Medicinal Honey

February 19, 2015

On a cold winter day in Toronto, there's nothing that I enjoy more than a cup of decaf tea with lemon & honey.  But there's so much more to honey than it's sweet soothing flavour!  As a Naturopath, I'm always looking for effective natural alternatives and honey is one that I use.


Honey has many medicinal qualities:


  • Honey improves night time coughs in children, according to the journal American Famiy Physician

  • Honey combined with coffee was shown to be better than oral steriod for persistent coughs in adults, according to the journal Primary Care Respirology

  • Honey can speed wound healing in diabetics, according to the journal International Wound Journal

  • Honey has been shown to kill antibiotic resistant MSRA, according to the journal European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases


Please note:  Children under 1 year old should not be given honey.

Medical grade honey is necessary to help with wound care.
