Onions May Hold the Key To Freer Breathing

I TOLD THE Medicos today that oe of the ICU doctors used onion for breathing.They smiled at me with that ” she’s nuts ” look to which I have become accustomed and almost immune. Now I have found this article. Tokd you so, Medicos. It worked a treat in Hospital. 

While searching for a cure for asthma, I learned that onion extracts in particular can be very effective in the prevention of asthma attacks. An alcoholic extract made from 200 grams of onions were found to reduce bronchial spasms and airway obstruction were dramatically and in several cases totally eliminated.Over 150 different compounds have been isolated from onions so far. It appears that certain sulfur compounds and volatile oils in the onion are responsible for its ability to prevent asthma. These components apparently inhibit the body’s formation and release of histamines, leukocytes and certain inflammatory prostaglandins, all of which trigger an asthma attack.I have come up with a simple recipe so that you can make your own homemade anti-asthma onion extract.
