Onions are delicious. They do always make for some flavourful delights when caramelised, fried or even blanched. But who ever thought that another thing onions are great for, has nothing to do with food?
According to Healthy, Wild And Free, going to bed with slices of an onion secured under your feet with socks is actually a magnificent detoxification tool.
Chinese medicine speaks of powerful access points on our feet known as meridians that connect directly with vital internal organs through the body. Those that understand Chinese medical practices know that the meridian network is closely interrelated with the nervous system.
7,000 nerve endings are present at the bottoms of our feet. They form powerful circuits within the body. That’s why walking barefoot is considered a great way to stimulate meridians and rejuvenate oneself – simple acupuncture, guys! Some even say going nude in the feet is also a great way to ground yourself with the earth’s negative ion field.
Onions have for long been considered as air purifiers – known to absorb and kill germs and harmful bacteria.
And when kept in contact with the bottom of our foot, the purifying chemicals present in a raw onion, enter one’s bloodstream transdermally (through the skin).
All one has to do, is cut up two thin slices of an organic onion (white or red) and place them at the bottom of your each feet. Keep them there using comfortable, breathable socks and go to bed.
The chemicals in the onion will directly interact with the meridians in your feet to purify your blood and rid you of a host of bacteria, germs and pathogens present in your body.
That’s the reason behind the old’ naani ka nuskha of rubbing an onion against your feet when you have a cold or fever! Yep, it really works.
