Your feet, the bottom of the feet to be precise, have some access points that are believed to be connected to your organs. According to Chinese medicine, these access points in your feet are known as meridians that are closely related with your nervous system. The nerves present at the bottom of the feet act as a great electrical circuit within the body but they often become dormant when we wear shoes.
This is why walking barefeet on the grass or outside is advised. Doing so helps in stimulating the meridians at the bottom of the feet. But, if you can’t do that, you can try onion.
Topical application of onion is helpful in destroying germs and bacteria. Besides, it contains phosphoric acid that can help purify your blood.

So, the next time you go to bed, wear a fresh pair of socks with onion slice inside them to keep your organs healthy and functioning properly.
