You will be surprised to know the wonderful uses of onions.
The change of season is the ideal time for flu to develop and spread. Although it is not a dangerous disease, the flu causes discomfort for sufferers. In mild cases, it causes a runny nose and sneezing. In more severe cases, it causes high fever and cannot do anything.
Many flu remedies are sold in pharmacies, but did you know there is a way to cure the flu with natural ingredients that every home has, dating back to the 16th century and in many countries worldwide? The world has applied it. All you need is onion slices and socks. It sounds stinky and unrelated, but this is an extremely effective way to treat the flu.
We have onions and socks, what should we do? Cut the onion horizontally into thin slices. You can use purple or white onions as long as they are clean and without chemicals or pesticides. Drain the water from the onion, place it under the soles of your feet and put on socks to secure it, preventing the onion from moving.
Note that before wearing “onion socks” on your feet, make sure your whole body is warm, not cold. Use every night until you feel your flu symptoms go away.
It should be used at night because this method only works well when you don’t use your legs to move too much. Remove your socks and wash your feet with clean water the next morning.
Did you know that the soles of human feet have more than 7,000 nerves connecting all body parts? Onions purify the body and kill bacteria thanks to phosphoric acid that easily penetrates the skin and into the blood and knocks down bacteria.
Besides, not only does it help the body get rid of colds and flu, onions also protect the heart, purify the blood, reduce stomach pain, sinusitis, neck pain and ear infections and eliminate unpleasant foot odor. Therefore, even if you don’t have a cold, wearing “onion socks” while sleeping is still a very good health care therapy.
