This home remedy for cough and cold increases immunity and fights infections.
- 1 tablespoon of Honey*
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
- 10 drops of fresh ginger juice or 1/4tsp ginger powder
Mix a large batch of this up, keep it in a glass jar ready for use.
Dosage: Lick 1tsp 2-3x a day or when needed.
*Honey should be unheated (not above body temperature). Ensure the honey you buy is extracted this way. Most honey in the supermarkets, even health food stores (organic included!) will be extracted at temperatures higher than 37 degrees. I suggest going to your local farmers market and speaking to the apiarist.
