Home Remedies from south India: Immunity

This is a continuation of the series which started with Hair Care. The other posts covered Colds, Coughs, Foot problems, Head aches, and Skin care among other topics. The information in this series is the knowledge of my grandmother, which I documented as part of a project on medicinal plants and home remedies.

  1. Saa theertham (water used to preserve old cooked rice overnight) with Vendayam (fenugreek) and Nallennai (sesame oil) with half a teaspoon of salt is good for cooling stomach aches and general health and immunity. This is also referred to as Neeraharam.
  2. Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.
