Honey and Cinnamon

[YEA]  Hi, I used a honey and cinnamon remedy that I heard about from my friend. If you use about a table spoon of raw honey in a cup of warm water (hot will kill the enzymes) and some cinnamon (I don't know exactly how much to use, I just use a couple shakes from the shaker). It speeds up your metabolism, I've lost a little weight, I have yet to weigh myself, but I can already tell, so I suggest trying it.

[WARNING!]  For last one week I am drinking cinnamon powder and honey in water to reduce fat in my body as per your advice. But after starting to do this I have started getting rash on my face and scratching of my eyes skin. Please advise me whether it is because of honey and cinnamon. My skin was always smooth without any rash or pimples.

Your problem w/ the cinnamon & ceylon honey sounds like you might have an allergy to one of the two ingredients.

Regarding your rash to cinnamon - I believe cinnamon is a lot like ginger in that energetically it moves toxins to the skin for removal from the body, vs. the bowels, kidneys, liver etc.

Hi, I became obese after delivery. I tried honey and cinnamon remedy for obesity which was explained by 2 readers. I boiled the water and added honey and cinnamon powder. But after a little cooling water turned into a little sticky fluid (ex: like grease) and was unable to drink. Anyhow i consumed it. But after drinking i felt vomiting sensation and some uneasyness in the stomach. can you please help me by explaining the correct procedure of this remedy. Thanks in advance.

To answer your question about the honey and cinnamon remedy, Hema:

Put the cinnamon and honey together and make a paste. Let that sit for half an hour or so, then add the boiling water and stir. Cover the mixture for another half hour, let it stand; then filter the mixture, and you have your tea. Drink half in the morning, half an hour before breakfast, and half at night, right before bed. Any kind of honey and cinnamon will do. Hope that helps.

Can Cinnamon & honey be mixed night before to set and boiling water be added in the morning before drinking?

You have to filter the cinnamon from the water as best you can. I too felt a little sick after.

[YEA]  I was looking on your site a couple days ago and saw a remedy with honey to help lose weight. I tried it and found that i had more energy during the day, had less of an appetite, and fell asleep faster at night!! i love it! the remedy i found was every morning, a half hour before breakfast, as well as right before bed at night, drink a tablespoon of honey in one cup of boiling water with a teaspoon of cinnamon. It has only been four days, but man, what a difference!!

Posted by T.Srikantharajah (Wimbledon, England) on 12/04/2007

[YEA]  Daily in the morning, 1/2 hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water. If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also drinking of this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Is it true that drinking hot water helps in weight loss? If yes, how many times a day can it be taken?

[YEA]  HOT WATER FOR OBESITY: Boil one glass[200ml.]water. Sip it just like you drink tea after each eating. Rember you should drink it boiled not hot. It control obesitty colostrol and b.p.without any diet control and exercise.

I seem to have an ongoing issue which I thought I would put out there to see if anyone can offer assistance.

I am constantly hungry.

I eat good food (I'm a vegetarian and I eat a lot of nuts and fresh fruit and veg) I try to get protein in every mean and yet still, after eating till I'm full - half an hour later I feel hungry again. I don't give into temptation because I feel that this will just lead to bigger issues but I can't understand why I'm feeling hungry all the time.

Just as a side note : when I feel hungry I try drinking some water with Spirulina but it doesn't really help.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Nicole

Sounds like you may be not getting enough fat in your diet. Try eating more walnuts or more butter on your vegetables. You need the fat... Your gallbladder needs fat to contract. B vitamins also stimulate appetite.
Replied by Caitlin

Sure! Are you eating enough? Perhaps your body is crying out for more nutrients you are not presently giving it in the food you regularly eat. You can try 2 things: 1. Up your fat intake. Try butter or coconut oil. Start with a teaspoon after a meal and see if this does not help. Or, 2. you may need more protein than you are getting. Have you been checked for iron or B deficiencies? If you are eating a lot of beans & grains, you could be stifling your body's ability to absorb certain nutrients in your food. I would get a nutrient/mineral deficiency analysis first. Also, check for worms -- can happen. But, I'm betting you need more good fats and protein in your diet. I was once vegetarian and felt extroardinary for about 6 months; then sheer tiredness consumed me. Ate a piece of meat --! Boing! It was as if a switch had flipped on in my body. An "Aha" moment, for sure. Turns out I had anemia, despite paying close attention to getting enough supposedly high protein from veggies (beans, grains, salads, etc. ) and fruit matter. You can't beat even an occassional meat meal for upping iron and getting those A, C, B-vitamins our bodies need. Remember, meat packs the most nutrients of any food in one package. So once-a-week meat or eggs may be your ticket. Others, I'm sure, will think differantly, but I have found this to be true for me.

