Cure the common cold by placing onion slices on the soles of your feet. Secure with plastic wrap and cover with a sock. Keep them on overnight to help draw out toxins through your feet and speed up your healing process.
Grate a large onion finely and squeeze out the juice by wrapping the grated onion in cheesecloth and pressing firmly. Then, steep a cup of strong peppermint tea and let it cool. Drink 2 teaspoons of the onion juice and wait 5 minutes. Follow up with 2 teaspoons of tea and wait another 5 minutes. Repeat as needed.
Do not eat or drink in between each treatment. Your symptoms should subside within 15-20 minutes.
4. Cough & Bronchitis
Combine finely chopped onions with coconut oil to make a paste. Apply the mixture to your chest, cover with a dishtowel, and secure in place using a cloth bandage. Leave it on overnight and clean up in the morning. This will help expel phlegm from your lungs to shorten the duration of your illness.
You can also use onions to make a cough syrup. All you need to do is peel a large onion and slice in half. Cover the cut side of each half with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Cover with plastic wrap for an hour. Chop the onion and store in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Take a tablespoon of the mixture twice a day as needed.
