Honey has amazing healing powers when it comes to your health. Discover what they are and how to make them work for you.

Honey is an A-to-Z healing phenomenon. Honey can help heal everything from arthritis to weight gain, and dozens of health issues in between. Here's a list of ailments that honey can help cure, and how to use its healing qualities.

Acne
Can't beat the blemishes? Apply a paste of three tablespoons honey and 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder to the aggravated area before bed. Wash off in the morning.

Arthritis
Honey can help arthritis, a painful and often debilitating inflammation of the joints, in two ways:

  • Mix one part honey with two parts warm water to form a paste, then add a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Massage onto joints to relieve pain in minutes.
  • Every morning and night, drink a cup of hot water with two spoonfuls of honey and one spoonful of cinnamon powder. Some people swear by this as a surefire pain reliever.

Bad Breath
To keep breath fresh naturally, gargle with a homemade mouthwash of one teaspoon each of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water.

Bladder Infections
If it hurts when you urinate, your bladder may be infected. Try two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water. This will attack the germs in the bladder and help heal the infection.

Cancer
Some claim that advanced, aggressive cancer of the stomach and bones can be helped by a mixture of one tablespoon of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder taken three times a day for three months.

(High) Cholesterol
This condition is dangerous and difficult to treat, but drinking a cup of two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, three times a day, may help.

Colds
There's no cure for the common cold, but honey can help heal. To treat clogged sinuses and relieve cold symptoms, take one tablespoon lukewarm honey mixed with one-quarter teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. Steep tea with honey and breathe in the honey-infused steam. Spread honey on your chest to soothe congestion. And to cure a nagging cough, take one teaspoon of honey mixed with one teaspoon of brandy or cognac.

Hair Loss
To prevent your hair from falling out, massage your scalp and hair with a paste of warm olive oil, one tablespoon of honey, and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Leave on for 15 minutes, then shampoo lightly and rinse.

Indigestion
A common and often chronic problem, indigestion and acid buildup can be soothed by taking two tablespoons of honey sprinkled with cinnamon powder before eating.

Infertility
Some men swear that two tablespoons of honey before bed cures impotence. And women who have difficulty conceiving often rub a pinch of cinnamon powder in half a teaspoon of honey onto their gums at frequent intervals throughout the day.

Skin Issues
Equal parts of honey and cinnamon powder can help cure eczema, ringworm, and all types of skin infections. Plus, honey baths keep skin smooth and moist.

Toothache
To stop a toothache in its tracks, apply a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey three times daily to the affected tooth.

Upset Stomach, Gas, and Bloating
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and stomach ulcers, and purges excess gas from your system.

Weight Loss
To expedite your weight loss program, drink a glass of honey and cinnamon powder in hot water in the morning a half hour before eating and at night before bed. If taken regularly, this drink should help you lose weight, as it will prevent fat accumulating in the body.

According to some, honey helps heal everything that ails you from head to toe!
