Manuka Honey
« on: 09/09/2006 23:30:22 »
I have recently heard amazing stories of the properties of Manuka Honey http://www.manukahoney.co.uk/news.html  

I understand it is an accredited treatment in many hospitals. Has anyone tried it before ? It seems to be an amazing versatile healer...from application upon the skin and for consumption

It's not cheap though...but I feel tempted to order a jar just to see....but before I do I was wondering if anyone here has tried it ?...ot at least know of it !!

I checked out the site but still have never really heard about that particular product but I do know that old naturalists have used it for years... Somewhere I have a recipe for a poultice my Grandmother used that had honey in it.. It also was for open wounds etc.

This  Manuka Honey (By The Way...you're a Honey too Karen !! :))....This Honey is like the Crown Jewels of Honey...it is the El Big Bosso and is unlike any other type.  It seems to have incredible abilities for wound healing.

Now , I am not promoting it as a Panacea ...in fact I am not promoting it at all...but the news articles are interesting and I recently heard quite a bit on the radio about it....which originally sparked my interest.

It would be great to good a professional opinion too.

Why Thank-You Kind Sir Your pretty sweet yourself!! I will keep an  ear open for more of this kind of information as it could be really beneficial to keeping one healthy! Kind of a natural healing thing, don't ya think... I am all for natural remedies... especially when they make you feel so much better! Are their any chemical agents in it,,,I don't recall but believe I thought it was natural! Best go back and check it out... I wonder if it has the sticky quality raw honey has or if they have processed it in a way to prevent that.. Although I thought it was also edible, ooops yes it is for consumption also.. I just looked at your post again..! Maybe like you said , someone else might have a professional opinion that would provide a good examination of the product and perhaps a opinion from that stand point.
  Sir did you look through all the pages, as I have and they have tons a stuff. If I were to think too hard I think I would like the hand cream with lavender honey!Did you happen to notice that many of the honey products have been,uh......shoot, I can't remember if they were radiated or eradiated...LOL what the heck does that mean and why would they do that? Why would it have to be radiated and would that be leaving any side or ill effects in the product to pass on to the recipient of said product? AM I just being a worry wort or what?

I made a special cod liver oil topic for you in 'Complementary Medicine'...far away from docs!
You may visit it for free (just tell them that you are my friendo,  you know...it's an italian topic!)

Sir I am sure I do not know what you mean by your previous post seems to be talking to me? Am I mistaken!! I have already checked out your cod liver oil post and do not understand your message!! I do not know you at all! Or know a reason to visit it for free  and tell them you are my friend when I don't know you... I am sorry, please do not take offence.. as I have not got a clue and feel I should as the message in these two threads are confusing to me! Maybe You should talk with Neil Or George they may be able to help you out!

KarenW: you probably misunderstood me. I'm sorry.
It was a joke about we italians that do everything through friends...next time I'll keep my mouth shut: you need to be mother-language for certain things (actually I knew it).

Neilep:  Sorry, I don't know anything about Manuka Honey. What the heck is a 5star withdrawnmist?

Karen, definitely a misunderstanding that's all. IKO's English even puts mine to shame !!...

I love Italy so much ...Florence is my favourite city......where do you live IKO ?

When me and the wifey were there 13 years ago we did Rome , Florence and Venice in ten days. To this day it was the best holiday we have ever had. The Italians are a beautiful and so well turned out people...and the  ice cream!!.....oh my !!!!....you have not had ice cream till you've had Italian Ice cream in Italy !!!

Neil - Very interesting.  I have severe heartburn and acid reflux.  It's torture.  I did a little research on this and I think I'm going to order some as well.  I believe I'm also going to try the oil and soap.  You know - teenagers and acne.  Let me know if you get some and how it worked.

I am seriously considering it Mam.

I suppose it's not that much to spend considering the possible benefits. I will keep you appraised...as we hope you will do too Mam.  :)

London! I spent 2 years in Du Cane rd...Hammersmith Hospital 1979-81.
Camden market, Portobello rd. and Notting hill Carneval...
I have beautiful memories of that city.  We might visit it again for a weekend, who knows.
