Honey to Heal

ImagePro-tip: Eating just a tablespoon of local honey reduces seasonal allergies, or “hay fever.”

Though the science is inconclusive, theories suggest that honey made from nearby pollen acts like a vaccine, building up your immune system with small doses of allergens.

If Seattle’s spring pollen makes your eyes and nose watery, check out a nearby farmer’s market for minimally-processed honey.  Add its sweet goodness to your tea & coffee, baked goods, or eat it with a spoon.
