Sidr (Manuka) Honey: The Natural MedicineOne of the best natural healers today is honey. What many are unaware of, however, is that all forms of honey are not created equal. The way honey is processed has a lot to do with the effectiveness of their healing properties. One of the best natural healers is Yemeni Sidr honey.

Sidr honey comes from the nectar of the Yemeni Sidr trees. Being that every part of the tree has medicinal properties, this honey is an expensive natural remedy in Middle Eastern culture. Sidr honey’s high demand due to its medicinal properties can sell for up to $1,000 for a single kilo. Used as an antibiotic, aphrodisiac, and even a skincare ingredient, this honey has become a very common natural alternative to modern medicine.

Immune Booster

The best healthcare is preventative. The human body’s ability to fight harmful toxins and bacteria depends on a healthy immune system. The high antioxidant content in Sidr honey helps strengthen the white blood cells, which fight illnesses including influenza. Aside from fighting disease, honey has great antiaging properties. Elderly people suffering with mobility issues are highly recommended to add this honey to their diet.

Sinus Infection Remedy

Instead of taking prescription medications for Staphylococcus aureus, the respiratory bacteria responsible for sinus infections, Sidr honey is a healthy alternative. This sweet substance has the ability to kill internal and external staph infections, allowing better air flow and easier breathing. Sidr honey can be diluted and added to nasal saline solutions or can also be added to the diet for a boost in nutrition, especially since the overuse of prescription medications have led to certain bacteria building immunity. MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, patients are typically mandated to get surgery and antibiotics to cure this condition. This type of honey however, is a natural and painless way to kill MRSA bacteria. Simply apply the honey topically to the affected area.

Skin Health

Being that skin is the largest organ, it gets difficult to maintain its health, especially being an external organ. Sidr honey is antibacterial and is great for healing cuts as well as bacterial and fungal infections including ringworm and bacterial acne. When applied as an overnight mask, this honey and cinnamon clears various forms of acne like blackheads, cystic acne, and even boils.

Fights Cancer and Sexual Dysfunction

With miraculous cases of patients beating cancer after using Sidr tree medicine, even doctors are beginning to speculate that the antioxidants in Sidr honey fight free-radicals known to cause cell damage.

Sexual health transcends pleasure. In fact, the inability to get an erection and need the assistance of medications can actually cause health problems.

Instead, use Sidr honey and mix with cumin or carrot seeds to naturally solve erectile dysfunction.
