How to take active manuka honey for a stomach ulcer / peptic ulcer

Take 3x 1 teaspoon of active manuka honey on a one-bite size piece of bread, or toast, or bagel or a slice of fruit. Take the honey attached to the bread, 20 minutes before meals (before breakfast, lunch and dinner) to help coat out the stomach. Do not drink any liquids during those 20 minutes, in order for the honey to remain as concentrated as possible for best results. You can take a 4th teaspoon of active manuka honey on a one-bite size piece of bread before retiring for the day and brush your teeth after that, to have a coating in your stomach while sleeping
H. Pylori Bacterium (helicobacter pylori)

The h. pylori bacteria is a spiral shaped, gram negative bacterium with 4-6 flagella attached (thread-like appendages). With it’s flagella, the bacterium drills into the mucus layer of the stomach. The bacterium excretes the enzyme urease, which converts urea into ammonia and bicarbonate. The release of ammonia lets the bacteria ‘neutralize’ the acidic environment in the stomach, which explains
the difficulty in destroying the h. pylori bacterium. Normally the stomach’s acidity destroys bacteria all natural – but not the h. pylori bacterium! Ammonia is toxic to the epithelial cells and causes those cells to get damaged, hence the beginning of a stomach ulcer takes it’s course.

What is the definition of a stomach ulcer?

A stomach ulcer is caused either by the h. pylori bacteria, by gastric acid or as a result of medication side effects, and appears in the upper gastrointestinal tract. When the mucosa lining of the gastrointestinal tract breaks and forms little cracks, acid can enter and cause an ulcer to form. Ulcers can form in the esophagus, stomach, duodenum and can affect the entire gastro intestinal tract. Over 500'000 new stomach ulcer disease cases are reported in the U.S. alone.

Cause and sign of stomach ulcer?

The h. pylori bacteria is the most common cause of stomach ulcer and also seems to be responsible for other ulcers, such as esophagus ulcer, peptic ulcer, duodenal ulcer. The h. pylori bacteria (helicobacter pylori) is a spiral shaped bacterium with tentacles. The h. pylori bacterium can survive in an acid environment, which is why it is so difficult to treat. Ulcers can also be caused or 'encouraged' to grow due to medication side affects of aspirin and other Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID's).

A stomach ulcer is either a chronic or acute inflammation of the mucous membrane of the gastro intestinal lining. A stomach ulcer is caused by various actions, conditions, illnesses or trauma

  • drinking to much alcohol
     
  • prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's) such as aspirin, ibuprofen
     
  • Certain diseases can also trigger a peptic ulcer such as autoimmune disorders, chronic bile reflux
  • A stomach ulcer is aggravated by hot, spicy and greasy foods!
     
  • h pylori infection (infection caused by the helicobacter pylori bacterium)
     
  • after major surgery
     
  • traumatic injury
     
  • severe infections

What is a typical stomach ulcer symptom?

Following is a brief list of symptoms of having a stomach ulcer:

  • mild to severe abdominal upset, pain and burning sensation
     
  • bloating
     
  • vomiting
     
  • nausea
  • blood in stool or vomit may indicate bleeding anywhere in the gastro-intestinal tract, which requires immediate medical attention
     
  • feeling of burning in the upper abdomen
     
  • bleeding peptic ulcer
     
  • a perforated ulcer can lead to life-threatening conditions where emergency surgery may be required

How can a stomach ulcer be diagnosed? Test for stomach ulcer?

Most stomach ulcers are caused by the h. pylori (helicobacter pylori) bacterium and can be tested as follows by a:

  • blood test

  • urea breath testing

  • stool test

  • gastrointestinal endoscopy / biopsy

Blood Test:
Your doctor can order a blood test which will determine whether the h. pylori bacteria was or is present, due to the existence of antibodies found in the blood test.

Urea Breath Test:
The urea breath test can determine if you are suffering from the h. pylori bacterium. The h. pylori bacteria has the ability to break down urea, a chemical made of nitrogen and carbon. These chemicals are normally produced by the body and excreted in the urine.

Stool Test:
The stool antigen test is another approach to look for evidence of the h. pylori bacterium in a stool sample.

