Turmeric Cold and Cough
|Turmeric as remedy|
For treating cough and allergy, a teaspoon of turmeric powder should be mixed in a cup of milk and one pinch each of caraway seeds, pepper, cinnamon, and dry ginger added to it. Then a cup of water should be added and mixture boiled on a slow fire until the whole water is evaporated. This should be strained and taken daily before bedtime after adding some hone. This treatment should be continued for seven days.
Turmeric powder in combination with caraway seeds or bishops weed is useful in colds in infants and children. A teaspoon of turmeric powder and a quarter teaspoon of caraway seeds or bishop's weed should be added to boiling water and the water should then be allowed to cool. About 30 mL of this decoction, sweetened with hone, should be given thrice a day in treating this condition.
