MEDICINAL IMPORTANCE OF TURMERIC: Treatment of cough, coryza (common cold), infection & beauty tip.



Turmeric is one of the top rated herbaceous plant with very high medicinal value. Turmeric belongs to a family called zingiberaceae (to which even ginger is associated). Root of the turmeric is very unique and imparts characteristic yellow colour and is a very good example for natural dye. Leaves of turmeric is also of medicinal importance but it is not as efficient as root.


Treatment of cough:

Add the turmeric powder (which should be prepared from "dried" and well grown roots) boiling milk (not too much hot) and mix thoroughly. Drink this turmeric-milk with "interest".
This is very much helpful to reduce the inflammatory response ( inflammation due to whooping cough). Hence it is best medication for cough.


Treatment of coryza or common cold:

Inhale the fresh turmeric powder for every two hours; inhale it to such an extent that the powder should reach deep into the nose. 
Five minutes after inhaling, it'll trigger sneezing. This is a clear indication that medicine is on it's way to fight against pathogen. During sneezing process excess mucous will be thrown out as a result nostrils will become free & relaxed to breath normally.

To fight against infection:

Turmeric have a unique chemical component called curcuminoid (an alkaloid); a dicyclic compound which is very much effective to fight against pathogens. Thus taking the fragrance of turmeric will increase the immune power and is also helpful to fight against infection. 

Beauty tip:

1. Use turmeric powder and mix thoroughly with curd. use very thick curd so the it'll be easy to get a semi solid paste. Then apply this paste on the face for about 3-4 coats. Wait for one hour and allow it to dry. Then wash the face with cold water (not ice cold) gently and use pea flour for further washing.
Frequent practice of this method will help to remove unwanted scars on the face.
2. Take fragile and well grown root of the turmeric and extract the paste out it by using granite slab. Use water or milk for this process. As mentioned above use the paste to apply on the face. This will also helps to develop glowing face with no side effects..!!!

NOTE: Similar to sandalwood, turmeric is a very good natural hair removing agent. So use turmeric powder regularly to remove unwanted hair on the face.
