medicianal properties of honeycomb?
Recently, I started coming down with a cold, which I was dreading because I always get deathly ill from colds--turns into bronchitis--nasty. Anyway, I had brought a few frames of honey from the farm into my house, and I started cutting out cubes of honeycomb everyday and eating a little. To my surprise, I started getting better within a few days. I've heard rumors about the medicinal properties of honey (at least the fresh stuff on the comb, unheated and unfiltered), but I've never seen any research on it. We all know that bacteria and fungi can't live in honey, which is remarkable because it's mostly sugar, which these microorganisms thrive on, but apparently viruses can't live in honey either. If anybody has any more info on the medicianal properties of honeycomb, or any personal annecdotes, I'd love to hear more on the subject.
