For years a friend of mine was into the civil war re-enactment. He told me about the heal virtures of honey and how the civil war doctors would use it for different treatments especially as an antibotic ointment. Another interesting thing is I remember reading in the book of Proverbs where it says something to the effect: Eat thou honey comb for it is good(maybe health?) for your bones.

I have transported a lot of wound care pts (EMT). The clinics have a honey based treatment for diabetic ulcers. I learned years ago honey was antimicrobial. I think really it's a super food.

My daughter had a deep burn on her arm that was badly infected and she would not go to have it checked. I told her to put honey on a gauge pad and cover it. She thought I was nuts. In 24 hours all of the redness was gone and then it started healing real nice.
