What is Active Manuka Honey?

Active Manuka Honey
, is harvested from the flower of the wild, un-cultivated Tea Tree Bush (called leptospermum scoparium) in New Zealand. The bees are placed in the middle of wild tea tree bushes to collect this precious, medicinal honey. The honey is then very carefully extracted from the comb in a process called 'cold slung'. The honey is 'swung cold' out of the comb, after carefully scrapping off the comb capings. The comb capings keep the honey inside the comb. Active Manuka Honey has been used by New Zealand's Aboriginal people for centuries for both stomach as well as wound healing purposes. Active Manuka Honey has been researched over 20 years by Dr. Molan, Senior Lecturer, Biochemistry Department at the Waikato University in New Zealand. Dr. Molan has found that Active Manuka Honey seems to naturally destroy staph, strep as well as the h. pylori bacterium (helicobacter pylori).

Has Active Manuka Honey been Researched?

Active Manuka Honey has been researched by Dr. Peter Molan, Senior Lecturer of the Waikato University, New Zealand for over 20 years. Dr. Molan has found that Active Manuka Honey seems to naturally destroy staphaureus, streptococcus (even antibiotic resistant MRSA, Golden Staph), as well as h. pylori (helicobacter pylori), the bacteria typically associated to stomach ulcers. For more information about Dr. Molan's Reserach work, please visit the website of the Waikato University.

The non-peroxide (UMF activity) in Active Manuka Honey has been described by Molan and Russell (1998) and Allen (1991). The non-peroxide antibacterial activity in honey is important for wound care uses, since the factor is not reduced by catalyses activity in tissues or blood (Cooper 1999).

Active Manuka Honey has been shown in laboratory studies to have antibacterial activity against the 7 most common species of bacteria found in wounds. 58 strains of Staphylococcus Aureus isolated from infected wounds showed complete inhibition at concentrations of 2-3% Active Manuka Honey. The effect was caused by factors in addition to the sugar in the honey (Cooper 1999). Methicillin-Resistant Staph Auereus (MRSA) strains have also been tested against Active Manuka Honey, with complete inhibition shown at 10% honey concentration (Molan 1996).

Active Manuka Honey also inhibits the growth of Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE) at about half the concentration of clover honey with hydrogen peroxide activity (Allen 2000). Honey, including Active Manuka Honey, has shown the prevent the growth of Pseudomonas spp. found on the surface of a wound, even if the honey was diluted 10 fold by exudation from the tissue (Cooper and Molan 1996).

In addition to the antimicrobial activity present in honey, honey enhances wound healing by a variety of other means. (Molan 1998/1999, Subrahmanyam 1991). These include

a) providing a moist, but sterile environment for tissue re-growth which
    enhances tissue formation and reduces tissue deformity

b) eliminating tissue damage caused by the use of standard antibiotics

c) the osmotic effect pulling up serum from the body into the wound

d) the osmotic effect absorbing pus from the wound

e) providing glucose used by white blood cells to create the 'respiratory
    burst' needed to destroy bacteria

f) providing a natural barrier between the wound and the dressing, which
   protects new cell growth tissue from being torn away when the dressing is
   changed, providing a painless wound dressing change

g) providing acidification of the wound, which has been shown to stimulate healing,
   by creating an anti-inflammatory effect through the reduction in the number of
   inflammatory cells in wound tissue (honey has antioxidant properties) providing
   wound bacteria with nutrients instead of amino acids, thus encouraging the
   bacteria to produce lactic acid instead of ammonia (the chemical associated with
   odor in skin ulcers).

Dr. Peter Molan (1998) has carried out comprehensive review of case studies, animal studies and randomized clinical trials, where honey was used to treat wounds, burns and skin ulcers. Dunford (2000) has presented case studies describing the use of Active Manuka Honey in the treatment of wound and chronically infected lesions, including a case where massive skin lesions and necrosis resulting from meningococcal septicemia not responding to conventional treatment, healed completely within 10 weeks of the start of Active Manuka Honey treatment (Dunford 2000).

What does 'UMF' and the UMF Rating mean?

UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor. The UMF number is a standard way of describing the anti-bacterial strength of Active Manuka Honey. The honey is put in a plate with a bacterial culture, and the area is measured where the bacterial growth is stopped. This area is compared to a similar area produced by a solution of phenol and water. The UMF number refers to the percentage of phenol in the water. So Active Manuka Honey is honey that has the same anti-bacterial strength as 10% phenol. Active Manuka Honey has very powerful antibacterial activity. It can destroy staphaureus bacteria even when it is diluted to only 1.8% honey concentration in water. It has also been shown to effectively destroy Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus,  MRSA (also called the Golden Staph or "Super Bug") at 10% honey concentration).

Picture of decubitus ulcer

Many of you have felt helpless, angry and frustrated, when a family member is hospitalized or admitted to a nursing home for a longer period of time, and you had to watch, how an ulcer or bed sore, also called decubitus ulcer, pressure sore or skin ulcer, developed. Sadly, most bed sores can be prevented with proper care and prevention methods.

How to apply Active Manuka Honey to the following External Ailments:

burn (first degree burn, second degree burn, third degree burn)

For a first, second, third degree burn, or a chemical burn, take a sterile gauze and apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze. Then apply the gauze with the honey to the burn. Change honey dressing every 24 hours.

wound, mrsa infected wound
For open wounds, infectious wounds, mrsa infected wounds, wounds that just won't heal, old war wounds, amputation stump wounds, chronic wounds, post-operative wounds and scars, apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze. Then apply the gauze with the honey to the wound. Change honey dressing every 24 hours.
Ulcer, skin ulcer, decubitus ulcer
For ulcers, decubitus ulcers, skin ulcer, diabetic foot ulcer, diabetic leg ulcer, apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze. Then apply the gauze with the honey to the ulcer. Change honey dressing every 12 - 24 hours. See decubitus picture above...
sore, bed sore, pressure sore, decubitus ulcer
For sores, bed sores, leg sores, apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze. Then apply the gauze with the honey to the sore. Change honey dressing every 24 hours.

How to apply Active Manuka Honey to any type of wound?

Active Manuka Honey is applied to burns, wounds, ulcers, sores, surgical scars, decubitus sores (bed sores), diabetic leg and foot ulcers, amputation stump wounds and other MRSA and VRE staph infected wounds. Gently wash the wound with a saline solution. Apply Active Manuka Honey to a sterile gauze, similar like spreading honey onto a toast, not too much and not too little. Then apply the gauze with the honey attached to the wound. Apply 2-3 additional layers of gauze on top of the first gauze layer, in order to help soak up excess body fluid and honey. Secure gauze around the edges with skin friendly paper tape to keep the gauze in place.

Change the Active Manuka Honey Wound Dressing once every 24 hours in the evening. Again gently wash the wound with a saline solution and apply the next honey dressing, until the wound is completely healed.

If a wound has a mal odor, it is infected. Once you start applying Active Manuka Honey to a wound, you can expect the mal odor to subside within 5-10 days, depending on the size and depth of the wound, that is about how long it takes to help clear up the infection. Next you will notice that the wound will appear less and less deep. Then you should start to see healthy pink skin form around the edges of the wound and last you’ll notice the edges of the wound shrinking in size, until the wound is completely healed.

We recommend that you document the wound healing progress by taking good, sharp clear digital photos with good lighting. Take a photo about every 3-4 days or more, depending on how fast the wound is healing. When you submit the wound photos to us, and with your permission to publish the photos online at www.manuka-honey-body-products.com/CustomerTestimonies.htm, we will send you a reward including free shipping. By submitting your photo story to us, you will help other people by encouraging them to give this medicinal honey a try.

Active Manuka Honey has been researched over 25 years by Dr. Peter Molan (Waikato University, New Zealand). Dr. Molan has found that Active Manuka Honey naturally seems to destroy, staphaureus, streptococcus, h. pylori (helicobacter pylori, the stomach ulcer causing bacteria), as well as MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staph Auereus) and VRE (Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci) staph infections.

Active Manuka Honey has helped thousands of people heal wounds naturally, after antibiotic ointments, cortisone creams and silver treatments have failed...

