Have you ever heard about the “magical” properties of detoxification that onion possesses? Onion soup, onions for cellulite… but wait until you hear what it can do, even without the need to consume it inside your body!
Slicing an onion and putting it in your socks before going to bed is an immunity bomb! Our skin is actually the largest organ on our body.
We must be more careful with the skin hygiene, because it absorbs absolutely everything that we put on it – perfumes, cremes, minerals, cosmetics etc. this process is medically known as transcutaneous absorption.
Based on this, a research showed that a baby’s skin has risen in triglycerides and fatty acids just by rubbing virgin coconut oil directly on it. So, can we absorb the nutrients from onion and enjoy its antibacterial properties without consuming it? Sure we can!
This is a citation from the San Francisco Globe’s newspaper: “ Onions feature a variety of sulfur compounds that have antibacterial activity. …
Furthermore, cutting an onion triggers the release of enzymes that initiate a chemical reaction producing propenesulfenic acid, which in turn decomposes to yield sulphuric acid … sulfuric acid also inhibits the growth of bacteria.”
So, what can putting onions on your feet before going to bed actually help you with?
- Common cold and flu
- High blood pressure
- problems with the immune system
- different gland’s disbalances
- losing your appetite
Ancient ayurvedic medicine, acupressure and acupuncture, foot reflexology… these are all sciences that indirectly studying their field, actually confirm the ability of intense absorption possibilities the skin on our feet has. The points on which the feet are stimulated actually correspond to the energy meridians in our body.
So just slice an onion in a half-inch thick circle, place it on the bottom of your feet and then put socks over it. Do it on both legs and have a good night. Don’t forget to shower in the morning, though!Sources: https://www.healthline.com/ https://www.stylecraze.com/
