Fortunately, there is a magic remedy that can help us get rid fast of these problems: a very simple mixture of honey and onions. This mixture does wonders for our immune system and can strengthen our bodies, preparing them for facing the cold weather.
Onions are a very powerful ingredient and contain more disease-fighting polyphenols than even garlic. These polyphenols can prevent many serious problems such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases. They also contain quercetin, which is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. Onions have anti-bacterial, antispasmodic, expectorant, and anti-inflammatory properties so this means they are one of the best remedies for a weak immune system.
Combined with raw honey, onions will energize and strengthen your body, providing all the vitamins and minerals you need during the cold season. Honey is very well known for its healing properties. It relieves irritation in your throat by forming a protective film and can treat with success many upper respiratory tract infections.
To prepare the best cough remedy you need:
– 3 tablespoons of organic raw honey
– one medium onion
All you have to do is peel the onion and then cut it into small pieces. Put it in a deep bowl and pour the honey over it. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and leave it overnight at room temperature. The next morning strain the onion using a thick gauze and you’ll get a very effective homemade syrup. Consume it throughout the day.
You should use this remedy for 3-4 days if you want the best results. Consume this remedy with caution if you have stomach problems and don’t forget to hydrate your body very well everytime you catch a cold.
