Honey & Cinnamon

Honey & Cinnamon

Someone sent me this info yesterday and I thought it was worth passing on. I don't think it would hurt anyone trying it no matter what medication you are taking and if it works thats a bonus. I have added a link from the Snopes website at the end so you can decide what you think about the validity of it all.

There is no info on what type of honey you need to use either so no point in spending lots on expensive Manuka Honey, just try buying some from your local Farmers Market which is what I do to put on my toast!

Let me know how you get on if you do try it.

Great information!! Cinnamon and Honey...! Drug companies won't like this one getting around.

Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:

It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus. Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder....who knew?

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!

GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

WEIGHT LOSS:Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

  • Somebody sent me this last week.. I can imagine it would taste nice. I certainly take a strong dose of tumeric daily along with my other supplements. MaryF

  • I put cinnamon- Nutmeg-- cloves and apple pie spice in all cooking and baking -

    I made and distributed 32 dozen cookies from 2 weeks before Christmas till New Years

    Brought to all Dc's Offices -and they all had these ingredient's-- They wait for them every years .

  • I would love that recipe.

  • Lesley and I will give it a go.


  • Be careful with cinnamon and warfarin. I have taken cinnamon capsules with warfarin for years, but with the consistency of the capsule, I had no problems, so it can be done. However, a few years ago I found a new high fiber cereal with cinnamon, and though I'm usually careful, I didn't realize how much I was eating (used as a dry snack). My INR was way out of range. It took me some time to figure out why it happened(had a couple other medical issues at the time), but as soon as I stopped the cereal, my INR was in range.

  • It is important that you look which cinnamon you take. Other one that is more common (cassia) is not as healty as the other one (ceylon). whfoods.com/genpage.php?tna...

  • I started taking cinnamon sometime ago after reading it reduced inflammation together with apple cider vinegar & honey.

    Every morning when oi get up i take in a glass of warm water the above with ginger added, a little cinnamon & sometimes add a little black pepper........all the ingredients i have read that help with different ailments.

    I havn't tried making it into a paste for spreading so i'm putting that one on my breakfast list.

    I must say the arthritic pain is a lot less since i have started taking it, i cant say it has helped with the plaquenil gas problem. phew it's evil. :-(

    Happy New Year. x

  • I've been ill over the last few weeks with this horrible flu and I done a honey and lemon drink and it helped ease the symptoms loads so it's worth a try it can't hurt at all

  • Thank you so much. I love it. It certainly can't hurt and I have a cold after spending time with my grandchildren who have colds. I'll definitely try it.

  • I have had spurts of hypoglycemia from time to time in my life. A few years ago I ran across a suggestion that cinnamon can help stabilize blood sugar. And, the site went on to say -- only a little bit is needed; less then 1/8 tea to help regulate blood sugar.

    So I gave it a try -- and either it worked, or that latest bout with low blood sugar coincidentally went away at the same time. I will admit, since my sugar has stabilized I don't use cinnamon every day, but if I notice a late morning or late afternoon weakness and alarm I will return to the cinnamon next day and that will bring another end to these moments.

    Perhaps now I will make sure I consume some every day. Cinnamon with morning tea, turmeric with my evening hot milk.

    Thanks for the insight!

  • Are you completely sure it is low blood sugar which is causing your symptoms?

    The symptoms of a TIA (due to APLS) can be misdiagnosed as low low blood sugar.

    Have all the relevant tests been done to look at whether the blood sugar is actually low for example that test where you fast and then get bold sugar tested the next morning?

    I do know that doctors have misdiagnosed the 2 conditions in the past.

  • I will try it as it is APsnotFab suggesting it.


  • Well, well, well. It seems that cinnamon is yet another common food stuff that acts against staphylococcus. Often a bacteria implicated in sore throats.

    I have been taking cayenne pepper with honey in water for sore throats as that also fights staph.

    Its amazing just how many old wives tales regarding using common food stuffs to combat infections can now be proven to be immersed in fact.

    I suffer from finger ulcers and one needed some extra care recently. The doctors told me that staphylococcus was often implicated so i googled for staph killers.

    2 things that showed up were bicarb of soda and apple cider vinegar. So i mixed some in an egg cup and stuck my finger in it. Next day there was a crust over the ulcer. But it stopped oozing and the infection level seemed reduced as there was less pain.

    The kitchen cupboard can be a powerful medicine cabinet

  • They say that there is a cure for everything in our rain forests or at least it is grown somewhere on this planet.......and we are chopping it down...sigh!
