Let's talk Honey!

I am an allergy suffer.  Every Spring, Summer, Fall... every time the weather changes... I have to deal with a runny nose, sore throat... and most recently... an ear ache.  I have taken so many over the counter meds for my allergies that I now know what brand affects me ... so I can stay away from them.

When we recently moved, I was suffering more than the usual. I was told time and time again to try locally farmed honey.  I was told that it would help relieve my allergy symptoms.  I had never heard of it before, but hey.. what's it going to hurt.

I went to a local gas/ grocery store and pick up some honey farmed right there in town.  Let me tell you, I am not (or was not) a fan of honey.  I remember when I was a child my mother giving my honey and lemon juice to drink when I had a cold... I hated the stuff! LOL...   I began taking one tablespoon in the morning and one in the evening.  This locally grown honey is very sweet, and very taste... so I had no problems getting it down.  After a few days, I realized that I was no longer suffering the runny nose and sinus drainage.

I have found out that there are some great benefits to consuming honey.   

  • Honey is a natural energy booster.   Who knew that taking honey could give you that boost of energy you so needed.

  • Honey is a great immunity builder.  I found that if you take in locally farmed honey, it will help you build immunities to those allergens  that bother you.  

So, If you have allergies.. try honey.  I never thought it would help... but  I can say...I was wrong!

    Honey is great for so many things. I eat a tiny drop of honey when I'm craving sweet. That's all it takes to get rid of my sweet tooth and saves me tons of calories.

    Great information for allergy sufferers - my daughter and I being in this category.

Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
