Doing so will help us to reemerge in the spring with vitality and vigor.
Simple meal swaps that focus on seasonal offerings, grounding lifestyle practices, adaptogenic herbs, and the cultivation of balance, are all key ingredients to a staying healthy through flu season.
The seasonal transitions into the darker, colder months can leave your body feeling dry and depleted. Tending to your body’s needs for increased nourishment and more digestible foods is fundamental for a smooth transition between seasons, all year long. When you support a healthy digestive and immune system during times of seasonal change, you give your body the resources and “back-up” it needs to face any colds and flus headed your way. Focus on preparing meals with seasonal ingredients, like carrots, beets, pears, citrus, celery root, and more, and prepare them in ways that are grounding, like low and slow cooking methods, and in warming dishes like soups, stews, warm beverages, and more!
Luckily, many of the most beneficial herbs for cold and flu season are probably sitting in your spice cabinet or on your counter right now – making them the perfect immune-supporting addition to any breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Garlic, thyme, ginger, oregano, to name a few, are some of the most powerful and safest antivirals and antibacterial herbal medicines we have available.

Honey: Not only is honey a superfood, it may also help prevent both viral and bacterial infections, including colds, flus, and more! Honey, especially raw/unprocessed honey, offers a wide array of nutritional benefits, makes a great sugar replacement in coffee or tea, and can be eaten right off the spoon as a delicious, throat-soothing remedy with immune-boosting benefits.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa): Turmeric is a well-known herb for its bright color, and without a doubt, this herb is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory botanicals recognized by modern research.

10 Health Benefits of Raw Honey
Health Benefits of Raw Honey
Nearly 8,000 years ago, honey harvesting was already a key practice. Cave paintings just outside Valencia show an individual working to gather honey from the bees. Humans and honey share a history predating many other foods, including farmed fruits, vegetables, and grains, and even domesticated animals.
Raw honey would have been one of the sweetest treats available to early man, and it would go on to become part of folk remedies, early medicine and much more. In fact, even today, raw honey holds a place of power for many people in their lives, and with good reason. It means amazing benefits.
Toward a Definition
It’s important to understand that raw honey isn’t what you might purchase from a grocery store shelf. Instead, it’s the pure stuff that bees make as they gather nectar from the flowers around them.
Raw regular honey is usually unfiltered and unpasteurized, which means that it hasn’t been through the heating process that kills many of the benefits that come from this valuable substance. Instead, the nutritional power of the honey remains intact, ready to work for you. What can raw honey do when you begin to consume it regularly? Take a look.
The Health Benefits of Raw Honey You’ve Missed
Raw honey has long been a powerful option for many, and one quick glance at its biggest benefits and you’ll quickly realize why.
Offers More Antioxidants:
You’ve likely ready quite a bit about antioxidants in recent months. Everyone has free radicals inside their body, but they can be quite dangerous if the levels become too high. They have continually been shown to be higher in those who suffer from ongoing health conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
While your body has antioxidants to fight those excess free radicals, supplementing those is a way to maintain the right balance. Raw honey is a good way to do just that. In fact, some types of honey contain as many antioxidants as fruits and vegetables do, and that can help protect the cells in your body from any damage the free radicals might cause.
In turn, that could keep you healthier and prevent chronic disease issues. In fact, one study found that the antioxidant polyphenol, which is found inside every bottle of raw honey, can actually play a role in the prevention of heart disease.
Fights Bacteria and Fungus:
Another one of the many raw honey benefits you might discover is the fact that it has been known to have both antibacterial and antifungal properties. Research shows that raw honey has hydrogen peroxide inside naturally.
Hydrogen peroxide works as an antiseptic, which can help kill unwanted bacteria or fungus on or in your body. Honey works in another way to fight bacteria and fungus, though. It also helps keep wounds moist and creates a protective barrier thanks to its high level of viscosity, which essentially seals out infection.
