For the honey question, yes it can help you, but only if the honey is raw & unfiltered.  The idea is that bees are visiting & collecting pollen from the plants in your area that you're allergic to, so eating their honey gives you a... (more)

Creatine is fine, but follow the correct dose and make sure that you cycle it.   Prolonged use can affect your liver and kidneys

If you're OK with dairy there's always butter and ghee.  Seek out butter from pastured dairy sources to maximize Omega 3's.  Butter has some MCT's but not in the same concentrations as coconut oil.
