Ademidun Abimbola: A Wonder Drug-Raw Honey
Some days ago, I had this irritation in my throat, the kind of feeling that you have when you are about to have a cough. So I began to ponder how to explain to the doctor at the hospital especially with the way doctors at the hospital I use “interrogate”.
Suddenly, I remembered reading somewhere that honey is good for throat irritation, so I took about 2 tablespoons of honey that night. By the following morning, I was feeling better. This encouraged me to take another 2 tablespoons thrice that day. After 3 days of using honey, the throat irritation disappeared.
There are so many natural products around us that we have overlooked but can do wonders, one of such is raw honey and I tell you, you can never take an overdose of honey (moderation is key). Today, I will like to discuss the benefits of honey. Honey is one of the oldest sweeteners on earth and its health benefits cannot be overemphasized.
