Q.

natural remedy

I saw this natural remedy from the internet; "Mix 1 tablespoon of organic turmeric powder with 100g honey in a glass jar. Take ½ tablespoon of this remedy every hour for the first day. On the second day, take the same dose, but every two hours. And on the third day, take it three times a day. Preferably melt the mixture in your mouth and don’t swallow it straight away. You can also drink it in your tea" 1.Can this be given to kids, seven year old? 2. If so, do I use the same measurement for the kid? 3.Ca I give it to a child for as long time as I want?

Hi there
I know that turmeric and honey have natural healing properties, so I do not think it can do any harm, but I am just a bit concerned about the amount of sugar (in the form of honey). I would try this three times a day, for a seven year old, rather than suggested above. Bear in mind that this is just a suggestion and there is no proof to base any of these suggestions on. If your child is ill and feverish and you cannot bring the fever down, rather take him/her to the doctor. Good luck.
