Local Honey for Natural Healing

Local raw honey is a great addition to your basket of natural healing remedies.  Many of us have heard about the benefits of using honey for allergies. I have personally used honey for my children’s allergies for over 10 years with amazing success!!  And we are still using honey today for allergies and coughs.  Starting the use of honey before allergy season is best.  Using a tablespoon of honey at night for coughs is extremely helpful based on my personal experiences.  There is some discussion about what age raw local honey can be administered so please check with your physician or do some research before using raw honey on a child younger than 12 years of age.

 

What I didn’t know about raw local honey are all the other health benefits that exist with its use!

 

Honey can aid in the healing of various ailments.  Some of the benefits are:

 

-Reducing Body Fat & Cholesterol

-Lowering Stress

-Inhibiting the Growth of Colon Cancer

-Boosting Brain Health & Memory

-Lessening coughs

-Added energy for Athletes

-Lower Blood Pressure

-Helps with Liver Damage

 

This information was obtained from the Angela Ysseldyk, a Nutritionist & Beekeeper’s Daughter.  Her website is www.bee-pollen-buzz.com.  The list of ailments that can be treated is long and I have not included them all here.  See her website for a more in-depth look at what can be healed and why.  She sells raw honey, bee pollen and other products on her site that are natural and seem very helpful.

 

My fiancée brought home two big beautiful bouquets of flowers for me one night.  Very thoughtful & sweet!!  However, my dog began sneezing, had a runny nose and was almost seizing.  I had no idea what was going on with her and why she was reacting this way suddenly.  I thought it could possibly be allergies and gave her some honey.  The honey helped to relieve her symptoms and when I stopped the honey her symptoms returned.  I still brought her to the vet just to be sure and they went through her symptoms and examined her.  They said she quite possibly was allergic to the flowers and should be given an antihistamine.

 

I had no idea that a dog could be allergic to flowers!!!  The flowers were lilies and my dog was not only allergic, but apparently they could have killed my cat if he had eaten them!! If you have pets, check online, with your florist or vet about the possible effects on your pet before bringing home a new flower/plant, especially with the upcoming holidays.

 

Happy Holidays,

Holiday Stress Got You Down? Try These Natural Alternatives!

Holiday Stress Got You Down?  Try These Natural Alternatives!

Gemstone Therapy: Amethyst

Amethyst is one of the 12 stones of the Bible.  It is a holy stone.  In addition, if you wear it, rub it, have it near you or with you when you sleep, this stone’s properties can help alleviate stress and anxiety.

Food Therapy:

High Intake Amounts of Folate, Tryptophan, Antioxidants, & Magnesium Can Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Examples are as follows:

Folate – Dark leafy greens such as spinach, asparagus, broccoli, citrus fruit, beans, and avocado.

Tryptophan – Chicken, turkey, shrimp, tuna, halibut, salmon, sardines, cod, and scallops.

Antioxidants – Blueberries, dark chocolate, pecans, cranberries, and kidney beans.

Magnesium – Dark leafy greens, nuts, bananas, dark chocolate, seeds, fish, grains, avocados, yogurt, and dried fruit.

These are just a few examples to help you identify some healthy foods to help with stress and anxiety.  Additionally, avoid processed foods and foods that contain high sugar.

Magnetic Therapy:

Magnets are made of rare earth elements such as iron, nickel, cobalt, boron, and neodymium.  It is believed that exposure to these elements decrease pain and improve moods.

The combination of magnets with amethyst can result in maximum relief from stress and anxiety.

WARNING: If you have an implantable medical device such as a pacemaker defibrillator, insulin pump, or liver infusion pump, avoid exposure to magnets as they may affect the way your device functions.  Some practitioners discourage the use of magnetic therapy by people who are pregnant or nursing.

Acupuncture:

Acupuncturists use small needles on acupuncture points in order to relieve stress and anxiety.  Visit a qualified acupuncturist near you to discuss treatment options.

Exercise:

It is hard to find time to exercise during the holidays, but even a brisk 10-20 minute walk can help to produce endorphins.  Doctors recommend 30 minutes of exercise a day.  Producing endorphins will result in stress relief.  Try it out!

Meditation:

Finding time to meditate can be especially difficult to commit to during the holiday season, but to just sit quietly for a few minutes each day can be a stress reliever.  If you are still skeptical, ABC News anchor, Dan Harris, shares his previous skepticism and newfound beliefs regarding his experience with mindful meditation in the article, “What Meditation Did For Me – and Can For You Too.”  Dan addresses a lot of reasons people have for not being able to meditate, such as not having time or not being able to “clear” the mind.  Meditation is not about clearing the mind, but about focusing the mind.  He further explains how practicing meditation can:

-Lower your blood pressure

-Boost your immune system

-Reduce the release of stress hormones, and

-Help with lowering anxiety, depression, ADHD, and age-related cognitive decline

Prayer:

Last but not least, do not forget about the power of prayer – especially during the hectic holiday times.  We should all be grateful for what we have, so take a few minutes to thank God or whatever higher being it is you choose to praise.

* Remember this holiday season, it is not about the things we give and receive…it’s about giving with love to those we love.  Give the gift of health and healing *
