Résumé

Depuis la nuit des temps, le miel a servi dans la cicatrisation de plaies plus ou moins infectées. Depuis la démonstration des effets thérapeutique du miel de Manuka obtenu à partir de Leptospermum scoparium, notre intérêt doit se porter sur cet élément thérapeutique naturel. Le miel, substance complexe, agit par des effets physicochimiques et permet de soigner les plaies surinfectées par du staphylocoque résistant aux antibiotiques.

The discovery of the therapeutic effect of Manuka honey, produced from Leptospermum scoparium, means we must take a serious interest in this natural therapy. Honey is a complex substance whose physiochemical action can treat wounds infected by antibiotic resistant staphylococci.
