Godbleshyou. Tired of hearing it? Allergy season is in full swing, and unless you just got off the red eye from LA to NY, those teary, half-moon red eyes just aren’t acceptable. Bees to the rescue. Last week a good friend of mine saw me tweeting about my bad allergies and shared his secret: Local honey cures allergies. I’d heard about this before, but have always been skeptical when someone tells me something will actually cure my allergies. Plus, how long would this take? Meds work in an hour. Deciding to give it a try, I walked over to Andrew’s Honey at the Union Square Greenmarket, one of the most robust local, organic food sources in New York City, located just around the corner from the Spa Week headquarters. Andrew (above, left), who does the harvesting himself right here in Manhattan and Brooklyn, explained why it works: “Local honey contains the same local pollen that you’re allergic to, so when you eat it, you inoculate yourself.” TESTED: After a week of keeping a pot of Andrew’s whipped (you’ve gotta try it) 100% pure, raw, local honey at my desk, and dipping into it a few times a day, I am thrilled (and quite astonished) to report that I have not sneezed since. Allergies, GONE. All those years of being afraid of bees, and they were only trying to help. Go and give it a try for a week and let us know if it works for you too!

Until then… here you go. 3 Responses America's Best Green Markets | Spa Week Daily May 27, 2010 […] off our Green Market Honey high, when Michelle found success in a jar of local honey to cure her allergies; we wanted to share the benefits of shopping Green Markets nationwide by […] Reply Start a Conversation Cancel a Conversation Connect with Enter your WordPress.com blog URL http://.wordpress.com Proceed Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
