Have you heard about Manuka Honey? And why are people using it during post-op?

What is Manuka Honey?

Manuka honey is a special type of honey that is native to New Zealand. It is made by bees that collect nectar from the flowers of the Manuka tree, which is also known as Leptospermum scoparium. This honey has been used for centuries in traditional medicine, and recent studies have shown that it has many health benefits, including for post-operative care.

Benefits of Manuka Honey for Post-Op Care

Promote wound healing

Manuka honey has antibacterial properties that can help prevent infections in the wound. It also contains enzymes that stimulate the production of new skin cells, which can help the wound heal faster.

Reduce inflammation and swelling

Manuka honey contains antioxidants that help to neutralize free radicals, which can cause inflammation in the body. This can help to reduce pain and discomfort after surgery, and may even help to speed up the recovery process.

Minimize scarring

Manuka honey contains high levels of methylglyoxal, a compound known for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can also promote the growth of healthy new tissue and collagen, which can help the scar heal more evenly and fade over time.

Manuka honey is a powerful tool for post-op care. If undergoing surgery, consider incorporating manuka honey into your post-operative care routine AFTER CONSULTING WITH YOUR SURGEON.

Other Benefits of Manuka Honey

  • Promotes digestive health

  • Soothes sore throats

  • Calms a cough

  • Improves skin health

  • Treats acne

  • Promotes oral health

  • Boosts immunity

Disclaimer: It is highly recommended to use medical-grade manuka honey to achieve the best results for post-op recovery. Always consult with your surgeon FIRST before trying any new products or remedies to avoid any possible complications or adverse effects. While manuka honey has been shown to have numerous benefits for wound healing and scar reduction, it is important to use it under the guidance of a healthcare professional to ensure safe and effective use.
