A mix of honey and cinnamon is found to cure or avoid most diseases. Honey is produced in most countries of the world. Honey consumption in moderation has no side effects which is a huge plus in the current ‘drug-world’. Additionally, inspite of its ‘sweetness’, it acts as a medicine even for diabetic patients when taken in the correct dosage. Honey and cinnamon powder taken in equal parts help increase flexibility and alertness, restores vitality and well-being. Below is a list of different ways to take a combination of cinnamon and honey to combat common diseases/conditions.
Heart diseases: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder and have it on toast for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, if you have already suffered an attack, you could be kept miles away from the next one! Regular use of cinnamon and honey strengthens the heartbeat. As one ages, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get easily clogged. Honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.
Arthritis: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when doctors treated their patients with this mixture before breakfast, within a week about 35% were completely relieved of pain and within a month, almost 95% of the patients who could not even walk because of arthritis had started walking slowly without pain.
