healing effects

Many conditions that compromise our health are caused by the presence of infectious bacteria. Honey has begun to enjoy something of a renaissance as a therapeutic treatment for many internal and external ailments.

Honey is used as a natural product both internally and on the skin. The unique properties of honey can help healing in a wide range of conditions, as well as increasing your energy levels and general well-being.

Natural Australian honeys are a high-calorie food which is easily digested and highly effective in restoring energy. Honeys have a bactericidal, immuno-biological, stimulating effect, and facilitate the excretion of toxins from the body. They are helpful for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, the nervous and cardiovascular systems.

Australian Eucalyptus honey is made up of over four hundred vital antitoxic elements, which are active in the fight against infections of the upper air passages, and effective against catarrhal conditions, bronchial asthma and sore throat.

Because it is a powerful restorer of energy, Australian eucalyptus honey helps with fatigue and feebleness, makes the mind clear, raises stamina, normalizes body activity and metabolism, restores our capacity for work and improves memory.

Honey is composed many of natural sugars which are absorbed and used by the body. There are also a number of other minerals, vitamins, enzymes, moisture which give the honey its physical properties.

Honey has a mild antibacterial quality – soothing for burns or as an antiseptic for cuts.

All honey has some level of the antibacterial chemical hydrogen peroxide, which is produced by enzymes in the honey. These enzymes are easily destroyed by exposure to heat, light and fluids. Some rare honeys have an antibacterial action that is separate to the peroxide effect, resulting in a much more persistent and stable antibacterial action. These honeys do not lose their antibacterial activity when used in wound treatment and even have strong activity when heavily diluted by body fluids in a wound dressing.

Australia has some of the most active honeys in the world, Research has confirmed the healing power of some Australian forest honey. The findings show that honey from some species, has naturally high anti-bacterial properties, which could help cure particularly difficult infections like Golden Staph. Golden Staff is an antibiotic resistant infection, and some honey could be helpful in controlling Golden Staph. We believe that some Australian Honeys stronger than Manuka, the world famous New Zealand honey recognised for its healing properties.

Some ‘active’ Manuka honey from New Zealand has been found to have particular health-giving properties, specifically an anti-microbial property not shared by other honeys and it has been used for healing, internally and on the skin. Manuka honey is effective against gram-positive bacteria and yeast fungus candida, and is used for the treatment and prevention of gastrointestinal diseases.

History of Honey

The oldest written reference to honey dates back to the Egyptians in 5,500 B.C.E., and references to honey abound in antiquity. China has a very venerable history of beekeeping and is currently the world's largest producer of honey. Records indicate that the Chinese practised beekeeping over three thousand years ago.

Ancient healers attributed many health-giving properties to honey. Honey heads the list of medicines described in the Book of Chinese Medicine written 2,200 years ago. Even today, most honey produced in China goes towards the production of naturopathic remedies, in which honey is mixed with medicinal herbs. The ancients believed honey was ‘an elixir of youth’. The famous ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates and the renowned mathematician Pythagoras, who lived till he was 90, both claimed that honey combined healing and preventive properties.

Honey was an ancient luxury food but, throughout history, it has also played an important role as a traditional wound dressing used by many cultures, including the Maoris of New Zealand. The ancient Egyptians and Greeks used honey in medical compositions and for skin care as well in mummification process.

Until cane sugar, which originated in southeast Asia, became commercially available and affordable in the mid-19th century, honey was the major sweetening agent for Europeans. It sweetened tea, cakes and sweets.

The medicinal and healing qualities of honey are now being reconsidered by the modern world, in light of new research into the properties and uses of bee-produced substances.
