Onion gargles or "onion teas" were often used to cure sore throats, be they of the bacterial or viral origin. Onions are high in sulphur, a natural component of sulfa antibiotics, and garlic in addition to being a good antiseptic against both viruses and bacteria, has proved to help boost the immune system and lower cholesterol.
