Ante Kresic heals from lung cancer with a honey and pine needle syrup.

For this post I will first describe some effective honey protocols and then share the testimonial of Ante Kresic, a man who used a honey protocol to treat his lung cancer.

Cancer cells are “obligate glucose metabolizers.”  They have 10 to 20 times more insulin receptors than normal healthy cells, which allows them to gobble up glucose and use it for their growth and spread.  The following protocols exploit this dependence on glucose by using honey as a “carrier” in order to get cancer killing substances into the cancer cells to kill the microbes that exist within them. says this about using honey for this purpose:  “cancer microbes reside inside of all cancer cells. Honey is one product which can transfer microbe-killing nutrients inside of cancer cells.  While honey by itself has been known to cure cancer, honey combined with another microbe-killing substances such as curcumin should be even more effective.” I have listed all three of the honey protocols below. The first consists of turmeric/curcumin and honey, the second is freshly-ground ginger root and honey, and the third is cinnamon and honey. They are all said to kill the microbes that exist inside of cancer cells.

Protocol 1–  Honey and turmeric: mix 1 tsp of honey with 1 tbsp of freshly ground turmeric root, 1 tsp of  turmeric paste (recipe below), or 2 capsules of Bio-available Curcumin.  For the capsules: open and mix the powder with 1 tsp of raw honey. This works well in a shot glass with a little bit of added liquid.

Protocol 2- Honey and ginger root: Take 1 tsp of  raw organic honey mixed with 1 tbsp of freshly grated ginger root, or with 2 capsules of Ginger Root.  For the capsules: this mixes well when using a shot glass and a little added liquid.

Protocol 3– Honey and cinnamon: Mix 1 tsp honey with 1 tsp cinnamon.  *see the note below about the cinnamon.  This mixes well when using a shot glass and a little added liquid.


  • Take this mixture at least 3 times per day.  This dose can be increased as needed, but do not exceed 6 tsp of honey per day
  • The turmeric and honey combination using the Bio-available Curcumin would be the most potent of the three suggested protocols.
  • You can alternate between the turmeric and ginger by taking them every other day.
  • These 3 protocols can be interchanged, or you can continue on with any one of the combinations individually.

In regards to the quality of the honey that you use:  The honey will act as a carrier to help get the curcumin/ginger/cinnamon into the cells where it is needed.  If you are going to do a honey protocol, then please use a quality honey as well. Raw Organic Honey is unpasteurized and unprocessed so it has all the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients, and other nutritional elements still intact.  It is rich in minerals such as iron, copper, manganese, silicon, chlorine, calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, and magnesium and is a good source of vitamins A,B’s, C, bee pollen and bee propolis.   It is said that the darker the honey, the more nutrients that it contains. Raw Manuka Honey comes from New Zealand and is taken from the bees that pollinate Manuka trees. It is considered to be the queen of honeys and is reputed to have the highest anti-microbial activity of all honey.  It has also been reported that hospitals and clinics in New Zealand and Australia have used this honey to treat MRSA (antibiotic resistant bacteria) that can infect surgical wounds, and has been clinically proven to heal diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.

In regards to the cinnamon:  Look for quality Ceylon Cinnamon which will not be toxic to the liver like standard cinnamon products which contain coumarin.

Recipe for turmeric paste:

  • Mix one part of ground turmeric with two parts spring water in a saucepan.
  • Gently heat the mixture while stirring.
  • As it starts to thicken, you must stir it constantly to prevent scorching.  
  • Store in a glass jar in the fridge where it should stay good for up to 2 – 3 weeks.

Testimonial of using a honey protocol for healing

Ante Kresic, a beekeeper from Croatia, testified before the National Action Plan Committee that he had cured himself of lung cancer with the help of a honey and pine needle syrup that he had concocted himself.

Kresic reports that he was diagnosed with lung cancer back in 2001, at which time his doctors performed surgery to remove part of his lung but then found that further treatments would not be effective for him.  During this same time period, Kresic says that he found out about a local man who made an herbal respiratory syrup for a local Pulmologist (lung specialist), so he went to visit with him to learn more about how it was made.

He says. “When I got home, I had lost weight and I had no strength for anything.”  Then his friend Nikola Zelenovic offered to give him some pure honey and together they went and picked pine needles to make the syrup following the recipe that he had been given.  He began taking the syrup and says that by the third day he was already feeling improvements.  He says.  “I left the hospital in April, and in the summer I was already a completely different man.  When I went to consult with my doctors they could not believe that I was alive, and also they couldn’t believe the results of the examinations that followed.”

Kresic only produced enough syrup for himself, but when it showed such remarkable results he shared the recipe with some friends and says that they reported having good results as well.   He adds.  “People with a similar destiny come to me and I keep telling my story over and over again, the agony I had to go through and the cure that helped me. My recipe helps them, giving them hope.”  Kresic believes that it is his obligation to help others by sharing the simple syrup that he used to cure his cancer.

Ante sells a wide variety of medicinal honeys.

Ante later began his own beekeeping business in 2003 and now sells a wide variety of herbal infused honeys along with the original honey/pine needle syrup that he says cured his cancer.  Currently these products are only available to those living in the Bosnia/Croatia areas but he may be willing to ship them abroad if requested.  He says that people who have used them have had success with lung, brain and prostate cancer, as well as helping with  infertility issues.

Pine needles are very rich in vitamin C, A, an array of B vitamins, along with being a good source of the mineral manganese, and sulfur which is used by the body to detoxify and rebuild tissue.   Pine needles also have anti-mutagenic  qualities, meaning they can help prevent cancer cells from forming.

There are not very many pine needle supplements available, but I did find a Pine Needle Oil Supplement that could be mixed with some raw honey.   You can also make your own pine needle/honey infusions, brew a pine needle tea, or make pine needle tinctures and then mix it together with raw honey as you take the individual servings. Some recipes are posted below.

Most pine needles are safe but there are 3 toxic varieties which should not be used to make these preparations.  They include Ponderosa Pine (Pinus ponderosa) aka yellow pine, Norfolk Island Pine (Araucana heterophylla) aka Australian Pine, or Yew (Taxus).  It is also advised that pregnant women avoid pine needle preparations in general.

Pine Needle Infused Honey

  • Select your pine needles
  • Thoroughly wash and then air dry the pine needles for a couple days to remove any moisture.
  • Finely chop with a coffee and spice grinder.
  • Use 8 tablespoons of finely chopped pine needles per 1 cup of raw honey.
  • Place the chopped needles into your mason jar and cover them with the honey.
  • Stir with a wooden chopstick (no metal) to thoroughly mix.
  • Allow to mixture to infuse for at least up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
  • Take 3 tsp of the mixture per day.

How to Make a Pine Needle Tea

  • Select your pine needles
  • Finely chop the needles until you have about 1 cup.
  • Bring 3 cups of water to a boil, add the needles and then cover the pan and remove from heat.  Allow this to steep for 20 minutes.
  • Strain out the needles as you pour into your cup and store the remainder in the refrigerator.
  • Add the raw honey and drink this tea a couple of times per day.
  • I’ve tried this a couple of times and find it tastes best with added cinnamon.

How to Make a Pine Needle Tincture

  • Select your pine needles.
  • Finely chop the needles or use a coffee and spice grinder.
  • Put them into a clean qt sized full mason jar, filling to 3/4 full with the needles.
  • Cover to the top with 80- 100 proof vodka.
  • Set in a cool dark place such as kitchen pantry
  • Shake the jar several times per week.
  • In 8 weeks you will have a strong tincture.
  • 25-50  drops can be added to warm water with added honey, taken 3 times per day.
