This information is phenomenal and it really works. I was telling someone that my psoriasis went away after treating it with honey and cinnamon.

It is found that a mixture of Honey and Cinnamon cures most of the diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Ayurvedic as well as Yunani medicine have been using honey as a vital medicine for centuries. Scientists of today also accept honey as a very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases. Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, on its issue dated 17 January, 1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by Honey and Cinnamon as researched by western scientists.

    HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, chappati, or other bread, instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also those who already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack.

Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heartbeat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as age the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalizes the arteries and veins.

INSECT BITES: Take one part honey to two parts of lukewarm water and add a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder, make a paste and massage it on the itching part of the body slowly. It is noticed that the pain recedes within a minute or two.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of ho****er with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured.

In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week out of the 200 people so treated practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

HAIR LOSS: Those suffering from hair loss or baldness, may apply a paste of hot olive oil, one tablespoon of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath and keep it for approx. 15 min. and then wash the hair. It was found to be effective even if kept on for 5 minutes.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

TOOTHACHE: Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth. This may be applied 3 times a day till the tooth stops aching.

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder
mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to
reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken 3 times a day, any Chronic cholesterol is cured. As per information received in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses.

INFERTILITY: Yunani and Ayurvedic Medicine have been using honey for thousands of years to strengthen the semen of men. If impotent men regularly take two tablespoon of honey before going to sleep, their problem will be solved.

In China, Japan and Far-East countries, women, who do not conceive and need to strengthen the uterus, have been taking cinnamon powder for centuries. Women who
cannot conceive may take a pinch of cinnamon powder in half teaspoon of honey
and apply it on the gums frequently throughout the day, so that it slowly mixes with the saliva and enters the body.

A couple in Maryland, USA, had no children for 14 years and had lost hope of having a child of their own. When told about this process, husband and wife started taking honey and cinnamon as stated above; the wife conceived after a few months and had twins at full term.

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomachache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS: According to the studies done in India & Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food, relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient, which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly arrests the ravages of old age. Take 4 spoons of honey, 1 spoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.

Life spans also increases and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of Honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wa**** next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS: Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month 3 times a day.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon power in equal parts, are more alert and flexible.

Dr. Milton who has done research says that a half tablespoon honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3.00 p.m. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America, first thing in the morning gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in ho****er. So their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder taken in equal parts restore hearing.

*NOTE:The honey used needs to be REAL RAW UNPASTEURIZED HONEY. If it says PURE honey it is most likely pasteurized. It is best to only buy honey that says RAW or UNPASTEURIZED on the label. The difference is that the enzymes are all heated out of the pasteurized honey.

Cinnamon and Honey formula for weight loss:

This should be prepared at night before going to bed.

1. Use 1 part cinnamon to 2 parts raw honey. 1/2 tsp cinnamon to 1 tsp honey is recommended but can use more or less as long as in the ratio of 1 to 2. --- so 1 tsp cinnamon to 2 tsp raw honey is ok too as an example.

2. Boil 1 cup...that is 8 oz of water.

3. Pour water over cinnamon and cover and let it steep for 1/2 hour..(30 minutes)

4. Add honey now that it has cooled. Never add honey when it is hot as the heat will destroy the enzymes and other nutrients in the raw honey.

5. Drink 1/2 of this directly before going to bed. The other 1/2 should be covered and refrigerated.

6. In the morning drink the other half that you refirgerated...but do not re-heat it...drink it cold or at room temp only.

Do not add anything else to this recipe. No lemon, no lime, no vinegar. It is not necessary to drink it more time in a day...it is only effective on an empty stomach and primarily at night.

This works for most people. Inches are lost before any measurement on the scales. This program will cause significant inches lost...but you will reach a plateau and may not lose anymore. This is because the cinnamon and honey cause a cleansing effect in the digestive tract and cleans out parasites and other fungus and bacteria that slow down the digestion...causing a toxic build up. (Lowers pH) Once this is all cleaned out then you will most likely have the weight loss slow down.

Other side effects from a cleansing can occur because of toxins being released...if this occurs, cut back on how much you use or take a break.

Additionally people report increased energy, more sex drive, and feeling happier/mood enhancer.

I have heard from western MD's whom I trust that cinnamon is helpful for those with insulin resistance.

Honey is a simple carb--for those who are carb sensitive, like me, I'm not sure that ingesting it in large amounts would be such a good idea. But there are certainly other uses for it that would be fine for people who are carb sensitive. For instance, I have a honey based wound care dressing that I use instead of neosporin. It's some special kind of honey from New Zealand that has anti-bacterial properties.

Reading the list, I do wonder if some of the info might have originated with people who have a vested interest in selling/marketing raw honey? Just a though.  I like natural stuff but also like to check these things out with sources that I trust and who won't benefit financially from my purchase of a specific product.

