Recently, my mom read an article and learned, that honey and cinnamon can help cure a common cold. After she read the article, she got really excited and immediately copied down the recipe, to the exact measurements. I guess you could call it good timing, because just last week my dad was suffering from a head cold. My mom saw this as a good opportunity to test out her knew found knowledge, and used my dad as a test subject. For three days, he mixed honey and cinnamon together, and washed it down with warm water. And what do you know? Three days later, he was feeling better, and his congestion seemed to just be a bad memory. I am not saying, this was a miracle cure or anything like that, but it makes me think that sometimes natural is the way to go.
I was looking online just now, and found some other things that honey and cinnamon can help with. Ha who knew, that honey and cinnamon would be so useful.
