   Honey   and    Cinnamon

This combination has cured many ills including cancers.

Quite a big claim for 2 of mankind's oldest culinary companions?

This material appears on many websites[1], the seed came from an unlikely source- a 1995 article in the tabloid newspaper Weekly World News[2]. These statements are clearly very popular; but what does that mean (apart from the fact that citing someone else's findings about the benefits of natural healing is about the only safe way to share Natural Health information in the public arena these days)? Natural News[3] has published their opinion on the claims[4] and here is ours...........

Honey is the only food which doesn't go off.

It will do what some call “turning to sugar”. In reality honey is always honey.

This must be one of the clearest and most unambiguous common-sense indications that honey prolongs life. Which also means Honey must be good at preventing the decay and deterioration we know as “disease”. Nearly all commercially processed food needs preservatives just to achieve a brief shelf life for pragmatic retail profitability. Many preservatives used constitute a major health threat[5][6][7][8].

When left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what is better termed “crystallising”[9]. When this happens you can loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was.


Honeycomb - the Source

Cinnamomum zeylanicum - Ceylon cinnamon

Ceylon Cinnamon Versus Cassia Cinnamon
use mouse to see difference

Cinnamon comes from 2 plants and
they are not the same![10].

Cinnamon is probably the first spice used by man - historical records indicate it was in use over 50 centuries ago (3,000 BC).

Ceylon cinnamon is known as the "true cinnamon" or the "real cinnamon" which possesses outstanding health benefits. This cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka and comes from the inner bark of Cinnamomum verum which used to be called Cinnamomum zeylanicum when Sri Lanka was known as Ceylon.

What you will find in your supermarket is most likely not the real cinnamon but Cassia cinnamon ( aka Chinese cinnamon), which comes from a related BUT different plant Cinnamomum cassia which is mostly cultivated in China and Indonesia. While the two species of cinnamon share certain characteristics such as antimicrobial activity, in terms of inhibiting the growth of fungi and yeast, and regulating blood sugar, their contents differ much in terms of the amount of coumarin, which is a naturally ocurring substance with strong blood-thinning properties.

The coumarin level in Ceylon cinnamon is negligible, while that in Cassia cinnamon is 1200 times higher. The ingestion of large amount of coumarin or sustained consumption of coumarin can cause serious health damage.

Honey and Cinnamon

Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world and is a popular subject for life science research[11] which confirms honey can act as a potent medicine[12] for all kinds of diseases and can be used without side effects to treat many conditions.

Cinnamon is also a popular subject for life science research[13]

Cancer cures

Naturally cancer is the “disease” most people are concerned with today and how to “cure” [14][2][15][16] it The original article stated Medical research in Japan and Australia revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully, but all traces of this research seem to have disappeared from the interenet - often a sign (in our opinion) that the natural treatment is effective.

Another sure sign that Honey is an effective treatment for cancers (in our opinion) is the closure of the University of Waikato Honey Research Unit for “Redevelopment”. A terse and uninformative notice[17] is all that remains - all the content and contributions from this research unit have been removed from public scrutiny it seems.

We are extremely grateful to Professor Peter C. Molan, Director of the Honey Research Unit at The University of Waitako, who has prepared this comprehensive bibliography of Research relating to the use of Honey in treating conditions of Cancer[18] and who has graciously given his permission for us to reproduce it here.

The fate of this valuable Natural Health Honey Research Unit seems bewilderingly uncertain - you can read more about “The Curious Case of the Honey Research Unit at The University of Waitako”[19].

Here is the original article

the article as it appeared in a 1995 article in the Weekly World News

Here are some of the claims made - we'll leave it up to you to form your own conclusions:


Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.

Regular use of the above process 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 revitalize the arteries and veins.


Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.


Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.


Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.

Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.


Honey has a long history as an aphrodisiac as well as a powewrful cure for impotence. Because of its potency as an "arousal agent", honey is banned for the celibat clergy of some eastern religions. Last year Austrian researchers found that honey is effective in stimulating hormonal secretions as is cinnamon. In Africa and the South Seas men apply honey externally to their private parts to enhance their sexual stamina!


Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.


A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu..

Redevelopment", "notice");?> is all that remains of this life-saving NZ initiative.


Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.


People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!