Active Manuka Honey with a MEDIUM strength UMF Range between UMF 16-18 is also used for gastro-intestinal disorders such as acid reflux, heartburn, esophagitis, gastritis, upset stomach, stomach ulcer (h. pylori), duodenal ulcers. Active Manuka Honey UMF 16+ helps to naturally regulate bowel movements if bothered with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), massive weight loss, loss of appetite and mild forms of diverticulitis.

UMF is a registered Trademark and stands for "Unique Manuka Factor", the factor or enzyme contained in Active Manuka Honey that acts like a "natural antibiotic".

Are there any side-effects to Active Manuka Honey"

  • No known side effects (occasional burning / stinging sensation, when used for external wound care, keep reading)

  • Supported by extensive research

  • Protects and heals

  • Can be used long-term

  • Easy to use and safe

  • Anti-inflammatory effect

  • Antibacterial effect 4 times greater than standard Antiseptic (minimum 18% carbolic equivalent)

  • Naturally seem to destroy staphaureus, streptococcus and h. pylori (helicobacter pylori)

  • Fights Methicillin-Resistant Staph Auereus (MRSA)

  • Painless changing of wound dressing

  • No malodor

  • No skin grafting needed

  • Cost effective

There are no known side effects to Active Manuka Honey when used internally, unless you are allergic to honey itself. Occasionally, when Active Manuka Honey is used on an external wound, it can burn and sting for a while, because of it's high activity level. If the burning and stinging persists after 5-10 minutes, the Active Manuka Honey must be removed from the wound and can be replaced with Regular Manuka Honey. The Regular Manuka Honey should not burn and sting at all when applied to a wound and can still be quite effective in helping the wound heal all natural.

Which Manuka Honey strength should I use for internal or external applications?

Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18:

Internal uses of Active Manuka Honey include: acid reflux, esophaghitis, heartburn, gastritis, up-set stomach (after food poisoning), stomach ulcer, h. pylori (helicobacter pylori = stomach ulcer causing bacteria), duodenal ulcer, ibs (irritable bowel syndrome) and mild forms of diverticulitis and colitis, short, Active Manuka Honey is used to help sooth and heal gastro-intestinal issues naturally.

External uses of Active Manuka Honey include:
First degree burn, second degree burn, third degree burn, chemical burns (after thoroughly washing off chemicals with cool water), wounds, infectious wounds, MRSA and/or VRE staph infected wounds, wounds that just wont heal with traditional medicine such as antibiotic ointments, cortison creams etc. old war wounds, amputation stump wounds, chronic wounds, post-operative scars (after caesarean, shoulder or hip operations, cosmetic surgery, tummy tuck, face lift, any surgery that leaves a scar...) first aid wound treatment, ulcers, decubitus ulcers, skin ulcer, diabetic foot ulcers, diabetic leg ulcers, diabetic wound, sores, bed sores, leg sores, scars, insect stings, insect bites, poison oak, poison ivy, minor cuts, abrasions, scratches, itches, severe adult or teenage acne...

Active Manuka Honey with a UMF 10+

Most people use Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 for internal and external applications. However for some people this honey may be too strong and could burn and sting when applied to an external wound. If one feels a burning or stinging sensation lasting longer than 10-15 minutes after application to a wound, or it is simply too painful, one needs to wash off the honey and do one of the following things:

1. Switch to using Active Manuka Honey 10+ for external wound care, or

2. Mix Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 with equal parts, 50/50, with Regular Manuka Honey, then re-apply this mix to the wound. This way you are still using Active Manuka Honey with a lesser strength. This mix should no longer burn or sting. However, for a few people who are extremely sensitive this 50/50 mix may still be too strong. In this case you could try using just Regular Manuka Honey for wound care, as Regular Manuka Honey still has natural anti-bacterial strength, a strength that is less than UMF 10.

Regular Manuka Honey:
Regular Manuka Honey is used for medicinal purposes when experiencing a sore throat, cold, canker sore, fever blister or for manuka honey facials when suffering from acne,  pimples or other skin care issues. Spas mix Regular Manuka Honey into their secret blend of facial masks and body toners. The customer may never know, why the facial mask feels so good and cleansing, clearing the skin from impurities, thanks to the honey's natural "drawing effect". After the facial, the skin feels nice, clean, plump and nourished. You can also use 100% Regular Manuka Honey for facials you can do at home.

