Another Organic Flu Prevention Technique That Really Works

onions 2

The bottom of the feet have meridians, the feet have a potent and direct access point to the internal body organs. The meridians are thought to be the passageways to all body organs. There are numerous and various nerve endings in the bottom of the feet that are directly connected to various organs in the body which is known to be about 7,000 meridians.

One of the best methods that open these electrical passageways, or meridians, and that cleanse the internal organs without any toxic medications or change in the diet is cutting up onions or garlic and placing them in socks (at the bottom part of the feet) during the night while sleeping.

Onion and garlic are vegetables that are popular for their air purifying properties. They are also effective in killing bacteria and germs when applied to the skin, topically. Moreover, the phosphoric acid which the onions contain and which is responsible for the tears during the process of onion chopping or cutting gets into the bloodstream and cleanses the blood and kills the bacteria and the germs that may be festering and waiting to give you the flu.

The ingredients that you will need for this treatment are plastic wrap like saran wrap, warm socks and onion. Slice the onion into thin pieces and wait until its juice appear, which is going to take about a few minutes. Then, take the onion pieces and place them on your feet and then wrap them tightly with the plastic wrap and put on the socks over it.

The best socks to use are the woolen socks since they are the warmest, however, I don’t have woolen socks so I just use regular socks that fit my feet snugly. The plastic wrap is used to hold the onions compactly to your feet and it also keeps the odor of the onion not to permeate the bed/room. If your skin is sensitive, add some oily cream or some natural oil to the onion, this was/is not a problem with me, but some people tend to be skin sensitive, and if that is an issue with you, this is how you would resolve it. This treatment is supposed to be done in the evening, before going to bed, so that the onions can work during the night.

During this time, the nutrient ingredients found in the onion will get through the skin into the bloodstream and will provide numerous heath benefits to your body, such as blood purifying, preventing colds and other bacterial and viral infections, improving of the blood circulation and getting rid of the toxins from the body. In the morning discard the onions and use fresh ones the next night, as your toxins will be absorbed into the onions.

If you want to get the best results, then you should use homegrown onion and/or organic, since it is abundant in active compounds known as lachrymators. I use white onions as I have been told those are the best for this procedure, I can’t give you the reason, but that is what I use and it has always worked. The health benefits of onion depend on the amount of lachrymators. After you wake up, you should remove the onion bandage and then wash your feet using cold water.

Once you have done this, put on the woolen socks and warm your feet. This is a great method for improving the blood circulation, particularly for people who have troubles with bad blood circulation and diabetes. Furthermore, not only people with health issues should do this treatment, but those who are healthy should do it too. That is why it is always recommended, especially when you deal with flu, cold, fever, throat or lung issues, it is completely natural and extremely beneficial.

Another thing I do is take a white onion and cut the top off, just a little and place it in a bowl and place the bowl in and around the house, this will absorb the germs and toxins in your home, office etc. You will find that you reduce your times of getting ill. If the smell bothers you, just having the onion in your rooms will also work, you will know when it is time to replace them as they will turn blackish.  To your new year health…

Apple Cider Vinegar the Miracle Health Tonic

Vinegar

What can apple cider vinegar do, really the question could be, what can’t it do. You can use it for cleaning, gardening, health hygiene, diseases…the list goes on.

What makes apple cider vinegar so beneficial it has healing compounds which include acetic acid, potassium, magnesium, probiotics and enzymes. These compounds can kill head lice, ease digestion, prevent flu, prevent acne, reduce inflammation, kill fungus, regulate pH balance, dissolve kidney stones and helps relieve allergies, migraines, asthma, nausea, heart burn and wash toxins from the body.

Every morning before eating a take an apple cider vinegar detox drink and then wait for 20 minutes before eating anything…here is the recipe:

2T of organic apple cider vinegar with the mother in it
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of coconut sugar
3 dashes of cayenne pepper
I also add a splash of structured water
Shake very good and drink

I was told several years ago that I was borderline diabetic and my father was a full blown diabetic, so I have taken health precautions so I don’t follow in his footsteps, and it has worked, I have eliminated that condition by eating correctly and using food as medicine.

Here are 6 more reasons apple cider vinegar is one of the most powerful health tonic in your kitchen.

1) Diabetes.
The effect of apple cider vinegar on blood sugar levels is perhaps the best researched and the most promising of its health benefits. Several studies have found that vinegar may help lower glucose levels. Vinegar may be the most cost-effective diabetes medicine in history, but most people with diabetes still aren’t aware of its benefits.

2) Allergies
This miracle vinegar helps to break up mucous throughout the body and cleanse the lymph nodes. Believe it or not, research suggests that apple cider vinegar can help with allergies because of its ability to reduce mucous and sinus congestion. When reducing the effects of allergies, it can also help stave off sinus infections and their related symptoms, such as sore throats and headaches.

3) High Cholesterol.
It has been said that apple cider vinegar can lower cholesterol, it may increase HDL (“good” cholesterol) and reduce levels of triglycerides.

4) Blood Pressure and Heart Health.
Potassium in the vinegar ‘balances sodium levels in the body, which aids in maintaining blood pressure within healthy limits’ and ‘apple cider vinegar also contains magnesium, a mineral that works to relax blood vessel walls and thus lower high blood pressure’.

5) Restores Acid/Alkaline Balance
Apple cider vinegar helps the body maintain a healthy alkaline pH level, and some ‘alternative’ practitioners recommend using apple cider vinegar to help balance the body’s alkaline/acid levels. The theory behind the alkaline diet is that our blood is slightly alkaline (with a normal pH level of between 7.35 and 7.45) and that our diet should reflect this pH level as the body constantly strives to achieve this state of equilibrium.

Research shows that higher acid levels (lower pH level) leads to a lack of energy and higher incidences of infection. Proponents of the alkaline-acid theory believe that a diet high in acid-producing foods leads to lack of energy, excessive mucous production, infections, anxiety, irritability, headache, sore throat, nasal and sinus congestion, allergic reactions, and increased risk of conditions such as arthritis and gout.

6) Face and Hair Health
It is widely known that apple cider vinegar can be used as a rinse for your hair after shampooing to add healthy body and shine. Recycle an old shampoo bottle and fill it with 1/2 a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a cup of structured water. Pour through your hair after shampooing several times a week.

You can also dilute apple cider vinegar with two parts water, and spread the concoction over your face with a cotton ball as a toner at night after washing, or in the morning before you apply your moisturizer. You can also dab apple cider vinegar directly onto age spots and leave them on overnight to lighten their color.

Final Note.
Unpasteurized or organic Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) contains mother of vinegar, which has a cobweb-like appearance and can make the vinegar look slightly congealed. It’s the best way apple cider vinegar should be consumed.
