1. Heart problems
Did you know that honey can help cure a number of heart ailments and problems? In fact honey is the best way in which you can prevent heart problems, especially when you eat it regularly every day.
Here is something about which researchers would want to do some research. I heard from a person who had suffered from a heart attack that he was cured by honey. It seemed his wife, who believed in the powers of nature instead of going to a doctor fed him 2 tablespoons of pure honey about 2 to 3 times a day and with every liquid – juice and milk – he drank. I have a logical and provable explanation behind this. Honey made sure that the glycogen content present in the blood was never reduced. That means that there was no chance of him having another attack.
I have found that 2 tablespoons of honey stops any heart palpitations brought about by tension, excitement, weakness or even the heat. Again, another logical, scientific explanation is already there – you get an instant dose of sugar in your body. One spoonful of sugar has hundred calories, so you are going to get direct energy boosting as well as heat. So try honey for preventing heart problems, as well as for curing any incipient heart conditions.
2. Lung problems
TB is one of the most dangerous conditions which can affect your lungs. TB patient put into isolation. In the same manner, other serious lung problems are pneumonia and double pneumonia.
You can strengthen your lungs and prevent these diseases from happening by eating honey every day. Your daily intake should be about 25 g of pure honey. Start with one spoon of honey at breakfast and make it a regular part of your routine. Then throughout the day, lick a spoonful of honey three or four times. If honey does not cause constipation, you can increase the amount of its intake by putting it into your food and drink.
Get your body and lungs checked at least twice a year during a complete checkup.
This is more advisable in areas where you are subjected to cold. Do not eat 5 teaspoons of honey all at once. This has to be eaten at intervals of at least 4 to 5 hours.
People suffering from pneumonia may stop eating food, so that is why they have to be fed one spoonful of honey three – five times a day so that they have essential calories to ward off the infection. Start treating the patient with honey right from the beginning of his illness. Give warmth to the patient by feeding him a mixture of 10 g each of honey and ginger juice in which you have added five leaves of the sacred basil. Repeat this twice a day. Also, keep feeding him 2 teaspoons of honey in warm water whenever he feels discomfort or problems in breathing. The sacred basil (Tulasi) is a natural expectorant, which has been in use for millenniums, especially in throat and lung diseases. Abstain from feeding the patient foods which are hard to digest. But then, most of the patients are on almost no diet when they are undergoing a pneumonia treatment. This is because this disease leaves them weak and helpless.
People suffering from diabetes are not recommended to eat or drink any sugar. Nevertheless, you can control your diabetes with honey, even though it does not cure it completely. Drink the following mixture with your morning tea which is going to be sugar free.
5 g [not more than that] of honey – that makes it a teaspoon. A tablespoon is 14 g. – in a teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of gooseberry juice. This has to be given to the patient without fail every morning. Gooseberry is called Emblica officianalis or Amla and it is sour to eat. But gooseberry juice is considered to be one of the best healthy curative natural products brought to us by Mother Nature.
A stroke can happen to anyone, and this is capable of paralyzing either the left side of the right side of the body. That means your nervous system and your muscles have been affected. Patients cannot feel anything in that affected area, neither pain nor can they move it.
You can prevent a stroke from occurring by giving a prospective patient honey. And if you know somebody who is suffering from a stroke, get him to eat 25 to 30 g honey every day. He can also drink milk with honey. Add a pinch of cinnamon and dried ginger powder to the milk. This is going to produce heat in the body as well as increase the amount of calcium required to get the muscles and nerves moving and healing.
Also, when you find the condition of the patient improving, start giving him 25 g of honey in a cup of hot water. [Not boiling, not warm but just bearable.] You are going to see significant results. It is going to take some time for the muscles to heal and regenerate, but patience is going to benefit your patient.
There was a time when thousands of people fell prey to the cholera every year, especially in tropical regions, where the rain brought on infections. How many British, Spanish and Portuguese soldiers died of cholera when posted to the outposts of their Imperial Empires, starting from the 16th century because they were too proud to ask the natives the best remedy to cure this potentially fatal disease? Cholera is accompanied with nausea and diarrhea. The dehydrated patient would die because people did not know about the harmful effects of dehydration at that time.
But in India, the moment one fell prey to cholera, he was given 1 tablespoon of honey with half a tablespoon of raw onion juice. This was fed to him at intervals of 30 minutes throughout the day. This controlled the diarrhea and the nausea. Also, the patient was fed water mixed with honey and salt throughout the day and as often as possible. This is the reason why cholera affected European traders and soldiers who did not know how the natives survived the epidemic and got cured within three days.
7. Kidney stones
This is a remedy for kidney stones, passed on through ancient times. It seems that kidney stones are going to get dissolved with a one-week treatment program. For the first two days, you have to eat one tablespoon honey twice a day. – 14 g X 2 = 26 g. After two days, you are going to increase the amount of honey slightly by eating 1 ½ tablespoon twice a day on the third day. On the fourth and fifth day you are going to eat 2 tablespoons [26 g of honey] four times a day. This is considered to be a time-honored way in which you can get rid of kidney stones.
There was a time when TB was considered to be one of the most lethal of all human ailments. This affected the lungs and destroyed them. The symptoms of chronic cough, fever, sweating in the night, and even loss of weight, made people call it “consumption” in olden days. Start this treatment immediately as soon as you see the victim start coughing persistently and then he suffered from intermittent fever.
