Tezaswita’s story:

“Missing breakfast has become a common occurrence among the youth today. I too am a serious culprit of breaking the breakfast rule.

During my college days, I never took breakfast seriously, and this led to acidity issues after a few years. Until last year, my relationship with gastritis was quite strong (LOL, not kidding though). Almost every morning, either I would be suffering from acid reflux or bile reflux. Although Antacids and Domperidones kept me going, I realized that I had to find a healthier solution to my problem.

I started having Methi powder (powdered Fenugreek seeds) and Haldi (Turmeric powder) water every morning”.

Here’s Her Recipe:

  • After dinner, I diligently add half a teaspoon of Methi powder and one-fourth teaspoon of homemade or organic Haldi to a glass of lukewarm water.
  • I stir the mixture well.
  • I leave the glass overnight.
  • And I drink this first thing in the morning.

How It Helped Her:

” This remedy has not only cured 90% of my gastric issues but have also helped me lead a healthier lifestyle. While Methi is good for the skin, hair, and weight loss, Haldi has been long known for its antimicrobial properties. But above all, I have started having breakfast too!

If you want to sweeten this Haldi-Methi drink, you may add a teaspoon of honey to it. Enjoy it on an empty stomach!”
