Medicinal Uses

Medicinal Uses
Take one tablespoon of honey with dinner every night. After about a week, many fall asleep faster and sleep better. If this doesn’t produce a good sleep, or if something has given you tension late in the day, make a mixture of one tablespoon apple cider vinegar and a cup of honey. Store in a jar by the bed with a teaspoon; take two teaspoons when preparing for bed. If sleep doesn’t come within an hour, take another two teaspoons. Usually two doses will be enough, but this dosing may be repeated hourly as long as necessary.
Simple Cough Syrup:
Boil a lemon in water for ten minutes to soften the rind and produce more juice. Cut the lemon in two and squeeze the juice into a twelve-ounce glass. Add two tablespoons of glycerin and mix well. Fill the remainder of the glass with honey and mix well again. Take one teaspoon as needed for cough (stir well before use).
Muscle Cramps:
Cramps in the legs and feet have been controlled by taking two teaspoons of honey with each meal. This has shown to be helpful within a week. This remedy has also been known to control twitches of the eye and the corners of the mouth. When continued indefinitely, it may prevent their return.
Apply directly to burns to relieve pain and prevent blisters. It provides rapid healing of the burned areas.
Honeycomb Allergy Treatments:
Chewing honeycomb may desensitize a person to hay fever and wind-born allergens.  Chew a piece for fifteen minutes, three times weekly. Discard what remains. Severe cases should start taking one tablespoon of honey with meals about three months before allergy season starts. Two weeks prior to the beginning of allergy season, start taking two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in eight ounces of water at breakfast and bedtime. Continue these throughout the allergy season.
*For allergy treatments, all honey/honeycomb remedies should be made from honey produced locally to be the most effective.
Honeycomb may also relieve sinusitis. Chew a piece about the size of a piece of gum for fifteen minutes. Discard what remains. Repeat every four to six hours as needed. If honeycomb is not readily available, take two teaspoons of honey with each meal.

Ten Advantages of Honey Over Other Sugars:

Honey is believed to be the first natural sweetener used. There are records of its use by cave dwellers.  But honey is a sweetener with a difference; it is the only one that offers us life-giving qualities. Honey is a predigested sweetener so it metabolizes in the body differently than processed sweeteners and sugars. It also contains the ingredients necessary to build – or rebuild – a human body. Our bodies require vitamins and minerals for health to be maintained. Most of the foods we have become addicted to are devoid of those nutrients, but honey has many of the vitamins and minerals our bodies require and in the exact amount that our bodies need for optimum health.
Ten Advantages of Honey Over Other Sugars:
  1. Non-irritating to the lining of the digestive tract.
  2. Easily and rapidly assimilated.
  3. Quickly furnishes the demand for energy.
  4. It enables athletes and others who expend energy heavily to recuperate quickly from exhaustion.
  5. Of all sugars, it is best handled by the kidneys.
  6. It has a natural and gentle laxative effect.
  7. It has a sedative value that quiets the body.
  8. It is easily obtainable.
  9. It is inexpensive.
  10. It has medicinal values: it soothes the stomach, relieves a cough, and reduces arthritis pain.

The following are 10 simple ways to use honey in your food and on your skin:

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do
what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey..
However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I
rather call “crystallizing”.   When this happens I loosen the lid, boil
some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat
and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was.
Never boil honey or put it in a microwave.
To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.

Cinnamon and Honey
Bet the drug companies won’t like this one getting around.  Facts on Honey
and Cinnamon:  It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most
diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.
Scientists of today also accept honey as a ‘Ram Ban’ (very effective)
medicine for all kinds of diseases.  Honey can be used without any side
effects for any kind of diseases.

Today’s science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the
right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.   Weekly
World News, a magazine in Canada , in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has
given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon
as researched by western scientists:

Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly
and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in
the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have
already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles
away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of
breath and strengthens the heart beat. In  America  and Canada  , various
nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you
age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey
and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.

Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water
with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken
regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research
conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors
treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half
teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week,
out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally
relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not
walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.

Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass
of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in
16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce
the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two
hours.   As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day,
any chronic cholesterol is cured.. According to information received in the
said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon
lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This
process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach
ulcers from the root.

According to the studies done in  India  and  Japan  , it is revealed that
if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and
protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found
that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of
Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food
relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

A scientist in  Spain  has proved that honey contains a natural ‘
Ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu..

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the
ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder,
and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to
four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life
spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of
a 20-year-old.

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.
Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning
with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts
cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and
at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup
of water… If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese
person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to
accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Recent research in  Japan  and  Australia  has revealed that advanced cancer
of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering
from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with
one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful
rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens,
who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and
flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of
honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken
daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M.
when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of
the body within a week.

