I'd read, years back, that if one eats local honey they will create a natural immunity for the local allergens and no longer have allergies. It seemed so incredible, in a world where there are so many sufferers of allergies, that the solution was that simple so I never actually did it. However, last year, when I was just pregnant, my midwife told me that if I got an asthma attack (I've had asthma since middle school) while near my delivery date, it could mean serious complications and would definitely keep me from having the natural childbirth I really wanted. Her solution: a nip or two of local honey about eight times a day.
Well, I went ahead and did it, starting in February, and continued to have the occasional issue through spring but once autumn ended, I realized that I hadn't had an allergy attack or any asthma in months. Craziness! Aaaand, I still haven't - over a year later. I feel like I have to share this amazing thing with you. Here are two websites that may help you find local honey. It did take a while to kick in, but now, after years, I'm allergy-free!
And what tastier way to cure oneself, I ask?
P.S. Babies under one year can't eat honey. It's okay - they're sweet enough anyway! <3
