I did this honey stuff on my wound, when I had a leg ular for three years

Автор El Inextricable ( назад)
When I was 15, I had a classmate that everyone called "piranha"... Why?.. well... the poor guy had this problem: all of his teeth was rotten. All of them. One day, I dont remember the context, I got enought courage to approach him and ask "What happend with your teeth, dude?" He put this face like if he heard the question a million times before (of course), and to my surprise he answer me pretty much kindly.
The answer gave me the goosebumps tho: "When was kid, I fell asleep with the mouth full of honey".
I rarely eat honey since then.

Does it effect the microbes in our body? Gut flora

Автор NinjaOnANinja ( назад)
This is why Organic foods need to lead the way. The companies remove all the good stuff and then sell it as other products. Then they sell you the scraps of what is left as the product.
When you buy the real deal, you get all the healthy stuff with it.

The same is true for gas and medications and you name it really. Greed and corruption is calling the shots and running the show.

I use Manuka Honey on spots on my face, acne or scars and its amazing.. in a week i lost a significant amount of scars on my face i thought would be there forever! Spread the word on Manuka Honey it works miracles

Автор Shubham Keshri ( назад)

Автор Binoy Vudi ( назад)
Eating a spoon of Honey every morning and evening after quitting smoking, can cleanse smokers lungs !! (and no, this isn't some crazy pseudo scientific claim)

Автор TheJamesRedwood ( назад)
It's a pity the honey doesn't protect bee larvae from either American or European Foulbrood diseases - both bacterial, or Nosemosis, or Chalkbrood - both fungal diseases. These diseases are the bane of apiarists world-wide.

Автор James Love ( назад)
So that explains why Manuka honey cured my acid reflux / GERD. I wonder why pharmacies don't carry it or doctors prescribe it. Oh yeah $$$

Автор Joakim Innvær ( назад)
Um, actually, the honey in those bear bottles you are talking about probably wouldn't be honey at all if you live in America. It would just be loads of sirup and flavor, kurtzgesagt made a video about it.

Question: does otherwise beneficial honey have an adverse effect on the beneficial gut culture?

Автор Mitchell Johnson ( назад)
Does it mess up your gut bacteria?

Автор Cracker Gamer ( назад)

And if you make the honey into Mead you double the antibiotics.....I know that's true! Because, when i get a cold i drink mead everyday...2-3 days later the cold is GONE

Автор BarbikaPahor ( назад)

soooo if honey is applied for external uses for example applying it on the skin which believed that the honey act as moisturizer, im wondering will the honey suck the water from our skin because of its properties or provides water?

Автор mrhypnagogia ( назад)
can i apply bee honey to a bad injury supposing there is no risk of hemorrage?

Автор Li ( назад)
I always have honey in my tea, or just a spoon of it when I'm craving something sweet. Had no clue it could kill bacteria, so cool!

Автор the0master200 ( назад)
honey should never ever crystallize like that if it is really made by bees.

Автор Kenneth Manuel ( назад)
so next time if infection occurred, don't drink antibiotics, simply just putting honey on the wound would kill the bacteria and removes the puss

Автор Jayme Zayac ( назад)
I thought you couldn't give honey to a baby because of the low stomach acid in their stomach. our immune system can't fight off endospore formers because the endospore literally encases it's plasma membrane so it goes undetected by our immune system. our stomach acid kills the endospores

Автор zoji rushi ( назад)
So like, why do girls smother honey on their faces if it dehydrates?

Your Lord revealed to the bees: "Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which men erect. Then eat from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord, which have been made easy for you to follow." From inside them comes a drink of varying colours, containing healing for mankind . There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. (Qur'an, 16:69)

That's basically how I treat everything ("common cold", mainly, if I'm honest): a bit of honey, and aspirin if needed. And wait it out.
No need to make becterias stronger using unneeded antibiotics doctors give you because they're paid to do so. :)

But in another programme on SciShow(That on toxins) it is stated that deadly botulism can hide away in honey and that it shouldn't be given to infants because of the anaerobic atmosphere which botulism loves.

Toxic sugar. Most people don't need anymore of that. Feeding pathogenic organisms in your colon and contributing to insulin resistance. This guy always gives the worst advise about nutrition. hi
