Remove Wrinkles With Honey

Okay, all you have to do is massage Honey all over your face! Just make sure it’s ‘Raw Honey,’ uncooked and unfiltered, meaning the vitamins and minerals naturally present, are all still there. In its raw state, honey has incredible natural antioxidants and healing potential. Organic honey is even better, coming from fields never sprayed with pesticides and herbicides.

So what will it do for your face?  (Ladies, you don’t have to tell your husband what you’re about to do. They may get the wrong idea). Honey is a fantastic moisturizer for the face and body. It has a natural hydroscopic property that will draw out ‘free water’ from interior tissues and bring it to the surface layers of the skin. It’s an almost instantaneous fluid shift that will create a healthy plumping of the skin, looking entirely natural.

Yes, it’s only a temporary effect, but you’ll be pleased at how it minimizes wrinkles and gives your skin an added suppleness when you really want to appear younger. Rub it all over your wrinkles and let it sit for 15 or 20 minutes. Wash it off and notice the effects. Leave it on longer if a sample rinsed portion of your face hasn’t given you the desired effect.

To get the exact right honey at wholesale prices, go to the ‘Site Sponsor’ box on the bottom of the right side bar. Click on it and go to the home page and click on ‘Honey.’ You’ll find lots of options.

Can a Honey Treatment Help Arthritis Sufferers?

Natural remedies may seem to be cause for skepticism since they may lack the sophistication and mystery of the wonder drugs that are so prominently marketed. But Honey has thousands of years of history as an incredible healing agent as well as a very rich food source. The great thing about Honey is that it isn’t a drug. And there is valid research being conducted on many of Honey’s claims to help with specific ailments.

 Do you know someone that has chronic arthritis? Let them try this remedy to see if it helps. If it does, let me know so I can tell others about its success.

 A study at the Copenhagen University (Denmark) doctors treated 200 patients with a mixture of one tablespoon of Honey and a half teaspoon of cinnamon powder before breakfast. Within a week, 73 were totally relieved of pain. Within a month, most all of the patients who couldn’t walk without pain, started walking comfortably.

Additionally, it’s reported that you could take one part honey to two parts lukewarm water and add a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Mix it into a paste and massage it on the itching part of the body, slowly. Any pain should recede in a few minutes.

Overall, it’s suggested that the sufferer should take a cup of hot water and add two tablespoons of honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon powder, twice a day. It is possible that you can cure arthritis with honey. There is some legitimacy to its merits!

 You can order honey at discount prices by clicking on any of the honeys on the ‘Honey-Go-Round’ on the right side of this site, or get wholesale priced honey from our site sponsor, by clicking on the little box at the bottom of the sidebar.

Bee Pollen Has an Incredible Ingredient I Just Learned about

Nearly 15% of Bee Pollen is composed of  Rutin, a glucoside (glucose = simple sugar) that is a product of photosynthesis and provides energy for every living organism.  Rutin is also one of the most potent antioxidents in existence. It is a molecule that is concentrated in fruits and honey. Rutin is a powerful anti-inflammatory for our blood vessels and capillaries and keeps our vessels free from hardening and causing blockages that can cause strokes and heart attacks. In short, Rutin is a protector of our systems from all kinds of cardiovascular diseases. 

What really caught my eye was a reference that Rutin can help provide a defense against excess radiation from x-rays. Perhaps that will even include some support from whatever impact the radiation from Japan may come our way.

To order Bee Pollen at wholesale prices, see the Site Sponsor at the bottom of the right side bar and click on it. Then click on “Home” and then on the left column, click on “Bee Pollen.”  It is recommended that you use granulated Bee Pollen, not powder or capsules. You may want to consider ordering Bee Pollen in the larger quatities in concert with a friend who’d like to share the cost with, to get the best price.

Honey For Your Heart

There are many suggestions out there on how to help your heart stay strong. It’s never too early in life to start feeding your heart what it needs, especially what it needs at the cellular level. One of the most prescribed supplements I see promoted is CoQ10. Just to refresh your memory regarding CoQ10, here are a few excerpts from Web MD on CoQ10:

“Coenzyme Q10 is found in every cell of the body. Your body makes CoQ10, and your cells use it to produce energy your body needs it for cell growth and maintenance. It also functions as an antioxidant. Coenzymes assist enzymes to help digest food and perform other body processes, and they help protect the heart and skeletal muscles. Studies show that CoQ10 can even help lower blood pressure. In 1961, scientists saw that people with cancer had little CoQ10 in their blood. Some research has suggested that CoQ10 helps the immune system and may be useful as a secondary treatment for cancer. “

In this Blog I’ve talked about the many positive health benefits of Honey For Your Health. So what do you think about a special honey that’s enriched with CoQ10? Special CoQ10 honey is available from Stakich Apiaries and you can order it, or any of a wide variety of enriched honeys by clicking on our sponsor link below, at the bottom of the right sidebar. Then click on Home and then Shop. I also found out that peanuts are high in CoQ10. How about having a piece of whole wheat bread with crunchy peanut butter and drizzled with CoQ10 enriched natural Honey! Yummmmm!

Your Honey Loves You!

Here are some of the uses of Honey that people have found to be healthy and effective. If you’ve ever used honey for any of these or any other useful purpose, please let us know. We’d love to keep up a running list of good ideas and further confirmation of these applications.

Honey mixed with a little apple cider vinegar is known to help settle a stomach ache, curtail a migraine and constipation

Natural Honey has been reported by many folks to help lower high cholesterol when consumed on a regular basis.

Researchers have been studying various raw Honeys after reports showing benefits that could help prevent cancer or even help in treatment.

Burns, cuts and infections are known to be successfully treated with Honey, dating back to ancient Egypt and used extensively during WW1.

Mix a tablespoon of natural Honey daily, with a teaspoon of cinnamon in case of a bladder infection and even bad breath.

It’s also reported that Honey mixed with ginger oil or ginger root juice, together with a dash of black pepper can reduce the effects of asthma.

 Throat congested? Look for ginger Honey candies – they can clear the throat from congestion. They will also help you avoid motion sickness.

Raw, natural Honey can be used on oily, acne skin. Honey contains natural nutrients and can kill bacteria that causes acne. Thoroughly cleanse the skin and apply pure, raw honey for about 10 minutes before rinsing. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon to 3 tablespoons of Honey to get rid of pimples to avoid scarring. Apply it as a mask for an hour before bed.

Energy – Honey is a great source of natural energy. It can instantly boost endurance and reduce muscle fatigue. Why? Because natural sugars from fructose and glucose are immediately absorbed into the blood and don’t need to be digested by the body.

Coughs, colds, sore throats – they’re all soothed by taking natural Honey either straight or in tea.

Many people, including physicians, have found that eating Honey on a daily basis has been found to cure arthritis and rheumatism.  Further, a Honey poultice on the big toe will eliminate the pain of gout quite quickly

 NOTE: For special Honeys already enriched with unique additives for curing effects, check out Antioxidant raw Honey, Ginger raw Honey, Green Tea enriched Honey and other enriched Honeys with Ginseng, Cinnamon, Ginko Baloba, Echinacea or CoQ10, connect with Stakich in the little advertisement at the bottom of the right column.
