Treating your pilonidal cyst with honey is a wise decision on your part. Honey is so potent in healing certain sores and other skin ailments that it is even used by medical doctors and alternative health care practitioners in certain parts of the world to treat various diseases.
Truly a gift from nature, honey is the only food in the universe that does not spoil. That should give you some indication as to its powerful and unnusual natural qualities.
How to use honey to treat a pilonidal cyst
Always clean the area first with an antibacterial soap before applying.
First, make sure you’re using 100% raw honey. Much of the generic honey you find in the supermarket is only 50% honey and 50% corn syrup. Always read the label before purchasing.
Using honey to treat your cyst is a fairly simple process. Just take some high quality honey and apply generously around the wound. Honey is rather sticky, so covering it with a porous gauze dressing makes sense and will save you from having a messy situation with your underwear.
Change the dressing a couple of times a day.
Is all honey the same?
While most honey is the same in terms of chemical composition, Manuka honey is the only honey in the world that has a special non-peroxide (UMF) activity factor that inhibits Helicobacter Pylori and other virus causing bacteria.
If I had to choose a top quality honey, I’d probably go with Manuka Honey by Healthy Honey Shop, a specific type of honey made from bees in New Zealand.
The wonderful thing about Manuka honey is that it is so versatile. It’s unique properties can help heal a huge range of conditions from stomach ulcers to infections, as well as increasing your energy levels and general well-being.
