THE POWER OF ACTIVE MANUKA HONEY ...
Manuka honey is one of the most useful and therapeutic forms of honey in the world. Manuka uses range from healing sore throats and digestive ills to curing infections. Long used for severe burns, because of its rich anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Manuka honey has been shown to promote rapid, improved healing.
Inflammation is an essential part of the body's healing and what starts off the repair processes to replace damaged tissues. Anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used, but can slow the healing process. Active Manuka Honey has a potent anti-inflammatory characteristic and will not slow healing.

1. Manuka Honey
Research at the University of Waikato has recently revealed a mechanism by which the anti-inflammatory action of honey is achieved. a protein that the
bees add to the nectar they collect to make honey, called Apalbumin 1, suppresses the action of white blood cells engulfing bacteria and other particles,
which is the start of the process of inflammation. It was also found that methylglyoxal which is present in manuka honey at very much higher levels than
in other types of honey reacts with Apalbumin 1 to make it a lot more effective in suppressing white blood cells.

Effects of Ginger in Health and Physical Activity: Review of Current Evidence. International Journal of Preventive Medicine. 2013 Apr; 4(Suppl 1): S36–S42.
The health-promoting perspectives of ginger are well-known. It can treat a wide range of diseases via immunonutrition and anti-inflammatory
responses. As a result of anti-inflammatory effect of ginger, it can reduce muscle pain after intense physical activity. Likewise, it improves cardiovascular
disorders, diabetes mellitus, and gastrointestinal health.

Clinical Therapeutic Trial. British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology 1980 May;9(5):453-9.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis on orthodox first-line anti-inflammatory treatment plus homoeopathy were compared with a similar group of
patients on orthodox first-line treatment plus placebo. There was a significant improvement in subjective pain, articular index, stiffness and grip
strength in those patients receiving homoeopathic remedies whereas there was no significant change in the patients who received placebo.

Cayenne has powerful pain-relieving properties when applied to the skin. It reduces the amount of substance P, a chemical that carries pain messages to
the brain, in your body. When there is less substance P, the pain messages no longer reach the brain, and you feel relief. Capsaicin is often recommended
for the following conditions: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as joint or muscle pain from fibromyalgia or other causes; nerve pain from
shingles and other painful skin conditions that happens even after the skin blisters have gone away; pain after surgery; pain from nerve damage in the
feet or legs from diabetes; low back pain.

Peppermint oil’s main efficacy is through its ability to act as a spasmolytic agent, altering smooth muscle contraction. In addition, peppermint oil has
also been shown to have activity as an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial agent.

of Experimental Biology. 2009 Feb;47(2):113-20.
Calendula officinalis Linn. (Compositae) is widely used in traditional medicines as an anti-inflammatory agent and has also been reported to have antibacterial,
anti-fungal and anti-viral activities. Moreover, treatment with the extract enhanced the antioxidant status in the body, as seen by increased
levels of endogenous antioxidants catalase, superoxide dismutase and gluthathione in animals.

oil on staphylococci responsible for wound infections. Postepy Dermatol Alergol. 32(1): 21–26.
The clary sage oil was active against Staphylococcus aureus, S. epidermidis and S. xylosus with MIC values ranging from 3.75 to 7.00 μl/ml. The results
of the in vitro tests encourage to use formulations containing sage oil as the active natural antimicrobial agent. Because of its antimicrobial properties
clary sage oil may be applied to treat wounds and skin infections.

The results of the current study suggest that the ingestion of single doses of M. officinalis can modulate both the mood and the cognitive performance of
healthy young volunteers in a dose- and time-dependent manner.
