local honey as a cure?

I've heard from a friend of mine that local honey might be an alternative cure. She tried it and it helped her. There are lots of bad reviews on the net, saying it's a myth, but I don't care, traditional medicine didn't helped me so far either! So i will give it a try. Can't hurt and it's cheap and I even like the taste.
Have you guys ever tried it?

Re: local honey as a cure?

I know some people for whom it has worked. However, I tried it and it did nothing.
If it's good honey and you don't mind eating it, give it a shot. I think I'm allergic to just too many things.

Allergies will be worse or better based off your immune system period.80% of the immune system is in your gut so its safe to say the better the gut health the better the immune system .The liver and gallbladder need to be running well to to clean the blood one relies on the other

Re: local honey as a cure?

It makes no sense. Pollens that cause allergies are from wind pollinated plants, like trees and grasses. Bee pollinated flowers do not produce allergens. The allergy commercials on television drive me crazy. Colorful flowers do not produce allergens and the worker bees that pollinate them are females not males!
