Healing Effects of Cinnamon and Raw Honey

This Village Post submission offers some very empowering information about the healing effects of cinnamon and raw honey…

I got this amazing info about honey forwarded from a friend. Don't know if it’s something you can use, but it seems interesting/encouraging.

Best, Tim J.

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. It will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call “crystallizing.”

When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill the enzymes in the honey.


Bet the drug companies won't like this one getting around.~

It is found that a mixture of honey and Cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also accept honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.

Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.

Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.

Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada, in its issue dated 17 January,1995 has given the following list of diseases that can be cured by honey and cinnamon as researched by western scientists:


Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread, instead of jelly and jam, and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack. Also, those who have already had an attack, if they do this process daily, they are kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of the above process relieves loss of breath and strengthens the heart beat.

In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as you age, the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and veins.


Arthritis patients may take daily, morning and night, one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. If taken regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week, out of the 200 people so treated, practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis started walking without pain.


Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder.


Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol is cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.


Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and clear the sinuses.


Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also clears stomach ulcers from the root...


According to the studies done in India and Japan , it is revealed that if Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.


Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacterial and viral diseases.


Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals.


A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ' Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.


Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Take four spoons of honey, one spoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of water and boil to make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans also increase and even a 100 year old, starts performing the chores of a 20-year-old.


Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it removes pimples from the root.


Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections.


Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. If taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.


Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder for one month three times a day.


Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens, who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts, are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M. when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, increases the vitality of the body within a week.


People of South America , first thing in the morning, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water, so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.


Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing. Remember when we were kids? We had toast with real butter and cinnamon sprinkled on it!

Valory’s Comments: Hey Tim, thanks so much for the great information! Cinnamon essential oil is extremely powerful having a high ORAC value of 10,340. It's one of the oils in Thieves, an oil blend from Young Living. This is a very popular oil blend and has been incorporated into a line of antibacterial cleaning products because of its effectiveness. You can also safely ingest it if put into a gel cap and I’d add a drop or two of other ingestible oil with it – I like to use primrose oil. I included this in a program to clear up a pesky bladder and kidney infection recently. Cinnamon oil is often used for cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, viral infections etc. So it seems the oil does have similar properties to the plant material, i.e. fresh cinnamon powder. (this is not always the case).

Readers – please note that the complete source of this information (other than the mention of “The Weekly World News, a magazine in Canada”), is unknown to me. It is posted for educational purposes and you are responsible for your own health and well-being. Also, if you are a regular visitor to this site, you know that I generally avoid using the word “cure” as the act of healing is a multi-dimensional process. That being said, if you happen to have a personal anecdote you’d like to share with us about how you have used honey or cinnamon to affect your own health, please post it here for the benefit of all.

Update 4/9/13: Hmmm, according to wakingtimes.com, seems the original sources for this info came from: WebMD.com & LiveStrong.com & the article originally appeared at NaturalHealingNetwork.org.

Update 1/1/17: This is a repost of the original Healing Effects of Cinnamon and Raw Honey post by Tim J. along with accompanying comments from everyone dating back to 2013. If I recall, this submission was originally posted back in 2009 or 2010. Not sure what happened to the pre-2013 posts. May have lost them when I took the original post down. I apologize for the loss of that info. While I was traveling, there was a rash of spamming comments that occurred to the original post and frankly I was not in the mood to sort through them all and edit out the mess they'd made of it. Instead, I took the whole post down. But then I reconsidered the matter recently when I was updating this site to the new design. Since so many people have found this info useful over the years, well, here it is again. Hopefully the spammers will give me a bit of a break before resuming their barrage. :)

Aug 14, 2016 Bile Reflux
by: Parveen

This is a message for Henry who posted on April 09 2016 about his wife's bile reflux. Valorous I am ok to share my personal experience with Henry. Henry try the following mixture for your wife. I have used it personally as have many of my friends and family with great success.1 tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water or juice of your choice 3 times daily before meals or when your wife is feeling bile reflux ( I know it can be very uncomfortable and painful). Please only use raw Apple Cider Vinegar which contains the ' mother'. It can mainly be found I health food stores. I would recommend to drink with a straw to avoid the ACV damaging tooth enamel. You might also want to try a website called earth clinic which is where I found many people's personal experiences. All the best.

