Manuka Honey Cure-All

I used to have a hundred things I would do whenever myself or anyone else in my family was getting sick. Drink green tea, vitamin C, wellness shots, etc. While all that can’t hurt, once I found this, it’s now the only thing I need to take.

I swear to you, I am not exaggerating, the minute you or anyone in your family (OVER THE AGE OF 1 and check with your doctor if pregnant) feel the slightest bit sick; stomach ache, sore throat, runny nose, upset stomach, anything, take a huge spoonful of this. The minute I see my kids nose running I give them a huge tablespoon in the morning and another one that night and they wake up fine the following day. If I’m feeling a sore throat coming on I take 2 huge spoonfuls and wake up great. Studies show that honey actually works better than cough syrup.

But all Manuka honeys are not created equal. It needs to say UMF and be 20+. which stands for Unique Manuka Factor. The UMF rating reflects the concentration of MG. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, Manuka honey needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF. If it doesn’t have these letters you are wasting your money and can just buy regular organic honey for much cheaper and it will work the same.

The only 2 Manuka honeys I buy are below. It’s expensive but worth it. I haven’t been able to find any markets that sell it with a UMF of 20+ so I always get mine on amazon.
