Importance Of Honey In Ayurveda

Honey is a substance with many useful properties. It is non-fatty (dry) and in taste sweet and mild astringent. It is considered as the best medicine in the treatment of Kapha. Honey improves vision, relieves thirst and prevents bleeding (premature bleeding in case of pregnancy) as well as vomiting. It is used in the treatment of cough, respiratory problems and diarrhea. It is also treating poisons, hiccup, diabetes, skin diseases & worms. It breaks up hard masses in the body, cleanses & heals wounds & joins & heals broken bones. It increases Vayu.

Honey is very popular vehicle for administering Ayurvedic medicines particularly in the case of respiratory diseases where Kapha is predominant. Powders such as Taleesadi used in the treatment of Kapha diseases, are usually mixed with honey and administered. Honey is also used as an ingredient in many medicinal preparations. Honey is known as a yogavahi, a substance which when mixed with other medicinal substances, enhances their properties.

However, while using honey certain precautions have to be observed. Honey should not be heated and it should not be added to substances which are hot in temperature. Bees collect honey from all sorts of flowers including poisonous flowers. Honey thus collected and assembled, when subjected to heat, breaks down and turns toxic. Sometimes people take honey with hot water or tea or hot lemon juice. This is not a healthy practice as honey is subjected to heat. Honey should not be taken in large quantities as it cause indigestion. Indigestion caused by honey is very difficult to treat.
