Regardless of where you were raised, if you are of Indian descent then its highly likely your grandmothers and/or moms have publicized the benefits of Haldi Doodh, or as non-Indians refer to it as “Golden Milk”. But is it really that healthy?

Personally, my mom never really pushed the concoction, maybe because she knew it would be wasted on my former adolescent self. But she did always talk about how growing up haldi was known for its many therapies from skincare to joint pain. She also mentioned that whenever she was sick with a cold, haldi doodh was the only thing that seemed to help. Much like my mom, there is an entire culture and civilization that swears by the therapeutic affects of turmeric but how much do we really know about this “superfood”?


Diwali (also know as Deepavali) is the Hindu “festival of lights” celebrated based on the lunar calendar in October/November every year and is an official holiday in India, Pakistan, Fiji, Guyana, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname, and Trinidad & Tobago. The festival, celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists, involves poojas (prayers) in which devotees light diyas (candles), lamps and even fireworks to celebrate and recognize goodness, knowledge, and hope over evil, ignorance and despair.
