Not just acid reflux but other digestion problems as well. If you have any of these problems (acid reflux, GERD, heartburn, ulcer or inflammation) get less busy and try raw honey. Specifically, it helps in the healing of damaged esophagus and treat H. Pylori (bacteria) infections in the stomach. This bacteria cause a lot of digestive woes, like ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and even gastritis.
Raw honey also has beneficial enzymes that help digestion and give your digestive system some time to rest.
The best thing is that raw honey lines your stomach and esophagus and aids in healing damage or inflammation. This will considerably reduce intestinal problems.
So the best thing is to take a teaspoon of honey before major meals. I take it twice a day to soothe stomach bloating.
Raw honey also has sugar, but the rich nutrition found in it offsets the ill effects of sugar. It also has properties synthesizing and metabolizing fats and proteins, which is good for your digestion. Thus, raw honey is a good thing to take if you have stomach and digestion problems instead of relying on medicines.
Mind you, a lot of medicines for stomach or digestion can be lethal when taken for long periods. It is best to take natural remedies. But do consult your medical doctor before taking raw honey, just to be sure.
