Medicinal value of honey

Honey is said to facilitate better physical performance and
resistance to fatigue, particularly for repeated effort; it also
promotes higher mental efficiency. It is, therefore, used by both
the healthy and the sick for any kind of weakness, particularly in

ailments, particularly those related to respiratory irritations and
infections, mouth sores and eye cataracts. The traditional
assumption that honey made from the nectar of a medicinal plant has

ingredients is involved, mechanisms similar to homeopathic
protestation are possible.

I never realized that honey and cinnamon were so powerful. Thanks for all that info.

I was talking to an old girlfriend the other evening and steered her to this thread. She is into gardening and growing things.

She said her mom had a bad case of hemorrhoids and wondered if you had some simple cure.