Hi again Nicole--I thought it was important to tell you fat slows down/prolongs digestion. If you are eating enough protein and fat this is supposed to prevent the constant hunger. It sounds like something is out of balance. What is your age?
Replied by Kathy

I agree with Caitlin. Would still like to know your age. How long have you been a vegan? Parasites could very well be the problem. Everyone has them but garlic helps getting rid of them. Somewhere here in EC it was posted four cloves a day.

I agree with Joy... I asked your age to know how long you may have been harboring them even though I thought vegans ate garlic and onion for that reason. Check the directories here under "Ailments" and "Remedies" if you haven't already.

Hi Guys, I'm 30 years old and have been a vegetarian since I was 16. I guess I'm unsure of just how much fat I should be consuming - I eat an avocado every other day and a handful (or 2) of almonds after lunch sometimes. I never through about having worms but will definitely get this checked out.

I take a lot of supplements as my initial thoughts when the constant hunger started was that my body was craving nutrients, maybe the suppliments aren't sufficient? (out of general interest I take a mulit, Iron, vit b, magnesium, maca, kelp, Q10 and spirulina at different points throughout the day)

I have just bought some coconut old (because everyone seems to rave about it's benefits) and will start taking this after every mean - Just one teaspoon?

Thanks for all the advise guys, I love this website.

In reviewing this thread... I'm sure I mentioned ACV but in constant editing I must have deleted it. Take some ACV after each meal. The longer you could have been harboring any parasite or tape worm, it may take longer to get rid of it/them. I don't know, but If you have a PCP maybe a good antibiotic would totally eliminate and then you could start over with preventitive care.

Because of what is happening to our food supply, I'd stop the supplements and cook all vegetables until tender so you obtain beneficial assimilation. No long term studies to show whether the binders and/or fillers could be countering the active ingredient. The vitamins/supplements that haven't been made from synthetic material are more than likely manufactured from plants that have been genetically modified and are harder to digest. This can create a double whammy for any ailment because this has been going on for over fifty years. I have to have animal protein but even that is tainted because those critters are being fed the same. I would again like to support what Caitlin suggested.

A friend of mine, many years ago, went to the salad bar with her coworker for lunch.

A week or so later, I can't remember exact. She was rushed to emergency room with systems shutting down, kidney , liver, heart , respiration , and they ran a battery of tests. They didn't find anything but told her plan for her end. I don't remember all the details but the coworker then fell ill with the same problems and they put the two together and it was worms from the salad bar. SHOCKING .

My friend deworms herself regularly now.

I wanted to add taking a probiotic after a course of antibiotics would be important to replace the beneficial flora antibiotics destroy. Is it because I mentioned a PCP and antibiotic? I know this site is for alternative medicine but I believe some things go on too long and people get too desperate to have the time to read books for help. They come here for help NOW and as harmful as antibiotics can be they can still knock out the worst symptoms so someone could feel well enough to start over, eating to repair then advance to preventative care. I apologize for being so piecemeal but that is part of the problem from severe brain injuries. I'll stop posting because I cannot always be thorough.

Parasites can be a problem for everyone and based on what I have been learning, the binders and fillers in supplements can come from plants that have been engineered to last longer. They cannot be as easily digested and I believe this foodstuff remains in the body, nourishes parasites, could begin to ferment and may even become malignant.

I know animal feed is not held to the same standards as our food but the evidence suggests that if food has been genetically modified so it won't spoil, it seems to me that our disease/drought resistant plants could possibly be harboring creatures that are able to survive. In 1967 one of my horses died from moldy corn that turned toxic in his stomach. The mold was not visible. I have often wondered if this is why, when I was eating plain yogurt and more fresh fruit and vegetables, I used to have SO MUCH TROUBLE with candida. My PCP (who I rarely see) advised me several years ago that medicine changes every four or five years. Our food is changing. I hope I have made some sense and shared in an acceptable way. What is happening to our food supply is a threat to all of us.

