PSA: Feeling poorly? Stuff a cut onion in your sock overnight!

So I happened to see one of those teaser ads on a web page with the tagline something to the effect of "Diabetes cure - doctors amazed" or somesuch, and I couldn't quite make out what was going on in the accompanying picture, until I realized someone was stuffing a cut-in-half-red-onion in their sock!

Okay, so I had to see what that was about - and the actual link turned out to be some diabetes health scam unrelated to onions. But I couldn't grab the original click-bait picture, so I thought I'd check Google images:

Put a red onion in your sock

OMG!







(I'm guessing #1 is that your spouse will toss your body out of bed and call the psych helpline)

and, what the heck - also go ahead and stick one in your ear!


I can't believe I've lived nearly 60 years and never before heard about this wonder cure! Isn't the internet great?

How about you? Do you stick onions (or other vegetative flora) in your socks (or ears, etc) before bed? If so, spill the beans!

As I recall, it was the fashion in the day.

Maybe it's coming back.

Those same teaser ads used to be in the back pages of magazines/print rags, often teasers to buy someones book full of old wives tales/ miraculous herbal medicinal cures .

Onions in your socks are probably a miracle cure for autism too. RollingEyesSmiley5

There are herbal potions that can be beneficial but there are scammers everywhere.



Edit: VERY IMPORTANT !!! They need to be bonafide organic, BPA and gluten-free onions.

I usually put garlic cloves between my toes and wear ankle socks. Wife doesn't mind as she has already gone to the guest room because of my snoring.

I immediately flashed to Grandpa Simpson and the onion on his belt, and a pocketful of bees.

I used to work with an old guy who was basically Grampa Simpson with Tourette's. The .wav of that old "tied an onion to my belt" speech got a serious workout in that office.

So a tropical cure would be to use a pineapple?
