HoneyDoc ®: Manuka Honey Nasal Rinse

May 2018

By Christine Cheng, R.Ph.

Q: My Ear Nose Throat (ENT) Doctor suggested I try using manuka honey to help me with my chronic sinus infections. I’ve heard of manuka honey to be used for wound healing, but how do I use it to help my nose?

A: Manuka honey has natural antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. It can help stimulate the growth of tissues involved in the healing process and can help relieve pain by relieving inflammation. Most products on the market are meant to be taken orally or to be applied topically, but HONEYDOC®’s Manuka Honey is specially prepared to be used to rinse the nasal sinuses. It is an effective alternative to conventional saline sinus rinses, especially in those with chronic sinus infections or who have been suffering a sinus infection that seems resistant to oral antibiotic therapy.