I read a lot but don't know where I read this maybe Hulda Clark, I bought a cleanse from them but couldn't tolerate 16 clove caps a day... I think I made it to day 8 or 10 and felt sick.... Never did see any parasites... but I gave it a good go.

there was a baby with a cough and they couldn't find the source... Anyway... May have been another country she lived in.... The doc took the tongue stick and light and saw something move back there. He began to roll this worm onto the stick and it rolled and rolled and rolled and turned out to be the length of the child long... YUK. Poor baby.

I do believe that if a person drinks a cup of water half an hour before the meal then the body can DUMP THE ACID into the stomach/intestines to process the food.

Without the water it would be dangerous for the body to dump those acids in there, it would eat a hole in the stomach lining....

Drink 1-2 cups water half hour before meals to have the right amount of acid and water for the stomach and bowels to process the nutrients and the acid should kill parasties on cantact. Love, joy

I do not believe the hydrochloric acid in the stomach kills all parasites. They can bypass the stomach and attach to the walls of the intestines/colon/rectum.

I guess I need to put it another way. Because our "engineered" food cannot be digested properly, the parasites, in whatever stage they are in can be harbored until they get farther down the digestive tract. Alternating garlic and ACV can help get rid of them unless they have proliferated to require antibiotics to kill all stages. Sometimes that is necessary. Probiotics can restore what has been destroyed by the antibiotics. Then eat for prevention.

I am trying to share what I have learned from sources that are not being offered to (and being sheltered from) the medical profession. With all due respect they just do not know what is happening to our food supply. This is why I am "sad".

My communication skills are not good and it is difficult to provide every ounce of support to what I have learned. I have learned a lot of piecemeal information for over twenty years by application and want to provide what I have learned by observation and experience.

In addition, food is not the only way parasites can enter the body.

Babesia is a dreadful parasite that goes into the blood stream and attacks the brain. My friend's sister is a teacher and during the summer some mice got in her class and she was cleaning the room for the fall quarter and got this. She is fighting for her life.... Doctors do not have answers... She has lyme like symptoms, plus more... Body tremors, seizures - grand mal style, has to use a cart, fibromyalgia type muscle pains and weaknesses, tingling, brain memory issues and she has a master's degree in education and is bilingual. Her meds run 5 k a month and she is still ambulanced to the hospital on regular schedule.

VERY SCARY! She didn't eat this, it entered her airway.

[YEA]  I have not seen this posted here on your website and am not sure as to what category this subject would fall into...perhaps both mind/body category and/or for weight loss , but I have now found me a healthy way of losing weight and living right,and it seems to be working for me totally! As of March 27th, 2010, I have lost twelve pounds and, although it has been gradual, I seem to be shedding the fat at a steady pace, and I believe that is the best way to do it. I have always been a somewhat healthy eater with a few (a lot of) temptations here and there, but I think I was just eating too much of all that "healthy" stuff! I now believe I have my eating under control and I owe it all to self - help "Hypnotherepy" (and of course, your website!).
I purchased a self-hypnosis book and audio CD online and it has been worth every penny! There were so many to chose from. I bought a couple before I actually found one that really worked and spoke just to me. Not only do I now have my weight under control, I am more at peace and life is truly worth living every day.I now eat to live instead of living to eat! And...all my sweet cravings went away. I now drink only pure, clean water (nothing else - I don't even want or crave anything else!). No cakes, cookies, candies, white sugars, white breads, etc. All those cravings are NOW completely gone. I don't have the desire for any of that stuff and this therepy has really helped in that respect. it took a couple weeks of listening to the audio CD daily until it kicked in and I finally "Got It" so if you decide to take this approach, give it a couple weeks to sink in.... ...It doesn't just happen in one session...

It is a form of brainwashing but I believe it's a good kind of brainwashing. You definately have to be open to this kind of therepy as well, going into it with a positive mind, knowing that it will be working for you. No negativity whatsoever! You can only get out of it, what you put into it.

