Turmeric Milk for Resistance and against mild Throat Infection

AilmentMild throat infection.

Quantity: 100 – 125 ml.

IngredientsMilk, turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, honey, black pepper.

Procedure: Pour the milk into a pan and heat over a medium flame. Add 2 pinches of turmeric, 1 split cardamom, a small piece of cinnamon, 1 clove and a pinch of black pepper. Bring to a boil over a low flame. Let it simmer for a minute and then strain. After letting cool for two minutes, add 1 or two teaspoons of honey and mix.

Note 1: Great against  mild infection. Turmeric kills bacteria.

Note 2: Drinking at night is not a problem. In fact during infection, it proves soothing. Doesn’t aggravate phlegm. The pepper, cardamom, clove and cinnamon are all expectorant.

Note 3: During cough and cold, don’t have more than this quantity of milk. In such a condition, have milk only prepared like this, otherwise milk will aggravate the phlegm.

Dosage: For building up the immune system, one could have this milk once a day for a stretch of 2-3 weeks before change of season or in the really cold months.
