Honey contains strong natural antiseptics that can be eaten, or used topically on wounds.
Parents spread it on their kids’ scraped knees and slurp a teaspoon whenever they feel a sore throat coming on.
Research has now shown the unusual antibacterial activity of honey, leading to a greater understanding of the ability of honey to kill pathogenic bacteria in several different ways.
More than a home remedy for coughing?
In studies, honey was effective against many different drug resistant bacteria, including E. coli.
Honey was able to kill not only the E. coli, but many other types of bacteria. (Dr. Blair is at Sydney University's School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences)
The manuka tree grows in Australia and New Zealand, and manuka honey is even said to be the best cure for acid reflux.

Researchers have found that these honeys, such as organic manuka honey can even prevent a nasty super bugs that have invaded hospitals throughout the western world.
Looks like honey is a safe and tasty herbal natural remedy to have handy at all times, for wounds, acid reflux remedy, cough and sore throat remedy.
We hope that you will be inspired to try honey as a herbal natural remedy. Who thought it would even be an acid reflux home remedy.
