The bottom of your feet are powerful and direct access points to internal organs in your body through what is known as meridians in Chinese medicine. These meridians are pathways to each organ with your body. Some people say that meridians do not exist within the body or at the bottom of the feet. For those that understand Chinese medicine you may know that the meridian system is very closely correlated with the nervous system.
One of the coolest ways to enhance the meridian system is to cut up onions or garlic and put them in your socks (at the bottom part of your feet) while sleeping. Even you don’t believe the meridian system, here are some additional benefits of cutting up an onion and putting it in your sock while you sleep.
1. Purify your blood: Phosphoric acid from the onions as it’s applied and absorbed through trans-dermal can purifies the blood.
2. Kills bacteria, germs and pathogens: Onions, or garlic have strong anti-bacterial and anti-viral benefits.
3. Purify the air: This little chamber of smelly onion around your feet will purify the air and keep your feet smelling better and free of toxins or chemicals, as the onion will pull them out of your socks while you sleep.
