The unfortunate side of that is that once the corporate people get their hands on it. It will be probably one of the most expensive drugs on the market. It's sad that something that helpful wold be exploited but it more assuredly will.

Nice Post though S&F

She said a compound in the honey called methylglyoxal -- toxic on its own -- combined in unknown ways with other unidentified compounds in the honey to cause "multi-system failure" in the bacteria.

The results of the research project are published in this month's European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.

Sure beats colloidal silver, doesn't it?

NOTE I AM NOT A DOCTOR OR PHARMASYST
please consult a doctor for medical treatment,

in my country new zealand there is a plant called manuka,
the bees use the flower to collect pollen to make honey,
this type of honey has been used in trails by our govenmnet and it has been shown to fight bacterial infections and inflimation.

the fact that it works so well has caused local retailers to export vast amounts overseas pushing up the price to locals

if you wish to eat the honey its tast is similar to caramel or malt,
look for the activate symbol on the label and only buy 100% manuka as blends are inferior

if you wish to use the honey for any other reason consult your doctor prior to use

in some cases of bacterial skin infection and some fleash eating bacteria,
the honey was used as a last resort to stop the spread of infection

please consult a doctor if you buy the honey for any other reason than consumption

Wow, I do love honey, although it's gotta bee(pun!) pretty hard to find manuka up here in WA. I think honey and almond butter on gluten free bread is one of the best snacks a person can have.

This article was originally from 2009, have you found anything more recent, I would love to hear if there's been any further research into manuka honey or if this has been totally refuted.

Nice find.

It has been long known that honey has a great medicinal value.

The one in Op is just further proof.


More info on subject here.

Honey has proved to be such a useful medicine in my practice that I wanted to provide you with a copy of these very comprehensive articles by Dr. Molan. Honey was also widely used in traditional medical systems as a food, wound dressing, and preservative for herbal medicines.


Show me the honey

I'm curious then to the negative possibility of eating manuka honey......

Its seems to be unstoppable at killing bacteria....this can be a bad thing as the body contains many types of bacteria that are actually beneficial to good health. I'd recommend eating a lot of yogurt shortly after eating manuka honey.

if you wish to get the most from your honey look for a dark colour and look for a product packaged in new zealand,
look for the "active A.A.H" logo
we use the brand "airborne manuka"

eating the honey is not bad for good gut bacteria and will taste very nice on toast
be aware that heat and light will degrade the quality and it should be stored away from light in a cool place

we have known about this honey for many years and have used it for many reasons

we here only have two semi dangerious spiders and one of those came from australia,

sometimes a bite will cause cell death in the area around the bite and the skin starts to "rot"

in these cases some hospitals will use the honey topically to reduce swelling and curb infection.

if you intend to use the honey in any way please consult your doctor prior to use

Sorry this isn't a discovery, humans have been using this stuff for a while and I don't just mean the indigenous people, I mean this stuff has been available in the US for some time now.

That's actually a common misconception and a minor pet peeve of mine. Honey bees are disappearing , not all bees are. In fact so called "killer" vbees are completely immune to the disorder taking out honeybees.


groups.yahoo.com...





And the man who takes the bees out of Bisbee, Reed "The Killer Bee Guy" Booth, says he's not surprised Africanized bees are thriving. Booth started out with beekeeping to make retail honey and honey mustard, and branched out to do bee removals after the Africanized bees invaded Arizona in the early 1990s. He says he gets one to five eradication calls a day from around Cochise County during warm weather. "It's going to be a banner year for bees," he says. "The Africanized bees are somewhat more resistant" than the European honeybees, he says of the aggressive, slightly smaller wild bees that produce bumper crops of honey and bad press. "But they're somewhat resistant to anything, probably including nuclear war." Booth says he switched from European bees to wild Africanized bees not long after they spread through Arizona. "I used to have two sets of hives," says Booth. "But I got tired of going down and either finding my European bees Africanized or dead. I gave up, so, Killer Bee Honey."

Honey is amazing. Not only is it a perfect sweetener, it's been used in medicines for thousands of years. Way to go, bees!

I've read that ancient man used honey to dress wounds. It's antibacterial properties, combined with its stickiness, made for a perfect dressing. That is so cool.

Good thinking there, but not much to worry about. Honey's antibacterial effects are due to a certain antibacterial protein called defensin, Hydrogen peroxide, its osmolarity (high sugar to water ratio), and its pH level. All of these things are changed while in the stomach during digestion so the honey would hardly do any damage to normal gut bacteria.

The curative properties of various types of honey have been known to indigenous cultures for thousands of years, and dressing wounds with honey was common before the advent of antibiotics.


So, scientists have "discovered" something that people have known for thousands of years. Any honey has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. The Romans knew about it. They used it as a preservative because it never spoils. They might not have known why, but it doesn't spoil because no bacteria, virus or fungus can live in it.

Sounds like hype to bolster a sagging honey market. This honey isn't special. Go to your local grocery store and pick up a jar of natural honey. It's the same thing.

For anyone who has acne, spread manuka honey over your face like a mask. It will munch all the excess bacteria that encourages acne. Pretty good for the skin to be honest.
