Here we are in the middle of springtime, everything is blooming, and the bees are busy pollinating, and making their sweet honey. Meanwhile, everything seems easy breezy, but for those who suffer allergies, it is more like sneezy wheezy! Don’t worry; we have the scoop on what you need to know about that golden sticky sweet honey!
Benefits of Raw Honey
Some say sugar is sugar and that may be true in the case of pasteurized honey where all the essential natural nutrients, natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other nutrients have been destroyed through heat but what other sugars are there that have the healing benefits of raw honey? There are none next to this golden sweetie!
Raw honey has been used by the ancient world in healing for centuries. Today it is still being used outside of culinary needs such as in skin care, hair care and treatments including allergies. More and more people are starting to go back to more natural remedies as in the old days. Probably because the over-the-counter (OTC) and prescriptions medications called antihistamines have their own side effects like drowsiness, dry nasal cavities, anxiety and more. When you want to enjoy springtime without a runny nose, scratchy throat, and teary eyes, why would anyone want to risk or trade those symptoms for other side effects?
There are natural remedies for allergies and sometimes taking a spoon of honey before the pollen season may not work…after all, you may be allergic to a different pollen. Is there any hope naturally when even raw honey seems to fail as an allergy treatment? Absolutely there is hope!
