I know we're to avoid honey on SBD, but I have to be honest and confess that I do use it in my tea on occasion, and I don't think I've had any negative reactions from it. I also swear by taking a spoonful of local raw, unfiltered honey every day, starting in early March, to help prevent seasonal allergies. I wouldn't advise it for everyone, but it works for me.
heating shouldn't negate the effects. You are inoculating yourself to local pollens.
I have trouble with all liquid sweeteners so don't use much agave or honey. I do use honey when I have a nasty cough though, in fresh ginger and lemon tea. I'd rather do that than take meds and it works better. So far I haven't had problems if I really control the amount. I use. Obviously watch for cravings
