In Chinese healing, it is assumed that there are around 7000 nerve endings directly under the soles of the feet. The so-called meridians have direct access to our internal organs. The foot reflex zone massage as well as acupuncture and acupressure are based on this train of thought.
Proponents of the "onion socks" assume that the healthy nutrients in onions, such as phosphoric acid, get into the blood through the soles of the feet. The active ingredients and essential oils of the onion are supposed to destroy the bacteria and germs and thus purify the blood.
And this is how it works: Before you go to bed, cut a red ORGANIC onion, if possible, into thick slices. Then place the onion slices on the soles of your feet and pull socks over them.
By the way: After the treatment, the feet should smell neutral or even better than before due to the antibacterial effect.