3 Months only?

I read that you should only take honey and cinnamon for three months. Is this true? If so can you continue to take it after a gap and how long a gap?

Thank you.

Paste vs. Drink
by: Lynda

Can you make a paste of raw honey and ceylon cinnamon, take a spoonful and receive the same benefits or is it important to boil the cinnamon first and make the drink mixture?

Valory: Lynda, go ahead and make the paste. Boiling the raw ingredients will destroy some of the healing benefits.

Mixture for Bile Reflux?
by: Henry

Hello. My wife is suffering from bile reflux and I'd like to know what a proper mixture of honey and cinnamon would be to help her condition. Thanks!

Valory: Hi Henry. Good question. I personally don't have an answer to it however. This thread is more of an anecdotal commentary rather than giving out medical advice. If you do try different dosages, beginning small, and going from there, perhaps you could revisit and let us all know how it worked for your wife?

Cinemon and the kidney
by: Anonymous

I read in several articles that Cinemon is not good for kidney problems.
Is there any truth in this

Valory: Hi Kim. Yes, the cinnamon most commonly found in the stores is from the cassia family and too much of it or over a long period of time can strain the system. You want to find and use Ceylon Cinnamon which is also known as true cinnamon. See some of the previous posts for more info.

genetic respiratory infection
by: pj

Would like to know the correct mixture, and can cinnamon and honey cure even inherditary conditons? Really got a problem with broked nostrils especially at night

Valory: Hi PJ. Can't give medical advice (dosages) as you know, but I was definitely able to treat my own upper respiratory condition successfully this last winter using about 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon and about a Tbsp of raw organic honey every morning w/breakfast. I was using other natural treatments as well, but the infection was stubborn and only seemed to really respond once I added the cinnamon and honey to my daily regimen. But everyone is unique and responds differently.

The honey and cinnamon mixture on my psoriasis was amazing in one day. However, since it's on both arms and both legs, it's kind of difficult to keep covered. Any suggestions

Valory: maybe just have a couple sets of pjs and apply overnight, wearing one set of pjs which you'd put in the laundry to wash the next day and switch off? or any long sleeved shirt and leggings that are comfortable to sleep in?

Blood thinner and Ceylon cinnamon
by: Anonymous S.J.

I'm on the blood thinner Pradaxa. Is it OK to use Ceylon cinnamon and raw honey? What about regular cinnamon you find in markets.


Valory: S.J. herbal and folk remedies can be very powerful medicinals. So, if you're also using a prescribed pharmaceutical, please refer to your medical practitioner regarding how these substances could interact with each other. Also, please refer to Jo Joyce's comments regarding the differences in cinnamons.

Ceylon vs Cassia Cinnamon
by: Jo Joyce

Yes it does have to be a certain Cinnamon,
Ceylon cinnamon has been hailed as the "true cinnamon" or the "real cinnamon" that possesses outstanding health benefits especially for the diabetics and those challenged by obesity and high cholesterol issues. Unfortunately this cinnamon which is native to Sri Lanka and sourced from the plant Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, is rather unknown to most people and also known as Cinnamomum Verum or Mexican Cinnamonor (Canella). In the United States and many parts of Asia, what the majority of us have been buying from the Supermarket and groceries and consuming is actually not the real cinnamon but Cassia cinnamon, which comes from a different plant called Cinnamomum Cassia (or Cinnamomum Aromaticum), also commonly known as Chinese cinnamon that are mostly cultivated in China and Indonesia. While the two species of cinnamon share certain characteristics such as antimicrobial, and in terms of inhibiting the growth of fungi and yeast, and regulating blood sugar, their contents differ much in terms of the amount of coumarin, which is a naturally ocurring substance with strong blood-thinning properties. The coumarin level in Ceylon cinnamon is negligibly small, while that in Cassia cinnamon is an appalling 1200 times higher.The ingestion of large amount of coumarin or consumption of coumarin over a prolonged period of time can cause serious health damages and a negative impact on the liver and kidney. German FDA has warned against consuming the excessive intake of Cassia bark due to its coumarin content.

