Topically; poultice applied to the chest to open the lungs during mucousy coughs.
Cooked onion can be used to draw pus out of wounds. The juice is useful for stings of all types and fungal skin complaints.
Internally; as food to increase urination, lower blood sugar, aid digestion, and increase appetite.


Some people do experience allergies to raw onions. Cooking them appears to eliminate this problem, however most of the medicinal properties are from consuming raw onion.

First Aid

Contact burns can occur on the skin. Wash area with soapy water and allow to air dry. If onion juice is gotten in the eye then rinse with running water for several minutes, if irritation persists seek medical advice.

It's not possible to download individual QRDS at this time.
I am trying to figure out how to make the buttons connect to separate files instead of all of the buttons pointing to the same file

About the QRDS

Quick Reference Data Sheets™, QRDS hereafter, were created to put all essential information about a natural medicine in one place.
They are split into 6 sections, 5 of which you can see above. The omitted section is the chemical constituents. It has been left out of the online version because the majority of readers will not need it. It is included in the PDF.
QRDS are created from textbooks, scientific studies, a government database on natural plant materials and any other relevant resources.
The “Properties” section has the complete list of technical properties which may include some vague terms such as “pectoral”. Vague terms are included to help users assess personal risk of drug interactions with medications not listed on the QRDS.
If a medication affects the same area the risk of an interaction increases compared to a medication that affects a completely different area of the body.
Very rarely there will be a term with no definition available. Those have been left in the hope of finding an obscure reference so I could replace the word with a modern version if appropriate.
The QRDS are given freely for personal use only. Redistributing them in any form, free or otherwise, will result in legal action.
