Real Honey Ointment

Four ingredients:  Raw Honey, Coconut Oil, Beeswax and Olive Oil.  Sometimes it’s the simplicity within a product that is all your skin needs.  Developed and formulated by Dr. Atif M. Malik from my neighboring desert state of Arizona.  Dr. Malik, inspired by his patients and his passion for Chemistry, has developed a natural ointment that I would consider to be an important, medicinal staple for your medicine cabinet to help treat certain skin ailments.

I have 2 case studies of my own to share and the pictures speak for themselves.



Day 1

Case Study One.

My son, Maximus, is always coming home with a new story to tell of his football practices, scrimmages and games.  While at one of his scrimmages he obtained a large piece of his skin rubbed off by a big tackle on the field.  I thought I would use Dr. Malik’s REAL Honey Ointment to treat his skin.

Day 1.

Maximus’ skin had already gone through the scabbing and oozing stage of the initial injury.  This is approximately the third week after he first acquired the open wound on his arm from tackling his opponent onto the ground.  As you can see, the skin has been traumatized and hypopigmentation as well as a little hyperpigmentation has formed were his skin tissue was torn from his arm.

Day 2

Day 2.

The skin has started to look a little more vibrant.  The pink tone that was in Maximus’ skin on Day 1 is almost diminished.  The hypopigmentation is starting to get pigment back into the skin.

Day 3

Day 3.

The skin keeps filling in with more pigment where the hypopigmentation is found.  The hyperpigmentation is slowly starting to fade, lessening excessive pigmentation on the skin.


Day 4

Day 4.

As each day passed, Maximus’ skin injury filled in two-thirds of pigment into his hypopigmentation.  The skin is ultra-moisturized allowing a safe barrier of oil to protect his skin from dryness.

Day 5

Day 5.

The skin by Day 5 has produced so much melanin production where the skin was traumatized by the injury which caused hypopigmentation.  The hyperpigmentation is starting to lessen, returning back to Maximus’ natural skin coloring.

Day 6

Day 6.

Within 6 days, Maximus’ injury had received three-fourths of his skin with pigmentation.  The skin looks like it is healing greatly from the terrible injury it had received a few weeks prior.  The skin does not irritate him because of the emollient the ointment has in it which helps to protect his skin from losing moisture.  Both the hypopigmentation and the hyperpigmentation are diminishing and it only took 6 days.

Day 30.

Current Day. Day 30.

Only one month later and Maximus’ injury looks almost completely healed.  Small spots on his arm with hypopigmentation linger with mild hyperpigmentation.  Looking at his arm from a distance and his injury looks unnoticeable.  The REAL Honey Ointment helped in the healing process of his skin which was traumatized by his football tackle.

Case Study Two.

This next case study was done on myself.  I saw the results that Maximus was receiving by using the ointment and chose to use it to treat irritated skin on my eyes.

*Disclaimer-This product is not recommended to use around the eyes or to be ingested.

Day 1

Day 1.

Look closely into the crease of my eyelids.  Both of my eyelids were suffering from acute dermatitis.  They were so irritated that even the skin had abrasions in the creases and caused mild pain on the lids.  I had treated them with an arnica gel and soothing eye cream and neither of those treatments were working.  A whole week had passed and my eyelids were not getting better, only worse.  That is when I chose to use the REAL Honey Ointment and applied it directly onto the irritated skin only.

Day 3

Day 3.

After only two nights of using the ointment on my eyes, not only did the pain go away but the acute dermatitis was gone.  My eyelids were completely healed from their irritation, the inflammation and the tiny abrasions.  With only two night treatments, I could not believe that the ointment was what finally healed them after multiple attempts from different, natural treatments.  It has been a month since I last treated my eyes with the ointment and have not received a reoccurrence of acute dermatitis on my eyelids.

As you can see from both case studies, the REAL Honey Ointment aided in treating both my son and myself.    Only a small amount of ointment was used during each application, leaving three-fourths of the ointment left in the 0.5 ounce container.  Dr. Atif M. Malik states that some of his clients have used his ointment for their dark spots and dermatitis and wonders if possibly it could be beneficial in treating stretch marks and scars.  I can definitely make the claim that it helped to treat hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, accelerated scarring healing and acute dermatitis.  This is truly a medicinal ointment that should be a staple must-have in the medicine cabinet.

REAL Honey Ointment by Dr. Atif M. Malik receives 5.o Stars.

How well do you know your food?  Do you know where the food you eat comes from?  Do you know what feeds the food you are eating?  Since the rise of fast food, food has incrementally become modified through out the years.  According to Michael Pollan from the documentary film, FOOD, INC. he states, “The way we eat has changed more in the last 50 years than in the previous 10,000”.

organic orangesAs a child, growing up in Montana, my father planted a huge garden.  We had watermelon, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries, raspberries, lettuce, sweet peas and corn.  The carrots were a bright orange with a huge headdress of green leaves sprouting from the top and a long string, dangling from the bottom.  They tasted so sweet and full of life.  Eating a carrot from the garden was my favorite snack but eating a carrot from the grocery store was far from my favorite.  The carrots from a grocery store were bigger, dirty-orange  in color, with a small little sprout of green coming from the tip.  A grocery store carrot was dry and anything but sweet.  The only way I could eat a carrot from the store was if it was cooked because eating it raw seemed pointless.

sweetpeasSweet peas was another one of my favorite garden past times.  I would pick the sweet peas off of the stem and after rinsing them off with water, I’d peel open the green covering and eat the peas inside first, counting how many peas were cocooned inside and then I’d finish by eating the outside casing.  The sweet peas were very sweet and they had this distinct clean taste of earth on them.  Everything from my father’s garden was heaven at first bite.  All the fruits and vegetables were small and colorful.

Being young, I noticed the differences of food from my father’s garden to the food we would purchase in the supermarket.  Over the years I have seen the advancement of technology enhancing the food items to these glamorous, over-sized fruits and vegetables and some people I have told me how they thought this beautiful fruit was going to have a great flavor but nine times out ten, they say how disappointed they were when they actually ate it.

Healthy, non-GMO (genetically modified), no pesticides, naturally (organic) grown food takes time to grow and develop.  Think of food as a relationship, the more time it has to grow and develop and weather the storms, the healthier the relationship will be, just like food.  Give the food a good environment, proper sunlight, love and care and it will produce a healthy response of nutrients that our body needs.  Give the food a bad environment, force it to grow in a short amount of time without any natural light and love and it will produce a traumatic response of survival leaving the consumer vulnerable to any harmful components it may have received.

Burgeoning food has gone on long enough and the people that are getting hurt by it, are us.  Every single person that has an innate, human quality of trusting that what is placed on our shelves at the supermarket, that what fast food restaurants, even huge chained restaurants are serving us, is quality, healthy food.  It’s about time we start asking questions before its too late.

Watch an interview with the FOOD, INC. Filmmaker Robert Kenner.  It is an enlightening discussion of where our food is derived.
