Experiences are crucial for us to learn what to do and what not to do. You may know about us from the about page on how we have used honey for asthma, allergies, and skincare. However, there is now another piece that we would like to share with you. My name is Crystal as you already have learned so far. What I would like to share with you is very personal, but may help others learn from my experiences with raw honey. I was diagnosed at an early age with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder), when I was eleven I was on the highest dose of Ritalin legally allowed to give a child. I decided for myself that I did not want to be on medication any more so I quit them.
Many years later, in 2008, I started playing with my diet learning what I could have and could not have. I started researching things that had bad reactions on my body that I did not like. During this research I learned that part of my ADHD was a reaction to the MSG that I was eating through my diet. Sugar has also been a big issue for me. What is really important is what I started to discover at the end of 2012 into 2013; I had no reactions with raw honey. What does this mean? When I eat sugar I have depression, my mind starts racing, and I can’t focus or sit still. With raw honey I don’t have any of these issues. I eat honey and I can actually focus on the task at hand. Yes, I have had to retrain myself on some levels of learning how to focus, however, when I eat sugar I notice I can’t do this even through all the retraining.
Raw honey is very natural; when it is ingested it does not have the same reactions as processed white sugar will. What is even more delightful is I have had customers come in and say they have noticed that they have a better day with raw honey then if they were to eat sugar. Frank and I work really hard to share our experiences and be educated so that people know about honey and what it can do for them. This is why we are so passionate, excited, and proud to talk about honey.
So learn from my experiences and play with your diet. Make it a challenge if you must and switch out your sugar intake with honey for a week and see what happens; you might be surprised at what you learn.
