Hey! Honey!


Honey has been used to treat wounds since ancient times. Within the last decade microbiologists have made it possible to treat wounds with a medicinal grade honey which received approval from the FDA in 2007.  Manuka honey is all natural with a very high antibacterial  potency that not only provides a moist wound healing environment for the tissue in wound  beds, but also optimizes the healing process.  Medicinal honey cleanses, facilitates debridement, reduces edema, lowers the pH, and acts as a natural deodorizer in the wound bed. 

Grove Medical carries two brands of Manuka honey based wound care products.  The first is Medihoney manufactured by Derma Sciences, the second is Manukamed brought to you by Links Medical Products .

Please contact us today if we can be of any help to you!  You may also contact our Clinical Nurse Consultant for more in-depth discussions.
