Like I had already said, I wasn't aware at the time that I had candida.
On the other hand, the manuka honey was effective against the symptoms I was experiencing - so I doubt it did any harm.
I did some searching, and came cross this interesting article:
Sissons CH, Anderson SA, Molan PC. "Suppression of Candida albicans in plaque microcosm biofilms by Manuka honey." A paper presented at the IADR/AADR/CADR 82nd General Session in Honolulu, Hawaii: March 2004. Abstract published in: J Dent Res 83 (Spec Iss A):abstr 0974, 2004.
Most intruiging :)
Manuka honey is well established as an antibacterial honey, but they are beginning to find it may have an anti-fungal role as well. There are already munuka oils for topical yeast infections, and a sufficiently strong preparation of manuka honey can be effective in the gut.
