    Heating destroys the nutrients in honey. Raw unpasteurized organic cold pressed honey is the only way to go for the nutritional benefits. Commercial honey is just a sweetener and is full of antibiotics. I use Tropical Forest Zambian Honey. I do not like the taste of 'Manuka' honey and it is a con the price they charge for it.

      iv ordered some raw honey from the next county to me which is lancashire  , manuka i use sometimes but like you said it is a bit of a con 

      i am just confused about not putting raw honey   in warm liquid because it tells you to do that on a raw honey page that i looked at  to make it liquid again if it crytastlises

    I agree with Walter.  Once heated, its destroyed.  I even wonder more about the milk. It can form gas in your system when mixed with black or green tea, and then you remove the benefits of those teas.  Might want to consider stevia and NO milk.

    Eat the foods that the body requires...You use honey...Honey may not be a food your body requires...Mine for example does not require  honey...I used to energy test all my foods and then a client gave me a book Eat Right 4 Your Type...The book is easier for those who cannot energy test...You eat to your blood type...Mine is O neg and since I started this way of eating the first thing to disappear was heart burn/acid reflux in just a few days...Yes I thought first this isn't going to work, all the foods I have been eating were the wrong foods...However I like feeling the way I do to go back to eating the foods I used to, not likely...My wife had a heart back 6-7 years ago and she began eating the foods her body required, ( A pos), and today she has no more meds to take and her doctor said whatever you are doing don't stop...I myself have not been to my family doctor for almost ten years and he dropped me, greed driven pill pusher couldn't make any money off of, no prescriptions...Let's take a high performance engine and you put regular fuel into it...It will not work well...The human body is way more inticate than an engine, you put in the food the body requires and experience  the results... You are already experiencing the results of the wrong foods...

      i take on all what you say and except that we are all human but not the same . i know this from having two differant types of terrier dogs i can give tuna to one but if i give it to the other she is very sick , both dogs both terriers both with differant body needs. 

      so i see no reason why humans should not be the same .the problem is i have had so much stress and neglect in my life right from child hood when myself and my younger brother were left on our own to take care of ourselves that iv formed great attachment to comfort food such as bread and pastries not chocolate or biscuits or cakes

      .but when your 13 and hungry and all you have in the house is bread and tea and cearel you find comfort in them its rather hard to break . 

      i know from having accupunture from a chinees lady that bread and mushrooms area no no for my blood type mushrooms love them but not a problem to avoid but bread is my hardest so i thought i would start slowly by changing things a bit at a time.

      and when i start to feel better i could get more serious but when you suffer with two conditions that increase your sensistivity to pain  and cause such fatigue its hard to get started . but i will print of my blood type foods and try what you suggest .thanks for your imput .

      We are only the same as a species...There are four different blood types and each one holds positive and negative...I will be directly up front with you, this takes a commintment and rigorous discipline...Similar to one's hygene...Your chinese lady is quite correct...Get your blood type and google Eat Right 4 Your Type you must know your blood type...Good Luck and Giverrrr...You say about bread, the only store boughten bread I am allowed is Ezekiel Bread...You can do it you have the power...You have free will, your choice...

    Well I have been using Manuka honey 15+ and the only thing I can say is that I have been using it as a hot drink with cherry juice, In 3 months of doing this everyone at work had gone down with flu inclding all my family , I didnt get it and I normally do , So it cant destroy much , I am sure it will destroy some , although I dont pour boiling water on to it , I treat it like coffee , cold water first .

    Although clinical trials would have to be carried out to confirm what has been discovered so far, preliminary evidence usually suggests that the concomitant use of natural products is far more often synergistic than it is antagonistic.

    if you type PMID 22856394 in your favorite search engine, you will find one such study that suggests that the combined use of certain varieties of tea and honey potentiate their antioxydant effects.

    In my own experience in treating personal conditions with natural medicine, I have always felt that using a given substance in combination with other ones with similar claimed effects, improved the outcome; I have often experienced wonderful results! Could it be the effect of pure faith in finding relief or cures thanks to such products? Nobody knows. But I can definitely attest that I have healed when everything else failed!

      Food is not medicine. The very best reason for sweetening your tea with honey is simply because you like it. The reason that there is very little hard evidence if any on the benefits or otherwise of certain foods is that this would have to be carried out over a lifetime. What is pure faith? Is it the placebo effect?

      What??? Of course food is medicine (not always good though)! Just because it may not produce an instantaneous result similar to that of an Aspirin tablet against a headache does not mean it can't help the body cope or even get cured from various conditions with a little time. Just like man-made medicine, food contains molecules that are biologically active in the body. They produce concrete biological results; some quickly, some with a little more time. There are also fast-acting poisons, and slow acting poisons, both man-made or natural. Diseases can also progress quickly, others very slowly; so it goes for the healing process, whether the medicine used is natural (food), or man-made.

      As for the placebo effect, yes, it most likely has to do with the faith that a substance will produce an effect in your body. If you believe very strongly that chemotherapy will kill you, that belief will probably do more damage than the disease you are trying to fight - call it a reverse placebo effect if you will. If you believe very strongly that green tea associated with honey will help you heal from a cancer, that belief will probably enhance the positive effects of their molecules against cancer cells. Never underestimate the power of the spirit within the human body... It can both do marvelous or terrible things, depending on how It is directed.

      Truth is we still know very little about the actual effects (non-placebo) of all molecules, both man-made or natural. We are all continuously experimenting with them. But both the anecdotal and scientific evidence of people healing with entirely natural substances (food) is growing. Not all man-made medicines are bad, nor are all natural substances good for the human body. Only time and experience end up proving which are generally good and which aren't. There is also a question of individual choice... And choice often involves faith... And faith can be brought upon by solid evidence, supplied by people who do their best to help others, not just fill their pockets with coins.

      Of course, I don't think pure blind faith (the placebo effect) can often and entirely be behind the healing process; it would have to be extremely strong. But serious and numerous scientific research results most likely do enhance the faith for many, that it is possible to heal (or get sicker) by consuming any substance, natural ,or man-made.

    Re manuka honey When i was in Australia buying honey i was informed tht the hype about manuka is because it is the only honey that was researched in great depth that other honies will probably have the same attributes but the New Zealanders were very clever and astute in their marketing. obviously one want to buy the honey that isnt made on the huge commercial scale whereby the poor bees have only sugar to feed on because the commercial boys are harvesting too much of the honey - and the bees are frequently moved to pollinate mono culture crops. Again pehaps depleting the efficacy
