Did you know that the bottoms of your feet are a direct entryway into your body through what Chinese doctors call meridians? Meridians are pathways to each organ in the body. Some argue that meridians don’t actually exist, but those who understand Chinese medicine recognize that meridians are closely related to the nervous system. And you have one of those, right? It’s basically the same thing.
The bottoms of your feet have a variety of different nerve endings. 7,000 to be precise. Those nerves link to a variety of different organs in the body. The electrical signals sent across these meridians often become dormant when you wear shoes. Stimulating those meridians is important. You can do so by grounding yourself with the earth’s negative ion field (stand outside without shoes on) or using onions.
One of the coolest ways to stimulate these meridians is with cut up onion or garlic in your socks (at the bottoms of your feet) while you sleep. Both bulbs are known as air purifiers and when applied to the skin, they kill germs and bacteria. Phosphoric acid also enters the blood stream and helps purify the blood. We don’t recommend reusing onions as they collect the germs and bacteria. We also don’t encourage eating the foot onions.
