Dilute Honey ‘May Fight Urine Infections’

Honey has been nature’s antibiotic for centuries and now, according to BBC News, researchers believe that it might hold the key to fighting two common bacteria that cause urine and bladder infections.

I’ve been writing about honey as a valued natural sweetener that doubles as an antifungal, anti-infection and antibacterial product for a long time. The wonders of honey are many: For example, it makes an excellent cough syrup as well as a wound healer for both burns and open infections.

But before you rush off to the store to buy any old jar of honey, be forewarned: It’s a special type of honey called Manuka that the researchers and I are talking about. Manuka honey is made by bees that feed off the flowers of the Manuka bush, a medicinal plant native to New Zealand. Manuka honey is the subject of dozens of clinical trials that have found that it can effectively eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria, including methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).

Unfortunately, investigative reports show that about 75 percent of the honey you find on your grocery store shelf is actually “fake,” and filled with a mixture of sugar water, malt or other sweeteners such as corn syrup, and other additives.

The basic key to keeping your immune system healthy is making good lifestyle choices such as proper diet, stress management and exercise. And, if you choose to use nature’s natural healers, be sure to put Manuka honey on the top of your list.
