p.s anyone ever try putting a chopped onion in a vaporizer?
Yes, I did and I have to admit that I didn't like it. I woke up with a gnarly headache in the morning (cannot be sure it was from that) and everything smelled of onion, everything!
I was wondering how she is doing
My teenage daughter started getting sick last night with a sore throat, nasal drip and a headache. I read this thread the other day and came back to it. I sliced up an onion and poured boiling water over it. I had her put a towel over her head and breath in the steam. When it got warm, I put the pot on the floor in front of her heat vent. She said she felt better after the onion vapors. She stayed in her room most of the day breathing in the onion, and by evening she was feeling better. I also gave her tylenol to take throughout the day. She isn't 100 percent better, but she is feeling much better.
This is where I have 50% of my problems. God has put me thru hell my entire life- I have had things- simple things- that would have made my life a lot more livable taken from me. The way I have seen it: I do bad, God punishes me. I do good, 'Satan' punishes me. (attacks, punishes, it's the same thing, just different words).

I should probly have already done this to show I mean what I'm saying .I been running to all the other threads about the flu posting this like an idiot. I finally thought," what the hell am i doing? Just make a thread they will either listen or not.
Right now I have 1/2 an onion in a bowl with some water, that I cut up the day our boy came back from his cousins house with the flu. It was bad when he got here. He'd been dry heaving
this bright yellow biel looking fluid up. Immediatly he made the couch and I set a bucket down beside him. Joshua is seven yrs of age.
His mom being at work (Ralphs) I called her up and said," hey he has it,BAD".
N"Ok what do we do"?
"You bring the large white onions , I'll do the rest".
ow it's flashback time.
I'm talking forty two yrs of flashing back. To a time when in Chino Ca. there was an eight year old boy, who as far as I can remember, must have been close to death, on a cot in the kitchen of his mother and fathers house on Riverside Dr.
My Mom put me in the kitchen cause she was wearing out the carpet going back and forth to my room I guess. I had pnuemonia, and I can remember my hands
my head and my lungs all felt like baloons. Pink Floyd? Every time I hear it.
My back and sides hurt so bad from coughing, this being as I remember it the tenth day I stayed home from school.
No medical in our life at that time. So this was like the worst thing could have happened.
.My Mom had been trying everything she could, but I wasn't going to shake this crap. It's grip was just to tight. I remember the call she made to her Mom
back in St. Joe. Missouri. Though I was barely conscious. I remember the tears were flowing down her face and my Dad at the kitchen table, with his head in his hands.
I knew when I got older I must have been in trouble because my Mom was a
very stern and tough country gal from the heartland.Took a lot to bring her to tears.
When she got off the phone she said," I'm going to the store" as she grabbed her purse and flew out the door.
I don't remember anything after that until the next morning, I woke up and the
whole place smelled like onions.
My Mom had a humidifier under the cot steaming with cut up onions in it.I didn't know what time it was but everyone in the house was asleep and I was starving.
I grabbed a box of cereal out of a cupboard, turned around, and there was my Mom standing there crying. I guess it really took a toll on her cause she said in this low voice ,"You get your azz back on that cot at least for the rest of the day".
I could have probly went out side that day.But I agreed still being exhausted.
The call she made to her Mom, resulting in an old remedy she barely remembered her Mom using, when she was a kid, got me out of a bad way fast.
Lets end the flashback here, what do you say?
So the boy had fallen asleep on the couch and that's where he was when she
got home with the onions. I cut up 1/2 a white onion in a bowl added water sat in the living room with Josh. He woke up two hours later like nothing ever happened.
My wife was astonished. So now the bowl, the Onions in the water are accepted .
Nobody in this house is sick. Period. And nobody will be. I've sworn by this my whole life and it hasn't failed once.
Just wanted to share.

Drummerboy a big thank you for being somebody who takes
Well a few more onion successes, A business partner of mine came down with a bad cough and congestion. I explained the remedy to him and two days later He has improved greatly, wherein it would have taken him many more days to try to shake the sinus part of the cold. Another one was my wife, her profession has her working very closely with many people. A few days ago, I could tell she was coming down with something sinus related. I explained the remedy to her. My suggestion is to Hit the cold with raw onion first to get it in the system quicker by inhaling the vapor of a freshly sliced onion deeply into the nose and lungs. then I recommend a few slices in a shallow pan,inch of water and boil, then breathe in steam for a while. This alone worked for both. I would say if I was feeling really sick then the onions at bed side would be my next step. Hope this helps somebo
