The onion is a powerful vegetable with potent antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. Normally, we just use onion to cook with, but its healing properties are being brought to light and people are discovering new ways to utilize the vegetable. Some ways are pretty unconventional, for example, putting them on your neck to help your thyroid, or putting them in your socks to expel toxins.
Many people stand up at jobs for 8 hours or more every day. This can cause lower limb circulation problems, especially for those who are overweight or obese, although, those who are overweight tend to experience more swelling around the ankles.

Purify your body and improve circulation while you sleep by putting onions in your socks. Because the bottoms of your feet are direct access points to your internal organs, the onions can help draw out impurities that may be in your system. You know how cutting onions can make you cry? The compound, phosphoric acid, that causes this actually enters the bloodstream through your feet and can kill bad bacteria.
Here’s How To Do It
Make sure you buy organic onions because the pesticides or chemicals in regular onions can enter your bloodstream and negatively affect your health. Cut your onions in flat slices so that you can easily put them on the bottoms of your feet.
Place the sliced onions on the bottoms of your feet and put on socks that you are ready to throw away. The onions will go to work on your body, and they will also help purify the air in your room.
Go to sleep.
When you wake up, you’ll notice that your socks are moist. This is toxic waste that has left your body. Repeat this process nightly, or a few times week, to feel the change in your health.
