How much honey for allergies?

by david taylor
(louisville,ky.)

How much REAL honey(not pill, capsule or granular but liquid) would you need to take? I am just starting to use honey, as i live in the ohio valley, because my allergies seem to get worse each year. I have tried about eveything. Thanks for your help. Really nice web site. David

Hi David,
For allergies, usually one full teaspoon is sufficient. Sometimes one has to take a full tablespoon per day but that usually isn't a problem due to the wonderful taste of raw, natural honey! So start with a teaspoon and increase from there if need be.

Bee healthy,

Eating Raw Honey for allergies

by Sarah
(Grafton, WI, USA)

I have very bad spring to summer allergies, to the point where sometimes I feel like I honestly have the flu! So in order to "combat" the problem, I've been taking some of your raw honey!
Problem is, I went a little overboard, and took 12 tablespoons in the matter of a couple days
Now my throat is really itchy, as well as my eyes, and I'm worried I only made matters worse, or that my allergic reaction will get worse
Its been 3 hours since I took the last tablespoon...
Any ideas or help?
How should I take the raw honey to properly help myself for the spring-summer?

Angela's Comments:

Stop taking the honey for a few days until your allergy symptoms subside. Once they have, begin taking 1/4 teaspoon of honey per day. If you don't have any symptoms, do this for one - two weeks. You can then begin slowly increasing the amount you take up to a tablespoon per day.

Hope that helps,
Angela

How long do I take honey to see an allergy improvement?

by Jenny Santos
(Kissimmee, fl)

I have terrible allergies to pollen, dust, dustmites, certain trees such as oak, some grasses and so on. I have been taking wildflower raw honey and I want to know if it is really helping me, and if so for how long should i take it? is there a better option for me?

Hi Jenny,
Great question. The answer unfortunately is...it depends. Is the honey you are taking a locally sourced honey?

Some find that raw, local honey works quite quickly (weeks) while others find it doesn't work until the following allergy season.

Allergies are a very complex health challenge that have many, many factors that can cause or influence them. Even your diet can be a contributing factor.

I do recommend bee pollen for virtually all allergy sufferer's. Local is best but any good quality bee pollen should help you.

Allergy Treatment

by Diem Pham
(San Jose, CA)

Hello,
I've read your website and were very impressed with the knowledge you've provided. I live in San Jose, CA and I was told by friends and co-workers that by eating local honey in my area (within 30miles radius) that would help with allergy relief. I found a local person who makes honey right in his backyard. My only concern is, he told me that the heated honey (the clear brown colored honey) is heated in low heat that it would not kill the polen for the purpose of treating allergies. He also sells the raw ones and he told me that they both would do the job. I bought both kinds but really want to know if this is true. I would like to exchange my heated ones for the raw ones if what he told me isn't true. Please let me know what is best. thank you very much! My email is diemn_pham@yahoo.com

Yes, you are correct in that you should try and use raw, local, unheated honey for your allergies. The heated honey may work as well but it has been my experience that the unheated, unpasteurized works better for treating allergies.

Bee Healthy,
Angela
