Orey, Cal2011
Boost your immune system with antioxidants, lower your risk for the flu, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and more—with honey—the healthy sweetener that's also the green choice for today's fast-changing world! Drawing on the latest in scientific evidence and interviews with medical doctors, beekeepers, and researchers, this enlightening book reveals how honey can help lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, reduce body fat—and increase longevity! Including information on 30 healing honey varieties with dozens of recipes, learn how to incorporate honey into Mediterranean-style, heart-healthy foods, and make more than 50 home remedies to combat everything from digestive issues to skin woes. You'll also enjoy Cleopatra's milk-and-honey beauty treatments and eco-friendly beeswax household uses—all made with the amazing honey bee's gifts! Pure, raw, unprocessed honey is a healthier sweetener than table sugar and high fructose corn syrup. It's chock-full of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins—and only has 21 calories per teaspoon. Super "bee foods" (including nutrient-rich bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly) are used and touted for their healing powers by beekeepers and medical experts in the present-day. Honey can also relieve a variety of ailments, including allergies, coughs, fatigue, pain, and stress, as well as boost libido. "A fascinating read about a natural remedy that is a rich source of antioxidants." —Ray Sahelian, M.D., author of Mind Boosters "This eye-opening book provides you with a delicious truth of the traditional Mediterranean diet: Honey is a sumptuous route to optimal health." —Dr. Will Clower, Ph.D., author of The French Don't Diet Plan
