    This is the second day I have tried turmeric milk before sleep.

    Heard that it has calming effects, and improves one's health.

    First night: Had a teaspoon of turmeric with a teaspoon of honey, mixed in 6oz of milk. That stuff was bitter!!!

    Second night: Had 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric with 2 tablespoons of honey, mixed in 6oz of milk. That stuff was so sweet, I thought I'd get diabetes!!!!!!!!

    Tonight, will halve the amount of honey and add some other spices, perhaps chopped ginger.

    One thing I noticed, this turmeric milk helped me to sleep easily. Usually, I wake up if someone drops a pin in another room, but last night, there was a Mariachi Band playing in my living room, and I was able to ignore it and sleep relatively quickly ;-)

    Just wanted to say thank goodness for Turmeric!

    Hai Z,

    Turmeric has medicinal value. Your cold and cough will go off immediately.
    You had a nice sleep and shared this with us and i am able to sense the
    turmeric fragrance.

    And it is so tasty when you put just the right amount of Honey. Last night, I halved the amount of Honey and added chopped ginger - an absolute delight!!!

    Hi zzzz,
    A very good reminder about the age old traditional food + medicine..which is consumed almost everyday....along with other usage.....yet another reason to be a proud Indian...

    My grandma's recipe....
    Boil milk+turmeric+crushed pepper and add sugar/brown sugar and have it at night...it relieves cough and throat discomfort...
    "Usually, I wake up if someone drops a pin in another room, but last night, there was a Mariachi Band playing in my living room, and I was able to ignore it and sleep relatively quickly [​IMG].."....that is a good one......:thumbsup
