Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent. It is also a natural liver detoxifier. It is a natural painkiller and COX-2 inhibitor. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to die. I remember my aunt giving turmeric with warm water to her children when they travel. I believe turmeric helps preventing sore throats to some extent.
Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and is a powerful natural painkiller. Ginger tea has long been used as a natural heartburn remedy. Helps fight cold, cough and flu naturally.
