"Ogres are like Onions, They have Layers!"
I love onions! They are such a resource. Not only are they delicious-to me, but, they provide hidden qualities medicinally that are not commonly used anymore. They are one of those foods that God intended for our use. I am studying natural healing through diet and herbs and the onion has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years as not just a food, but, a medicine. Used internally and externally it can draw toxins out of the system and to it's location, it can stimulate circulation, evoke tears when chopped which aids in respiratory problems. Poultices and broths, aroma therapies and more. Eaten consistently raw onions can reduce high blood pressure and lower high cholesterol. There are so many uses for onions! And, it is a great escort to most foods, enhancing it's flavor. Onions should be studied further for their inexpensive, yet powerful medicinal actions they posses. If you have time, this is a great article on the medicinal uses of the onion.http://www.herballegacy.com/Peret_Medicinal.html So, let's see what we can do with the onion this week!
