See what questions
a doctor would ask.
Honey is well known to have medicinal properties, but contrary to popular belief it is not a healthier alternative to sugar. It has more energy than jam, marmalade and sugar, although it does have allergy, antioxidant, antiseptic, antibacterial and digestive benefits. Honey has been found to assist with conditions such as wound healing, sore throat, dental caries, gingivitis, and gastroenteritis. Manuka honey from New Zealand also has the added bonus of being highly effective against MRSA, or golden staph, a resistant bacteria.
