I’ve already written about the wonderfully tasty and healthy Turmeric Golden Milk to treat many ailments. Today, I’d like to share with you another natural turmeric remedy.

Turmeric Golden Honey is considered the strongest antibiotic certified by Ayurveda. The blend of raw honey and turmeric has a very powerful healing potential. It can be used for bacterial and viral infections, as an anti-inflammatory that eases seasonal allergies, and as a general immune booster.


Unlike artificially synthesized drugs, this natural mix comes with no side effects, promotes the beneficial gut flora, and improves digestion.

A research published in July 2010 in FASEB Journal explains how honey kills bacteria. It shows that bees make a certain protein called defensin-1 that they add to the honey. This protein could one day be used to develop new drugs that could combat antibiotic-resistant infections.

Turmeric antimicrobial potential to kill bacteria and viruses have been shown on animal and test-tube experiments, while human studies are still in the very early stages. Using honey, and not just for eating, is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health which will guide you how to take positive steps to improve your wellness and overall health.

Read on to find out how to make the Golden Honey mixture, how to take it, and the things to look out for. Please remember that ingesting honey should be avoided for children who are under 1 year old.


  • 100 grams (3.5 oz) raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder
  • A pinch of black pepper (to optimize turmeric absorption and bio-availability – see more details here)

For some extra kick and additional health benefits you can also add:

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoon unfiltered raw apple cider vinegar


Add the turmeric powder and the black pepper to the honey and mix well until smooth. If you’re also using lemon zest and apple cider vinegar, add them as well. Put the mixture in a (preferably) glass, air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to two weeks (don’t consume it if it develops a metallic taste).

Instructions for use:

The amount you take depends on your needs and health problems.

  • For general immune support and seasonal allergies, take 1 tablespoon daily.
  • If you’re getting over a cold or flu, take half a teaspoon every hour on the first day of your treatment. On the second day, take half a teaspoon every 2 hours. On the third day, half a teaspoon three times a day will suffice. You can find more natural ways to stay free from cold & flu here.
  • If you’re treating a respiratory condition (asthma, bronchitis, lung problems), it has been recommended to eat half a teaspoon three times a day.

You should keep Golden Honey in your mouth until it’s completely dissolved.



The blend can also be used as a toast topping. Spread a generous helping of Golden Honey over your whole grain toast and enjoy for breakfast.

Or, add it to your green smoothie.


You can also use the mixture to make tea (or a warm tonic). The brew will be very tasty if you also add lemon. Just mix one tablespoon of Golden Honey with a cup of hot water and enjoy during the day or in the evening.

According to the Indo-Tibetan medicine, turmeric should be taken at different times depending on your health complaint:

  • Before eating is best for throat and lungs.
  • With food is best for the digestive system.
  • After food is best for the colon and kidneys.


Turmeric should not be taken by people who suffer from gallbladder problems. The spice causes contraction of the gallbladder muscles. It also lowers blood pressure and blood sugar levels. This is generally seen as a positive effect, but if you already have low blood pressure or you have issues with your blood sugar levels, consult your doctor first. See more groups that should avoid or limit turmeric consumption in my article turmeric should be avoided by these people.

    I like all your health tips so helpful especially Honey co’z I love to use honey, lemon and other herbal treatment, its so useful, Thanks a lot to all your health tips….

  2. HikingDiva says:

    I slice several lemons, grate turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, little bit of black pepper and top with honey in a jar. Let it marinate for a few days, the lemon juice makes the honey less thick and then have a tablespoons 2 daily. As the level drops, I will add the exposed lemon/ginger/turmeric to warm tea.

    If I actually got a cold, I would increase the consumption..

    Tumeric is amazing! I am raising my grand daughter. She has always suffered from colds, runny nose, sore throat and cough. Especially a runny nose all the time. Since I started giving her a little mixture that I kind of made up myself of coconut oil, tumeric, small amount of red pepper and a generous amount of honey in a small medicine cup about 3 times a week she has had none of the above since. I heat the mixture and then add the honey after to cool it down and she loves it. I am a BELEIVER in Tumeric. It burns a little going down so I give her some juice or tea to chase it.

  7. Rachel says:

    Hi, thank you so much for your posts. I have been looking for natural turmeric uses for a while now.
    What is consuming after food specifically? 20 mins More less, after eating a snack or big meal?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Rachel, there are no strict guidelines, but 20 min. more or less is a reasonable time. A normal meal rather than a snack is preferable.

  8. Rachel says:

    Me again with 2 extra questions. 1 does the quality of the turmeric affect the healing properties? Is simply organic a good brand? No need to answer if this question can make you uncomfortable I realize brand is a loaded question. 2 how long does turmeric stay good in the cabinet? Is there a preferable way to store the powder?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Rachel, the freshness of turmeric is important although when you buy powdered turmeric you often don’t really know how fresh it is. Try to select organically grown turmeric – not sure about brands as they are different in every country. Turmeric powder should kept in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dark and dry place. Fresh turmeric rhizome should be kept in the refrigerator.

  9. Becca says:

    Where can I find tumeric powder?is it with the other spices like garlic powder?

  10. christian muehlemann says:

    This mixture is very good, but also you can put some ginger, tincture of propolis or whole garlic. I take every day some of those mixture to prevent!
