Did you know that on the bottom of your feet, you have direct access points to the organs in your body?
In Chinese medicine, these are known as meridians, and they are closely linked to the body’s nervous system.
On the bottom of your feet, you have around 7,000 nerve endings, powerful electrical circuits that are often sat dormant because you never access these endings. Shoes often hide the nerve endings, while acupuncture is a way to access them, but it is not very often that we have acupuncture.
The best way to access them is to walk barefoot – the ground stimulates the meridians and grounds you, by accessing its negative ion field. Accessing these points has a great impact on you and your body.
However, there is also another way to access them if you don’t want to walk around all day with bare feet, which, let’s face it, isn’t the most practical. If you put sliced onions or garlic in your socks on the bottom of your feet and sleep with them like this, it also has the same effect and more.
How does it work?
Onions and garlic are air purifiers and when they are applied to the skin they not only kill germs and bacteria on the feet, but the phosphoric acid in the roots also enters your bloodstream, purifies your blood and kills any bacteria or germs that may be festering in your body.
Not only will the onion purify your blood and kill bacteria and germs, but it will also purify the air in the room. This goes back centuries when residents in England during the plague would chop up onions and leave them in the room to purify the air.
How to prepare onions for your feet.
Use organic white or red onions and cut them into slices, put the onions in your sock on the bottom and then sleep.
Get yourself a pair of socks that you can wear exclusively with the onions.
So what are you waiting for? Give it a go and access parts of your nervous system that your body has never felt before, feel the benefits after just a few nights with sliced onions in your socks. It sounds strange, but you’ll be thanking us later…
