HONEY AND YOUR HEALTH
“Nectar for the Gods“
For centuries, honey has been the most bartered commodity next to gold and silver. The idea came from the pure sweet honey mythologies, poetry, symbolism, expressions, religions, medical uses (cures and surgery), and miracles. Honey has been highly sought by all people in all lands since the creation of the earth. In the ancient Americas B.of M., Ether 2:3, “And they did also carry with them deseret, which, by interpretation, is a honey bee; and thus they did carry with them swarms of bees, and all manner of seeds that which was upon the face of the land, seeds of every kind.
In today's world we have ignored honey and its many uses and have substituted it with granulated sugar and artificial sweeteners. Every day we hear the horror stories and see the effects from using substitute sweeteners. If you want rotten teeth, a destroyed liver and pancreas, cancer, diabetes, and other problems, be sure to use granulated sugar and artificial sweeteners.
It is time to take a new look at Raw Honey in your diet. Raw honey is complete with all its enzymes, minerals, high vitamin content (especially vitamin C), and will store almost indefinitely. There are many types and colors of honey; some are better than others. Snow white honey is one of the most favored of all and should be stored in its granulated or crystallized state until ready to use.
Raw Honey in past times has been known to do many things including the following:
1. Raw Honey is simple sugar (levulose and dextrose). It helps build up reserves of glycogen and blood sugar in preparation for any feat of endurance such as needed by athletes.
2. Raw Honey builds hemoglobin in the blood to prevent hemorrhaging.
3. Raw Honey destroys bacteria such as typhosus, para typhosus (A&B), enteritidis, dysenteriae, suipestifer, coli communis, botulism, and others. Too much moisture or processing honey at temperatures over 105 degrees kills the enzymes and has the opposite effect. Processed honey is no longer raw and can carry botulism.
4. The "hygroscopic" (draws moisture) powers of honey are phenomenal and were used in the process of mummification by the Egyptians.
5. The sedative, hypnotic, and diuretic effects of honey are well known.
6. Raw Honey is very helpful in cases of marasmus, rickets, scurvy, diarrhea, and malnutrition because it contains proteins, mineral salts, and vitamins, which are missing in sugar.
7. Raw Honey has been used for the perfect sweet for children-the ideal milk supplement in infant feeding. Sugar is a poison to children leading to head colds, otitis, enlarged tonsils, recurrent bronchitis, bronchial asthma, vomiting, rheumatism, chorea, eczema and urticaria, caused in some cases even by a small piece of candy (ref. Dr. Ch. G. Kerley).
8. Raw Honey is a perfect carrier in tinctures and formulations for herbal medicine; it has the ability to assimilate faster than other liquids. Honey and garlic is the oldest known formulation.
9. The soporific power of honey has been used to cure insomnia. Other cures include gastric and intestinal ulceration's, gall bladder diseases, inflammation of kidneys, kidney stones, and diabetes. Honey can also be used as a laxative.
10. Honey is used as a food all over the world. Many recipes are available. As you study other cultures, the list for uses of raw honey continues to grow.
