Home remedies, especially those used for centuries and passed down from generation to generation, can have strong healing powers.
Take turmeric and honey for example. These ingredients are enough powerful by themselves, but when combined together, they create an elixir that offers numerous health benefits.
It is a well known fact that honey has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties and it is best to use it unprocessed.
For one, honey is an alternative treatment for eczema, wound healing, gastrointestinal problems, heart disease, and diabetes. Some studies suggest that honey also possesses properties that can help fight tumors. It also fights different bacteria, such as strains of Salmonella enterica, E. coli, and Staphylococcus aureus.
The list of the benefits it provides to the human body is endless.
Turmeric is yet another plant that is so versatile that it’s found its way not only in the cuisines of many countries, but also in the cosmetic industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and more.
Among the rest, turmeric contains protective compounds, including curcumin, has anti-oxidant properties that may help the body combat inflammation, can help ease arthritis, can help limit the growth of cancerous cells, protects cells from damage, and reduces the signs of ageing.
Below is a simple yet powerful recipe made with only three ingredients; Honey, turmeric, and some black pepper.
1 teaspoon powdered turmeric
2 tbsp pure honey (raw honey preferred) a pinch freshly ground black pepper
Combine 1 teaspoon turmeric powder and 2 tablespoons honey in a small bowl. Season with freshly ground black pepper to taste. The black pepper boosts the bioavailability of turmeric’s curcumin, helping your body to absorb it more effectively.
Stir the ingredients together thoroughly until they form a smooth paste.
Pour the mixture into an airtight jar or container for storage. To maintain freshness, store in a cool, dry place, ideally the refrigerator.
As a natural antibiotic: Take 1 teaspoon of turmeric honey if you have symptoms of a cold or infection to improve your immune system and reduce inflammation.
As an anti-inflammatory: Apply this combination to irritated skin areas to reduce itching, redness, and swelling.
As a soothing tea: Simply combine a spoonful of turmeric honey with a cup of warm water.
Before consuming this powerful mixture please consult your doctor, especially if you suffer from any allergies found in turmeric and honey.