Gastrointestinal endoscopy / biopsy:
The most invasive test is done by extracting a tissue sample of the stomach and examining it under the microscope for the h. pylori bacterium. The sample is collected by conducting an exam with an endoscope.

How can I prevent getting a stomach ulcer / peptic ulcer ?

Stomach acids irritate the gastro-intestinal lining causing cracks and inflammation. Avoid eating hot, spicy, irritating foods, certain medications, excessive use of alcohol and cigarettes. Smokers are twice as likely to develop a stomach ulcer  and stomach ulcer symptoms than non-smokers, by providing a more favorable environment for the h. pylori bacterium to flourish. Stress and ongoing stressful situations also seem to aggravate an ulcer anywhere in the gastro-intestinal lining. Stress seems to increase acid production. Stress can also increase blood pressure and anxiety, therefore causing favorable conditions for the ulcer to grow and further irritate the stomach lining. Other factors that tend to cause ulcers and irritate the gastro-intestinal lining, is pepsin. Pepsin is released by the mucosa to help break down protein and hydrochloric acid, an acid released by the digestive system. A history of peptic ulcer disease in the family can also be a reason for a greater likelihood of getting a peptic ulcer, due to hereditary tendencies. Also certain drug side effects can cause the mucosa to break, thus causing the beginning of ulcer in the GI tract.

Stomach ulcer diet?

We recommend, that you set up an appointment with your local nutrition / dietitionist to ask what foods you should eat and which ones to avoid. Following is a brief list of foods to avoid and lifestyle changes to consider:

Food to avoid with stomach ulcer:

  • hot & spicy foods
  • certain herbs and spices
  • red meats
  • daily products
  • citrus fruits
  • tomato and tomato products
  • chocolate
  • fatty foods
  • beans, broccoli
  • alcohol
  • tobacco
  • coffee
  • tea
  • cola drinks
  • sedentary lifestyle

Following is a list of foods to enjoy - provided you are not allergic to these foods:

  • drink plenty of water daily
  • hot, cooked oats for breakfast
  • add more fiber to your diet (an apple a day...
  • wholegrain breads
  • fruits, salads, vegetables
  • yoghurt
  • eat 3 small meals a day and small snack in between
  • don't overeat or starve
  • include protein in every meal/snack
  • eat slowly and check foods well
  • do not eat 3 hours before bedtime

When you start applying the above basic suggestions regarding a healthy diet for treating stomach ulcer, you have just taken the first steps towards feeling better and help prevent over-production of acids causing ulcers.

How to treat stomach ulcer naturally with Active Manuka Honey?

Active Manuka Honey is collected from the wild, un-cultivated tea tree bush (leptospermum scoparium) in New Zealand. Once the honey is collected, it is gently extracted from the comb (cold slung) without any heat. Active Manuka Honey is a naturally organic, pure, raw, medicinal honey researched for over 20 years by Dr. Molan, Waikato University, New Zealand. Dr. Molan found that active manuka honey seems to naturally destroy staphaureus, streptococcus and the helicobacter pylori bacterium, associated to gastro-intestinal ulcers.

If you are suffering from a stomach ulcer / peptic ulcer, duodenal ulcer or an ulcer anywhere in the gastro-intestinal lining caused either by the h. pylori bacterium or as a side effect from medication including stomach ulcer medicine, you will need to take active manuka honey for 4-6 months, depending on the size and depth of the ulcer. Active manuka honey is considered to be a natural cure for stomach ulcer.

For a natural stomach ulcer cure, take 3 x 1 teaspoon of Active Manuka Honey on a one-bite size piece of bread or toast, or bagel slice or on a piece of fruit, 20 min. before meals. Do not drink any liquids during those 20 min. in order to keep the honey as concentrated as possible for best results. You can take a 4th teaspoon of active manuka honey before retiring for the day and brush your teeth after that, to have a coating in your stomach over night - this is especially advisable, if you tend to wake up with acid reflux in the mornings. Active Manuka Honey coats out the mucous lining of the gastro-intestinal tract and is very soothing to help start heal and repair the mucous lining, and if present help destroy the h. pylori bacterium. There are no known side effects to manuka honey (unless your are allergic to honey itself), therefore active manuka honey can be taken together with doctor prescribed stomach ulcer medication.

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).

Advantages of treating a stomach ulcer with Active Manuka Honey?

