Onion Therapy - Does it really work?

Monday, February 02, 2015

I have always been fascinated with homeopathic, natural things.............

Recently, I heard that onions absorb toxins...........and that if someone is sick (cough, cold, flu) to halve an onion and leave it out in the sick person's room and that the onion absorbs the illness.

Has anyone ever experienced this?

I have also heard of Onion Socks where you slice an onion and put it inside your sock before bed to pull out toxins from your body.

Anyone interested in trying these and just letting me know your results?

I too, am going to try it but I don't want my baseline to be just based on me.

    What centuries of grandmothers have instinctively known is now being confirmed by everyone from modern scientists to naturopathic doctors. Onions may have the ability to ward off and relieve symptoms of the common flu. And in a world where, according to the CDC, many Americans get the seasonal flu every year, the simple method of boiling onions into a drinkable broth may be a good practice to return to. This was a small excerpt from when I googled this topic, is onions a medicinal option? I think a lot of the old remedies really do work!

    Interesting! My friend just posted about "Onion Tea" when you're sick... and my mom commented that she had read that you shouldn't leave a cut onion around because it will absorb bacterias... so there's probably something to it!
