Quite a few studies here. Even good for resistant bacteria. Don't think it will feed the yeasties. Apparently has some hydrogen peroxide effect.

All my life I have used honey in the ways mentioned in the link you gave. We use it for burns, sore throats, wounds, I bake with it make lemon juice with it (for double benefit of lemon and honey) and so many other things. The only negative I have found is that when it warms up from your body heat, it runs more easily and so can get a bit messy!
However, I use the honey bought from aviaries right around us (not the pasturized store type where the enzmyes have been killed). I know that the source of the pollen is important for the taste and efficacy of the honey but I have never bought expensive honey and have had excellent results with every use I have put it to.

Hi Chris

I think any natural honey is good to use along with foods like blueberry's ect..

But for me the honey makes my yeast problem worse. [Frown]

It is not reccomended on a strick anti-yeast diet. It converts into sugar in the blood stream. If you have yeast issues or are on abx I would definetly say be careful.

This is NOT regular honey. Do not confuse the two. It is antibacterial and proven to kill bacteria that are antibiotic resistant in the gut.

Read the link.

Be well.
