Sugar Pie Honey Bunch

No, I’m not referring to the 1965 Motown hit by the Four Tops.  I am talking about the health benefits of local honey.  For the last two days, I have been fighting this allergy/upper respiratory infection.  I hate taking cold meds because all they do is make me drowsy. The non drowsy versions make me hyper. 

A friend of mine and regular reader (waves) told me about this natural honey remedy.   It is believed that honey acts as a vaccination by introducing the body to small amounts pollen.  At the point of wanting to try anything natural to stay on point for MCM training, I went out my way to pick up a bottle to add in my daily green tea.  Normally I just add lemon, lime or even an orange slice so two teaspoons of honey is a treat.

The sales clerk told me it takes about two weeks to notice an improvement.   I will keep you honey bunches posted!  ♥♡♥♡

Meanwhile, I kept calm and ran 8 miles after work. Hardest run of marathon training yet with the stuffy head, but relieved I can sleep in tomorrow.

  1. Yikes!! I hope you feel better. When I had bronchitis during the Rodes 10K, I was making a mixture of 1 tbsp honey with 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. The mixture helped clear the sinuses and strengthen the immune system. Running when congested is NOT easy. I know…I’ve done it.