  • no known side effects (unless allergic to honey itself)

  • naturally organic honey for healing a stomach ulcer

  • Supported by extensive research

  • Protects and heals GI tract

  • 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)

  • active manuka honey is considered a natural stomach ulcer remedy and seems to be effective for stomach ulcer in child as long the child is older than 18 months

  • active manuka honey can also be used to help treat a stomach ulcer in dog and stomach ulcers in other pets

  • 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.

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 has taken away Stomach Problems

I would like you to publish my testimony for the sake of those people out there who are looking for a natural relief for any problems they are suffering from, just like my husband. Active Manuka Honey is really helping us a lot, especially my husband, who has stomach problems. It's really a good thing that we don't have to rely on prescription drugs all the time. My husband just relies on a spoon full of the Active Manuka Honey. It just amazes me, that he does not have to suffer from his stomach pain all the time. Thank you  very much! R.M.

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey helped dog recover from loss of appetite back to normal eating patterns. The honey also helped it's owner with respiratory infection, up-set stomach and wound healing.

I am a long time breeder of Great Danes.  My Dane, Sky, has had no appetite for almost a year.  I had resorted to force feeding him twice a day in order to keep him in show condition.  Although he didn't act or appear ill, he did burp a lot during the day and had excessive salivation.  There had been several trips to the vet, with some very complete blood work done.  Everything came back normal.

I was in New Zealand in 2003 and had supplied myself with bread, peanut butter and honey.  (I wasn't nuts about the food!)  At the suggestion of my friend with whom I was staying, I purchased manuka honey at the grocery store.  I practically lived on PBH sandwiches. Right after we had arrived in NZ, the 3 of us came down with an upper respiratory infection.  Mine was very mild and over in 3 days.  My other friends continued to feel bad for another 3 weeks and were much more severely affected.  I didn't think about the honey being responsible until recently.  My friends weren't eating it like I was!

So getting back to the dog.  After a week of giving him 1 tsp of honey approximately 20 minutes prior to eating AM & PM and sometimes at noon if I'm here, he's EATING!  It began gradually, with him accepting food from my hand that he'd refused before.  Then he began eating more and more.  As of today, 1 week from the time I quit force feeding him, he's eating normally.  The burping has stopped and so has the frequent drooling. (Drooling is often an indication of nausea).  I even cancelled an appointment I had for him with a veterinary internist. I'm also using the honey on myself for stomach upset and wound dressing. J. S. Jucaipa, CA

  • Stomach Ulcer / Peptic Ulcer

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!

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. H.T. Newberg, Oregon

  • H. Pylori

Customer Testimony: How Active Manuka Honey eliminated 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 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 1 or two 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

How Active Manuka Honey led to a Negative H. Pylori Result...

I felt like I had to yawn all the time, so I went to my doctor for the regular check-up. I told my doctor about the frequent yawning. My doctor had me tested for h. pylori, which tested positive. This was in December, 2 years ago. My doctor prescribed me a very strong antibiotic for about 2 weeks, but it made me quite sick because it was so strong. After 6 months I was re-tested for h. pylori. The h. pylori count did come down some, but it still tested positive.
My husband received a laptop for Christmas. I asked him to research h. pylori. He found the website of Manuka Honey Body Products. I ordered the Active Manuka Honey and took 4 teaspoons a day. I was also taking Aciphex at the time, and found that it was too much together with the manuka honey, so I reduced the amount of Active Manuka Honey to 2 teaspoons a day and still found it effective. I had myself retested after 9 months and the h.pylori result came back NEGATIVE.

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 and Breathing Problems

I was diagnosed with h. pylori after having severe stomach pain and swelling. My stomach was swollen, hard and very painful. I also experienced stomach cramps. The swollen stomach caused a condition which made it hard for me to breath. This made my asthma and breathing problems worse. I was taking breathing treatments several times a day and could barely catch a breath. I spent most of the day in bed. My wife purchased Active Manuka Honey for me. After only two months, my condition significantly improved to the extent that I no longer have to use the breathing machine. I found relief for my stomach with Active Manuka Honey, now I can breath. You have made a believer out of me! Thank you. Sincerely J.T. Poplar Bluff MO

  • Stomach Flu

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.
