7-20-09-OnionGRASONVILLE, MD – Thursday morning – Onions aren’t just for cooking you know!  Onions are high in potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium, Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and E, niacin, pantothenic acid, copper, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, fiber and folic acid. Who knew that the lowly onion had so many wonderful vitamins and minerals hidden within?

Did you know that onions are digestive, disinfectant, anti-inflammatory, good for diarrhea, for intestinal parasites, gallstones, rheumatism, infectious diseases, aids circulation, prevents blood clots, good for nasal congestion and for respiratory problems?  You can make a compress of fresh onions that have a cooling effect and an analgesic effect on minor burns, sunburn, and can help reduce swelling and inhibit bacterial growth.For insect bites, use a fresh cut onion and place on the skin over the insect bite to get some relief.  If you get bloated from eating raw onions, try frying them before eating.

Prepare an onion tea for coughs… take 3 small onions, 1 ¼ cups of water, and honey to taste. Peel the onions down to the deepest layer of the outer skin, cut in half and boil briefly, then simmer, covered for 15 minutes. Remove the onions and sweeten with honey. Drink in sips just before going to bed. Onion tea helps loosen mucus.

Start trying home remedies for what ails you, as they are very effective, don’t have the side effects of the over-the-counter medicines and prescription medications.  >>Candace