Along with the fact that raw honey has the power to kill bacteria and fungus that could create further infection in wounds comes the fact that it actually promotes healing. Over the past several years, researchers have found that raw honey has the ability to boost healing time on wounds because it can help regenerate the tissue that has been injured. It has even been shown to create pain relief in seriously injured burn patients because it helps to decrease inflammation.
Provides a Good Source of Phytonutrients:
Plants contain thousands of chemicals that help protect them as they grow, and phytonutrients are one of them. While there are many different kinds of phytonutrients, one of the largest groups is flavonoids.
Research has found, though, that finding the right source of phytonutrients like flavonoids to add to your diet can help to enhance your body’s own processes and keep it working well. Raw honey contains flavonoids. In fact, it’s one of the two major bioactive molecules packed inside, and that means it could be useful in keeping your body incredibly healthy.
Acts as a Digestion Aid:
Having stomach issues? You’re not alone. Every year, 62 million Americans are diagnosed with serious digestive issues, and honey has been shown to treat many problems. It has long been known as a prebiotic, which means that it actually builds the good bacteria that already live in your intestines.
Prebiotics work a bit like a fertilizer in that they ensure the good bacteria have the ability to grow in your digestive system. Raw honey is a great source of prebiotics, which can help prevent digestive problems if you’re already suffering with them. It can also help you deal with them, though, after you already have a problem.
In fact, studies have shown it’s even been shown to be an effective treatment for Helicobacter pylori, which is one of the most common causes of stomach ulcers today.
Fights Cold and Flu Symptoms:
Not only can raw honey help you stay healthy, but should you struggle with common problems like the cold and flu, honey can help. You may even be already using it! If you’ve ever added honey to your hot tea when you have a cold, you’re likely doing it because it makes you feel better.
It’s an age-old sore throat remedy, and it can also function as a natural cough suppressant. In fact, some studies have shown that it’s just as effective as ingredients in over-the-counter cough medications when you swallow one or two spoonfuls.
Works as an Excellent Vitamin and Mineral Enhancer:
One tablespoon of raw honey means access to lots of different vitamins and minerals you may already be supplementing through other means. When you start consuming raw honey, you begin to enhance the amount of niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, and zinc in your body. All of those are key to keeping you healthy.
The memory-related section of your brain is subject to an incredible amount of stress, not just from the world around you but also from problems like air pollution and much more. Raw honey, though, has the power to reduce that stress by actually reducing inflammation in your brain. This means that it could offer real enhancement in your ability to remember more and move forward in today’s ever more complicated world at a faster pace.
Assists in Weight Management:
More than one-third of people in the United States today are obese, and that means thousands are continually looking for a way to better manage their weight. Many studies have found that replacing sugar with raw honey helps to lower blood sugar levels, triglycerides and even suppress appetite.
A small University of Wyoming study found that appetite responses were measured in both women who ate honey with breakfast and those who ate sugar, and they found that honey could actually protect women from overeating thanks to the glycemic response triggered in the body after consumption.
Offers Allergy Relief:
More than 60 million people a year suffer allergy symptoms throughout the spring and fall, but raw honey can actually offer some relief for those allergies. Raw honey is packed with bee pollen. As the bees nearby go from flower to flower, they collect pollen from each, just a tiny bit.
When you eat the raw honey, you also eat that tiny bit of pollen that gives you so many allergy symptoms. Over time, consuming raw honey with that same pollen in it can help you experience fewer allergy symptoms because your body actually develops a more reasonable response to it as it gets desensitized to the pollen itself.
Raw honey offers amazing health benefits, but it’s important to note that it is still a source of sugar. As a result, if you suffer from a condition like diabetes where sugar levels must be carefully monitored, check with your doctor before you begin adding raw honey to your diet. Additionally, children under one should never consume raw honey.
If you’re ready to experience the benefits of raw honey in a way you never thought possible, try Sunny Honey! Pure, raw, and wholly unfiltered, it’s an amazing opportunity your body will absolutely love, thanks to the fantastic health benefits.
