|OK, call me skeptical, but I am not likely to believe a report such as this which does not properly give its references. (Granted a bit of honey and cinnamon will not harm anyone (unless they are alergic to either item), and as such fall in the "it won't hurt to try" category, but I would keep my expectations rather in check, if I were seeking a cure.)|

|um dawn, there's truth throughout this - and i think you can tell by some particular wording that there's also some slight exaggeration, but nothing harmful (as in "arrests" the ravages of old age.)|
but (as you know, eh, dawn?) i have to leave right now for my lab....
so i'll only say this for now, maybe come back later for some more specifics:
cinnamon has some mild antibiotic properties. a reason it can be used long-term, as compared to goldenseal which is WAY WAY more effective, but not to messed with long-term, because it will kill those bacteria you shouldn't be killing, as well as those you want to die. (likewise, echinacea acts fairly mildly, but is not for long-term use.)
as for its use for arthritis as a topical, or in water for say, a cold with phlegm, capsicum (red pepper) is, again WAY more effective, but less tolerated over any length of time.
we've talked about honey processing in the body before, too. it's the best sweetener for both low and high blood sugar - slooooowwwwww.
yep, cinnamon has properties which have been shown to do a lot of things, including lowering (or adjusting, i should say, in proportion good to bad) cholesterol. think about why it might be that cinnamon is the MOST UBIQUITOUS spice found in food "products". the habit and taste for it was long ago established, and it's not just cost, though some manufacturers may think so. there's a reason, if you go back far enough, why foods are combined in the ways they are, why ingredients are found in same use throughout the world. and most of it goes back to the some of the earliest scientists, the women who foraged, harvested, and cooked meals, and by their own scientific observations learned as a community of humans how to care for their families and apply their observations to the development of culturally translatable practices which came later to be known as the practice of "medicine".
honey, cinnamon, vinegar, ginger, and salt are what i would consider basics for most human maintenance.
(a lot of "healing' is pH correction. i've mentioned this before here - who knows where though. maybe one of my 'overzealous' early posts.....)
(who wishes her cat ophelia would be just a tiny bit less carnivore long enough to eat honey so maybe she'd get better, but she won't....:()

|I guess I should have taken a little more time with my previous post. In it I was reacting to the exaggerations, and the ones about curing cancer or restoring hearing loss, seem to me to be a bit more than just slight exaggerations. As with any claims in medicine, I like to see the references. (I actually do occasionally even look them up. :o) And this article didn't list them. See, in my optimistic view of the world, if it could be shown that honey and cinnamon together cured even just 20% of the cases of bone or stomach cancer, I can't see how doctors (and patients) would ignore this obvious and cheap method of healing. Yes, I know the big pharmaceuticals put great pressure on physicians to use their products, but that the whole profession would ignore such a solution if it indeed would work, to me seems not credible. And since I can find no evidence of such a cure being in widespread use, I must assume that it is not. So, either the cure is a gross exaggeration, or the medical profession is purposefully cheating and/or lying or both. And, since the former seems more likely than the latter, especially as no references are given to support the claim, I conclude that the article is probably grossly exaggerating, at least when it comes to the cancer claim. The same could be said for the hearing loss. Hearing loss can happen as a result of so many different causes, that to blanketly claim that "honey and cinammon" is a cure for it, seems to me to be a huge stretch, unless the combo can do everything from grow new hair cells on the cochlea to heal damaged nerve cells on the retrocochlear pathway (connects the inner ear to the brain) to repair brain cells. (Any of these could be damaged from disease or injury, and thus result in hearing loss.) |
So, when I see such counterintuitive generalizations without appropriate support, little flags pop up and I become suspicious. Those large exaggerations make me wary of taking anything else in the article at face value -- hence my "take it with a grain of salt" attitude. I don't have a doubt that honey and cinnamon either alone or together can heal any number of maladies. But if an author wants me to believe specifics, especially when it comes to the more serious of the health situations that humankind faces, then better documentation is going to have to be provided.
Whew, hope that's clearer.

|so you mean when honey is mixed with cinnamon or separtely each do the same work?|
its nice and cool to know that, subhan-allah!
any ways the prophet [saw] said that honey is medicine. i wanted to know if 100% pure syrup the same as honey? and the prophet [saw] also said that the black seed is a cure for EVERYTHING. but except for as-sam, and aisha asked him what is as-sam, he said "Death"
subhan-allah!! subhan-allah!! subhan-allah!!

