For hundreds of years honey has been used to heal ulcers and cure wounds. And it is now making a comeback in the form of Medihoney, a potent weapon against wounds and bacteria specifically derived from plants in Australia and New Zealand. Even mainstream medicine has opened its eyes on this one, and Medihoney products are now being used in hospitals across the world to do what antibiotics often can't: kill increasingly resistant and deadly Straphyloccus aureus (bacteria) and fully heal infected patients.
Medihoney is the perfect natural antibiotic because it has the right balance of sugar-this equilibrium both cleans the injured flesh and prevents the growth of bacteria. It is common knowledge that modern day antibiotics are becoming less and less effective due to overuse and evolving strains of bacteria. However, the bacteria don't seem to be able to figure out how to evade Medihoney.
According to medical experts and microbiologists Medihoney has the following benefits:
- Protects the body against bacteria resistant to drugs
- Protects wounds against recurring bacterial infections or new bacterial infections
- Creates a healing environment in the wound that is characterized by moisture; consequently new cells have a chance to grow and thrive
- Helps remove dead tissue in the wound
Medihoney is also a wonder treatment because it can be used at any stage of the healing process. This is especially useful for ailments like bed sore, which are not always identified right away.
In addition to healing wounds and ulcers, Medihoney or manuka honey can be used to fight infections like strep throat and tonsillitis. It is also an excellent weapon against the common cold and the flu. Even if you aren't sick or suffering, drinking a glass of warm water with lemon and honey is a good way to detox your system and flush out any harmful substances that could cause damage to your health in the future.
Medihoney and manuka honey provide a point of intersection in the alternative and mainstream medical communities, something that doesn't seem to happen all too often these days. Thus it can only benefit you to have some of this medically powerful substance on hand. Take it on trips or keep it in your home. You never know when infection or injury will strike, and it is always good to have one of nature's most powerful healers as nearby as possible. It is no exaggeration-Medihoney is indeed a magical thing.
