Recently, we all saw Ebola survivors donating their recently toughened blood to save the lives of those in the throes of this horrific thing. The antibodies created in the blood of survivors is injected into the sick. The sick then become well.

While there is no science to support this next theory (nobody but beekeepers can get rich), there is plenty of other evidence: Eating raw honey eases seasonal allergies. Just ask Grandma.

Why? Well, bees flit from flower to flower. The pollen sticks to their wee heads and legs and things. They fly home and work it into honey. Ingested raw (that’s always the kind of honey you want to buy: RAW), these bits of pollen and bee help your body build up resistance to the inflamed tubing some people call “Fall.”

I learned about all this while writing this: It pretty much made the whole thing worth it because I eat raw honey now. I don’t lose 3 months a year to a horrific “cold” known as seasonal allergies.

RAW HONEY, dummy. Einstein KNEW.

ME? LOOSE WEIGHT? Don’t come in here…how about you shut up…….

Fall is an interesting time to lose weight. I say switch one meal out for a all-liquid meal – find an example in here You may get hungry before the next meal. Who cares. Have another one of these. The nutrition is so big, you’ll feel full. Drink a lot of water. That’s what you’re made of, mostly. So you need a lot of it and it to keeps you from feeling hungry.

Fall also makes me think of spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Cinnamon and apples. Turns out that a teaspoon and a half actually slows the rate your stomach digests food, making you feel full longer. Use it. Scientists are to find the next wave of treatments for the chronically obese, a huge problem in American. (And yes, I saw that with a straight face.)
