Health and Honey

Honey has a long history of being used to treat an array of medical issues. Studies are continuously being done on the possible benefits of honey. Honey was used by the Greeks, the Romans and Egyptians up to modern civilizations and even during WWII for a topical antibacterial.

Many allergists will refer patients to use local honey to relieve them from their local pollen allergies. Honey contains pollen from the flowers in which the nectar was collected from and may have the ability to help acclimate a person to those pollens, like allergy shots will build up immunities to allergens. The success rate will vary depending on what pollen the honey contains. Fall honey will not have apple blossom pollen just as spring honey will not have golden rod. They honey really needs to be local and contain the pollens the person is allergic to. Honey can't help indoor allergies such as pet dander.

The recommended dose for allergy treatment with honey is a Tablespoon of local honey a day.
