I have been reading alot about the effects of manuka honey on the bowels and the digestive system. Apparently it is very good for IBS and helps to soothe the gut and bowels, replenish good bacteria in the system in most bowel and digestive disorders. It is very expensive. I purchased the one with a high manuka factor rating..........over 20, which the higher the better, most start at 6.
I bought some on thursday, i got it shipped over to the UK from new zealand. Anyway i have been taking it since thursday and i have some big improvements!!!!! The diarreha has slowed down, i am not getting bloated as much, my pain on the right side has lessened (i would assume i had inflammation there) and in general i don't have that horrible sickly, run down feeling in my abdomen anymore.
I'm going to do abit of a trial............i am going to stay on the manuka honey for another week, then come off it and see what happens to my gut, abdomen, bowels etc.............if i go back to feeling ill then i know for sure the honey is working!!
So, watch this space
and if it works they i will let you know and maybe try it out for yourself.
