Eastport, NY (PressExposure) July 14, 2009 -- Doctors all over the world are perplexed by the amazing healing ability of Manuka Honey. This medical anomaly is gaining worldwide recognition as a viable treatment alternative to antibiotics and other forms of medication. Recently, Manuka Honey has been gaining its well-deserved notoriety because of its capability of eradicating the MRSA bacterium which is responsible for causing life-threatening Staph infections that don't respond to antibiotics.
Manuka Honey is different than other types of honey due to the presence of plant-derived floral components that contain extremely powerful antibacterial properties. These medicinal compounds, in most cases, outperform many pharmaceuticals and traditional forms of medicine. With the general public becoming increasingly more interested in alternative medicine, this natural healing source could become very popular in the years to come.
Manuka Honey has many uses, both internally and topically on the skin. Since Manuka Honey is antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral, it can be used to effectively treat health conditions caused by bacteria, a fungus or a virus. Therefore, Manuka Honey can be used for stomach ulcers (H. pylori), infected wounds, ringworm, cold and flu symptoms, etc. It's also been known to act as a "last-resort" treatment when all else fails.
Other common uses include the treatment of acne, eczema, gastrointestinal disorders, acid reflux disease, sinus infections, irritable bowel syndrome, etc. Research has shown that no bacteria has been able to develop a resistance to Manuka honey. There have also been now reports of any negative side effects from its medical use.
Antibiotics are indiscriminate killers. When taken orally, antibiotics kill all bacteria, both good and bad. There are some forms of bacteria that the body needs. The elimination of this good bacteria has a tendency to through the system off balance. Antibiotics are also notorious for causing other negative side effects as well. For reasons that are currently unknown, Manuka Honey does not effect good bacteria in the body and only destroys harmful, infectious bacteria. This is something that pharmaceuticals have not been able to accomplish.
For individuals that are against using antibiotics and chemical-based medicines, Manuka Honey offers a viable treatment option that works fast and effectively. For skeptics, Manuka Honey can safely be used in conjunction with the medicine their doctor has prescribed. However, most people who use Manuka Honey for medical purposes are convinced of its effectiveness immediately.
"Manuka Honey is nature's best kept secret," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. "There are still many people who are unaware of its amazing healing capabilities. However, it is our prediction that more people will begin to recognize it in the near future." Honeymark manufactures medical, skin care and personal care products containing bioactive Manuka Honey as a natural healing agent.