Instructions for Manuka Honey Facials:

Tie hair up and away from face. Wash face with Royal Jelly Soap and pat skin dry. Take 1-2 teaspoons of Regular Manuka Honey and spread all over face, the same way you apply sunscreen. Leave Manuka Honey mask on for 30-60 minutes, then wash off with warm water. For dry skin type, apply 7 Cream to face after facial. For regular skin, apply Royal Jelly Hand & Body Lotion which is also used for the face. If you have a more severe, infected adult acne type problem, you can use Active Manuka Honey for the facial.

Regular Manuka Honey is also eatable and tastes delicious in tea, on toast, mixed with butter or peanut butter and is also used as the 'secret' ingredient in cooking, baking and BBQ sauces. Manuka Honey adds a special, unique and non-descript flavor, that no one can really pin point (not even chef cooks!).

Important Note:
After listening to our customer's feedback since 1994, we know that an Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 is the most effective, beneficial and therapeutic for both internal and external applications.

This is the reason, why Manuka Honey Body Products does not promote Active Manuka Honey with a rating of 20+,25+,30+ etc. because it is way too strong! Not only will you pay a lot more money for such extremely high rated honey, but most people will experience adverse reactions. No, pain, no gain, is NOT true when it comes to healing internal and external ailments naturally with Active Manuka Honey.

When searching information online, one clearly gets the impression that "the higher the UMF rating the better". For more information about the UMF Rating and the most beneficial UMF range, click on the following link:

In Summary:
Use Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18 first, if too strong, try Active Manuka Honey 10+ or mix Active Manuka Honey with a UMF range between 16-18, equal parts 50/50 with Regular Manuka Honey.

Photos of 2nd Degree Burn Wound on Fore-Arm treated with
Active Manuka Honey, Customer from Germany:

I burned my arm on a really hot pot when cooking. At first I just cooled it with ice cubes, and when the strong pain came, I put some Active Manuka Honey and a bandage on it. The next day it turned red and the wound started to become water-filled; after the 4th day the wound opened by itself. For the next 6 days I put every night before going to sleep a fresh honey-bandage on it, changed it in the morning, but let the wound at the air for at least 3 hours a day. At first, the wound was itchy with the honey, but I was told that this is the disinfection process. After this period, the skin became a crust and I just put the honey bandage on it during the night, and a thin adhesive plaster for the day. The wound never became infected and got smaller and smaller every day. After just 15 days after the accident, the skin was completely new. Now, two month later my skin is a little bit darker, but you only notice that when you know where the wound was. Thank you Manuka Honey! G.M. Germany


Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey reduced H. Pylori Bacteria (causing Stomach Ulcers). In just two months 50% of  the h. pylori bacteria was gone, after another month or two, 98% of the bacteria was gone!

"I was diagnosed with h. pylori bacterial infection in my stomach. My doctor gave me antibiotics and other medication, which did not work at all. My doctor also heard about Active Manuka Honey and recommended that I try it out. After taking Active Manuka Honey for just two months, I felt a significant improvement. I went back to my doctor and had myself tested for h. pylori. 50% of the h. pylori was gone in only two months! About 2 months later, I was tested again, 98% of the h. pylori bacteria was gone. I feel fantastic. Active Manuka Honey works! Now I continue to take Active Manuka Honey, because I want to maintain feeling good, even though the h. pylori is gone, just for preventive measures."
S.C., Beachwood, Ohio

Customer Testimony regarding Bleeding Stomach Ulcer:

"I had a bleeding stomach ulcer for many years. Every morning when I woke up, I had blood in my mouth, it was so bad! After I searched for a natural, alternative remedy for stomach ulcers, I came across your website and learned about Active Manuka Honey. I placed my order right away. After only 1 week, the blood did not show up in my mouth in the mornings and the horrible taste that goes along with it. I kept taking the honey, until I had no more stomach pain. I still take the honey occasionally, to prevent a new ulcer. I also changed my diet to a healthier life style. Your staff was very friendly and knowledgeable too. A.R. Houston TX"

