  • 1⁄2 teaspoon (1⁄4 teaspoon for kids younger than 6) turmeric
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon honey


  • Combine warm milk and turmeric in a mug and add honey. Find more recipes and learn about the myriad health benefits of this herb in The Wonders of Turmeric.

Lance Roehrig, a Denver clinical Ayurvedic specialist, has found this time-honored recipe effective at curbing the common cold when taken at the first sniffle. As a preventive, he and his children drink a nightly glass all through the winter. Once a cold sets in, he recommends drinking the milk recipe at night and using water rather than milk during the day.

Note: Curcumin doesn’t dissolve into water. Milk (as well as most Indian dishes) contains fat, which increases intestinal absorption of curcumin.
