Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.
Here is a little trivia note about honey:  Honeybees must tap over two million flowers to make one pound of honey, flying a distance equal to more than three times around the world.
• The average worker bee will make only one-twelfth of a teaspoon of honey during its lifetime.
Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada , has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:
HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat.
In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.
ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients may take daily, morning, and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon of honey and half teaspoon of cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.
CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.
COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.
UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears Stomach ulcers from the root.
GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.
IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.
INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.
INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘ ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.
LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase.
PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.
SKIN INFECTIONS: Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.
WEIGHT LOSS: Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.
CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three time s a day.
FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible .
BAD BREATH: First thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so that breath stays fresh throughout the day.
HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restore hearing.
Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!
I don’t know how much of this is true but I do love honey and cinnamon. Someone sent me this and I thought it was interesting how many uses they list. I do eat it several times a week or use honey as a natural sweetener. My sister takes cinnamon pills and they have lowered her cholesterol. I am told that honey made in your area where you live is especially good for allergies. Do you have any home remedies or cures for what ails you???

  1. I enjoyed reading your blog, I never knew that honey was good for so many ailments, will have to try out.Also thanks for passing by into My World. much appreciated.

  2. Great post, Sylvia. Very interesting information, especially about the arthritis cure.

  3. Sorry about calling you the wrong name, Judy. Apparently I’m getting so senile I can’t have two blog posts up at the same time without confusing them. LOL

  4. I love all the info on honey and cinnamon! I’m printing out all the info here so I can start making and using them. Thanks so much! Great post.

  5. I’m in real trouble with this one. I don’t mind the honey but I’d almost rather have the ailment than take cinnamon, even in pills.I have a nephew taking cinnamon for diabetes

  6. Hey Judy,I just had cholestrol checked and it was up a little. I am printing this and am going to try a couple of these ideas along with my meds.Very interesting reading.

  7. Hi Judy! What an interesting post about cinnamon and honey. I will try some of these ideas.

  8. I’ve been doing the honey cinnamon thing. I like it in hot water before going to bed. My daughter has been doing it for three weeks and she has lost 5 lbs. Sounds like it will almost cure anything that ails you. My daughter and son-in-law have bees, and an extractor. This year was the best honey they have ever had. Can’t wait until I go back to their house for some more.

  9. Arrests old age! Count me in!I love this stuff. Keep on posting and, as long as I remember to take my cinnamon and honey, I’ll be around to keep on reading your great blogs.

  10. G’day from Oz JudyWe have some special bush honey here which has wonderful medicinal properties. Active jellybush honey is made from the Australian Leptospermum polygalifolium tree which grows endemically in the North Coast of NSW, Australia (where I live). The New Zealanders have done a lot of scientific research on their own Manuka honey. This is gathered in New Zealand from the manuka bush, Leptospermum scoparium, which grows uncultivated throughout their country.Researchers say they have proven that even such infections as Staph can be treated very successfully. It is becoming accepted here that open wounds, such as infected ulcers in the elderly, are treatable with these honeys. Personally, I know it works!If ever I get a sore throat I dissolve half a teaspoon of the active honey in my throat and it’s gone almost immediately, not to return!I’ve also used it successfully on my own scratches and scrapes, and even put some up my nose (sorry)when I have the flu. This is so important today when antibiotics have become resistant and a problem in their own right.This is an interesting web site from the university in NZ that has been doing a lot of work in this field: http://bio.waikato.ac.nz/honey/special.shtml

  11. Fascinating post, Judy. My Grandpa, who thought all doctors were quacks, kept bees and took a big spoonful of honey, along with a big spoonful of apple cider vinegar every single night. (He was a great believer in a book called Folk Medicine by a Dr. Jarvis, I think). And Grandpa, who was a farmer, was active and vigorous right up ’til the time he passed away in his late eighties.Thanks for another great post!

  12. Honey is also good for cuts

  13. Great post Judy, Gosh you’re a mine of useful information.. where in the world do you get it from ?? I lurve honey and have a ‘massive’ sweet tooth.. Another thing I love are giraffes, I just ‘had’ to copy yours, I hope you don’t mind, they do say that it’s the sincerest form of flattery so I hope you’ll accept it in that manner. Cheers Kate x.

  14. Blimey, I have a memory like a hen – could you call over at my site re a meme that Jo passed to me. Cheers, Kate x.

  15. Wow, sounds like honey and cinnamon will cure nearly any ailment! I better get busy and try some! I have heard that about the honey from your area helping with allergies. It makes sense if you think about it. Interesting stuff Judy. I like both honey and cinnamon so it won’t be hard to try these. Reading others comments, I had no idea you could buy cinnamon tablets.

  16. Now these are things I need. Plus it doesn’t taste bad!!! Thanks

  17. We’re thinking along the same lines. I blogged about “alternative” health remedies last night. :DJudy, you have a fantastic blog and I’ve enjoyed each and every post. I’d like to give you the “I Love Your Blog” award. Please read my post for further details:http://beherewhenican.blogspot.com/2008/09/what-fab-day-thanks-to-anna.html Talk to you soon. :D

  18. Oh, forgot to mention that last night I had some pretty serious heartburn. I ate a bunch of ginger and made sure to suck the juice as I chewed on the pieces. It really calmed the burn down quickly.

