Honey has been used for centuries, not only as a natural sweetener, but also for healing purposes. Mixed with other natural ingredients, it can heal cuts and burns, cure skin rashes and acne, remove wrinkles. It can also be used for other skin problems like diaper rash, hemorrhoids, psoriasis, eczema and dandruff. Learn from Dr. Sears how to make an Ayurvedic exfoliant for your skin using honey.
Honey reminds me of romance. I call my dearest friends honey when I want to remind them how sweet they are to me. But I also use honey for healing. Ayurvedic practitioners in India have used honey for nearly 5,000 years. Ayurveda is a holistic health system that evolved in ancient India. The term combines two Sanskrit words to mean “knowledge of life.” It’s the oldest system of medicine in the world. And it is still practiced widely in India, where the government recognizes it.
Honey also has antibacterial properties. Could it be the end of the antibiotic era? I know I would rather put some honey on my cut then an antibiotic ointment.
