Now, I have never tried these honey
and cinnamon cures myself, and I
would always recommend that you visit your doctor for advice about any
illness. In addition, I have not found much in the way of scientific
evidence to support these claims, so it appears they may have their
basis in 'old wives' tales'.
In addition, some of the evidence I found for cinnamon on its own, was in relation to a particular type of cinnamon (e.g. cassia cinnamon). However, the cinnamons purchased from food stores tend to be blended.
In addition, it is suggested by some sources that too much cinnamon can even be bad for you, for instance, potentially causing damage to the liver. So if you have a problem, perhaps it's best to just go to the doctor?
In my view, there are some scientifically proven claims made about honey - for example, it's antibacterial properties are very well documented, and these probably qualify honey for a variety of different uses where antibacterial properties are useful. You can read more about this subject on my page Is Honey Good For You? I also recommend my page examining the scientific evidence for the honey and apple cider vinegar diet, and the research support for honey and apple cider remedies.
I don't agree with over-hyping things, and I believe it can be irresponsible to do so. There are, afterall, perfectly valid reasons for eating honey (e.g. you enjoy it).
However, I really enjoyed reading about these cinnamon and honey home remedies - some of the claims are quite bizarre, and made me smile! Anyway, here they are:
If you have high cholesterol, again I recommend you seek advice rather than relying on this one, because I have yet to see any evidence for this, yet apparently, some people claim that one of the benefits of honey and cinnamon is that it can reduce cholesterol. The formula: mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon together with water. I'm not convinced.
Make a warm drink, combining water, 1 teaspoon of honey, and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Gargle before swallowing. Well, if nothing else, it sounds as though it may go down well on a winter’s day! To be fair, the antibacterial properties of honey may help, but I'm not sure how good it will be for your teeth to gargle with it. No comment on the cinnamon.
If I had a bladder infection, I’m not sure I’d want to wait around to see if honey and cinnamon worked as a remedy! I’d be over to my doctor like a shot! However, the recipe says you should add 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of honey to warm water. No, I think a visit to your health care professional is a better idea.
Apparently, taking honey and cinnamon can reduce flatulence. Really? Is that just a load of hot air or what, I don’t know?! Okay, sorry for the pun!
It is said that honey and cinnamon can be used for hair loss. Make a paste combining olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Cover with a shower cap for 15 minutes, then wash the hair normally. Well if it works, I'd expect a cosmetics company to produce a scientifically proven formula and format, because I'm sure that such a product would be worth a fortune! That said, there are a number of benefits proposed for using a little honey on the hair, because it aids dryness. You can read more on my page about honey and hair masks.
Take 2 tablespoons of honey mixed with a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon before food to reduce acidity in the stomach. Does this work? I don't know, and I don't suffer from indigestion, so I'm unlikely to try it. Or you could take a simple antacid. You could also avoid any foods that you are aware can cause problems for you.
