If you had a choice between picking a pill that can potentially cause the fairly harmless symptoms you’re currently exhibiting deadly with prolonged use, and a natural mixture that has no side effects, except for rare allergy cases, which one would you choose?
Honey and turmeric mixture is taking the world by storm, as ancient natural remedies become more and more popular in the western world. The popularity of this mixture is not something that should come as a surprise, considering it has been known for centuries that it alleviates the symptoms of common cold, as well as helps with respiratory issues, skin irritations, digestive irregularities, muscle and bone pain, and more.
Making a natural antibiotic is a simple and straight-forward process, and it includes only three ingredients. Here’s how to make it:
- 1 tablespoon of turmeric
- 3.5 ounces of honey
- ½ teaspoon of black pepper
Get a jar, add all three ingredients to it, and mix them well. Keep the mixture stored in your fridge in order to extend the shelf life and prevent it from going bad. As soon as you feel the first symptoms of flu or a cold, or any other inflammatory issue, take half a tablespoon of the remedy every hour for the first day. On day two, taking a tablespoon every two hours is recommended, and reducing the dosage by an hour every day is suggested for as long as you feel the symptoms (shouldn’t be more than three days).
The list of health benefits that regular consumption of turmeric brings is practically endless. Its healing properties were discovered thousands of years ago, and it has been an essential part of Eastern Asian medicine and cuisine ever since. It contains high amounts of antioxidants, which are responsible for preventing and stopping inflammation, which is helpful in multiple scenarios. Here’s what turmeric can help you with:
- Inflammation reduction
- Pain reduction
- Autoimmune disorder treatment
- Cancer prevention
- Depression and stress management
- Digestion improvement
- Sugar processing in diabetics
Honey is known as the most potent natural antibiotic. It is used for treatment and prevention of colds and flu worldwide, and it can help with multiple other health issues, such as:
- Respiratory issues, such as cough
- Weight management
- Wound and burn healing
- Free radical infestation
The pepper found in this remedy is used for its ability to help our body absorb nutrients more efficiently. Piperine, black pepper’s active compound, is responsible for improving honey and turmeric’s bioavailability in drastic margins; by up to 2,000 times.
One thing to keep in mind while preparing this remedy is the quality of the ingredients you use. Get the turmeric from a reputable health store, and not bagged from a local supermarket. When it comes to honey, things can get a little bit complicated. Most supermarket varieties are not pure, as artificial syrups and sweeteners are used in excessive quantities in order to reduce the cost for the producer. When you’re buying honey, make sure you’re getting the raw variety, which posses all of the health benefits listed above.
