Powers of honey and cinnamon

People of South America, first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

There’s more to cinnamon and honey that one might think.

We highlighted some of those benefits last week, and continue with some more tips this week.

Colds

Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days.

This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

Upset stomach

Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.

Gas

According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

Immune system

Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.

Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts.

Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.

Influenza

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ‘ingredient’ which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Longevity

Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age.

Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder and three cups of water and boil to make like tea.

Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day.

It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.

Life spans also increases and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

Pimples

Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.

Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water.

If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.

Skin infections

Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.

Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person.

Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

Cancer

Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully.

Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three time s a day.

Fatigue

Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body.

Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible.

Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3 p.m. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Hearing loss

Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restore hearing.

Remember when we were kids?

We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it.
