HEALTH-HoneyBy Dr. George I. Traitses

Honey offers a soothing treasure chest of properties for those dealing with minor wounds and illness. It has powerful antibacterial properties, and studies have shown it can destroy almost all strains of bacteria common to minor wounds. Honey also can also help soothe sore lips, relax the mind and nervous system, and promote better sleep, reduced headache symptoms, and digestion. It can even work as a decongestant by reducing mucous formation caused by respiratory disease and its allergy-prevention properties are well-documented.
