Doctors aren’t really sure why turmeric and honey are such powerful forces in the antibiotic world. Both of these items have their own individual healing properties that naturally help aid the human body, although conventional antibiotics are usually sought-after more than these natural remedies.

Several researchers and studies have found that honey has the power to destroy any pathogen or bacteria it comes into contact with. Turmeric, on the other hand, is jam-packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, and antibacterial properties, which helps with a variety of human ailments.

Using honey as an intermediate treatment could also prolong the life of antibiotics.”

Carter then goes on to list the health benefits of turmeric, as stated previously.
