Before the discovery of antibiotics, herbs and spices with antimicrobial properties were used for treating infections. One such popular natural antibiotic that has been used for centuries by Ayurvedic physicians in India is the golden honey mixture. The two main ingredients in the golden honey mixture are turmeric and honey.
Turmeric is a wonder herb. It is blessed with a large number of medicinal properties. It has powerful antimicrobial property and helps in strengthening the immune system. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric help in alleviating the symptoms and provide fast relief from infections.
Honey is valued for its antimicrobial property. It acts as an expectorant and helps in expelling the mucus from the lungs that congests the airways. The golden honey mixture is most effective in treating respiratory infections. Unlike antibiotic medications they are free from side effects and you can take this natural antibiotic as long as you want.
