22 Mar 2020

One ingrediant on Koh Phangan that is widely available and cheap is Turmeric!

Turmeric has been used for its flavour and healing properties for centuries especially in Ayurvedic medicine. 

Its active ingredient, curcumin, provides powerful antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Turmeric also helps fight inflammation in the body, osteoarthritis, gastritis, microbes, gastric and peptic ulcers, improves the function of the brain and treats Alzheimer’s disease, and helps in the case of countless other health issues.

Here is how to make a homemade natural antibiotic with turmeric:


1 tablespoon of turmeric

100 grams of honey


In a glass jar, mix the ingredient, and stir well.

Take a tablespoon of the remedy on every hour to treat the flu. Do not swallow it immediately, but leave it to melt in the mouth.  On the next day, take the same amount but on every 2 hours, and repeat on the third day, taking it only three times daily.

You can also add it to your tea or milk.
