Ancient Egyptian healing

Honey Making A Medical Comeback

...(AP) Amid growing concern over drug-resistant superbugs and nonhealing wounds that endanger diabetes patients, nature's original antibiotic - honey - is making a comeback...More than 4,000 years after Egyptians began applying honey to wounds, Derma Sciences Inc., a West Windsor company that makes medicated and other advanced wound care products, began selling the first honey-based dressing this fall after it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Containers of honey have been found buried in Egyption tombs--thousands of years old--still edible and flowing. As pointed out by posters over at WitchVox, some are trying 'do-it-yourself' treatments instead of the "medically approved" dressings.
