Cheryl,
What type and brand of Manuka honey. It is hard to find UMF 16+ anywhere but online. Will bio active 5+ from New Zealand work just as well?

Try whole foods they'll have it. I don't know abut the 5+ it may not be strong enough. But seriously - try whole foods.

Good luck!

Your husband should see a dentist and have flouride trays made asap! He will need to use them every single day to help his teeth withstand the effects of radiation. This is very very important! My teeth werent so lucky and had severe radiation damage to them. I eventually had them pulled as they were crooked and all loose.

Have your husband enjoy all his favorite foods now as his sense of taste will change for a few months.

Actually I was worried about the same thing the study I read said no (go figure!!!) I cant remember the details but it had something of sugar (as its not really a sugar) but I used it from week 3- 8 (two weeks post rads) and then stopped now I only us it if I have an oral irritation, (not often!!!) I think maybe long term use - might possibly cause issues but I also rinsed frequently and brushed x 2 and used a water pik to Clean around my gums (still do) so far so good... My dentist says he's happy ! smile

my understanding of dental decay is that it is bacteria which goes on to produce acids that causes the problem. Sucrose in table sugar (and much of the additives in food) allows development of bacteria and plaque. Manuka is known to have antibacterial properties which is why it was tested in leg ulcers all those years ago. So, if honey has antibacterial properties making it difficult or impossible for bacteria to grow, and bacteria cause cavities, then the logical leap is that honey doesn't have the same issues as other sugars. Just joining the dots here - I might be missing something though.

This is my understanding only and I could have the concept wrong so would be pleased if one of the dental professionals might explain this better.
