Well, I was home sick Monday and I sat browsing the Internet. I came across manuka honey, from New Zealand. Hmmm.... so I ran out to the health food store, bought a jar of it for $16.99 (YES!), some freshly made lentil soup, and settled in for lunch. One of the Internet articles said to eat a teaspoon of the manuka honey with lemon, so I did. This is after I spent over an hour in a raging coughing fit, to the point that I was physically EXHAUSTED! I heated up the soup, ate it (yummy!) and waited an hour, then took the honey. I haven't coughed SINCE! Man, that stuff WORKS! Apparently manuka honey is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and is one of the FEW known compounds that resists the bacteria that is spreading around hospitals! Read up on it! It ONLY comes from New Zealand, which is why it is so expensive. It is extremely thick and dark. I'm sold on it! I took some about 1:00 yesterday afternoon, and I've only coughed ONCE SINCE then! Speaking of honey, that's little Cali! She is such a sweetheart! I MISS my horses~I'll try to get up to see them one afternoon this week. I'm already starting to feel better!~I can feel my energy coming back! THANK YOU MANUKA HONEY!
