Tonight I decided to share with you the power of the onion! I believe in the power of the onion as it helped save my son as I drove him to hospital during an asthma attack! Onion draws mucous out of the body and therefore works very well to help to clear up a cold, sore throats etc. It also helps in opening the passage way of person having an asthma attack. (only problem is how often do you carry an onion in your purse!) Onion also draws bacteria out of the environment. If you place an onion next to your bed during sickness you will awake the next day feeling better but with a black onion as the onion will have drawn the bacteria out of your body.

This can of course have a negative too. You must ensure if you cut into an onion that you use the whole onion because if you put a cut onion into the fridge it will draw all the bacterias out of the fridge and could make you quite sick.

But back to the positives!…My sister-in-law is visiting us at the moment and she has picked up a bad cold after flying internationally. I normally make a concoction of chopped onion and rice milk, heat it until warm to the touch and drink. But tonight in order to add some extra benefits to the tea I have added some fresh ginger, turmeric, and rosella flowers. What a delicious tea and triple the benefits!

With the onions mucous drawing properties, the Rosellas nose clearing properties and the ginger and turmerics natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory properties it is a must have flu and cold recipe!

Here is the recipe;
8 Rosella flowers
1 inch cube of ginger (chopped)
1 inch cube of fresh turmeric (chopped)
1 onion (chopped)
2-4 cups of rice milk
Heat til warm to touch then let steep for about 15 minutes. Strain, drink and heal!
Of course if you haven’t got access to fresh turmeric(which looks like ginger but is bright yellow/orange) you can settle for 1 tsp of turmeric powder.
