A Cure For Every Type of Bacteria And It’s Raw, Natural and Never Spoils

Many state it’s not what honey is good for, but what isn’t it good for. Honey has been used medically for hundreds of years, but for no reasons other than profit, mainstream medicine has sought to develop man-made antibiotics which have only led to antibiotic resistance and other diseases. New research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.

Some bacteria have become resistant to every commonly prescribed antibacterial drug. But scientists found that raw Manuka honey, as it is known in New Zealand, or jelly bush honey, as it is known in Australia, killed every bacteria or pathogen it was tested on.

It is applied externally and acts on skin infections, bites and cuts.

The honey is distinctive in that it comes only from bees feeding off tea trees native to Australia and New Zealand, said Dee Carter, from the University of Sydney’s School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences.

Professor Rose Cooper from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff has looked at how manuka honey interacts with three types of bacteria that commonly infest wounds: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Group A Streptococci and Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Her group has found that honey can interfere with the growth of these bacteria in a variety of ways and suggests that honey is an attractive option for the treatment of drug-resistant wound infections.

Honey has long been acknowledged for its antimicrobial properties. Traditional remedies containing honey were used in the topical treatment of wounds by diverse ancient civilisations. Manuka honey is derived from nectar collected by honey bees foraging on the manuka tree in New Zealand and is included in modern licensed wound-care products around the world. However, the antimicrobial properties of honey have not been fully exploited by modern medicine mostly because it’s not patentable.

Studies on the Manuka Honey benefits have shown that Manuka Honey, has powerful antibacterial, anti microbial, antiviral, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and anti fungal properties.

Current findings on Manuka Honey are likely to have a major impact on modern medicine and could lead to a range of honey-based products to replace antibiotic and antiseptic creams.

“Most bacteria that cause infections in hospitals are resistant to at least one antibiotic, and there is an urgent need for new ways to treat and control surface infections,” Professor Carter said.

“New antibiotics tend to have short shelf lives, as the bacteria they attack quickly become resistant. Many large pharmaceutical companies have abandoned antibiotic production because of the difficulty of recovering costs. Developing effective alternatives could therefore save many lives.”

None of the bacteria researchers have used to test the honey, including superbugs such as flesh-eating bacteria, built up any immunity.

She said a compound in the honey called methylglyoxal — toxic on its own — combined in unknown ways with other unidentified compounds in the honey to cause “multi-system failure” in the bacteria.

The results of the research project are published in this month’s European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases.

This research may increase the clinical use of manuka honey as doctors are faced with the threat of diminishingly effective antimicrobial options.

Innovative and effective ways of controlling wound infections that are unlikely to contribute to increased antimicrobial resistance are needed. It has already been demonstrated that manuka honey is not likely to select for honey-resistant bacteria, so the potential is enormous.

At present, most antimicrobial interventions for patients are with systemic antibiotics. “The use of a topical agent to eradicate bacteria from wounds is potentially cheaper and may well improve antibiotic therapy in the future. This will help reduce the transmission of antibiotic-resistant bacteria from colonised wounds to susceptible patients.”

  1. The Professor says:

    well this really does explain the bee die off issues we are now facing. big Drugs cant make bucks on it get rid of it to hell with the fact that we need them for food production. As Albert Einstein said if the bees go we have 4 years left. he hasnt been wrong yet

  2. sweet news.

    would that someone could apply RAW honey to the TV

  3. Roger says:

    There is one thing about this story about Manuka Honey and many other Honey’s for that matter, that is overlooked negating the benefits of the Honey.

    Some years ago I contacted the main Manuka dealer from New Zealand about this. He said send me the proof and scientific evidence, I did, and I have never heard from him since despite many efforts.Manuka for one is still processed and sold in plastic.

    This Honey is poured firstly into plastic vats, and then chemical type blue vats with black lids which are roughly made with plastic bits, like skin tags on the inside, you will have seen them. Then they are poured for commercial sale into guess what plastic (BPA) jars!

    Now I’m sure some are aware of the dangers of ingesting plastic and (BPA) the gender bender! Honey has as one of its great constituents “hydrogen peroxide” as a natural protective disinfectant.

    This leaches into the plastic making the plastic leech into the honey even more so, and when you eat it, you can guess what happens to your body.

    No food no matter how good in its raw form, is only as good as the way its collected stored and processed before getting to you.

    So be aware and never buy eat or cook anything that is a liquid in plastic. Besides the dangerous health effects men will become women, and women, men!
