Here's to your health !!
I found a great bit of information to share regarding taking medicine.
I think you'll agree that these suggestions are easy to follow and easy to swallow..
Remember the song from Mary Poppins.."A spoon full of sugar makes the
medicine go down"? Well, this is a much better and tastier way to solve some illness problems. Instead of taking some nasty tasting medicines, try the following formula's for some ill's that are listed below.
Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. What it will do is what some call 'turning
to sugar'. In reality, honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will "crystallize". When this happens loosen the lid, boil some water and sit the honey container in the hot water, but turn o ff the heat and
let it liquefy naturally. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. This will kill the enzymes in the honey.
Cinnamon and Honey
Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around.
Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:
It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures manyt dise
ases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.

local raw honey..)
Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today's science says that even though
honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and
cinnamon, as researched by western scientists:
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply it on bread instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries
and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, when they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In
America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.
Arthritis patients may take daily (morning and night) one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted
at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically
73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

Cassia contains approximately 1% coumarin, while Ceylon contains only 0.004%, or 250 times less. This is so low that it’s often undetectable (3Trusted Source, 13Trusted Source).
Exceeding the upper limit for coumarin is easily possible if you are consuming a lot of cassia cinnamon.
In many cases, just 1-2 teaspoons could bring someone over the daily limit.
Therefore, if you regularly eat a lot of cinnamon or take a supplement that contains it, then it should be Ceylon and not cassia

Medication Interactions and Side Effects
If you're already taking a medication to
help control your blood sugar levels, you shouldn't use cinnamon supplements without talking with your doctor. Combining these treatments may cause your blood sugar to drop severely, causing dizziness, blurred vision, fatigue, hunger, shaking or excessive
sweating. Your doctor may need to reduce the amount of diabetes medication you are taking to counteract the effects of cinnamon. People who are sensitive to cinnamon may develop a skin rash or breathing problems after taking cinnamon. Otherwise, cinnamon is
usually well tolerated when used appropriately.
