This episode’s health tip is involving the use of raw or Manuka honey to treat minor to moderate abrasions, scrapes and burns. This practice has been documented as far back as Egyptian times as a very effective method of wound care. The mechanism of action from the sugar found in the honey acts as an osmotic effect and dehydrates the germ cells and effectively kills them. Raw honey is a natural antibiotic, antimicrobial, and anti fungal! I suggest using this ONLY for minor to moderate wounds. If you are at all experiencing, fever, redness, swelling, drainage, lethargy or dizziness please immediately go and see your health care provider as these may be signs and symptoms of an infection that needs to be treated with conventional antibiotics.

Directions for use on mild-moderate wounds:
1) Throughly wash the affected area with warm soap and water
2) Pat dry
3) Place a small amount of raw honey over the affected area
4) Place band-aid or bandage over affected area

Repeat these steps daily until wound healing is complete. It is VERY IMPORTANT to change your dressing daily and to watch for signs or symptoms of infection. Again if you are ever in doubt, please see your health care provider or go to the nearest emergency room.

I hope that we can implementing these holistic, real food approach to health care before we bring out the Neosporin tube! Using these methods will help reduce cases of antibiotic resistant organisms. Happy Listening and Happy Health Care!
