—-

Boil milk with half a teaspoon of turmeric powder or a 1-inch piece of fresh turmeric for 10-15 minutes, and voila!

1. Treats colds and coughs

Turmeric is loaded with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that help battle infection as well as the symptoms of a cough or cold. It is especially effective against dry coughs.

2. Detoxifies and purifies your body

This potent spice has been used as a blood purifier in Ayurvedic medicines for centuries. It improves blood circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system, which is the body’s natural drainage mechanism. It also helps your liver detoxify the rest of your body.

3. Soothes arthritis and joint pain

Turmeric’s anti-inflammatory properties have other benefits as well, among which a major one is the ability to soothe the pain, swelling and inflammation associated with arthritis. This drink strengthens your bones and joints, and improves flexibility as well.

4. Relieves headaches and congestion

Turmeric is rich in antioxidants as well as several nutrients, so it works like a natural painkiller against headaches, especially those caused by congestion.

5. Boosts immunity and fights diseases

The antiviral properties of this spice boost your natural immunity and prevent the multiplication of viruses, thereby protecting you against infections like hepatitis. Research also suggests that turmeric slows down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, and even reduces your risk of getting cancer.

6. Enables sleep

Drinking a warm glass of this concoction an hour before bed can help you get much better sleep. Milk contains serotonin and melatonin, which are brain chemicals that play an important role in your sleep cycle. Turmeric reduces stress and relaxes your body.

7. Reduces menstrual cramps

Ladies, drinking a glass of milk with turmeric every day can reduce your cramps, as turmeric has antispasmodic properties as well as several vital nutrients.

8. Makes your skin glow

The antioxidants in turmeric fight the free radicals that cause not only disease but ageing as well, keeping your skin young and healthy.

9. Speeds up weight loss

The compounds in turmeric help your body break down fat, thereby helping you lose weight.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
