Magic of Cinnamon & Honey!


I was enjoying my short hibernation...cosy doing nothing!!....the inertia had caught me on badly until one sweet 'pari' hooked me on to some interesting information on Cinnamon & Honey magic....and ....

Honey!I couldnt control the itch to share the wonderful here I go...once again to blogging...?Sloth and slumber....ah me! tis all dunlop and good year all over!! Frantically wanted to get rid off all those tyres!! So this magic came as a wonderful tip...I still do not know the authenticity of all the claims...nor do I know whether they are just another placebo...but I believe there is no harm in trying...So Here I go verbatim the whole lot of tips which my wonderful friend Pari has shared.... on the Cinnamon-Honey Magic!Sorry...the trials and experiments are absolutely at your own personal risk!! :)

"It is found that mixture of Honey and Cinnamon cures several diseases.
Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world.
Ayurvedic as well as Yunani medicine have been using honey as a vital medicine for centuries.
Scientists of today also accept honey as a Ram Ban (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases.
Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients as well.
A famous magazine named Weekly World News published in Canada dated 17 January, 95 has given a list of diseases that can be cured by Honey and Cinnamon as researched by western scientists."
Here goes the list and recommendations.

"Take one part honey to two parts of luke warm water and add a small teaspoon of cinnamon powder, make a paste and massage it on the paining part of the body slowly.
It is noticed that the pain recedes within a minute or two.

Arthritis patients may daily-morning and night, take one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
If drunk regularly even chronic arthritis can be cured!!

In a recent research at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week out of the 200 people so treated practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain, and within a month, mostly all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis, started walking without pain!

Hair Loss:

Those suffering from hair loss or baldness, may apply a paste of hot olive oil, one tablespoon of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder before bath and keep it for approx. 15 min. and then wash the hair.
It was found very effective if kept for 5 mins. also...(Hmm...a medicine for kashandi(baldness), then what abt asooya(jealousy)?!!...(for the less informed,a malayalam proverb says that there is no cure for baldness & jealousy!!)

Bladder Infections:
Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of luke warm water and drink it.
It destroys the germs of the bladder.

Tooth Ache/Bad breath?:

Make a paste of one teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey and apply on the aching tooth.
This may be done 3 times a day daily till such time that the tooth has stopped aching
People in some parts of South America,it seems,the first thing they do in the morning is to gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water so that their breath stays fresh throughout the day.... hmmm...interesting...

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, if given to a cholesterol patient,reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10% within 2 hours( I really hope this works!).

As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken 3 times a day any chronic cholesterol can be cured.

As per the information in the said journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

Common Cold& Influenza:
Those suffering from common or severe cold should take one tablespoon luke warm honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days.
This process will cure most chronic cough, cold and clear the sinuses.(Well, this seems to have worked for me too!)

A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural ingredient which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

Infertility-Come Honey! let's have some honey!! ;):

Yunani and Ayurveda has been using honey for years in medicine to strengthen the semen of men. It is said that if impotent men regularly take two tablespoons of honey before sleeping, their problem can be solved!

In China, Japan and Far-East countries, women who do not conceive were given cinnamon powder for centuries to strengthen their uterus.

Women who cannot conceive may take a pinch of cinnamon powder in half teaspoon of honey and apply it on the gums frequently throughout the day, so that it slowly mixes with the saliva and enters the body.

Here is a story-A couple in Merryland, America had no children for 14 years and had left hope of having a child of their own. When told about this husband and wife started taking honey and cinnamon as stated above, the wife conceived after a few months and had twins at full term!!!

Stomach Upset:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache(this also seems to work!) and also clears stomach ulcers from the root.
GAS : According to the studies done in India & Japan, it is revealed that if honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food, relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals!

Pimples&Skin Infections
Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste.
Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it next morning with warm water. If done daily for two weeks, it can remove pimples from the root.

Eczema, ringworm and all types of skin infections are cured by applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts.

Wanna strong Heart?
Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, apply on bread or chappati instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast.
It reduces the cholesterol in the arteries and saves the patient from heart attack.
Also those who have already had an attack, if they do this daily, are kept miles away from the next attack!!!
Regular use of the above relieves one from breathlessness& palpitations .

In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients with this successfully and have found that due to the increasing age the arteries and veins which lose their flexibility and get clogged are revitalized.

Hurray!Weight Loss!!

Daily morning, half an hour before breakfast, on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water.
If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person!!
Also drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet! Yippee!! God! this should!!(1tsp Cinnamon powder+1 tbspHoney in 1 Glass of warm water).

