It’s a question that people ask us almost daily.
Does honey heal? We are always really careful about how we answer. Honey is an incredible thing. It has an eternal shelf life, it’s packed with nutrients, and it may very well have some medical uses.
At Waxing Kara, we’re not doctors (so don’t use this for your medical advice!) but we have done our research on the uses of honey. Based off of several studies, there is evidence to show support that answers this question. Honey is used as an antibacterial agent and as a tool to help wound healing.
We all know that honey can help to soothe a sore throat, but what else can it do?
Does Honey Heal?
A 2008 study by the University of Bonn in Bonn, Germany showed that there is potential for using honey as an antibacterial agent on patients with suppressed immune systems.
Some types of honey, specifically Manuka honey, can possibly stimulate the body into producing monocytes that fight infections. Although there is a lack of completely conclusive evidence, if this can be proven true, it would make honey a powerful pharmaceutical.
So, does honey heal the body? Until further research gives us a clear answer, we can’t be sure.
