Honey is considered to be “one of the most healing substances on earth.” It’s been used for thousands of years to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions, both internal and external. It has antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.
Among the myriad uses and benefits of honey:
Topical applications: Use honey on wounds, sunburn, rashes, acne or for almost any skin problem. Honey promotes fast healing and helps prevent scarring.
Internal health: Honey is useful in fighting sore throats, allergies, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, indigestion and more. It also promotes a healthy immune system.
Nutritional value: A true superfood, honey contains numerous vitamins and minerals. It’s also an antioxidant and a great source of concentrated energy.
As with many natural remedies, health-promoting honey has been replaced by a range of other products and medicines that provide only questionable effectiveness.
And honey itself has been stripped of its healthy benefits through filtering and pasteurization. It’s almost as if someone doesn’t want us to have access to natural remedies that boost health and prevent disease.
The pharmaceutical industry doesn’t make any profits from natural remedies, so perhaps it’s no surprise that raw, unfiltered honey has become a scarce commodity.
At any rate, it is still possible to obtain the real thing and I recommend that everyone should do so. Natural honey offers an impressive number of valuable benefits – not only for survival in a SHTF scenario, but in everyday life as well.
