Cooking Well: Honey for Health & Beauty
Synopses & Reviews
An Innovative Look into the Healing Properties of Honey
Throughout human history, the honeybee has remained one of nature’s most magnificent and hardest working creatures. The remarkable honeybee that we know today is, in fact, the product of millions of years of evolution (evidence exists of a fossilized bee over 50 million years old)—an amazing evolutionary course that has enabled the honeybee to effectively create its own dwelling place, sustain colonies of over one hundred thousand individual members, and to function as nature’s most important pollinator of flowers, trees, and other plants.
It is no wonder, then, that the fruits of this remarkable little being’s labor have since been harnessed to help us survive and thrive.
Now you can discover the many benefits of honey in one authoritative and fascinating source. The Healing Power of Honey provides a unique and in-depth look at honey as a safe, natural, and effective therapeutic tool. Citing everything from clinical studies to homeopathic experts, author Nathaniel Altman brings the discoveries behind honey to life.
Inside, you’ll learn about several medicinal uses of honey, including:
* Treatment of wounds and burns
* Treating internal diseases
* Improving oral and ophthalmological health
* Prolonging life
With easy-to-follow information, The Healing Power of Honey will open your mind to the holistic benefits of honey—and a newfound respect for the honeybee!
