Local honey where to get?

Heard local honey is good for allergies but where do you get one? I live in London.

Do you have any garden centres that sell food or butchers.

Local posh deli/organic healthfood shop or farmers market.

It didn;t work for me, not one bit. Totally ineffective. Having a much better result with fexofenadine.

I think it’s a myth unfortunately.

Is it a myth.

Have a listen to this radio show - it covers it all: www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0018nt6

The London Beekeepers Association has a list www.lbka.org.uk/honey.html

They also have a link on their home page to neighbouring associations.

Great to support local beekeepers but it won't help allergies, unfortunately.

Not saying it's not a myth but that show seems to be about the supposed benefits of Manuka honey so totally different thing to what the OP asked.

@BlanketsBanned the theory is that if you take local honey you become accustomed to local pollens which helps to reduce hayfever.

@GetOffTheRoof if you listen to it, they address lots of things around the medical uses and claims for all honies. Including a review of claims around their allergy properties, and it's completely debunked by science.

Manuka honey if classified as the medical grade standard is, however useful for wound healing when applied to a wound and has antibiotic type properties. But still no good for allergies. And none of it has any effect on anything if it's eaten as the stomach breaks it all down.

Thank you. Very helpful. Was quite desperate at that time.
