I had asthma and allergies all my life. We would buy tissues by the case. I sneezed all day long and had to have a box of tissue in every room. The allergies would trigger the asthma and most of the time I had to sleep in a recliner. I wasn't "growing out" of this.
I read an article how a local lady was healed by eating a teaspoon of honey daily from a local beekeeper (within 3 miles is best). She made sure that it had not been heated. Two years later after eating a teaspoon daily, I was totally healed. I don't even buy tissues anymore.
The beekeeper we found didn't heat or filter his honey so there was a little pollen. Some beekeepers heat the honey to make it flow easier. Interesting fact, about a year into this journey the local beekeeper moved away and we couldn't find another one. I was improving, but wasn't totally healed. My sweet hubby drove across town and took beekeeping classes and became a beekeeper for a few years just so I could have local honey. That is LOVE.
I have been healed for 18 years and I no longer wheeze or sneeze. The key for me was LOCAL, non-heated honey and taking a teaspoon full each and every day. Busy Bee
My Husband has had horrible allergies all of his life. About 5 yrs. ago in his mid 30's someone told him about local honey. It worked. I just wanted to let everyone know, that for him it wasn't an overnight thing. He puts about 1 tsp in his coffee every morning. (hot temp did not seem to ruin the honey's effect) It took a few months before he saw any relief. It almost snuck up on him. So, stick with it! It takes a little while for it build up in your system. He recommended this to a friend of his, after only two weeks he gave up and said it didn't help. Don't give up! It will!
I took one tsp. Every day for about 3 months (to finish the one container I bought) in the morning over the winter time and the next spring my allergies that I had my entire life were gone. I didn't have to take meds for 9months out of the year anymore. Just a nasal spray for about 3 weeks in fall, but I just bought more honey that was made from pollen of fall plants. I am hoping this takes care of the last of the allergies. That one container I consumed has worked for the last 3 years. Honey is awesome!!
Local Honey Cures Allergies
I have been taking local honey for years and just recently moved to the great state of Maine and have begun a regimen of local raw honey here.
I use to suffer from allergy problems most severely, I took most sugar out of my diet and replaced it with local honey. Not only am I allergy free, I do not get colds or flu- even as my children were growing up and bringing home all kinds of contagious ailments from school, social activities- folks could be around me dropping like flies from viruses, colds etc.(For many years I worked in an orthodontic office dealing mainly with children with all kinds of germs floating about) I did not succumb because I believe local honey boosted my immune system to the point of immunity from most common ailments. I am 47 years old and have not gone a day without consuming local honey- I cannot recall the last time I became ill with a cold or flu. I believe in this statement most whole heartedly-Local Honey cures allergies. (I do believe it should be local honey consumed and all the better- raw local honey.)Also- raw honey cures many skin ailments, slow healing sores covered with raw honey heal more speedily and have little scarring.
I should mention that I am a sustainable farmer, growing most of the food I eat- I do not have health insurance and have relied on natural aids to healing. I have had lacerations that should have required stitches heal up well before the physicians of today would recommend by using raw honey and epsom salt soakings. I am a firm believer in natural cures- not because of what ifs but because of what is...all that the earth naturally provides can cure most ailments. One last comment- I would not be without Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in my cupboard. It cures almost everything from headaches to sinusitis to dry skin.
Thank you for this wonderful alternative site to RX's that cost an arm and a leg and often provide horrible side effects. To get to the root of any ailment, one should start naturally...
Try using local honey to alleviate allergy symptoms. Look for it at health food stores or your local Farmers' Market. This saved me from terrible eye pain caused by my allergies. From what I understand, using the honey is kind of like having a vaccination. Local honey works for allergy symptoms because it is made using the same plants you are having an allergic reaction to. Include a tablespoon of local honey in a cup of hot tea two or three times a day to begin with. When your symptoms are alleviated, maintain with one dose daily.
I take issue with the requirement for using local honey. My mom found the Dr. Jarvis folk medicine suggestion of taking honey to alleviate sniffles. Works great! To test this, mom & dad brought me honey from Spain. *SAME* wonderful effect. It isn't the local part of the honey that works, it's the *honey* part, irrespective of origin!
Honey has healing properties. Using local honey from where you live should relieve your allergies. I live in a polluted place and recently tried the local farm honey. To my surprise, I have stopped coughing and my sinus has been healed. I can breathe better. In addition, dates and walnuts are a better source of fiber and iron.
It was recently suggested to me that I try the "Honey Therapy" for my severe allergies. Honey therapy being- RAW honey that is made locally with local bees. That being bees that take pollen from the same sources that I am apprently allergic too. I started this and two days later noticed a difference. While getting a SEVERE allergy attack, the same person suggested adding ACV apple cider vinegar to the honey. I mixed 3 oz. acv and 3 oz raw honey. Hard to drink, but then realized adding a bit of spring water helped the taste. I instaly got relief from my allergy symptoms, it lasts aobut 12 hours and then I repeat. Only drinking about 3 oz of the mix at a time. I am going to continue with this therapy and try some of the ACV/Honey/Baking soda mixtures for my acne and see how they work. I will repost to let everybody know how that and the acv/honey taken internally is working. Good luck to everybody. Am now a FIRM believer that God gave us what we need to cure what ailes us.