Immune system
Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.
Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts.
Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles to fight bacteria and viral diseases.


Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully.
Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should take daily one tablespoon honey with one teaspoon cinnamon powder for one month 3 times a day.


Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful than detrimental to the body strength.
Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon power in equal parts are more alert and flexible.
Dr. Milton who has done research says that half tablespoon honey taken in one glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3.00 p.m. when the vitality of the body starts decreasing, increases the vitality of the body within a week.

Hearing Loss
Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder taken in equal parts restores hearing too!

Live longer!!
Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly arrests the ravages of old age.
Take 4 spoons of honey, 1spoon of cinnamon powder and 3 cups of water and boil to make like tea.
Drink 1/4 cup, 3 to 4 times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age.
Life span also increases and even if a person is 100 years old, starts performing the chores of a 20 year old.

Arey! what more do we want...come let's have some honey!!...hmmm....cinnamon too!!
  • Cinnamon

  • Honey

  • Caution:
    Dont go bananas hearing all the benefits of Cinnamon and use it can be toxic as per several other researches...So use cinnamon in less quantity..(max-1tsp at a time)...The simple fact that cinnmon oil has been proven to be an effective mosquito killer tells us that it can be toxic as well.."Adhikamayal Amrutum visham"(A proverb in malayalm which translates as "Even ambrosia can become poison if taken in excess quantity).

    I dont know about the Honey+cinnamon mixture, but cinnamon works magic on your cholesterol and your triglycerides, in particular. I can say for sure this is not placebo for i've tried it myself and found it to be true. The key is Cinnamon should be soluble and powdered cinnamon is the best we could do today.
    A doctor in the US patented extracting soluble cinnamon called "Cinnulin" and cinnulin is supposed to work wonders on diabetics as well.

    Will you reply to me....coz I want to know for sure.

    indianadoc said...

    Thanx all my dear friends once again for all those lovely comments......

    Well, dear Malar, I too have heard of Honey's bleaching effect when combined with lemonjuice...and I am not very sure of its effect on baldness/hair as I said in the intro I would like to leave it to u'r personal discretion and risk.

    I am a first time visitor to your blog - I googled a recipe for chicken pickle and your last year's post came up. I am intrigued by your recipe, but I had a couple of questions. In the ingredients you mention coriander leaves, but you haven't mentioned when to add that in the method. Also you mention parsley, but that is not listed in the ingredients and I couldn't find when to add that. Now I am "mallu" woman just like you, but living in the US and I love to cook. Usually I would have used my common sense and went about adding the ingredients, but since it is pickle, I wanted to be sure as I want to keep it preserved for sometime. Please let me know if you can. You have a great blog and thanks for sharing all your valuable recipes! You can email me at

    A very Informative article,

    Anonymous said...

    I have seen this article copied and pasted at so many places.
    Your seems to be a slighly modified version(spicier headings :-P)
    I was googling for exact information on weightloss benifits and the exact dosages. And there are atleast a 100sites that have this same article "blogged" everywhere and it keeps appearing on my search.
    If you notice it just says boil honey and cinammon for weight loss. But doesnt tell you the amount you have to take of each ingredient
    Anyone knows the dosage or is this is just a copy paste blog

    indianadoc said...

    Thanks a ton all you friends out there who found this article interesting...this was no pearl of wisdom that I had found out on my own...this was some info passed on to me by a dear friend of mine...and I felt that blog could be a better place to share wit more could be a placebo as I had said..but what if it works for some...the thought committed me to this write up...My dear anony friend who found it elsewhere hopefully might have read that I had writtten in very legible language that I am just sharing... the info and there are no claims of authenticity made anywhere in the post...Hope that explains the cut copy paste syndrome!!

    Naaz said...

    It works! it works like a miracle. I have tried it for the past few weeks and have reduced amazingly.I cant believe it!Thanks :)

    Weight Loss
    Daily in the morning, 1/2 hour before breakfast on an empty stomach and at night before sleeping, drink 2 tablespoons of honey with 1teaspoon of cinnamon powder boiled in one cup water. If taken regularly it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. The honey and cinnamon aids in digestion and rids body of stomach related disorders. Take care that you also eat sensibly a balance nutritional diet. % small meals are better than 3 large ones and soups are a great substitute.


    Mix the cinnamon and honey in the cup and make a paste. Add the boiling water and cover the cup for half an hour. Stir the mixture water and filter it. Wait until it cools enough for drinking and it’s ready.

    “Serving” - I couldn’t think of a better word

    Take one half of the drink before breakfast and the other half after dinner, before going to bed
