Honey + Lemon

Thanks to all the well-wishers, my concerned friends. Thank you so much for your prayers. Due to your kind prayers, I'm now back blogging. The headache, the muscular aches and pains have subsided but I'm still not feeling myself yet. I'm still left with coughings and a sore throat which are about to subside too.

As expected, some have presumed that Along, Ain and Apit might be getting an adik baby he he...How delighted hubby and me if it is true and nothing but the truth. But no...no such thing. I won't be knocked up as my protective shields are just too efficient he he...Well, unless it's "kun fayakun.." hubby and I will be more than happy.

Hey, I've just been under the weather - I've caught a cold. I didn't go to any clinic though. When hubby's not around, no way I'm going out of my shelter (unless my kids are sick). So, I've been depending on honey and lemon these few days.

Scientific research shows that by taking a spoonful of honey (with or without water) can help you get rid of the irritating phlegm when you have a cold and also sooth your sore throat. When mixed with a few drops of lemon juice, not only it tastes good but also helps reduce the flu as lemon contains a lot of vitamin C. Thanks to honey and lemon. Without them, I can't seem to shake off this persistent cough. My cold's better now. Alhamdulillah.


Honey is Allah's gift to humans and it is even mentioned in the Qur'an in surah An-Nahl. If you google 'honey' or 'madu', you'll find lots of information about the health and medical benefits of honey.

3 bulan Naza, biar betul. Tu la yg pulun minum air madu n lemon ni sbb tak nak prolong sampai 3 bln. Betul ke blh tolong carikan genuine honey from Msia? Nak genuine Msian honey yg dari Gunung Ledang punya, bule kaaa???

Ziela, my kids take a teaspoon of honey)manuka honey, antiseptic honey from NZ) insyaAllah every morning. The seldom get running nose, cold and coughs, alhamdulillah. I got the honey masa gi NZ ari tu but later found out dkt tesco pun ada jual the same bottle only at 29.90 je. This honey is very thick, not runny like other honey. If scoop dgn spoon memang tak drip honey tu. Check hyper market kat sana I think ada kut. Try google Manuka honey.It works so well with my kids that they don't have to take supplements anymore as honey is a complete food kan.
