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.
If you believe you have nerves and a nervous system, you believe you have meridians too, it’s basically the same thing when you interpret it and look at where the meridians are within the body.
The bottom of the feet have many different nerve endings, approximately 7,000 (basically meridians) that directly link to different organs within the body. They are very powerful electrical circuits within the body and are often dormant because we wear shoes and don’t get accupuncture done to help the meridians or nerves in any way. This is why I recommend walking outside barefoot! To stimulate those meridians on the bottom of your feet as well as to ground yourself with the earth’s negative ion field.
One of the coolest ways to open up these electrical pathways (meridians) and to help purify your internal organs without doing anything internal (diet related) is to cut up onions or garlic and put them in your socks (at the bottom part of your feet) while sleeping.
Onions and garlic are known air purifiers and when applied to the skin topically they kill germs and bacteria but also the phosphoric acid (the substance from onions that makes you cry when you cut them open) enters the bloodstream it helps to purify the blood and kill any bacteria or germs that may be festering waiting to give you the flu.
Some people go so far as to say to never reuse an onion because it will collect germs and bacteria and then you’re eating that. I am not sure if this is true or not because it’s a percentage of people that say it is, and some that say it isn’t! What I do know though is that the onions do age (oxidize, age from oxygen) on the layer that’s cut open and eating oxidized food isn’t the freshest and healthiest form of that food, so cutting that layer off before you eat the onion may be smart to avoid eating germ or bacteria infested layer of onion.
So it’s fairly simple, here are the two steps to purify your blood, and kill germs and bacteria.
Step 1: Cut Up Organic Onions Into Slices (White or Red Onions)
You’ll want to use organic onions because they will be free of pesticides and other chemicals you don’t want sitting on your feet and entering your bloodstream all night. You’ll just want to cut the onions into flat slices so that they can be applied to the bottom of your entire foot (like a platform) so the bottom of your feet are immersed with onion while you sleep.
Step 2: Put The Onions In Your Sock Under Your Foot (on the bottom) And Sleep!
As you sleep the natural healing powers of the onion will go to work through your skin (trans-dermal application) purifying your blood and killing bacteria and germs as well as absorbing toxins! It will also help to purify the air in your room.
You’ll benefit from the air purifying effects as well! In England, during plagues they would chop up onions and leave them in the room to purify the air and to help them not be susceptible to infections, the flu or anything that may harm them.
As you can see here in the picture below the organs and systems within the body and their meridian connection points in the foot.
Here are the benefits of cutting up an onion and putting it in your sock (at the bottom) while you sleep…
1. Purify your blood: Phosphoric acid from the onions as it’s applied and absorbed through trans-dermal means purifies the blood.
2. Kills bacteria, germs and pathogens: Onions (and 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 and chemicals pulling them out of your feet while you sleep.

I will try this. Although not sure the reference to the plague was a big plus! It wasn't cured by onions was it?
Cool, good luck!
Um… When you cut an onion, it releases a gas called Propanethiol S-oxide. When mixed with certain enzymes in the onion, it creates a sulfur gas. These gases then get to your eyes and create a mild acid which irritates the eyes. The gas creates a mild sulphuric acid. Not phosphoric.
from my understanding it creates both, or maybe just sulphuric acid but phosphoric acid is still released as well.
Will this help blood pressure?
It may, do onions help blood pressure? if so, i’d ingest them more… i’m really not sure.
It sounds very interesting but I can’t really read it. Black on dark brown is not a good choice! Yes, I have my glasses on!
Sorry, I’ve been meaning to change that for a while! will look into it!
Ya this is bullshit. Not how they make you cry. Nothing enters the bloodstream.
Try it for yourself, my feet tingle and you can actually feel it… your blood tingles too.
What do you mean your blood tingles??? which planet are you from??
Try it, you’ll see what I mean. You feel your circulation and blood more. Hard to describe you’ll just have to try it.
Yes it does I’ve just tried for the first time and it feels so weird but I do feel tingling and blood flow
I will try once I get organic onions.
I want to believe in all these but I'm afraid of the smell during the night or for feet…
Your feet really do not smell bad at all, try it out one time!
My house smells like a sub shop now.
Heavy metals can also be drawn out via the feet for treating Autism . I’ll try the Onion socks next time I’m sleeping in the dog house .
very cool, thank you for sharing.
They grow very easy in any soil . You can plant the bottom part that you cut off when pealing .
