Home Remedies: This Haldi Doodh Recipe Can Help You Fight Ailments Related to Seasonal Changes


Nature is in transition mode between cold winters and a very soothing spring season. While the drastic change in season gives us respite from the brain-macerating cold, it also brings several seasonal illnesses including cold flu, fever, and chicken pox. Therefore, experts recommend taking more care of our health during this time of year to boost immunity and reduce the risk of severity. According to consultant nutritionist Rupali Datta, maintaining a healthy diet is one of the first steps we can take to boost immunity naturally. And to speed up the process, she suggests including certain foods (in our daily diet) that contain immunity-boosting properties. One such amazing food ingredient is turmeric.

Health Benefits of Turmeric: Why Include Haldi in Our Seasonal Change Diet:

1. Helps Fight Inflammation:

Turmeric includes a compound called curcumin which is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These factors help us to detoxify and prevent free radical damage in our body.

2. Prevent colds and flu:

Turmeric is also enriched with antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral properties, which help boost immunity and prevent against colds, flu and seasonal illnesses.

3. Heals Body Aches:

The change of season often leads to muscle and joint pain. The curcumin in turmeric has anti-inflammatory effects that could help treat joint and bone problems and relieve pain.

4. Promote Gut Health:

Shilpa Arora emphasizes, “A healthy gut is a pathway to good health.” And to maintain a healthy gut, she suggests including turmeric in our daily diet. Due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is known to aid in healthy digestion.
