Have you heard about the health benefits of onions? It has been said that placing sliced up onions around the room can prevent diseases, as people did this during the time of the Bubonic plague to keep from getting sick. At the same time, if you placed slices of onion on the soles of your feet and wear a sock over them, you will feel better if you are down with something.
Well, last Saturday, we experienced it first hand. Dindin was joining the elimination round of the SM Little Stars 2014 here in Bacolod City on Sunday, July 27, 2014. But when Saturday came, she started sneezing and had colds. When she slept that night, she could barely breathe. We could hear her snoring and occasionally gasping for air. The mucous was causing all the weird noises that she was producing. We felt helpless.
While I prayed for Dindin, I remembered the onions. I think it was also God’s wisdom that directed me. I went to the kitchen and looked for a medium-sized onion that can just fit her feet. I parted the middle part and got two thin slices for her feet. The upper and lower portions were then placed on a small container that I also brought in the room to supposedly clean the air.
After I did all this, I went to my computer and checked the veracity of this so-called onion remedy and many have disputed it in several articles, saying that it does not work. But I thought, we really had nothing to lose, except that our room smelled bad and our eyes were burning. And that is just one onion! I kept working on my computer and after about 30 minutes, I noticed that Dindin stopped gasping for air. She closed her mouth while sleeping and she slept soundly until the next morning.
Wow! Onion works!
The next day, we just had to clean her nose with a saline solution spray to remove the mucous that had dried up there during the night. And she was able to blow those green mucous out. We had to do this several times until we left for the contest that afternoon. She sang well at the contest and guess what? She was chosen as the SM Little Stars 2014 for Bacolod (girls) and will represent the city in the Regionals on August 16. Thank you Lord!
How about you? Have you also tried onions on your feet when you are not feeling well?