I agree with you. I did alot of research on this issue. My father is a bee keeper and has even let them sting his hands when he has an arthritis flare up. I checked the information out with several nurses and my family doctor who believes in holistic approaches before synthetic. All I know is that when I put it on my elbows everyday for weeks (maybe 2 months****pt it bandaged and covered while I was treating it. My psoriasis went away and that has been two years ago.
I'm up for anything that helps but, I also don't want to give in to gimmicks. I have a cousin who is a nurse and she checked it out thouroughly and said it isn't a scam that it is real.
My father was telling us how honey is the only edible source that does not expire. He said that when they opened some famous eqyptian tomb and in amoungst the artifacts that had been buried with this person was some honey. My father said that still today if you put that in the microwave and softened it, you would be able to eat it. I say, ICK but, it is quite amazing how it never expires.

I'm interested in how you used it for your psoriasis.  What mix did you use (honey/cinnamon) or did you use only the honey or the cinnamon.  I'd really like to try it.  Thanks

I used some of my fathers natural honey (from his bees) and I made a mixture of 50/50 honey and cinnamon. I kept it in a little jar and every night before bed I would clean my elbows and just put a gob on with a q-tip and then cover it with bandaids. I usually had to use 2 or 3 because it would goosh out on me. Anyway, in the morning when I take my bath I would clean it off and use my pumice stone to take off any loose skin. After my bath I would apply another gob and more bandaids and I did this for probably two months. Even when it seemed gone, I would still do that every night. I did miss some nights or days but, I kept it on as much as possible. I have even used it as a facial scrub. It's sticky icky but, it really works. I was amazed that my psoriasis has not come back in 2 years. My father even used it on my mothers leg when she was broke out. She has sever diabetes and gets celulitis on her legs. She has been hospitalized a few times for it. Anyway, he has used it for some of her break outs early and it really has helped. My father is a bit of a health nut, he takes a spoonful of honey and fresh chopped garlic every day. Eats it raw (ick) and man does it give him bad breath but, he is 76 years old has a large yard he takes care of. He is a bee keeper and president of the master gardeners association in our town. I don't know how the man does it. He acts like he is 60.
Good luck using it!! Let me know how it turns out.

Wow--your dad is a brave guy!

It's great to hear about the psoriasis getting better. I wonder if the reason it works is related to the reason that it works for wounds? Kinda makes me think I might want to put it on the dry patches on my elbows (which I think might be very mild eczema).

Upon rereading my message, I want to apologize--I didn't mean to sound like I was trying to blow the wind out our your sails. I guess I was just a little cautious about the honey being taken internally because it is a simple sugar and those can be problematic for weight loss (and RNYers could potentially have dumping symptoms.)  But certainly some of these other benefits sound very interesting.

Oh thats ok, I understand the concern with ingesting it. I had a diet doctor once who told me honey was fattening and then said that taken in mild amounts daily would be ok. I actually don't even like the taste of honey but, I have put it in smoothies or coffee before. I am just amazed by the reaction on the skin when you apply it topically. Do use it for your elbows it will do wonders. I have used it as a face scrub since the cinnamon has like granuales that work to scrub the face and pores. It's just sticky and gooey to use but, the face feels clean after using it. Good luck with the elbows.

Honey is amazing. I know a girl through another messgae board that had an open wound for MONTHS! A man that owned honey bees sent her some of his raw honey. After applying the raw honey to it, it started healing and looking pink and healthy after 3 days! It was amazing.

Well, after reading your initial post and that your dad was a beekeeper and let himself be stung on purpose to get help w/his arthritis, I read up on the bee sting therapy a little bit. Wow--who knew!?

Well, you knew, of course! I had never heard of it before but I'm intrigued. I don't have arthritis but I do have a repetitive stress injury in both hands (not quite carpal tunned, but a similar kind of thing without a specific diagnosis). And my mom has arthritis and knee pain. So I am going to look into this more and mention it to her.

Sorry for my initial skepticism. I'm afraid that I may have come off as wanting to "knock" what you had to say because I was worried about the idea of consuming too much honey internally. I owe you an apology--your post had a lot of good info in it.

I'm a little nervous about the idea of being stung by a bee (I've never been stung before) but I am thinking it might be worth trying it once to see if I can get some relief for my hands.

Thanks for putting up with me even if I was being a smarty pants!

HA! Don't be silly. I am skeptical of alot of things and don't usually throw any of my own advice out there unless I'm sure. I'm not even big on the taste of honey but, what I have learned about it just amazes me. My father also takes a garlic clove crushes it and mixes it with a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of lemon and will just eat that before he goes to bed. Talk about bad breath!!  but, those are all three very healthy ingredients for the body. Keep in touch and let me know what you find out. I'm so glad you have been researching it and sure hope it can help you with your hands. I will say a little prayer.
