Can you say if it could local honey really help pollen allergies?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

Most honey especially if processed does not have pollen in it.
Raw honey does have pollen and bee parts but the pollen isn't necessarily the same as the pollen that causes allergy symptoms. Also stomach acid and digestive enzymes would break down the pollen before it could stimulate the immune system.
