It may initially sound like an unlikely combination, but feet and onions are synonymous in forming an alternative cure for Upper Respiratory symptoms. Considering the feet are intrinsically connected to the brain through minute touch receptors, it’s worth remembering that they send integral messages to our brains. The under-the-foot wrap is an old remedy and very effective when used to treat flu, fever, sinusitis and upper respiratory disorders in general.

It works on the same basic principles that we find used in reflexology; the intimate link that exists between the sole of the foot and the rest of the body. This type of wrap is suitable for children aged six months and older and of course their adult counterparts. It’s effective, cheap and easy to put together.