People of  South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one
teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath
stays fresh throughout the day.

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts
restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter
and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Liberia: Does bitter kola cure Ebola

Assistant Health Minister for Preventive Services, Tolbert Nyenswah, has disputed media reports that the nut Garcinia Kola, called bitter kola locally, is a cure for Ebola. 
He said to date no vaccine or cure has been found for Ebola. 
A local daily reported Tuesday that the nut had stopped the Ebola virus in test tubes in initial laboratory experiments, experts, including a Nigerian pharmacologist, revealed. 
Assistant Minister Nyenswah made the bitter kola-Ebola cure clarification at the regular Thursday Ministry of Information press briefing held at the Ministry in Monrovia. 
Meanwhile, Minister Nyenswah is calling on the public to report anyone or group of people administering vaccines supposedly for the prevention of Ebola or any form of drug or tablets, herbs or injection in the communities to the nearest police station. 
He said the Health Ministry is also calling on people not to listen to any information from unknown individuals or groups, except that provided by the Ministry of Health and partners. 
According to Mr. Nyensuah, anyone caught administering fake vaccine or tablets and even spreading wrong information on the Ebola disease would face prosecution. 
In a related development, the Assistant Health Minister has disclosed that 11 persons have survived the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia. 
He also announced that four additional counties have been re-categorized as response counties, bringing the total number of counties affected by the Ebola virus in Liberia to seven. 
The counties are Montserrado, Margibi, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Bong, Lofa, and Nimba. 
Assistant Minister Nyenswah said as at July 16, 179 Ebola cases have been reported with 67 confirmed, while at least 105 deaths have been recorded with 48 confirmed Ebola deaths since the second wave of the Ebola virus outbreak in Liberia from May 29 to July 16, 2014.

ACCORDING to a research, led by Professor Maurice Iwu, head, the Bioresources Development and Conservation Programme, a plant, commonly eaten in West Africa, Garcinia kola has been found to halt the deadly Ebola virus in its tracks in laboratory tests.
If repeated in humans, this would give the body a chance to fight off the virus.
They used a compound from Garcinia kola, a plant. Compounds from the plant have also proved effective against some strains of flu.
If the anti-Ebola compound proves successful in animal and human trials, it will be the first medicine to successfully treat the virus that causes Ebola haemorrhagic fever, an often-fatal condition.
The discovery was announced at the 16th International Botanical Congress in St Louis in the United States of America in 1999.
The Ebola virus was first documented in 1976 after an outbreak in Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where 88 per cent of the 318 human cases died.
More recently, a 1995 outbreak in the same country had a death rate of 81% of the 315 infected.
There are four types of the virus; they include Ebola-Zaire, Ebola-Sudan and Ebola-Ivory Coast, which affect humans and Ebola-Reston, which has so far only affected monkeys and chimpanzees.
“This is a very exciting discovery, the same forest that yields the dreaded Ebola virus could be a source of the cure.” said Professor Iwu.
The virus multiplies rapidly in the human body and quickly overwhelms it, and in advanced cases the patient develops high fever and severe bleeding.
The active compound in the Garcinia kola is what is known as a dimeric flavonoid, which is two flavonoid molecules fused together.
Flavonoids are non-toxic and can be found in orange and lemon rinds as well as the colourings of other plants.
The tests are in the early stages still, but the researchers hope that if they continue to prove successful the compound the US Food and Drug Administration will put it on a fast track, making a drug available to humans within a matter of years.
“The discovery of these important properties in a simple compound; flavonoids, was very surprising,” said Dr Iwu.
“The structure of this compound lends itself to modification, so it provides a template for future work.
“Even if this particular drug does not succeed through the whole drug approval process, we can use it to construct a new drug for this deadly disease,” he added.


Bitter Kola also known as Garcinia kola is a tropical flowering plant found in western and central Africa and it produces brown, nut-like seeds. It has been used in African culture for centuries for both traditional and medicinal purposes. It contains dimeric flavonoid, lipase inhibitor which is believed to have many healing benefits.

Cultural and Traditional Uses

Bitter Kola is a masticatory used in traditional hospitality, cultural and social Ceremonies such as naming ceremonies and weddings. 

Medicinal Significance

Garcinia kola is used in many tropical countries to fight infectious diseases such as Aids and the Ebola virus. It has shown to posses anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiviral properties.

Cold Remedy

Garcinia kola is often used to treat the symptoms of colds. It is particularly very effective for coughs, nasal congestions and help coagulate phlegm. It is also effective in alleviating sore throat.


Garcinia kola, is sometimes believed to cure impotence. It increases blood flow to the genital area in men who have hardening of the arteries.

Knee Osteoarthritis

Garcinia kola has been successfully used to treat patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis. It reduced pain and swelling and improved movement.