Apple cidar vinegar, honey & ground cinnamon
by: Anonymous

I have had low hemoglobin for 4 years, once as low as 5.1. Doctors could find no reason for this. I have had 6 blood transfusions during this time. Then a neurologist recommended that I begin using Bragg raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar (2 teaspoons in 8 ounces of water daily to relieve leg cramps. This worked! Then I read about the benefits of raw honey and ground cinnamon mixed together. I now mix 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 2 teaspoons of honey in a small bowl. Then I put this mixture into an 8 ounce glass of water along with 2 teaspoons of the Bragg apple cider vinegar. I do this 3 times daily...first thing every morning, midday and before bed. My hemoglobin has been getting back to normal range (12.2 - 16.9) without any medication or blood transfusions! This my doctors cannot explain either. However my hematologist and 2 staff members have begun using this formula for general benefits. I have been contacted my others who have low hemoglobin to get this formula.

For mixing just get a small plastic container that has a lid and mix equal parts of honey and cinnamon into a thick paste, add a bit more honey if needed to help soak up the cinnamon, no need for boiling water (not recommended) you then have supply that can last a week or more.
Leave near your bedside. You can then have one full teaspoon before sleep and one when you wake up, i suggest you wash it down with a glass of warm water to aid swallowing.
Good luck to you all.

not sure of cinnamon
by: Anonymous

I'm not sure about the cinnamon but you should NOT heat the honey if you're using raw honey.Heating raw honey over 115 degrees pasteurizes it and kills all the beneficial enzymes.

Boiling Cinnamon
by: Jo Joyce

I understand and have fully read up on the differences in the cinnamon, thank you.
My question is about boiling the cinnamon, many articles say it is to be boiled and let seep for 30min, cooled and then the honey added. Is this just for the cinnamon sticks to seep and strain to eat or does this apply to the powder form? I'm wondering if it has a chemical reaction that makes Cinnamon in any form easily digestible etc... or only applies to the sticks to leach the cinnamon out of them.

Hi Jo - I personally don't have an answer for you regarding this matter. Perhaps someone else will comment and address your question. If I happen to run across any research on this, I'll be sure to post it here for you - Val :)

Reply to comment of Poor Info by gayle
by: Marjorie

gayle is right about destroying the beneficial healing properties in the honey. By putting honey in boiling water.

That is why you let your hot water sit for 30 minutes. It is a little warmer than room temperature, so that it does not kill off the em-zines that are in the honey, fast. Putting honey in water will kill off the em-zines, but it takes about 12 hours for it to kill off all the benefits that are in the honey.

You never put honey in boiling water. Not even to get it to turn back from a crystallized form. As you want to use warm water in a bowl to get it back to liquid honey.

Answer: How Much Honey & Cinnamon for Losing Weight
by: Marjorie Hunt

It is a 1:2 ratio
This is one of the easiest diet drinks to make, and I lost 20 pound in 1 year with very little exercising.
All that you need is a:
Measuring cup, Water, Spoon or Strainer, Ground cinnamon, Honey, and a Cup
1 Boil 1 cup of water.

2 Add 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon into the boiling water. Stir with the spoon until most of the cinnamon dissolves. Cover for 30 minutes to steep.
Note: When adding cinnamon to your water, it may boil more if your water has reached a full hard boil. This is a chemical reaction.

3 Filter out any large particles of the cinnamon by either using a spoon or a small strainer.
Note: Cinnamon does not dissolve. Cinnamon is made from the bark of a tree, just as tea is made from other flower and leaves.
The strainer is better, to get the extra cinnamon out of the water.
Have your Honey in the cup that you are going to pour the Cinnamon water into, as you strain out the extra Cinnamon from the water.

4 Add 1 tsp. of honey . Stir with the spoon until the honey is completely dissolved.
Note: The water will have cooled down enough after the 30 minutes. That the healthier enzymes in the honey will remain alive.
I have found that Spun Honey or Organic Spun Honey will work even better than the other honey, as they are not processed as much as the others. If you have never used the Organic Spun Honey before, you might want to cut back on the honey a little bit, as it has more flavor to it and may taste a little too sweet for you at first.

