Raw Honey is Medicine, Cooked Honey is Poison
We’re all familiar with honey and its
sweet taste. You may have used it as a substitute for sugar in tea or recipes.
But apart from considering it a healthier alternative to sugar, you may be unaware of just how nutritional this natural resource is.
Containing an enzyme that prevents the
growth of certain bacteria, honey has a long history as a antibacterial
treatment for wounds and illnesses. Ancient Chinese medicine uses honey to
neutralize toxins in the body, relieve pain and assist in treating stomach
ulcers.
According to the
traditional medicine of Ayurveda that is native to India, honey is the nectar of
life. Ayurvedic medicine suggests that raw honey is medicine and cooked honey is
poison. Rich in minerals, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and carbohydrates,
honey in its natural form is full of nutritional value. 

Once honey is processed it creates cellular toxicity in the body and is stripped of its
nutritional value. It becomes a mucous-like texture and
can clogs subtle energy channels and arteries.
Uses for Honey in Natural Remedies
  • Improves digestion, as it does not ferment in the stomach
  • Relieves nausea 
  • Helps fight of acne – you can try warming half a teaspoon of honey in your hands and spreading it lightly on your face and leaving it for ten minutes before washing it off.
  • Helps restore sleep – try adding a tablespoon of raw honey to warm milk to increase melatonin production, which helps regulate sleep.
“Raw” or “unpasteurized”
honey is what you should be looking for in stores. Since it’s not processed, it
may appear a little cloudy due to its pollen and nutritional content. Raw honey contains bee pollen that is rich in antioxidants and antimicrobial agents.
Zebra Organics offers several types of raw honey:
