Honey When Warmed Turns Poison!


Love your honey lemon tea much?
It's time to rethink!

During my university days, after classes, me with my bunch of girl friends would stop at @fillicafe to chitchat and have our favorite zaafran teas with milk, sugar, and their secret zafran recipe with saffron, cardamom etc (#drooling๐Ÿ˜‹)
.
While all of us ordered zaafran tea, one of my friends would order lemon tea with honey and mint. I used to tell her the same “dont drink this poison” and she never ordered it again.
.
During my 5.5 years of university doing BAMS( Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery- yes it IS a helluuva long course) we were taught a million (yes, a million) times about the goodness of pure honey and its various benefits if used both externally and internally.
.
Externally, warmed honey is used in #vasti - an Ayurvedic detox treatment for cleansing the gut, to alleviate many diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, disc bulge, for pain and inflammation etc.
.
But internally, Ayurveda warns the use of honey in any heated form - directly or mixed with warm milk, warm water, warm lemon water or with tea, etc
.
Ayurveda explains that warm honey causes “ama” in the body and its properties turn to that of a poison once inside the body. Ama is a condition where the mucous and toxicity of the body increases leading to many diseases.
.
How to take honey? All honey available in supermarkets are heated to extreme temperatures and packaged. Don’t buy honey from stores. Buy honey from people who sell natural honey directly from the bees. Have it raw, not heated!
.
So think of me before you sip that hot lemon tea with honey next time!
.
I have seen dietitians recommending warm water with honey to lose weight. Next time, tell them Dr Rekha told me don’t have it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

TAG your FRIEND who LOVES lemon tea with honey!!๐Ÿฏ
