Causes Stomach Ache After Drinking Water Mixed With Honey?
Why do I often feel congested and stomach ache after drinking honey dissolved in water? (Any type of honey). thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Honey is a very useful nutrient and is considered quite safe overall. There are various benefits of honey that can be enjoyed by various groups and ages, except for children under the age of 1 year. Water is also a neutral liquid, so it should not be a problem if mixed with honey.
Therefore, in your condition, what you experience is likely to occur because you do have an allergy to honey, intolerance or inability to digest honey, the honey consumed is not real honey, contamination has occurred either in honey or in cutlery, or stomach pain arises because other conditions apart from honey consumption.
Unfortunately we cannot confirm this possibility because we did not carry out such an inspection on you. Our advice, if you really want to know more, check with your general practitioner first, to be sure again about your condition, such as how long this has happened, how much honey you drink, how long the symptoms persist, and so forth. The handling that you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, it would be better if you avoid consuming honey first. There are various types of other foods, be it fruits, vegetables, nuts or meat that can provide nutrients and benefits such as honey, which is more convenient for your digestion. Only then when your doctor has discovered what the problem is, you can go back to consuming honey as usual. So, hopefully answering your question.
