Drinking honey and warm water on empty stomach is mentioned to be powerful in maintaining overall health. This is what Prophet Muhammad used to do every day. This way honey can be considered as both food and medicine, as it cleanses the arteries and bowels from impurities.
It is also related that he said: “He who desires protection, let him eat honey”.
[Quran 16.68-69] And your Lord (Allah) revealed to the bees: Build your hives in mountains, trees and in what they build. Then eat from every fruit and follow your Lord’s enslaved paths, from its bellies exits drink of different colors, in it healing for man. These are signs for those who contemplate.