My hypnotherepy session begins every morning before I get out of bed with a half hour tape session (using headphones). I do breathing exercises (kinda like yoga) along with it and during the whole session I am repeating positive affirmations. Stuff like... I am in complete control of my eating habits", "I deserve to be fit and healthy"...."My self esteem grows stronger and stronger every day", "I remain a healthy eater forever", "I deserve to be fit and healthy", etc. It also offers some imagery sessions to so you can focus on what you WANT to look like when you accomplish your ideal weight.

I am now strong believer (and a witness), that if you tell yourself positive things every day, you begin to believe them more and more. I think all of us need positive feeback constantly, to remind us how wonderful we really are as human beings, and what our capabilities are.. in order for us to function to our full capacity! I am now filling up my mind, my body and my soul, not to mention my tummy, with healthy words of encouragement, and really believing them... and the weight is coming off... Not only do we have to get rid of the junk food that we have put into our bellies, but we have to get rid of all the junk that has been fed into our minds throughout our lifetime, by beginning to replace it with healthy, positive thoughts. As of today, I am so full of full of life..... .... and so full of.... H20! (Smiling as I take a sip).... Soooooo... Happy dieting. Happy living. I hope you find that which what works for you! Take care. Janie

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tennessee) on 07/13/2008

[YEA]  I agree with most on this site, but why does infrared sauna not get discussed? Sweating from deep in your fat is when you give up your toxins. That is where your toxins are stored and this site gives little credience to this. The reason folks bring back carts at WalMart is that they are so fat that they need assistance to shop. They put their big bellies in the cart and away they go. Obesity is not about over eating, it's about toxins. Once I learned this, the inches began to shuck. Lost a lot of weight but mostly inches. Clean your bowels, clean your liver, clean your lymph.

An infrared sauna is just part of the solution. How 'bout us discussing it?

Robert's comments make sense to me...Walmart, among many other stores now, offer motorized vehicles for their customers who are handicapped in some way - and obesity is the most common handicap I see in the customers that need these little motorized carts. The main point is that toxicity leads to obesity - it is the body's attempt to protect itself from all the toxins by storing them in fat, away from major organs that are already too overloaded with poison.

Posted by Jackie (Grand Rapids, Minnesota) on 10/09/2008

[YEA]  This bread really does fill you up and keep you from snacking. this is the best tasting recipe for it that i've found. 2 cups nonbromated unbleached white flour--1 cup spelt flour--bought both at the healthfoodstore. 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ grocerystore brand in cereal ailse--1 pkg. rapid rise yeast--1-1/2 cups of warm water--1/4 cup brown sugar--1 tsp honey--1 tsp salt--1/4tsp ground ginger-- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon--2 tbsp canola oil--3/4 cup dried fruits, dark or golden raisins, apricots, or pineapple, or a mixture. also 2 handfuls of raw millet from health food store. i measure out all the different flours wheat germ and millet and dried fruits in separate bowls. i measure the brown sugar,honey, salt, cinnamon, ginger and oil together in another bowl. heat 1-1/2 cups water to 110 degrees, i use a a large bowl empty 1 pkg yeast and add the warm water, next the sugar, salt and oil mixture, add 2 cups of the white flour and beat to make a batter then gradually work the rest of the ingredients in, the dried fruits last. knead on lightly floured board 10 min, then let rise in greased bowl in warm place til double. i warm my oven slightly only few minutes and use a greased 4qt covered kettle, it conducts the heat. takes about 1 hr. punch down , divide in half and roll into loaves and place in greased loaf pans.let rise until double ( i use the oven method) remove from oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees. bake about 40 minutes. makes 2 small loaves. i doubled the recipe today, and made 2 large loaves, just realized i used 2 cups of water instead of 3, so that's why it didn't take so much flour, lol when cool, i slice it up and put it in freezer bags and freeze it. since i found this my desire to eat between meals has dropped to zero. my abdominal/ hip girth is going down. i feel so much better. i have more energy and better mental clarity. my mood is better too. i have a slice with each meal and i'm able to reduce portions without pangs and 1 slice around 8 or 9pm with a cup of green tea and then i don't snack at midnight when i get home from work. you must try for yourself, it's a miracle.