Customer Testimony" How Active Manuka Honey helped control nasty stomach bacteria after Liver Transplant"

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey helped with Ulcer and Acid Relux:

For the past 7-8 years, I’ve been suffering from an ulcer and acid reflux. I’ve been taking Nexium and Tumms. The medications kinda kept the acid ‘under control’, but just didn’t work all the way.
2 weeks ago, I stopped taking All medication and acid reducing drugs. I’m now strictly using only Active Manuka Honey. Since taking the active manuka honey 3 times a day, 20 minutes before meals on a cracker, I have no more pain, no more acid reflux, I feel pure comfort. After taking the honey - I feel terrific! I’m a devout believer.

Customer Testimony: "Doctor amazed that his patient's endoscopy proved the natural healing powers of Active Manuka Honey to help heal Stomach Ulcer and Duodenal Ulcer":

Hello
On July 22, 2005, I had an endoscopy and was told I had two ulcers, one duodenal, one stomach, and the one in the stomach was severe.  My doctor prescribed Prevacid and Carafat, and I took both faithfully for almost two months with no change in stomach pain, hot burning gas, and vomiting.  Then near the end of September, my son found your product, Active Manuka Honey, on the internet and ordered some.  I took it for 3 days, and the hot gas, vomiting and pain after eating stopped.  I continued to take it 3 times per day. On November 30, 2005, I had a second endoscopy.  My doctor came to me afterward and said my ulcers are 80% healed.  I told him about your product and he said he had heard about it, but the results haven't been 'proven.'  I told him they have been with me!  He also asked if I needed refills on my prescriptions, and I said 'No thank you.' Your product is great, and I tell everyone at work about it.  I just received my second order of 6 jars. Thank you so much! N. B. Springfield, New Jersey

Customer Testimony re: Acid Reflux and real bad Heartburn: "Doctor prescribed Prevacid, but Active Manuka Honey had a positive effect on digestive system...

My personal testimony: I was experiencing real bad heartburn and acid reflux for about 3 months and was eating a lot of Tums, taking Anti-Acids and the Doctor's medication Prevacid, which there was a lot of side effects and did not seem to help very much, it only covered the symptoms and did not go to the source of the problem. I heard about the Active Manuka Honey from New Zealand from reading the health book "Eat & Heal". I was pleased to purchase your fine product on the 1st week of October. I was very impressed with how delicious it was. It is some of the best tasting honey I ever have tried. and most of all I could tell a big difference within a few internal applications. I used one teaspoon on a small piece of bread, 20 minutes before breakfast. It has had a positive effect on my digestion, helped my acid reflux, and have not had hardly any heartburn at all since I started using it. I highly recommend it to people with Acid Reflux, Heatburn and the Bloating and cramped feeling. I do not know how it works, but it really does. The body heals itself when give the proper nutrition. It is well worth the price and should be in the medicine cabinet in every home. Thanks for making it available. A satisfied customer... D.H. Bakersville, North Carolina

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey healed Spider Bite:

My wife suffered spider bites on her lower left leg. The spider bites got out of control and caused the skin to break, which ended in 4 open sores, looking like bed sores. The sores got infected. The doctor tried to heal the sore with conventional wound healing methods, but he did not succeed. He also ordered a skin graft, which also got infected. After a 6 month ordeal, we looked for help online and found the site www.manuka-honey-body-products.com, which had Active Manuka Honey for sale. This honey is used for infectious wounds. There was nothing to loose, so we placed an order and started using Active Manuka Honey. It took only 6-8 weeks of honey treatment, now the highly infectious wound is almost healed!  Praise the Lord for his bees! Mr. and Mrs. T. Brick N.J.

Following are BEFORE and AFTER Photos, illustrating the severe spider bite infection, and the healed skin after applying Active Manuka Honey.

