Miel de Abeja
Although we often take it for granted as a commonly available foodstuff, honey is considered an extremely sacred substance in many cultures across the globe. The collection of honey for hu- man consumption dates back thousands of years, to well before the emergence of the Greek and Egyptian civilizations. Its ben- e ts, both physical and spiritual, are well-documented in religious texts, including the Hebrew Bible, the Koran, the New Testament, and numerous others. Not surprisingly, the indigenous healers
of the Peruvian Amazon are privy to these bene cial effects, and have been implementing miel de abeja, or bee honey, in their treatments since the start of their recorded history.
