Honey Can Help Heal Cuts And Burns

June 19, 2012 by  

In ancient Egypt honey was used to help heal cuts and burns. Hippocrates used it on skin problems. Romans used it for cleansing wounds.

Now, centuries later, scientists are discovering that this prized bee product can be good modern medicine — especially as a dressing to prevent burns and wounds from becoming infected. One study published in the Cochrane Library showed that honey may promote faster healing of mild or moderate burns than regular dressings, and other studies have shown that honey can aid in healing wounds.

Honey appears to help increase the rate of both new tissue growth and the removal of dead tissue around the wound. It also contains natural hydrogen peroxide, which helps with healing.

    Freiunds involved in wound care have been telling us about this for several years, and we have been using it ourselves in treaments of burns we received. The efficacy seems to vary with the variety of plants available where the honey is grown, One variety out of New Zealand, Manuka honey, seems to have very high levels of antibacterial properties and is one seen quite often in medical circles. There will be a number associated with it’s efficacy, what we get at the local Earthfare store is running around 15. It is my understanding that medical grade is about double that.

    Another product we have come across recently has been elderberry juice, which is a natural antiviral. We have made jel;ly and wine out of these berries for years, bur have just recently started it as a treatment and preventative during flu season. It does seem to shorten the duration and lessen the symptoms somewhat.

    So do you just pour it on the wound or do you apply it to a bandage or do you wash it off after five minutes? How do you effectively use this wonder?
