Golden Milk- The Cure to Just About Everything.

I feel very blessed to come from a family where prevention and natural healing has always been important. My parents have always worked to heal minor conditions such as colds and coughs, and even more serious things like diabetes, naturally. This mind set comes from the fact that they grew up in India and did not have access to the kind of health care they do now. When someone got sick, they would call a Hakim or Vaadh to the village that would heal a patient through various plants.

try a little nutmeg in your haldi milk to amp up the taste

Last night, I had an amazing experience with Haldi (tumeric) milk. I have been tormented by   this horrible cough, which has bothered me to no end. I have tried gargling with salt water, hot water with honey and lemon, various teas, licorice root powder with honey, every remedy you can imagine and nothing seemed to work. Completely frustrated with this cough, I had decided to give the “Golden Milk” a try, the only natural   remedy I had not tried yet.

Haldi Milk is an age-old remedy used to heal sore throats and colds , to be honest it's thought to cure just about anything and everything.... I drank half a cup of Haldi milk before bed time,   got up in the morning to less irritation in my throat   than I have had in the last few weeks. Yes, It's a miracle and I wish I had tried this earlier!

Ingredients:

  • 1/8  tsp Turmeric
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 8 oz Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Oil

  • Place water and turmeric in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil, stirring to a paste for 8 minutes.
  • Place milk and almond oil in a separate saucepan and heat until the milk just comes to a boil, then remove from heat.

  • Add honey or maple syrup to taste.

Not only can Haldi clear a sore throat and cough, Ayurveda practitioners often recommended Tumeric for many conditions including, arthritis, detoxification of the liver, allergy fighting, balancing cholesterol, and diabetes. I truly believe in the benefits and healing properties of Tumeric, but make sure you do your own research or talk to an ayurvedic practitioner before trying it for yourself.

May you be healthy and happy.
