Tumeric and MIlk for Your Cold

While some treatments of the common cold are pretty well known, there are some that a lot of people would never think of. Turmeric is great in treating the irritations that are caused by either the first stages of the common cold or the coughing phase of the common cold. All you will need to do is take about half of a teaspoon of turmeric powder and mix it with a glass of warm milk. I know you would think having the milk cold would soothe the irritations of the throat, but it’s actually the opposite. Pour the turmeric powder into a very hot ladle. Then take the milk and pour it into the mixture. Place the mixture over a slow fire to be boiled. The mixture should be taken twice a day. The good thing about cooking it over a slow fire is that you can actually inhale the smoke from the burning turmeric to help with a “nasal” cold.
