A sweet cure from down under
Sweet stomach relief
Let me bring to your attention yet another one of Mother Nature’s cures for what ails ya: Manuka Honey from New Zealand. I first learned about this stuff years ago, but never had the chance to really use it for anything . . . until recently.
Over the holiday break I came down with whatever “stomach bug du jour” was going around. I was doing all that I knew to do to find relief, even taking over-the-counter remedies. Nothing was working.
Luckily for me, I am surrounded by people in my life who think outside the box. One such person told me to try Manuka Honey. I just happened to have had a jar of the stuff in my cabinet for a long time. I never used it for anything because it doesn’t taste that good . . .
So I used it . . .
and it worked.
I felt better within hours, and within two days everything was almost normal. By the third day I was fine. Really cool. Right? I took one teaspoon three times a day, 30 minutes before a meal.
Where is Manuka honey found?
Manuka Honey comes from bees that forage on the Manuka plant in New Zealand. The plant itself is known for its ability to cure bacterial infections. The honey is used on cuts, abrasions and many other things, including the treatment of stomach and bowel issues.
If you are wanting to try this idea, make sure you get the variety of the honey that is organic and has Active 16+ on the label. The number denotes the potency of the active bacteria killers in the honey (so, the higher the better).
I love learning about natural cures!
peace and love,
