A nat­u­ral al­ter­na­tive

EQUUS - - Eq Letters -

Thank you so much for “The Heal­ing Power of Honey” (EQUUS 440). As a horse owner and a bee­keeper, I am so grate­ful to have this in­for­ma­tion made avail­able to the gen­eral pub­lic.

I keep medic­i­nal honey in the house for the hu­mans and in the barn for the hu­mans and an­i­mals. I use it for very mi­nor scrapes on the horses and goats and would def­i­nitely con­sult my vet­eri­nar­ian be­fore us­ing it on a large wound.

I first ap­ply the medic­i­nal honey, then cover it with my hand and spray reg­u­lar bug spray around the area to de­ter fly­ing in­sects, in­clud­ing bees. I have had re­ally great suc­cess with mi­nor scrapes on the horses.

Thank you for putting this in­for­ma­tion out there at a time when bac­te­ria are be­com­ing resistant to an­tibi­otics and peo­ple are be­com­ing al­ler­gic to those same drugs. Bees are an amaz­ing lo­cal re­source to keep us all health­ier. At Serendip­ity Farm we love our bees as much as we love our an­i­mals! Mar­cia Tay­lor North Dighton, Mas­sachusetts
