//ALLEVIATES ALLERGIES// A common theory is that honey acts like a natural vaccine. It contains small amounts of pollen, which if the body is exposed to small amounts of it, it can trigger an immune response that produces antibodies to the pollen.

If using honey in this manner, its important to consume local raw honey to your area so that you are exposed to the local pollen.
