If you could see me now you would laugh. I've got honey all over my face and trying to exercise and not sweat it off. Wrong way to do this. Don't exercise with it on! I did good on the walking. I had a headband on to catch the sweat. But the weight lifing I had to wipe a lot of it off it was running. I kept it on for about 1 hour. I think after my shower and I'm just working in the office I'll put some more on. I know I'm going to be beautiful. Ha! Its fun to try anyway! I'm on a kick of trying to go natural. I was trying to think of all the old remedy's I had grew up with. I remember as kids in the spring we would have to eat a lot of greens and drink sassafras tea. I can remember mother boiling the roots and it would be a pink liquid.
She would put a little honey in a cup and we would drink it everyday for about a week, I think.
It was to clean your blood. We were always healthy. I know when I was in my thirties I started breaking out in boils. A lady in the neighbor hood reminded me of the sassafras cleaning your blood and she said that's what I needed. So I did. They went away and I have never been bothered by that again. My son got a wart on his wrist and his great grandmother told him to get a little Vick's salve crush an aspirin in it, put some on the wart, put a bandage on it and do that for a week or until it was gone. It went away. You know if I had told that teenager to do that he would have never did it but since his great grandmother told him that was cool. Don't you love it. I can remember being the same way as a teenager. Always would listen to anybody but my parents. They could tell me the same thing.
Its spring and I am having a nostalgia spell. My dad always picked spring violets and brought to my mom. He never bought mother flowers but he did that for over 50 years. They are both gone now but I have some sweet memories.
I'm rambling again. Oh well that s what's so nice about blogging. You can be yourself.
I started Monday taking one tablespoon of honey mixing it with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon , making a paste like and putting it on 1/2 of a bagel. I like Kim's bagels. They are low in calories. They say cinnamon and honey cures most of the diseases. I read it was good for the heart. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries. Regular use of it relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalizes the arteries and veins. This is some of the things that was listed that honey and cinnamon help, bladder infections, toothache, cholesterol, colds, upset stomach, gas, immune system, indigestion, influenza, longevity, pimples, skin infections, weight loss, cancer, fatigue, bad breath. Sparkpeople we need to start taking a dose of this. If it is true we will all be doing great.
I think I am a sweet-a-holca. You know what I mean. And maybe 1 t. of honey will keep me from craving sweets so bad. We'll see. It sure won't hurt. I have got to get up from here and go ride my bike and fix lunch. Nice chatting with you.
