?Onion a Medicine for Fever and Infectious Diseases
According to Islamic teachings, onion is a protection for human beings against various diseases.
?Imam Al-Sadiq (a.s.):
“Onion removes tiredness, improves the nerves (nervous system), increases the liquid (semen) and steps (walking ability) and also removes the fever.”
?قال الصادق (ع):
البصل یذهب النصب ویشد العصب ویزید فی الماء والخطا ویذهب الحمی
?Removing the fever in infectious diseases means removing the virus and the root of the issue.
?The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h):
“Whenever you enter a town make sure you eat the onion of that area to be safe from cholera.”
?قال رسول الله (ص):
اذا دخلتم بلادا فکلوا من بصلها یطرد عنکم وباءها
?Each town can have its own type of disease even if it shares similar symptoms as diseases in other towns. This is why the prevention of each disease can be found in the onion of that town.
