There are a number of old wives’ tales that seem too good to be true (and crazy, of course!). They don’t make any logical sense, but somehow they still work!
And this post is going to talk about something similar – trust me, people do swear by it!
So let me present to you the onion and sock tale! Wondering how it can even be beneficial to you? Then go ahead and read this post!
Were you aware of the fact that the bottom areas of your feet have direct access points to all the internal organs in your body? As per Chinese medicine terminology, these access points are known as meridians, and they form the pathways to each organ in the body.
There has been an age old controversy regarding the existence of meridians, but those who are well versed with the Chinese medicine know that the meridian system is very closely related to our body’s nervous system.
Experts say that there are about 7,000 meridians at the bottom of our feet that directly link to different organs! Can you believe that?
The image below clearly represents the meridians and their connection points with the organs and systems within the body.
These meridians act as important electric circuits within the body, but are frequently dormant as we substantially cover our bases with footwear. Stimulating these meridians is veritably important for our body to serve healthily.
To stimulate the bottom of our bases and to base ourselves with the earth’s negative ion field, it’s always recommended to walk barefoot wherever and whenever you can!
.One of the coolest ways to stimulate these meridians is to put an onion slice inside your socks (at the bottom of your bases) and wear them to bed.
Here’s How You Can Do It:
- Take an onion (red or white) and cut it into thin and flat slices (make sure it’s an organic onion to avoid any side effects of pesticides like fungal infections).
- Place the onion slice in your socks (under your foot, like a platform), and sleep as you usually do.
As you sleep, the mending parcels of the onions will be absorbed by the bases, and this will help in stimulating the meridians.
Onions are considered a natural remedy for colorful ails, and are known for their magical mending power. They’re also known as natural air cleansers, and when applied directly to the skin, they tend to remove the bacteria and kill the origins. The phosphoric acid (the substance that irritates our eyes while mincing onions) present in onions helps in purifying the blood as it enters the blood vessels.
You have nothing to lose by giving this onion and sock remedy a pass! It comes with a number of benefits. They are
Junking of origins and bacteria.
Elimination of poisons and chemicals from the bases and making them smell better ( believe it or not, it works!)
. Easing symptoms of fever like cold and flu.
Still, reusing the same onion slice isn’t at each recommended. So, be careful about that.
Who knew that commodity so simple and affordable can turn out to be so salutary for our health?
