Honey is a treat, and is man's oldest sweetener. It is an excellent substitute for sugar in our drinks and food. It is also good for many medicinal uses and treating certain conditions. Reliance on commercialized medicines which contain too many chemicals can become hazardous to our health.
1-It contains; glucose and fructose and minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate, vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Besides the above, copper, iodine, and zinc as well as Several kinds of hormones.
2-If you have seasonal allergies local honey can be helpful. Bees gather local pollens and after it's made into honey it creates a resistance to pollen-generated allergies.
3-honey has the ability to attract moisture so it's great for skin and added to olive oil for hair too.
4-For a sore throat honey has antimicrobial properties and if you add lemon juice to it it's quite soothing and healing.
5-For wounds it kill viruses, bacteria, and fungus making it a good wound dressing. Many types of bacteria can’t survive in honey, so wounds heal, swelling eases, and tissue can grow back.
6-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
7-It also works great applied liberally on burns-Many types of bacteria can’t survive in honey, so wounds heal, swelling eases, and tissue can grow back.
8- A teaspoon of honey will aid the digestion also allowing a sluggish bowel to expel it's contents.
9- It has a marvelous antioxidant that liberates and flushes free radicals.
10-Raw honey in green tea causes a significantly lower rise in blood sugar levels than other sugars.
But it has to be raw honey, pasteurizing it absolutely ruins it and it becomes just another sugar, ready willing and able to raise your blood sugar levels and little else. Like overheating other foods it renders it another non-food item just something that's a moment on the lips and a lifetime on the hips.
Pasteurized foods like honey and milk are not just not healthy, they are now unhealthy, not recognized in the body as food, and whatever isn't food is rejected as a poison taxing our immune system. Yes it goes into the digestive system like normal, but the other organs that depend upon the proper nutrients, like the bone marrow that makes healthy blood, the liver that filters impurities, the pancreas that manufactures insulin, the spleen that creates an atmosphere of healing, the colon and kidneys that rid the body of wastes are not given the basic building blocks necessary for continued health, so somewhere down the line illness happens and pharmaceuticals are ingested to cover[or mask]the manifestation of that illness.
Those pharmaceuticals are also unhealthy because the very definition of a drug is that it causes a reaction [side effects]. Pretty soon the patient not only has a disease but also chemicals that are not recognized by the body as nutrients fouling up the delicate balances of the various systems. Then because one drug causes an adverse reaction, like GERD or stomach aches another drug is prescribed [that will inevitably CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS]. The human body has amazing recuperative properties and will heal itself.
Yes, we have, at least in the Industrialized nations, pretty much eradicated diseases like typhoid, Cholera, Chicken pox, measles, mumps and small pox, but we now have an epidemic of Type 2 diabetes-even in young children! Also on the rise are Lupus, MS, HIV AIDS, AUTISM and I could go on and on. Some Cancers for instance that were rare or non-existent 50 years ago are rampant. Now, many extremely rare diseases of yesterday are listed as 1 in 166 or even 1 in 4 as to the numbers of people contracting them and even dying of them. It's not all due to alcohol and cigarettes, my friends, our sedentary lifestyles, our increasing drug use- illegal and/or sanctioned [what's the diff to our bodies], our unhealthy foods and poor diet choices are taking their toll. Most people nowadays can look forward to maybe 70 years of life but the last 15 or so many, if not most, will suffer in ill health for that time.

Proper Narrative Descriptions
It has come to our attention from several Police and Fire Dept reports, that narratives have taken a decidedly creative direction lately. Effective
immediately, all members are to refrain from using slang and abbreviations to describe victims, patients and/or suspects as the following:
1. Cardiac patients should not be referred to with MUH (messed up heart), PBS (pretty bad shape), PCL (Pre-code looking) or HIBGIA (had it before, got it again).
2. Stroke patients are NOT "Charlie Carrots." Nor are rescuers to use CCFCCP (Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs) to describe their mental state.
3. Trauma patients are not CATS (cut all to shreds), FDGB ( fall down, go boom), TBC (total body crunch) or "hamburger helper." Similarly, descriptions of a car crash do not have to include phrases like "negative vehicle to vehicle interface" or "terminal deceleration syndrome."
4. HAZMAT teams are highly trained professionals, not "glow worms."
5. Persons with altered mental states as a result of drug use are not considered "pharmaceutically gifted."
6. Gunshot wounds to the head are not "trans-occipital implants."
7. The homeless are not "urban outdoors people" or "residentially challenged" nor is endotracheal intubation referred to as a "PVC challenge."
8. And finally, do not refer to recently deceased persons as being "paws up," ART (assuming room temperatures), DRT (dead right there), CC (cancel Christmas), CTD (circling the drain), or NLPR (no longer playing records).
I know you will join me in respecting the cultural diversity of our community, to include their medical orientations in creating proper narratives and log entries.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
From the Manitoba Herald, Canada (a very underground paper):
The flood of American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration.
The actions of President Bush are prompting the exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, and agree with Bill O'Reilly.
Canadian border farmers say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, animal-rights activists and Unitarians crossing their fields at night.
"I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn," said Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. The producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken.
"When I said I didn't have any, he left. Didn't even get a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?"
In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. So he tried installing speakers,that blare Rush Limbaugh across the fields. "Not real effective," he said. "The liberals still got through, and Rush annoyed the cows so much they wouldn't give milk."
Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into Volvo station wagons, drive them across the border and leave them to fend for themselves.
"A lot of these people are not prepared for rugged conditions," an Ontario border patrolman said. "I found one carload without a drop of drinking water. "They did have a nice little Napa Valley cabernet, though."
When liberals are caught, they're sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear retribution from conservatives. Rumors have been circulating about the Bush administration establishing re-education camps in which liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer and watch NASCAR races.
In recent days, liberals have turned to sometimes-ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have taken to posing as senior citizens on bus trips to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half-dozen young vegans disguised in powdered wigs, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior-citizen passengers on Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney hits to prove they were alive in the '50s.
"If they can't identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we get suspicious about their age," an official said. Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage and renting all the good Susan Sarandon movies.
"I feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can't support them," an Ottawa resident said . "How many art-history majors or sociology professors does one country need?"
Jim and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled Jim out.
When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act, she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, "Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged; since you were able to rationally respond to a Crisis by jumping in and saving the life of another patient, I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness.
The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead."
Edna replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?"
