The only thing I know is that the ancient peoples used honey on their open sores and wounds. It has been shown that honey has some antibiotic properties.
A "country" friend of mine swears by honey. He uses it as Dr. Eric described above. He puts honey on a cut or wound, even on small infected wounds, and covers with a bandaid. He says it works.
Honey added to a shot of whiskey has long been used as a cough/cold remedy (or at least reliever).
Many use it in tea also.
My country friend also told me that honey, especially if you can find it locally, is a great way to build resistance to allergies. He says the bees travel from plant to plant, flower to flower, and by your ingesting the honey you build up immunity. He uses honey every day in all sorts of ways. He suggests eating at least a teaspoonful daily.
I have not yet established a honey regimen myself.