The Miracle of Honey
"Such as remember Allah, standing, sitting, and reclining, and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth, (and say): Our Lord! Thou createst not this in vain. Glory be to Thee! Preserve us from the doom of Fire."
(Al Qur'an: Al-Imran,191)
"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 colours, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought." (An-Nahl 69)
Honey is composed of sugars like glucose, fructose and minerals like magnesium, calcium, sodium, chlorine, sulfur, iron and phosphate. In addition to these, honey includes B1, B2, C, B6,B5 and B3 vitamins in it and the concentration of these differ according to the pollen and nectar sources. Besides; copper, iodine, iron and zinc exists in small quantities Also, several kinds of hormones were also detected in its content. "During the World Apiculture Conference held in 20-26 September 1993 in China, treatments with honey derivatives were discussed. Especially the American scientists expressed that honey, royal jelly, pollen and "propolis" (bee resin) had the capability of curing many illnesses. One Romanian doctor stated that he used honey for treatment of patients with cataract, and 2002 of his 2094 patients recovered completely. Polish doctors also informed about bee resin's curing abilities for diseases like hemorrhoid, skin problems, woman illnessesand many others. Nowadays, apiculture and bee products a re a source for research in developed countries." (Hurriyet Newspaper, 19 Oct.1993)
Scientists agree upon the fact that even a spoonful of honey is absolutely beneficial to the body. Because the sugar molecules in the honey can turn into other types of sugar (fructose to glucose), despite of its high acid concentration it is easily digested by the most sensitive stomachs. It also helps kidneys work better. Another interesting aspect of the honey is that,when it is mixed with the same amount of sugar it gives 40% less calories to the body. This quality of the honey, helps keeping away from gaining weight.
Rapidly dissolves in the blood: Honey gets into the circulatory system in 7 minutes when taken with mild water and in 20 minutes with cold water. The free sugar molecules in it make it easier for the brain to function…
Supports production of blood: Honey functions as the energy store for new blood formation and helps anemic people by speeding up the process. It helps purification of blood.
Blood circulation is regulated and nourished with it. Also, it has positive effects on capillary problems.
Friend of stomach: Honey does not result in acidose or alcoholic fermentation because of its fast digestion. The free radicals within it makes it easier for the fats to be digested. It covers up the absence of iron in the milk of mothers and cows. While increasing intestinal actions and resulting incomfort, it also increases appetite.
Royal jelly: Royal jelly is the white fluid produced by worker beesinside the beehive. Inside this nutritious substance, there is sugar, protein, fat and many vitamins. It is utilized in problems which occur as a result of tissue deficiency or when body is weak.
Bacteria killing property: This bacteria killing of the honey is named as "inhibition effect". The experiments made with honey showed that itsbacteria killing effect increased twice when diluted with water.
Note: Infants and children under the age of 18 should not be given honey. The spores of one bacterium may be found in honey and sprout in the infanmt's digestive tract, which is not mature enough to combat the bacterias.
Treatment of Burns and Skin Ulcers
A study in 1991 by Dr Subrahmanyam compared the results of topical application of honey to burns with conventional Burn treatment, (silver sulfadiazine). The following results were noted and reproduced by Julie McCarthy, a post graduate student at the University of Guelph. "Burn patients of a variety of ages were divided into two treatment groups. The burns of patients in group I were cleaned with a saline solution and pure, undiluted, unprocessed honey was applied daily. Burns of group 2 were cleaned and covered with gauze that was soaked in 5% silver sulfadiazine which was changed daily. Results showed that within 7 days 91 % of the infected wounds treated with honey were free from infection, compared to less than 7% of the silver sulfadiazine treated burns. Within 15 days, 87% of honey treated wounds were healed compared to less than 10% of wounds in group 2. " Furthermore, Efem (1988) showed that the various types of wounds and skin ulcers which did not respond to conventional methods of treatment such as antibiotics and medicated dressings, responded to treatment with honey. These included:
Fournier's Gangrene Burn wounds Tropical ulcers Bed sores Diabetic ulcers The anti-bacterial activity of honey is based partly on its osmotic effects in that the bacteria that cause infection are unable to survive in honey because they become dehydrated. In addition, it was noted that the presence of hydrogen peroxide generated by the enzymatic activity of glucose oxidase in dilute honey contributes to the anti-bacterial activity. As hydrogen peroxide decomposes, it generates highly reactive free radicals that react and kill bacteria.
The Treatment of Gastroenteritis and Stomach Ulcers using Honey
Research by Haffejee and Moose (1985) found that honey treatment shortened the duration of diarrhoea in patients with bacterial gastroenteritis, in that patients treated with honey had a mean recovery of 58 hours compared with 93 hours for control patients. In addition, research conducted here in New Zealand by Somal et al (1994) at Waikato has shown that Manuka Honey successfully inhibits Helicobacter pylori the organism responsible for upper gastro-intestinal dyspepsia of stomach ulcers. However, it should be noted that research is ongoing in this field, and although the initial results are promising, full clinical trials are yet to be completed. As well as its other therapeutic properties, the presence of potassium, sodium calcium and magnesium means that honey is capable of neutralising acid in the body and thus maintaining the acid-alkaline balance.
