Medicinal Manuka Honey

by Wendy Myers

Studies have found that Manuka honey contains very powerful antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. Manuka honey can even kill antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria, a growing problem worldwide. It can heal a huge variety of health conditions. Make it part of your medicine cabinet.

What is Manuka Honey?

Manuka honey comes from the nectar of the manuka bush (or tea tree – tea tree oil is made from a different plant). This bush is indigenous to New Zealand and thrives in the wild, uncultivated lands of New Zealand’s pollution free environment. It also grows in Australia where similar honeys are made. However, true Manuka honey is only from New Zealand.

    old sores can basically assault a person’s physique just from thinking “unclean thoughts”. Even though individuals will go about assured what they’re going to, rest assured that your cold sore outbreaks usually do not come from any thoughts, very good or poor, but rather a clear medical explanation. The truth, cold sores are primarily brought on by Herpes Simplex Virus, nothing at all over that, no thinking of negative thoughts, merely a virus. Do not mix up Herpes Simplex Virus Sort 1 (HSV-1) that are cold sores with Herpes Simplex Virus Sort two (HSV-2) which can be the form which is related with genitalia.’

    Hi, I discovered Manuka honey about 8 weeks ago, I had a chronic cough and sinus problems. I am a singer so this was a huge problem for me. After a couple of weeks of taking the honey everything cleared up and touch wood I am still free. However I am a type 2 diabetic and I am reading conflicting reviews on its affect on diabetics. I have read that its a major precursor of advanced glycation endproducts (AGE). To be honest I really don’t understand what that means, maybe you can enlighten me because I really don’t want to stop using it.

      Advanced glycation end products are something that is made when you eat too much sugar. They age you and cause a lot of cellular damage. Since manuka honey does contain sugar it will form these. Any treatment has its cost. The question is does the benefit outweigh the cost? In the case of manuka honey the answer is YES!

      However, since you’re diabetic I would limit my intake of manuka honey to only when you absolutely need it. If your diabetes is really bad I’d avoid it completely. Topical application is absolutely safe for you. A better option for you is certainly colloidal silver. It is fantastic for clearing up infections and totally safe. It will not upset your blood sugar like manuka honey.

      The brand of colloidal silver I recommend is Live Silver. It is 20 PPM, and the particles size is 0.0013 Microns.

        Hi, thank you so much. I live in the UK but i’m sure I will be able to find it. I will continue with the Manuka only when I feel I need it most. It doesn’t spike my sugars so I feel it can’t be too bad for me to use now and then

        • Jun 2 2013

          GReat! If it doesn’t spike your blood sugar then it must work for you. That’s great because it sure is good medicine!

  8. It does effectively hold in moisture and protect skin, or any other surface that it is covering, from the external
    environment. Antibacterial; fights infections; provides acne
    relief. The best time to apply retinol based skin care products is in the evening or at night before going to bed.
