Did you know that Honey is a natural remedy for many ailments?
Where bones are concerned it acts as an anti-inflammatory, reducing both swelling & pain and this may stop you from achieving good Bone Strength as you age.
Recent research shows that when you’re in a stressed state (Sympathetic state), it can affect bone health specifically. Let me explain how your bone health works:
- You build bone ( bone formation/osteoblastic activity)
- You break down bone (bone resorption/ osteoclastic activity)
- Your bone mass (Bone mineral density; BMD as seen on your DXA scan) can be affected as a result of the STRESS SIGNAL been switched ON.
- Many functions, such as digestion, detoxification, and your body’s immune functions are only turned on when your body is in a parasympathetic state (the opposite of stress ON).
Simply put, when stress is on, your body’s ability to heal and regenerate is compromised.
There are many ways of achieving a parasympathetic state such as:
- Good quality sleep
Sometimes the QUALITY of FOOD is dismissed or put to one side as if ‘WHAT YOU EAT IS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR HEALTH’. If you think about it:
What you eat/digest/absorb is most important.
Honey is a great immunity system builder!
It’s antioxidant and antibacterial properties can help improve the immune & digestive system, and help you stay healthy and fight disease. So the next time you are buying honey, make sure it’s: local/raw (not heated) and it will therefore contain all these properties as mentioned above. One local honey that has a harvest ready is:
