I recieved this in an email and thought it was rather interesting and thought I would pass it on...

uhhhh.... looks like I need to stock up on some Honey & Cinnamon!! :p

I distrust the drug companies of the world... they're only out to make $$!! I try to use Home remedies whenever I can! And, my DH's grandfather uses Honey & cinnamon in his tea every morning and at age 76, he still hits the weight room at our local YMCA almost everyday!!! You would never guess his age just by looking at him!

Great info! Thanks for sharing!

After reading this yesterday, a day when I had a very upset stomach almost al day, I tried making a tea with a tablespoon of wildflower honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Not only did it not taste bad at all, but my tummy was feeling good enough for soup a half hour later and great the rest of the night! So, I used honey and cinnamon on my oatmeal this morning too!

OMGoodness... Ladies, there is such a thing as "Too much of a good thing." I love honey and like cinnamon, and I know they are both really good for us, so after reading the list of good stuff I decided to make me a cup 'o H/C tea. Ladies, please measure your cinnamon!! I used a silverware tea spoon, and it was not quite fully "heaping" - OY VEY! Waaaaaay too much, almost enough to make me not want to eat cinnamon ever again But I drank it anyway, nose plugged and watered down, I didn't want to waste my precious heaping spoonful of honey!! :p I'll try again tomorrow...

Random thoughts about H & C:
** Don't microwave honey (I didn't see that in the article) - you'll kill all the good stuff. You can "uncrystalize" it by heating in warm water (my house is so cold in the winter it crytalizes all the time)

** Don't give honey to children under age 2 because the bacteria can make them really sick (probably already knew that, but it's worth repeating)

** My FIL can't eat cinnamon because it gives him gas (sometimes one has to share their TMI!!) I NEEDED to know this because I had to leave the C out of pumpkin pie (?!?!?) Thanks for letting me share one of my retina-blinding images

l love honey with apple cider vinegar...It cleanses the system as well as helping to lose weight.
1 desert spoon of set honey
1 desert spoon of apple cider vinegar
hot water to dilute
cold water so it is easy to drink
Drink as much as you want during the day....

Hi all, I finally got me some honey and cinnamon and to be honest I dislike both of them but hey if it does me any good I will try anything :-)
I am stuck though, can someone tell me the best dosage? I have used a large teaspoon of Honey and about a quater or a bit less of cinnamon in boiled water, is that right? it was like taking medicine, hold the nose and swallow...lol..would it be ok with a squeeze of lemon? may make it taste better for me.

Cinnamon does cure bladder infections. I've used it for years. I take the caps though. just because I think you need more.
