Treatments for Fatigue

To revitalise your energy levels:

Chronic fatigue is a warning that the body needs some attention. To remedy a poor quality sleep, honey is highly recommended, as it acts as a sedative to the body. Twenty minutes after the honey has been taken into the mouth it has been digested and absorbed into the body. This is because it is a pre-digested sugar, already digested in the stomach of the honeybee, and it requires no effort on the part of the human stomach to digest. Keep the following mixture by your bedside, to be taken as indicated:

Three teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 275ml (1/2 pint) of honey.

Take two teaspoons of the mixture before retiring. This should induce sound sleep within one hour. If, however, you have been unable to sleep within this period, repeat the dosage.

Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Half a tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder should be taken in the afternoon at about 1500hrs (3pm) when the vitality of the body starts to decrease.

This information is an edited extract from the book 'Honey and its many health benefits' by Margaret Briggs. And is available for purchase from Bookmart Ltd, Blaby Road, Wigston, Leicester, LE18 1SE.
