a spoonful of honey

so, like many americans i suffer from seasonal allergies. growing up, i remember my family mentioning the mention of honey in the Qur'an. my aunt has been touting the brilliance of honey for various ailments.

so this past summer i decided to try eating a spoonful of LOCAL, RAW honey every day in hopes of lessening my symptoms. i dunno about everyone else, but i can certainly say that my seasonal allergies have DRAMATICALLY decreased! if not causation, there is definitely a correlation between the two for me.

here is some lit on the benefits of honey:

if you're in philly, the Bee Natural stand sells loads of local, seasonal and raw honey at Reading Terminal Market.

i encourage you to at least try it out. what do you have to lose?
