Honey And The Budwig Protocol
Many ask us if honey will feed cancer since it is sweet and is a form of sugar. The answer is that raw honey, although sweet, does not act the same as sugar does in our body. Unlike refined white sugar, unpasteurized honey contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Studies have shown that raw honey has various cancer-fighting benefits. Many of the antioxidants found it contains are classified as flavonoids that have anti-inflammatory properties. It also has antibacterial properties and is full of enzymes that aid your body in digesting it.
Raw And Pure
It is only when the honey has been processed by being heated and boiled at high temperatures (to maintain its liquid texture indefinitely on the shelf) that it loses these properties and becomes like sugar. We must warn against the kinds sold that are possibly not really 100% and pure! Some are diluted with rice sugar and other unwanted ingredients that will make it cheaper.
So please make sure that what you are buying is pure and raw. At the Budwig Center, we perform a food scan on our patients to determine if honey will help their digestive system or irritate it. The test also tells our patients if they should be adding it to the Budwig muesli or not, in their particular case.
