Honey Therapy

The honey used in this study was an Egyptian clover honey of a carbohydrate content of 78.4 g/100 g, pH of 3.7 and a moisture content of 18.8%. The fructose and glucose content of the honey were 37.8 and 30.2 g%, respectively. Starting from October 3, 2002 the patient stopped all medicines and consumed honey in an empirical dose of 2 gm/kg/ day assuming body weight 75 kg i.e., 150 gm (125 ml) honey daily. The daily dose was divided as 50 ml (60 gm) honey dissolved in water and given before meals twice daily. The remaining 25 ml (30 gm) were used for sweetening purposes. Dissolving honey in water enhances the anti-microbial properties of honey, facilitates swallowing and helps adjusting the dose. As each gm of honey yields 3 kcal, this daily dose of honey provided 450 kcal. This amount of calories was not subtracted from his meals as there was no specific diet restriction except for food preservatives and additives, beverages and sweets.