  19. Hi Judy, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Just love your site. I’ve always used raw honey for sore throats and my mother used to make her own cough syrup using honey and molasses. I’ll have to try the tea. Sounds really tasty.

  20. Wow! I knew that both honey and cinnamon had medicinal uses, but not that many. I believe I will try that mixture for arthritis..And I don’t do mornings, either! So glad to be retired..

  21. I don’t know about the rest, but I tried the local honey and it didn’t really help my allergies that much. However, when I had the flu once my doc gave me a recipe for honey, lemon juice…from a real lemon, cinnamon, a bunch of other spices, and a good tot of whiskey. This was on top of a pain pill for the strained ribs from coughing, and some codiene cough medicine. After that I really didn’t care that much about the flu. I still have that recipe around here just in case. I don’t drink so…well, oh yeah…it was all good. :)

  22. Judy, my father passed away 2 years ago at 89 years of age, and had bedsore problems during the last 3 months when he was bedridden. One of the things that worked for his bedsores is a bandage-dressng of honey and tincture iodine. I used to do this dresisng-change 3 times a day for him, and it really worked. I checked with a surgeon I know, and he said they used a sugar-iodine mixture routinely for healing wounds . suranga(blogging under the name ugich)P. S. Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog!!!

  23. Judy, Guess what I’ve just found out… we have more in common than blogging … My married name is Gracie and my Sister in law who was Agnes Gracie before she married has been involved for a while in doing a family tree, she has just found out that one of her ancestors ‘Archibald Gracie’ was well known in Alabama – among other places in America. I’ve just Googled him … woweeee… The Gracie’s got everywhere – She had also been looking for another Gracie who was a missionary in China … and by chance found The American Archibald Gracie, Just shows you ! There is also another branch of the Gracie Family who had gone to South America and started some kind of Jujitsu… Amazing isn’t it ? Maybe us joking about being long lost sisters might not be too far off the mark..Cheers for now..Kate Barr (Gracie) xxx.I have just checked Archibald Gracie on Wikipedia – ***Colonel Archibald Gracie Born January 17, 1859Mobile, Alabama Died December 4, 1912 (age 53)New York, New York Colonel Archibald Gracie IV (January 17, 1859 – December 4, 1912) was an American writer, amateur historian, real estate investor, and survivor of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. He survived the sinking by climbing aboard an overturned collapsible lifeboat, and wrote a popular and valuable book about the disaster which is still in print today.1 Early life 2 Aboard the Titanic 3 After the rescue 4 Legacy 5 External links and references [edit] Early lifeGracie was born in 1859 in Mobile, Alabama, a member of the wealthy Gracie family of New York. He was a namesake and direct descendant of the Archibald Gracie who had built Gracie Mansion, the current official residence of the mayor of New York City, in 1799. His father, Archibald Gracie Jr., had been an officer with the Washington Light Infantry of the Confederate army, serving at the Battle of Chickamauga before dying at Petersburg, Virginia, in 1864 during the American Civil War. Young Archibald attended St. Paul’s Academy in Concord, New Hampshire and the United States Military Academy, eventually becoming a colonel of the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment.Colonel Gracie was a keen amateur historian and was especially fascinated by the Battle of Chickamauga at which his father had served. He spent a number of years collecting facts about the battle and eventually wrote a book called The Truth about Chickamauga. He found the experience rewarding but exhausting; in early 1912 he decided to visit Europe without his wife Constance (née Schack) and their daughter in order to recharge his batteries. He traveled to Europe on RMS Oceanic and eventually decided to return to the United States aboard RMS Titanic.There’s a lot more this is just a taster – Just shows you though !Amazing huh ? Cheers Kate x.

  24. Your blog is always so interesting Mom!! Love you-Anne

  25. Judy,Very interesting -the honey and cinnamon! I need to try it! Heaven knows I have plenty of ailments to work on!Junie

  26. I love reading your blog mom!!Love you!Leigh

  27. My husband thinks that honey is good for almost everything that ails. This is the first that I’ve heard of honey and cinnamon. It sounds like it is worth a try.Sweetie

  28. Judy I am a friend of Jeannie’s and found your blog on her site. I too am slightly senior (64) and am always looking for alternatives. Love your blog. Thanks for the information.

  29. Judy, Great post. This was in our local Sunday insert a while back. I kept the paper to hopefully try some of the suggestions. The last honey I bought was horrible. If my husband said it was bad, then IT WAS BAD. Maybe my next purchase will be better. We never seem to get out anywhere to purchase the real stuff from farmers. Keep up the good work. Love the looks of your blog.

  30. I don’t think honey is a cure all, but what does it hurt to take something that tastes so good?? I’d be happy to have medicine that doesn’t require “a spoonful of sugar” to help it go down.Yummy honey!!I’ve heard it is good for allergies, like you said, and for other ailments too. also, as well. I’m sure there’s some truth to it, and if not… I don’t care because it tastes so goooood. :-)

  31. […] using these ingredients.   I even did a post on the benefits of honey on this blog called:  CINNAMON AND HONEY, A CURE FOR ALMOST EVERYTHING!   I make it a practice to have a spoonful of honey every day.  I eat it on cereal, on peanut […]

  32. Great ideas – cinnamon and honey – going to have to try some.
    For allergies, one teaspoon of local honey every day and within a year allergies will be gone of much reduced. But it must be LOCAL honey, not the stuff from the grocery store.

  33. So, for diabetics, what do you call reasonable?
