My two new best friends ~
honey and cinnamon!


My friend Pastor Leanne Weber did an excellent blog post yesterday on the healing power of honey and cinnamon. I wholeheartedly believe in this. Yes, I believe in the power of divine healing but I believe God has also given us other means by which to physically heal us at times. I encourage you to click the link to her post and see just how amazing these two ingredients are and what God made them to do.

As most of you know I've been sick for two months ever since I got back from Africa. Last week I had every test you can imagine. It appears my stomach problems have returned. I have an appointment with a specialist on the 29th. However, I have this thing I love to do ~ sleep. And with the pain I've been in it's been impossible to sleep or get comfortable during the day either. I have been trying everything OTC you can imagine. The other day I was surfing for "natural cures" and lo and behold I heard about honey. I tried it and in just two times of taking a teaspoon of honey I started to feel a little better. Please understand, I am not pain free yet however it has greatly improved after three days of taking teaspoons of honey whenever I feel the worst, plus taking a teaspoon right before I go to sleep. I have actually gotten rest the past few nights. Turning over does not wake me up because I feel pain.

I just want to let everyone know about this so that if you are dealing with any of the kind of pain Leanne's post describes, try honey first. You might be surprised!

A guy I used to work with is a beekeeper in addition to being a college professor, and he also told me that eating locally made honey will help with allergies - because you're taking in a little bit of the pollen you're exposed to every day to protect yourself against a lot of it (sort of the same principle as vaccinations).
