Say Goodbye to Colds Forever

Note: We haven’t ignored or forgotten you. The kitchen renovation is still in progress.  ML hopes to complete the tile installation this weekend!  Which means hopefully I’ll have pictures to share soon.


A couple years ago I discovered that I could completely eliminate my migraines just by altering my diet (more on that here).  After experiencing complete freedom, and saying “adios” to migraine medication Michael Luke and I embarked on a quest to find out just how much healing power God has given food.

One of our discoveries is the combination of honey and cinnamon used to fight colds.  I’ll admit at first I was a little skeptical… something so sweet and good can fight a cold?  But we have been using this mixture all winter anytime we felt a cold coming on and it has worked!  After just a few doses most symptoms of the cold are gone and thankfully you never get that “shoot me now” feeling because of your sinuses being too compacted.

So why does it work?

Simply put… honey is antibacterial and cinnamon is antimicrobial.  Although I wouldn’t suggest using the mixture as a hand sanitizer because things could get sticky!  But if you ingest it for cold fighting purposes it works like little soldiers and kills those pesky germs. Yay!

The Formula

  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamonHONEY AND CINNAMON

Mix together and repeat every four hours. (There isn’t anything magical about every four hours.  I just came up with that time period so that we were able to get several doses in during the day.)  Michael Luke prefers his spread on top of bread.  Noah and I like ours straight up.

The honey and cinnamon yummy goodness is way better than cold medicine or sucking on a million cough drops all day long. Noah even looks forward to taking hers… which is more than I can say for some of her cold medicine.

I must add that I have not been able to completely eliminate Noah’s colds yet.  First off I don’t give here a full dosage every four hours because I don’t want her hyped up on sugar and because she is only sixteen months old.  Second it’s hard for me to know when her colds first start coming on.  Which means most of the time we don’t start the regime until the cold has begun to set in.  Regardless though I believe it helps the cold not to turn in to the big ugly monster that it could be.

When we first realized how well this concoction works we wondered why we had never heard of it before but the more we thought about it the more it made sense.  A simple mixture of honey and cinnamon is not profitable to the drug companies or the doctors… OTC medicine is.  🙂

Sometimes I don’t know why I put God in a box.  Why is it not possible that colds can be fought with the goodness he made for us…. honey and cinnamon.  Isn’t He amazing?


Because I’m not a health nut or scientist check out this cool article that shares even more of honey and cinnamon’s healing power.

    I’d never heard of this remedy, but you can bet I’ll be trying it! When my daughter was a baby, she started constantly having colds. The doctor told me that she was allergic to dust. My instructions from him were not to vacuum while she was around (imagine that one!), take all the stuffed animals away, dust everyday while she’s napping, etc. Then my mother-in-law told me about an old natural remedy to try. She said to purchase whole anise seed and boil it into a tea, then sweeten it with a little Karo syrup. Anise smells and tastes like licorice and is a natural antihistamine. My daughter loved it. I actually only had to use it maybe 3 or 4 times and she stopped having those nasty colds altogether. Now, anytime we start to get allergy symptoms I look for anise seed at the grocery store.

      Wow! That is really cool. I am going to have to remember this little remedy. I love hearing about natural remedies that work. Thanks so much for sharing… and no I can’t imagine vacuuming when your little one isn’t around. When would that be actually? Haha!

    We have been using this concoction, also. It has been working for us. I like the taste and cost! I love your tips!

      I’m glad y’all are still using it too! Sometimes we take it before we are around people with colds just as preventative.

      You are welcome. During the first year it seemed like a never ending cycle for Noah and me. She got a cold and then I got a cold. I got a cold and then she got a cold. After I found out about this remedy I tried to fight the cold for both of us with honey and cinnamon. It’s so much easier now that she is a year old and can have honey and the occasional cold medicine.

      You should definitely give it a try. I take it as soon as a start to have a slight sore throat. If you catch it soon enough that is the only cold symptom you will have. The honey also soothes the sore throat… which is a nice bonus.