Customer Testimony regarding Active Manuka Honey versus Drugs:

I inadvertently found your website while looking up info on H-pylori related to my job.  After reading the testimonials, I decided to give it a try, as I have suffered with GI distress for years.  My mother died recently, which set off another round of constant abdominal pain. My doctor had placed me on a PPI, Prevacid. In addition, I have been taking multiple antacids, etc, rarely making it through a night without having to get up, sit in a chair, and take more antacids.  The day I received the Active Manuka honey, I started it, and for the first time in months, I slept through the night. In fact, I have not taken Prevacid or any other antacid, since getting the Active Manuka Honey. Thank you so much for your product. I have heard some medical reports that indicate, long-term use of proton pump inhibitors (Prevacid, Nexium, etc.), may be very deleterious to long-term health, with possible correlation to the use of PPIs and stomach cancer.
I am
extremely relieved to be off of all of these medications.

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey helped my mother with MRSA

Hello Paula,
We have been a Manuka Honey Customer since the old Oregon days, and we love all your products. But this letter is about how much your Active Manuka Honey has helped our family. First of all, my mother contracted a staff infection known as MRSA, and we tried the Active Manuka Honey with great success. The MRSA has not shown back up again. Also for me with my heartburn and throat problems, I found that the Active Manuka Honey settled all that along with settling the stomach. I would recommend all your products to the public, soap, toothpaste etc. We continue to use the honey all the time, and it has a great flavor for use on toast and in tea and cooking. Thank you for keeping these great products on the market. Thank you so much and God Bless you Paula. Sincerely P.B.W. Pompano Beach, FL

Customer Testimony" How Active Manuka Honey helped with Acid Reflux and H. Pylori

I was so surprised that the Active Manuka Honey worked for me. I thought I will try this stuff, but I really don't believe it will work for me. I used it faithfully for a week and my acid reflux and h. pylori infection was getting considerably better. Unfortunately for me, I developed an allergy to it. I have problems with allergies anyway. I had to stop taking it, but I just wanted you to know, that I am truly amazed with the honey. I really thought, it was a money thing that wouldn't work, but it certainly did. It did help me enough that I don't have the bad pressure in the top part of my stomach now and the other problems I had with the h. pylori have dissipated also. I will still try to take a little of it once in a while and hope it will keep me feeling alright without a lot of allergic problems. Thank you so much for active manuka honey. It works !!!!

Customer Testimony: "How Active Manuka Honey helped with H. Pylori & Irritable Bowel Syndrome"

Hello Elaine,
I have been going through one antibiotic treatment after the other, trying to cure my h. pylori and irritable bowel syndrome. After just another 2 week antibiotic treatment and all that crap (excuse my language), I started looking online for a "natural remedy for h. pylori" which is when I found your website about Active Manuka Honey. After taking 3x 1 teaspoon of this honey for just 1 week, I already felt a BIG DIFFERENCE! I haven't felt this good in a long time...

Customer Testimony: "How Active Manuka Honey healed wound in 7 days after skin cancer removal on lip

On the 25th of September, 2004, I went to the doctor with a problem area on my lower lip. He treated it by surgically removing it and after the biopsy found it to be squamous cell carcinoma. I was told to keep it clean using peroxide then an antibiotic ointment. I did this for almost two weeks. The wound had a very hard black scab and when I ate or talked the wound would open up and bleed. I was a mess. Then my daughter heard about Manuka Honey on the radio and its healing ability, so I went to the Internet and found your Web site, ordered the Active Manuka Honey. I received the order on a Monday, started using the honey, Tuesday a friend asked me if I had had to have additional surgery on my lip because it looked so bad, then Thursday, just three days after applying the honey to my lip the same friend could not believe the difference, the black scab was gone and my lip was healing beautifully. My doctor even told me I would probably want to have plastic surgery. Needless to say, I won't. After only a week of using the  Active Manuka Honey my lip is 90% healed and you have to look or know I had surgery to even know I had skin cancer on my lip. I am a believer, and because I am so excited about the remarkable healing power in the honey, we ordered the oil and look forward to using it. I am telling everyone I know and made copies of your flyer to give to my friends. This is one product that does what it says and I am grateful that I found out about it before I had to have plastic surgery. I regret that I did not take before and after pictures, the healing time was just incredible. Thanks so much. J.C. Oklahoma City, OK

