Raw onion will also help to relax the bronchial airways with an asthma attack

    I tried it last night...the onion was just as white as when I cut it last night and I still have the horrible cold. Maybe I didn't do it right....any suggestions?

    I woke up yesterday with a cold and still have it today. I will be trying the "onion" treatment tonight.
I sure hope it works. emoticon

    wish I had known about this before. I have been battling a chest infection for 2 months.

    In Germany we go even further: If you have an infant with ear infection a freshly cut thick onion slice wrapped on his or her ear will help pull the puss out, if there is any. Raw onions just pull the germs out of everything!