Meridians and nerves are not the same thing. They are different pathways. I think this guy is mixing up modalities. The picture is from reflexology that is actually based on nerve endings and not meridians.
I’m not saying they are the same thing, but they are related and if there was no nervous system I don’t think there would be meridians, and vice versa… they create each other in some way? (if that makes sense)
I'd be much more afraid of Pharmaceuticals .
My grandad was a miner back in Wales. He told us he never had onion in his sandwiches for lunch as it would absorb the gases down in the mine and poison the person who ate it.
crazy. Thanks for sharing!
nope, "cured" or dealt with by finding the cause of the infection (the water supply) and cutting it off.
My mom put onion in our socks when we were kids. That smell is NOT fresh!
To reply to your "nothing enters bloodstream". WHAT does HIGH BLOOD ALCOHOL content means to you. Look it up if u want to learn something.
An Hoang Well i think …. its about entering into bloodstream from skin below your feet… or do you put alcohol right next to your skin to get high :p
In school people would put dip in between their toes to get a tabacco buzz!?
lol… really? interesting.
Strangely enough, it might help with smelly feet…
it does! onion soaks up bad smells.
To help your high blood pressure, stop eating junk food, processed food, cheese, mayonnaise, sauces, pre-packaged food, fried food, hot oil, sugar, Milk, cream, ice-cream, eggs, meat, fish, chicken, and stop to drink sodas, (even diet sodas). and stop to drink ANY JUICE FROM A BOX.
Drink MORE water, Eat MUCH more Vegetables,, and DRAMATICALLY INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF FRUIT YOU HAVE EVERY DAY. (and get a good sleep every night).
this is the MAIN way to cure ALL your problems, blood pressure and all the rest.
If you can’t get this right it makes the rest rather dubious.
Question: Why Do Onions Make You Cry?
Answer: Unless you’ve avoided cooking, you’ve probably cut up an onion and experienced the burning and tearing you get from the vapors. When you cut an onion, you break cells, releasing their contents. Amino acid sulfoxides form sulfenic acids. Enzymes that were kept separate now are free to mix with the sulfenic acids to produce propanethiol S-oxide, a volatile
sulfur compound that wafts upward toward your eyes. This gas reacts with the water in your tears to form sulfuric acid. The sulfuric acid burns, stimulating your eyes to release more tears to wash the irritant away.
Couple of days early but still a good April Fools Day Joke.
it’s seriously not an April fools joke! lol, my timing with this post was bad because people keep thinking that it is.
If this is serious then why does the first of the two links you cite as your sources ridicule the concept?
Hi David, the patheos is a person’s perspective who agrees it and the blogger ridicules it… yes, most people ridicule it because they are skeptical. It’s a common practice in Europe (used with other vegetables beyond onions as well) and myself along with others who actually try and put it to the test see great results from it.
So putting the onion on one of the worst places for access to blood is supposed to help get into your blood stream?
Also, what’s the whole point with talking about the meridians when that has nothing to do with absorption into the blood? The liquid from an onion can’t magically be absorbed through your nervous system.
Most people are skeptical but this is a common practice in Europe (with other vegetables also) try it for yourself. I just had someone comment on the video on youtube and say they weren’t feeling good last night, he had a fever… he did this last night and this morning his fever is gone.
Wow! There are so many unsubstantiated claims in the above piece I really don’t know where to start! How about this – is there any rigorous, scientific evidence suggesting that the onion in socks thing purifies the blood and cleans the internal organs? If so, that would be a medical revolution, so please share the links to the studies that have been done on this which provide evidence of the efficacy. I suspect there are none, and this is all total nonsense, but would love to be proved wrong.
There are no studies because this wouldn’t be a profitable study to fund! Try it and see for yourself. Be your own scientific experiment and please read this: http://healthywildandfree.com/this-change-view-sciences-correlation-health/
You can’t expect to have science behind this… obviously. But transdermal application has science, and onions have science… piece things together and try new things, it works and it’s common in Europe along with other vegetables on the bottom of their feet while they sleep as well.
“There are no studies because this wouldn’t be a profitable study to fund!”
This ^ This ^ This ^ This ^ This ^ a thousand fucking times this ^^^
I have just read both articles re onions in sock and onions in ears, at night. I live in Europe and I remember way back my mum used to cut a spud in round shapes put it in a piece of cloth and put it on our forehead when we had fever .Cannot remember the result but I am still alive. I will try both your onion experiments as soon as I get organic onions.
