I saw Manuka in a shop today. Is it really so good ? It is rather expensive

Hi osha, I take Manuka honey at least 3 times a week, well I am a sweet tooth anyway lol but since I eat it , I believe it has helped me to push my immune system up a bit because I have been less sick a bit of a cold but not as serious I had in the past. But we'll I also have started to take maximum strength from seven sees both nearly a year. So I believe it works for me, special when I have a sore throat as soon as I feel it I take the Manuka πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹yum yum definitely worth a try. I know it works not for everyone and can be quite expensive. 😘

Hi Sandy- like yourself, I too suffer prolonged infections and loss of voice. One time I lost my voice for 4 months. The last 2 infections, I felt like giving up and posted on here. The support was fab and helped me enormously.

I take manuka honey, mainly when I'm ill (violent coughing bursts) or have voice problems. It seems to help Manuka and lemon in hot water, manuka on toast and spoons of manuka. You can get it in different strengths and if you haven't tried it before I suggest you get a lower strength as the higher ones do not taste very nice.

I just bought strength 5 from Aldi last time and practically went through a jar a day. In the past I have bought up to 30+ from Holland and Barrett.

Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear of your trials & tribulations, hope you are on the mend.

The voice thing, have you tried a steam inhaler (available from Amazon for around Β£3.00) take it after meds then do some voice exercises, the voice should come back , if not get your G.P to send you ENT at local hospital. Have been through the same thing it worked for me.#
