hi I’m nursing Amy from doomandbloom.net
co-author of the survival
medicine handbook I’m also a certified
nurse midwife and rants registered nurse
practitioner and a prepper
I love honey always have always will
my love of honey has grown deeper as I
discover all the wonderful properties it
possesses as my research into
alternative natural remedies has grown
and progressed I find raw unprocessed
honey which is the only honey you should
buy mentioned in nearly every source I
find and so I thought I would share some
of that information with you I’ve said
many times before that if a collapse
situation occurs eventually all of us
will run out of pharmaceutical
medications no question about it they
won’t either get used up or become
expired after a long time and eventually
useless so you need to learn how to live
without antibiotics produced in a lab
honey has been used for thousands of
years for its healing properties it was
commonly used until world war ii when
lab antibiotics came into fashion the
use of honey is called APPA therapy
which includes replenishing energy
enhancing physical stamina and improving
immune systems honey is produced in the
bees gut and is then regurgitated into
wax cells within the hive this gut
production is part of the reason for
honey’s healing and antimicrobial
properties it forms a hydrogen peroxide
effect in wounds and destroys bacteria
including MRSA and strep infections
within the wound honey not only destroys
bacterial infections it creates a moist
healing environment that allows skin
cells to regrow naturally this helps
prevent raised scarring honey both
prevents and kills bacterial infections
it has an acidic pH that is inhospitable
for bacteria it also has an osmotic
effect which kills by drawing out fluid
from
the bacteria several studies have shown
honey heals wounds better and faster
with a dramatic increase in infection
rates especially in burn injuries apply
to cuts scrapes burns of any depth if
medical help is not available rashes are
any open skin injury after a good wound
cleaning in the event of a second-degree
or third-degree burn immediate help
should be sought but in the event that
this is not available
using raw honey would be the best choice
for healing and prevention of infection
do not rinse off the honey just add more
once daily and cover with plastic wrap
or clean linen or cotton wrap to hold
the honey in place severe burn patients
are at a serious risk for problems and
need to be monitored by the best medical
personnel possible if you have a fungal
infection raw honey may be something you
want to try apply directly to the
infection cover with the loose gauze a
dressing or a sock if it’s on your feet
honey is known to have a calming effect
on the mind a promotes sleep it may have
a positive effect on heart disease by
reducing c-reactive protein levels honey
may reduce blood sugar levels and help
to stabilize wild swings of highs and
lows it’s also been shown to have
antiviral properties and is used
frequently to combat colds and influenza
honey is useful in the treatment and
prevention of oral infections and
disease it soothes a sore throat and
speeds healing of a strep throat
infection make sure you store honey as
part of your preparedness plan it never
spoils or goes bad if it crystallizes
just heat it up a little bit and it will
be as good as new one more important
piece of advice manuka honey is no
different than regular honey they claim
it’s made from tea tree pollen however
the tea tree they say is a relative and
not the true tea tree called mallow Luka
just check your tea tree oil label this
is a fraud perpetrated to make my
from unsuspecting customers by your
local honey save money and reduce
allergies local honey is made by bees
from pollen that you might be allergic
to
however the minut doses of this allergen
in the honey is like an allergy shot and
will help desensitize you to that pollen
that’s right it helps decrease or
eliminate allergies caused by your local
environment so eat the honey produced in
your area and you’ll be healthier and
save money thanks for watching and don’t
