During the 1918 flu epidemic when tens of millions of people around the world died, a doctor in China visited many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many families had contracted it. However, the doctor came to one peasant family and found everyone to be unexpectedly healthy.
The doctor asked what they had done to remain healthy. The wife said she placed an intact onion (with the skin on) in every room. The doctor could not believe it, and asked if he could have one of the onions. When he put the onion under a microscope, he found flu viruses on the onion, which had absorbed the pathogens and therefore kept the family healthy.
Now, I heard similar story from my hairdresser in Arizona. She said that several years ago many of her employees and her customers had the flu. The following year, she put a few onions in her fruit bowl. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick that year. It seems the onions really did the trick.
The core of the story is, buy some onions and place them on the fruit plate in your home.
Last year, we put some onions in our offices, and no one got sick. Onions can help prevent you and your family from catching the flu. Even if you do catch the flu, your symptoms will be much lighter. Even if it does not work for you at all, the worst is that you wasted a few onions.
I told my friend the story of the onions and flu. She shared with me her interesting experience. She told me she didn’t know about the farmer’s story, but that she contracted pneumonia. Needless to say, she was very ill. She read an article saying to cut both ends off an onion, insert a fork, and then put the fork in a vase, and put it by the patient’s side at night.
The article said the onion would turn black in the morning from the germs. Sure enough, just liked the article described, the onion was a mess next morning, but she began to recover. The article also mentioned how onions and garlic saved many lives during the black plague years ago.
Please try this simple secret to keep you and your family healthy.
