The Honey Prescription

The use of honey as a healing agent is nothing new. It was an ingredient in medicinal compounds and cures made by Egyptian physicians 5,000 years ago, and its medical use has been found in other ancient practices from traditional Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurveda to Mayan shamanism. In the past ten years there has been an explosion in scientific research on honey as medicine at universities, research centres and medical clinics around the world. Presenting the very latest scientific and medical evidence of the healing properties of honey-including that from the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand-Nathaniel Altman explores the broad spectrum of medicinal uses of honey and how these remedies can be used safely at home as well as by licensed health practitioners. He includes an extensive selection of honey-based recipes that can be used to treat common health problems-from burns, conjuctivitis and ulcers to tooth decay, diabetes and cystic fibrosis. He explains the physiological reasons why honey is so effective in treating antibiotic-resistant diseases with no side effects and honey's ability to kill "superbugs" like E. coli and MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Drawing on centuries of material from historical and folk medicine sources, he also examines the sacred role of bees from ancient Egypt onward and the modern problem of Colony Collapse Disorder, including methods for protecting our precious hives. .

"Based on scientific research Nathaniel Altman provides a concise and educational compilation of useful information on using honey for achieving and maintaining optimum health. As well, "The Honey Prescription" includes recipes for remedies for internal and external healing. . . . I encourage you to take responsibility for your own health and maintain it the natural way - the honey way." "Honey has been used for medicine for eons, but it's only in the last 100 years that its antibacterial abilities have come to light--properties explored in Nathan Altman's new book, "The Honey Prescription". . . . some varieties may also help treat gingivitis, yeast infections, and burns." "The increasing interest in wellness should make this a good seller. You might include it in displays about the environment to let customers know it also contains information about the causes and effects of the diminishing honeybee population." ""The Honey Prescription" is an insightful read. I've learned a lot about potential uses for honey in modern medicine, and better still, I also learned a lot about the honey that I buy in the store. This book stimulated my mind, and also my taste buds." "For millennia the honeybee has kept humans healthy by pollinating so many of our fruits and vegetables and by providing two of nature's most sacred healing substances: honey and propolis. After decades of ignorance, doctors are rediscovering the power of these miracle medicines, and Nathaniel Altman is here to spread the good news. The Honey Prescription will amaze you, delight you, and, most important, give you a fantastic new ally to promote natural wellness."
