    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi thechronic,

    I would definitely talk to your doctor before attempting to use the Manuka Honey. You don't want to risk having an allergic reaction, and your doctor or allergist will be able to give you professional advice on whether or not it would be safe to take.

    Best wishes,
    Atti
