Everyone wants a quick fix when they are sick. Hence the rise of medicine! Not many people enjoy getting a cold, the flu, or any other illness. As soon as we feel the symptoms coming on, we try to think up a way to try to stop it. People will try everything from taking extra vitamin C to over the counter cold and flu medications and many, many remedies in between. But never think of nature and what is available to humans at all!
One such “remedy” that gets passed around social media every cold and flu season is to place a cut onion in the room of the person who is sick. The claim is that onions have the ability to absorb bacteria and viruses and will actually pull the germs out of the sick person.
Some say it is just old wives’ tale. Is it?
But base on personal experience and first hand witness. It does work. Every time someone in my family gets flu or cold, we used onions to get it controlled. onions stop flu and cold from spreading to other hosts. And the flu and cold is gone after 2 days. From my grandparents to my children, we all use onions every time someone contracts a flu or cold! It is free and it is effective!
How To Use Onion to control flu and cold?
To use onions for cold and flu control is simple.
No placing on the sole of your feet. Nothing like that. Just cut an onion in half and put it in places where you mostly spend most of your time. Throw the cut onions after 24 hours and replace with a new one.
If you can, include a freshly cut onion in your salad. But not necessary.
Reminder: Always throw away the onions after 24 hours. DO NOT use it for cooking.
Why Big Pharma and medical society says it does not work?
The big problem why scientific community and big medical corporations, and medical society says it does not work is that, there is no money to be gained from practicing it! Why would they practice it and lose billions of revenues? In the first place, are they going to exchange billions of money they get from medicines and practicing medicine and tell people they don’t have to buy their medicines or go to the hospitals to get cured from a flu? Imagine a world where those billion dollar companies lose business.
During the bubonic plague, cut onions were placed around homes to keep people from contracting the deadly illness. At the time, it was believed that all illnesses were spread through the air. These clouds of disease—or miasmas—were thought to exist when the air smelled bad.
In more recent history, people used the cut onions in the room to protect against the 1918 flu pandemic. In one anecdote, a doctor had his patients place cut onions in their homes and they all stayed healthy while others in the community did not.
Placing an onion in the room may not treat or prevent you from getting a cold. But it will control the flu from spreading and from getting worst. Washing your hands regularly, avoiding crowds during flu season, and taking care of your health by eating healthy, exercising, getting ample sleep can help you stay healthy this cold and flu system. Remember the intention of people. If money is to be gained by releasing information to you, it usually is partially true or totally false!
Onion has always been natures powerful flu and cold controller and it will stay that way as long as the earth exist! It does not harm your immune system, and never does bad to your health.