5 Drink half before going to bed, and store the rest in the frig.

6 In the morning, drink the other half and wait 30 minutes before eating.
Note: You might want to stir it up a little, as you might not have dissolved all of the honey into the cinnamon water. As you may see some dark brown stuff in the bottom of your cup, that is some of the cinnamon and the honey.

You will want to make this drink every night before bedtime, as you will drink half of it before going to bed, and the other half in the morning a half hour before eating. This is not something that you can make more than 1 ahead of time, as the enzymes in this will start die-ing off in the water.
If you are on Facebook, look for Cinnamon & Honey Diet Drink/Progress

Bacteria From Bees Confirmed as Possible Alternative to Antibiotics
by: Valory

While consumers of raw honey can tell you that it works wonders, researchers wanted to know exactly why? What are the exact compounds that make raw honey nature’s antibiotic? How has it protected bee colonies forever (until recent obstacles set in)?

Raw honey has been used against infections for millennia, before honey – as we now know it – was manufactured and sold in stores. So what is the key to its antimicrobial properties?

Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have identified a unique group of 13 lactic acid bacteria found in fresh honey, from the honey stomach of bees. The bacteria produce a myriad of active antimicrobial compounds.

These lactic acid bacteria have now been tested on severe human wound pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Pseudomonas aeruginosa and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), among others. When the lactic acid bacteria were applied to the pathogens in the laboratory, it counteracted all of them.

Used In combination with Skinny Fiber worked
by: ricky garza

My friend Joe Roybal, formerly from Toppenish, Washington, had enlightened me about these remedies via Facebook. I tried it In combination with a weight loss product called Skinny Fiber. Not only did I lose 40 lbs In three months, but I boosted my memory up amazingly, have rejuvenated my energy, cured my dandruff, and a host of other benefits. I am 6'1" and weigh 231lbs today. I need to lose at least 40 lbs more which I will do In about Four more months. I feel so much healthier now since following this program something I hadn't felt In over ten years. I will continue with this remedy for the rest of my life. My primary care provider says I have certainly extended my longevity if I can maintain my weight control. I will contine.. Why would I riisk my good Health now that I have finally found something that works so well? ricky.gee53@gmail.com 503 334 7035.

Type of cinnomon and when is someone to young
by: Anonymous

As far as the cinnomon is concerned Ceylon cinnomon is true cinnomon it is from Sri Lanka and contains much less cumoren in it than the type you bye in the grocery store which is called cassia and can be harmful in large doses. I order my cinnomon on line to ensure that I am getting the right type. As far as age goes you should never allow a child under the age of 4 years to use honey of any kind, because their body is still developing natural flora in their intestinal tract and bacteria even the good kind which is your natural flora is effected while in the developmental stage before 4 years of age. After that age the average person has developed enough natural flora as not to be effected.

I am 28 years old and have been using Stakich raw cinnamon honey from MI for two months now, I put a heaping spoonful in my coffee every morning, within the first week the pain in my hands (hard for me to open jars, ect.) from mild arthritis ( which I had been diagnosed with several years earlier) has disappeared, as for the other claims I cannot vouch for, but for arthritis it is we'll worth it, inflammation from arthritis ican be damaging and could eventually lead to crippling and disfigured hands.

honey and cinnamon enquiry
by: Anonymous

I know about the honey and cinnamon drink some use for weight loss...my question is...can one make a paste of the honey and cinnamon and eat it followed by water to get the same effect. I think, for me it is better instead of the volume and taste of the drink but I don't know about the effectiveness. I have viewed other "recipes" for different illnesses that use the paste but when it comes to weight loss the recipe always call for the cinnamon to be steeped in hot water.

Severe nasal drainage
by: Jorge

I have been struggling with severe nasal drainage for several years and find that on many nights, the drainage keeps me from sleeping because of persistent clearing of the nasal passages and a severe cough. I was given two medications by the ENT doctor who treats me. One is a nasal spray, twice a day and the other is a tablet. Both have side effects. I started using the cinnamon and honey mix twice a day and after the second day, I discontinued the medicines and the drainage has stopped. Being able to sleep without the annoyance of severe coughing is priceless.

