Medicinal properties of Indian onions and the rules of application of the juice of this poisonous plant

At the end of the twentieth century, the Siberian healers turned their attention to the healing properties of Indian onions or the Orchithus (Ornithógalum). Since then, it has gained widespread popularity. Several species of bulbous plants are threatened with destruction. Therefore, they were listed in the Red Book of the Russian Federation.

Ornithohalum belongs to the perennial plants of the Asparagaceae family. Historical homeland is considered to be South America. In Russia, the species was introduced to the Leningrad Botanical Institute from Germany. The name of the Indian onion was given by the association of burning milky juice with Indian spices, and not by the geographical area of ​​growth.

There and in many other countries, Indian onions are grown as an ornamental plant in flowerbeds. Rapid reproduction and unpretentiousness of the plant relative to the growing conditions contribute to its popularity.

Characteristic

The popular name “Indian onion” is given to the poultry for the similarity with Indian spices. The plant has no roots in India, and with the usual varieties of onions it combines only the appearance of the root. In science, the plant is called tail poultry, for the similarity of inflorescences with a tail, botanists attribute it to the family of hyacinth.

Growing Indian Onions

In Russia, Siberian healers began the first to grow Indian onions. The use of this plant in folk medicine has yielded positive results; they have been successfully used in the treatment of a wide variety of diseases.Since the onions were brought to Siberia from the People's Republic of China, there it is called not Indian onion, but Chinese. As noted above, the caudal bird can be grown at home in pots. Indian onion is unpretentious, does not require heating and artificial ultraviolet. Onions and leaves used in the treatment can be collected as needed, regardless of the season. Onions grow at home easier than many popular indoor flowers.

Indian onion as a medicinal plant

Medicine is in no hurry for the Indian onion to give the official status of a medicinal plant. For some reason, the study of the poultry meat caudal tail is sluggish, but healers and healers began to use this plant for a long time to treat many diseases. Medicine has officially confirmed only one property of the plant: Indian onions - poisonous. But every doctor knows that there are many poisons that in small doses have healing properties and have an excellent effect on the human body.Some doctors know firsthand that Indian onions are very useful. Application, reviews of the plant speak for themselves, and some doctors actively use onions in their practice as an auxiliary drug. And they recommend that patients with various injuries lubricate sore spots with onions. Dislocations, bruises, strains and various boils, Indian onions will help everywhere. The use of onions is also effective in diseases of the spine and joints.

Indian onion treatment

As mentioned above, the leaves and bulbous plants have medicinal properties. It is best to collect drying leaves. Unlike the young, in the old concentration of nutrients is much higher. Removing dry leaves, you help the onions grow faster, and he, in turn, heals you. So this is mutual help.It is enough to smear the sore spot with onion juice a little, and after a while the pain will go away.

Interesting: you can recognize the age of Chinese onions by the number of leaves. One sheet - one year.

It blooms in spring and early winter. Blooms profusely, white small flowers with a longitudinal green stripe in the center of each leaf.

Indian onions - medicinal properties

Official medicine is in no hurry to study the properties of onions and recognize it as a medicinal plant. But it is precisely known that the poultry lamb is poisonous, in its chemical composition there are alkaloids, which in small doses have a therapeutic effect, but in large doses can become a poison.

Attention! The sap of the plant is used only externally. If you are offered recipes that involve the reception of funds inside - ignore them.

The main factor when using onions as a remedy is its chemical composition. In the plant you will find sulfur-containing compounds, glycoside, colchicine, vitamins, and other biologically active substances, giving a modest flower a powerful antiseptic, analgesic and wound-healing effect.

Traditional healers are confident and have repeatedly tested in practice that Indian onions inhibits the development of tumors of various origins, improves blood flow.

Due to the healing properties of the plant has the ability to:

  • Remove the inflammatory process.
  • Improve blood circulation.
  • Reduce pain.
  • Promotes healing of wounds, burns.
  • It is a good antiseptic.

