Skinny Pantry Offers Honey to Battle Allergies

Dec 31, 2010 06:27AM

In sunny Southwest Florida, allergy sufferers can face year-round challenges from seasonal plants and flowers that bloom all the time. Instead of taking antihistamines, with their side effects of dry eyes and drowsiness, the Skinny Pantry, in Fort Myers, suggests giving local honey a try. The store says that two teaspoons a day can work like a vaccination, gradually exposing the body to pollens in order to build up natural antibodies that help avoid reactions to blooming plants.

The Skinny Pantry offers a variety of honey brands and flavors, including Melaleuca/Brazilian Pepper Honey.
