Honey and Cinnamon – Delicious and Healthy
One of my friends sent me a list of natural remedies on the benefits of honey and cinnamon. I do not know where this list of natural remedies originated from…but I do believe in the medicinal properties of honey and cinnamon.
My husband was a commercial beekeeper for many years, so perhaps I am a little biased after seeing all the wonderful uses..and all my friend knows I am a lover of honey remedies!
Foods As Medicine
I am assuming most of you have heard about honey having medicinal properties. There was a lot of media attention a few years ago about the benefits of honey…and cinnamon benefits are also documented.
Did you know cinnamon has benefits too? Anyway, without further comments by me, here is the information that was forwarded on to me.
I haven’t edited it at all. It is written by another person and I am not claiming this work as my own. It is exactly how I received it. (Just to make that clear to everyone.) I do not know who wrote it.
Now after you read all these benefits of honey and cinnamon, I would love to hear your comments below! Please talk to me there and share your thoughts.
Honey and Cinnamon Remedies
It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus.
Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

Health Benefits of Cinnamon
Cinnamon Helps Lower Blood Sugar Levels
So do you have any more benefits of honey and cinnamon to add?
I have one more 🙂 If you have a cut or wound (not just a skin infection as mentioned above) or a splinter that won’t come out…dab some honey and cinnamon on the area and cover with a dressing overnight. By morning the healing is amazing and the splinter is removed easily. It is an excellent “drawing” medicine.
