The Many Healing Benefits Of Raw honey
When we think of raw honey we don't usually contributed it being a very healthy food. We think that anything that has sugar in it must be bad even if it's honey produced naturally from bees. There's just so much phobia in our culture of sugar. I think this phobia is irrational and not valid. Our primary source of fuel in our body is sugar. We need to be eating adequate amounts of sugar in our diet in order to have optimal health. We have so many people promoting diet such as the low carbohydrate diet. These diets are dangerous because sugar helps regulate blood sugar. It's not just about eating protein rich foods because protein is good for you. It's about eating the right micro nutrient ratios of proteins, carbohydrates and fats with each meal. Honey unlike agave or maple syrup is not heated to high temperatures. When you heat sugar to high temperatures you make them potentially allergenic. The only sugars that I recommend people consume are from sources such as raw honey, fruits and sucrose. The best source of sugar will always be fruits. This is because fruits contain lots of important vitamins and minerals. Secondary to fruits raw honey is the next best source of sugar. You always want to have something with in it fructose with your milk. This is because fructose helps improve the benefits of milk. This would mean that you always want to have a piece of fruit or honey with your glass of milk.
I'm seeing so much fear of fructose in our culture that people are actually recommending to not eat any fruits. This is insane because fruits are so beneficial to our health. Fruits are actually much superior as a source of carbohydrate in comparison to vegetables. Vegetables contains cellulose which is quite hard to digest. Vegetables also do not contain as many minerals in their skin as fruits to. I think the main benefits of fruits is their ease of digestion and their fructose content. I think though depending on the individual they can do better with a root vegetable and some honey on it. I for example do best with a meal of beef, raw honey and some type of root vegetable. If I have a meal of beef with a fruit and a little bit of honey. I find that I do not get nearly as high body temperatures as if I were to have a root vegetable with some honey within this meal. It seems that for myself I do better with a starchy vegetable and some honey on the side along with some protein. This isn't the case for everybody and some people do better with a fruit and some do better with just honey along with some form of protein. Everybody's different. Generally speaking though you want to stay away from vegetables even root vegetables for the most part because of their cellulose content. The cellulose in vegetables causes it to breed more endotoxin in your body. Endotoxin increases lactic acid which slows down your metabolism. This leads to lots of hormonal problems in the body. You can eat root vegetables and be okay. It's just that ideally you want to be getting your sources of carbohydrates from fruits and you want to cook your root vegetables heavily.
It's nice to know that Canada has lots of different provinces that have health food stoers and local farmers that sell raw honey. I know that Ontario has one of the biggest selections of local stores and farmers that carry this amazing food. There are a lot of things you can do with honey other than put it on top of your food. You can put it in your tea or coffee. It's definitely the safest sweetener you can use for coffee. We have so many people using dangerous sweeteners such as aspartame. They would notice a huge improvement in their overall health if they switch to raw honey. Even if they switch to honey that was diluted and pasteurized they would still be much better off. I personally think that honey tastes way better than aspartame or any other artificial sweetener. It just seems that people are unaware of the dangers of these toxic sweeteners and they are also unaware of the benefits of raw honey. They think that even honey can be bad for you because everyone is saying that diabetes is caused by overconsumption of sugar. Diabetes is caused by excess consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and many other factors. Sugar is in my opinion not a reason for all this widespread diabetes were seeing. People are continually reducing the amount of sugar their consuming in their diet yet were still seeing a increase in the instance's of diabetes particularly type II. This is because the culprit of diabetes is a lot more complicated than a lot of people realize. There are so many people who have diabetes who would benefit greatly by consuming raw honey in their diet. There are many stores in Ontario and other smaller provinces that carry raw honey. There's no excuse not to consume this wonderful sugar in your diet.
The healing benefits of honey isn't so much the honey itself but the fructose in the honey. There may be many benefits to raw honey we are still not aware of. Raw honey is more nutritious than sucrose but isn't nearly as nutritious as fruits. I think that fruits probably have a much higher level of ketone's than raw honey. Raw honey may still have a decent amount of ketone's but until further testing is done we will be unaware of that amount. I think that as long as you go with something that nature produces you'll be okay. Food that you're suppose to eat is usually good for you. Raw honey comes from bees and I don't think bees would produce honey to harm themselves. They actually eat the honey themselves and I'm sure they want to produce the highest quality food possible for themselves.
There is lots of information about honey being used to treat burns another health problems. I think that the reason why it's good to treat burns is the mineral content in it and the healing properties of fructose.
When I started incorporating raw honey into my meals I noticed a huge increase in my body temperature. I went from a catabolic place of 97.4°F to an anabolic state of 98.4°F. I found that raw honey gave me a huge burst in my metabolic rate. I found that honey actually worked a lot better for me then sucrose. Honey is one them my secret weapons for dramatically improving my health. If I didn't have access to honey I would be very sad. Thankfully Ontario, as well as many other Canadian provinces have lots of local farmers and local stores that sell this delicious and very healthy food. If you are looking for raw honey ontario has lots of health food stores that carry the sweetener. The reason why I'm aware of this is because actually gone to Ontario and have seen many small health food stores selling this amazing food. I'm not sure if bigger stores like grocery store sell raw honey but probably. Ontario deftly has a bigger health following then other Canadian provinces due mostly from it's higher population density. Ontario honey is usually quite good in terms of quality. This is due to the high standards that Ontario farmers want to meet to ensure that the honey is healing and beneficial to the customers health. In conclusion, raw honey is definitely a healing food that can help you dramatically improve your health. I have seen people with terrible diseases improve their health by incorporating raw honey into their meals. It's amazing how one simple sugary food like honey can make such a difference in a person's life. The foods you eat make up who you are. It's not just about exercise when it comes to your health you need to be eatting the right types of healthy foods too.
