Healing Power of Onions: Onions Can Absorb Bacteria, Viruses and Flu

Onions are one of those foods that you either love or hate. Many people routinely say “hold the onions” when ordering meals at restaurants while other people happily add a double load to their pizza, sandwiches, and casseroles. This is the food that can make you cry on the happiest day of your life, but it’s also quite powerful regarding its absorbency.

How to Treat Your Feet with Onion
Slice thick pieces of a large onion for each of your feet. You can’t walk around with onion in your socks, so this treatment is designed for overnight use. You can even do it during a long nap if you don’t want to do it all night. I typically wrap the sliced onions using a cling wrap so that the juices won’t absorb on my socks.

After wrapping the onions, you can wear socks and lay down. The onions will stay in place better if you use two tight-fitting socks (optional).

The onions will do their magic while you catch some Zs, and you’ll wake up feeling refreshed.

This is an old-school method of relieving flu and cold symptoms, but according to many people, it completely works! The next time you are feeling under the weather, give this a shot. It can’t hurt!
