Did you know that sleeping with a slice of onion in your sock can actually do wonders for your health? Well if not, after you read this, I promise you’ll go to bed with onions every night!
In Chinese medicine it is believed that the feet have a powerful and direct connection with all the internal organs, thanks to the “meridians” which traverse the entire body. These life-giving energy pathways help coordinate the work of the organs and keep your body balanced by regulating its functions.
Onions and garlic have an amazing ability to absorb bacteria and cleanse the body. When the phosphoric acid (the substance from onions that makes you cry when you cut them open) enters the bloodstream it helps to purify the blood and kill any bacteria or germs. It’s a cheap and simple detoxification.
Although not everyone believes in meridians or Chinese medicine, the truth is that this is all connected directly with the nervous system. They are very powerful electrical circuits within the body and are often dormant because we wear shoes and don’t get acupuncture done to help the meridians or nerves in any way. It’s important to walk barefoot to stimulate those meridians on the bottom of your feet as well as to ground yourself with the earth’s negative ion field.
One of the best ways to stimulate these nerve electronic pathways that lead throughout the body is with onions. If you want to cleanse your body, simply cut an onion into thick slices, place them on the soles of the feet and always wear socks over. You’ll want to use organic onions because they will be free of pesticides and other chemicals you don’t want sitting on your feet and entering your bloodstream all night.
