We've all heard the saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."
But beekeepers in Georgia say it's honey that will really do the trick. Research has shown that a daily serving of raw honey from your local area is the answer to allergy relief.
"You're introducing pollens into your system that you wouldn't have normally. And if you're allergic to whatever they're foraging on, it certainly will help you," beekeeper Deborah Sesser said.
"It has been shown to work even in individuals who have chronic bed sores, decubitus ulcers; it's been used to treat burns," pediatrician Dr. Tracy Middlebooks added.
Beekeepers warn, however, that the majority of honey sold in grocery store chains does not contain pollen.
So, the trick is to buy honey from a local beekeeper before it's processed.
