(1)The benefits of honey
“If you have a sore throat, take some honey. [Honey has powerful antimicrobial properties, which can soothe your raw tissues. Pour a teaspoon of honey into a large serving spoon and then top off the spoon with lemon juice. Swallow the concoction (without water) every few hours until symptoms clear up. Some people add a pinch of black or red pepper to increase blood circulation to the throat.] Due to its natural anti-inflammatory effect, it will help to heal the wounds more quickly. It also has different phytochemicals--chemicals found in plants and different foods--that kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus making it a good substitute for wound dressings. The taste may also take your mind off the pain. There is evidence that honey diluted in water will help with your stomachaches and dehydration.
Do you have a cut? Honey is a natural antiseptic. Medical journals cite more than 600 cases in which honey was employed to treat wounds. By applying honey to your wounds, you prevent infections. Honey contains antimicrobial agents, which prevents infections by killing the bacteria in and around your wounds. When using honey it may help to heat it up before putting it on your wound (caution test the heat before you place it on the wound). Many types of bacteria can’t survive in honey, so wounds heal, swelling eases, and tissue can grow back.
Honey may also be effective in the treatment of your ulcers. In Europe, honey has been used internally to help cure ulcers, particularly stomach ulcers. Burns, too, heal better with honey, studies show. The advantage of honey is that it not only prevents infections from occurring, it actually accelerates skin healing. Since the sugar in honey absorbs water it helps to trap some of the moisture so that the bacteria and other microbes can’t grow as easily as in other food…
If you have allergies, honey can be beneficial. If you eat honey that is local to your area, it may help prevent your seasonal allergies. Bees use the pollen from local plants and eventually it ends up in your honey.“
Due to the fact that honey is a predigested food (predigested by bees) it more readily is assimilated by people with compromised health. Among its many other properties, it contains vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. In addition, copper, iodine, and zinc exist in it in small quantities, As well as several kinds of hormones.

Bacteria can’t live in honey so it makes for wonderful wound healing. Burns heal better with honey applied, also ulcers. The use of honey in hot water can moisten lungs that are congested and also rehydrate the colon to relieve constipation.

Honey has been proven to have antioxidant properties.
(2) In the study, researchers checked the blood of 25 men aged 18 - 68 over five weeks.
They found drinking four tablespoons of honey mixed into a 16-ounce glass of water improved the antioxidant levels in their blood.

Different ‘flavors’ and colors of honey depend on the kinds of pollen available to the bees who are making the honey, The darker colors seem to have more of the antioxidant properties than does the lighter kinds.

Honey vs. Sugar
“The best sugars are simple sugars, liberally supplied by nature in honey, fruits and vegetables. They require little digestive effort for assimilation. White sugar depresses the appetite, irritates the stomach, produces heart-burn, acid fermentation, gastric catarrh, indigestion, exhausts the pancreatic activity and thus leads to diabetes…Sugar is just as habit-forming as narcotics. Sugar contains calories which artificially create temporary energy but it is not a food because it is without nutritive value and not only does not benefit the tissues of the organism but harms them.”

HOWEVER we are talking about natural raw honey. Honey produced from bees that are fed natural foods for bees. Pasteurizing reduces severely the healthful properties of the honey and the HFCS fed to bees renders the honey little better than white sugar.

The FDA and Government meddlers have decreed that honey needs to be pasteurized and that it’s just fine to feed these lovely bees High fructose corn syrup, a very dangerous *UNNATURAL* substance.

I cannot say it any better than Russ Bianci did on Dr. Mercola’s site (4)How Honey can help wounds heal better/comments sectionwhen he wrote,” …The fundamental giant problem with the subject of honey production REMAINS that over 70% is derived from force-fed man made refined sugars, weakening hives, creating mite infestations, and from reduced disease resistance, resulting in lowered colonies and hive populations, on a cyclical and charted basis, since this horrid practice was introduced, in the early 1970's.

Yes, GMO and pesticides have also played their part in bee kills, but the majority of the problem has been known and IGNORED all this time; it's the HFCS…!”

GMO? genetically modified origin. Foods that are really non-foods because they have had their genetics messed with by scientists to “improve” something about them, rendering them non-nutritive to the healthy body.

HFCS? High Fructose Corm syrup=a sugar made with altered corn fructose and white sugar that really piles on the pounds, we mentioned that sugar is addictive and fills us up more rapidly giving us empty calories instead of nutrition? Well HFCS is worse, Way worse.

The bees are disappearing and it is postulated that it could be due to increased use of EMF, (electro-magnetic force) as in computers and cell phones, or a fungus/virus introduced by the use of imidacloprid, a pesticide.

American Dietetic Association's recommendation for fiber intake is 25-30 grams per day.

(5)fiber facts
“Government studies show that the typical American eats less than half
of the fiber that they need -- only consuming about 12 to 15 grams of fiber per day. Soluble dietary fiber supports your healthy colon function by keeping food and nutrients moving through your system and by promoting regularity. Fiber also helps to maintain your intestinal lining, which helps your body to process substances properly before reaching your immune system.”

(6)soluble and insoluble fiber
“There are two types of fiber (soluble and insoluble) and both types have health benefits. Soluble fiber holds water. It binds to and helps eliminate cholesterol, boosting heart health. Soluble fiber also normalizes blood glucose and insulin levels, and this can help prevent or manage diabetes. Insoluble fiber, sometimes referred to as roughage, facilitates digestion. Both kinds of fiber fill up the stomach with few calories, helping to control weight. Here are a few foods especially rich in one or the other to start adding into your daily food plan:
• Insoluble: Found in most fruits and vegetables, including raspberries and broccoli; whole-wheat foods, such as bran, bread, bulgur, and pasta; and nuts and seeds; such as walnuts and sunflower seeds.
• Soluble: Good sources include oats and oat bran; legumes, such as chickpeas and pinto beans; and fruits, such as oranges and apples.”

(7)HGTV, At home entertaining/fiber-rich foods
“Good Sources of Fiber
Each of these grains average three to five grams of fiber per serving.
Barley can be cooked much as you would rice.
Whole-wheat flour can replace half of the white flour in most recipes. Muffins made from a traditional recipe but with only half of the white flour replaced with whole-wheat flour is still tasty.
Brown rice has twice the fiber of regular white rice.
Dried fruit
Fiber Content in Various Foods
1 mango=4 grams
1/2 cup blackberries=4.5 grams
1 ear of corn-5 grams
3 figs=10 grams
1/4 cup dried split peas=12 grams
1/4 cup dried chickpeas=14 grams
All dried beans are high in fiber.


I eat as many high fiber (vegetable and fruits) foods as I can; I take Psyllium fiber in addition eating oatmeal in the evenings with honey for its constipation relieving factors (I truly hate oatmeal, it’s a medicine for me, I add cinnamon and nutmeg for taste). I can’t say other diabetics should eat honey, only that I do and it doesn’t/hasn’t effected my blood glucose levels adversely. I don’t eat whole wheat, rice or corn due to the fact that whole wheat has gluten that may not be good for me and corn and rice are nearly all Genetically Modified.

Wearing your team Look at it this way: though all the teen-age kids might wear one size of sweatshirt to school, would people wear the same size suit or skirt to work? If they did, would they look as good or perform well? In other words, one-size-fits-all garments aren't all that versatile for different situations Create a mailing list that tells people when you've written a new article or articles" Ask if they are interested in having a call together
