Honey is a remarkably viscous liquid, prepared by the bees from the nectars of various plants. It has occupied a prominent place in traditional medicines throughout world history. The ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, Chinese, Greeks and Romans employed honey for wounds and diseases of the gut.
In recent years, scientific support is beginning to emerge confirming the beneficial effects of honey on certain medical and surgical conditions. These effects may be summarized as follows:
- Antibacterial and antifungal properties
- Anti-diarrheal properties
- Wound-healing and anti-inflammatory properties
- Anti-tussive and expectorant properties
- Nutritional properties
Both the Holy Quran and Hadith refer to honey as a healer of disease.
Healing is in three things; Cupping, a gulp of Honey, and Cauterization but i forbid my followers to use cauterization.Sahi Bukhari.
And your Lord taught the honey bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men’s) habitations; Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth) and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord. There issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colors, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought.Al Quran - (Surat an-Nahl 68-69)
