Asthma Natural Remedy: Local Honey

Love The Bees! Can Honey Help Your Asthma?

Honey is a Power Food

Honey is a pure, natural food. It is in its perfect, finished form in nature. There is no artificial processing required before it can grace your table. These are the best types of foods for asthmatics. Asthma Power Foods are foods that are in their most natural state, coming straight from nature, organic, ripe, grown as close to your home location as possible (very little transportation of the food).

Honey as a Natural Asthma Remedy

Natural asthma treatments regularly look at what type of asthma you have (intrinsic, extrinsic, infectious, etc…). Then the focus is on strengthening systems and prevention. So, for example, if you have allergy-induced asthma, then preventing exposure (staying away or limiting triggers) and strengthening the immune system are very important for reducing your asthma symptoms and improving the quality of your life.

If you have allergies to pollens from trees and plants that grow near your home, honey from your home area is purported to help boost your immunity to these allergens. Honey won’t cure your asthma, but it can certainly help if it is part of a natural asthma health plan.

Happy Bees and Local Farmers

Use pure, unadulterated, local, organic, honey from local farmers or markets that is harvested using traditional and ethical methods.

Suggested Use

It has been suggested that for the optimum benefit you should start taking honey every day for a few months prior to the pollen season. Suggested “dose” is 2 teaspoons/day to 2 teaspoons twice a day (2 tsps in the morning and 2 tsps in the evening).
