    Default Interesting Article On Use Of Honey For Wound Healing

    Found on Dr. Mercola's website: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/ar...0220_DNL_art_1

    Story at-a-glance
    \

    Certain types of honey, such as Manuka, have been shown to be more effective than antibiotics in the treatment of serious, hard-to-heal skin infections
    The only types of honey you should ever attempt to use for wound care are Manuka honey or raw (unprocessed) honey. Conventional “Grade A” type honey found in most grocery stores may actually worsen infection and should never be applied to wounds
    Clinical trials have found Manuka honey can effectively eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria, including resistant varieties such as MRSA.

    Note that there are several mechanisms that honey employs to be an effective support for certain types of wound, and most of these are offered by most if not all types of honey. The only part that Manuka honey additionally offers is the UMF, which while well-documented (and super cool) is only a supporting player in the complex mechanism of how honey heals.

    Just finished a fascinating book,"Two Million Blossoms" by Traynor on the history and healing properties of honey. Got it from Amazon.

    I thought this was common knowledge for any type of honey. We use a salve made with bee wax and honey.

    I don't currently have a lot of store honey in my house, so feel pretty safe to use mine medicinally and do and it works.

    On that same website is this nature video on CCD. It appears to be older.

    I got a copy of it for Christmas and was amazed at some of the studies/stories in the book.