Valory adds: Wow Jorge! That's fantastic. And thanks for the share :)

Valory adds: I prefer using raw honey over processed honey and I prefer using organic, non-irradiated herbs/spices as well. Though, according to Marjorie Hunt, she prefers spun honey. See her entry from Nov 30th.

Cinnamon & Honey Weight Lose
by: Marjorie Hunt

When I first saw this last year, I took time to find more information on this before I had even started trying this Cinnamon & Honey drink for losing weight (on Feb. 28, 2013), and I had started a site on Facebook to help share this information and my progress on how I am doing on https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cinnamon-Honey-Diet-DrinkProgress/418679128221647.
This really does work, and I have found that the Spun Honey works the best.
Some people that are doing this with me:
*Have seen a boost of energy - not everyone will feel that they have a boost of energy
*Not craving sodas as much as they use to
*Improved on their control of their sugar count
*Lose of weight - even those who do not exercise enough to really lose weight can lose weight
*Lose of inches
You really do want to take your measurements when you are doing this. As the FAT Cells weigh less than your MUSCLES.

effects of honey/ cinnamon on blood sugar
by: Valory

A quick search of my files produced the following article:

Cinnamon Combined With Magnesium Decreases Blood Pressure More Than Any Hypertension Medication In The World

Valued in ancient times as currency and once considered more precious than gold, cinnamon -- one of the world's oldest known spices -- has one of the highest antioxidant values of all foods and its use in medicine treats everything from nausea to menstruation and energy to diabetes.

"Cinnamon itself has insulin-like activity and also can potentiate the activity of insulin. The latter could be quite important in treating those with type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon has a bio-active component that we believe has the potential to prevent or overcome diabetes," researcher Don Graves said in a prepared statement.

Cinnamon Combined With Magnesium Decreases Blood Pressure More Than Any Hypertension Medication In The World

Also, this study posted at GreenMedInfo:

Natural honey lowers plasma glucose, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and blood lipids in healthy, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic subjects: comparison with dextrose and sucrose. – GreenMedInfo Summary

Last paragraph of the Abstract states:

In diabetic patients, honey compared with dextrose caused a significantly lower rise of PGL. Elevation of PGL was greater after honey than after sucrose at 30 minutes, and was lower after honey than it was after sucrose at 60, 120, and 180 minutes. Honey caused greater elevation of insulin than sucrose did after 30, 120, and 180 minutes. Honey reduces blood lipids, homocysteine, and CRP in normal and hyperlipidemic subjects. Honey compared with dextrose and sucrose caused lower elevation of PGL in diabetics.

I have heard that one should not add honey in hot water as the enzymes present in honey gets destroyed. So is this true????

Yes, it's true. Warm water, say, 105 degrees Fahrenheit or less should be Okay

Hearing or weight loss
by: Valory

I have no personal experience with using honey and cinnamon for either weight loss or hearing loss. Apparently, this article originally appeared in WebMD, I did not write it. That being said, I would never boil the honey. However, dissolving in warm water should retain the benefits of using raw honey.

Hi, thanks for the sharing, anyway. what do you mean by "Equal parts of honey and cinnamon powder taken each morning helps to restore hearing loss" how do i go about it? with a glass of warm water?
May 10, 2013
by: Anonymous

I read that one should never boil honey. It destroys the enzymes in the honey. It is these enzymes that give raw honey all of its amazing qualities.

I suggest heating a cup of water in the microwave for a minute and then stirring in the honey and cinnamon.

I personally don't see any reason why you can't just mix up a batch of raw honey and cinnamon ahead of time if you think you'll be using approx. the same ratios each time for a while.

Use Raw Honey
by: Valory

Yes, use it right out of the jar. Just, when you go to buy your honey, make sure the jar says 'raw' honey. If it's not raw, then the vast majority of the beneficial constituents have been destroyed by the processing of the honey.
