Onion syrup for colds/flu/cough - antiobiotic

medsHas antiobiotic properties......


Here's the recipe. Get a yellow onion (or use a sweet onion in a pinch). Slice the onion. Put one slice in a jar or container, then cover it with a layer of sugar. Add a second onion slice, then cover with another sugar layer. Repeat until the onion is used. Your first dose of syrup should be ready in a couple of hours, while 12 to 18 hours will yield an ample supply of ready-made colds and flu syrup.

"The sugar draws out an intercellular fluid, including a sulfur compound, that is both antibacterial and antiviral," Welliver said. "Plus, the syrup tastes pretty good."

You also can make a garlic syrup in the same fashion, which has similar properties to the onion and may even be more therapeutic. Using the same syrup with fresh gingerroot will produce syrup that likely will become a household staple for calming upset stomachs.

Can't one just eat onions or does it have to be special.

Can't you use something besides sugar? Dumping a bunch of sugar into your bloodstream all at once doesn't seem like a healthy idea to me.

Been using that trick for years, doesn't always works if taken late. When I feel a cold coming on, I boil water and add thin slices of onions to it, let it seep, add a bit of chicken stock for taste, have a few cups and when caught in time, it's a kickass cold/flu breaker.

First time i've heard using sugar to do the same job.

Oh, munching on a red onion all night will give me the same result.

It might work for you (without the surgar which is probably mostly for taste). Nothing is for sure, but this is the kind of thing you can experiment around with and be creative with, like adding more garlic and/or onions to some of your foods or juices. I don't know about Splenda, if you search around on the net you can find sites that say it is not health for you either. Think of something you can add onions or garlic too. Health food stores also have various garlic supplements, Kyolic comes to mind.

Don't use Splenda. It is really bad for you. Search the dangers of Splenda on Google.

I am diabetic too. I use Agave Syrup. Use it like sugar but you need less. It has a glycemic index of 11 for a tablespoon. No after taste. I bought my first bottle on Amazon. Expensive but totally worth it.

Re: Onion syrup for colds/flu/cough - antiobiotic
I tend to get bronchitis after a cold. I would like to have a lot of home remedy things around in case I pick up a cold, last time I had good results fending it off with stuff I had around the house. Thanks for this onion syrup recipe. Here's something about home remedies for bronchitis, never heard of turmeric for it before. I think it's an Ayurvedic site, will go back and get the link:


Bronchitis
Inflammation of Bronchi

Bronchitis refers to the inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the bronchial tubes within the lungs. Bronchitis may be acute or chronic. In chronic cases, the disease is of long duration and more serious.

Causes and Symptoms

Due to inflammation in the bronchi, large quantities of mucus are secreted and expelled as phlegm. This phlegm is sticky, semi-fluid and may even be purulent The patient suffers from fever, experiences some difficulty in breathing, and has a cough. Other symptoms are hoarseness, pain in the chest and loss of appetite.

An important cause of bronchitis is smoking. Excessive smoking irritates the bronchial tubes and lowers their resistance, so that they become vulnerable to germs breathed in from the atmosphere. Other causes are living or working in a stuffy atmosphere, use of drugs to suppress earlier diseases, and hereditary factors. Changes in weather and environment hasten the onset of the disease.

Remedies

Turmeric: One of the most effective home remedies for bronchitis is the use of turmeric powder. Half a teaspoon of this powder should be administered with half a glass of milk, two or three times daily. It acts best when taken on an empty stomach.

Ginger: Another effective remedy for bronchitis is a mixture comprising of half a teaspoon each of the powder of ginger, pepper, and cloves, three times a day. It may be licked with honey or taken as an infusion with tea. The mixture of these three ingredients has also antipyretic qualities and is effective in reducing fever accompanying bronchitis. It also tones up the metabolism of the patient.

Onion: Onions have been used as a remedy for bronchitis for centuries. They are said to possess expectorant properties, They liquefy phlegm and prevent its further formation. One teaspoon of raw onion juice, first thing in the morning, is very beneficial in such cases.

Spinach: Fifty grams of fresh leaves of spinach, and 250 ml of water should be mixed with a pinch of ammonium chloride and one teaspoonful of honey. This infusion is an effective expectorant in the treatment of bronchitis.

Sesame Seeds: An infusion of one teaspoon of sesame seeds, mixed with a teaspoon of linseed, a pinch of common salt, and a teaspoon of honey, can be given once at night with beneficial results in bronchitis. Half a teaspoon of dry seeds pounded into powder should be given, mixed with two tablespoons of water, twice daily. Alternately, a decoction of half a teaspoon of the same should be taken twice daily.

Almond: An emulsion of almonds is useful in bronchial diseases, including bronchitis. It is prepared by making a powder of seven kernels of almonds and mixing the powdered kernels in a cup of orange or lemon juice. This emulsion may be taken once daily at night.

Chicory: Chicory or endive is another effective home remedy for bronchitis. The powder of the dry root of this herb should be given in doses of half a teaspoon mixed with one teaspoonful of honey thrice daily. It is a very useful expectorant in chronic bronchitis.

Linseed: A hot poultice of linseed (alsi) should be applied over the front and back of the chest. This poultice may be prepared by mixing one cup or sixteen tablespoons of the seeds with a quantity of hot water, sufficient to convert them into a moist mealy mass. This should then be applied carefully, Turpentine may also be rubbed over the chest.

Dietary Considerations

In acute bronchitis, the patient should fast on orange juice and water till the acute symptoms subside. Thereafter, he should adopt an all-fruit diet for two or three days.

In the case of chronic bronchitis, the patient can begin with an all-fruit diet for five to seven days, taking three meals a day of fresh juicy fruits. After the all-fruit diet, he should follow a well balanced diet with emphasis on seeds, nuts, grains, raw vegetables, and fresh fruits. For drinks, unsweetened lemon water, or cold/hot plain water may be taken.

Other Measures

A hot Epsom salts bath every night or every other night is valuable during the acute stages of the attack. This bath is prepared by dissolving 11/2 kg of Epsom salt in 60 litres of water having a temperature of 37.80C. The patient should remain immersed in the bath for about twenty minutes. In the case of chronic bronchitis, this bath may be taken twice a week.

Hot towels wrung out and applied over the upper chest are helpful in both chronic and acute bronchitis. After applying three hot towels in turn for two or three minutes each, one should always finish off with a cold towel. A cold pack can be applied to the upper chest several times daily in acute conditions. The procedure is to wring out some linen material in cold water, wrap it two or three times round the affected part and cover it with flannel. The pack can remain for about an hour at a time.

Fresh air and outdoor exercise are also essential for the treatment of bronchitis. The patient is advised to take a morning walk every day. He should also perform yogic kriyas (cleansing exercises) such as jalneti and vamandhauti, and yogic asanas (body postures) such as ekpaduttanasana, yogamudra, bhujangasana, shalabhasana, padmasana, and shavasana. Simple pranayamas (breath-holding procedures) like kapalbhati, anuloma-viloma, ujjai, and bhramari will also be beneficial.
