Healing Honey

Hosted by


Dr. Karen Dente, who writes about medical issues for various English and German-language publications, discusses the healing power of honey. The antibacterial properties of medicinal honey help heal chronic skin wounds such as diabetic ulcers, burns, and bedsores. New Zealand beekeepers harvest Manuka Honey, which is being promoted as a wound treatment. The Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Medihoney for use in wounds and burns in July 2007.
