tips for healthy living, using honey every day will give you more energy, cure colds and the upper airways infections

Honey is excellent for a cold

Although modern medicine evolves at a high pace, a person often reaches for the things that were discovered thousands of years before – herbs or other gifts of nature which help us keep good health and great condition. One of the most effective natural antibiotics is honey and its different derivatives like propolis, bee pollen and bee glue. There are many creams, tablets and syrups made based on honey. Honey still has an unbelievable power. Different honey types help with different, often serious, conditions and illnesses. This article is dedicated, most of all, to all the upper airways illnesses. Women' health magazine advises.

Which honey for which illness?

Acacia honey is a very useful medicine against colds and problems with the digestive system. Subtle, delicate and very sweet, it is loved by children. Giving your child 1-3 teaspoons daily will improve their immune system, protecting them from colds and feeling unwell. Acacia honey helps with cough, problems, sleeping and dyspnea.

Buckwheat honey, spicier than acacia honey, with a very distinct smell and taste, is used in the upper airways illnesses, high temperature, pneumonia and also neurosis or during the recovery after a fracture. Buckwheat honey contains a lot of very easily absorbed nutrients such as magnesium, iron and vitamin C.

Lime honey works very well on colds or bronchitis. Thanks to enzymes in this honey it is easier to cough up phlegm and get rid of throat infections faster. Lime honey warms you up, therefore it helps to get rid of toxins and allows to sweat it out.

Honeydew honey is one of the most noble types of honey, which is created from honeydew – the flower dew, a sweet substance that collects on the ends of the needles of conifers. Honeydew honey is used for colds and pneumonia.  

One of the most popular honeys - the polyfloral honey, greatly helps in the case of colds and different allergies.  This honey is made from different types of flowers therefore it can have a different taste, colour and aroma. Its properties can also slightly differ. Polyfloral honey collected in the spring is a great supplement to take to build up a good immune system and feel energised. Honey made from summer and autumn flowers will on the other hand have great antibacterial and antiseptic qualities.

How to dose the honey for it to be useful?

Honey can be taken on its own. It is good to take 1-3 teaspoons 3 times daily. It can also be added to lukewarm, previously boiled water with some lemon juice and drink a glass of this mixture once a day during autumn and winter.

Honey is very sensitive to high temperatures in which it will lose a great part of its beneficial properties. The safe borderline temperature for honey dissolved in water is 40◦C.