Customer Testimony" How Active Manuka Honey helped with Stomach Ulcer + Gastritis:

"I am writing to thank your company for making an excellent product. I purchased the active manuka honey for a stomach ulcer and gastritis. I had been taking acid reducers for 3 months. I went  back to the doctor and the ulcer and gastritis had not gone away. I came across your product through a search engine on the internet. I started using the honey once in the morning and once at night. The next day I felt better. I continue to use the manuka honey 2 times a day. It is great. I will find out in 3 months if the ulcer and gastritis has healed, but the way I feel from taking the honey, I know it has healed. No more stomach pains, or burning. The honey works better than the medicine the doctors prescribe. Thanks for making a wonderful product!! Keep up the good work!" D.L. Jamaica, N.Y.

Customer Testimony" How Active Manuka Honey helped with Stomach Flu:

"I had a stomach flu and went to the doctor. The doctor did not prescribe anything to me, even though my stomach pain was severe. The doctor told me, that the stomach flu is caused by a virus, which has to run it's course. I kept vomiting, no matter what I ate. After taking a spoon full of Active Manuka Honey on toast, it helped ease my stomach pain a little and I began eating small amounts of food without throwing up. After just 2 days, I felt as good as new and the virus was gone. Active Manuka Honey really helped ease my pain and helped me recover. Thank You. B.O. Chicago, IL

Customer Testimony" How Active Manuka Honey helped with Throat Congestion:

"I have had throat congestion for years and could not find a cure. The Ear/Nose/Throat doctor said it is allergies, and the allergists said it is bacterial infection. One day, I tried Active Manuka Honey and it cleared my throat right up. Now all my relatives have at least a jar of manuka honey in their house. This honey is great for dry winter weather. I like to take a spoon full of honey with hot water, lemon and ginger slices." Y.W. Lisle, IL

Customer Testimony" Ho Manuka Honey helped with Swollen Bee Sting on Arm:

"After receiving a bee sting on my arm. My arm swelled up a very large area and itched terribly. My doctor told me to get hydrocortisone cream. That didn't help. I tried Adolph's meat tenderizer. A neighbor told me to try tooth paste. That helped a little. Suddenly I though about honey. I had some Manuka Honey. I smeared it all over my arm and covered it with gauze and left it on all night. The next morning it was almost normal. I applied it one more time and I was fine."

'Honey outperforms antibiotics' (by Alternative Medicine Digest)

Researchers attending the First World Wound Healing Congress in Melbourne,  Australia, learned that honey has outperformed conventional antibiotics in treating  burns and infected caesarean sections. Honey can eradicate Salmonella, E. Coli and Helicobacter Pylori and even kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria including the hospital superbug MRSA. Not all types of honey work though. The most effective ones are manuka honey from New Zealand and jelly bush honey from Australia. It is believed that these varieties release hydrogen peroxide, which is deadly to microbes. Dr. Peter Molan of the University of Waikato in New Zealand has found that swallowing a teaspoon of manuka honey on an empty stomach will eradicate the bacteria H. pylori, which causes most stomach ulcers.  - New Scientist

Doctor's turning sweet on healing with honey

Peter Molan, Ph.D., likes to tell the story of the 20-year-old wound. Infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, an abscess oozed in an English woman's armpit long after it had been drained. Nothing seemed to help, and the pain prevented her from working.

Then in August of 1999, she read about the remarkable wound-healing properties of honey. She convinced doctors to apply some to the dressing to her arm, and a month later the wound healed. Now she's back at work.

Honey, 'Weapon against super bugs'

Regular Manuka Honey and Active Manuka Honey, are both collected from the flower of the Manuka Bush (leptospermum scoparium) in New Zealand, and are sold in the US by Manuka Honey Body Products. Manuka Honey is less concentrated than Active Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey is used for sore throats, colds, canker sores, fever blisters, acne and pimples. Manuka Honey also tastes great in tea or on toast with peanut butter!

Dr. Molan from the Waikato University of New Zealand has been researching Manuka Honey for over 20 years and has classified various strengths of Manuka Honey.