TB patients are normally put in isolation wards in quarantine with attendants taking full precautions to safeguard against infection. This is a remedy, which was told to me by an ancient, because at that time they did not have medical facilities. According to him, this is the way TB was cured in his village since ancient times. Even though it was a long-term process, the patient’s condition did not deteriorate any further. As I said, these cures have been in use since ancient times, but nowadays we are so programmed to go in for drug based medical remedies which may or may not help cure us. Nevertheless, for all those people who believe in natural cures, like the ancients, this is the remedy. Take 25 g honey [2 tablespoons], and 25 g of pure butter, and feed this to the patient, with every meal on a roti. [Unleavened wheat bread.]
Rotis are also called chapatis and used as the bread to be eaten with gravy, curry or dals. These rotis are the staple diet of people in the Northern parts of the Indian subcontinent. You spread desi ghee on them to make them tastier. Oldsters are given these hot chapaties with one spoonful of desi ghee and honey and crumpled (churi) to make them easily chewable, digestible and to promote good health and longevity. This is going to give him strength and energy, as well as built-up is the autoimmune system. This has to be given to him every day. It seems that one can see a difference in the patient within 20 – 25 days. He also said that a majority of the TB patients were cured in this manner, and eating 2 teaspoons of honey every day, would cure him completely and prevent this infection from occurring. Also, he said the only people who were not cured were those people who had already entered the last stages of spitting blood. That was because their lungs had been destroyed and the infection had spread. This regrowth of lungs is unfortunately not a reversible process. However, this remedy has been taken from ancient books telling about the ways to cure TB.
Typhoid is a potentially lethal sickness. As one spoonful of honey has hundred calories energy, it is going to give instant energy to the patient. It is also easy to digest. Give the patient 1 teaspoon of honey twice a day for five days. For the next four days, give him 1 teaspoon three times a day. This is enough to cure him of typhoid in just 10 days.
Jaundice is normally caused when the RBC in the blood count falls and that is why the whole body starts looking yellow. This is a liver problem, and it can be remedied with increasing the intake of copper and iron in your food. This is present in honey. For the first two days, give the patient 1 tablespoon of honey twice a day. For the next four days give him half a tablespoon of honey with a little powdered gooseberry – Emblica-three times a day. This gooseberry is one of the most powerful of natural curing fruit out there. The third part of the treatment includes giving the patient half a teaspoonful of honey in a little purified iron powder, [a pinch] three times a day for the next four days.
Flu, also known as influenza is one of the most tiresome side effects of winter. Not only do you feel feverish, but you do not want to eat anything. You are also going to be suffering from cough and cold. Did you know it was very easy to treat flu with honey? Wonder why I did not do that when I came down with flu every winter, thanks to it being a contagious disease and thanks to people with flu not keeping to themselves and come into the office, coughing and sniffing away to glory. Take 2 tablespoons of honey in half a glass of water. Now put a pinch of salt and turmeric into this, stir and make the patient gulp it down. In the same way, I saw a relative treating flu in the family with glasses of milk with honey and a pinch of Sodium bicarbonate – baking powder –. This also worked wonders in treating the flu properly. Both of these remedies are going to make the patient sweat a lot. This is good. The honey in the milk or water is going to provide instant energy to the body. Try just one remedy at a time and just once a day, and you can throw off all vestiges of the flu within 3 to 4 days. She proved it! The next time you come down with flu, you can try the other remedy to see which is more efficacious!
I did not know that honey was used to cure anemia. That is because honey has phosphorus, iron, manganese, potassium, sulfur, and calcium. These are required for the healthy growth of red blood corpuscles in your body. These minerals are going to help in the production of healthy bone marrow. The best way to prevent and to cure anemia is to eat one teaspoonful of honey every day with some drops of fresh lemon juice. You can also drink it in one glass of water. You can increase the honey intake during the winter by taking 2 to 3 spoons during the day. In the same way, you can put it in warm milk or in fresh fruit juice. This regular intake of honey is not only going to increase the RBC count in your body, but also it is going to revitalize your whole circulatory system.
Piles is normally a side effect of constipation and many people who eat lots of meat, spicy, fatty and rich foods may find themselves suffering from this problem. Eat 1 tablespoon of honey two times a day to cure piles.
The easiest remedy to cure insomnia is to drink 2 teaspoons of honey in warm milk at night. Then sleep like a baby. In the afternoon, add a couple of drops of lemon juice to a tablespoon of honey and eat it. This is going to tone up your system and make it easy for you to drop off to sleep at night.
15. High blood Pressure
Do you know that one out of three Americans are suffering from high blood pressure? 68 million people all over the world are suffering from high blood pressure today, thanks to the stressful life that they go through, day after day. So it does not matter whether you are suffering from low blood pressure or high blood pressure – honey is going to save the day.
Bad eating habits and obesity are conducive to high blood pressure and possible heart problems. For those suffering from high blood pressure, all you have to do is eat six almonds with one spoonful of honey in the morning. Soak the almonds in water overnight. If you can manage half a cup of raw ash gourd juice with this, so much the better. Take this regularly every day, and you are soon going to write your high blood pressure off.
Ash Gourd vegetable (also known as winter melon or white pumpkin).
That does not mean that I do not have a remedy for you, if you are suffering from low blood pressure. Take 1 teaspoon of honey with 15 g – 1 tablespoon of Tulsi leaves juice. Tulasi is also known as Sacred Basil – Oscimum sanctum. It is a magical herb with amazing expectorant qualities. In India, and other parts of Asia its leaves are regularly used in tea in winter to prevent cough, cold and chest/Winter related diseases. Low blood pressure is aggravated with tension, worry, stress and shock. In the same manner, high blood pressure is also aggravated with tension. So if you are suffering from any sort of blood pressure, avoid any such activities or discussions which are conducive to prospective tension situations.
