Thanks to Cheryl for this great and informative posting!-A.M.
Here is another great article about the amazing benefits of honey (and cinnamon)
Also, I am including the comments made by Gary Collier, in response to my previous email re: honey & cinnamon, for your awareness.
Gary’s Comments:
honey_bee_cone_zps2c767868Like most articles of this kind, the author does not define “honey”.   If you saw my recent mailing about the faux “honey” being sold in grocery stores (that is mostly high-fructose corn syrup), you know that it is important to be clear about this issue.  By “honey”, one should be referring to organic, uncooked, infiltered, locally-grown honey preferably bought directly from a beekeeper.  (I have been told by a beekeeper that even some “organic” beekeepers feed their bees non-organic stuff during the wintertime, rendering the next-year‘s honey effectively non-organic.)

Note:  Honey can be filtered at home with cheesecloth and the application of some heat, as long as the temperature is maintained below 105 degrees F.  Any temp over that will start destroying the proteins, enzymes and vitamins in the honey and pollen.  It’s best to filter it yourself and not trust that somebody else didn’t overcook it….

Cinnamon is great, but it is more effective with women than men.  Cinnamon can actually clog up a guy’s plumbing if overused, so caution should be exercised….

One thing the article didn’t mention:  Bed-wetting.   A teaspoon of real honey right before bedtime for children who are still wetting the bed after a certain age will cure it in no time….
