THIS is why you should sleep with an onion slice in the sock
Ayurveda states that keeping onions slices in socks can boost immunity, cleanse the body and fight infections and ailments without need for medication. Chinese practice Foot Reflexology also finds it relevant as it states that nerves of all vital nerves are linked to the feet therefore placing onions in the socks can promote internal healing.
What are the health benefits of onions?
Onions are also more effective that chemical antibiotics which can overtime result in antibiotic resistance thereby forcing one to rely on stronger, more harmful antibiotics which can damage the kidneys over time. Other health benefits of onions include:
- Fighting viruses and infections the minute they come in contact with the body
- Improved glucose tolerance and better blood sugar management in diabetes patients
- Generates heat due to the phosphoric acid which can seep into the blood vessels, purify blood and boost blood circulation
Since the feet possess nerve endings of the nervous system, coming in contact with a component that has antibacterial properties can have a healing effect on health – and what better onions in this case – atleast as per Ayurveda.
