BABUJI’S NATURAL REMEDIES
During his lifetime, BABUJI shared a wealth of knowledge to his associates about the simple natural remedies that he learned and also discovered during his life in northern India. In this series we will be sharing some of these, starting with his remedies for tonsillitis.1
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp cow ghee
2 tsp chuna paste (also
known as slaked lime and calcium hydroxide)
2 tsp honey
Mix the ground ginger, ground turmeric, ground pepper, and cow ghee together and take orally before going to sleep. After taking this mixture, no water should be taken.
External application: Apply chuna paste around the neck once a day for up to 40 days. Chuna is readily available in India as a thick paste in small containers. Open the container and immediately add the chuna and honey together in a small bowl and mix to remove the lumps. Then straight away apply the mixture all over the throat. It will dry quickly and can then be washed off.
N.B. Care must be taken not to get it in the eyes, as it can cause harm to the cornea.
