Healing Fibro: Manuka Raw Honey

Purchased at my local whole foods store


I am always looking and researching was to heal Fibro. I have been dealing with a lot if issues since my recent surgery. 
New pains as well as infection in my colon due to the fact that it was injured during my procedure. 
I have been on numerous rounds of antibodic medication to help aid me in healing. 

I was recently informed that the Manuka Raw Honey had great benefits. I did my own research and I am now sharing. I went and purchased mine on today. I will keep everyone posted on the results.
 
In regards to helping deal with fibromyalgia, there are benefits to eliminating inflammation and decreasing the everyday pain associated with arthritis and other joint pain.

Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Advocates say it treats wound infections and other conditions.

WebMD takes a look at what the science says about using manuka honey as a medicine

Components of Manuka Honey are listed below 

Hydrogen peroxide is a component of honey.  The peroxide gives the  most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including manuka honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities.

Another antibacterial component in manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. This is a great benefit in combating issues you may be dealing with in your body in regards to fighting infection.

In manuka honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound -- dihydroxyacetone -- that is found in high concentration in the nectar of manuka flowers.

MG is thought to give manuka honey some of its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect. But, there may also be other compounds involved in the medicinal effect of manuka honey ( follow link below for additional information )

How is it used.....

Bounce Back

  

The only thing I can say is that you have to keep fighting. Sometimes this is easier said than done. Over the past few weeks, I have been in a struggle because I had major surgery.  It has been a real struggle to keep my mind  straight and the strength to fight through all the physical pain. In this writing, I will briefly share my experiences and tools that helped me and just might help you. I am on my " Bounce Back"

I had a surgery where I was supposed to be in the hospital for maybe two days. Well those two days turned into 10 days of round the clock care. I thank God for a good treatment team and support system. I had a condition that was called ovarian remnant that had developed  a cyst (benign mass) that had created a blood supply and caused my internal organs to be matted together and had to be corrected. Also during the procedure my colon was injured and to be repaired. Long Road to recovery, as I have been very sick and over there past few days, I have begun to gain more of my strength back but not without a fight and a press. I thank God for prayer as when it felt that it was not getting better just calling/ humming "Jesus" gave me just the push to keep pushing.

"My Advice to Bounce Back"

Pray

Keep a positive attitude 

Have a good support system (family , church family & friends)

Listen to others who have had similar experiences

Follow instructions of medical time

Be in a positive environment 

Try to eat if at all possible (for a period of time, I could not keep anything down)

Keep scriptures before you to build your faith...... 

 5Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.…Proverbs 3:5-6

Much Love, Nora

Understanding Fibromyalgia Pain

It's very difficult to wake up and feel worse than you did before you went to sleep. It's even more difficult when you realize that there is really nothing that you can do to change how you feel other than to keep the faith that you will have some relief one day. The physical discomfort of Fibromyalgia is very difficult and it is hard to understand when you don't get any relief or answers to know exactly how to eliminate the symptoms other than with some type of medication that has awful side effects that may be more detrimental that the condition it's self. I was told that you want die from Fibromyalgia because it's not a terminal illiness, but the medication, especially over medication just might. So to my readers, be careful and aware of the medications that you are prescribed and alert tour attending physician of anything new or stage going on after you start a new medication. I have trying just about all the prescribed medications from Lyrica, Savella, Cymbalta, Armitriplyne, just to name a few. I have not received any positive results and that is my primary reason to educate myself on other natural means to heal fibromyalgia. Even though there are more bad days than good days, I keep a positive attitude about life because it could be worse and I honestly tell you that this is what helps me to get through the tough days... I look to the hill from whence cometh my help... Most of us find Fibromyalgia hard to explain and even with trying to explain, people (family, friends,) still seem not to understand.
Will they ever understand...Maybe not! What do you do? Educate yourself and keep a positive attitude...Don't worry about what others think because it's not healthy. It's a stressor that you don't need. Focus on You, Not others and for sure not the condition it can consume you and make you feel worse. Much Love �� Nora.....

Many of us who struggle with Fibromyalgia and other Chronic Pain conditions also deal with always feeling drained and tired. In most cases no matter how much sleep you get, for some reason you still just feel Super Tired. I know I am not ridding on this train alone. In research, I have learned that the diet play a great role in how one feels. I was told that I was Vitamin D deficient and I know have to take Vitamin D twice a week. I must admit that with my busy schedule that I am not really good at taking all that medication and I have to do other things to supplement in that regard.
