Have you ever kept a sliced onion near you to prevent a cold? If not here’s a new product just for you!
Everyone is surprised, and they will laugh themselves, when they hear about this trick for the first time. They are also surprised when they learn that it actually works.
The success of this treatment is due to the cleansing effect the onion has on the air, which makes it more breathable. So, when you have a persistent cough, this vegetable will work almost miraculously.
The only downside is the smell that fills the room. To neutralize the odor, there are an endless variety of natural and chemical air purifiers you can use.
Onions have extraordinary properties, which explains their recognized position in traditional medicine. Each culture has recipes with them as the main ingredient.
Today we would like to take this opportunity to explain the benefits of sleeping with onions on your feet.
Why sleep with onions on your feet?
The feet are largely forgotten when it comes to our health. Usually we only take care of them when they hurt or tingle due to circulatory problems.
This causes us to forget that there is a huge amount of nerve endings in the soles of the feet that are associated with vital organs.
These connection points are called meridians. They correspond to acupuncture points. They contain such great electrical potential that when stimulated, they provide access to the rest of the body.
Therefore, by placing slices of onion on the soles of our feet, we will transfer all the good properties (cleansing, antiseptic…) directly to our intestines to keep them in shape.
Benefits of sleeping with onions on your feet
Let’s take a look at some of the many benefits of this treatment:
1. Say goodbye to infection
Onions are a natural antibiotic. By placing them on the soles of your feet, you will carry this benefit to all areas of the body that are affected by infection.
However, this does not mean that they are a substitute for antibiotics that you get from your doctor, but they will help make your treatment more effective and act faster.
2. Improves the removal of toxins
Toxins are residues in the blood that damage our health when they accumulate. The phosphoric acid in onions acts as a magnet for toxic substances, helping the body to eliminate them more easily.
By sleeping with onions on your feet regularly, you will improve your health in the long run.
3. Hydrate your body
Did you know that onions are composed of 90% water? If we look at acupuncture points, the electrical energy in the meridians distributes all the water that the body needs to reach optimal levels.
Because of this, we recommend sleeping with a slice of onion on your feet for those who find it difficult to drink enough water during the day, either because of habits or because of work.
4. Strengthen your immune system
Onions are a rich source of vitamins E and C, which are essential for maintaining the body’s defenses. In addition , these vitamins are good antioxidants, which means that they slow down the cellular aging process.
Therefore, you get an anti-aging treatment without surgery or chemicals.
How to sleep with onions on your feet
- Although there are many different varieties of onions, regular onions or red onions are best for this trick. Choose the type that is easiest for you to find.
- Cut it into slices and place them on the underside of each foot, so that the slice is where the meridians we want to stimulate are.
- Cover the onion slices with a pair of socks to hold them in place, and go to sleep!
As we mentioned earlier, the odor left on the skin is the worst part of the treatment. To remove it, we recommend that you rub something made of stainless steel over your feet.
While it may seem incredible, this is a foolproof way to get rid of this unpleasant odor.
If you notice the smell in the bedroom, make an infusion of citrus and cloves. Place it on the bedside table or in a drawer, and little by little the smell will disappear.
There are also sprays to remove unpleasant odors. Both of these methods will work, but the first is more sustainable.
This trick is a guarantee of sure success. You can do it once a week as a way to recover energy after a long week at work. However, we recommend doing it every night.
It has no side effects. Just benefits.
