Sorry to hear that.  At least I know now.  Honey is something I can definately live without.

I have wondered this as well.  I checked the type base and there is no reason listed as to why honey is an avoid for O nonnies.  Honey has never bothered me in any way like it did you Amazone I.

I can only guess that it's hard for our systems to use, and/or that it spikes blood sugar too quickly.

I still can't help but wonder if raw, local honey would rate better for us O nonnies (maybe as high as a neutral) if it was tested separately from commercial, pasturized honey. In the meantime, I'll continue to err on the side of caution and not use honey personally. I do buy it for my kids though.

I agree... Am also wondering?! Not only are there different types of honey, but then there are local as well as organic ones too? If the rating is for ALL honey how can it be?
I used to actually get a headache eating some types of honey - very sweet, highly scented ones... but can tolerate some (except not if in product on skin)

Possum, I think   it only means that honey contains certain lectins, acids, etc. which are toxins for Explorers. Here's a list for apples, from another thread,

Quoted from Lola
•     GT4 Epigenotoxin (Rutin Phenolics)
•     GT4 Epigenotoxin (High Gallic acid concentration)
•     GT4 Epigenotoxin (Malvin Phenolics)
•     Blood Group O Non secretor Blood Group O Non secretor Metabolotoxin (anti-metabolite)
these are a few reasons as to why apples might not be regarded so one size fit all beneficial due to your individuality and personal variables you inputted into swami

Honey.. I am under the impression that LOCAL honey has the advantage, if taken a teaspoon every week at least, that it would immunize against local allergies.   For those who suffer seasonally it might be worth a try, some have 'relative' success with it.

If the chin itches stop.. or take less. 1/4 t spoon might work just as well..


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!
