Here's what the onions can do to combat flu according to the
information derived from a forwarded email. It would not hurt to try it.
In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this doctor who visited
many farmers to see if he could help combat the flu. Many of them had contracted
it and many died.
The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone in his family
was very healthy. The farmer said that his wife had placed an unpeeled onion in
a dish in the rooms of the home. The doctor couldn't believe it and asked
if he could have one of the onions and placed it under the microscope.
He did find the flu virus in the onion. The onion obviously absorbed the
bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.
Another similar story came out from a hairdresser in Arizona. She said that
several years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so
were many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions
around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It should had
The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around your
home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or under your desk
or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens. The said that they
did it last year and they never got the flu.
Here's another interesting experience about onions from somebody in Oregon: I
don't know about the farmers story...but, I do know that I contacted pneumonia
and needless to say I was very ill...I came across an article that said to cut
both ends off an onion, put one end on a fork and then place the forked end into
an empty jar...placing the jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the
onion would be black in the morning from the germs...sure enough it happened
just like that...the onion was a mess and I began to feel better.
Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed around the
room saved many from the black plague years ago. They must have powerful
antibacterial, antiseptic properties.
We do not
always have to follow a path; we could try where there is no path
and leave a trail for others to follows.
