Anti-inflammatory medication is used in order
to eliminate excessive inflammation in the body, caused by our immune system as it defends
itself from harmful pathogens. In the case of over-the-counter and prescription
anti-inflammatories, their regular use can be controversial, since some of their components
cause adverse effects when taken over a long period of time. Furthermore, there’s a constant
need for pharmaceutical companies to make their medicines stronger every time, meaning
that their side-effects last longer than ever. However, there is no need to depend only on
industrialized anti-inflammatories. There are natural ingredients that have anti-inflammatory
effects that, because they come from vegetables, don’t cause negative reactions after being
ingested. These natural anti-inflammatories can be used
against common infections, whether they are respiratory or urinary tract infections. Organic honey and turmeric are basically the
only ingredients. The combination of honey and turmeric is a
traditional recipe with anti-inflammatory properties, that promotes the increase of
our bodies’ immunological responses. In order to obtain all of the benefits that
come with this natural anti-inflammatory, all the ingredients must be of the highest
quality, so it is better to use organic ingredients. Here is why this natural combination is so
effective: Honey’s benefits Honey is rich in antioxidants and essential
vitamins. Because of it’s regenerative properties,
bee honey fights against the negative effects of free radicals against the cells, strengthening
the tissue and increasing the number of antibodies. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory effect
is widely known because it helps reduce mucus in the airways. Turmeric’s benefits Turmeric is a very famous spice due to it’s
orange color that improves the taste and appearance of several dishes. Its characteristic color comes from curcumin,
a powerful anti-inflammatory and natural painkiller. Here’s what curcumin can do: It balances
inflammation in our tissue, destroys harmful pathogens, and creates a protective barrier
against the agents that cause infections. We call this treatment made mainly from honey
and turmeric “golden honey”. To maintain a lasting effect, many people
incorporate golden honey into their diets, to strengthen their immune system. However,
it can also be used periodically as a natural anti-inflammatory to treat infections. Here is the recipe: Ingredients:
