allergies lessen and your energy increase. The antioxidants are super-food for your brain.
