Growing Bolder: How Does Honey Benefit Your Health?

Before, I begin my post today, I just want to take a moment and say my heart goes out to the family of Robin Williams, who died at the young age of 63.  People with depression feel there is no hope and that things will never get better.  I want to say that there is always hope and that things are going to get better to any who are feeling despair, please know God cares and he is going to end all suffering soon!  Don't give up and don't loose hope!  There is always help and hope.  And, there are people who do care!
Please, read these articles on suicide prevention, click here and here .  These two articles give hope based on God's word.   Photo: If you are depressed, get help. If you know someone who is depressed, reach out.

                                                          Honey Goodness!
I've been a big fan of eating organic foods and making healthy choices for over 30 years. I stopped eating white sugar, cane sugar and corn syrup after I was diagnosed with low blood sugar at the age of 18.
 Back then there were not many choices for sugar-free other than honey and fructose. So, I started using them both in my baking and found they started to really make things taste better than they did before.
 I now have type 2 diabetes and control it by diet and exercise. My weight is below normal so no worries there, but I did need to get more exercise since I am basically a home bound person due to my  chronic Lyme disease.
 So, I walk daily for at least 15 minutes as well as do stretching exercises for about 5 minutes every day. One of the many uplifting pages I like to follow on Facebook is Dr. Anna Marie and Growing Bolder. Recently, Dr. Anna Marie had a post about honey and the benefits it offers to your health.
 Here it is, click here to watch or the video below and you'll be amazed at all the things honey is good for. Who knew?!



I have been having sleep issues since I hit menopause.  Then, our a/c went out and we had to put in window units.  These two combinations have put my sleep pattern way off balance.  My mind will not turn off because of all the noise.  I only get about 2 hours a real sleep a night and some nights I don't event know if I do sleep because I toss and turn all night!
After, watching this video I was so excited to hear that honey can help relax you so you can sleep.  Well, with my diabetes I can't take it every day but occasionally won't hurt me.  So, I took 1/8 of a teaspoon after I ate lunch and then took my nap and slept for 1 1/2 hours!  Yippie!
Give it a try and let me know if it helps you sleep or in any of the ways it mentions in the video.
This is a honey of a deal!
