Secret Onion Remedy
« on: October 04, 2009, 01:24:14 am »
I got this in a forwared email from my uncle, thought it was amazing...and i believ it

Quote
In 1919 when the flu killed
40 million people there was this Doctor that visited the many farmers
to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and
their family had contracted it and many died.

The doctor came
upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was very healthy.
When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different
the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in
the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The
doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the
onions and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when
he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously
absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.Now,
I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. 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 must work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)

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. We did it last year and we never got the flu.

If
this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.
If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..
Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who
regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied
with this most interesting experience about onions:

Weldon,thanks
for the reminder. 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 have
powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.

Interesting idea! 
Here's another way to use an onion to keep yourself from catching the flu from others (and I thought for sure this is what I was going to read when I clicked this open....) 
Eat a whole, uncooked onion every day before you leave the house.  People will avoid you at all costs and your chance of catching the flu from them goes down dramatically!!

I think it's better to eat the onions.  My parents always said onions keep the colds away.  They eat onions and are very healthy rarely get a cold or anything.  I don't like onions and will only eat it chopped up really fine like on a McD's cheeseburger and I get a cold about once a year.