Use in traditional medicine

Using the medicinal qualities of the plant, you can prepare medicines for use - tincture or ointment, many diseases will recede with the help of decoctions and infusions. Fresh pickled leaves and sap from them have not smaller properties.

Onions are useful from root to leaf tips - entirely. The whole plant has a curative effect, but the leaves are more effective, of which they often prepare means for healing. To prepare the funds, try to use the old and large leaves, it is in them that the largest amount of biologically active substances accumulates.

The use of juice for the treatment of:

To remove the pain, cut a small piece from the bulb, no larger than 2 centimeters in size. Milk juice will appear on the cut. Grease the problem area and the juice will begin to act immediately. You will feel a slight tingling sensation, then a burning sensation, which will soon pass away and take with it the pain.

I offer you some recipes for the treatment of diseases.

  1. Headache. Wash fresh juice in the occipital or temporal part of the head.
  2. Toothache. Fresh juice will also help - rub into the gum next to the sick tooth. But be careful that the poisonous milk does not go anywhere. If the gums bleed, then use remedies with onions is strictly contraindicated.
  3. Runny nose In this case, you need to rub fresh juice in the nose and maxillary sinuses.

The effectiveness of treatment depends on the correctness of the preparation of therapeutic agents. Below I give recipes taken from a herbalist.

Therapeutic tincture of onion is prepared in two ways: hot and cold.

  • The recipe for cold cooking tincture: chop the leaves of the plant, and pour a glass of warm boiled water at a temperature not higher than 20 o C. The infusion will be ready in 12 hours.
  • Hot infusion recipe: chop the leaves of Chinese onions, put them in a thermos and pour in 1 liter of boiling water. Cooking time - 2 hours.

Indian onion tincture with alcohol

Put the crushed leaves in a jar, tamp more tightly, and pour in the alcohol. There are a couple of nuances here. Folk healers make tincture in the ratio of 1:10. But if you have sensitive skin, then make a weaker infusion: for 1 part of raw materials, take 20 parts of alcohol. Both types of tincture possess therapeutic properties.

The finished medicine is considered after two weeks of insisting in a dark place. Then it is filtered and stored in the cold.

Onion Base Ointment

To make Indian onion ointment, cut a 20 cm long leaf, make a mush and mix with any interior fat or lanolin cream. Keep the ointment in a glass container only.

Cut a 20-cm sheet and fill with boiling water liter. Heat the broth for half an hour on the water bath, then leave to infuse for another 45 minutes.

Contraindications

I am sure that each of us carefully takes care of our health, and remembers the well-known postulate: “Do no harm”. With all the advantages and medicinal qualities, onions have serious contraindications to use. As I wrote at the beginning of the article, the juice of the bulbs and leaves contains a toxic substance. Therefore, herbalists use it only externally. The golden mustache I wrote about has similar healing properties and uses.

  • When using for the first time products with an Indian plant, carefully monitor your condition - the plant can cause an allergic reaction.
  • Hemophilia is also a serious contraindication.
  • In addition, you need to know that in no case should not allow the ingress of therapeutic agents on the mucous membranes, especially keep your eyes.
  • If using tincture and other means of onion, you feel a strong burning sensation, do not be intimidated. This is a normal phenomenon, thus substances start to act, increasing the flow of blood to the problem area. Soon the burning will pass.

Cheers, friends! I propose to watch a cognitive video about the healing properties of Indian onions and its application. I do not say goodbye, we are waiting for many more interesting meetings. With love ... Galina Nekrasova.

You can also boil them slightly in a water bath, but do not bring the temperature above 50 degrees. In the infusion moisten gauze or cotton, applied to the affected area.

However, the healing properties of Indian onions have been known for a long time, and it finds its widespread use in traditional medicine.

Indian onions curative and beneficial properties

  • glycosides,
  • alkaloids (colchicine, thiocolchicine, kolhamin).

The main active substance that gives a healing effect is colchicine. This is a natural poison, which, when used internally, can cause poisoning of the body.
