We mostly associate onions with crying our eyes out or cooking a nice meal, which is logical, since we tend to use onions in our food. But did you know you can use onions for other things as well?
Medical science has established that there are over 7,000 nerves in your foot that are in contact with your entire body. That’s why putting an onion in your sock can do wonders for more than just your feet. Once you’ve placed the onion in your sock, it will cleanse your entire body. It will suck the bacteria and germs out of your body, and because the skin on your feet is very thin, the good bacteria and chemicals are absorbed in your blood quicker. That way, the onion also cleanses your blood. And all that while you’re sleeping!
Apparently, putting an onion in your sock before going to bed can help you get rid of a cold much quicker. Onions will help you feel better because of their amazing healing properties. Onions are known for absorbing smells and improving air quality. By putting an onion in your sock before you go to sleep, bacteria will be absorbed by the onion and your blood will be cleansed. It is important to use organic onions that haven’t been treated with chemicals.
For this trick, it is necessary to use biological, non sprayed onions. If you don’t, the damaging chemicals will make it into your blood and that’s the opposite of what you want to achieve. Dr Lauren Feder, homeopathic doctor in Los Angeles, USA, confirms the medicinal function of onions. The trick is said to help against colds, bladder infections, earaches and toothaches, among other things. Especially in China, the use of onions in medicine has been very popular for a long time. It’s definitely worth a try! So, cut an onion in half, and put it in your sock against your heel before going to bed. It might be a good idea to scrub your feet a little extra in the morning, though…
Who knew an onion could do this much for your health!
