The Reason Why She Puts Onions In Her Socks Before Going To Sleep Is Absolutely Brilliant

We’ve all heard about strange food-based health remedies before, and some of them sound pretty dubious. Are carrots really good for your eyes? Are cucumbers good for your skin? While the jury’s still out on these, there is one remedy that sounds even weirder, and it really works.

And it involves onions in your socks.

For years, people sick with colds or the flu have gone to bed with sliced onions in their socks and woke up feeling refreshed. This sounds absurd, but there is a reason for it.

There are more than 7,000 nerve endings on the bottom of your feet that connect to the rest of you body. These nerves have been a major focal point of Eastern medicine for thousands of years.

Onions, also a key ingredient in Eastern medicine, are naturally anti-bacterial. A sliced onion can purify the air around it. The trade-off, of course, is that the clean air smells like onions.

Fans of this treatment claim that going to sleep with the onion on your feet releases your body’s toxins into the root vegetable, leaving you feeling healthy and refreshed in the morning.
