This will be a quick post to find out if any of my fellow readers have ever been given some weird Asian remedy to fix their sickness.
A while back I had a pretty bad fever including really bad stomach pains and headaches.
Rabindra forced me to drink a glass of water mixed with a teaspoon of turmeric and salt.
It was safe to say this was the most revolting thing I have ever tasted!!!!!!
Yes, I love turmeric in food but with water and salt- it’s a complete no-no.
I couldn’t swallow it and he was telling me that if I wanted to get better, I had to drink it. It’s something his mum used to give him if he was sick.
Have you ever tried the turmeric-salt-water drink? Ewww
Another thing Rabindra told me to try one time was a product called Sancho.
It’s apparently made out of special oils/herbs from the Himalayas and meant to treat colds, stomach ache, bad breath and insect bites.
Even though the smell is massively intense, I was more than willing to try it since I didn’t have to swallow it. You can swallow it or apply it to your nose or forehead.
Sancho isn’t too bad but I haven’t seen any similar equivalent here in Australia.
So, have you tried any weird (or wonderful) remedies from Nepal, India or anywhere else in the world? What did you think of them? Did they work?
