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. Carolyn

Hi Neilep!How are your bitransplanted knees doing?What do you need Manuka honey/oil for...infection? Explosive rejection? I told youthat it was a cheap clinic and that Mr. Whoknowswhat not such top-notch...professional!Free radical production and quenching in honeys with wound healing potential.Henriques A, Jackson S, Cooper R, Burton N. School of Applied Sciences, University of Wales Institute Cardiff Llandaf Campus, Western Avenue, Cardiff CF5 2YB, UK.OBJECTIVES: Honey-impregnated wound dressings are now available on drug tariff in the UK, though the modes of action of honeys with antibacterial and wound healing properties are not entirely clear. The action of some but not all of these honeys is linked to the production of hydrogen peroxide on dilution of the honey with wound exudate. The present study investigates both free radical production and the antioxidant potential of some honeys, properties which may have a role to play in wound healing.METHODS: Free radical production and quenching of three honey types (manuka, antibacterial but non-peroxide-producing; pasture, antibacterial peroxide-producing; commercial heat processed, non-antibacterial) was investigated by electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy; quenching was also examined using a superoxide quenching assay.RESULTS: All honeys tested had antioxidant potential, with manuka able to completely quench added radicals within 5 min of spiking. Only the peroxide-producing honey (pasture PS9) was found to form radicals on dilution.CONCLUSIONS: The ability to modulate production and quenching of free radicals may contribute to the demonstrated ability of some honeys to help in resolving the state of inflammation typifying chronic wounds.J Antimicrob Chemother. 2006 Oct;58(4):773-7. ...sorry, you cannot view external links.

Hey Iko, Thanks I thought that was what it was..I know there must be some health benefit somewhere, but I am not sure I want to go grab a bunch of it and start using it! LOL Maybe some of the things look interesting... Benefits would be great!
I had a serious infection on my lower leg that nothing seemed to help. I took Manuka Honey,mixed with Cayenne, smeared that on a large band-aid. It took less than two weeks for the infection to completely heal. A doctor friend says that he frequetly uses table sugar on problem infections.
Some doctors use this natural remedyon a routine basis and share positiveexperience reporting their data:Manuka honey dressing: An effective treatment for chronic wound infectionsVisavadia BG, Honeysett J, Danford MH.Maxillofacial Unit, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Egerton Road, Guildford Surrey, UK.The battle against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) wound infection is becoming more difficult as drug resistance is widespread and the incidence of MRSA in the community increases. Manuka honey dressing has long been available as a non-antibiotic treatment in the management of chronic wound infections. We have been using honey-impregnated dressings successfully in our wound care clinic and on the maxillofacial ward for over a year.Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2006 Nov 17;
Iko That is really cool. Sounds like a promising study!
