There are several old wives’ stories that sound too good to be true (and, of course, insane!). They make no logical sense, but they still function!
And this post will discuss something similar – onion in the sock!
People swear by it, believe me! So, let me tell you about the onion and sock story!
Were you aware that the bottoms of your feet provide direct access to all of your body’s internal organs? These access points are known as meridians in Chinese medicine, and they form the paths to each organ in the body.
There has long been debate about the existence of meridians, but those familiar with Chinese medicine understand that the meridian system is inextricably linked to our neurological system.
According to experts, there are around 7,000 meridians at the bottom of our feet that directly connect to various organs! Do you believe it?
The diagram below depicts the meridians and their sites of contact with the organs and systems of the body.
These meridians function as powerful electric circuits throughout the body, but they are frequently dormant because we cover our feet with footwear. It is critical to stimulate these meridians in order for our bodies to function properly.
It is always encouraged to go barefoot wherever and whenever possible to stimulate the bottom of our feet and ground ourselves with the earth’s negative ion field!
Wearing an onion slice inside your socks (at the bottom of your feet) to bed is one of the coolest methods to stimulate these meridians.
You Can Do It This Way:
Cut an onion (red or white) into thin, flat slices (make sure it’s organic to avoid pesticide side effects like fungal infections).
Put the onion slice in your socks (under your foot, like a platform) and go to bed as usual.
The medicinal components of the onions will be absorbed by the feet while you sleep, which will aid in stimulating the meridians.
Onions are recognised for their magical healing properties and are used as a natural cure for a variety of diseases. They are also known as natural air purifiers, and when applied directly to the skin, they have the ability to eliminate bacteria and kill pathogens. Onions include phosphoric acid (the component that irritates our eyes when we cut onions), which aids in the purification of the blood when it enters the blood vessels.
You have nothing to lose by trying onion and sock therapy! It has a variety of advantages. They are as follows:
- Purification of the blood.
- Germ and bacterium removal
- Toxins and pollutants are removed from the feet, and they smell nicer (believe it or not, it works!)
- Fever symptoms such as colds and flu are relieved.
However, reusing the same onion slice is not advised. So be cautious about that.
Who knew that something so easy and cheap could be so helpful to our health?
If you are still unconvinced, we understand. I was as well until I tried it! It is not, as you might think, a pile of nonsense. You’ve already finished reading this article. Why not just give it a shot? What have you got to lose? Humor the old Chinese medicinal onion in the sock method by sleeping with an onion slice in your socks. The worst-case scenario is that it does not function. The best that might happen is that you would wake up healthy every day!
