Turmeric Home Remedy for Winter Ills

Turmeric is well known for its virtual cornucopia of health benefits. Its high concentration of curcuminoids is anti-inflammatory and can relieve joint pain. Studies have found turmeic to have anti-tumor properties, to be liver-supportive, and to have high antioxidant effects. Turmeric is a commonly used spice in India, giving most curries their distinctive yellow color. A favorite Indian home remedy for winter colds and especially sore throats is to make a turmeric-based drink of warm milk. Cow milk, even pastured and raw, can increase mucus production in some people, so using a nut or seed milk as a base may be a better alternative. To make the soothing remedy, simply heat a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk over medium heat and stir in ½ teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root, 2 black peppercorns and 4 cardamom seeds. Cook the hot mixture for about 5 minutes and remove from the heat. Stir in a teaspoon or two of raw honey or a few drops of vanilla stevia to sweeten, cover and let cool for about 10 minutes. Strain to remove the spices and serve warm.
