Ah honey! It’s a familiar home remedy that generations have relied on to help heal sore throats and the common cold. Word is getting out, however, that raw honey (unprocessed, unheated) combined with organic cinnamon can have significant medicinal and nutritional value. Those benefiting the most from this unique combination are patients suffering from varying degrees of arthritis.
Unlike the data available for over-the-counter and doctor-prescribed medicines, these findings are not based on FDA-mandated scientific studies but instead on actual patient experiences. In a recent study conducted at the Copenhagen University in Denmark, it has been documented that when doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon raw honey and half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found surprising results. Within a week, seventy-three out of the two hundred people treated were totally relieved of pain. Within a month, most all the patients who previously could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.
Besides arthritis, new studies are showing that by incorporating one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder into a daily diet plan boosts the immune system, regulates blood sugar, as well as com- bats other health conditions including influenza, bladder infections, high cholesterol, heart disease, and even cancer. Cinnamon and Honey clean parasites, fungus and bacteria in the digestive tract. The honey helps stabilize your blood sugar so you will feel full and
crave food less.
What’s even more exciting? A little bit of honey and cinnamon has also been known to slow down the aging process and increase longevity. Now that’s sweet!
