More Evidence for the Healing Powers of Honey

Canker sores are definitely a pain. Doctors don’t know what causes these painful lesions, but new research published in the journal Quintessence International indicates that we may be able to cure them with a classic kitchen staple: honey. The journal recounts a study comparing canker sores treated topically with honey to traditional over-the-counter and prescription remedies. Within 24 hours, honey users reported that they were mostly pain-free. After four days the sores treated with honey had disappeared completely, while there was no notable change from the other treatments.

The results from this report are no surprise. Honey is a well known healing agent, its an anti-inflammatory that helps relieve swelling and pain. It is also anti-microbial and can help in new tissue generation and wound healing. So, next time you find yourself with a canker sore, head to the kitchen for fast relief. Rinse the inflamed area with clean water and dry with a bit of paper towel. Apply honey liberally with a cotton swab several times a day and hopefully you will see results by the next day.
