It specifically described the use of honey to heal wounds and to treat urinary disorders. In ancient times, Greek athletes drank water and honey daily to maintain their health and well-being.
Hippocrates, who was considered the father of Western medicine, used honey in all his medicines and also used honey as food. The use of honey allowed him to live for nearly one hundred and ten years. Pythagoras, who is considered the father of mathematics, is also said to have lived a long life because he also added honey to his diet.
