This isn’t for me, since my allergies seem to have cured themselves a couple years ago, but I’m curious. Lately I’ve been seeing some friends on Facebook saying they’re suffering from (presumably pollen) allergies. The wide consensus seems to be that eating local honey works just as well, or better, than antihistamines for purposes of pollen allergies.
I can’t find any real info on this online, at least nothing reputable (tons of homeopathy advocacy sites, which doesn’t bode well for its veracity, but I’ve been surprised before). Not even quackwatch seems to have anything on it, only that old Royal Jelly/Bee Pollen bit. So, what’s the deal with local honey and allergies?
