if you believe breating in magical onion air is going to solve any of your health problems, you probably deserve the outcome you will receive.
Lol that did make me chuckle, because the outcome of taking this threads advice is working out rather well for me thank you.
Just to let people know a few more details of how i've been this past week, apart from headaches i've had every symptom that is on the swine flu
list. Without going into too much detail...both ends have not been great!
It takes a lot to knock me over but this week i've not been on this planet.
My lungs have been the worst problem, very very heavy (i don't smoke, never have) and bringing up all kinds of crap. Fevers off and on and not having
the energy to get out much at all. I think i managed one trip out earlier in the week but even had to cut that short and put myself to bed.
As i said before, i have been taking over the counter meds, mainly the cough stuff and hot lemons, but after a week things still weren't great
yesterday and i was beginning to worry. Sore throat too that rivaled any case of tonsilitis i've had. The only way i can describe the way i've felt,
i have had glandular fever bad when i was younger and it was like that. Theres usualy nothing that will stop me going out with my kids, but even this
put paid to that,
So i took the advice here, not sure if i did it all correctly, but i am feeling great today!
Probably another day to get the lungs perfect again
but i feel very very well.
Yesterday afternoon i cut up a couple of onions into a bowl and poured boiling water onto them, then sat there for while inhaling the steam. Funnily
enough the steaming onion water doesn't affect your eyes like the chopping does.
I also had a pan of boiling water and chopped onions going on the stove for a while, and then at night i put a bowl of the same on my bedside
I even did the Vick on the feet trick lol....and i have to admit there was not one cough all night which was nice.
This morning i feel 100% than i have for a week. I am about to take my eldest out for the afternoon without a worry. I'll continue the onions for
another couple of days just to be sure, but i would say that this advice, along with the shop meds, has done the trick.
I have no doubt that if i had gone to the docs or hospital, i'd have been jabbed in a flash.
So thanks for the advice, i know some will doubt it but i'd say just try it first. What harm can it do?
By the way, i've spoken to a couple of elderly neighbours this morning and told them, they all said they'd sworn by onion remedies for decades.
